Rated 3 out of 5 by ChristyisinCR I give it an Okay
I do like the bagless vac, However I have an older Bissell Powerforce that seems a bit more solid than this newer one I got.I got the limited (pink) color and the wheels are really loud when rolling it and it seems less powerful for suction.I don't know if it's just the one I got or not.My old one doesn't do that.But I already used it and threw out the box so I can't return it.I just got it last week.My older powerforce has served me well and I trusted the brand enough to try this newer one, not thrilled but not mad.

Very disappointed! I bought a Bissel Powerforce Helix Turbo. This thing has no power and the belt broke after a short time. Can't find the belts anywhere but online. Unfortunately I don't want to have to wait a week or two for one. I need my carpets cleaned now!!! I have a really old Hoover that works better and belts are easy to find for it! What a waste of money .

Great vacuum cleaner. I used it and it picked up a bunch orf dirt and hair that my old Dirtdevel missed. Very low cost makes it a great buy for the budget conscious homeowner.

i like this vacuum a lot i also have the turbo model too! i use this vacuum in my home and in big offices. i have a question. i bought the fabreeze replacement filter that goes in the bottom of the helix tray, however dust is getting under the filter and into the motor. i have the filter on securely and the housing isnt broken but what can i do to keep the dust out of the motor? can i put a rubber seal on it? also can you make the cheep bissels 12 AMP again?

Not worth it! This would leave piles of debris on the carpet. Invest in a higher quality product.

I purchased my vacuum last month at Walmart. The brush assembly is no longer turning. What's worse, I haven't even had the chance to fill out my warranty card and mail it back. Very unhappy. Had another Bissell that lasted for 3 years :-(

Rated 4 out of 5 by Heather01 Surprisingly powerful.
For an 8 amp motor it does the job very well. I would never purchase anything less than 12 amp but my daughter talked me in to taking a chance on this purchase. The unit is entirely plastic, very light and I'm wondering how durable it will be. I find myself handling the unit very gingerly. I couldn't see it lasting through a large family or any kind of rough handling. I purchased it on sale and I'll be satisfied that I've gotten my monies worth after 12 months of use.

I loved my PowerForce vacuum for 6 weeks. That's how long I had it before the brush quit turning. I checked to see if the belt had broken, it had not. Thinking it may have stretched, I replaced it, but the brush still did not turn, then it broke. I have purchased Bissell products for two decades and they served me well until the last few years. The motor in my PetEraser vacuum had to be replaced after one year, the motor in the carpet shampooer died the second time I used it, now I am without a vacuum again. While both motors were covered by warranty, it was a great inconvenience being without a vacuum and getting stuck with a wet carpet. Dirt Devil, here I come!
