" ...  From filling the soap and water dispensers, to emptying the dirty water tank, to cleaning the system after use, it is all so easy to maintain. ... Having the machine automatically dispense the soap and water when you push the cleaner forward, then extract the dirty water when you pull the machine back is easier than pushing switches back and forth.  ...  "

" ...  This carpet cleaner, which cleaned all of my carpets better than a cleaning service, just paid for itself again. ... I needed to clean our recliner loveseat and was not looking forward to it. ... The upholstery attachment was easy to install, the brush attachment was stiff enough to work through what appeared to be some sticky substance, while not harming the fabric.  ...  "

comment
" ...  After reading all the specs, features and reviews, I decided to buy it, and it was the best decision I made, it works amazingly well, I love the automatic cleaning solution dispenser, in the past with previous carpet cleaner, after I thought I was done cleaning, just to realized that I forgot to press the cleaning solution dispenser and I had to it all over and it was time consuming, it has long bristles so it really removes stains and leaves the carpet feeling soft and looking new.  ...  "
