Product Overview

This MaxExtract deep cleaner is designed to clean a variety of surfaces from carpets to couches and sealed wood floors to tiled floors. This versatile, easy-to-use machine removes water, dirt and grime with pressurized cleaning, and has heated drying for a fast dry time. Features a double chamber nozzle to power wash surfaces with even suction across a wide path, while the automatic detergent system provides the right ratio of detergent and water for the best cleaning results. Patented Hoover SpinScrub brushes gently loosen dirt and clean all sides of carpet and upholstery fibers, with an adjustable speed control for various floor surfaces, including a Spill Pick-Up mode so you don't scrub in spills.

  • MaxExtract Dual V Nozzle Technology -we're pulling up a lot of dirty water so your floors dry fast and you'll be back to living on those deep-cleaned floors quickly
  • Pressurized edge-to-edge cleaning - a wall of pressurized water that loosens and lifts stubborn stains with constant and relentless spray
  • SpinScrub 77 - counter-rotating brushes engineered to surround carpet fibers, removing dirt at every angle; it's like treating your carpet to a deep, massaging salon shampoo
  • SpinScrub setting options - sets your cleaning system by surface: spill pickup mode is suction only, without brush agitation action; gentle scrub mode rotates brushes at slower speed for ceramic tile, linoleum and sealed hardwood floors; power scrub mode maximizes scrubbing action for cleaning carpet and high-traffic areas
  • Heated cleaning - powerful motor with forced heated air to help speed dry time
  • Auto conversion tools - conveniently positioned where they should be - right at your fingertips
  • AutoRinse - sets cleaner to wash with detergent on forward stroke, then automatically rinses with fresh water on the backwards stroke
  • CleanSurge - fingertip control applies extra detergent to stains and heavy traffic areas
  • Smart tanks system - separate tanks for clean and dirty water, so you can easily fill, empty and rinse each tank individually
  • Includes: 32 oz. bottle of 2X professional strength carpet and upholstery detergent, 16 oz. bottle of hard floor detergent, 9 ft. clear active hose, SpinScrub hand tool, upholstery tool, squeegee tool

I think you would have to elaborate more on the type of flooring you have. If it is laminate that looks like tiles, then absolutely it needs sealed! You can use a liquid sealer on it after it is installed that helps keep out water between the 'tiles'.

I think you would have to elaborate more on the type of flooring you have. If it is laminate that looks like tiles, then absolutely it needs sealed! You can use a liquid sealer on it after it is installed that helps keep out water between the 'tiles'. I found that out the hard way when the house I bought from my aunt have supposedly ceramic tiles on the kitchen floor, only to find out later she had been told wrong and they were laminate. She never had them sealed and now there are cracks and buckling in it where the water has gone through and damaged it. Just like all flooring, even wood, you need to actually look at what the manufacturer says needs done, not just what your contractor says. If you have a bad contractor, they may cut corners and telly you wrong. Read Less

Answer: 
Hi Marty! The Max Extract dispenses pressurized water onto your floor. Before using, double check your floors for any worn or separated areas where water can leak into. If you do find any at all, consult the flooring manufacturer before using this product. Hope this helps!

Has Hoover done anything to address the leakage problems that so many of the reviews (almost all of them) have talked about.

Answer: 
Hi Rick, we’ve looked at why a tank may begin leaking. Most commonly, using non-Hoover cleaning solutions, especially those that have bleach, or storing the tank with solution still inside are key causes for the leaks we’ve seen. Our engineers have made some changes to the tank, and all Max Extract 77s sold today include them. That should lessen the likelihood of any leaking even if some solution is left Read More
Hi Rick, we’ve looked at why a tank may begin leaking. Most commonly, using non-Hoover cleaning solutions, especially those that have bleach, or storing the tank with solution still inside are key causes for the leaks we’ve seen. Our engineers have made some changes to the tank, and all Max Extract 77s sold today include them. That should lessen the likelihood of any leaking even if some solution is left in the tank every once in a while. But please never use bleach! That could damage not only the cleaner, but carpets as well.
If you're referring to the mentions of the machine leaking out of the lower back end, we've found that profuse drainage can occur when the tank valve or worn down by using anything other than our detergents. If
You shouldn't have to worry about leaking on your Max Extract 77. Under normal use, your Max Extract should work beautifully.. If you have any more questions or concerns, feel free to email me direct at Ian.McCormick@ttifloorcare.com. Thanks! Read Less

Rated 2.1 out of 5 by 317 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good purchase Machine is easy to use and it does a very good job of cleaning your carpet. May 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent carpet cleaner Did a great job cleaning our carpet. The power attachment did a really great job on the stairs. Never got the stairs this clean with our old Hoover cleaner. March 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Purchase It is extremely tough on soiled and stained carpet. Especially the cleaning solution that came with it as a sample. Just ordered another 64 oz. bottle. March 22, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stupid me, I should have read the reviews 40 square feet into the first use and the brushes stopped rotating. AHHHHH! Turns out the dial that sets the depth of the spin brushes broke. The piece moves an arm that tells the machine to spin the brushes because the foot release is off and the machine is in use. Because the bar could no longer move forward the brushes would never spin again. Seriously frustrating. This cleaner looked so good on paper and made for a great comparison. My Bissell lasted 8 years and this was even loaning it to every relative who ever moved out of an apartment. My Hover... 20 minutes. Time lost trying to fix the problem via phone calls, and emails just to stand in line for my $$$ back. January 14, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Machine Machine does the work. Removes and sucks dirt. Its heavy. The machine moves to the right due to wheel spin right. January 28, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by great machine for first few months I loved this machine for the first 6 months. Until iI was using it, went to dump dirty water, came back and it wouldn't turn back on. The power switch went out, fixed that. turned it on to use it, the drive pin sheared. Fixed that , went to use it again worked fine for all of 10 minutes and the drive pin sheared off again. Few months later when I wasn't so disgusted I replaced the drive pin. Worked great again, for half an hour then it quit sucking up water and the brushes quit rotating. worked on it for a couple days did all the things your supposed to do to fix these problems. Worked good for a little bit tn hen one of the brushes broke off and it quit sucking again. Needless to say, I'M DONE!!! Done with this machine and with Hoover! November 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I recommend it for all dirty carpets. Before cleaning make sure you have moisture barrier padding under the carpet before cleaning. The machine is loud. The machine does clean well. Make sure you have moisture barrier padding otherwise the water will leak to the padding and its harder to suck all the water and chances of fungus or mold. The machine is heavy and requires 2 hands to control depending upon how thick your carpet is. Ours carpet is 1 inch thick with 8 lbs moisture barrier padding. It was on sale so I chose to purchase. Great for on carpet and vinyl or concrete cleaning. October 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst Hoover steam cleaner ever. Replacement for the professional carpet cleaner purchased in 2010 with a five year warranty that was discontinued. At the time this was new steam cleaner agreed for replacement at 4 years. The professional model had spinscrub brushes and a round roller performed excellently and has superior suction although it was heavy and bulky This was an expensive model so thought comparable. This model has only spinscrub brushes for me this model has failed to extract carpet dirtt has not performed to my expectation am very disappointed. Have had three Hoover's previously. If I could give it a zero rating that is how it rated for me. Would not recommend Hoover. June 14, 2016
