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 3 out of 5 by marilyn4 light weight
the first time I used this I was very happy with the way it picked up everything and was so light weight that I didn't have any problem with it like I sometimes do with my Dyson. BUT after I emptied it and put it back together it won't pick up and blow dust back out. I don't know if I put it together wrong or what-I did clean the filter but that doesn't seem to help-I did notice that no dirt goes into the bottom of the container but gets stick in the top part of the filter area. I lost my instructions and I need to know if I'm putting together the right way

Rated 2 out of 5 by Eve spits out dirt as it vacuums
I knew I should have been wary about a vacuum that only cost $40, but I really needed one, so I bought it anyway. Using this vacuum is like having a contest to see if you can get your vacuuming done before it spits out all the dirt you just picked up. It is very lightweight and maneuverable, but if it's working against me as I'm vacuuming, it's just not worth it. I will be returning this item and putting the $ toward a better product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chell Great Vacuum Cleaner - Belts a Problem
Bissell is a great vacumm cleaner, the PowerForce Compact , picks up well, and has great suction; however, I haven't had the vacumm cleaner very long and the belt broke. I purchased the Bissell belt 3130 per instructions, and it breaks every time I put one on. I only have carpet in my bedroom, and I cannot enjoy my Bissell. In the beginning it was wonderful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bos_Brd12 EVEN THE WHEELS FEll OFF!
I purchased this vacuum 13months ago and its now in the trash. The vacuum from the beginning kept getting clogged. I would have to take it apart at least once a week. Both wheels felo of after 6mos. I tried to bring it a service store but had a hard time finding 1in my area. Recently the vacuum started to get exetmly loud and if I ran it longer than 2-3mins smelled like something was burning. I guess I got my money worth.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Holly DON'T BUY THIS!
I was so please by the price and the light weight of this vacuum that i almost couldn't wait to use it! I got it home, I used it the 1st time and WONDERFUL! I couldn't wait until the next time! Well......Turns out this vacuum is only good for one use! There is no suction! It wont pick up lent! There is a ton of air that shoots out of the front of it by the filter and that does famously if what your looking for is a way to blow all of the dirt around your house and onto your furniture (which you can't vacuum off due to zero suction on your new Bissell). Don't waste your money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Trish Save your precious dollars
Please think twice before purchasing this vacuum. Spend $20-30 more and really GET something. I had this vacuum a mere year--and then the wheels began coming off. Each time I swung around a corner or piece of furniture off popped a wheel. I finally had to manually lift and maneuver it until I could hie myself to the nearest store to get something better. When I vacuumed around the cat's litter box it only "picked up" about half of any scatterings and if I then had to lift the vacuum over a sill, it spit out the half it had suctioned! (Grit striking bare legs isn't pleasant.) It also kept retaining things under the "screen" that covers the brush roll. This entailed removing five Philips screws, carefully taking off the cover, then cleaning inside, hoping not to disturb the rubber belt when doing so.. Save your precious dollars and get something better designed than this model.
