    Bissell Little Green ProHeat

    Based on the reviews I read on here and Amazon, I decided to purchase the Bissell at Bed Bath Beyond. Used a 20% off coupon and got it for 80. Also bought the popular sport remover.

    Carpet After


    The suction on the unit is pretty subpar. I read it was descent but I thought it was very weak. The "hot" water wasnt very hot at all. Water out of the tap is much hotter.

    The scrubbers on the wand thingy arent very stiff at all. You must use another brush (which I did).

    I am not impressed with this unit. I feel some hot water, spot remover, and a shop vac perform much better than this unit.

    I will be returning this tomorrow

    If you want to do a GREAT job, then get a real extractor!!!!!!!

    Bissell Little Green ProHeat

    I've had this vac for a few months and it works well enough in my opinion. I agree the suction isn't great but let's face it, you get what you pay for. Also, did you put cold water in the tank? It says to put hot tap water in. I've had steam come off the carpet when I use it....

    Maybe your expectations were a little high for the price you paid? Just a thought...

    I bought and returned a Bissell recently as well. I found that the small extraction head fit on one of my shopvac accessory's. I bought the attachment on eBay for about $8 including shipping.

    As for the hot water, it just takes a few seconds for the hot water to get through the tubing... it gets hotter than I expected, but not worth $100 when I can put the extraction head on my shopvac for $8 and use my own brush.

    I think the unit is awesome. There's much better cleaning solutions out there than the bissel sample. Pre-treating is a must, then extract. Works great for me.
