Rated 5 out of 5 by Tina Wonderful product!
This is the best vacuum cleaner I have ever owned! It will pick up the smallest amount of dust and dirt. You can vacuum with one of the competitors and then go over the exact same area, and the Bissell will pick up the dirt that the competitors left behind! I love my Bissell Powerforce Helix turbo!!

This machine RAWKS! I not only use it for overall cleaning but pest control too (Roaches and spiders beware; MWAHAHAHA) Anyway, this Helix is WAY better than my Dirt Devil vacuum that hardly worked. Well done, Bissell! BTW, If you come out with a hose tool to clean ceiling fan blades, I'll make it SIX stars! ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by happyowner Great for the price
I love my vacuum cleaner, this is the 2nd one, first one the motor started going out after 5 years. We only do normal vacuuming in our house. Only thing is I need to find out how to clean it to get the "dusty" smell out of the machine. The air that comes out while cleaning really smells like a dirty house, but I only assume it's the dust that it picks up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bob2533 this is a great product
this is our second power force 12B1 ...gave the first to our daughter for part time cleaning jobs ! this vacuum is made very strong , never loses suction , easy to change & clean the filters , good on board tools , great price @ Wal-Mart , the 20' ft cord is a little short so I simply added a 5' ft extension cord , keep up the good work Bissell

Rated 4 out of 5 by Debi 2013 Found one flaw...
I truly like the Powerforce & how well it cleans, especially with 3 dogs in the house I constantly clean.
I utilize the hose alot as well to vacume my couch & loveseat. but one day, sun was shining in the window just as I went to use the hose to do my couch. I turned on the vacume & suddenly seen dust flying out of the hole where the hose attaches to use for floor vacuming. I felt I was wasting my time cleaning with the dust just flying back out all over & had never noticed until the sun was shining in. SO, I cleaned the vacume cleaner really good, took totally apart & washed every part. Went to clean again with the hose & STILL the dust flies out of the tube where the hose attaches for the floor use. Feeling let down, like Im cleaning for nothing because then I have to dust AGAIN after I vacume. :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jane521 Not the quality Bissell product I expected.
The belt breaks easily...I have had this vac only since August 2 ,2013..Today is Nov.25, 2013. I check the roller before vacuuming each and every time. I adjust the height when changing carpet level. I don't know if the belts are faulty or the vacuum. The belt snaps and breaks at the point one end is connected to the other each and every time....the belts don't have time to get worn enough to break or stretch...This will be the fourth belt I have replaced and just getting to the 4 month anniversary of purchase...I have never had trouble with a Bissell vacuum, or any other Bissell product. The trouble with this one is getting old fast!
