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+++

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jen AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!
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 1 out of 5 by Shankss Doesn't dry, wet mess for carpet
My husband bought me this a few months ago from his work. I was super excited but soon realized the products suction was horrible. After cleaning my carpet at least 1/2 the solution is still left on the rug. I've used other carpet cleaners and never had this wet of carpet. What a waste of money

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jessnh83 Wonderful clearer
I have to say I am very pleased with the job this cleaner does. We have a large house with two of the floors being fully carpeted. I have previously rented the rug doctor from Kroger, and when I needed it again, I thought to myself "Why don't I just buy one so I can use it any time I want!". Plus the rental fees add up and soon, you could have purchased your own. I did a lot of research to find the right one and was skeptical that it would do the job, but I have been pleasantly surprised! I like the ease of the machine, very user friendly, well designed for comfortable use, very effective. I also really like the pro cleaner that is febreeze scented! If I had to say one thing I would change, it would be the size of the basins so that I don't have to change the water so frequently during use, but otherwise, 100% satisfied!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CRZANA I believe in BISSELL!!!!
I brought the lift-off deep cleaner and I had my doubts. It stayed in the box for a couple months and I was considering returning it , because I thought ,if it wasn't professional, nothing could clean a carpet. Well BISSELLi you proved me wrong. My carpets look great!!!! The only thing I would like to see, is a cord holder on the side of the handed. This will help prevent the cord getting caught by the rollers. Thxs again for building a great carpet cleaner!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barry Family Best Ever Deep Cleaner
Title says it all. It is amazing, from two toddlers, a dog, a cat, to three levels of house and when to gather them all in my car it's a nightmare only this deep cleaner can handle. I thought it was over priced, but now I see it's well worth every penny.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ReeDrakeford was in love, but it leaves dirty lint on the carpet
i purchased this cleaner about one year ago. It cleans great. I had my carpet professionally cleaned prior to purchasing this machine, and i must admit it cleaned it better than the pros. however it it leaves dirty lint balls all over the floor. I'm not sure of the cause but it is very frustrating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by hunterman 66E12 lift off VS a standard floor model.
I have owned a number of Bissel capet cleaners over the years so I feel I am pretty qualified to comment on this one I purchased and used for the first time today. A few things about this unit.
It holds more water than it's predesesors however it goes though it just as fast if not faster. This means it is putting down much more product in the same amount of space but on the otherhand, it also seems to do a much better job of sucking it back out of the carpet.
The cord is too short making it sort of a pain when it does not reach the same spots as my old one.
There is not spot treater nozzle built into the machine to squirt a bit of pure cleaner dorectly on a spot. The cleaner and water are placed in the same tank now.
The unit is much much taller than any of my other machines making it impossble to get under my tables and chairs as I used to be able to do.
The first thing the instructions say is move your furniture out of the way before starting. Now I know why.
I will probubly use the lift off feature in the future but if you are not dead set on it being able to use without the base, save some money and purchase the old style floor model.
That being said the new machines motor is much more powerfull than any of my old ones and sucked up dirt and gravel from my carpet that not even my Dyson will. Was very impressed with it's performance even given the short comings mentioned.
