Rated 1 out of 5 by Es9196 Terrible vacuum
The reviews on this seemed good, so I bought one. I had to replace a 10 year old sweeper vac that was wearing out. I use this mostly for quick pickup on hard surfaces - kitty litter and crumbs from kids eating. The vacuum does pick up quite a bit, but once you shut it off, a bunch of what you picked up falls right back out onto the floor. I empty the container each time I vacuum and keep the filter cleaned off, but it still doesn't help. If the little purple part at the head of the handheld section is supposed to be a crevice tool, I wouldn't know because I have never been able to pry it out to extend it. If it isn't a crevice tool, I have no idea what useful purpose it serves. It also tends to be difficult to remove the handheld section from the upright body. All around I wish I had never bought this vacuum.

I love this cordless and handheld vacuum combo. It is perfect for my needs as my space is small. I use it in my 36' Travel Trailer. I have a mini-Aussie and cats, I am a senior, and disabled so I needed a lightweight vacuum that could pick up the hair on both carpet and tile floors. This did the job. Others have said that it doesn't stay charged long enough and I can see in a larger home this might be a problem but I have never had any problems with it running out of juice. I highly recommend for someone wanting something for fast clean-ups without having to drag out the full sized vacuum and all of the attachments. This little vacuum has replaced the need for me to use them and I have moved two canister vacs out to the garage. I'm sold!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lab Mom Disappointed :-(
This vacuum was exactly what I was looking for!!
I have a two story house and my entire 1st floor is gorgeous, light color, hard wood floors. I also have at home a very sweet black lab. His black hair is very obvious on my light color floors.
I was looking for a better and quicker way to clean up his dog hair and this was my answer!!
I have had this vacuum for just over a week and it has been working very well. It picks up the dog hair with no problem and it also works well on the few area rugs we have.
Now for the problem. The battery!!! Like I stated my whole 1st floor is hardwood which is about 800 sq. ft. The battery runs out of juice before I can get to the bed rooms. When I start it has a full charge and after about 10-15 min it needs to go back on the charger. The manual states that is takes about 16 hours to charge so... while its charging I grab the broom and finish. I have even tried to make a make-shift "power cord" using a extension cord and the wall charger and that did not work. This is where the disappointment came from.
If there was a power cord that you could attach so you can use it when the battery is dead that would be handy.
Also, if you have a small area that you plan on using it in it will work great.

Nice little cordless vac. Easy to clean filter...I use an old toothbrush to clean it. It picks up a lot of junk! Great when I need to clean before using my Bissell steam mop. Love the removable hand vac, too. Bought one for the summer home and liked it so much I bought another one for home. Nice in between lugging out the central vac and LONG hose. Already have a friend buying one also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Megme Easy and convenient !
Have used this for a week now (nearly daily). Great suction, all the way through till the battery loses power. The optional use of rotar bar is wonderful to switch on for bathroom mats, and off to prevent sending small particles flying. Love that there is no charging base, just a plug. Battery life is roughly 20min. Slender fit, stores easily. No screws or assembly to deal with, functional right out of the box. Would recommend to anyone not wanting to sweep their kitchen daily, this makes that chore much faster and easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PENNY1548 SURPRISED
I WAS VERY SURPRISED AT HOW GOOD THIS PRODUCT CLEANED. I HAVE A DOG AND CAT, I HAD NO IDEA HOW MUCH HAIR THEY WERE LEAVING BEHIND. I USE IT ON THE HARD WOOD FLOORS AS WELL AS THE CARPET. I WISH THE CHARGE LAST A LITTLE LONGER. THE SWEVEL HEAD MAKES IT SO MUCH EASIER TO USE. I HAVE AND WILL RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. REMEMBER TO ORDER EXTRA FILTERS, THE ONE THAT COMES WITH IT IS EASY TO CLEAN BUT IT IS A PAPER PRODUCT.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sharon K Loved it at first...
I absolutely loved this product when I bought it 8 months ago but it will not hold a charge! I have made sure it's super clean, I've let it completely decharge and then put it on the charger, I've left it on the charger full time all with no results! Any suggestions?

I love my Bissell for what it's intended to do. Although this is my 2nd one (same type) because the first one stopped working and would'nt charge anymore after 1 year. But since I missed it and liked it very well, I opted to purchase another one. Hopefully this one will last me for more than 1 year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Becca Poor suction & sends larger pieces flying!
We have a toddler & two cats. I was hoping I could use this for quick pick ups & it's letting me down! It doesn't pick up little pieces of cat litter because the suction is so poor! & when the brushes are turned on, it just sends it flying across the room! It can even pick up the dust from a fallen cracker! & the handheld part is useless! I'm better off just using a broom!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kittles Best Sweeper Ever!!
I have owned numerous sweepers, this Bissell Lift-Off is by far the best one. I bought a 2nd one just to hold on to just in case something happens to this one & or it get discontinued. I have convinced a few family members to get it too & they are very happy. It does a great job on wood floors, carpets, tile, etc.

This is a nice little cleaner for quick jobs. It does a nice job. The only thing I wish it had a cord and not be cordless. Cordless cleaners don't have the suction that plug-ins do. I like it for quick jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lizster It sucks up more than I thought it would!
I decided to try this Bissell because the other cordless vac I had broke. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this vac is STURDILY made - it was easy to assemble, feels solid and ergonomically good to push it around. It also does not get stuck when transitioning from tile to carpet. Best of all, I was so shocked to find how much PET HAIR and DUST (we have a short haired dwarf rabbit) it sucked up -- MORE than the other vacuum I had used for years before! I didn't realize how much stuff we probably had lingering in our carpets! I also love the 2-way folding handle feature. Thank you Bissell! I'm glad I chose you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by StripeySkunk Perfect for cat hair
I bought this to use on my laminate floors to try and remove the cat hair. I have a short haired cat so shouldn't be too bad -- BUT, the first time I used it I got a huge wad of cat hair. It picks up hairs and small things very well. I also love the easy to dump cup, and it is lightweight so it doesn't hurt my back.

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.
