Rated 5 out of 5 by John Worth every dollar!
I rented a RD last year for the first time and it worked very well. So, with 4 places to take care of, decided to buy one of my own. Just to be sure, I decided to read the reviews of the RD and came across the reviews for the Big Green. I changed my mind and ordered the Big Green Pro. This beats the RD hands down. It cleans better and removes the water way better than the other machine. And, its much easier to use. The soap tank can be removed for filling rather then to have to fill up the other machine with a bucket. When done, everything comes apart for easy cleaning. The hand tool works well for hard to get at places and furniture. When compared to having my carpets professionally cleaned, this unit has paid for itself already and then some. Yes, its crazy to get excited about a carpet cleaner but thing is just amazing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed The cleaner worked great at first
I ordered this product from Bissell in October. The first time I used it I was very pleased. Within 6 weeks water was spouting out of the flow gauge and it was "striping" my carpets. I took it to the authorized servicer 30 minutes from my home. It has been at the servicer for over 6 weeks. I am disgusted after spending so much on the machine. I am curious to see if Bissell makes it right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ijames777 This Big Green Thing is great!
First, operation is highly intuitive, which is very helpful.
Second, the machine is heavy enough that the cleaning brushes are always in contact with the carpet.
Third, although I had thought of using my own cleaning fluid, I don't know now because Bissell's cleaning fluid really does the job.
Forth, I had to use the extension wand once to get to the carpet at the back door threshold and it worked really good too; it just required more umph.
Fifth, My experience is I shoot the cleaner until clean and suck up the excess and the carpet is dry within a couple of hours.
This is great and the carpet looks great.

I am so amazed at how this machine cleaned my carpets and the suction is so good. After about 1 hour, my carpets are dry. I have rented the rug doctor and was afraid this machine would be to heavy and difficult to handle, but it was not. This is a great machine to use on your home.

First of all I am very happy with my purchase!. Unit has a nice amount of weight that I know the brush is always making good contact. I work for a rental place renting the other brand and i also service and prep each unit before and after each rental. One thing i love about this big green is that it feels well made, I love the separate tanks making this even easier to clean and maintain....
If your looking for a well built machine that will perform much more than the regular rental brand, this is a machine i will recommend to anyone without any doubt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave2066 Amazing!
We own a spot bot for small messes our grandchildren and our dog leave. The only problem we had with it, was that it left clean spots when we used it. Since we cleaned with the Big Green our entire room is a clean spot. We have tried many carpet cleaning machines including rug doctor rentals. This Big Green out-cleaned them all and exceeded our expectations. We ran out of time to clean one room. There was a visible clean line between what we cleaned and what we didn't. It also left the carpet fairly dry. I would recommend this to everyone interested in a carpet cleaning machine. It's worth the price, particularly when you consider the cost of carpet. It also helps reduce problems with allergies.

I'm really impressed with Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine so far. I've used the supermarket rental machines for many, many years and have found the Bissell to be a better machine in many respects. Firstly I was impressed that it cleaned our master bedroom on one load of water/cleaner, did not saturated the carpet and actually cleaned the carpet really wel! So in a matter of hours the carpet was dry and the room usable, unlike the supermarket rentals which used 2x the liquids, over saturating the carpet and keeping it unusable for at least 24 hours. This Bissell is easy to maneuver (maybe slightly narrower than Rug Dr and a bit smaller/lighter.), easy to carry and store, and simply to use. So far so good. I will probably clean our carpets every 3-6 months and hope to get many years out of this unit. BTW, I like the industrial design based on a commercial machine where you can see the soapy water being vacuumed into the dirty water tank; there is a cleaner flow indicator which is easy to see and stops rotating when the cleaner tank is empty. The unit has a quality feel to it and seems to be well manufactured for residential use.
