The Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 Pet Pack is a powerful machine that comes with lots of extras and won’t break the bank. It’s commercial quality and perfect for home maintenance and offers excellent performance. Thoughtful features also help to elevate this above the competition, although there are certainly options out there that are both more powerful and more portable – so it will ultimately come down to your preference!
As soon as you get this out of the box, you’ll find that this is fairly large carpet cleaner if you have used any in the past. It’s big enough to offer good tank capacity and has a pull-down handle for pushing and pulling around. However, it’s not quite as large as some of the other units that can be hard to store. Partly this is thanks to its relatively narrow 12’’ depth.
But who is this product for? And does it do everything you would expect for the price?
In terms of performance this is a good device. It’s definitely powerful enough to deal with almost any marks that you might want to deal with on a standard basis and it will leave your carpets looking brighter and more colourful as though you just moved into a new show home.
If you’re looking for the absolute best of the best regarding performance, then there are more powerful models on the market. However, this is certainly no slouch and should be more than powerful enough for all but the most demanding situations – and you’ll pay a fair bit more for a top performer.
This product is ready to go straight out of the box which means all you need to do to start using it is fill up the tank. The large tank capacity at a very impressive gallon means that you can take a while doing this but then won’t have to keep returning to the sink. It’s also very easy to clean, and the hand tool is easy to attach and can significantly improve your reach.
Another useful pro that has been mentioned is that this unit doesn’t require a lot of detergents and a little will go a long way. If you’re looking for a product that will ultimately prove to be a good investment, then this is an important feature to look out for!
There are a couple of downsides, though. For starters the weight – this is one of the heaviest carpet cleaners we’ve reviewed at 50.3 pounds when empty. That wouldn’t be a problem for everyone, but if you then consider that the handle is relatively low (about 37’’ off the ground) and relatively flimsy, then you can see that this might become an issue in some scenarios. The cleaning head is quite small, and filling can also be fiddlier than for some products.
Inside the box, you’ll find you get a few different bits and pieces. Specifically, you get your carpet cleaner itself, an upholstery/stair tool, a 40-oz bottle of Pet Formula Carpet Cleaner and a 17-oz Urine Eliminator Trigger Spray. These things should ensure you’re kitted out to tackle most types of mess as you come across them.
Warranty & Support
The Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 comes with a great warranty with five years as standard and an additional three years available at $20 if you want to extend it. With 8 years warranty potentially, this should provide a good investment that will last a while. Warranty does not include normal wear and tear of the machine, though – only failure.
Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 Review
Warranty & Support
Overall, this is another good carpet cleaner that once again has a specific use-case scenario.
This is a big, heavy and powerful machine that is ideal for large homes. However, it’s important that you’re physically fit and willing to put in a little hard work. If you can do that, then you’ll get a machine that brings your carpets up beautifully, and that comes with lots of extras and a great warranty.
For this money, there are slightly more powerful machines out there, and if you’re looking for something that you can store and bring out easily, then you’ll want to look elsewhere. But for an effective clean for a large property, this gets a good recommendation.
