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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debbie56 Light and Wonderful
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 1 out of 5 by Livianna Horrible
You'd do better with a straw and manual power to pick up anything . This vacuum is horrible! Can't even pick up pet fur off a small area rug. Constant spitting out what it tried to pick up so you can start all over again. Hose is very short and you will certainly get a hump from all the time you spend bent over using it to pick up everything left from the push function (leaves dusty lines through out where you have pushed and pulled it through).

Rated 3 out of 5 by tmd1977 great for first two years
I got this vacuum as a gift almost three years ago and it was perfect for my little apartment. I have two cats so I do clean the filters often and it continues to pick up cat hairs on a regular basis. My problem is the wheels keep falling off. I have mostly floors and only two thin carpets so it's not like the wheels have to struggle, but now it is just a pain in the rear cause they fall off even just picking the vacuum up to carry to my vacuuming destination in the apartment. I love the hose attachment, but recently, in the last couple weeks the house attachment has broken, but I'm sure that's just the strain of using it all the time. The wheels is what is most annoying and as I read the comments, I see I am not the other one having this issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alexis Bissell PowerForce Compact
This is my second Bissell PowerForce Compact that I purchase. The first one lasted 1yr 4 mo and was used at least four days a week. The roll that have the brushes broke so it was more cost effective to purchase a new unit that trying to repair the old one.
My only problem is with the replacement parts which cannot be found where I purchase the vacuum; not even the filters or belts.

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.
