Can anyone tell me what the difference is between these Hoover models? I
can't tell from their web site (or any place else) what the difference is
(other than the MSRP) between the WidePath and the Agility models.
We have a widepath with auto rinse that works well on our low nap carpet but
some people complain that they don't hold up on carpeting with long yarn.
Don't know anything about the agility. I recently rented a rug doctor when
I was out of town. That did a good job too and might be heavier duty. All
it does is vibrate but it got some very dirty carpeting clean. Probably
better than my hoover. They are available for sale.
Yep, the Rug Doctor does a good job and I've love to own one but they sell
for around $700 or $900 (for the "wide track" version), which unfortunately
is a bit out of my price range. I've heard people mention that they can be
gotten cheaper off eBay and I'm sure that's true, but I'm a little
uncomfortable with buying something like that used.
I buy tons of stuff off ebay mostly used. Buy one from someone with perfect
feedback that says it works and it should be ok. Pay by paypal and you will
probably have puchase protection of $200 to $2000. Better than Best Buy.
Personally I like Hoovers, I think I have a Steam Vac All Terrain.
It's in the basement, so not looking at it. I picked it up at a
Lowes, I seem to live there, and I'm impressed with what it can do to
keep a 10+ year old carpet clean, even with a 5 year old running
Point is, the cleaner I picked up is more expensive upgrade, and based
on consumer reports of a simular model. The point is that I went to
consumer reports and suggest that you check with consumer rating
services, so you can get a comparison of all different models. I find
that I buy an applicance like this, and I end up keeping it for like a
decade. So I don't want to buy junk.
Just my guess....
