Summary: This machine works well and is easy to assemble. Directions are simple and working it is pretty self-explanatory. The only reason it loses a star, is because the rotating brushes on the bottom only rotate when you are actively pushing the machine back and forth.
Summary: I bought the Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Washer after I had my carpets (supposedly) cleaned by a big name carpet cleaner. I cleaned my carpets again with my new Carpet Washer and they came out way better. This machine is lightweight, compared to other carpet cleaners.
Summary: You can use really "hot tap" water with it. Very easy to operate, very simple. You can do a through rinse, then wash, and rise again. It does have a short cord than most, but I have extension cords anyway. Brought the carpet back to life!
