Machine with the same styled brushes in the USA ("PowerScrub 50" written in green) has an Amazon review complaining about rust breaking these machines quickly. Google "Company is oblivious to the issues with SpinScrub Brushes" to see ("2,489 people found this helpful". !! ). Anyone had issues with the head jamming up on this machine?

No! Any machine you do not clean out, clean off brushes or clean out fluid tanks will have the same problem ! Never seen or had rust anywhere on my Hoover ! Includes mobile stairs car ckeaning kit as well . Suggest the negative feedback is owner / operator laziness and lack of maintenace tbe problem! Had mine and the matching shampoo machine 2 years now ,is still like new ! Says in the manual to clean it out thoroughly after every use! Easy to do ! Better tham tigers I gave had too! Vac is 10 times better than my Dyson I had to maintain operate and ckean out ! Shsmpoo mavhine as good as commercial one ! Lifts the carpet off the underlay and washes that as well ! Hunting fishing household with many pets! No problems !

These hoovers are grade 3+ plus machines ! Means the higher the rated number the better the machines are ! Ask before buying any machine ! Also check out has replacement filters back up parts available and good warranty ! Pay peanuts you get monkey machines !

Thanks Max ! Although I'm not sure what a 3+ plus machine is (no hits even on the Google) !!! Anyways, does make sense the machine should last if cared for properly! But in the end decided on a more reasonably price multi-purpose cleaner !!! Even assuming this machine is fine if well treated, for me the deal breaker was that the Godfrey's price is just ridiculous compared to the same level Hoovers on Amazon USA !!! Darn it, I've gone and typed too many of these exclamation mark things!

As far as I can see the brand name "Hoover" is really just a Godfreys only thing in Australia. 500 on their current special (which I think are frequent). Looking myself, which is why I posted the question about rusty heads

Kathryn , no such special deals here in NZ! I payed $640 for mine in a package deal with a vac same brand ! To get such a good product fir that price is a real bargain ! The design makes it easy to service the fluids and wash out the collection container quickly and easily ! Pay the money ! You will never regret it! Cheers Global Grandad NZ .

How well does it clean hard floors as I was looking to buy this to replace my SpinSrub FloorMate? The FloorMate cleaned extremely well but has a design flaw which allows the water to splash up into the motor and then burns out.

Where did people buy their Hoover Gladiators? I assume Godfreys?
And how much did they pay?

I am impressed with the reviews but extremely dubious about buying anything from those shysters.

Hi.

Yes I bought from Godfreys. It was in a bundle with a vacuum too but I think the price was around $600. So happy I bought it!

Mine also was purchased from Godfreys at around $600. They are considerable cheaper than that now $278. I do notice that some are available through Gumtree from time to time. If you do purchase one - just a word of advice in relation to cleaning the carpet (this advice is from a professional) rather than using the auto shampoo mixture on the machine I am told it is best to make up a mixture of water and carpet shampoo in a sprayer ( 5 -7 litre.) and spray the carpet first and then simply using the wash action - wash the carpet. I use Agar Carpet Shampoo (5 litre.) which I purchase from Godfreys. It is definitely a cheaper option than buying in smaller quantities. Hope this helps.
