I got this after Hoover replaced the Deluxe 2x. The motor on the deluxe keep breaking . I do about 3000 sq feet a week . For this model I am hoping it stands up . The deluxe has a motor of 3.5 amps while this model has a 6.5 amp . The other positive over the Deluxe is that is does get the edges better and it has a longer better cord. What I consider a drawback : tanks are about half the size , it only has one type of brush, while the deluxe has both tile and wood floor brushes. It does seem not to suck up the water as well as the deluxe, TBH I dont have a clue why , it has a bigger motor. Hoover is the only one on the market for this kind of cleaner . you can find tons of vaccuums but , only one type of hard floor cleaner that actually scrubs and picks up the dirty water. I am in Florida and carpet is being fazed out . There is a big market here. Hoover is not bad, but it has the deluxe which does an excellent job , but the motor is not strong enough to handle weekly heavy...
I bought this locally because I had a coupon at a chain store so it was cheaper. My honest opinion is that this is not superior at getting floors clean over a traditional mop & bucket, but it does a decent job.

Some really stuck on spots of food and dirt did not come off and it didn't get into the grout really well. However, I still like it because for me it's easier on my back and shoulders than a mop. It is pretty lightweight and easy for me to push and pull. You need to go over the floor very slowly for it to scrub and suck the water back up which I can see being annoying and time consuming to some people, but I like that I can move slowly instead of having to really scrub with my arms because the machine does the scrubbing for you. The drying feature is great, it really sucks the water up and my floor...
