Hoover SteamVac PROS:
Cleans better with hot water
Collects fur and hair in recovery tank (no filters)
Comparable price ($140 at retailer)
Easy to assemble
Easy to clean
Holds a gallon of cleaning solution
No leaks (a few drips)
No unnecessary bells & whistle
Powerful suction
Simple design (easy filling and emptying)
Suction stops when recovery tank fills-up
Three wet strokes and one dry stroke is sufficient
Works with other (non solvent) solutions

Hoover SteamVac CONS:
Can’t center on spots
Flimsy handle on solution tank (hold at bottom)
I did not use the attachments so I can't comment
Recovery tank is slightly less than 1 gallon
The “clean surge” feature is unimpressive
Unattractive but functional
