Rated 5 out of 5 by Captain131 Sure does the Job easily. I'm anxious to do the carpets again.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tony Great choice and great purchase
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.

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.

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;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eric Excellent with my recommendation
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clean freak AWESOME machine!
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!

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!!!!!!

I rented this cleaner from Lowes. It did an amazing job, really impressed my husband that he bought me one. I love it and so easy to use. Deep cleans carpet and dries really fast. Once I finished second side of the room the first was already dry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by afjf90 make sure you live close to a service center
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.

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!

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 5 out of 5 by Oldieman None As Good. Absolutely NONE!!!
Surviving on a meager retirement income, I can never purchase a Big Green. But whenever I rent a carpet cleaner in the future, it will ALWAYS be a Big Green. If you are considering investing in a carpet cleaner, look no further: The Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine beats them all. Buy it! You won't be disappointed.

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???

Rated 5 out of 5 by OCFloridian Outstanding machine
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wasan Incredible Clean!! Cuts Cleaning time in HALF!!!
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!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jgunz510 Simply Awesome!!
I discovered this cleaner at my local Petsmart after getting a puppy that was very sick and couldn't control herself. I was so impressed that I started looking for similar cleaners and found Big Green at Fry's for $399! I jumped in my car, raced down there, verified price, did a few cartwheels on my way to the register and in 20 minutes, piles of puppy po-po were positively petrified as I pulverized the pockets of pe-pe with great zeal. Needless to say, the cats, the puppy and the little woman are all very happy and I can safely navigate my halls in the middle of the night again when nature calls. Thanks Bissell for a great product!

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. Thanks

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 ...

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!

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....

Rated 4 out of 5 by Big Green I Am Pleased With The Results
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.
