Rated 5 out of 5 by john972 Fantastic vacuum! Well worth the money! Cleans great!
I am disabled and use a power chair for getting around. I also have a dog, with short hair, who is constantly shedding. I take him for several long walks every day, with my power chair, so tend to drag a lot of dirt into my apartment. When I got the vacuum, it was very easy to put together. It has a nice long cord and I can plug it into my kitchen and am able to vacuum my small apartment. When I vacuumed my bedroom first, I was a little disappointed, because it did not seem to pick up much dirt. It did pick up a lot of dog hair though. When I went into the kitchen, to get to the living room, realized it was set on high carpet and I have low level loop carpet. It has 3 settings, high carpet, low carpet and bare floors. Once I set it on the low carpet setting and began vacuuming the living room, I was blown away! It was interesting watching the cyclonic action swirling around and listening to the sand continually being sucked up. It didn't take long and I was done and I could not believe how much sand it had gotten out of the carpet! There had to be a good 2 cups of sand and a lot of my dog's short hair and I only did an area about 4' x 10'. Was very easy to dump the dirt canister. The only thing I was surprised about, was it is not light. Either I am not very strong or it is quite heavy, so it does give you a little bit of a workout, but it is well worth it! I am assuming it contains more metal, to make it more durable and not so much lightweight plastic. I used the hose for the first time today, but not sure about it. It is a different type of hose than most vacuums and it will stretch out quite a bit, but then it pulls back so hard you have to hold the vacuum or it will tip over. I don't really need the hose and it stores nice on the vacuum, along with all of the attachments. I had an inexpensive vacuum, which lasted 20 years and did a decent job. It was lightweight, until the bag filled with dirt, then it was heavy. It gave me a lot of wear, but bit the dust, when I first moved to my current apartment 2 years ago. Have been trying to get by with a couple vacuums, which did not do a very good job. The other thing I liked was it is not near as noisy as most vacuums. I originally was going to purchase a Bissell "steam" cleaner, which I have done and also decided to buy a vacuum, from Bissell. I had a fantastic experience with a Bissell "steam" cleaner several years ago, which is why I went on the Bissell web site to purchase another one. While on their site I decided to buy a Bissell vacuum also. The "steam" cleaner sprays hot tap water, with the cleaning solution, into the carpet, scrubs it, then sucks it out, with all of the dirt. I was very satisfied with it, cleaned a lot of carpets, with it and even loaned it to a couple friends, to use. I was very impressed with it, which is why I wanted to stick to Bissell. Unfortunately the fan, which circulates the cleaner, froze up and the belt began to burn. I tried to fix it, but was in a hurry, because I was moving, so it is sitting in my storage now. I haven't tried the new Bissell cleaner yet, but am sure I will love it like the other one I had bought.

Easy to assemble. Excellent suction. One pass does it all. Only complaint, the brush does not stay on. Definitely 5 star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mom of 3 boys Still lovin' it!
I won this vacuum in a contest from Bissell. I had a working upright that died 2 days before this arrived. I have 3 young boys so I normally vacuum my house at least once a week, so I was excited to try this. I quickly tested my living room carpet (which is only used for guests) and I couldn't believe the dirt it picked up. I thought my old vacuum was getting it, it looked clean. Then I got to the family areas. Amazed again! I had to stop and empty the container. The container is also my boys new best buddy! Any small toy pieces (lego, k'nex, etc) are now no longer lost. We can fish them out when we dump the container. This gets everything on the first pass. It's light and easy to use on carpet, hardwood floors, and even stairs. I have only one issue - the cord isn't very long. I can only get one room done, stop and unplug, then re-plug in another room. I was able to get 2 rooms with my old vacuum. I can overlook that with this new cleaning power. I'm now confident that I have clean carpets!
