Rated 1 out of 5 by Ima This product needs improvement
There is no sucking power in this vacuum at all. Dust, dog hair get stuck in the brush and are not moved to the dirt container. I have to clean it inside out every time.
I am extremely disappointed. I love the bissell brand and had great success with most of them. but this one is a huge desappointement.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Manda great at first but stopped sucking
This vacuum was great at first! I was using it every day to do a quick sweep of my floors to keep my house clean. I would have to empty it about 2-3 times per use, but I didn't mind at all. Lately, the bin has not been filling up at all! I clean it every time I use it and I checked for a clog and cleaned out any dust and dirt from the bottom. It still isn't getting the dirt and hair from the floor into the bin. I am very disappointed. I loved this, but it stopped working after only a few weeks!

Rated 1 out of 5 by kozak65 Design and Durability Issues
The vacuum has plenty of power and does a great job picking up pet hair from the carpets and hardwoods. One feature I liked was the folding handle, which collapsed for easy reach under chairs and tables without having to stoop. However, the hinge mechanism is not durable, and now it doesn't remain in the straight position under normal use. It keeps folding under its own weight. I'm told that the newer model has been redesigned to fix this problem, but what about those of us who are left with the clearly poorly designed ones? The cost of the replacement part is almost as much as a new one. In my opinion, not worth it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chadydaddy It's a good vac!
It's convenient the way it's handle folds up for storage! And easily becomes a hand vac! Wish it had a power brush attachment when it becomes a hand vac! Anyway it's light weight and very handy! It's not the largest capacity vac but its easy to empty the bin! So I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SnKZabel Can't go wrong!
I ordered this about a week ago, and just got it in the mail. I charged it for 24 hours as instructed, and decided to try it today to clean up around a litter box. I didn't know what to expect while the reviews were good overall, it was a hit and miss with expectations for quite a few customers. I had the "as seen on tv" sweeper prior to this, and found it to be lacking. It just wouldn't pick things up. I had been thinking about getting a stick vacuum when all of a sudden the other quit working all together. I then decided I wanted to actually get a stick vacuum. A cordless one, but heavy enough to clean up the smaller jobs. Was I pleasantly surprised. It picked up litter and any small debris on the floor. Perfect for in between jobs of your bigger vacuum. This is my second Bissel product in my house, and I've never had a problem with them. My next product I'm sure will be an upright carpet cleaner.

We received this vacuum free when we ordered a carpet cleaner. It's very easy to use with no cords to worry about, (Only when it's being charged).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucy Lucifer Light weight & gets the edges
As a senior citizen it is perfect for keeping kitty litter sprinkles in bathroom cleaned up. Also makes swift work on my hardwood and kitchen floors. Easy to use daily, instead of getting out my heavy vacuum which I now use only for carpets. I've never had a vacuum that got the edges and corners so clean. And the cordless feature is awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beso I really like this one!
A friend of mine bought this one, and I decided to buy it too. Got it at the store where you can get the 20% off if you have the coupon...BB&B...., so it was a great price. I have a PUG, a shedding dog beyond belief. This cordless vac picks everything up off of the tile floors easily, the stick part collapses to get underneath chairs, it swivels and has two settings for floor or a brush setting for my one carpeted room. I can remove the dust buster part of it to use on the chairs, and it's easy to clean, which I do often because of all the dog shedding.... All in all, it is a great little cordless. Very happy to own it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shannon28 Perfect for every day use
I love this vacuum! I bought this vacuum after I adopted my Norwegian forest cat (he's a ball of furr) and his hair stuck to everything. Now cleaning my hard wood floors, tile and area rugs are a breeze. Its so light weight, glides from surface to surface and no hassel with cords. Its not loud like other vacuums and I've even managed to pass it over my cat once or twice when I'm getting his favorite spot ( back of the love seat). When Im done I dump it and give the filter a shake and collapse it to put it away. Thank you Bissell for such an affordable great product!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Shoppingmom3 Lousy Suction
We just adopted a dog and I used my old small vacuum that I love for my daily cleaning. With it plugging up all the time, I found it wasn't meant to pick up dog hair so I went looking for a vacuum that was. I purchased this vacuum and found it to be cheaply made with very little suction. I do like that you can turn the brush on and off but that's about it. The dirt collector is very small, the brush squeaks and I feel it's not doing the job. I'm returning this to the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Big Gene Great Vaccum for Quick Cleaning
This product replaced a product made by Black and Decker.
Its great for quick cleanups for dog hair and small dirt deposits, no power cords to haul out for the quick and easy cleanups, holds a large amount in its dirt filter compartment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scooter 1 Love my little Bissell!
Have two white haired dogs and dark hardwood floors, get my problem? Have two big vacuums, love them, however, when I see pet hair on the floor I go for my Bissell. Does a great job cleaning up the pet hair and leaf parts from our Maple trees we bring in, yes, it's that time of year again... Quick, lightweight, cleans up the entry rugs as well as the floors and so easy to clean after use. Am getting another one for our motorhome, it too will be a Bissell. I'm a "Bissell believer." Thanks for a great product!

Rated 2 out of 5 by RJ Lift Off Floors & More Pet 53Y81 is not a good product.
Poor product, suction is terrible. Returned it. Spend a few more bucks and by the 1189 model from Bissell. It is an excellent cyclonic stick vac. Also the model 1189 has great suction!

Rated 2 out of 5 by katiekinz Not good for long dog hair
I bought this stick vacuum specifically for dog hair and hair just seems to wrap around the bristles and its impossible to get all the hair out. the inside also gets clogged fairly easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PetLover Great vacuum
This is a perfect vacuum for a quick clean in and around litter boxes, dog beds, dog cages, bird cages and under furniture where pet hair gathers. If I were the engineer, the only thing I would change is give the option for a bagged model. I dislike touching any of that mess!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hana Not power full enough
This vacume is really light and easy to use especially for my hands because I have carpol tunnel! But it isn't power full enough. The battery dies after a few minutes and needs to be recharged again.

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.

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.
