The Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution with Antibacterial Formula 1551 is Bissell’s outstanding addition to its line of consumer carpet cleaners. It is stylish, lightweight, and cleans very effectively.
Bissell has added some practical features such as a clean/dirty two-tank system, Express/Deep Clean cleaning modes, and a low profile for cleaning around furniture. These features separate this 2015 model from Bissell’s more traditional line of consumer-grade upright carpet cleaners.
The package comes with both the main unit, a hose with attachment, and trial bottles of cleaning formulas. It is suitable for cleaning homes, small and large areas, furniture, stairs and spots and stains. According to several users, this machine cleans really well and saves them the hassle to having to rent a machine from the grocery store.
This specific model, the ProHeat 2X Revolution 1551, is available through Walmart. It is the same as the Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution 1548 you may have seen on Amazon and other stores. The only difference is the color (yellowish for 1551 instead of orangey for 1548) and that the 1551 model has only one attachment tool-head instead of two.
Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution 1551 Features & Benefits
Two Cleaning Modes
The Bissell 1551 comes with an Express Clean Mode for fast clean-ups. According to Bissell, the Express Clean mode will allow carpets to dry in a hour. This saves users the hassle of having to wait around before they can step back on the carpet. When there is more time, users can use the Deep Cleaning Mode, which will perform a thorough deep clean on carpet threads and remove bad stains. According to its product listing description, the Bissell Proheat 2X Revolution 1551’s Deep Cleaning mode (using Bissell’s Professional formula) could clean even better than the leading rental machine.
The Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution 1551 comes with Heatwave technology. This helps to maintain the warm water temperature. Users can fill the clean water tank with warm tap water (up to 140°F). Note that there is no internal heating mechanism, but the machine works to keep the maintain the heat in the water. For a carpet cleaner with an actual built-in heater, consider the Bissell ProHeat 2X 1383.
This machine features Bissell’s proven DirtLifter® Powerbrushes technology. It has two brush rollers with 6 brush rows each (12 total). It’s well equipped to do some serious cleaning. In comparison, Bissell has more entry level machines with single rollers bearing a total of 4 or 6 brush rows.
Separate Clean/Dirty Water Tanks
Unlike most other Bissell consumer-grade cleaner models, the design of the ProHeat 2X Revolution 1551 has its clean and dirty water tanks as two separate tanks. Compared to the single “bladder within a tank” design, this is less awkward to use. A number of users were pleasantly surprised by this feature.
Lightweight/Low Profile Design
At under 18 lbs, this machine is lighter than the typical full-powered Bissell consumer-grade carpet cleaner like the Bissell DeepClean 17N4P. This makes it easy for home users to maneuver the machine around and perform their cleaning. It also has a low profile, so that it is easy to clean around furniture. The combination of a lightweight machine and an Express Clean mode makes the chore of carpet cleaning much easier for those times you just want to do a maintenance run.
The Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution 1551 comes packaged with a 8 oz trial size bottle of Bissell Deep Clean and Antibacterial formula.
There is a 3-year limited warranty for this machine. This is in the tier of Bissell’s best consumer-grade model warranty coverage of 3 years. It also compares well withand the industry average of 1 to 2 years.
This model is the same as the Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet 1548, except for minor cosmetic-level differences explained below. The Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution 1551 is a special edition of the Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution machine sold through Walmart. Carpet cleaning manufacturers often provide big retailers with a tailored version of their machines.
Compared with the Bissell 1551, the main differences appear to be that the Bissell 1548 comes in a different color and that Bissell 1548’s package includes an extra pet stain tool. Both models come packaged with the 8 oz trial size Antibacterial formula. This is based on the product listings provided, and could change with time, so please double-check before purchase.
