It Sucks, but not in a good way.

Pros:Good brush scrubbing action, easy to fill and clean, light weight.

Cons:Vacuum is weak, poor fluid extraction, small cleaning solution capacity, manual sprayer.

The brush action on this unit is very good, but it doesn't support the inefficient vacuum suction and limited volume of the cleaning solution tank.

I was quite disappointed in the overall fluid removal function of this unit. I would expect at least 60 to 70 percent of the cleaning fluid would be sucked into the dirty water holding tank. I would say that the actual fluid return was only 15 percent or less.

This is too bad because the brushes do a great job of scrubbing the stain area. But after that, you are waisting your time trying to get the solution out of the carpet.

Of course the negative of this is that it leaves the carpet damp for a longer time frame, which means that the wet area may become soiled from foot traffic, both human and pet.

The cleaning solution reservoir is to small by at least half and the manual spray function is rather inadequate.

Save your money and go for a machine that is more robust. You may have to spend more for a worthy unit, but in the end, if it works well, it's worth it.
