Rated 5 out of 5 by Sam K Purchasing this vacuum was one of my better ideas
This vacuum really cleans!! I could not believe what came out of my carpet when I first used it throughout the house. I have a long-haired cat and a dog so I vacuum 6 out of 7 days a week. I knew my vac was not doing a great job although I had just purchased it about 6 months ago. Because of Bissell's support of pet rescue organizations, I decided to try their product. The canister is easy to empty and clean so no more dirty bags either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michigan Lady LOVE THIS MACHINE!
I recently remodeled my home complete with new carpet and new bamboo flooring. The vacuum cleaner I had was doing okay, but wanted something that could pick up much better and would be able to sweep the hard wood floor with. Oh, and did I mention I also have 2 dogs and 8 cats? So something that would hold up to all that hair and dust was an absolute must. I saw this model at Lowe's, and the one thing that I really liked about it was being able to shut off the brushes for the hardwood floor. I looked at a few other models, including the one just above this one, (which btw is removable from the base, but I don't have stairs, couldn't see the need) and couldn't find anything near what this one was.
So, I brought it home. It was quite easy to put together, and I was sweeping with in in a matter of minutes. I was quite impressed as to how much dirt it pulled up in a short amount of time. I'm a little disappointed with how small the cup is that holds the dirt and the shortness of the hose, but, if it does the job over the long haul, I'm okay with it. My older carpets looked much better after sweeping with this machine, and it wasn't as incline to pull up threads of one of the carpets I have. Using it on my hardwood floor was easy. With the brushes shut off, no kickback of dirt or debris, and the glides on the bottom made it move effortlessly on the floor.
Next was the pet brush. Wow. I was impressed. It did take a bit of doing due to the amount of hair from my pets, but it did a fabulous job. I was very pleased with the performance of it. It varied with the amount of pressure because of the amount of hair and the curve of the furniture, but still a great job. Overall, I am ecstatic about this machine and would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kat Bissell knows how to make a vacuum!
We have had our old Bissell Momentum for several years and have loved it! Best vacuum but, just recently the only thing I noticed is that the pedal to lock the vacuum upright wasn't clicking in every time unless you put your foot underneath it to click it into place. Our old bag vacuum in the basement was done for, so we decided to put our Momentum down there and purchase a new one for upstairs. I looked at the reviews, we do have a pet and this looked like the perfect vacuum and it has not disappointed. It is powerful and quiet. It cleans very well and I love the ease of emptying it and the retractable cord. The price, excellent! I did not even consider or look at other brands. If you purchase this vacuum you will be very glad you did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WB Beardie Great vacuum with excellent suction
I have several Bissell vacuums. With a long-haired dog, the rollers get filled with hair but not with this vacuum. I rarely have to clean the brush! The suction is capable of pulling the long hair into the dust bin. This makes life a whole lot easier. Also, the retractable cord is very handy and reduces having to lasso the cord during vacuuming. Of course, the vacuum pulls out the carpet dirt well. Also, the design of the brush attachment is an engineering feat. It has a paddle which works so much better than a brush roller. The paddle is far more reliable at doing the job. I highly recommend this vacuum because of the features I have described.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bruce 57 Powerful and light.
We were looking for a vacuum to purchase as a gift for a family member. We saw the Complete Pet model and ordered one to try ourselves. The day before it arrived we vacuumed our entire house with our ten year old vacuum.
We always thought the old vacuum was doing a great job, but after vacuuming a five by five foot section of our family room with the Bissell yielded almost a half a tank full of dust and hair, it was obvious our old one just wasn't doing the job.
It was actually fun vacuuming the house and seeing all the dust and hair the new Bissell was picking up. Now that we've used it over the entire house a few times, we do the whole house and pick up just a fraction of what we got the first time. It's quiet and powerful. We liked it so much, we got one for Mom. People comment that our carpet looks new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BD Excellent vacuum cleaner!
Couldn't be happier with this vacuum. It does the job. I have 8 dogs and this vacuum picks up the dog hair with ease. I like how easy it is to empty the cannister. I also have a Bissell carpet cleaner. I would reccommend Bissell products to anyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by sherjoe41 Great Vacumn
I have only two complaints about this machine so I will get them out of the way first. First the on button is really low on the side of the machine which is just weird and un handy. Also this machine tends to tip over easily when using the wand. Ok so now that I have said what I don't like what I do like is that this machine cleans really well. I was amazed how much more dirt it picked up the very first time I used it. It is easy to empty and has really good suction. So if the first two things I mentioned don't bother you to much this is a really good machine to have. The price is right and the features are great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shpoots2002 Works great
This is a replacement to my 6-year old Bissell and I'm very pleased with this one. I like the off switch for the beater brush when I vacuum my hard floors. Even though it's light, it should have a handle to carry up/down the stairs like my old one did. I definitely recommend this model.
