It is difficult choosing between two carpet cleaners like the Hoover Carpet Basics Power Scrub Deluxe and the Bissell Big Green. They are both highly acclaimed in the market, come from two of the best carpet cleaner brands today and worth each penny they are sold for.
However they also have their individual share of pros and cons which make choosing the better unit between the two even more difficult. If you need some help in making your choice, here is a comparative analysis between both carpet cleaners.
The Bissell Big Green has a single, 1.75 gallon capacity water tank which lets you do a lot more cleaning before refilling it. The disadvantage here is as there’s only one tank, so there’s no sucking of dirty water which in turn means the carpet takes longer to dry. Moreover, a large water tank leads to increased weight which may in turn reduce the machine’s maneuverability while working.
On the contrary, the Hoover Carpet Basics power Scrub has two separate tanks for clean and dirty water. Though they may be smaller in size, you can fill or empty the tank as desired. And as water is suctioned out of the carpet after cleaning, the carpet dries up faster. The convenience of cleaning with separate water tanks makes the Hoover FH50150 a better buy.
As mentioned above, the Bissell Big Green is much heavier of the two at 42 pounds. It’s attributed mainly to its large capacity water tank and the amount of water it carries when full. The Hoover FH50150 is the much lighter winner at only 18.2 pounds, affording better maneuverability while cleaning!
The Bissell Big Green wins here as its power cord is 25 feet long while the Hoover FH50150 has a 20 feet long power cord. The added length of the Bissell Big Green makes it handier at cleaning large spaces, tight corners and various rooms of your house.
The Bissell Big Green cleans a spot twice by moving in two directions in a single pass. This helps quickly clean stubborn stains requiring multiple passes as the double-stroke uses less time than a single-direction pass.
While the Hoover FH50150 uses a single-direction pass cleaning method, its SpinScrub technology gives a 360 degree deep, gentle clean. Along with its DualV nozzle, various accessories, automatic detergent mixing, rinse option and forced heated cleaning features it not only removes stubborn stains but also shortens the carpet’s drying time. So the Hoover FH50150 wins here.
While the Bissell Big Green offers a 5 year warranty, the Hoover FH50150 has only a 2 year warranty, making Bissell the clear winner!
Comparing between the Hoover FH50150 Power Scrub Deluxe carpet cleaner and the Bissell Big Green is thus rather difficult. While the Bissell Big Green gives a longer warranty and has a longer power cord and has a larger water tank which lets you clean moor without frequent tank refilling, the Hoover cleans better, is lighter in weight and has two separate water tanks. You need to choose based on your budget, and your cleaning priorities!
