"Remanufactered: to refurbish (a used product) by renovating and reassembling its components", that is the definition and I feel that Hoover should have never let one of their reman products ship out without NEW brush heads. The brush head is a critical wear item it and it is ludicrous to sell this floor cleaner with the same brush it was returned with.
All that said, I give it two stars because it does work and I would buy one again...BUT ONLY NEW. Now I have to waste time trying to glue broken pieces and find a replacement brush head.
This newer model is much better made, easy to use and clean. I have a large area of the house with ceramic tile and 1/2 inch grout. This machine handles it with ease. It not only vacuums the floors but then readily washes them even down into the grout while picking up the dirty water. You'll be amazed with just how much dirt it picks up. The scrubbing brushes and other parts are easy to take apart for clean up and it only takes a moment to do so.
One of the things I like best is the fact that this machine, because of the size of the scrubbing head, will fit right under your cabinet edges to clean that hard to reach area. Many question if they have to use the Hoover floor cleaning product exclusively and through some internet research I've found that Mr Clean works great in this machine. Their new Febreeze scented cleaner does a great job while leaving a not overwhelming scent in the house.
My Scooba has been relegated to small area clean ups.
The first unit I got had a missing brush and squeegee assembly, the bottom cord hook had stress damage but was not cracked. The replacement unit I received was even worse. The detergent tank had cracks on the locking mechanism, the cord hook was cracked halfway and only 1 plastic peg was holding it in place. I already taped the box for return when I read the first review on this item that mentioned worn out brushes. I took a quick look and was very surprised to see that bristles are no longer straight. My old Floormate brush that was 6 years old had better brushes than this one!
These units do not appear to be remanufactured at all. They simply cleaned it and put it back in the box. I'm not reordering another refurb Hoover. The box is too small that the cord hook is touching the box so it is sure to be damaged during shipping. Terrible quality control on Hoover's part.
Hoover should put new brushes in their refurbs. The brushes are a wear item and selling you a refurb with brushes more than halfway worn is not a good deal. The box also does not include the detergents.
A new 3040 Floormate comes with 2 brushes. One grout brush and the standard hardfloor brush. It also comes with 2 bottles of chemicals.
On top of all that, when I went to return it, I found that one of the pieces that you snap together when you're assembing it is a one-way operation, meaning that it cannot be removed and so the unit will not fit back in the box. I called Amazon to ask about this, and the lady said that based on the notes, everyone who returned it had to break the handle to get it back in the box. I managed to remove some screws and disassemble it, but I was glad to get rid of it.
Ultimately, I got the Shark ultimate steam pocket mop, which worked wonders on my floors. That thing is amazing, and I highly recommend it over this one. It cleaned the floors better, is lighter, and doesn't require special solution.

Works well. I just wish the containers of water were bigger so that it could clean a larger area at a time...Published 19 months ago by Precious Di
