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 3 out of 5 by Holly41 Nothing is perfect
Just bought this machine Friday. It is easy to handle, but the hose keeps falling off and the crevice cleaner doesn't work as well as I expected. I've cleaned two rooms and two area rugs that came out very good.
Had to refer to the manual why the liquid did not spray...the tank has to seat properly.
An attachment that would clean around the baseboard would be great...that's where the dirt collects and hard to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grandmato2 A must for all pet owners
I have 3 cats and 2 dogs living with me. One of my cats is a 16 year old who has recently become incontinent. After using the rug doctor and its line of products for quite a while, last year I bought the Bissell Lift-Off. I always used the Rug Doctor products with my Bissell, but last night I used the sample rug cleaner that came with it. What a life saver (not to mention a rug saver)!. Not only will I never use the Rug Doctor again, I will never use their cleaning products. Definitely worth the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mugzee GREAT
I had to buy my machine at Lowes as Bissell had none in their warehouse but the higher price I paid was well worth the extra money as I cleaned the 5 big rooms in our house and the floor was really like new and dried within one hour! This machine puts my old bissell to shame and Bissell is going comp me two bottles of their soap as comp. for the trouble I had in finding the machine as it must one popular machine ( as it is )!
Thank you Bissell
May "God" Bless

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lisa Very disappointed with this shampooer
We had a great Bissell shampooer that finally quite working. We really thought we would be making an upgrade with this shampooer, but we were very wrong. Our experience was very disappointing. The shampooer is loud, leaves to much water on the carpet, has two very small reserve tanks, so you will have to make lots of trips to dump and refill. Our old Bissell was so much better and cleaned our carpets better as well.
The lift off canister is easy to use and cleans well. It seem to pick up way more water than it does in the up right position.
