Which one cleans better? The Bissell Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine 86T3/86T3Q or the Rug Doctor Mighty Pro? It appears that most users claim a better experience with the Bissell Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine. You may want to check out this side by side comparison in the video below. We’ve included additional notes below.
You can see that the Bissell Big Green 86T3/86T3Q did a better job cleaning the old carpeting. Some viewers accused the testers of not operating the Rug Doctor properly. That’s not true. The Rug Doctor machine only scrubs and cleans when you pull it backward. The official manual asks users to tilt the machine and push it forward, then pull it backwards for cleaning strokes.
Thus, the Bissell Big Green 86T3/86T3Q has a natural advantage because of the way it is designed to operate – you can when going back and forth. Note that the Bissell Big Green Deep Cleaner is a more modern carpet cleaning machine model, whereas the Rug Doctor is based off a more classic design that has been around for a long time.
