The Hoover Max Extract® 77 Multi-Surface Pro Carpet & Hard Floor Cleaner is the upgraded version of Hoover Max Extract 60 (see our review), by adding three special features: brush speed level control, water/rinse selector and multiple floor cleaning tools.

The addition of these features allows users to customize for different cleaning tasks from delicate area carpets to sealed wood floor types.

This model FH50240 Max Extract 77 has a counter-rotating brush unit on the brush head for more scrubbing activities than the Max Extract 60. It has retained all of the technologies such as forced heated air, water recovering from carpet and edge cleaning ability.

The downside is heavyweight and this model is somehow not very durable when compare to Hoover Max Extract 60 (users rate it lower than the Max Extract 60 and tend to pick up the Max Extract 60 more than this unit).
