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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bakerc7 Blows dirt out of the way before you can vacuum it up.
This could be a great vacuum. IF they would redesign it! The exhaust blows out the front and at a downward angle. So, blows dirt out of the way before you can vacuum it up.
We really wanted to like this one. It is light weight, small so it gets between chair legs and such.
We returned it to the store

Rated 5 out of 5 by Karenelle Great design Bissell!
I like everything about this machine. But most of all I can CLEAN the machine!!! All the parts are washable - what a great design and a great big "Thanks" from one who likes to keep her cleaning machine clean!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoVon This cute, little, vacuum is powerful!!!
I accidentally ran across this vacuum and was delighted that it's price was very affordable for me. I must admit wondering if it would be too little to do much work, but I took the chance to purchase it. When I ran it over the accent rugs, I was amazed at it's power! I plan on maintaining it well in order to help it keep it's power. I can see how easy it would be to over whelm it's capacity and, perhaps, slow it down.
I love how light-weight it is, too! I can run it and not be worn out afterwards, like I was with a much heavier upright.
It is GREAT for older people to handle easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Drea pleasantly surprised
I was hesitant about buying a compact vacuum but I needed something quick and didn't want to spend too much. I have a new dog who's shedding like crazy, I noticed this had attachments so I decided to give it a try. It's only been 2 days but so far I'm very happy. The brush attachment got 90% of her hair off my bed and the floor suction is very powerful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jeanne514 Never again
We have nothing but problems with this vacuum. There always seems to be something clogged and have needed to take it apart frequently to clear dust clogs. There aren't any animals at all in my small business so I am not sure where the clog is coming from. Now, the brush and brush cover need to be replaced and it appears the brush cover can no longer be purchased. Never again, Bissell. First and last one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HappyHomemaker Little Yet Fierce
Needless to say after countless days wasted sweeping up primarily dog hair; my husband bought this for me back in June 2014. We have two dogs and hardwood/tile floors. It's nice to no longer have to spend countless hours sweeping up dog hair thanks to the PowerForce.
With that aside there have been a few times that the hair has bunched up in the primary separator area. Which has caused it's own share of messes to clean up. Though that's no reason not to give this vacuum a whirl.
Other than that the suction is steady and true though I have found the suction isn't so great with the hose and attachments.
And it would be nice if there was a febreze option (pet odor eliminator would be a plus) for the outer circular filter. As I have no use for deodorizing powder when I only have hardwood and tile.
