Rated 5 out of 5 by jrbingham Love my vacuum
I live in a dusty climate and this product is perfect. The attachments are easy to use and with the longer hose they reach the ceilings easily. The pick up of dust and sand is great. Living on a dirt road has its down side but with this vacuum it makes it alot better! The tank is large, and removal is easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Newguy4599 Great value
As many other reviews mentioned, this is a heavier vacuum, but then again it is advertised as 'heavy duty', so you know what to expect. I wouldn't recommend this vacuum for an older person, but otherwise, it's very easy to maneuver. I ran it for about a half hour today, and boy oh boy does this thing do the work! I don't own pets, but it picked up 2 large handfuls of dust, and probably another handful of sand/grit. It is much quieter than the Hoover I got rid of, and sounds like it's really spinning the reel at high RPM. The key to this machine is getting the height adjustment correct. I left it on a higher setting, and it still managed to pull a TON of dust and grit from my carpet and 2 sofas. They advertise 'no loss of suction', and whoa do I believe it! I thought the hand brush tool was going to spin out of my hand, it's just so powerful. My biggest gripe with older vacuums is that it never felt like the drive motor was very powerful, and this thing is a beast. I've got a medium pile carpet, and the rotor never bogged down; very strong motor, from my first impression. Would definitely recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Larry It's a good one
I did quite a bit of research before buying the Bissell. I am very pleased with it and the accessories as well as how well it cleans. The only drawback is that it is heavy and that makes it difficult for my wife to use.

I love this vacuum. It really picks up the dog hair like no other. I was using a different brand before I bought this one. The other vacuum just wasn't picking up well after 98 days owning it. When I used this Bissell I could not believe how much "dirt/dog hair" that other vacuum left behind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Christi Love this Machine!!
OK I think this is better than the Dyson, Not Kidding! I just got rid of a Dyson and it was my second one. I am not impressed with the Dyson at all. They cost a lot and this one to me was Cheap, but I decided to save some money and buy it over going with another Dyson. People may think I am crazy, but the way I clean "Daily" and I am OCD about cleaning too. This Vacuum picks up more dirt than my Dyson ever did. I recommend it to anyone who wants a deep down clean. Its heavy I will admit that, but other than heavy it is a great machine!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarinaD 6yrs and still Sucking it up
I had 3 cats and 8 long haired med sized dogs in a country setting with lots of blowing dirt & dust in the SW. So I am very particular. I have had almost every brand but a R. No other brand will work for me but a Bissel. I highly recommend this unit. No problems with hair on the brush roll. Great suction. Long cord. Great machine. Yr 3 it needed a new belt, but it was serviced under warranty. The only drawback for me is the weight. Still works great, but now need something a tad lighter for my back.
