Rated 5 out of 5 by Bissellluvr This vacuum really sucks.
That was a play on words because this vacuum has great suction. We have a dog and cat who shed constantly and this vacuum along with the furniture tool does an absolutely thorough job on the carpeting,floors and furniture making all look new again. Couldn't believe all the dirt that my last vacuum didn't pick up and you had to really work at what it did pick up. This vacuum is built stronger, easier to empty and keep clean. You can see and feel the difference of this vacuum. My husband and I Love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tom Excellent suction, just a little heavy on high pile
Works very well. No dog or cats since the tornado, but, this vacuum works very well. It is a little heavy/cumbersome on high pile carpet, but, other then that, it's great.
It's easy to take apart and clean as well.

Have had the sweeper for approxamitley 1 month, am very satisfied so far. It performs very well for most of the cleaning, the only thing that could be improved on is the length of the wand/hose combination to make it easier to clean ceiling fans and the corners of the ceiling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AJ 2012 Almost Great Vacuum
I love this vacuum but it does lose suction every now and then due to the filter being full but that's normal. It did get clog with my sister's art project one time but its was a simple fix. Also one part is little bit damage but it will last. But an excellent vacuum over all.

My wife wanted a lighter vacuum than previous ones because of stairclimbing. The cleaning power of this unit was phenomenal!! We could actually see the amount of dirt the other vacuum left behind; and the ease of emptying the cleaner. Another bonus; no bags to buy! Thank you Bissell!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by helpfulhusband great vacuum
this vacuum is a great buy for the money. it runs extremely quiet and yet it cleans extremely well. my wife and i use it every day and just love the fact that it is so quiet. we have two cats and a medium size dog that shed hair and we vacuum carpets and bare floors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jeannie1 Good suction but......
The Powergroom is not a bad vacuum cleaner but there seems to be too many parts that will need replacing and too many places within the vacuum itself that you have to clean. Also, I don't know if I'm doing something wrong but everytime I use the attachments stuff blows out of the opening where the wand base fits into. While using the attachments if you are not careful how you reach the vacuum will tip over. I don't have a problem with straight vacuuming.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Justice Cheaply made!
This vacuum does pick up okay; however, when I try to remove the waste receptacle, it gets jammed on the cyclone piece that becomes detached each time I use the machine. I end up having to pull very hard to get it to release. The lever loosens it only a fraction of an inch. A lot of times some dirt ends up back on the floor because of that. I have to reattach the cyclone pieces each time I dump the dirt. It seems to still pick up pretty well, even though those pieces are not very stable. It is a pain, though. Also, I had used a flea powder on my carpet recently, and ever since I vacuumed it my vacuum now roars with each use! It used to be a quieter machine. I don't think I am that rough on vacuums, but this one started messing up after about a year. The roaring thing was only this last month or so (close to 2 years after purchase).
