Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy in Chicago Love my new Vac!
I just got my new Lift -Off multi pet vacuum yesterday and could not wait to get it out of the box. I was ready to have problems putting it together from some of the reviews I read but that was not the case. Really didn't even have to look at the manuel. Two screws and everything else just clicks into place. The first thing I did was my hardwood floors and then took off the canister and did my carpeted stairs. What a pleasure. My old canister vacuum did not have a stair attachment, the cord was not long enough as my stair case is a U shape with two landings. I would have to do them in sections. First the top, plugged in upstairs and then carry everything down and re-plug in downstairs and work my way back up. Hated the stairs. Now with my new vacuum the cord is long enough that I can vacuum part of the hall on the second floor. My stairs will be vacuum much more now. Also love having all the tools on board. My last canister I had to change the hose from carpet to hard surface also had to go and get attachments when I needed them. If it's that much work your not always going to do the best job. The Crevice tool is long and narrow which is great for getting into the lint trap in the dryer. Also like the telescoping extension wand, make it whatever size you need. So looking forward to vacuum everything.
The other nice feature is the dirt that I got up was the real fine stuff, that you see under your carpet when you are replacing it. The suction is great! Love my Vac!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs! Lift off and go is the greatest feature!
Love my new Lift-Off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum! Easy to use, tools are easy to attach! The best part is being able to lift-off and go! Would recommend this to any one who has animals!

Over the years I have had many vacuum cleaners including Kirby, by far this is the lightest, easiest vacuum I have ever owned. I always had a problem cleaning the stairs in my home as the cleaners were either too heavy or the hose just wasn't long enough or a real hassle to convert to the hose. This is one click and it's ready to go. I love the small canister as it forces you to clean it to get the maximum cleaning out of the machine. The first time I used it I was so surprised as to how much was left in my carpets from the other vacuum cleaner.
I LOVE my new Bissell Lift Off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sethjack Replaced Bissell by MFC
I had several problems with my first Bissell. First, I had to replace the belt for the rotor brush twice within a month. My second major problem the motor became louder and louder and then it stopped working. I took the vacuum to one of the warranty repair shops. The motor had to be replaced. After the repair, the machine started leaving scratches on my hard wood floors. I took it back to the same repair shop to fix the problem. They replace the plate on the bottom of the vacuum. The technician informed me I should not use the brush on hardwood floors even though the instructions came with the vacuum stated the vacuum could be used on hardwood and carpet. I wrote a letter to the MFC complaining about the problem. I received an immediate response from the MFC asking for pictures and proof of purchase. Bissell replaced the vacuum with a switch to turn off the brush. This machine has better suction than the previous machine. I have not had the vacuum long enough to determine if I am going to be satisfied but so far so good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lem No Brush Power
I just recently got the Multi-Cyclonic pet vacuum and have only used a handful of times. Today while I was vacuuming, the unit started making weird noises & then the brush stopped working. I unscrewed the bottom of the unit and cleaned off the brush, however, when I turn the brush power button back on there is NO POWER. I can't believe that this vacuum has stopped after using less than 5x total.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SunshineLady512 Great At First but Doesn't Last
We purchased this vacuum in February 2011 when we moved. We loved it at first because it has the lift-off for stairs and the attachment did a great job of getting pet hair (we have two cats) off the stairs, curtains, and furniture. There are several problems with it: 1) it keeps clogging; 2) dust goes everywhere when you empty it; 3) it doesn't take very long to fill up the compartment - I have to empty it twice when vacuuming the stairs and the 3 upstairs bedrooms; 4) the brush keeps stopping and has to be cleaned; 5) the filter needs to be changed too often; 6) the Pet TurboBrush® completely stopped working after about a year but we were told it was an attachment so it wasn't covered under the warranty but we could purchase a replacement; 7) the whole vacuum cleaner just completely died today when I was half-way up the stairs. We have had this vacuum for three and a half years so it is JUST outside of the warranty period. The last vacuum we owned (a different brand upright with a a bag) lasted about ten years! It still worked when we replaced it - I just wanted a bagless since the bags were getting hard to find. Now I wish we hadn't thrown it away! I think I'm going to have to use my handvac to finish vacuuming my stairs! A vacuum cleaner that is designed for pet owners to pick up pet hair and pet dander shouldn't keep clogging when being used for its intended use. I will never buy a Bissell again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crusaderboi Great product, with great features.
This unit was recommended by the carpet manufacturer. It has great power and great features. It keeps our carpet looking like when we moved in. The height adjustability is wonderful also! I thoroughly enjoy being able to just lift-off the motor and take it where I need to go. And the ingenious thought of the brush roll stopping when the vacuum is locked upright is just BRILLIANT! Thank you for making a wonderful vacuum for homes with pets. The only thing I do have a problem with is the brush. I initially thought the triangular dusting brush was a great idea, but I think I would appreciate a more traditional shape for dusting duties. Thank you.
