The Hoover story begins in 1907. Murray Spangler, an inventor who worked nights as a janitor, had an asthma problem. He called upon his inventor's creativity to find a solution to the dust that aggravated his asthma as he swept up at night. Spangler gathered a tin soap box, a fan, a sateen pillow case and a broom handle, and assembled an odd-looking, cumbersome contraption that managed to pull the dust away from the air he breathed. He quickly realized that this "suction sweeper," as he called it, had enormous sales potential, and he began seeking financial backing. W.H. "Boss" Hoover, owner of a leather goods manufacturing shop, bought the patent from Spangler in 1908, retained him as a partner, and soon had six employees assembling six units a day in a corner of the leather goods shop. Now that's a humble beginning.

Bring home a Hoover SteamVac DualV Widepath Carpet Cleaner and never rent a heavy machine again! Deep clean your carpets and upholstery any time you need to, year-round. Hoover SpinScrub rotating brushes surround carpet fibers to lift dirt and grime, while the DualV nozzle removes dirty water from carpeting efficiently. Six rotating brushes in the Widepath nozzle cover more carpet in a single pass, so you can finish the job faster. Easy-to-empty dual tanks keep dirty and clean water separate. Powerful 12-amp motor provides a thorough clean and the SpinScrub powered hand tool cleans stairs and upholstery.

Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 67 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 love it!!! I love my machine, I would be lost without it with my kids around. Its a convience that I rely on otherwise the professionals would be at my house every 2-3 months and that can get pricey. 11/13/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Carpet Cleaner Bought this machine on 11/4 with some trepidation as to it's ability to clean as well as a rental. After using it, I can say I am extremely pleased with this machine's cleaning abilities!!!! It is light weight thus quite easy to maneuver when in use. Having the waste water catch separate is also a great plus! I was amazed at the amount of dirt it pulled up from the carpet and the effectiveness of the suction coupled with the heat blowing as it sucks up the water. This was especially important to me since we have a dog. I never really noticed how much a home smells like a pet and how quickly you grow accustom to those smells. The very first thing I noticed after using it was how much cleaner the house smelled as a whole. I have read some reviews complaining about the length of the power cord, the length of the hose attachment, I did not find either of these items too short for use. I also used it to clean my sofa, and while it did a noticeably decent job I felt the job would have been done better had the Spin Scrub hand tool been included for use. Which brings me to my limited complaints of the item. This tool (according to the box and the manual) should have been a part of the purchase, it was not. Also the tool organized that holds the attachment hose feel very cheap and does not do and effective job of holding the hose in place while in use. I ended up taking the hose off completely so that it would not interfere while using. I have also read reviews where the brushes have broken while being used; while my experience has been positive where the brushes are concerned ( and I wasn't exactly gentle with the machine but was careful with it) I plan on buying a brush assembly to have in reserve for if such an issue does occur. Nothing would upset a person more than being in the middle of cleaning and have the brush set up break. Besides, it is a one piece unit that simply pulls out for cleaning and pushed right back in when putting together. While I do feel the spin scrub tool should have been included, you can go to the Hoover website and purchase the item for $33, they also have the brush assembly there for $15 I think. Kind of a no brainier to have these items available to you at your residence when looking at the relatively small cost me thinks :-) I hope this review is helpful 11/9/12
Rated 1 out of 5 by Clunky, FAIL I need to replace my Hoover Agility and this model was a big FAIL. Got 5 X 5 area done, emptied dirty water tank and brushes stopped rotating, so it was not distributing the water evenly and leaving streaks of water lines. The tank system is a pain too. Difficult to get in and out and not very stable. The carpets dried fast and I think I like the separation of the cleaning fluid from the water. If you buy the model at Home Depot, you are going to get gyped out of the stair attachment. It's not included. 11/19/12
Rated 2 out of 5 Durability? What durability? Purchased this online on November 12, 2012. First model arrived DOA - I had suction but the spin brushes would not spin. The online retailer sent me a replacement on November 19, 2012. Since then, I have used this machine approximately 4 times to clean the carpet in my apartment. Until it stopped working, I would say that it did an admirable job of cleaning the carpet. Not fantastic or mind blowing, but sufficient for my needs. Of course, before using it I would vacuum thoroughly to remove pet hair and whatnot from the carpet. Today, just as I was finishing the main living area the brushes stopped spinning and I smelled the distinct odor of a motor burning out. I do not know what happened or why. I do know that I cleaned the machine before and after each use and made sure to clean all of the filters. On top of thoroughly vacuuming before each use, I can only blame Hoover for selling an inferior product. The machine still has suction, but it's useless without having the motor spin the brushes. Ugh. I expected better from Hoover. 11/15/12
