Rated 4 out of 5 by Missy81 Good vacuum, odd design
I do like this vacuum for several reasons: it's light weight for day-to-day cleaning and it does seem to do a fairly good job. I bought it to keep up with pet hair (8 cats) and litter on my hardwood and laminate floor. I sweep almost daily in the areas that they frequent and needed something lighter weight than my canister vac so that I wasn't dragging that out every day. This is definitely light weight and does a good job of cleaning the floors.
I took one star away from my overall rating because of the design of the vacuum. I don't care for the V shape of the bottom. I get that it's for edge cleaning around furniture and so on, but honestly, I sweep a lot more "open" areas than around furniture and it seems like a bit of a waste. I'm still trying to get used to this feature, particularly when I am sweeping along a counter or a wall or into an inside corner (seems like I have to turn sweeper at an odd angle and go along the wall rather than being able to sweep right up to the wall or corner as I would with a straight-edged bottom). Again, nothing with performance is an issue, just a design quirk that I don't care for and don't seem to be used to yet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katherine13 Great Little Pet Vac!!
I purchased the PowerEdge Pet vacuum over 2 years ago and it was the best $$$ ever spent! Three things I absolutely love about it and yes, it still runs perfectly and just ordered new filters:
1. very light weight and easy to clean
2. powerful enough to pick up dog hair and dirt on my laminate floors from my two little dogs
3. even better, the handle will drop all the way to the floor to allow you to get hard to reach places like under your bed.

I have had my Pet Hard Floor Vacuum for a year. I love it!! I have a dog with allergies to grains in food, etc. which causes her to react if a child or someone unaware gives her a treat without asking..sigh.. anyway she will breakout and shed prolifically and this has been the greatest invention of all to me to help keep up with the shed she does. Having a cat and a very fluffy pom to go with the shar pei who sheds like this I can tell you this machine has saved me a lot of work. People who complain about it not picking up on rugs... all i can say is it is not designed for rugs or carpets. They have one for that problem and if you buy it, I'm sure you will be happy as I am with the results. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Long Dog Hair Owner AWESOME for long dog hair
I just purchased this and have to say that this is the best vacuum for pet hair I have ever used. It has no brush to trap the dog hair and sucks up everything from dog hair to the finest grains of sand from bike trails and the beach. I walk around in bare feet and there is no grit on my tile. Gave kudos to it on Facebook too. I would pay much more than the $49 Bissell has this product for. Worth every penny. And the air blowing out the front caused no adverse problems with blowing the dog hair out of the way cause the vacuum sucked it up too fast. Also like that it is corded as my cordless vacuums eventually lose battery life.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Alleyme Not so much!
Initially i thought this was a great vacuum, but I'm not so sure that it is conducive for pet hair when the exhaust fan blows out of the front. It blows pet hair everywhere and can't pick it up. Not so much, Bissell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Southerngenes You will NEVER regret purchasing this!
I have laminate floors and two yorkies, six grandchildren whom I babysit after school and during summer and also a construction working husband. With this said, my floors have something on them constantly! I love, love, love how light weight and easy this is to use and the fact that pet hair and dirt easily gets sucked up into the disposable container. Most vacuums have bristles that collect hair, fuzz and who know what, but this one simply inhales everything in its path. The design is genius because you can vacuum around chair legs without moving them. I am so impressed with it that I have purchased three more to give as gifts!

I have 8 cats and bred Himalayan's for several years. I wish I had found this years ago. Himalayan's shed their fur in clumps which meant using a broom I was constantly picking hair out of the bristles and regular vacuums just blew the hair around. I have tried everything out there with minimal results until now. This is light weight and actually sucks the hair in. I purchased the one with rubber edges not bristles and am glad I did. Also, I have slate floors in my kitchen and dining rooms which doesn't lay level by nature and the hair tends to stick to the slate . Getting the dirt out from the grout lines was such a chore but this works exceptionally well. I wish it had a light attached and the cord could be a little longer but I am thrilled with this. I ordered it in Mid April and it didn't arrive until the end of May . Bissell failed to inform me that it was back ordered and I had to make several phone calls to find this out but it was well worth the wait.
