Consumer reports has this one and the compact one rated highly. This one is $200 new, so seems like a good deal
Very disappointed. The box came and two parts (cap for water tank and bristle attachment for 2 in 1 antimicrobial attachment) plus the instructions were missing. I tried using tonight and cleaning fluid and fresh water run out before turning on. The cleaning solution was gone after just washing a 2 foot by 7 foot carpet piece, and I have a large spot saturated with the cleaning fluid. I added the cleaning fluid and then filled the water tank. By the time I got back to machine half the cleaning fluid had leaked out—took just two minutes. I’ve purchased several factory reconditioned items and they were working properly, and for years. Very disappointed. I’m waiting to hear from customer service about the missing parts, the leaking tanks make this a no go for me. I hope Hoover will replace as I really want a carpet cleaner.
