on Hoover Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner, FH40150
My husband read the manual that describes both models. I thought I was getting the "Deluxe 40160" but received the 40150. He said he did not see any difference between the two except, as you mentioned, the price. I have 2 cats. After using the Floormate, my floors have never looked cleaner.
Hi Doodle, the main differences are that FH40160 have larger capacity tanks and include two sets of brushes. One for wood, the other for tile & grout. The FH40150 includes a multi-surface brush set. Hope this helps.

I had an older model floor mate before I bought this one,as well. I never looked at anything but the Walmart one that I bought but I can tell you that I love this new one so much better than my old one. The head is narrower which is great because now I can clean the tile around my toilets. I also love the way the tanks are on the sides now instead of stacked. They're much more user friendly on the sides if you like to get the chore over with very quickly.
