The Max Extract® 60 Pressure Pro Deep Carpet Cleaner is Hoover original carpet cleaner design series, besides the Steamvac series. Hoover Max Extract 60 is the most popular in this series. Like it’s big brother the Max Extract® 77 Multi-Surface Pro Carpet & Hard Floor Cleaner this is also one of Hoover’s discontinued models, but you can still find them online.

This model has the ability to remove dirt and pet hairs out of the carpet amazingly. The heated forced air also helps the carpet to dry faster. One of the biggest differences between the Max Extract 60 FH50220 and Max Extract 77 FH50240 models is that the Extract 60 is not designed to work on hard floors.

Hoover Max Extract 60 uses a patented counter-spinning brush unit on a brush head for loosening, removing and extracting them out of the carpet. Afterwards, the carpet is dried faster with its heated forced air.

On the downside, it does not have the water/rinse selector (like the Max Extract 77) which will allow you to wash the carpet without the need to change the water. Therefore, after washing the carpet, you need to empty the water tank and fill with tap water for removing the detergent residues.
