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 2 out of 5 by Marj I plan on returning this vacuum
Pros: lightweight, nice color, easy to operate, filters are easy to clean. seems to pick up dirt.
Cons: hose is too short, could use an extender, does not stay in floor receptacle, dirt cup is very hard to put back on, switch to loosen dirt cup moves if it touches something, exhaust is so strong it blows papers off the refrigerator and blows dust out again.

I bought this vacuum in the month of April 2014. in five months wheels are starting to fall off.I noticed that the wheels are made of flimsy plastic and the they have practically worn off. I have used this product to just vacuum two door mats on a daily basis.

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?
