Rated 5 out of 5 by Cassie O.M.G. TOTALLY EPIC!!!!!!
Let me start by saying I was skeptical at first even though I read the great reviews. Well skepticism has left the building!!! I have a 17 year old carpet that is so beastly you would have to pay me a million dollars to walk barefoot on it. Well today is payday; my carpet looks so good I just can't believe my eyes. My whole town house is carpet except for the kitchen, wash room and bathrooms. It was so bad I never turned on the lights at night because I was afraid to look at my carpet. It really is a ecru color and not brown! The amount of dirt and black particles it pulled from the carpet was incredible. It even left the carpet fluffy, smelling great and looking brand spanking new. Old pepsi cola stains gone! Make-up stains gone! Urine stains from the dog gone! Weird smell gone! Old food spills gone! Unappealing appearance gone! Bissell let me tell ya, you had me the moment I turned the machine on. Easy assembly, easy use and worth money hard earned money. The only thing I would recommend is adding a side rotating bristle(s). This will allow you to get in between the crevices where the carpet meets the wall so the dirt that gets pushed to the wall can also be cleaned up. A+++

My husband and I finally broke down and bought a carpet cleaning machine after researching for a few months and I have to say that this cleaner has far surpassed my expectations with how quickly and effectively it has cleaned my carpet. My carpet is 7-8 years old and I had never deep-cleaned it (I know, really gross) and I just can't get over how much better it looks. It practically looks and feels like new again. I love that the unit keeps the clean solution hot while you work and that the dirty water tank is twice the size as the clean tank so you only have to dump it every other fill-up. The clean tank is small, but not any smaller than I had expected and I was still able to get a good deal cleaned before I had to refill. I have frieze carpeting, so I did a couple extra sweeps to make sure I had all the water pulled up and found that it wasn't really necessary to do that after some experimenting. Also, I am recovering from 2 back surgeries (7 months ago) and have not had any trouble maneuvering the machine around, cleaning, or emptying/filling the tanks. That alone has made this purchase worth every penny we paid for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Erineyes51 Best Carpet Cleaner EVER !!!
I purchased this machine to replace a steam cleaner I had used for years. That machine was just not cleaning like it used to. I have a few area rugs and a large den that is completely carpeted with a commercial grade carpet. I thought that I would have to replace all of the rugs due not only age but that I could not get them clean anymore with my steam machine. The area rugs are a light berber. I decided to take a change on this machine since the reviews were great. OMG my carpets all look like brand new. I do have 2 large dogs and even their hair was removed from the carpets. The cleaner came with a sample size bottle which had Scotch Guard in it. Now my house is clean, smells fresh and I have Scotch Guarded the carpets all in one easy step. I do wonder why the detergent/water dispenser was 1/2 the size of the dirty water container. So it required adding before the other was full. But if that is the only thing I am super happy.

After looking and using many different household carpet cleaning equipment....I finally found this very easy to use cleaner. The easy to use clean and dirty compartments keep things clean and tidy. Not like that "double bladder" clean and dirty box. The clean up is awesome. Three screws to clean brushes and tanks are separate as to keep water off vac and pump motors! Oh ...carpets came out great..my 110# Yellow Lab even loves it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rocki1130 VERY happy
I research things before I buy them. I researched reviews of all types of machines. I had a price limit I would spend. I decided that I wanted a lift-off for the upholstery and stairs and spots. Then I decided that I wanted attachments for doing all those items. I have a dog and cat, but am very clean. But...I have a dog and cat and I am human. I AM THRILLED! I have now used this machine on carpet, rugs, and upholstery that hadn't been shampooed in years, pet stains, dirt and red wine stains (I manually worked on the red wine stains first). EVERYTHING looks great! My rugs and upholstery which are over 10 years old look bright and vibrant again. My carpet with the stains look almost spotless. And it is really light weight. I have shampooed carpets after a long day at work. I am extremely happy. I really give this machine a 4.5.
The cons: it's a little leaky, so you need towels to wipe up. The lift off containers are small, so you need to refill often for doing large spaces, however, it's easier to lift. It's plastic so it seems a bit cheap, but that is how everything is built now. FYI, the machine and attachments leak when the FILL container is just close to full. Once you know the quirkiness #not much), it works great.
P.S. Go to Kohls and get the shampoo solution when you have a 30% off coupon! Best deal.

Our first one died and then we started looking at which one to purchase and decided on the lift-off because of our pet and the stairs in our house and I LOVE it. Picks up alot better than our old of 12 years. Also love the oxy products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ms.tanyac Disappointed
I was so excited to have found a product that seemingly would fulfill the needs of my household. Yes the tanks are smaller than 1 Gal., I am okay with that. Unfortunately, I found the suction is not even close to decent. I came to this site to troubleshoot and followed every possible suggestion. None worked! I can deal with the smaller tanks, but leaving so much dirty water behind is not something I care for. I will be returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RuthandMike03 Our upright deep cleaning carpet cleaner is wonderful.
I bought this machine as one of my wife's Christmas presents. We used it for the first time last week. It was so easy to use and did a tremendous job. Our home and carpet is 11 years old and this is the first time we have shampooed the carpet. And , what a difference. It looks so good . Even though we vacuum nearly every day. The carpet looks new again. If we could just get our bird not to make such a mess. We believe every person who has carpets should have this machine.
