Rated 5 out of 5 by Val95605 Great little vacuum
Just got the PowerForce vacuum and I am very pleased. We only have area rugs in our house that need vacuuming, but this gets them clean and removed all the cat hair. It was amazing how much this little vacuum cleaned up in such a small area.

This is the best little vacuum that I have ever owned.
I love the attachments, I love how light it is and best of all I love to finally be able to get my throw rugs cleaned and looking great. I've had battery operated little vacuums and other brands of electric and did not like the job they did. This little vacuum is powerful, easy to clean and a joy to use.

The base has stopped suctioning after only 3 months of use! It is just terrible! Even when it worked, it circled a lot of dirt around it. It is too loud too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mrsginn1957 The name fits!
This is a great value. The name "PowerForce" truly fits this product. It's very lightweight, easy to handle and has great suction power.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Z not recommend
I would not recommend this product unless you are using it for hardwood floors, tile. When trying to use it on carpet it is too light weight and does not work at all. Very difficult trying to push it on carpet. Between my family members and I we have 6 other bissels that we love--not sure what they were thinking with this one :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by normajeanne Greatly lacking wheel design takes all joy out of ownership.
This is the second time I've purchased this same model of machine. I purchased the first one about two years, and was completely satisfied with its performance. Therefore, three months ago I bought a new one and, knowing someone who needed a good vacuum, I happily gave the older one away.
Unlike the first machine, however, with this second one, both the wheels keeps falling off at the slightest turn of the machine on carpet or difference in floor elevation. I'm not referring here just on deep pile or shagged carpet, I'm talking about on flat floors going onto mats and area rugs, for goodness sake!! The wheels come off a dozen times or more in the course of one room, this is not a small issue at all.
I'm submitting this review not only for myself, but I bragged so much about the first machine that my neighbor bought one also, and the same thing is happening with hers. Extremely embarrassing. What's the deal, Bissell? What fix have you got to keep the wheels on the machine?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Abc123 Bad investment
The bissell powerforce compact is by far one of the worst vacuums to purchase. No quality in this product and bad design. Brushes barley pick anything up. Also don't bother to purchase if you own a dog. Not even able to pick dog hair up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Constantcleaner Compact,but mighty!
I just purchased this yesterday, and I'm very pleased with it's power! I had 2 other models (6585-6584), and find this smaller model to be just as good at picking up cat hair on low pile carpet and wood flooring. I kept the attachments from the others, as this one is shorter....they fit perfectly! :)
