Hoover Max Extract 60 Carpet Cleaner Review

I would like to say I feel the Hoover Max Extract 60 is an excellent value for the money. 

At this point, I have used this carpet cleaner three different times and it is definitely an upgrade from my last carpet cleaner.  Yes, I will admit my other carpet cleaner was over 20 years old.

I think my favorite feature is the SmartTank feature.  The one tank that collects the dirty water is HUGE and easy to empty.  And not only can you empty it, it is easy to rinse and clean out.  This is perfect as I know when I put my carpet clean way it is clean and ready for its next use.  I did notice a positive difference with the pressurized cleaning Hoover Max offers.  It really helped pull the dirt and grime from our carpets and couch.

The Hoover Max was easy to put together and only required a screwdriver.  Simple and easy to follow instructions were provided. 

The Hoover Max was easy to maneuver around the house and furniture. 

The heated cleaning feature is nice, but still left our carpets damp.  It did make them substantially drier, but I still used a fan to help finish the carpet drying process.  I am concerned how the hose is going to hold up. 

It feels very cheap and almost brittle.  I have had no problems too far, so only time will tell.

I would recommend this carpet cleaner with the performance it has shown up to this point.  I feel it represents the Hoover name and makes carpet cleaning a breeze.

Disclosure: I received a sample of this product to facilitate my review, but my opinions are entirely my own.


  1. I found this article whilst looking for othe rinformation on carpet cleaning however I used to own a Hoover Max Extract and thought it was a great little machine.

  2. Finding a good carpet cleaner is never easy. Some of my neighbors have tried different carpet cleaners, but they never found a good machine that would make their carpet cleaning faster and more convenient. It’s nice that your machine can be easily cleaned after use. That is a big advantage because some carpet cleaning machines are really hard to clean, and sometimes, the dirt sticks to machine itself.
