Rated 5 out of 5 by Denny A Professional Quality Carpet Cleaning Machine
We received our new Big Green Cleaning Machine on Saturday via FedEx. I used it today for the first time on a light beige 9 x 12 area rug in our hearth room. We have only one comment........WOW !!!!
Our rug is in a high traffic area of the house and seems to attract a lot of dirt. We had , up until last week, another brand carpet cleaning machine that finally gave up the ghost. We researched carpet cleaning machines, and after reading about the 86T3, we decided that it was worth the investment, and bought it. Our dingy beige rug that we thought would have to be replaced came out looking brand new ! We are extremely happy with our decision to purchase your product. It is well engineered, quality built, and easy to use. Thank you for a GREAT product.
ps. My wife and I made a pact not to tell the family and/or friends that we now have the Green Machine in our house. I don't want the extra work that would entail.
We WILL recommend the Big Green Machine to anyone - family, friends, acquaintances, - interested in the best carpet cleaner on the market.

I never thought I would say I was in love with a carpet cleaning machine. I was on the fence about the price until my coworker bought one and raved about how good his 28 year old carpet looked. I bit the bullet and bought it. It took out old stains!!!! Very easy to use and I couldn't be happier about my purchase.

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.

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.

I was hesitant to get this machine due to the cost. It is worth every penny. It did a bang-up job. I had some spots in my carpets that I thought would never see the light of clean again. They see the "light". I thought they were ruined. It removed deep embed dust, dirt, and old drink spills from them. I thought some of the areas wouldn't be that dirty since I had recently cleaned with my older Bissell, boy was I mistaken. I could not believe the amount of dirt it removed. For once, I have CLEANED my carpets. As always with Bissell products, clean up of the machine after use was a breeze.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GingerLA What a great cleaner!
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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by JJB 56 Flow indicator replaced three times
I have owned the Big Green Machine for three years. The machine cleans very well and is very durable, but I have had the flow indicator replaced three times in the three years I have owned it. This is very annoying when you move all your bedroom furniture, only to have the machine start spurting water all over, and then have to wait two weeks for the part to come in. I would rate the machine a five if it were not for the machine breaking down every year I have owned it. They either have a bad part or bad design, but come on, same issue three times in three years. Come on Bissell engineers you know about this. FIX THIS PROBLEM. Read some other reviews on this issue.
