Rated 1 out of 5 by Judy Not Happy
My vacuum has never worked properly. The dirt collects in the back of the floor piece and not carried up to the filter in the hand-held vac. I took it to be repaired and was told there was nothing that could be done. So, I will not be buying another Bissell products as I a very unhappy with this one.

I have always been satisfied with my Bissell products....BUT I wish this one was a little more powerful. Seems a bit whimpy on my slate and carpet.

Works Great for what I bought it for. I have 8 birds, 3 dogs and a cat that I have to clean up after every day, so it is great not to have have to bring out the vacuum cleaner daily.

Works great all over the house on hard floors, carpets and stairs. cordless and works for a long time without charging.
I have two other cordless machines but this out works both and takes up smaller space, I am so happy that I made a great purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mary73 This product is easy to use.
This little vac does what I purchased it for, cleaning kitchen, hardwood floors and especially under beds. Just wish it ran longer on a charge.

Rated 1 out of 5 by love86 I was expecting something better...
Bought this vacuum to clean my floors from dog hair. Suction is not that great, what is really frustrating is the fact that when I vacuum dog hair collects at the opening of the trash container and piles up against the filter, requiring that I take it apart every few min to move the hair from the opening. The space between the flap and the filter is so small that any dog hair that I vacuum gets trapped in that small opening. Very upsetting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jazzy11 Transitions well
I went into BB&B to buy a replacement for my upright Shark, which had finally died after many years. Wanted another, newer Shark, as I've used all types for many years. They had sold out of what they had, and weren't getting any in for awhile. The person who helped me told me about this Bissell, and said it had more power than the Shark. I'm not sure about that part, but I do like it very much. I love how it transitions from floor to rugs, and back again. Works awesome on those! Doesn't work as well on carpets, but still is good for quick pick up of birdseed & cat litter. (doesn't get down into the strands well) I like the fact of having the hand-held right there if needed too, and how easy it is to dump out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Monk65 Very Impressive!!
We live in a household with 2 cats, and one dog. All are "shedders", so fur/hair are always an issue. We've owned several rechargeable, cordless vacuums in recent years, but none compare to the Bissell (Pet 53Y81). And it's so light weight and maneuverable! We truly believe the reviews we read before buying it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Auntie kay This one is a WINNER!!
This light and maneuverable machine is so amazing. It is so easy to use and much stronger than its size would lead you to believe. I have two small dogs and two cats and hardwood floors. I use my BISSELL for everything; floors, sofa, and the detachable hand vacuum for anything and everything else. I would recommend it without reservation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grand-ma Barb Super plus dust/pet hair eater.
I was visiting my daughter in Illinois when my Grand-daughter started to vacuum the floors. I was amazed at how it scooted around without a cord. I asked her if I could try it and she said, Well of course Grand-ma. Well, that is all I needed to do. When I got home to Pennsylvania I just had to get one for myself, I have 2 dogs and 2 cats that shed and this product is just wonderful for those in between vacuuming jobs. I highly recommend this product..Keep on sweepin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kathy B Did more than expected!
After some minor home repair that resulted in a major mess of sawdust and small pieces of acoustical tile covering two rooms of carpeting I got out my "old vacuum", admittedly not a bissell, do a quick cleanup before last minute guests were to arrive. Of course, at that exact time the "old vacuum" decided to die! How in the world would I get this mess cleaned? As a last resort I thought I'd give my bissell stick a try. I was amazed how well it picked up everything, and I still had charge left when I finished the job. The "old vacuum" has been given an unceremonial burial and I will be using my bissell for ALL vacuuming needs from here on out!
Thank you for a superior product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sunny Perfect for my needs!
I purchased the Lift-off about a month ago and have been really happy with it. Living in Florida, we have both tile floors and low pile area rugs. It is light and maneuvers around corners easily. I can zip around the house quickly and effortlessly switching from floors to rug ("brush") settings. It has a well designed feature that allows me to get under tables easily. I love being able to see all the dust and cat hairs the vacuum has picked up and cleaning the filter is easy. Also, the hand-held unit detaches easily and is helpful for window sills and corners. Vacuuming without a cord is a definite plus, however, the charge only lasts about 20 minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mike Good product for the money
The Lift Off Floors Sweeper does exactly that. It works well on bare floors and tile floors and by using the brush attachment. The vac that detaches is good for hard to reach corners. The dust catcher has to be emptied after 2 or 3 uses if you have lots of pets. And the filter has to be cleaned often or changed to a new one. The filters are sold separately. Overall this sweeper does a good job; keep it recharged always and start with a clean dust catcher basket and it will do a good job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gramgem Very reliable machine
I was very worried if this is the kind of machine I could use because I am almost 81 years old (Sept) and do not have much strength in my hands but I must say I love this machine. It is easy to use and understand the workings, filter easy to clean and change (as I bought extra filters and when I wash one I don't have to wait till it dries as I put in a new one and put the wet one on the side till it dries.) Easy to use the hand part. Thanks again.

Vacuum is great for cat (and people) hair; easy to clean out the hand-held; but ... to clean the brush roll, I could undo 2 of the 3 phillips head screws, the third won't budge so this feature is lost to me.

I received this product about 7 month's ago (11/2012) and I couldn't be happier. My wife asked why I would buy this vacuum when our full size vacuum was working fine (also a Bissell). Well, now she uses this battery powered vacuum more than I do. It's great for quick clean ups around the house. So glad I bought this vac. and guess what? So is my wife. Also check out my review on the Garage Pro Vac. (18P01) It's another must have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bird lady The best ever!
I wish I had found this vacuum years ago. We have a Moluccan cockatoo and a blue/ gold macaw. Lots of feathers, dust from the cockatoo and food pellets. This little machine gobbles them up without a problem. It is also very quiet so the birds don't get upset. I love the feature of being able to slide it under their cages without difficulty. All on all, it is the greatest little machine. Oh, and it is light too! Don't hesitate in buying one! - One VERY satisfied customer!

I bought this vacuum because we have two dogs and hardwood floors. My Shark vacuum was getting old and needed to replace it. This vacuum has hardly any suction! It picks up dog hair but that is about it. When I vacuum up dirt with it and then turn it off, all the dirt falls back into the floor. I am so disappointed that bissell even sells such a product. I want to return it but can't find my receipt so I'm stuck with a product I will never use. One good thing though is that the battery lasts a long time.

Just got my new Bissell - it is great because the hand vacuum lifts off easily for stairs, cushions, etc. Have not used it long enough to know how long the charge lasts, but I was so pleased with mine, I gave each of our kids one for their pet hair issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by R2325 EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR!
I really needed a cordless vacuum to keep up with the hair my 2 dogs leave behind, and I was afraid I was never going to find one. I needed one that would pick up dirt and dog hair on area rugs and hardwood floor and reach underneath my furniture. This little vacuum does all of that and then some. The only drawback I can think of is that every once in a while it would be nice if it could run longer than 12 minutes...otherwise, it's perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CAORiley I love this product
I love this product. I have mainly hard flooring and a long haired kitty. It works wonders. The only down side I have with the product itself is that the battery life could be a little longer or make it where it can run off of a cord as well as cordless. You do have to keep the filter really clean but that isn't a problem for me as I clean it every time I use it. I love the swivel and the button that drops the handle to get under neath things. I like the lightness of it also. I have a regular Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Vac as well and it works great on carpet but not hard flooring and it is very heavy.
