i bought the bissell proheat2x..i think that's the name. i love it! its a little heavy for me (CTS), but thankfully, i don't have to use it more than once a year. it has a brush attachment, and a hard-floor attachment, as well. not hard to load and rinse, reload (water/cleaner) at all. i always take the brush/attachments/plastic thingys off after use and rinse them well to get rid of all the hair, dirt/debris and let them air dry before putting it back together. 5 screws to unscrew to clean it, that's it. love it!
(i asked this same question on CM before i bought it! LOL. i also did consumer reports/reviews on about 10 brands/types.)
