Rated 4 out of 5 by dog lady GOOD, BUT . . .
I have this unit as backup for the big unit. I like it because it does a good job for small clean-ups. Like the big unit, it takes me longer to clean after use, than cleaning up the original spot.
There's got to be a better way!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Stacy Not sure yet
I am not sure what I think yet. I might just be using it incorrectly so these may be more questions than reviews. First the sideways spray seems to shoot quite far and hits my furniture near where I am cleaning the carpet? Is that suppose to happen? It seems to be hard to actually hit the stain? Second I have burbur carpets and it seems to be hard to get the water out since there is no give to the brush... Like it cannot suction down tight enough to get all the water out. My suction did not seem to be very strong at all compared to what other people are saying?? Could it be that I have a faulty unit? When I put my hand under it the suction is there but not strong at all.... I have to press really hard down on my carpet and I am worried I am going to ruin my carpet but I needed to get the water out. Plus it did not take out something as simple as spaghetti ?? Any ideas??

After 25 years our first Little Geen Machine quit. My wife loved that machine so much I instantly bought her a new one. After the first time she used the new one she fell in love with it too. A Great product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by amanda42 Great results but parts should be cleanable
I had an older model of the Little Green and loved it. It was the only appliance ever that I would go out of my way to tell my friends to get.
I eventually needed to replace and bought the 1400B. It cleans just as wonderfully, but the area just under the clear window on the cleaning tool very quickly collected trapped pet fur and debris. You cannot remove the window, so the dirt must remain. The waste tank also does not allow you to open it for cleaning and can, even with rinsing after use, collect debris. It is hard to feel that the unit is doing a good job when I take it out to use and it looks dirty.
It's unfortunate that such an amazing cleaning product should seem less fantastic than it is because you cannot keep it clean. Sadly, I would purchase a competitor's model if the parts were cleanable, even if it was less robust and I had to replace it more often.
Regarding replies to similar posts recommending replacing dirty parts, I feel that replacement is a solution for parts that are broken. Parts that come into contact with dirt as part of their job should be cleanable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Khask After several uses it leaks from the bottom...
I have had this for about 3 years now and have used it probably a dozen or more times. The last time I used it it leaked out the bottom and lacked suction. I'm not sure where or how it is leaking but it doesn't make for a very pleasant experience when your trying to clean up a mess and end up with a bigger one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rev. Dennis My third "Little Green Machine" for "Mom"
Tonight I am ordering my third "Little Green Machine. I have read all of the reviews, and thanks to your website, I have learned how to deal with previous problems other folks have mentioned. The hose has cracked right at the body; I've duct-taped it for the last time. I have six house cats and one dog; the usual nieces and nephews; but here's a problem I have not seen mentioned: I've had seven-years with my Mom who has Alzheimer’s Disease, and God bless her, there are "accidents". The "Little Green Machine" is the solution for this! Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MountainMama Love the machine, wish the collection tank was easier to clean
I have had this for 5 or more years, 3 small dogs and carpet...works great! The only thing I wish the collection tank was easier to clean. After these 5+ years I finally purchased a new collection tank and a back up one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MerFont12 Fantastic!!!
We bought the Little Green about 3 years ago and whenever it is needed it works really really well. We couldn't be more pleased with the product! We have a young child at home, and soon will be getting a puppy. So this machine might be working overtime!!! I have told many people to invest in this product. My father being one of them and he is pleased as well.
