Summary: I had another machine(started with H) and I thought it did a good job until I got this Bissel and did spots I had just done with the other machine. Wow, what a better cleaning machine this is.
Summary: Cleans very well. As other reviews have said, if you have pets, the vacuum cleaner picks up clumps of hair and deposits them back on carpet when pushing vacuum forward in wash/clean mode. I just picked them up and carried on as I am so happy with the overall cleaning power of vacuum. I also noticed if you have a particularly dirty carpet and pause in cleaning mode, dirty water may "spit-up " on carpet.
Cons: Doesn't get the water up from rugs very well and is poorly constructed the cleaning dispenser is broken, The area that vacuums the dirty water is very hard to clean poorly designed, the unit at its best has never suctioned fluids well and is noisy rather than fix it again I'm writing it off as a loss and buying something else
Summary: Chose because of listed ratings. Can not rate durability after only one use, but appears to be of good quality materials. Easily assembled with good directions. easy to use and clean up afterwards.
Summary: I've used it twice so far and it does a much better job than those supemarket rental machines it has a lot of additional onboard accessories that are useful for specific tasks.It's a little heavier than I expected and noisier.
Summary: Cleaned carpets very well, but stair cleaning attachment is poorly designed and useless. Used large upholstery attachment for stairs and was satisfied with it. Didn't rate durability since I just purchased it and have only used it over the course of one week. Would strongly recommend you read and follow instructions carefully so that you understand how water tank is put together!
