Rated 5 out of 5 by PGM The RED Machine vs. the GREEN Machine
I do not own any machine but I have always rented them. Always renting the heavy Red Machine, I was out looking for the rental. I ran across the BIG GREEN at my local Lowe's. I rented this machine hurried home to start my long morning carpet cleaning. I hurried home that morning because I knew that it would take me several hours of work and all the rest of the day with all my windows open, fans blowing, and my back hurting after all that pushing and pulling. WOW BIG GREEN I am in love...lol...This machine is awesome. It is very easy to operate, it is easy to navigate, it places just the right amount of cleaning fluid on the carpet, and NO BACK PAIN! I finished my cleaning in record time and guess what...my carpets look newly installed. My carpets dried in record time and did I mention how clean. I did such a great job I am about to purchase this unit. Oh my neighbor now rents this same unit because she saw how clean my carpets were. Thanks Bissell for making my life better!

I have used the other Bissell carpet cleaning machines, and they did a great job. The Big Green Deep Cleaning machine is just amazing. I moved into my home 12 years ago & am still remodeling all the rooms, but the living room carpet is the worst. I used my machine this past week & was utterly amazed by how clean the carpet got. I know if I had time to keep going over it that it would be even better. Even my family was amazed. I know it is pricey but it so worth it. I luv this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BM Big Green Dirt and Dog Hair Carpets You have met you MATCH!
I bought this machine today and just cleaned my entire house took me about 3-4 hours to do but my carpets are finally clean. (Carpeted area in the house is about 1500 sq.ft.) But I vacuumed and vacuumed and still don't think anything could pull out as much hair as this thing did. I recently bought the house, I am living in I don't think the people who lived in the house before me every shampooed the carpet and probably did not even vacuum that well. The tank almost looked black with all the dirt and grim that was in these carpets yet the carpet is only 2 years old. I would highly recommend the BIG GREEN to anyone after using it. Especially since I was considering purchasing a rug doctor and when comparing the two machines there is no comparison. The rug doctor has flimsy hoses that connect to the tank and the big green does not less moving parts mean less likely to break. Need I mention that the Rug doctor that I looked at on display that was new and never used already had cracked hoses (the biggest complaint on the Rug Doctor website as well). So I must say to close my comment out "Bissell you have out done yourself with this cleaner and with the Big Green and my will to clean even the dirtiest carpets nothing stands a chance, but clean carpets in the end!"

I have owned many carpet cleaners, uprights, cannisters and some were " other brands" but I always come back to Bissell. What I have paid in the last 10 years for cleaners more then covers this one. With a 5 year warranty it is worth every penny. My carpets take a beating and the day this arrived I used it in my worst room the family room. The amount of dirt I removed hurt my feelings but the fact that the carpets were clean and dry in 2 hours was worth the hurt feelings. The suction does very well at removing the dirty water and leaving it SLIGHTLY damp. I will recommend this to everyone I know!!!

I had been using another manufacturers rug cleaning machine. Many times I felt the machine was not cleaning well and dirt was still deeply embeded in the rug. Well finaly this machine stop working in the middle of doing the rugs in the house. I went to local Home Depot and they had this machine on sale. Well when I got home and put it together I put it to the test and the part that had been done before I redid it and lo and behold the dirt it pulled from it was astonishing1 I was sold and my wife was too. We use it at least once a month due to the fact we have two dogs and they do track dirt into the house. I must say I have not been disappionted with it's performance and cleaning ability

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joe1958 WOW! what a great carpet cleaner.
I can't beleive what a great job Big Green did on my carpets. I have off white carpet and a new puppy, need I say more? I had another brand cleaner and was happy with the job it did but I broke so I decided to get a Bissell and was so very glad I did! I still can't believe what a great job it .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trimline Excellent Performance
I've had a number of cleaners and was at first hesitant with the price, but I am so glad I purchased this machine.
My family room is between the kitchen and the pool area, and you guessed it, the light carpet is easily soiled, especially with 2 dogs coming in and out.
With one cleaning, the carpets looked brand new again. The machine holds a lot of cleaning fluid and is a breeze to operate. I would not hesitate to recommend Big Green. In my opinion, it out performs any cleaner on the market, and believe me, after 22 years in this house, I've tried quite a few.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Keith Works as advertised
We purchased the cleaner almost a year ago and have now used it a number of times as well as our family members who continue to borrow it. The bristle bar spins fast like a vacuums beater bar, really scrubbing the carpet. The suction is very powerful, pulling out most of the water that's applied. It truely is a short drying time between the powerful suction and the heater/ blower under the machine. I now see the big green offered for commercial use/rent at large stores that used to offer the Red commercial machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stickler for Quality and Value Simply THE BEST Carpet Deep Cleaner Out There!
The Big Green Clean Machine is the best carpet shampooer I ever used. The heavy-duty quality construction, efficient design, ease of use, & unbelievable cleaning effectiveness make this carpet shampooer the best one on the market today. It was a snap to use & even got out soap and grime left behind by another brand machine. The sample of the Bissell professional strength cleaning solution that came with the machine was outstanding. Less cleaning solution cleaned better than any other product I had used before & did not require the use of a defoamer like the other brand did. I was amazed how thoroughly Big Green cleaned the carpet & totally vacuumed up the water. It was phenomenal how dry the carpet was immediately after shampooing. It dried completely in just a few hours. (I mention this fact because the other brand of machine that I had used before left my rug so wet that I had to use my utility vacuum to vacuum up the water it left behind--even after all that, it still took a long time to dry,) With Big Green, my carpet was clean, dry, & looked as close to new as could be expected with a lot less effort (fewer strokes) & time. I love that I have my own Big Green Machine in house that I can use any time I need too. It also comes with an portable cleaning tool & hose which are also of a heavy duty construction. Don't waste your money on services or other brands of cleaners--GO BIG GREEN CLEAN MACHINE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaxson10 Good Machine
I use the Rug Doctor many many times . Not sure why but went to Lowe's and rented a Big Green . Very pleased how good it cleans and how fast carpet drys. The other machine took all day for the carpets to dry, the Big green only took a couple of hours for carpet to dry. Also when the soap runs out you dump dirty water a same time, not so with the other unit. So finally I was able to get one . Very happy with machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dawnjmh Truly Great Carpet Cleaning Machine
I rented the Bissell Big Green a couple times from Lowe's prior to purchasing mine so I knew the features and how well it actually worked. I had used Rug Doctor machines in the past and just really liked the ease of the Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine so much MORE. I live in Indiana and I have four dogs that are in and out of the house all the time. In the past, I had purchased the Bissell ProHeat 2X and while it was lighter and easy to use, it didn't do as great a job as the Bissell Big Green Machine. In fact, after about a year and a half the pump went out on the ProHeat model. So, that was a huge consideration when I went to purchase the Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine. It's great to have it in my home so that I can clean a small spot or if I just decide to do one room without the hassle of going somewhere to rent one. I can clean carpets before our family gatherings and holidays, all ON MY OWN SCHEDULE rather than killing myself trying to get it all done in one day. I thing you'll absolutely love this machine!!!

Best cleaning unit I've ever used. Tried just about every cleaning machine out there and this one beats them all. I even cleaned my mother-in-laws condo. She couldn't believe it! Better than the professionals!
the hose is easy to use so cleaning stairs was easier than I thought and when i had to clean it OMgosh I didn't have to take it outside or lift the entire unit.
Thank you Bissell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by R.M. Best carpet cleaner ever!
We bought a 20 yr old house that was previously a rental, and parts of the high traffic areas were black. We suspected the carpet hasn't ever been cleaned.
I was skeptical at first about whether or not it would work, or help the look of our carpet.
We used the big green machine on 4 rooms, and what came out of the carpet after each change, was - shocking. The water was opaque and black. I have never seen water that dirty, and was ill that it was in the carpet. I was skeptical no more!
The carpet looks much better now and the whole house smelled wonderful after cleaning too!
The Big Green machine is simple to use and WORTH every penny. This is the only cleaner you will ever need.
I now want to own one, and will sometime this year. Thank you Bissell for such a great product!
