It feels pretty heavy in the handle which I wasn't expecting and if you have a bad back as I do this machine will definitely put a strain on it and after doing our 30 foot hallway I was feeling the weight in my lower back for sure.

I really connected with the online instructional how-to video option. It did a great job and left my carpet refreshed and looking good!

While they didn't remove these completely, they did lighten the stains up significantly, which made me very happy.
