Summary: We are selling our house and looked at the cost of having a company come in and clean our carpets verses purchasing a cleaner and doing it ourselves. They were similarly priced so we opted to purchase this and it worked wonderfully.
Summary: I bought this to clean tile floors. The "squeegie" didn't fit on the nozzle and wouldn't stay on. I went to a vacuum store to get a new part and that one didn't fit either - they said it was manufactured wrong. It sprayed way to much water on the floor and didn't extract it back up. I returned it.
Summary: After several weeks of research I came to the decision to try the Hoover MaxExtract 77 after 7 years of my Bissel. I realized from the first time I used my Bissel that it lacked the suction needed to actually remove the water/cleaner that it was depositing into my carpet.
Summary: Cleaner scrubbed my carpets very well and removed stubborn stains. Thought it would be heavy to push, but it was easy. Easy to dump dirty water and to replace clean water when needed. Very easy to clean the machine when finished.
Summary: I have tried many steam vacs and floor cleaners and most of them leave my carpet soaking wet. This one has the nice heater that helps to dry the carpet and my carpet isn't wet for three days. I love this and would recommend it to anyone.
Summary: Great carpet cleaner, I was surprised by how my carpet turned out. It was my first cleaning to my carpet in 3 years. The stains that were there so long were cleaned when I used my Bissell. I love the way my house smells with the cleaner carpet. Great machine for the money.
Summary: The unit worked great just as described. There is a few things to keep in mind. If like me I had to buy a machine because it was getting noticeable. Do to the extra dirt/what ever is on carpet I had to press the extra soup button a lot. You will run out of soup before water.
Summary: It had been awhile since I cleaned my carpet and it looks great after I used this. Old one broke a few months ago. Had to empty and fill the tanks more than my old one but it is worth the effort.
