The Hoover FH51300NC Pet Premium Carpet Washer provides a fast and heavy-duty deep clean for homes with pets. Its DualTECH Cleaning System combines a powerful, rotating brushroll and our patented SpinScrub Brushes so you can target your toughest spots and stains for a 360 degree clean. The removable 15″ Wide Path Nozzle and one gallon clean water tank lets you cover large areas with less hassle, and convenient features like Clean Boost Control delivers extra detergent to stubborn stains. Power wash hard-to-reach areas and upholstery with the Complete Accessory Tool Pack, then enjoy a fast dry time with Heated Cleaning.

This Hoover FH51300NC is the newest upright model from Hoover, it has the dual brush design which can tackle old stains and pet stains with 2 folding cleaning ability therefore if you have to deal with a lot of spillages, messes and stains or soils, this model can be a good choice.

Second, the FH51300NC uses a super large cleaning path width up to 15 inches (a casual upright unit has the cleaning path of 11.25 in or 13 in only). The extended cleaning path width allows cleaning bigger area in shorter time.

Another important feature of an upright model is the water/ rinse selector which lets you wash the carpet with water only without changing the water. This feature is also found on the Hoover Pet Premium FH51300NC (you can see other Hoover best-rated models have the same water/rinse selector such as Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe or Hoover Power Scrub Elite).

This model suitable for cleaning homes and apartments, large or small. Its designed to be lightweight, easy-to-use, and consumers can choose which one to own based on their cleaning needs.

The model comes with a complete accessory tool pack for flexible cleaning other places such as upholstery, stair, and car.

Product Features:

  • DualTECH Cleaning System combines the innovation of SpinScrub Technology with a powerful rotating brushroll to create our best carpet cleaning system
  • 15″ Removable Wide Path Nozzle covers cleaning the first time around
  • Dual Tank Technology separates clean and dirty water for easy filling and emptying
  • Clean Boost Control adds extra detergent to stubborn stains
  • Wash and Rinse Mode Selection lets you easily wash then rinse your carpets
  • Heated Cleaning applies hot water and hot air directly to carpets
  • Large Tank Capacity lets you fill and empty less frequently
  • Complete Accessory Tool Pack cleans cracks, crevices, furniture and anything in between
  • Powered Pet Stain Tool deep clean pet messes with our Powered Pet Stain Tool
  • No Tools Assembly. lets you put together your carpet washer with ease
  • 3-year limited warranty
  • Includes one 16 oz bottle of solution, one mesh storage bag, one powered SpinScrub Pet StainTool, one Pre-Treater Wand, one 8′ hose, one upholstery tool


Besides these innovative features which you can only found in this Hoover FH51300NC Pet Premium, the unit still have all of the highly rated features from other Hoover models such as

  • Heated cleaning – this unit uses hot air for faster carpet drying time
  • Clean surge – apply more detergents to the heavy traffic area for better cleaning results
  • Pretreatment kit and onboard tools
  • Auto mixing detergent
  • Motor power 10 amps rating


On the downside, you should realize this model is a bit heavy (mentioned on site it is 28 lbs. ) therefore it is not very maneuverable like Hoover Power Scrub Elite or Deluxe. The model is much more suitable for those looking for a heavy-duty cleaning machine in replace of Bissell Big Green or Rug Doctor Mighty Pro but at a less expense and lower performance.

Final Conclusion:

In general, this is a great carpet cleaner. The only problem is that similar to the basic Hoover Dual Power, there has been a few complaints that the belt parts broke.

This is a basic Hoover Dual Power carpet washer. It a lightweight machine that is best recommended for cleaning small areas, rooms or spots. Great for a small carpeted apartment or for cleaning area rugs.
