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.

Researched this 86T3 machine for some time and just got to use it tonight. We were all impressed with this machine for what it did to our carpets. All I can say is pay the price for the 86T3 and get you some clean carpet. Best money I spent in a long time. This machine is super easy to operate, a cave man can do it (and would be impressed), so go and get it today. It will not get better than this.

I have used many different carpet cleaners over the years and this is the best by far. Solidly constructed, it cleans deep down and removes most spots and stains without additional work. It is heavier and not as compact as some models, but you absolutely get what you pay for and its performance is unsurpassed.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mac Best machine ever
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 used the carpet cleaner to clean my Sofa and it worked very well on the smooth surfaces. I had not received the hand tools for cleaning the curved areas. I will get to that in the next few months. Still haven't used it on the carpet. BUT - so far, so good.

Cleans forward and backwards floor is half dry when done and gets up all the mess great value. Make sure you get extension hose for stairs ect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tom Good floor cleaner...but
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.
