"Very heavy for a portable cleaner" star star star star_border star_border Today whilst having to clean a pet stain. It was heavy to take upstairs. Emptying and cleaning was very fiddly the waste tank very stiff to open. Water from the clean tank dripped everywhere whilst trying to fill. This meant cleaning the bathroom floor. I had to carry the machine minus the two tanks back downstairs. It was time consuming fiddly and noisy. I bought this when there was no available alternative. Bissell have a handheld portable product sadly it’s only available in the USA it would suit my needs much better. Would I recommend this based on my experience no.
