Where to Buy
 

Like other Hoover SteamVac carpet cleaners, the Dual V Widepath F7411-900 has a 12-amp motor, rotating brushes, a built-in heater and automatic rinsing. It receives generally positive reviews from owners, though a few complain that the plastic parts -‑ including the tank ‑- break easily. We also found a number of complaints about leaks and mechanical malfunctions, such as brushes that stop spinning. The vast majority of users posting reviews of this model to retailer websites compliment its cleaning performance, effective suction and ease of use. However, the less expensive Hoover SteamVac with Clean Surge F5914-900 (Est. $140) receives higher average ratings and more owner reviews than the Dual V Widepath.

The Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath F7411-900 hasn't been included in any professional tests, and there aren't as many user reviews for it as there are for some other models. However, we did find more than 780 owner ratings and comments altogether at Amazon.com, and Epinions.com.
