Rated 5 out of 5 by KittyMeowMeow Great working Product!
This product does exactly what it says it will do. I waited until now as I wanted to see how it lasted in the long run. It picks everything up (including items I didn't think it would!), but like everything, ongoing maintenance is required. For instance, clean the bristles (inc. removing them from bottom to gain items in nics and crannies) often. I've only had one problem which just occurred (after using item 3 or more times/week): the bottom back bumper (for lack of a better word) came off. It's made of soft rubber and over time it developed a crack and fell of the machine. It doesn't impede from cleaning, but it does detract from looks. Since this is a life-time warranted item, I'm going to be getting another as soon as Bissell reads this comment as they DO provide speedy, efficient customer service and that's on top of a great product!

I have always used one or the other of this type of
powerless sweeper. The Bissell is great . The only problem after a few years of use is that the sides, which hold the revolving brushes - which you are advised to 'flex' to remove the brushes for cleaning, do eventually allow the brushes to come out of their bearings during use due to the 'self flexing' of the sides themsleves, so that the cleaner itself becomes useless due to this unwanted dislocation of the brushes.
This could be avoided if the sides were strengthened sufficiently with, may be a thicker side with a 'ridge' of
thicker molding along these edges to add 'anti-flex-strength' which would still allow you to remove the brushes but also help retain sufficient rigidity of the sides so that they retain their strength to keep the brushes in place over the life of the unit.
Whatever , I will in fact be ordering the latest new unit from Bissell of these sweeping units.

I had the older model sweeper for approx. 30 years and loved it. I left it behind in a recent move. Thus having to order a new one. I also love this model, it is very convenient to use, one advantage of the older model was that the dirt doors on the bottom of the unit stayed open when cleaning it out, the newer model does not do that making it a little difficult to clean out. I still love it and have purchased 2 more for family members.

I have had an old Bissell sweeper in my "men's lounge" for a long time. It's old but works very well. We recently installed new carpeting in our house. It's fairly flat carpet and I knew that a Bissell would be just the thing for the quick clean-ups. My favorite part is that it does not require electricity. It's quiet and efficient and works very well. It's also priced right. No one with a flat style of carpeting like indoor/outdoor should be without one.

The Natural Sweep is very handy for quick clean-ups. Naturally it doesn't "deep clean" like a vacuum, but works great on surface dirt and debris. It's easy to empty and takes little space to store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Suph Good sweeper
Good sweeper for price--handle keeps trying to unscrew itself, but that's easily remedied. Also, I didn't find a comb for the brushes, so I'm using the one from my older, worn out Bissell.

It does well overall but sometimes you have to run over what you are trying to get it to pick up a few times before it actually does. It also does not usually get everything. So if you want something that is quick and get 90% of the dirt, then this is your sweeper. But if you want to get everything, it is much faster to get out a broom and dust pan.
