Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Washer, FH50150 ReviewsI have tested and evaluated 5 rug scrubbing machines in the last 2 years and the Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Washer is the latest. Since I have plenty of other machines to compare this unit with, this review is almost writing itself. I have found the Hoover brand to be very reliable for both vacuums and carpet cleaners and had no reason to think otherwise regarding the Hoover Scrub Deluxe. Did it meet my expectations for quality and easy of use? Read on McDuff! The Deluxe comes almost fully assembled with just a couple screws that need attaching. Piece of cake, anyone can do it and quickly. The unit is a bit on the smaller side but that makes it easy to handle and easier to store. Having bad arthritis I find the smaller size is better for me, especially since water weighs so much. Less water, less weight. Works for me! Overall build quality is fine. Almost everything is a combination of different plastics, some rubber and a bit of metal thrown in here and there. Made in China of course, but what today isn't? The motor is a bit noisy but that is the case with ALL my carpet cleaners and is to be expected. Filling and emptying the machine is pretty easy and caused me no trouble. The automatic "stop" function kicks in when the rubber stopper in the tank reaches the top and cuts off your suction, alerting you it is time to dump the tank and refill to continue cleaning. Sounds good in theory but the machine is a bit touchy and simply bumping into my couch leg made the stopper jump up and shut off suction. Turning it off and on again resets the cycle but for someone who is busy cleaning it is a bit of a hassle in that regard because everyone is going to run into this little glitch on occasion. Apparently removing the mesh filter can circumvent this from happening and If you vacuum the item you wish to clean thoroughly before using you should be able to get away with removing it. (picked this up from another Amazon reviewer and sure wished I had seen that tip before I started my tests) I had no issues with the hose popping out during use. In fact, I thought all the parts that you attach were solidly made and attached/detached easily compared to some other brands I have tried. Between the "spin-scrub" tool and the smaller upholstery tool you can handle most furniture cleaning jobs. As another reviewer has noted the sprayer can make a bit of a mess as the area spayed is a bit wider than what I would like for smaller items although it worked fine on my couch, at least until I got to the ends. You get a starter container of cleaning solution (16oz) and as far as I can tell any brand should work when you go to buy more. I own a Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 and I prefer this Hoover for easy of use and overall flexibility. Even the build quality is comparable. This Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe gets my carpet just as clean and at $300 less than the Rug Doctor I think that is a pretty good endorsement. It is smaller and takes a bit longer to cover the same area, but for me ease of use trumps just about everything else. Once you get used to the machine you can go pretty fast with it. Recommended as a good value overall.. this is my Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Washer, FH50150 reviews
