Hoover H3060 Floormate Spinscrub 800 Wet/Dry Vacuum Cleaner Review



Avg. consumer rating = 82/100 

This is an interesting vacuum cleaner.  A review of hundreds of comments seems to indicate that you either love this machine or you hate it.  This is a tricky review – and it could be that consumer’s expectations of a wet/dry vacuum cleaner are quite varied.   We see comments that it is too loud, followed by comments that it is fairly quiet, and several buyers feel that it does an excellent cleaning job while others are not as convinced.  It may also be (and we have read this too on occasion) that it requires a little practice to learn to use properly and one has to get the settings just right.  Having said that, there are clearly more consumers that like the vacuum as seen by the scores in Consumer Rating Table.

There are quite a few consumer reviews of this particular machine (we see some 569 in the following table), and they are, in general reasonably good:
