Hoover Max Extract Dual V

Hoover Max Extract Dual V WidePath Carpet Washer Review
Hoover Max Extract Dual V WidePath Carpet Cleaner can be a great alternative if you are looking for a low price carpet washer that can not only clean your carpets and furniture, but to also bring life back into them, even when they are starting to look dull. As one of the older Hoover models on the market, the Dual V Wide Path is currently sold for a very reasonable price and even though you won’t find some of the advanced features offered by newer models like or , you will still get a lot of value for your investment. Dual V WidePath should not be confused with a Steam Cleaner, as it does not use high pressured steam, it works by adding water to the chosen surface, it then scrubs the surface whilst sucking up all the dirt removed from the surface.



  • 12-amp Carpet Cleaner that has rotating brushes to remove even more dirt than standard Carpet Cleaners do.
  • Wide path nozzle with 6 brushes provides a wide cleaning path for faster cleaning
  • Spin scrub hand tool for stairs and furniture
  • Automatic detergent mixing
  • 12 amp motor and heated cleaning (the machine does not heat the water, it just keeps it hot)
  • Dual V Technology produces equal suction across the surface you are cleaning, to make sure every part of your surface is equally as clean
  • Comes with 3 speed settings: Spill Pick-up, Gentle Scrub and Power Scrub
  • 1 year warranty



  • Dual V manages to remove most of the dirt and stains in a single pass. You’ll have to make a few more passes for tougher stains though.
  • The automatic mixing system saves you the trouble of mixing water and detergent manually and prevents any mistakes.
  • Different speed settings allow laser-targeted cleaning for different types of carpets/stains.
  • The upholstery tools are very useful and help to clean all types of furniture.
  • The rotating brushes make sure that all carpet fibers are cleaned thoroughly.



  • Some users complain about leakage. Most of the time, it’s caused by using alternative cleaning solutions and not Hoover’s own detergent. So, it’s simple to avoid. With that said, since branded solutions are more expensive than home-made or alternative detergents, you may end up spending a lot of money on cleaning solutions to prevent leakage.
  • It is also very heavy when compared to other Carpet Cleaners which is a major disadvantage, especially if you have to take it upstairs.
  • The noise level is also a bit higher than what we have seen on other models.



All in all, Hoover Max Extract Dual V WidePath Carpet Cleaner is a decent model sold for a very reasonable price, especially when you are comparing it to the price a professional cleaner would charge. In addition to offering a wide range of cleaning tools, Dual V can also clean almost anything in any area of the home. However I would not recommend this if you are going to struggle getting it upstairs. If the weight will be a problem for you, you may check out the other models we have reviewed .
