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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Terri Little Green Mean Machine
We've had ours for about 3 years and it's done a great job. I'm here to purchase a new non-motorized cleaning wand (we broke ours) and a new collection tank.
My only grumble is cleaning the collection tank. Some things just won't rinse out of it so dirt collects. For me, no matter what I use or how much I rinse the tank I can't get it clean. That's why I'm buying a new one. The old one is just gross and why chance the germs. In hind sight I recommend EVERYONE to RINSE OUT IMMEDIATELY AFTER USE very well.
I am so happy however that the replacement part prices are really reasonable! Often it costs more to buy parts than to buy a new on. Thanks for not being that way!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Llama mama Head sprays water sideways not on the spot.
Just purchased this machine from Target. I had the older smaller hand held. First time I used it the solution sprayed horizontally out of the head not forward on the spot. Is my head defective? Can this be foxed?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Harvey I love this product.
My wife wanted a new dinette set because the upholstery was dirty. I used the Little Green Machine and the set looks almost new again. I used this product on a pet stain that a professional carpet cleaner could not remove. After treating it with Bissell prespot and then using the machine, the pet stain is gone. This machine was purchased in January 2013 and has paid for itself tenfold.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Pat Works ok but......
Bought the bissell little green yesterday and went to town on some couches in our house. It did take out years of soil as the water in the tank was coming out brown and kinda gross. A few things i noticed though i'd like to pass on. First was the clean water tank was impossible to insert into the slot without water squirting out of it. As soon as you fill with water and detergent and screw the cap on, you cant turn it upside down to put in the machine without water coming out. Second is the Turbo brush i found useless. Spins way to slow. Third is the hose is much to short. 4-5 feet? cmon bissell. I had to hold the machine in my hand while trying to clean the upper parts of my couch, which your not supposed to do.? you have to. How would someone do a set of stairs with this without holding the machine? I found suction was not great either but ok. Also after cleaning, i ran Just hot water through to get all the detergent out, rinsed every tool with hot water and both containers, when i went to use it a few hours later the spray in the nozzle was already plugged. How after running a hole container of hot water through? It worked but im already anticipating problems in the future. To me the little green just seems very cheaply made and has design flaws. I wished i had done more research before purchasing this. It seems my complaints are nothing new to bissell. if you read the reviews, these complaints have been going on a LONG time. I wish manufactures would listen to customers and solve some of these problems for us, the consumers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NayNay Taking the BIG Upright back and getting this one
I just bought the Proheat Pet upright and assembled it. After just looking it at for a few days decided it was too big for what I really need it for. All of the reviews are very helpful, so I am taking the upright model back and getting the LGM. Just wish the LGM could use the turbo brush that is available for the upright models.
