Rated 5 out of 5 by Watchman Fantastic machine
As a former professional carpet cleaner I always called these types of machines, "soak and suck." I have rented this machine from Lowe's twice now and and am more than pleased with it's performance.
Having used the Big Green Cleaning machine I can no longer classify IT as a "soak and suck."
Fantastic Machine. 5 star PLUS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patti This produce is great for pet owners
I have never run across a machine that is so well made and a machine that can do it all when it comes to vacuum, rug, and hard floor cleaning. I'm grateful that all I need to do is switch one tool and continue cleaning in a different mode. It is just so easy to use and what a time saver when cleaning up after two dogs and a cat. This machine has great suction and I really like the wand on this machine. Thank you Bissell one machine does it all beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Megan Love my Big Green Complete!
After vacuuming and deep cleaning our carpets, my husband said they looked like new. I agree & am especially happy with the way the heavy traffic areas turned out. (We have a dog, 2 cats & live in the woods w/ sandy soil.) The house has never felt more clean.
It is helpful that all the pieces come apart & are easy to clean/rinse (if you have a utility sink).
A huge plus is that the Bissell cleaning products are biodegradable so I don't have to sacrifice the environment for having a clean home. Totally satisfied!

Rated 1 out of 5 by DigiRep Too Heavy to use
Good idea in a multi-use product but too heavy for me to use (women) and wish I did not purchase it. Also hard to fill; move and empty water. Essentially hard to use. Wasted my $$ in the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DEE IN WOODLYN SO FAR LOOKS GOOD.
I did get this in the mail, last week. looks pretty tough. Haven;t used it yet, but it looks great. So many attachments to use. Also I have 3 dogs, so this will do the trick. Very sturdy, and big to. A little more heavier then what I thought in the picture when I ordered it. Ask me again in 1 to 2 months, how it is. Cause I just had professionals come in and do the rugs for Christmas. Dee

Rated 5 out of 5 by Q Love love love this machine...
It exceeded the rented machine any day. It cleaned the carpet to new again. I have yet to use the bare floor part, but next week I will use that. I can say it is rather buldy machine, but I do not have to take it far out the door for my car. Worked great on my car..Electric cord was long enough for me and the attachment worked great.
Also I used your soap, loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sieloren I tried all the features today
I have an all tile house with many area rugs. I had been looking for hard floor cleaning machine for some time when my vacuum quit working and I suddenly needed both a vacuum and a hard floor cleaner.
I wanted a hard floor cleaner that also had a vacuum feature and if I got a new vacuum, a deep cleaner would be nice too.
After seeing a multi-floor type cleaning machine, I started researching all of the ones out there as well as the other options. I found this Bissell. I had a Green Machine several year ago and it worked really well. This machine seemed to fit the bill in that it claimed to meet all my needs. Although $300 is a lot, if I were to buy them separtely, it would cost about the same. So I took the plunge and purchased the Complete.
Today I used all the features. I read through the instructions because although it's not the most difficult thing to get started, you do have to add water even if not using the water cleaner. I tried the vacuum head first on a low pile area rug. It did the job. Probably not the most suction but enough to pick up the visible crumbs and dirt. I switch it to the multi-floor head to vacuum the rest of the tile floor. I love that one. It catches dust bunnies, crumbs and fits under the bed.
I then switched to the deep cleaner and it works well as well. The spray is a little wider than the head (causing some overspray# but not a huge deal. I finished up two rugs before I ran out of water, which was fine because there is a different solution for hard floors and I still wanted to try that out.
Refilled #which is a snap# and switched to the hard floor head. I had used a Shark before and the steam mops left my floors streaky. I don't know if it is the solution or the fact that it vacuums up most of the water, but my floors look good after drying. It cleaned all of the spots on my floor with a couple of passes.
Although it does take some technique to use each of the heads, after a few minutes experimenting, each was pretty simple to use and effective. The hard floor cleaner probably being the hardest to get used to.
Pros: easy to assemble and disassemble and clean, seems to be effective at each cleaning method, remember it is a generalist, water heater a plus too
Cons: it needs an additional handle #for my left hand to help use the wand), it takes a bit of technique to use each head correctly, and I had a small amount of water leak on the floor somehow when I switch back to vacuum after deep cleaning.
I do plan on keeping it, I am overall very please. I hope it will stand the test of time. I would give it a 4.5 stars.
