Rated 5 out of 5 by Jules63 Best Bissell yet
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rich from Fungus Corners It's better than it sounds
After renting carpet cleaners for many years and sometimes paying for a professional cleaner I bought the Bissell BGM as a Christmas present. It sat in the box until July because the carpet didn't look dirty, until a friend with a 10-week old puppy came to visit. You know puppies. Bought my supplies at Wally World and then found a 24oz bottle of cleaner in the box when I opened it. Duh! But I needed a bottle of pet stain remover anyway, and it worked wonders! This thing is engineered well. I like how it can get right along the wall because the wheels are inset. Yeah, it works best if you aren't in a hurry and take 3-4 foot swipes (rather than the length of the room). But it's not too heavy to move about. The indicators let you know what's happening and the proof of the effectiveness of the device is when you empty the discharge bucket. Good grief that "clean"carpet was filthy. Sometimes the machine spits out these little hair balls that previously rented machines didn't. They must have left the small hairs in the carpet. And we don't have a dog or cat (except for the puppy that visited). We have 13 carpeted stairs and used the upholstery attachment - worked very well. I recommend this Big Green Machine to anyone that has carpets to clean. Happy wife, happy life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by psr52 Easy is the one word I'd use to describe the 86T3.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dot Love, love, love this machine
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!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emmy82 this machine is amazing!
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.

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.

Had the canister Big Green Machine and loved it . Finally died and they stop backing the canister so I bought the newer one and it is just great. Always will buy Bissell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bud Very good product
I was going to buy a Rug Doctor as I had rented one last year however I found it hard to manipulate becaus the bigger water tank. The Bissell handles very well with the lesser weight but sometims turning the critter is a little difficult. What I did first was that I sprayed shampoo onto the floorv and let it soak and then I went over it all with the machine and more shampoo but I had to "scrub" some areas to get some of the stains out. All in all I'm very satisfied with the Big Breen Machine. I wish now I would have bought the higher model. I would recommend this to my mother.
