Rated 1 out of 5 by Clay Under whelmed, poor performance
Purchased based on reviews which seem to not represent his product. Poor suction, left carpet soaked requiring unto run fans to prevent mil dewing. Power brushes aren't - they only move based on friction against carpet and tend to sweep debris away from suction leading to a nasty slimy accumulation under the base of the unit behind the brushes. No easy way to remove and clean brushes or area under them. I would not recommend this unit and my wife wants to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DirtHater Excellent Product!
I recieved this deep cleaner a few weeks ago and have used it to clean about 900 sqft of carpet in my home. This has used almost all of the almost all of the 60 oz. 2x pet formula I purchased with the machine So for reference about 1 60 oz. bottle cleaner/1000sqft. Assembly was fast and simple. Operational instructions are also fast and simple. I followed manufacturer operating directions as close as possible, and spent a good deal of time on preping spots and highly soiled areas. I am really quite amazed at this machines performance! This cleaning is much better than I ever recieved from the professional steam cleaning companies, and the cleaning solution I used also includes scotchgaurding in the formula. This machine has already paid for itself in what I would have spent on the "pros" and a much, much better looking, feeling, and smelling result. I can't wait to try it on my suv's. Just very pleased with the overall performance and value so far. So here is what you know but don't want to hear....The process is slow and it is pretty hard work, but if you have the time and patience and are physically capable this machine will definitely reward your efforts! Thanks Bissell for a very functional, useful, and economical product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tracy28 Leaves the carpets soaked
At first it worked wonderfully. Now I have had it for approximately 4 months and I can't stand using it. It leaves the carpets soaked even after going over them multiple times to try to get extra water up. I have checked every filter and cleaned it out and nothing helps. Definitely would not recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tj2013 It was so easy to use!
It was so easy to use. It wasn't big and bulky like most cleaners. I liked the performance of the machine. It was also a quick and easy clean up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lindi Works great
This machine is brilliant! I've used it on carpets in upright mode, they look almost new now. I've used the lift-off machine for the sofa cushions, and they look and smell fantastic. I'm looking forward to spring, so I can get the car cleaned out. It's a little heavy, but my husband actually enjoys working with it, so I don't have to worry about the weight. I am so impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Duane Lift-Off deep cleaning system
Best one yet that I have purchase from Bissel. Think I got a good deal from Bissel on line after logging in. I do not have dogs but surrounded by huge Valley Oak trees. It cleans carpets extremely well. After shampoo I go over several times to remove excess water. Much of the carpet hair & dirt goes into the dirty tank, not as much on the brushes. Just had my carpets professional done 6 months ago but got a lot of dirt out. Have not used it in the portable mode but my wife is looking forward to using it on her car seats and carpets.
Cleaning is easy after removeing three screws over the top of the brushes

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gottahavemybissell Love the tools this cleaner offers, I could use it everywhere!
I have a 7 year with severe ADHD, along with 3 cats and 1 dog, lets just say My carpet see more action than it really should...lol
This cleaner is amazing, it cleans great and leave home smelling clean and fresh and looking New again. Love the portable feature because we have stairs, so I don't have to break my back and spend hours cleaning them. This machine makes that job so EASY! Also I could clean my area rugs, my car. I love this machine. We did our homework before purchasing and We were stuck between 2 models and So glad we choose this one!! This machine does it all! Thank you Bissell!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mommy of 3 kids and 2 pets Highly impressed
I am generally not a fan of store bought carpet cleaning systems as one of my friends owns a carpet cleaning company. However with 3 kids, a senior cat, and a new puppy, I can't call my friend every time the kids spill something or while I'm trying to potty train my puppy. I bought the Bissell Lift Off Deep Clean with little expectations. I figured something is better than nothing. To my surprise, I am HIGHLY impressed!! This thing made the carpets look amazing and it was super easy to use! It is a little heavy, but who cares! My carpets look amazing and I won't be embarrassed when I have unexpected company pop in! I LOVE that it has a portable tank too, so when the kids spill something I don't have to pull the whole thing out. It was simple to assemble. I do wish the clean water tank was a bit larger but in order to have the portable section, they had to keep it small. If you have kids and pets I highly recommend the pretreat . This machine is WELL WORTH the money!
