Big Green Is A Mean Carpet Cleaning Machine

By Jay H. from Reading, PA, USA on 10/09/2015

So, Bissell send's me a big discount offer on Big Green. I did not need a carpet cleaner, i bought it because i can not turn down a bargain...Anyway i'm glad i did, this thing is AWESOME. It is big but i think the weight helps with removing the solution(good suction) and the dirt. The carpet dries fast and the provided Bissell 2X Professional cleaning solution smells like a flower garden.

over two years old- still amazing

By 3dogsinhouse from Darien Center, NY on 10/09/2015

I purchased this machine after we got two new puppies, we already had a beagle. The new dogs are a larger hunting bred and we have a doggie door to a fenced in yard. That means a lot of mud coming into the house during spring thaw and fall. This machine has done a wonderful job, I use it constantly and it has performed great. Carpets still look new after each cleaning. It also does a great job on my vinyl floors. I have had no problems with it and it gets used a lot. I waited over two years to do this review because I wanted to make sure it holds up. Great product. Would recommend to anyone, especially a dog owner. A must have.

I am in love with this machine!

By Supermom with messy family! from Louisiana on 09/22/2015

If I could give the Big Green Cleaning Machine 100 stars, I would! I used to use the popular professional carpet cleaning company for a few years to clean my carpet but was disappointed because stains reappeared. Then I tried renting the other big cleaner myself, the one that only cleans going in one direction, for the past few years to clean my carpet, and thought that was the best thing since sliced bread. I have been want to purchase one for a long time, but did not want to spend the money. Okay my carpet has not been cleaned in a long time, and it was grimy, full of stains, and horrible! Well I started researching online for the best carpet cleaner available, and I decided to buy the Big Green instead because of all the five star reviews and videos available. Well I got it home, and used it, and I am bowled over and amazed at what a superb job it has done on my carpet, which I was sadly thinking I would have to replace. I used the Bissell pretreat in very minimal places because just the Bissell cleaning solution alone got 99% of the stains out, and I am talking ground in dirt! If you're on the fence about getting the cleaner, it's the best one out there period, and I highly recommend it. Only sorry that I didn't get one a long time ago and had it here to used when needed and my carpet would have never gotten so badly stained! Convenience of having it here and not having to lug a rental home and rush to clean the carpets so I could get it back to the store on time is a big added plus! My ten year old light carpet is now completely stain free, and I am a happy woman!

The real deal

By Jake117 from RI on 09/16/2015

This is the real deal, I had an older Bissell with the heater and it was great but this, this is way better. Worth the money too. The only con I have for this machine is that it doesn't heat the water up like the lesser models however the brushes are superior.

My new Big Green carpet cleaner

By R from MA on 08/26/2015

I am very happy with the Bissell carpet cleaner 86T3. This review is right after using it first time. Easy to install and easy to use. My rooms are dust free after using the cleaner. Hoping it will keep the dust controlled with future uses. Overall am very happy to have bought it!

Works great!!

By bmwgidget from Oregon on 08/16/2015

This worked amazingly!! We used 2 caps full of the cleaner and added 1 cap of white vinegar. We used the spot treatment spray and sprayed all stains first, including dog potty stains that we could never get completely out. Each time we went over the heavy traffic areas, the more the dirt and stains came out!! It sucks up the water great and the next day our carpets were completely dry. Our carpet is thick simi shag with thick padding. When we had it professionly cleaned by a company a few years ago, it took 3-4 days for it to be completely dry. I will always use this Big Green Bissell Machine! Excellent price and excellent job!!

Love this machine!!!!

By justthings from Stafford, VA on 08/02/2015

I have 3 dogs and 2 kids so dirt and mud is constantly brought into my house along with other messes that happen. I've purchased 3 other machines within the past two years that don't seem to last but I thought I was satisfied with results. When the last one stopped working I decided to rent one of these and was I impressed. I decided to buy the big green and one year later it's still going and I'm still impressed with what this thing pulls out of my carpets. it's also nice to walk across the room and not have wet socks.

Big Green Cleaning Machine

By mariya from Idaho, USA on 07/27/2015

HI the big green is the best machine that i have used in years. It is powerful. It is easy to use. My carpets i thought were clean by another machine , not so. I thought Id try a machine that you rent you know the one. however I didn't want everyone else dirt in my carpets, so instead I bought the big green machine. It . Cleans better than the one that you rent, and when i want to use it i just go to the closet. Thanks for making a great machine that is tried and true and the name has been around for so many years. If your on the fence about this big green machine don't be you will get great clean carpets. i'm a fan for life

BLOWN AWAY!!!

By pianoman0891 from Undisclosed on 07/26/2015

First off, let me give you an idea of the situation I had set out to tackle. 10 years ago I moved into my current home and was delighted to see similar carpet as my previous home. White textured berber. I soon realized they were cut of two separate cloths. Or carpets rather. After some investigation I learned that my previous carpet was made of nylon and these carpets of olefin. Olefin is cheaper but known for releasing stains. The problem is it let's the stain roll right off it and into the padding whereas nylon holds it more in the fiber itself. Nylon holds water therefore is easier to extract from. Countless times I've tried to clean these olefin devils and the stains go away and reappear in some time because it's so hard to actually suck the water out of it as it has settled under the carpet. Professionals, dry cleaning, a kirby purchase. And I've found an answer!!!! Just as I was about to replace my carpets this machine saves the day! It is a miracle. My guess is that it pulls the dirty water out better than my previous attempts professionals included because the results have literally blown my mind!!!!! Easy to use. Huge water capacity. And suction for days!!! I've cleaned many carpets in my days but these have proven to be the hardest. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE have NO doubts about the cleaning power of this machine. BUY IT! I am certain you won't be dissapointed!

Best Bissell yet

By Jules63 from Spencer, OH 44275, USA on 07/17/2015

I have purchase less expensive Bissell's in the past and they were good, but this machine is the best. It is very easy to use. Has great capacity and suction. It has cleaned up pet stains, juice box stains, ground in path dirt in well used carpet and upholstery. Made my 11 year old carpet look almost new again and everything smells and looks great.

Easy is the one word I'd use to describe the 86T3.

By psr52 from South Weymouth, Weymouth, MA 02190, USA on 07/05/2015

Our household has owned the Bissell with the large rolling tank and hoses everywhere for many many years. What a refreshing change to get the Big Green. It is a fairly large unit, but ever so easy to use because all functions are self-contained. I'd never want to go back to the old style units after having this. Cleaning is very thorough and easy to tell when you empty the dirty water. You can also see how much cleaner the carpets look after you've finished and the carpets have dried. The same is true with upholstery.

Love, love, love this machine

By Dot from New Wilmington, PA on 06/25/2015

I just love, love, love this machine. Don't waste your money on any other machine. This is it!! Had a Big Green canister years ago - loved it. Could never find anything comparable until this machine. If you have pets or children you can't go wrong. I pride myself in being a neat freak. But when I used this machine the first time, I was shocked. Could not believe the dirt that it pulled out. Absolutely amazing!!!!

this machine is amazing!

By Emmy82 from Southern Illinois on 06/14/2015

I am so glad I bought this cleaner. Have used several times at my own house and my mothers (her carpet is 30 years old). It makes her carpet brand new looking! Very easy to use! Is a little heavy to lift up and down stair but the way it cleans its totally worth it.

Jaw Dropping Results

By Bklyndior from Brooklyn, NY on 04/30/2015

We have a 3br 2Full Bath , open living, dining , kitchen concept. Its one floor & There is carpet, EVERYWHERE except the kitchen & Bath rooms. It was annoying at first, but got used to & accepted it. It was a Brand new place, no one else's dirt, but after 2 yrs & a toddler, its seen better days. We tried everything.. Probably more than everything.. to get the winter dirt/slush & rain mud, juice, baby spills, spots from other cleaners & whatever else that was in there! My husband found this machine. I procrastinated a bit because of the price. But... Finally caved in & bought it for an upcoming party for the Mayweather fight. I was skeptical & told him if it doesn't work its going back! Well...needless to say, I'm now buying accessories to protect it. I love it! Worth every single penny. You just need patience to slowly go back & forth...its something you can zip thru on the first time. Again, well worth it.

Well worth it!

By Jamdam from Seattle, WA, USA on 04/06/2015

I was hoping to be pleased with this purchase, ended up thrilled and amazed! With 4 dogs, 2 cats, a hapless husband and light grey carpet, I thought getting it clean would be hopeless. This machine did such a good job on my 15 year old carpet, I'm not kidding when I say, it looks almost brand new. The Big Green so much easier to use and clean afterwards. The attachment is very easy to connect and handle. With the bigger tank capacity and wider brush, it cuts down on the time too. The best part? It leaves the carpet almost dry! I'm beyond happy!

5 Dogs

By Edie from Iowa on 02/18/2015

Don't look any further if you have dogs in house. If you are comparing this with other machines save your time and get this one. Hands down the best commercial cleaner I've ever used and well worth the money. I live on a 10 acre acreage and spend a lot of time outdoors. And so do my dogs. (4 over 90 pounds and a pug so lots of dog) Needless to say my carpets take a beating. The Big Green is so easy to maneuver around, it seems to just glide over floors. The tanks hold enough cleaning solution that I'm not constantly stopping to empty and refill. I have about 1500 square feet of carpet and it makes the job so much easier and faster. I vacuum every other day for the most part and am just amazed at the hair I pull up when cleaning carpets with this machine. It's so easy to quickly pull the hair out and continue on. It also leaves carpet almost dry! I cannot believe how it pulls out the excess water. My sister in law renovates houses and owns the commercial Rug Doctor. Told her to try it and she was amazed as well. She also commented on how easily you can move it around. Seems so well made and solid. I also think the money and effort Bissell gives to help pets is so nice. Makes me even happier with my purchase!

Great Cleaner

By CarpetCleaner53 from Mentor, OH, USA on 01/20/2015

I have rented this machine a few times before and was always impressed with the results. We have two medium-large dogs and although we clean their muddy wet feet before they enter the house, they still track in residual dirt. This, the occasional accident coupled with lounging require the carpets be cleaned as often as necessary especially the traffic areas. This machine is well-built and handles the job extremely well.

great product

By LET IT BE KNOWN from Pennsylvania, USA on 01/20/2015

I LOVE BISSELL. MY OLD BISSEL JUST WENT ON ME AND I'VE HAD IT FOR 10 YEARS+. WE JUST RENTED THIS MODEL FROM WEIS AND MY HUSBAND ACTUALLY USED IT AND LOVED IT. I LIKE THAT IT HAS THE 2 WATER BUCKETS INSTEAD OF THE BAG INSIDE OF THE BUCKET. IT MAKES FOR EASIER CLEANING AND THE RESULTS ARE GREAT. IT DRIES THE CARPETS BETTER THAN THE OTHER MODEL TOO. I THINK IT'S A LITTLE PRICEY, BUT IT HAS GREAT RESULTS!

A Dream Machine

By Secrent from Eugene, OR, USA on 12/25/2014

This is the machine I have been waiting for Bissell to come out with for 20+ years. Hats off to the Design & Engineering Dept. for this excellent hard working carpet cleaner! I have been using a Bissell Big Green canister deep cleaner 1671 for over 20 yrs. and have been more than happy with it, but it does require putting some labor effort into it. Having had back surgery this year, I knew it was time to step up. I used my 86T3 for the first time and fell in love with it. Everything is designed well and with common sense! Very easy to use and cleanup with the collection containers is a breeze. Best part is how extremely well it cleans the carpet. The rotating brush and "strong" vacuum suction really works all the dirt free from the carpet effortlessly. I am really pleased that Bissell didn't not skimp on the vacuum power, it is powerful and suprisingly quiet. The attachment hose is another great bonus, it is plently long and is just what is needed to clean the areas you can't get the machine into, stairways especially. This is one heck of a carpet cleaner, and I can easily say it does as good job if not better, than any job a come to your house "professional cleaner" does.

Where have you been all my life?

By Gerard from Clinton, MA, USA on 12/21/2014

As a professional Carpet Cleaner, I have owned many machine's in all shapes and sizes, when I stumbled onto Bissell looking for Machines I could recommend to my clients to use in between regular cleanings, I had tried other makers and found them lacking.... The ease of use, the ease of care, the performance, the cleaning products, and the accessories, makes the big green deep cleaning machine a machine I can recommend to my clients without any reservations!! Online ordering is smooth, the delivery, flawless, and right out of the shipping container, you are ready to clean and maintain a healthy home of carpets ans upholstery.... 2 very enthusiastic thumbs way up!!!

Thank You Big Green!

By jglockle2014 from Greensboro, NC on 12/18/2014

I have three indoor dogs; Carpet appeared ruined and needing to be replaced. I was ashamed for anyone to come over... Holy smokes! I wish I could post my before and after pictures!!! This machine is amazing and worth every dime. Family members have seen my before and after pics and are paying to have their carpet done with mine... This machine is, and will, pay for itself! It left my carpet smelling amazing, fluffy, and soft!

Better Than "Professional" Cleaning

By Picky Customer from Kansas City, MO, USA on 12/14/2014

I have owned several carpet cleaners, none of which were impressive, but were better than nothing. I decided to treat myself with a professional cleaning, and it was so inadequate, I ended up replacing my carpet, even after they came back once to redo it. Took the plunge and spent a little more on this machine, but still less than the professional cleaning cost. My new carpets are two years old, and still look new. The slime that came out of them was amazing. It was like muddy water! I am impressed - and I don't impress easily. It is heavier than some, but easy to use, and rolls up the stairs backwards with ease. Love it!!

Great cleaning machine

By Mike from Massachusetts, USA on 12/03/2014

Having used many less expensive machines over the coarse of 20 years I decided to invest more money for a better heavy duty cleaning machine. One new puppy I need a carpet cleaner. I have 3,000 square feet of carpet all of which has been cleaned by me many times with the old machines. Got the Big Green in Nov. 2014 and I love it. My carpets I thought appeared to be clean. I ran this big boy and was amazed how it cleaned. Very noticeable. The only drawback this is a big machine and heavy but you get a good workout. It also leaves the carpet very dry. Completely dry in less than 24 hrs. Get it ! Mike

Excellent Machine

By jt from Kennewick, WA, USA on 12/03/2014

I was sorta skeptical of how well this would work on some of the stains in my carpet. With a little pre treatment, this worked like a champ!! I was impressed with how much water it pulled back out of the carpet. It didn't take long for it to dry. This machine exceeded my expectations.

Big Green is best ever.

By LA50 from Celina, OH on 11/29/2014

I had been waiting for quite a while to purchase a Big Green Cleaning Machine. Finally, time came when I needed to clean carpets. What a wonderful experience. Our pamperd puppy had ventured down to our basement family room and had an accident. After a couple of weeks waiting I finally cleaned stained area, WOW!!! Stains came out and carpet looks brand new. I then took cleaner to my sons new home where previous owner had put an area rug under kitchen table, which left a 'sticky residue of some sort." Big Green not only cleaned up 'shadow' but made carpet look brand new again. Can't say enough. We used the Professional Cleaner with the Boost additive. Enough said. Thanks Bissell for making such a wonderful product. I also like the fact that I can purchase repair parts when needed.

WORTH EVERY PENNY -- BEST MACHINE I'VE EVER USED

By Marines33 from Florida, USA on 11/29/2014

I have 5 active boys, a yellow lab that sheds ALOT and light beige carpets that are 10 years old. My carpets get DISGUSTING in no time and keeping them really clean requires a lot. Despite daily vacuums and renting commercial carpet cleaners I was not satisfied with the look and cleanliness of the carpet. I was frustrated and planning on replacing the carpets because I just could not find a machine to clean deep enough. I tried several brands. I found this machine researching online -- the reviews were great but I was skeptical. Then I found a bargain too good to pass up and I decided to take the risk. I just got it and couldn't wait to put it to the test. WOW is all I can say! WORTH EVERY PENNY! NO REGRETS HERE! The true test for me was that first water change -- it was like tar!! I know -- it's nasty but I knew instantly it was doing it's job well. This is what I was looking for all this time. This machine cleans better than any machine I've ever used. I finally got the clean I was looking for in my carpets. It pulled all the dog hair off the carpet -- I do mean ALL the hair and I vacuum daily with a high end vacuum. I take pride in keeping a clean house but when I saw all that machine pulled up -- I was astonished!!! My carpets look like new now. I was going to replace them but now I don't have to. I like that it has 2 buckets (one for clean water / one for dirty water) so changing out the water out is manageable for me - not too heavy. It cleans forward and back which cut my usual carpet cleaning time in half. My carpets were dry in half the time too. There is nothing I don't like about this machine. I like that it folds down so storing it is easier. All the compartments come apart for a thorough clean-up of the machine. The hand tool cleans great -- my stairs look really clean and plush. You guys thought of everything. Only wish it could clean closer to the edges but other than that -- it's does a great job. THANK YOU BISSELL for a great machine!

What a difference a carpet cleaner makes

By Pamepot from Hilton Head Island, SC, USA on 10/14/2014

I had an older Bissell which broke halfway through cleaning. I wanted to buy a cleaner and decided to look for the big Green deep. However no store sold locally. So I decided to rent a Big Green Deep. Easier to setup and use and like the convenience of the fold down handle. I returned to finish the job and decided to test the carpet I already had cleaned. Wow the water looked like I never did a thing; filthy even with grime in the water. Unfortunately I ended up redoing the whole room. I took pictures to show my sisters, before and after, they were shocked! I returned the rental and ordered mine. I used in our office and spots that my husband assured me were permanent came up. Now we are not replacing the carpeting! Renting one first was definitely a plus. It is a good workout but less time overall because of the deep cleaning process. You can even get coupons to fray the cost. I believe long run my friends will try to rent from me :)

Just had to have one

By Dave from Sierra Vista, AZ, USA on 10/06/2014

We have always rented the Rug Doctor at our local Lowe's but this time when we went in to rent one, they switched to the Bissell Big Green. I asked the girl how it worked and she said everyone that has rented them said it works better then the RD. We took it home and tried it and before we even got it back to the store, I had to purchase one. This unit is so easy to use and does such a great job that I just had to own one. It will now be much easier to keep up with our two Great Danes and the carpets look like new!!

WOW!

By George from Apple Valley, CA, USA on 09/14/2014

Wow, Amazing, I can't believe it. Those are the words my wife and I used after purchasing and using the "Big Green". We own a 13 year old Bissell Pro-Heat 1699 shampooer, but there is no comparison between that and the Big Green Cleaning Machine. We clean our carpets regularly, and take our shoes off when walking on the carpet, but we still had ugly permanent black stains. We used spot removers before shampooing with our Bissell Pro-Heat. The black stains just wouldn't come out. Our house is only 8 years old, and has a light colored carpet. After just one use of the Big Green, the black stains were completely gone. (And I thought about the replacing the carpet, or see if a professional could get the spots out). Wow, I can't believe it!

Best Carpet Cleaning Machine For The Money

By oldzoom from Fort Worth, Texas on 09/01/2014

I've owned many carpet cleaning machines through the years and the Bissell Big Green Clean Machine is by far the best one. I've owned mine for 3+ years now and it's works just as good as the day I bought it. It's simple and easy to use and holds lots of water/solution to get a big job done. I have 3 dogs and accidents do happen. The BBGCM sets up fast for use and cleans up fairly easy after the job is done. The handle folds over reducing the size of the machine so it takes up less storage space. I've never been happier with a carpet cleaning machine purchase as I have been with the BBGCM. I've loaned it to several friends with pets and then they purchased their own BBGCM and love it too. The BBGCM cleans better than the Rug Doctor rentals. You will save alot of money over the years by owning the BBGCM instead of using rentals. If your an animal owner or have messy kids, this is a MUST HAVE item in your household! Check out all the available attachments for the BBGCM, they work wonders for carpet edge cleaning, auto seat/carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning. I own them all and highly recommend them for the complete cleaning package. If you're on the fence about purchasing the BBGCM, Bissell stands behind their products and mine is 3+ years old and works great. It's simple solid construction will last many years longer than the competitors...

wow?

By Mick1034 from Papillion, NE, USA on 08/19/2014

Received the cleaner and tried to use it, Not. We received ok to take it to a repair shop, had it one day on the way to be repaired. We received a call that it was repaired, this was done in a timely manner, thanks. When we picked it up they told us what a great machine this is, OK. Upon arriving at home it was time to try again or not. Cleaner worked great, but the attachment with the gears to drive the brush did not. Placed a call to the factory new one on the way, GREAT. I would like to close by saying what a great machine this is!! I do mean it.

Fantastic and I'll tell you why...

By rocketman from baton rouge, la on 08/08/2014

I used to rent the Rug Doctor from the local supermarket once/year. It became a hassle trying to do 2 living rooms and 3 bedrooms in one 24 hour period before the rental expired. I got old. Now I just want to do my rugs and carpets when IWANT to at MY schedule. This is better than rug doctor. It is equally as well built (sturdy, no toy), but it cleans and sucks out the water better than RDoctor. I wanted to use it quickly to make sure it operated correctly but I didn't yet have any shampoo. So all I used was hot tap water for one bedroom, just to make sure the darn thing worked. It sure did. It took out entire stains with just hot water and the dirty water from that one bedroom (cleaned WITHOUT the benefit of a shampoo ingredient-Just hot water) was black. After I got shampoo I did it again, of course, and got even more dirt out. Love this thing.

Just WOW!

By Over 40 from Chicago, IL, USA on 08/07/2014

I shampooed my home with my 12 year old Hoover brush cleaner a week ago. Not fully satisfied I decided to bite the bullet and spend the money on this one. Cream carpet etc upstairs first. Sure it was good it seemed but I still wasn't sure. Then....the stairs with cream carpet. I upgraded the attachment that hasn't come in yet so used the one that came with it. Mind you, I'm NEVER impressed with stair attachments. WOW The 10 year old carpet looks almost new. The suction? WOW So then came the real test. My family room. 3 large dogs and newer chocolate carpet that I can see the walking dirt path. Will it pick up anymore dirt? I mean it has only been a week right? Like sludge. EWWW It really should have been done again but will wait until the weekend. Sometimes we just feel like a purchase was really worth it. Doesn't happen often but this really was one of them. I won't lie though, I am a very fit 40 something female and it is a bit of a workout. Its a heavier unit and if it were a lawnmower I'd say make it self propelled. It's love...I wish Bissell made tile cleaners and vacuums this awesome. Oh, I did vacuum with my Dyson dog cleaner. Totally missed a ton of hair. The smell of the shampoo got lots of bad reviews. I am scent sensitive and while too strong from the bottle, it isn't bad and goes away once dry. Thumbs up on this cleaner!

Love this machine

By Sandy from Marietta, GA, USA on 07/19/2014

Worked wonders on my carpet that truly needs to be replaced. The burbur carpet is over 15yrs old and has endured many pets and their issues. This machine has done just as well as the professionals. The stains came back after drying of course so it's not a miracle worker and nor is it to be expected for such old stains. It's very user friendly, the hot tap water stays hot so I didnt notice nor miss the heater that my old machine had. This one is well worth the extra money compared to all the others. I would definitively recommend it, especially if it has the longevity of my old one that died after 17yrs.

Worked Better Than I Imagined

By Marie57 from Cincinnati, OH, USA on 06/17/2014

First: The Bad News -- I never realized just how filthy my carpets were. Now: The Good News -- When the massive box this came in arrived through UPS, I DREADED opening it and the prospect of beginning the laborious process of assembling the cleaner and reading the directions. I needn't have worried. Well-packaged, the cleaner was out of the box and ready to go in less than 5 minutes. NO assembly to speak of and easy to understand directions - there is nothing complicated here folks. But the real test was cleaning the carpet After the first swipe, I had to run and get a camera to show the noticeable difference. Our dining room carpet is OLD and while we have a GREAT vacuum cleaner & had used our old carpet steam cleaner, I couldn't have been more surprised at the results of the Bissell. I like the scent of the cleaner and the two separate tanks means you're not washing your carpet with dirty water. The tanks snap on easily and take the guesswork out of "Is it sealed?". (Unlike my old machine that I would have to fire up to see if it was sucking up the cleaner.) The next test was drying time and would the carpet look better when it was dry. The carpet was dry in just a few hours and looked amazingly good. We have several cats and I immediately noticed a difference in the way the carpet felt on my bare feet as well as the air quality in the room. I am so glad that I purchased this machine and have been telling everyone in my family about how pleased I am. This is the real deal and if you want your own professional style cleaner to have at your disposal, I highly recommend this one. THANK YOU for a GREAT product!

Sweet Machine

By Biss48 from Ohio on 06/05/2014

I have rented several machines and I always go back to this one.This is hands-down the best machine for the money out there. These machines have never let me down,other ones have, so I bought one because I got tired of having to clean it before I used it when I rented it but that's not Bissells fault. This machine is very easy to run and maintain.

fantastic

By rett from West Virginia, USA on 04/28/2014

I rented one and my next big purchase will be to buy this machine, I want one of my own (no one else's dirt) plus I think it needed service since I noticed tiny oil or grease spots once in a while. I am trying to wait until next year for new carpet or was going to do the carpeted room in hardwood due to the cleaning issue. Next year I will recarpet because this machine was so easy to use and effective.

Machine does everything they claim and more.

By Larry57 from Davison, mi on 04/18/2014

Today was the first day I used my new machine. They is no assembly required. The carpet came out exceptionally clean. The most amazing was how quick my carpet was dry. Much to my amazement the carpet was dry in just over five hours. I used to own a carpet cleaning company and the results match any of the commercial equipment I used to own. Sine the machine is brand new I can make no statement how long it will last before something breaks. The water pressure and suction were definitely up to commercial standards. Great product well worth the price.

Motor on brush stopped working 2nd time used.

By jj from Spokane, MO, USA on 04/07/2014

For no reason at all the motor for the brush stopped working. I live by 2 large towns but they have the repair stations in small towns in the middle of nowhere!!? Now I will have to earn my warranty with a 180 mile drive.

Worth every penny!!!

By Nisa from San Antonio, TX on 04/05/2014

Bought this and exceeding my expectations! No complaints at all! Easy to use, easy to clean, and this thing really works! I have used The Rug Doctor in the past, but this one is better! I thought that the solution was pricey at first, but it's very concentrated, so it goes a long way....soooo happy with my purchase!

Absolutely the best!

By Joey fox from Amarillo, Tx on 03/28/2014

I have been using the smaller bissell carpet cleaner for years and it has done a great job. But then I ended up with 4 dogs and 2 of them shed and had to be potty trained. My mom ordered this carpet cleaner for me as a gift and I have to say it was the best investment that she could have made. It did such an amazing job that I took before and after pictures and had to show the rest of my family. I never write reviews but I felt this machine deserved one for sure. I would recommend it to anyone.

Worth the price!

By Noel82 from GA on 03/16/2014

I call my Big Green "The Annihilator." There is literally no stain that this machine can't erase from existence. I recently cleaned a house with decades old carpet stains and by the end of the day the Big Green made it look brand spanking new. As of March 2014, I've been using it weekly for a year and there have been no hitches at all. Just make sure to clean the brushes every now and then! The only real caveat is the price, but I can tell you that it is 100% worth it. I've probably saved thousands by not having to replace my carpets!

Great when it works

By Bud from Kansas from Undisclosed on 02/24/2014

I purchased my big green machine in 06/12 and it has been working okay until today when I went to clean my rug and no cleaning fluid would come out. I called Bissell and they ran me through some lame tests and determined it was broken! Duh! Now comes the problem, the closest Bissell service center to me is 90 miles away. Great, now I am on my hands and knees cleaning up the dog puke from my rug. I live close to Topeka, KS, which is a good size town and they don't have a service center there. They have one in the small town of Manhattan, KS 90 miles from my house. What good is a 5 year warranty when you have to drive 180 miles to have it repaired. I will never buy another Bissell product again and neither should you. Buyer beware.

Big Green

By gregkap from St. Louis, MO, USA on 02/12/2014

Used the Big Green one time to clean a 21x21 ft room. Took me a few hours to clean but it did a great job. Would not believe the dirt it picked up even after a professional cleaned it 6 months earlier. This machine is not hard to use and is sure easier on my backthan the older Bissell steam cleaner I used to have. Would strongly recommend this machine to anyone.

Love My Big Green

By Marine Mom 23 from Reisterstown, MD, USA on 02/10/2014

WOW what a machine this is. I just love it. This is a Birthday present for myself I order this yesterday 1/23/2014 and It arrived today 1/24/14 and free shipping Can't beat this deal. As soon as the machine was unpacked I was cleaning my carpets I cannot believe how great they look. I have 130lb Rottie that brings in a lot of dirt on his feet even after I try to wipe them off. This machine is by far the best I have ever used. It will give you a work out but it was well worth it .Im telling you they look brand new I have never written a review before, but couldn't wait to give this 5 stars. Usually I have buyers remorse after spending this much money on something but not this time I'm just so happy with it. Easy to use love the forward and back motion for cleaning and sucking up the dirty water..Carpets were dry in no time Water stayed hot the whole time Hope this helps if you are on the fence about purchasing this great carpet cleaner

Bissell, you've hit a grand slam home run!

By SataiTuck from Cuyahoga Falls, OH, USA on 02/08/2014

Rented one for the first time last year to clean my grandparent's carpets. They had a very high traffic area, and lots of spots. The Big Green cleaned it all up. Their carpets look beautiful and clean. I also cleaned my cousin's carpets and got the same results. For the third time, I rented one to do a classroom at my cousin's school and my living room. Every time, the water was so disgusting. I was so happy to see that though, since those are the results you should get if your carpets haven't been cleaned in a long time. Bissell, I want to thank you so much for this incredible machine. When I have enough money, I'm definitely going to buy one! Keep up the great work!

Fantastic Machine

By Jim from Undisclosed on 02/03/2014

I bought the Bissell Big Green Cleaning Machine in December of 2013 after considerable research. I prefer to buy once and cry once. Bissell surely named this machine correctly. It does a fantastic job of deep cleaning. I have hired professionals to clean our carpets as well as using other machines available for rent. The Bissell product it better than them all. I was afraid I was going to have to replace our 12 year old carpet, but we will enjoy them for years to come after buying the Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine. Thanks for a great product.

The Doctor is out

By Anothersatisfiedcustomer from Waynesboro, VA, USA on 02/02/2014

Rented this product based on research and reviews from this sight. Will never use another. It's quite refreshing to use a product that not only lives up to my expectations, but blows them away! I will definitely be buying this machine. We have two adults, two toddlers, two dogs and two cats. While I have done my best with a smaller steam cleaner and regular vacuuming, I was amazed at the stains the BigGreen removed. Bissell just saved us about three to five thousand dollars. Thank you. This is a well built and quality machine, and saying it does a good job is like saying water is wet.

Big Green Machine Shines

By ChezJfrey from Tigard, OR on 01/27/2014

Have animals and kids and looks more cost-effective to buy a machine, rather than continually hire out or rent. I just received it and have cleaned two rooms so far. Fantastic results...carpet looks new and as if a professional did the job. I am impressed and glad I made the purchase. Go slow, add a no-solution rinse pass and follow with a dry pass to pick up remaining moisture and not leave dirt-catching residue.

Great machine backed up by great customer service

By Wineguy66 from HH, NY on 01/18/2014

My first experience with Bissell products and customer service began a few years ago with the purchase of the ProHeat Deep Cleaning System 25A3. About nine months into my purchase the machine stopped drawing clean water from the tank, I called customer care and after trying several things it was determined that I needed a replacement water tank so they sent me one no charge. The replacement water tank worked for several months but then it suffered from the same issue as the original tank but unfortunately the warranty period had expired at this point and I didnt want to put any more time and money into this machine. I was determined to find another carpet cleaner (not another Bissell product of course), so I spent many weeks researching products and found that my end result kept pointing me back to Bissell and their Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine (Deep Cleaner 86T3). Now I was very hesitant at purchasing another Bissell product after my first experience and was even more hesitant about spending four times the money as well, but after reading all the reviews and counting on the fact that it came with a five year warranty I was confident that this was the right purchase. I purchased the Big Green and used it probably six times over the past year without issue, and it worked great every time until after this past Christmas. I started cleaning with it as usual and within five minutes clean soapy water started pouring out from around the flow indicator (spinning black & white wheel). I reseated the tanks several times but the flow indicator continued spinning all on its own with water pouring from it and without me using the spray trigger. Needless to say I was very upset at this point having experienced yet another issue with a Bissell product, and a very expensive one at that. The first thing I did was send customer care an email about my issue and then started trolling through the Bissell website for answers to my problem and I assumed that they would advise me to take it to my local service center which unfortunately is 80 miles away. While waiting for a response from my email I took the liberty of calling my Bissell authorized local service center and was disappointed to hear the gentleman tell me that they "dont like to service Bissell products under warranty" and that "Bissell products are not built very well" but I could drop it off and they would get back to me in a few months. At this point I was beginning to regret my purchase of the Big Green in a BIG way, until I checked my email the following day. I was absolutely ecstatic to hear back from Nick at Bissell customer care who told me to take a photo of the serial number sticker on my machine and another photo of the cut the cord and send the photos to him then he would send me a new machine. Within one week my new Big Green arrived and runs great, all my carpets are perfectly clean once again and Bissell customer care has completely renewed my faith in Bissell products and customer service. This has been the best customer service experience I have ever had with any product purchase, I give Bissell Customer Care service ten stars. Thanks again Nick, you are the man.

Best Carpet Cleaner I Have Ever Used

By Frank1023 from California, USA on 01/11/2014

I have used a lot of different carpet cleaners and this is hands down the best. I was worried about spending so much on it but once I used it I realized it was well worth the money. Don't waste your money on other machines. The Big Green Machine is well built and works great. It did a better job than calling a company to clean my carpets. I would highly recommend the Big Green Machine.

Amazing Deep Cleaner Machine

By Gottaluvuk from Ky on 01/09/2014

AMAZING, SIMPLY AMAZING, not kidding, it really is! It got stains out I never thought would ever come out. I have tried other deep cleaning machines and they were still there, This machine takes them up with ease and the carpet dries SO fast! I LOVE THIS DEEP CLEANING MACHINE!!!! I am really glad I made the purchase, it was well worth the extra expense over the cheaper machines. You won't regret this purchase! I promise! The only issue I would have is the hose attachment does not have much suction. I expected it to work much better than it does however that is what the little green is for anyway.

A workout but well worth it!

By rbwoodlawn from Vero Beach, FL, USA on 01/09/2014

I anxiously awaiting delivery and started right after it arrived. Since there is no assembly required it was easy. But...I never gave a thought to the weight of the machine. I had just shampooed, then rinsed the carpets using a Kirby shampooer and Hoover carpet cleaner but what this machine dug out amazed me!!! I thought the carpets were clean and found there was a lot left. To the point that the sucked up water actually was somewhat thick. I spent two days doing the carpets as I had to take a break. Like I said, this is NOT a lightweight unit and I have some leg and back issues but I'm not sorry in getting this. What I am sorry about is that all the neighbors are banging on my door wanting to use it. Last I seen, it was two doors down on the other side of the steet!

BEST Thing I ever bought

By a full house from Iowa, USA on 01/08/2014

With a toddler and pets we are constantly cleaning our carpets. Seems the smaller cleaners purchased at stores died after about a year or so. We rented a Green Machine and decided it worked so well, we bought our own. I add a small amount of hydrogen Peroxide to the cleaning solution for a better clean. Well worth your money. If you want to try it out first you can rent them at Lowe's

Love It!!!

By Patricia from Seattle, WA, USA on 01/02/2014

I absolutely love this machine. I have tried many different carpet cleaning machines over the years and purchased this one as a last chance to find one that actually works. I am so happy I decided to give it a try. I have a small zoo and they make messes, have accidents and get sick from time to time. My house is mostly carpeted so there's no way the carpet is going to be saved from these occasional mishaps. As stated I have tried a ton of carpet cleaners over the years and none of them have come close to getting my carpet as clean as the Big Green did. This carpet cleaner left my carpets almost virtually dry and cleaner than professional cleaners have. It took me some time to clean several rooms but it was well worth it. The water tank holds plenty of water so you aren't constantly stopping and refilling it. The hot tap water truly stays hot even though this cleaner doesn't heat the water. I went over the same areas several times because I have so many old stains I've never been able to get out. Although I was unable to get 100% of the stains out it is no fault of the Big Green it's simply because they had been there for many years despite professional cleaning and all the products I tried on them. That being said my carpet looks fantastic considering what I started with. Wish I had had this machine a long time ago. It is heavy and not the easiest to get up and down the stairs but at 60 plus I was able to manage it without a lot of trouble. I noticed several reviews said it was noisy. I didn't find it to be unusually loud considering how powerful it is. Bottom line it's pricey but worth it and I would recommend this machine to anyone without reservation. Now if I can find a small portable that works just as good for cleaning up mishaps when they happen I'll be set.

Couldn't Believe It!

By Ronbo from Menifee, CA, USA on 01/01/2014

Ordered on Thursday, it was on my doorstep Friday. A little leary because I live in a double wide manufactured home. (particle sub-floor does not do well with moisture). I am honestly impressed. It arrived at 1:30. My carpets were clean and dry by 6:00! Very impressed that the vacuum picked up so much water. Now two weeks later, my floors did not buckle. And my carpet is new! If you are on the fence about this, don't be. I consider this one of the best investments I have ever made... Very Happy!

Better than professional

By Olivia from McLean, VA 22101, USA on 01/01/2014

Having 2 dogs I have my carpets cleaned a few times a year. However, the carpet was getting older and it never seemed to be clean enough. I bought the Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine to remove pet stains. What a shock to see how much cleaner I could get the carpet than the professional carpet cleaners I was paying. I did have to work over traffic areas a few times but the carpet now seem to be the original color and I am thrilled. From now on I will do my own carpet cleaning and will save money and do it when it is convenient for me. All in all a great machine.

Excited & Scared...

By ashr705 from Fort Wayne, IN, USA on 12/31/2013

I did a lot of searching and reviewing before I bought a carpet cleaner. After I made my purchase of the Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine I was super excited and couldn't wait for it to be delivered...but I was also scared. What if it wasn't as good as what was said/shown? What if I hated it after purchase? Big Green was delivered and I used it and was more than satisfied! I have NEVER used such a great carpet! I love everything about it (except the cord wrapping)! It has great power and cleaning the stain the I tried to get up by hand! It is amazing and recommend it to everyone!

My cream carpet is clean again

By Hanslor from Buffalo, NY, USA on 12/25/2013

This machine cleaned almost as I thought it would and as others stated. My carpet was DIRTY, I haven't cleaned it in about 7-9 years, I was ready to get new carpet but decided to give the Big Green a try. I pretreated the entrance to my dinning room and give it a try. I was like WoW this machine cleaned made the carpet look almost new. After that I went on and cleaned the rest of the carpet. The Big Green really cleans BUT ..... in my cream carpet it left lines. The distance between the lines are about the distance of almost the tires. I tried to go back over the lines but they kept showing up, and when the carpet dried they are still there. But my carpet is now clean and no longer do I feel like I'll need to get new carpet.

Fast and super clean

By Cat lower from NC on 12/25/2013

Advantage: 1. Easy to fill water. 2. Easy to push 3. Deep cleaning. Next day dirt doesn't come back to surface. 4. Carpet dry in 15 minutes. Disadvantage: 1. Push easy but pull back is heavy 2. Machine is high. Does not go under coffee table, end table or little close to edge of carpet. 3. It is too big. To store you need extra space

LOVE this machine.

By bkennedy from Slater, MO on 12/24/2013

I have owned several shampooers over the last 18 years and this one is, by far, the BEST one I have ever purchased. Albeit, it was more expensive than all the others, but wow is it worth the price. I am so glad I decided to get it because a house full of puppies, it has already paid for itself. So easy to use and the tank size allows me to do A LOT more cleaning without stopping to refill. I can't say enough good things about this machine. I love it.

What are you waiting for???

By Game Day from Tulsa, OK on 12/22/2013

All I can say is WOW!! The reviews are true. This machine does an AWESOME job making my almost white carpet look new again. It got out stains and traffic marks that I was sure wouldn't ever come clean. I wish I hadn't felt the need to think about the investment for as a long as I did. There is some initial investment but after it gets used a second time I'll have recouped the money when compared to the cost of hiring a "professional". I was sure I would have to replace my carpeting but the Big Green machine delivered and I can keep what "green" I have in the bank instead of shelling it out for new carpet. What are you waiting for???? It's worth every penny!!!!

From a part time house husband

By Art from Red Bluff, CA 96080, USA on 12/13/2013

I did the research and decided to go with this machine. I'm recently retired and my wife is not, so I anxiously awaited the Big Green's arrival from Bissell and so I got to test drive the machine first. I was not disappointed in the least. In fact I'm thrilled and I tell my wife constantly how happy I am we purchased this machine. I also tell her I'm pretty proud of how well the carpets turned out, how they look so clean. I think she's proud of me too. I've also used the attachments and was equally excited to see how easy they were to use as well as what a nice job they did. Among my endeavors, I suppose I'm at least a part time house husband, and I take pride with having a clean house and clean carpets. This may sound a little strange, but I look forward to using the machine in the future when it's time to clean the carpets again. Way to go Bissell.

work horse

By Jardog from Dallas, GA, USA on 12/10/2013

I read the manual. It appears to have covered most any question that ran through my mind. Gave a few insights that helped calm me when I saw balls of carpet coming up from the floor. Glad this was a normal occurrence. It took out all my pet stains. Just as a test I used plain water and the pet urine marks went away. It is a heavy machine and I expect a very long life of this unit. No buyers remorse here.

Much better than expected

By Dmjolley from Waco, TX on 12/06/2013

I decided to purchase the Big Green machine based on reviews and customer support replies for every less than perfect rating. I have a family of 7 plus 3 dogs, and 8 year old carpet. Due to the outstanding cleaning performance, my carpet looks much younger. I get my carpet professionally cleaned every quarter, but it has not looked any better than it does now. I am impressed.

Best product I've ever purchased!

By SGM from Indianapolis, IN, USA on 11/23/2013

Before buying, I first rented the Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine. The cleaning results, reduced drying time, and ease of use/effort required convinced me to purchase this Bissell. In the past I've rented the Rug Doctor machine and there is no comparison - Bissell is a far superior product.

Just superb

By lvplayer from Las Vegas, NV on 11/13/2013

I originally purchased a Rug Doctor and I cleaned about 3 feet of my carpeting and it broke. I returned it and got a refund and then did some research. The Big Green came up consistently as the best on the market. I purchased my Big Green and it worked beautifully, cleaning my off-white carpet with ease. I was pleasantly surprised with how well it cleaned. It's very easy to use and the forward and backward motion really gets the carpet clean and there's very little water left in the carpet. It was barely damp to the touch. I would recommend this machine to everyone. It was well worth the price.

Can't go wrong, this is the best cleaning machine ever!!

By brand new grandma from Cedar Rapids, IA, USA on 11/10/2013

I have used several carpet shampooers and this one is the best. I have 3 dogs and 2 grand babies that have just started walking, so there are a lot of messes on my carpet. After cleaning the carpets, it only takes a couple of hours to dry instead of almost a day to dry. It also works great in cleaning the car. My husband was a smoker and made a mess out of our car. Well the car looks brand new again inside. Thanks to my cleaning machine. It is easy to fill and empty and the easiest to clean. Try it, you will love it!!!

Great

By vicki65 from Garden Valley, CA 95633, USA on 11/09/2013

This is probably one of the best investments we have ever made. We have off white wall to wall carpeting in our house and this did a wonderful job. In the past we have hired carpet cleaning companies and the Big Green Machine did a much better job. We even used it to clean our carpets in our motorhome. Fantastic job.

Great clean but a short cord

By artdiva from kentucky on 10/29/2013

cleans wonderfully, very pleased but the power cord is shorter than it should be. I could not clean without multiple replugging. A longer cord would greatly increase the ease of use.

An excellent machine

By Begonia from Sun Prairie, WI on 10/23/2013

Worked very well on a variety of carpets. Using the stain removing spray is a must. Really impressed with the stair cleaning attachment. Very easy to handle and move around. I would highly recommend this machine.

The Amazing Big Green Machine

By Minidox3 from Michigan, USA on 10/23/2013

This machine is the best carpet cleaner I have owned. I have always used Bissell products but this one tops the list. It is a little more costly but I believe it will be worth the extra because I will not have to clean as often and it seems to be a well crafted cleaner. I had steam cleaned my carpets just a month ago and after using this one I can tell it is doing a much better job. I have 6 dogs and a husband so the carpet gets very dirty and stained. Two of the dogs are in their senior years so you all know what happens often; this machine even gets out those stains. It is a little more awkward than my previous machines but you figure out how to maneuver it pretty quickly. It comes apart and cleans up easily. The handle folds down for ease in storage. Go ahead, try it! You will like it!

Fantastic - first carpet cleaner ever bought

By snoopy from Undisclosed on 10/14/2013

This is great. The carpets look brand new, and I don't remember when I bought them. The dog hair this picked up and I do try to vacuum at least weekly. The clear colored solution and water tanks is great to monitor water and solution levels besides the flow gauge. . The convenience of having a machine that freely moves backwards and forwards, especially in smaller rooms. It pays to do your homework before making a purchase of a carpet cleaner. I am glad I found this product. Other customers reviews helped me make my decision also.

I love this machine!

By TinaJo from Greenwood, IN, USA on 10/02/2013

We have two big dogs. One is an old girl that can be kind of "leaky". Nuf said! I am so glad I decided to buy this carpet cleaner. I will never pay for carpet cleaning again. This does just as well as a professional carpet cleaner. What I really like is that you can go over the areas that you know are likely really dirty more than once. Also, if you go over the carpet after your done and not put down any cleaning solution and just vacuum, your carpets are nearly dry when you're done! An added benefit is that I can pick what I choose to clean the carpet with. I'm very conscious of the cleaning ingredients that I use and stay away from toxic, chemical-laden cleaners. I have cleaned our bedroom and living room with this machine and am so pleased with the results. My husband was a disbeliever when I purchased this, but not anymore after seeing how well it cleaned the living room carpet.

Big Green does a fabulous job but ...

By Purlgirl from Philadelphia, PA, USA on 10/01/2013

if you do several rinses with only very hot water (let the carpet dry for about 24 hours between each rinse) you will still extract a lot of soapy water and dirt. After about three rinses, my rugs felt softer and looked great. It takes a lot of time but it's worth it if you care how your carpets look and feel.

Great machine

By Jen99 from Denver, CO on 09/30/2013

This product has exceeded my expectations. I just spent 2 days cleaning my father's home (he's 93). It did an amazing job on neglected carpet. The design is excellent - it's easy to use, put together extremely well. It folds up into a perfect size for transporting and storage. It's pretty easy to clean after use, and best of all, it works like a dream! So much easier to use than the hose types - and it cleans very well - even without extra spot cleaners and scrubbing. Good job, Bissell! This product has paid for itself in the first few weeks of ownership. I am very impressed with it.

Excellent Carpet Cleaner

By Man cleaner from Santa Ana, CA, USA on 09/28/2013

I bought the Big Green Machine after doing much research and looking at machines in retail stores. It has the features I am looking forward and is easy to use. Without going into every technical feature let me just say that assembly is 1-2-3 and mixing the solution is very simple and so is the operation of the unit. I followed the directions for cleaning which are easy to understand and the results are amazing in every way. Just empty the dirty water container and you keep on cleaning. Stairs take more work but the results are equally outstanding. I have a multi-story home and I am able to maneuver the big green machine up and down stairs with no problem. I'll close by saying that as long as I am able to clean my own carpets with this machine I will never use a professional carpet cleaning service again. Sure it takes work and patience but if you want clean carpets and stairs and you don't mind the price tag then this is the machine for you.

OMG!!

By Tunesia from Texas on 09/21/2013

So before I rented this machine I took my carpet to be at least fairly clean.... and then I used this machine. I did not realize how dirty my carpet was. It picked up dirt that you could see and apparently dirt you couldnt see. This machine outcleans any other machine I have used and it's affordable and easy to use. I plan to use it at least every 30-60 days. Thanks Bissell!!!

Big Green Deep cleaner

By Sam from Scottsdale on 09/21/2013

Excellent machine. My carpets are older & had several pet stains from an aging dog. My other cleaner only did a superficial fix and they resurfaced in no time at all. I used the Big Green & it really did the trick. My carpets look almost new. Even though I vacumed them x2 with a new bag for the best suction, the Big Green pulled out even more dirt, hairs, and grit. It was amasing. Not only that, but it is easy to use. I would recommend this to everyone.

I've been using another brand of carpet cleaner for years. I wish I had had this machine. I've used my new Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine multiple times just getting the old dirt that was missed by the other machine all those years. I'm confident it will take less effort on my part to keep it clean in the future. Recommend it.

Outstanding find

By gearyt from Henderson, NV, USA on 09/10/2013

Searched the internet to replace the 2nd other brand carpet cleaner I have gone thru in the last 5 years. Looking for something better built, I found the reviews on the Big Green. Taking the plunge and purchasing it, awaited its arrival.. Couldn't be happier. Well Built. first time use was a surprise.. Wife commented on how well the carpet had come out ( 4 dogs, 1 getting on in age = many "accidents" ). Would recommend this to any pet owner !!

By Glo from Las Vegas, NV, USA on 09/10/2013

I received the machine and it looks great. However, I have not used it yet because I did not receive the cleaning supplies. Fedex said they delivered them but I did not receive them. They said they were going to contact Bissell and tell them to send them again. I was suppose to receive them at the end of August. So far, I have heard no more from Fedex nor Bissell.

Fantastic Carpet Cleaner

By LovesAmerica from Crown Point, IN on 08/26/2013

The first time I used the Big Green, I couldn't believe the difference in my carpets. I've been living in my new house for seven years with two cats and a dog, and this is the first time my carpets have been cleaned. WOW, the water was black, and the carpets looked like new. I thought I would have to go over the carpets four or five times, but one time was all that was needed. This machine is very easy to use, and with the larger water container you don't have to refill as often. My family and friends thought I had gotten new carpeting, they couldn't believe how great they looked. I would highly recommend the Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine. This is the best investment I have ever made.

Love the machine.

By mike from indiana on 08/25/2013

We have had this unit for a couple of months now. We have cleaned about 2400sq ft with great success. It has made our older carpets look new, and our newer carpets like the day they were installed. Clean, fluffy. As an engineer, I appreciate the clever design, the easy to clean vacuum path and brushes. A suggestion for a New Product - I would like to apply commercial grade carper protector (e.g. teflon) which requires a moderate pressure spray and dilution method. It would be an ideal adjunct to the big green. Mike

Fantastic results

By Teri from Indiana on 08/25/2013

Bought this after wasting money on two "spin" cleaners that played out after two years & getting, at best, mediocre results. Spend a little more money & get the big green machine. If you really want a clean carpet, this IS the machine you want. It is a bit heavier to push, but it cleans pet odors & stains like a champ. Carpets look new & smell fresh.

By Captain131 from Lakeville, Ma on 08/12/2013

Selected this product after seeing all the 5-star reviews which were right-on. I like the portability of the clean & dirty water containers without dripping water, and they are a breeze to wash out. I do a whole large room without a refill and am impressed with the amount of dirt it picks up. Also, the fold-down handle makes for easy storage in my coat closet.

By Tony from Leander, TX, USA on 08/10/2013

I started cleaning my carpets and I just kept saying wow as I would clean each room. I just wanted to do one room at first then the whole house at a later date, but couldn't stop cleaning each room. I am embarrassed to see the very dirty water as I would empty the machine, but it also left me feeling pleased with a clean carpet and home. I would highly recommend this product to anyone.

Good floor cleaner...but

By Tom from Elk Grove, CA. on 07/26/2013

This machine is good at cleaning floors and does not require so much water to clean. The removable water containers is very convenient and is the best design I've seen thus far. The upholster hookup is very well design as well. It makes cleaning the carpet and re-filling so easy. However there is something i feel that should be better designed and that is the hand attachment upholster cleaner. It is not as effective at cleaning seats and sofa. There needs to be more angle between the brush head and the hand held tube. It is so flat that my fingers touch the fabric when I am scrubbing across the seats. Give more angle so I can apply more pressure when I am scrubbing. The head is a little too big as well. Make it smaller so I man maneuver tighter spaces and angles. The brushes don't agitate which is not good. The brush section needs to cover the entire length of the brush head as well. This makes scrubbing easier. Overall, I feel the hand attachment needs to be re-design, but the machine itself is as good as it gets.

The Incredible Hulk

By R F from Upper Marlboro, MD 20774, USA on 07/23/2013

I've read the great reviews and decided to head to Lowes to rent this machine to further consider for purchasing. I must say that the reviews were spot on, this machine is like having the professional carpet cleaners living under your roof;-) The performance of the equipment was so impressive that I wasted little time to invest in my own Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine. I put my trust in Bissell for this major purchase and I am completely satisfied, My dog can do no wrong now that I have this beast at my disposal;-)

Excellent with my recommendation

By Eric from Pearland, TX, USA on 07/16/2013

The family and I have lived in the house since it was built in 2003, until today in2013. The carpets were so dirty you could see the path people walked through the house. The Big Deep Cleaning Machine removed all the dirt and stains and its looks like new again. Although it is not as easy as people make it seem, since this carpet was very soiled in some areas you had to spray and vacuum then spray and vacuum several times but it continued to clean and you ended up with a like new carpet. Also removing and replacing the chambers that contain the clean water and dirty water was so easy. Just drop them in place and they fall into the right spot. I am happy with my purchase.

AWESOME machine!

By Clean freak from Kansas on 07/15/2013

It's true what they say...."you get what you pay for". This machine is one of the BEST purchases I have ever made. Straight out of the box and ready to go. I cleaned my carpets as a trial run and was pleased at how simple it was to use. Not too heavy at all. The real test was my son's college apartment. There were stains on the carpet when he moved in, even though the carpets had just been shampooed. He added to the spills and stains. I was sure we would need to purchase an area rug just to cover up the stains. Could not believe how those carpets came to life! I made 2 passes with the big green and was amazed to see those stains disappear. I almost wanted to go door to door and offer my services haha!

By Mel from Oklahoma, USA on 07/12/2013

I have an 11 year old diabetic dog and off white carpets that came in my home in 1999. Had the carpets professionally cleaned and a week later they looked dirty. I rented a big green and cleaned my carpets myself and they look new again and they have stayed clean. I purchased my own big green and have cleaned a couple of accidents but I plan to never be without it. Works great and it easy to use!!!!!!

By afjf90 from akron, ohio on 07/01/2013

Bought this because I read all the great reviews. Used it 3 times, and it's at the nearest service center now, because the small end hose connector decided to shoot solution straight up in the air. Had my husband not mistakenly thrown away the box, it would've been shipped back. Owned it less than 3 weeks....not happy.

Dissappointed

By Brock from Denton, TX, USA on 07/01/2013

I rented this carpet cleaner, without going into detail due to censoring, it did not work. I took it back to the store and got another one. This machine worked and cleaned the carpets good but kept leaving big clumps of dirt/dust about every five feet. I don't know where it was coming from as I vacuumed right before. I would have to continuosly stop and use my vacuum to pick up the dust. I would highly reccomend renting this machin before buying it.

I bought this cleaner about a month ago--what a cleaner! I normally have professionals come to clean both the carpets and the furniture, but have been unhappy with their work the past few times. While I was hesitant to buy this cleaner due to the cost, I couldn't be happier now. The results are much more than I expected--you won't be disappointed. It is easy to use, also. Worth every penny!

What a great cleaner!

By GingerLA from Louisiana, USA on 06/08/2013

Bought this machine about a month ago. Used it on one area in my home and then went on vacation. Since I returned home I have used it in my living room and dining room and even used it on two 9x12 wool area rugs. I have to report that it was hard work but this machine works great! Dries really fast! I did put a fan on the floor and leave it for several hours before returning the furniture to the rooms. Don't use much of the cleaning liquid because it is very concentrated. And make sure you rinse the carpets after you clean them. Am sure glad I decided to buy this machine rather than renting. I can clean one room and wait until I want to clean another without being rushed to return a rental unit. I have a bad back and having to use both hands on this machine rather than pushing with only one did not hurt my back at all. I have owned two Hoover cleaners but this Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine by Bissell is far superior to either of them. I give it 5 Stars!

Overall Pleased

By Tony S from Moneta, VA, USA on 06/06/2013

Carpet cleaner cleans well. Seems well-built. A little harder to maneuver than expected, but this is the true of advantage of owning instead of renting....I can do a little at a time to give my back a break. My cleaner had cardboard and a bottle of cleaner in the clean water tank that I didn't find until after first use. Maybe it would be helpful to mention this in the operating instructions? Also the detergent ratio instructions and the cleaner bottle do not align and I'm unsure how to consider the 2X cleaner???

Outstanding machine

By OCFloridian from Florida on 05/26/2013

We purchased this machine about 3 weeks ago and have used it twice with great results. It was expensive but the quality and performance make it a must have! Every thing about this product is solid and well built. It is easy to use and easy to clean up after use. Carpets came out looking new again and almost dry! I was concerned about storage but the Big Green is compact with a folding handle that makes it easy to store. How wonderful to be able to clean carpets on you own schedule without have to go rent and haul. The machine will quickly pay for itself when you consider the cost of professional cleaning and I don't think the pros have anything on the job this machine will do.

Incredible Clean!! Cuts Cleaning time in HALF!!!

By Wasan from Cumming, IA 50061, USA on 05/03/2013

I had the Pro Heat 2X deep cleaner, but it broke down after 12 years, believe it or not. SO for that reason I decided to stay with Bissell because it has served me well. I first did my research to compare the big green with the rug doctor, i found bad reviews for the rug doctor (broken parts, cheap parts) and so decided to go with the big green. I have four young kids who know how to dirty a house. I have used my machine on almost all of my rooms of a 3500sq. ft home. I am so pleased with it. The cleaning time is literally cut in half. The machine itself is very sturdy, plastic parts are very hard and durable. The tank holds ALOT of water. The only criticism I will make, is that the when you mix the solution with the water in the tank, there isn't a third tank for just clean water, if you want to rinse afterwards. So what I've had to do is, clean the carpet with the water/solution mixture, then fill the tank a second time with water only, to give it a good rinse and pull out any solution left in the carpet. I still believe it's a fabulous machine and cuts the cleaning time in half!! Not to mention that the heater dries my carpet faster!! MY carpet was 95% dry within a few hours!! I just love it!!!!!!

My wife is impressed with the Big Green Cleaning Machine, compared with the rentals we have used in the past she said this Bissell cleans better and has alot better water/cleaner capacity so she does not have to stop and empty the machine to continue cleaning. We just bought it and this is the first time using it and I am hoping we will continue to see these results for years to come, also I loved the price, alot cheaper than buying the other rental companies machine.

This Rocks; Rug Doctor and others; move over

By Johnny B Deep Cleaning from Boise, ID, USA on 03/27/2013

This thing is so awesome. I rented one before I bought it directly from the Bissell website. I love the fact that you can go back and forward, talk about Bissell taking the mousetrap and making it better! I also broke the 6 inch attachment on it's first use (I guess I am stronger than I though LOL) ... and Bissell didn't even question it. They just sent me a new one. How great is that. This is the machine you want ... SA WEET ...

Love my Big Green Deep Cleaner

By Crimson59 from Oklahoma, USA on 03/26/2013

I thought I was going to have to replace my carpet after cleaning it twice with another brand rental. I am amazed how my light carpet looks after cleaning it with my new Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine. It looks almost like new!!! I can't wait to use it on the rest of the house! Thank you, Bissell! It is so nice to always have this machine at my disposal....no more hauling a rental back and forth and having to hurry to get the job done!

Absolute satisfaction

By Anita from Nine Mile Falls, WA 99026, USA on 03/19/2013

We have only used our Green Machine one time, but we are absolutely amazed at how clean our carpets cleaned up. We have experienced before that carpets were very wet after cleaning them with other machines, and the carpets were so close to dry we could not believe it. We feel it will pay for itself in just a couple uses with the price we pay for carpet cleaning company fees. It is absolutely a smart purchase.... Anita Adams

I Am Pleased With The Results

By Big Green from Charleston, SC, USA on 03/18/2013

I just purchased this machine a couple of weeks ago and I have used it only once. I cleaned the carpet in three bedrooms, a hall and a stairway. I am pleased with the overall operation and the cleaning results. In a two story home, the weight of this machine is something to consider but I removed the tanks and it was managable. This replaced a Hoover machine that began leaking and some of the plastic parts broke all around the same time. The upper tank of the Big Green seems to be made of a similar quality plastic but the bottom tank seems to be a more durable type of plastic. I paid a good bit more for the Big Green and I have high expectations for its durability.

Awesome Machine!!

By kpaj from Hazen, ND 58545, USA on 03/17/2013

Purchased because of the 5-star review but had never used one prior....always had it professionally cleaned but we are tired of paying that high price. This machine performed better than my expectations according to reviews. Extremely satisfied! My carpets(berber) feel so soft & are as clean as a professional job if not better. The price of the machine is the cost to have my house professionally cleaned one time. Would highly recommend it.

it SUCKS...in a great way

By AJ from Ann Arbor, MI, USA on 03/15/2013

Although a bit heavy and takes some effort to maneuver, it seems to do a great job cleaning and an especially great job at drying. highly recommended! Primarily for cleaning up after cats and heavy traffic areas. Does a great job but it chokes a little on the buildup of cat hair as you clean. I can't imagine that any cleaner could handle that better but it is noteworthy. Overall, it was a great purchase and I expect many years of reliable usage.

Great Product

By Eye Doc from Lakewood, CO, USA on 03/13/2013

After reading the reviews on your website, I felt that almost all the purchasers felt it was a reliable, easy to use, and efficient carpet shampooer. I would agree. I tried it on a rental condo carpet and was very pleased with the appearance and the feel of the carpet. It was astounding how much dirt was in the dirty water tank. I'm looking forward to cleaning all the carpets in my home

Purchased 2013

By R & D from Alabama, USA on 03/05/2013

Amazing cleaner! Effortlessly cleaned the whole home and our rental unit. It picked up spots that we didn't think were coming up. It works even better when pre-treated, but it might not have been neccessary. So glad we spent the extra money, this is far superior to a normal steam cleaner.

Cleans Great But..

By D.Engel from Brookfield, WI, USA on 03/03/2013

The big green machine cleans great, but is difficult for my wife to push back and forth. Things which could improve the machine is [1] a better cord winding system, not over the handle, much more like upright vaccums have and [2] a good light on the machine's front to let you see cleaning results.

Lives up to the reviews

By multipets from Doylestown, PA, USA on 03/01/2013

I had no intention of investing this kind of money in a carpet cleaner until I read the reviews for the Big Green. I thought I would just buy another Proheat 2x. I have multiple animals so I clean my carpets several times a year. The reveiws were spot on as to how good this machine is. The real test was when I cleaned the 10year old, light beige, builder grade carpet in the "cats room". Every stain was removed and it looks like new! I was thinking of replacing it, but no need to now. I was also amazed as to how dirty the dirty tank water was, the Proheat never got this kind of dirt out of the carpets. You have nothing to lose in trying it, Bissell gives you 30 days to try it and if you don't like it, you can return it for only a few dollars in shipping costs. That was my thought when I placed the order and I have NO intention of returning it.

Powerful and Convenient

By ebzlady from Los Alamitos, CA, USA on 02/27/2013

I loved my ProHeat 2X for several years, yet I decided it was time for something more powerful for my parents carpets. They hadn't been cleaned in nearly 10 years. The Big Green was exactly what I needed. Because the carpets needed industrial-strength care, I wanted to tackle the house a few rooms at a time, and having the convenience of my own machine, I was able to work at my own pace. This allowed me to systematically tackle a BIG job, with little wear and tear on ME. Well worth buying, rather than renting a machine, and with the condition of the carpets, hiring a professional would certainly have exceeded the cost of purchasing my own machine -- so glad I "bit the bullet". By the way, the carpets look great!!!

Big Green Bissell

By Norris from San Francisco, CA, USA on 02/26/2013

dido : to this review - no more needs to be said I've used Rug Doctor and this blows it away. The carpet is left a lot dryer and cleaner. My carpet feels as soft and clean as the first day it was installed. Cleanup is so easy. I even clean the roller, three screws and it pops right out and allowing you to clean underneath making it as clean as it was when it was shipped to me. If it ever broke, I would buy another, it's just that good.

By MikeH from Charleston, SC, USA on 02/25/2013

When delivered, the wastewater lid wa s broken. I believe it was caused by insuffient packaging. A replacement came quickly. This machine replaced a lower cost Hoover product. You get what you pay for. The Bissell did an excellent job. It w.as worth the money

The Best Bissell Ever! Worth every Penny!

By JlP from Sturbridge, MA, USA on 02/15/2013

I had the Pro-Heat machine, that I thought was good. I needed to buy a new machine and this one was recommended by house painter! The machine is easy to use and clean. I have never had such clean rugs! I was amazed at how much dirt came out of my rugs even though I cleaned them repeatedly with the Pro-Heat machine. My rugs have never been this clean. It is amazing how it changes the color of a carpet! (dirt) I also used the attachment for furniture and the results were amazing! It did a better job than the professional furniture cleaner I hired. Don't bother buying a cheaper model. Invest your money into this machine and you will not be disappointed. I cannot say enough about how well this machine cleans.

Simply Awesome

By Steven from Stevenson Ranch, CA, USA on 02/14/2013

We have white carpet and 3 dogs so we need a carpet cleaner. I've used a number of different machines and this one is heads-and-sholders above the competition. The product is well engineered and well built. Some of the notable features [not all] include: ** Large capacity solution and extraction tanks. ** BOTH tanks are removable for easy refill and dump. ** Two motors, 1 for vacuum and 1 for brush. ** Great spraying control and agitation. ** Incredible extraction [can't say enough here]. ** Seals that really work -- NO leaks, dripping, etc. ** Great warranty [5 year] but I don't expect to need it.

Better than any rental machine!!

By StillShocked from Bradford, Bradford West Gwillimbury, ON, Canada on 02/10/2013

My wife and I have a large breed dog and have been battling the white carpets in our walkout basement ever since we moved in. We've found ourselves renting machines or borrowing ones from friends and they do an okay job. THEN, we stumbled across a deal of a lifetime on one of these from a local store and decided to try it. In one word...AMAZING! It did our entire basement on less than one tank full of water and pulled unspeakable things from our carpet making it look like new again. I'm still speechless at how well this works. We haven't used the handheld attachment yet but hope that it works just the same. Good job, Bissell!!

Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine

By DD from Lancaster County, PA on 02/06/2013

I bought this machine after my old Bissell with the bladder would not extract all the fluid that was sprayed on the carpet. Plus I got tired of constantly having to empty and refill the VERY small tank and bladder. The Big Green got out stains that the other machine could not. I was able to clean my whole living room without having to empty and refill the tanks, my old machine wouldn't even do half of the room. PRO: Very large individual tanks. Being able to see how full the tanks were. Longer attachment hose. CONS: Does not have a heater to heat the water. There is not a clear rinse switch - the cleaning solution goes in with the clean water. I did a second pass after cleaning the whole room with just hot water to remove any residual cleaning solution. Machine was of course heavier and took a little more muscle to manuever it but I was able to do it and I have had back surgery. I also purchased the rotating brush attachment for the hose which worked great on the steps.

Big Great Machine!

By Avaria from Las Vegas, NV, USA on 02/03/2013

I've had plenty of those small, buy at the local box store, steam cleaners over the years. They last about 6 months or less and then something breaks. I was researching the smaller machines online and people would give 100 "great" reviews for a machine, and then others would give 40 "piece of junk and it broke in a few months" reviews on the exact same cleaner. I had to do something quickly because I have a 14 year old pit bull that is becoming senile and urinating in the hall way. After much research I came across the Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine. I read all the reviews of how great the machine is, but I was concerned about making a huge investment. Then I figured, "you know what? Those cheap machines are costing me more in the long run because I have to replace them every few months/years, so just get this one." I am sooo glad I did! Wow, this machine works GREAT! It cleans deep, sucks up all the water, is reliable, and has no issues. This is a real work horse that works like a professional model, and it is very easy to use too! I am very happy with this machine and would recommend it to everyone. By the way, the Bissel carpet cleaner works wonderfully - much better then the other enzyme brand stuff for urine smell.

Best ever used

By Phyl 77 from Sun City, Az on 01/21/2013

I purchased the Big Green Cleaning Machine this month and have cleaned the room where my rescue dog has continually urinated. I have to say this is the best machine I have ever used. It took up every stain, smell and left it like a new carpet and it is 14 years old. I know it is a little more expensive however the simple use and no having to put it together really counts with me. I would recommend it to anyone. Now I am getting ready to clean the rest of my house. Thats how excited I am about having it. Thanks Bissell!

One of the best purchases ever!!

By House with 3 Dogs from St Louis on 12/22/2012

I had done some research on carpet cleaners and decided to rent the Bissell Big Green from Lowes. My carpets looked awesome!! I usually have them professionally cleaned but decided to do it myself this time; they looked every bit as good or better than when the pros clean. I loved it so much and it was so easy I decided to buy the Big Green. Definately worth it if you clean your carpets 3-4 times a year like I do. I have no regrets!!

Best machine ever

By Mac from Cleveland, OH, USA on 12/12/2012

I purchased the Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine on 12/2/2012. It was shipped even before their estimated shipment date. I have cream colored carpeting in my whole house. I have 2 cats and 2 dogs that sometimes will get sick and stain the carpet. I have tried every stain cleaner imaginable. I even had a Bissel Pro steam. This past weekend I decided to clean the carpets. I took the machine out of the box and it was already assembled. The tanks were much larger making less filling and less emptying. The machine was easy to operate and I was amazed that all the stains came out and my carpet and looks like new again. I took pictures before and after and my friends couldn't believe the difference. A friend of mine owns rental properties and she said she will be getting one after I showed her the pictures. You may think that its pricey but it is well worth the money and will pay for itself in no time. I was a skeptic after reading the reviews thinking nothing could be this good but I am not a skeptic any longer.

The BEST out there...

By kansasgirl1971 from Salina, KS, USA on 12/01/2012

I've been renting this machine from Lowe's for rental properties that we own. I've decided to take the leap and just purchase one. When the carpets need cleaned it's inconvenient to go to Lowe's and make sure it's back on time. This beast has cleaned some pretty gnarly, nasty and stained carpets. This is the best cleaning tool in my arsenal. You can't go wrong. It's very easy to use and not very heavy. Be sure to use the carpet cleaner that is recommended and you won't be sorry. Superior quality and excellent product. Thanks Bissell!

By Brian0 from NC on 11/22/2012

This is the best Commercial Machine you can purchase on the Market today...the Rug Doctor does not even come close to the quality of this m/c..I don't know why Bissell does not have these replacing every Rug Doctor in the country. Less fillings by 2 to 1 over the Rug Doctor & except for possibly a gasket...I don't see anything that can break, if you maintain it. Only thing better my be a truck mounted steam cleaner.

Fantastic Work

By Joy from California, USA on 11/12/2012

I brought the Big Green Machine because I have two little grandchildren and Ecru carpet. Between the sandbox and the wood chips, my carpet truly needed some help. So two weeks ago I brought the Big Green Machine... I used it for the first time last weekend and it I could not believe my eyes. My carpet looks fantastic. It worked the first time and I am so glad I saw the demo on TV. Big Green cleaned better than I expected.

Great Machine

By Dana from Lititz, PA on 08/21/2012

I have owned probably 8 machines over the years. The last two being Bissel. I use the machine probably harder than most. We have kids, grandkids, and pets needless to say. I was always very pleased with my Bissel's other than wearing them out to quickly. I also manage properties so use it alot for that also. This unit is by far better than the standard residential units I have been using and is simple to use. It isn't as bulky as it looks. Easy to manuver and the power is awesome. For the extra few dollars from the others I am pretty sure it is going to outlast all of them. Definatley worth the upgrade to anyone who uses their carpet cleaner frequently.

Purchased Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine

By Denny from Portland Oregon on 08/21/2012

We purchased the Big Green Cleaning Machine and we are very happy we did. We should have purchased one of there years ago. It's easy to use, easy to fill, easy to clean and does a great job of cleaning the carpets. It also works very good on your hard floors. We have a lot of tile floors and it just cleans them very well. It will pick up all the dirt and cleaning solution and the floors are dry when you finish. This is a great product and you won't be disapointed with your results.

The BEST Machine Out There...Hands Down! Nothing Compares!

By Family of Five from Michigan, USA on 08/12/2012

Having 3 children and all their friends over all the time our carpets do get pretty roughed up...dirty shoes, spilled food, etc. We have always rented the Rug Doctor to get our carpet looking good again and never considered anything else. We were in our local grocery store a couple weeks ago and saw this machine. My husband and I decided we would try it to see how it did. We rented it, along with the upholstery tool, and used it over the last couple days. WOW!!!! We will NEVER be renting another Rug Doctor again! Our carpets look NEW again! The high traffic areas look CLEAN! Our carpets dried quickly, my sofa and chairs look great, and I LOVE the up and back motion instead of the Rug Doctor which you have to lift up and push it all the way forward then set it down and pull it back. The design is amazing! The solution measuring cup is the lid to the clean water tank. You don't have to use a water pitcher to fill it, just take it to the tub! The dirty water tank doesn't have a large lip so it's easier to dump and get all the sand and dirty water out. The clean water tank lasts longer, which means less trips to the bathroom and back. We also used it to clean our kitchen floor, which is vinyl, and it came SOOO clean! This is an amazing machine and we will be buying one!!! Bissell, we have always believed in you as a vacuum cleaner manufacturer, and own the PowerGroom and LOVE it, but you have now acquired 1 more steam cleaner customer!!!!! Keep doing what you're doing!

Best cleaner EVER..get what you pay for /this one

By Big Green Girl from NC on 08/04/2012

I love this cleaner..I am an old Bissell customer who has the old original canister round big green machine and it still works and has not died. I needed another one for my condo at the beach, needless to say I decided to buy the 2X proheat based on the consumer reports and was very dissappointed, I ended up returning it and got my money back. That did not live up to the reviews. I finally decided to bite the bullet and pay the extra and get the follow-on to the Big Green machine I've had for 10+ years. This new one was the best purchase I've ever made for my home, I am a clean freak and like to keep the house clean and this baby is the answer to carpets. It actually does better than a professional carpet cleaner which I've hired multiple times at the beach house. The carpets look brand new and all spots, etc. are gone in a couple of sweeps over the carpet. It fluffs the carpet as well making it feel great afterwards. The water container capacity is wonderful allowing you to do several rooms without having to dump and refill constantly like I had to do with the 2x Proheat. The assembly was nothing! My husband loved that, just pulled it out of the box and its ready to go. The instructions are simple, if you can't work this one, you don't need to be using a cleaner! The drying time for this cleaner is also the best I've experienced EVER, including a professional cleaner. It's a little heavy but I have had back problems and this machine didn't bother me one bit, I used 2 hands and that worked great. If you are wanting a great cleaning machine and don't mind the extra cost please buy this one...HANDS DOWN THE BEST CLEANER...take it from me, consumer Guide reports was wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are going on cost, I'm going on getting the job done and this machine will do that for you. You won't be sorry you bought it!

Great light weight machine

By Momof3dogs from Camden, De on 07/07/2012

About a year ago we had Stanley Steamer come clean our (1 year old) carpets and we were disappointed. They couldn't get a pet stain out and our carpets did not look any cleaner. We have since adopted 2 puppies who get excited and dribble as they walk. Our carpet was hideous. I rented the Big Green deep cleaning machine and did the carpets and couches. The pet stains came out, even the one the professionals couldn't do and our house looks and smells new.

Great machine, but....

By Phil P. from Sherrard, IL 61281, USA on 07/06/2012

This machine is easy to use, easy tanks to use and carry, and does a good job of cleaning. But I have one BIG complaint. It leaves big balls of fuzz all over the floor! I had read about this complaint in other reviews. AND it's described in the ops manual! I want to clean the carpet, let it dry, and then enjoy the clean carpet. But no... there is still more work to do before you're done. I do not like that. Why can't this machine "pick up after itself"?

The BEST period.

By Jimmy 1969 from Centerville, OH, USA on 06/05/2012

First, Thank you Bissell. You have engineered the best carpet cleaning machine money can buy. After my first use of this machine on our white carpet it proved to me that nothing else will ever do a better job. I have been using the original and very first BIG GREEN CLEANING MACHINE I was given as a gift in 1995. It lasted without a single repair for 3 houses, 4 kids, 4 dogs, 3 cats and what must be without a doubt miles of carpet cleaning. Last month the trigger handle started to leak and to my great dismay the replacement part was no longer made just less than a year ago. Searched like crazy to find a part on line you name it, they are gone. :( So with that I decided to get a new machine. I bought and tried 3 other machines. They all went back to the store. They DO NOT hold enough cleaning solution. I'm telling you about the old machine simply because it gives credit to my Bissell experience with one great machine for 17 years. It still runs mind you. Just has a leaking trigger handle. Ok, moving on, the new Big Green cleaned several high traffic areas that nothing has ever been able to clean. Even after a good effort with the old machine could not clean the new BIG GREEN made my white carpet like new again. The ground in dirt is now gone. I took pictures on my phone as I cleaned the floor to message my wife and show her the results. I was shocked. I kept saying as I was cleaning "You are a total beast." If you use the Bissell high end cleaner and spend time going over the high traffic areas this thing will clean it. Also, I never even broke a sweat. The BIG GREEN did all the work. NO regrets. Like every other review it is worth every dollar. You get what you pay for with this machine. If I see bad reviews of this machine I would seriously question them. It is simple to use and a simple design that should last and clean for years to come. It paid for itself the first time I used it because I thought I was going to need to buy new carpet. Not anymore. They have been deep cleaned by the beast and I have pictures to prove it. :)

Don't bother with other cleaners.............

By Clean Rugs Now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! from Brooksville, FL, USA on 05/24/2012

This machine cleaned carpet heavily soiled and spotted in our house, that we were going to rip up and replace with tile. It looks new now! It was amazing how much dirt and garbage it pulled out of the rug area. Uses about 2/3rds less chemical than brand x rental machines. We also pre-spotted as recommened. Some of the really bad food stain/ spots needed to be gone over more than once, but you can't tell they were even there now. If you can't afford one then go rent one. We already got our $$$ worth in one use as most of the house is carpet. Just take your time and let the machine do the work. Criss-cross cleaning bad stains helps. Best $$$ we ever spent!!!!!!!!!! :) Thanks, Bissell!!!!!

By MikeW from Spring, TX on 05/09/2012

Best carpet cleaner that I have ever used! Last year, I rented a Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine and was so impressed with how easy it was to use and what an awesome job it did cleaning my carpet that I bought one. Money well spent...just can't say enough good about the product!

worth every penny

By JEFF& DEBBIE from LOS ANGELES, CA on 04/29/2012

We have used all the rentals out there, so we decided to invest in our own. this unit was so easy to use. Did 5 rooms and was really impressed at the ease at which we were able to finish. We could get a tank per room , some more. which limited our use of cleaner. Very impressed with everything about this unit, especially a 5 year warranty. best buy of the decade for us.They couldnt make it any easier to use straight out of the box ready.

I have used all of the orther carpets cleaner available in the past and this one works very well.. In the long run although this machine may cost more it works so much better than one of the other machines that cost as must as this one. it did a good clean on my carpet. i would buy again if i had to. if you need a good carpets cleaner buy this one it will do the job one do Share this review:

Best steam cleaner - great value

By VW from Cincinnati, OH, USA on 04/11/2012

This machine is the best for cleaning. I have had my carpets cleaned by professional companies and this machine does as good, if not a better job than they have for less. After renting this the first time, I decided I would go ahead and purchase one. I have realized that since I like to be able to do my carpets when I want to, it would work out better to just buy one. I love having the machine available when I need it without having to rent one again and again. I have used all of the various models available in the past and this one works absolutely fabulously. The new Bissell products work really great also. In the long run although this machine may cost more initially it works so much better than one of the smaller machines that cost almost as much as this one.

the best!

By pyates41 from Milwaukee, WI, USA on 04/06/2012

I have light grey carpet and 3 Yorkies. Due to this we shampoo carpets at least 1 a month. Over the last 8 years we have gone through 6 shampooers, up to this point we perfered the Hoover uprights the best because they extracted much better than the Bissell uprights. I also had a Rug Doctor like you see for rent, it was returned soon after its first use. Last month my Hoover broke, so I had to rent a Rug Doctor, it did what I thought was a good job, but it kills my back and my wife had the same problem. Yesterday I used my new Green Machine for the 1st time, only 2 weeks after a very exhausting cleaning with the Rug Doctor. I was simply amazed at how much dirt i removed from my carpet, by looking at the waste water you would have thought it hadn't been done in years, this morning when i got up and walked on the carpet barefooted i could not believe how good it felt. The capacity of the water tanks is another great feature. This machine also leaves the carpet very dry, by the time i finished it was dry where i had started. Useing this machine did not hurt my back either. I know some may be scared of the price tag, but it is worth every penny! Carpet shampooers are like anything else, you get what you pay for. After looking on several sites i found it was best to buy it direct from Bissell. I ordered it on a Saturday and it was shipped on Monday morning from Texas and was at my home in Milwaukee Wi. the very next day. I cannot remember the last time I have been so pleased with a purchased (maybe my Harley).

Best Machine Ever

By Stacey13 from Alta Loma, Rancho Cucamonga, CA, USA on 03/14/2012

I have used the other Bissell carpet cleaning machines, and they did a great job. The Big Green Deep Cleaning machine is just amazing. I moved into my home 12 years ago & am still remodeling all the rooms, but the living room carpet is the worst. I used my machine this past week & was utterly amazed by how clean the carpet got. I know if I had time to keep going over it that it would be even better. Even my family was amazed. I know it is pricey but it so worth it. I luv this machine.

Dirt and Dog Hair Carpets You have met you MATCH!

By BM Big Green from Grand Prairie, TX, USA on 02/19/2012

I bought this machine today and just cleaned my entire house took me about 3-4 hours to do but my carpets are finally clean. (Carpeted area in the house is about 1500 sq.ft.) But I vacuumed and vacuumed and still don't think anything could pull out as much hair as this thing did. I recently bought the house, I am living in I don't think the people who lived in the house before me every shampooed the carpet and probably did not even vacuum that well. The tank almost looked black with all the dirt and grim that was in these carpets yet the carpet is only 2 years old. I would highly recommend the BIG GREEN to anyone after using it. Especially since I was considering purchasing a rug doctor and when comparing the two machines there is no comparison. The rug doctor has flimsy hoses that connect to the tank and the big green does not less moving parts mean less likely to break. Need I mention that the Rug doctor that I looked at on display that was new and never used already had cracked hoses (the biggest complaint on the Rug Doctor website as well). So I must say to close my comment out "Bissell you have out done yourself with this cleaner and with the Big Green and my will to clean even the dirtiest carpets nothing stands a chance, but clean carpets in the end!"

Dogs, Kids & Dirt

By Mom from NH on 02/11/2012

I have owned many carpet cleaners, uprights, cannisters and some were " other brands" but I always come back to Bissell. What I have paid in the last 10 years for cleaners more then covers this one. With a 5 year warranty it is worth every penny. My carpets take a beating and the day this arrived I used it in my worst room the family room. The amount of dirt I removed hurt my feelings but the fact that the carpets were clean and dry in 2 hours was worth the hurt feelings. The suction does very well at removing the dirty water and leaving it SLIGHTLY damp. I will recommend this to everyone I know!!!

Excellent Performance

By Trimline from Orlando, FL, USA on 01/31/2012

I've had a number of cleaners and was at first hesitant with the price, but I am so glad I purchased this machine. My family room is between the kitchen and the pool area, and you guessed it, the light carpet is easily soiled, especially with 2 dogs coming in and out. With one cleaning, the carpets looked brand new again. The machine holds a lot of cleaning fluid and is a breeze to operate. I would not hesitate to recommend Big Green. In my opinion, it out performs any cleaner on the market, and believe me, after 22 years in this house, I've tried quite a few.

Works as advertised

By Keith from Muskegon, MI, USA on 01/31/2012

We purchased the cleaner almost a year ago and have now used it a number of times as well as our family members who continue to borrow it. The bristle bar spins fast like a vacuums beater bar, really scrubbing the carpet. The suction is very powerful, pulling out most of the water that's applied. It truely is a short drying time between the powerful suction and the heater/ blower under the machine. I now see the big green offered for commercial use/rent at large stores that used to offer the Red commercial machine.

Simply THE BEST Carpet Deep Cleaner Out There!

By Stickler for Quality and Value from Plano, TX, USA on 01/30/2012

The Big Green Clean Machine is the best carpet shampooer I ever used. The heavy-duty quality construction, efficient design, ease of use, & unbelievable cleaning effectiveness make this carpet shampooer the best one on the market today. It was a snap to use & even got out soap and grime left behind by another brand machine. The sample of the Bissell professional strength cleaning solution that came with the machine was outstanding. Less cleaning solution cleaned better than any other product I had used before & did not require the use of a defoamer like the other brand did. I was amazed how thoroughly Big Green cleaned the carpet & totally vacuumed up the water. It was phenomenal how dry the carpet was immediately after shampooing. It dried completely in just a few hours. (I mention this fact because the other brand of machine that I had used before left my rug so wet that I had to use my utility vacuum to vacuum up the water it left behind--even after all that, it still took a long time to dry,) With Big Green, my carpet was clean, dry, & looked as close to new as could be expected with a lot less effort (fewer strokes) & time. I love that I have my own Big Green Machine in house that I can use any time I need too. It also comes with an portable cleaning tool & hose which are also of a heavy duty construction. Don't waste your money on services or other brands of cleaners--GO BIG GREEN CLEAN MACHINE!

Great machine

By Ginger from Seattle on 01/24/2012

Best cleaning unit I've ever used. Tried just about every cleaning machine out there and this one beats them all. I even cleaned my mother-in-laws condo. She couldn't believe it! Better than the professionals! the hose is easy to use so cleaning stairs was easier than I thought and when i had to clean it OMgosh I didn't have to take it outside or lift the entire unit. Thank you Bissell.

Best carpet cleaner ever!

By R.M. from Indiana, USA on 01/17/2012

We bought a 20 yr old house that was previously a rental, and parts of the high traffic areas were black. We suspected the carpet hasn't ever been cleaned. I was skeptical at first about whether or not it would work, or help the look of our carpet. We used the big green machine on 4 rooms, and what came out of the carpet after each change, was - shocking. The water was opaque and black. I have never seen water that dirty, and was ill that it was in the carpet. I was skeptical no more! The carpet looks much better now and the whole house smelled wonderful after cleaning too! The Big Green machine is simple to use and WORTH every penny. This is the only cleaner you will ever need. I now want to own one, and will sometime this year. Thank you Bissell for such a great product!
