Two-tank carpet cleaning with DirtLifter brushes, a flow indicator, and professional-quality results

For a professional-grade carpet cleaner, the Bissell 86T3/86T3Q Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine has the features to make up its name, including powerful DirtLifter PowerBrushes and a flow indicator that lets you know when its two tanks need to emptied or refilled. Add in extras like additional cleaning tools, and you have a cleaner that can transform your carpets.

DirtLifter PowerBrushes

The brushes on the Big Green are very impressive. They are made from very stiff bristles designed in a wave which then rotate, so dirt and grime is attacked from every angle. Once loosened with a combination of the PowerBrushes and water, the cleaner sucks everything up, leaving your carpets fresh and clean.

Separate clean/dirty water tanks

Having two tanks for clean and dirty water is more hygienic and more convenient to use than 1-tank systems. You fill the clean water tank, which holds almost 2 gallons, and use it in your cleaning routine. Once completed, you use the nozzle to suck up the dirty water, which is stored in the dirty water tank and emptied.

Flow indicator

One of the most convenient features on this carpet cleaner is the flow indicator, which lets you know when you need to check the tanks and solution levels. You’ll never have to worry about starting your carpet-cleaning only to run out of clean water halfway and have to disrupt your routine by refilling it, or having to stop completely and buy more detergent.


Included formula

When you get the the BISSELL Big Green, you get a 24-ounce bottle of BISSELL 2X Professional Deep Cleaning formula with it. You’re ready to start cleaning right away and will see superior results with the Bissell solution.

Adjustable handle

Thanks to the adjustable handle, using the cleaner is always comfortable. You can adjust it to your height so you never have to bend down or strain while pushing the carpet cleaner around.


For more versatile cleaning on upholstery and stairs, you get a 9-foot hose and a stair tool. You can clean your couches, arm chairs, rugs, and stairs as thoroughly as your carpets for a complete clean.



It weighs around 42 pounds. That’s pretty heavy for taking up and down stairs. Emptying out the tanks and refilling once you get to another floor is one way to help with the weight.


This carpet cleaner is not cheap. As a professional-grade machine, it comes with a higher price tag that just isn’t practical for a lot of people. However, it does offer superior cleaning results, so if you want to keep your carpets consistently pristine, this is the kind of long-lasting machine that will do it.

Overall Review

The DirtLifter PowerBrushes, included Bissell formula, and cleaning attachments are all more than able to tackle the hardest cleaning jobs.
