Rated 5 out of 5 by Barron's Mom WONDERFUL MACHINE
WOW what a machine this is. I just love it. This is a Birthday present for myself I order this yesterday 1/23/2014 from Bed Bath & Beyond and It arrived today 1/24/14 I also got 20% off with their coupon 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 (398.95)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..
Water stayed hot the whole time Hope this helps if you are on the fence about purchasing this great carpet cleaner

Rated 5 out of 5 by dirtydog One Word - WOW !
My dog is having issues with food and vomiting/bile. He had another bad day on Monday of this week and he jumped off my bed and proceeded to vomit red all over my light colored carpet. argh! I used the oxy clean spray but this was a very red stain and the area after many many times turned out pink.
My parents have a hoover and while ok, it left the carpets really wet. After reading all the reviews on the Bissell line it seems this top of the line model was the one that recieved all the good reviews. I ended up renting it at Lowes for $25 before spending this much money.
The stain I did not think was going to come out as the first few passes did not do much. No worries, just pulled the trigger and went back and forth a few more times and could not believe that the stain was coming out! I did this about 15-20 times and my carpet now looks new!!! I did use Arm and Hammer with oxy clean soap.
Just blew me away of how it got the stain out, I am sold!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carlos The best machine ever
I purchased the Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine about three weeks ago because my Pro Heat 2x Deep Cleaner decided enough was enough. After using the Big Green, I found it easier to clean carpets. It has a bigger tank than the Pro Heat and seems to clean better too. For those who can afford to purchase it, I would recommend it, if not you can also rent it from Lowe's. You will notice a big difference in how much better your carpet will look with the Big Green Machine. Also, be sure to use the cleaner that is included with the machine.

We have two older cats and a young Maltese puppy. The dog is trained to use the pads but sometimes he misses and his business goes onto the carpet. One of the cats is sick and while she’ll use the box for #1 she does #2 when and where the urge arises which is usually on the carpet in one room. Her #2 has been upset which made matters worse. There are lots of areas where there have been #1, #2 and throwup.. Most of the stains pretty much came up (some didn’t) using one of the spray cleaners but sometimes there would be a “cleaned spot” which stood out from the rest of the carpet. I mention all of this, not to be disgusting, but to give you an idea of what we were faced with on our carpet.
So after reading about carpet cleaners and watching comparisons online I ordered the Big Green Cleaning Machine from Amazon. The room was vacuumed twice and I used Big Green on it. I was amazed at how dirty the pickup water was in the top tank. All, and I mean all, the stains were gone. Our 12-year-old carpet literally looked almost new. One hint: if you are going north and south on an area that’s pretty soiled, change and go east and west also. This way all four sides of the carpet fibers are cleaned.
We have used the professional carpet cleaners before and they did a good job but Big Green does a great job! And, using the professionals a couple of three times would have paid for Big Green. With the pros, we would move all the furniture (except the big stuff) onto the tile one day and put it all back a day or two later. With Big Green you are not pressed for time and can do one room at a time. And, the carpet dries much faster.
Big Green appears to be solidly built and has a “good feel” about it. It came fully assembled and I all I had to do was add water and the cleaning solution. While it’s a little heavy (54 lbs.) it was not hard at all to use, even one handed.
My wife was so pleased with the results that she now wants me to clean all the carpets in the house. Thanks a lot Bissell Company for building such a great carpet cleaning machine that I now have to clean all the rooms. There goes my free time – just kidding – I’m looking forward to have a house full of clean carpet.
I highly recommend Big Green for cleaning carpets!
I do have two suggestions for the Big Green engineers that would improve, I think, the operation of Big Green.
1 - In empting the dirty water tank one holds the tank by the edges and pours out the dirty water. While the edges are not sharp they are a straight edge. It would be more comfortable if the edges were folded over so as to have a smooth surface to hold when pouring out the dirty water.
2 – In using Big Green I had to hold the power cord out of the way when pulling the cleaner toward me so the wheels would not ride over it. Could a “flexible wand:” be attached to one handle to hold the cord away from the unit?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pamepot What a difference a carpet cleaner makes
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 :)

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, 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by oldzoom Best Carpet Cleaning Machine For The Money
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...
