Rated 1 out of 5 by Tracyjcat Battery issues
I loved this item when it was new. Good suction long battery life. After I put it away for a few weeks battery would not take a charge. It would not work even when plugged in. It now sits in the corner dead.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tracyjcat Worked good first time
I have had my cleaner for only a few short months. The first few time I used it was great. I put it away for a few weeks and tried to use it again and it wont recharge. I cant even use it while its plugged in. I have e mailed Bissell 2 times about my product and got no answer back. When you e mail they promise response in a day. I guess dont bother with the poduct or the e mail. Disappointed because I went with the Bissell brand name.

I got this and was happy to try it out, then when I realized it had to be charged for 12 hours before use and a waste of my whole weekend. I finally got it charged and it had no power or suction at all and wouldn't even pick up any of the solution, the power was so low.. I don't know why they just didn't have a power cord. The brush kept falling off over and over and didn't sit in there firmly. It was kinda a bulky machine and hard to hold. I was so annoyed that I practically wasted two days with this and It also didn't get the job done. I just took it back because it defiantly didn't work right. Too much money for not even working right for a bad creation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clean up Crew Ordering another one.
Today I am on this site to order another Spot Lifter 2X. Mine is six years old and has finally worn out. It has been with me to indoor potty train three Daschund puppies and it has preformed far better than anyone could expect. I have read the reviews and could only wonder how it was being used and what it was being used for in the negative reviews. Thank you Bissel for a product that actually works and works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by flo Great little cleaner
I bought this about two years ago and it is still going strong. This is perfect for when you have spots and stains and don't want to lug out the heavy cleaner. The Bissell Little Green formula that I use with it is also great. It got out deeply embedded feces stains in my carpet that my cat left where I thought I would have to call a professional. You do have to scrub quite a bit but it is well worth it. Recommend especially for pet owners who have pets that have 'accidents'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary53 Nice little machine!
This was great! I did end up giving it to my daughter, though. It was not enough to keep up with my 3 old dogs. So, I ordered a more powerful one that plugged in so that it worked longer. This one is awesome, but you have to complete the clean up in 15 minutes. That's enough for most problems!

Works well for a short amount of time. I love it for small spills or anything to do with clean up with my two cats. Good product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cindy Hate
Would be nice if a woman designed this type of thing. Too large for a woman's hand to remove the uptake take. Too large a distance to press the release button AND push the tank forward at the same time to be able to remove the dirty water tank. Hate it. Excuse me while I go get my neighbor to get this stupid thing apart.

I bought this for pet accidents and have used it twice already and it is wonderful. Does a great job and carpet looked like new. Easy to work too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by disappointed Dan looses suction quickly, replace often
This is the 4th Spot Lifter I've had. I was hoping the Spot Lifter 2X would be better than the previous Spot Lifter, and it was slightly more powerful. The biggest problem is that the rechargeable battery burns out quickly and Bissell doesn't offer a replacement. It seems silly that I keep buying a new one every other year, but I really like the compact portable size. For the $200 ($50 X 4 units) I've spent on this rechargeable unit, I don't think it's very cost effective. There are some compact deep cleaners available that plug in, and I'm definitely going that route this time. They are bigger and take up more storage space, but hopefully, I will be able to complete a spot clean up without running out of charge half way through (15 minutes, yeah, right, I've never gotten more than 2 brand new) and hopefully it will last more than a year or two. I wouldn't recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dottie GREAT PRODUCT
I am extremely happy with my Bissel spot remover. It is great for cleaning up pet accidents, and without a cord it is great for cleaning my carpeted stairs. I recommend it highly for anyone with pets and of course also with children to get up those accidents before a stain occurs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by me2136 Question on cleaning near baseboards
I used this first time today. Everything worked well except when trying to remove pet stain near wall. The design keeps the brush too far back to get stains near baseboard. Maybe there is a way...but I tried several different ways.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Greg Poorly Designed Solution Tank
The Spot Lifter 2X cleans small carpet stains and works well on pets stains. The pet stain solution works very well. The solution tank is poorly designed and can not be placed on a sink or counter, as it will fall over. The Spot Lifter 2X is made in China.

Product is just what I need - to help clean up after two older dogs who have accidents. The unit has held the charge for over two weeks and is still going strong.
Definitely recommend for quick easy clean ups.

I am so disappointed in this product. The button for the spray is the same as the button to Disconnect the receptacle. Guess what happens? Also, you must keep it constantly charged. Does not hold a charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Evie1205 Perfect For Spot Cleaning
This is the perfect product for spot cleaning carpets. I have a cat that has been sick and can't always make it to the litter box. My only complaint is that it doesn't come with a wall holder. Instead I have it sitting on the floor.

I was quite reluctant about trying the Spot Lifter even after many good reviews. I must say that it really does do a great job, even for very nasty spots...........

Have used for household spills of all kinds on carpets and tiled flooring. Couldn't have done without while training my puppy with her tummy upsets and accidents.
Have to get another as accidentally caused a burn out.

I have an 8 month old...I also have a weiner dog who refuses to be potty trained so the Spotlifter has been a godsend. It's quick and super efficient. And the price is unbeatable bissel makes a great quality product. Next buy will be a full-size deep carpet cleaner as I'm sure my 8 (soon to be 9) month old will be making plenty of messes of her own!

Worked too well. Had a little problem getting brush mark from carpet. Maybe softer bristle or less time would be better. Otherwise it took care of the problem and very handy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Eva27 Not as good as the other spotlifter
I am having a hard time getting mine to spray I seem to have to unclog it every time and even then the new way you have the pump simply doesn't work and priming it doesn't seem to last.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RP Works Great for about a year...till the battery no longer holds a charge.
This product works really well, but the availability and cost for a replacement battery makes it a disposable product after a relatively short period. The device should have an option for an electrical chord, making this a much more sustainable product worth 5 stars out of 5, indeed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by djkauf A reasonably good cleaner
The spot lifter works fairly well, but it appears to be, in part, a spot mover. It picks up most of the spot, but some of the dirt appears to be redeposited.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chris3110 Works as advertised.
This is the first review I have written for any product as most other products are junk or disappoint. I don't have any affiliation with Bissell but I can tell you that it is quite refreshing to purchase a product and it performs the job it is intended to do. It just works. The sprayer sprays cleaner on spots and the vacuum feature sucks the spots up. I have two small children and use the product every day. Two complaints: 1) you have to hold the cleaner liquid vessel to fill it. 2) the dirty water holding tank is small and can't be cleaned easily. Regardless, the product works as advertised so these two minor flaws are insignificant but annoying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Joann This is a great product for pet clean up!
I love this Spotlifter for the convenience of quick cleaning! Emptying the tank is a little difficult for
me; however I am assuming this is because it is new. It is better than bringing out the large rug cleaner that I also have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Foster Mom Works like a charm.
I foster dogs for a rescue and accidents always happen when a new dog comes in. I am impressed with the Spot Lifter's power. It sucks up any liquid and then I can hit the spot with an enzyme spray and all is good. I am very pleased with my purchase.
(Save lives by adopting rescue dogs.)
