The Big Green® Machine Professional Carpet Cleaner is Bissell’s number one bestseller for upright, full-size carpet cleaners. This model is the first choice many for American households when dealing with high traffic carpets and who requires professional cleaning results.

While many people rent it, if you have a lot of cleaning to do, it’s more cost-effective to purchase your own — especially if you are thinking of starting a professional cleaning business or have a location that gets a lot of foot traffic.

Unlike other upright carpet cleaners, Bissell Big Green has been renowned for its robust performance. This model has a generous water tank (1.75 Gallons) and it also uses the strongest motor (12 amps) to generate more scrubbing and suction power. Besides, it has a very long hose ( 9 ft.) for you to clean stairs, upholstery, and stain easily.

While it is very weighty (40.6 lbs.), Bissell Big Green 86T3 is supported by 2 big carpet-friendly wheels for maneuvering around. If you are still hesitating on choosing this unit as the main carpet cleaner for your home, you can try to rent it at Bissell rental shops (which will cost about $35 per day).

How to Use the BISSELL Big Green® Machine Professional Carpet Cleaner

Recommendation – Should you buy Bissell Big Green 86T3

Bissell Big Green 86T3 is definitely a high quality carpet cleaner, it is the best solution if you are constantly dealing with heavy traffic carpets, old stains and spacious places. Besides, you should notice the weight of the machine (around 40 lbs) before buying.

If you need a lightweight model for general uses, Bissell Proheat 2X 1986 or Hoover Powerscrub Elite FH50251PC can be better alternatives. Or for spot cleaning then the Bissell Little Green ProHeat is the way to go.
