Rated 5 out of 5 by buncomom3 Powerful Suction
This is the best vacuum. Cleans up the cat hair the best of any I've owned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rls1041 works well
I bought this because my very old eureka finally bit the dust. my granddaughter helps with vacing and the Bissell healthy home unit I have is way too bulky and heavy for her to maneuver, it is for me as well. I use the healthy home one once a month because it sucks well but this also does just not quite as good though. this one does well with pet hair too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doe B. Best vaccum for the money!!!
I have been cleaning houses for over 7 years now and I have used many of my customers vacuums, some cheap and some very expensive ones (that tout that they never lose suction! but you can't lose something you never really had in the first place...lol) yet none compare to my Bissell Power Force. It is the only vacuum I ever buy, it will pick up the dirt left behind after using those expensive others and it is a fraction of the cost. I have even sold a lot of the people I work for on them and they have bought themselves one. I will not buy any other vacuum than this EVER! This vacuum lasts a long time under daily use by this housekeeper, and the fact you can wash all the filters keeps it smelling clean for each of my customers as well. When asked about vacuums...I will only ever recommend this Bissell Power Force to anyone for ease of use, cost, suction, ease of use of it hose and attachments, its light weight, ease to clean etc...This is my testimonial from a housekeeper of over 7 years who uses this vacuum daily! It is worth every penny of it's low cost!

Love it. I was using my Rainbow, but it is too bulky to use all the time. I like my Bissel to use as often as I want then use the rainbow once every two or three months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jazzy13 I Love it !
It's so light weight and easy to assemble., I had one before this on same brand but it was so heavy that half way through my cleaning I had to take a break, But the price was reasonable and being light weight is a plus. Thank you Bissell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gene Would recommend to anyone!!!
I am very happy with the Bissell PowerForce I just purchased. It was very easy to put together and once I used it on my rugs - well the job was great. It really does the job superbly. Oh and lets not forget the "no filters feature." This is a huge plus - all you have to do is just pour the 'dirt' out and screw back on and go on your way. How convenient is that! All in all, I am very happy. Bissell has done it again! This model is very efficient, convenient and best of all affordable. Hats off to Bissell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NinaK Love it but...
I have had my vacuum for a couple of months and love it. However I can't get it to turn on. I have cleaned everything out including the undercarriage and nothing. Glad I bought the warranty

Rated 1 out of 5 by mb Very disgusted
I bought this vacuum on 6/27/12 and now it is completely burnt up. I thought a vacuum should last more than 1 year.
Maybe I expected too much. Will never buy your brand again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dotty So far so good.
Haven't had trouble with the brush yet. That is the best news. It does pick up pet hairs, etc. I have been very happy with the results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jellylevimom broke twice
The roller brush seized up twice and burnt out the bearings. Bissell replaced the roller brush the first time but told me I would have to pay the second time. It would have cost more than a new vacuum. I just trashed it. I will not buy a Bissell again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kim Its Ok
I love Bissell and will only by Bissell vacuums for my home, but this one just doesnt make the cut. I used it one time and boxed it up. It does ok on carpet but only scatters the dirt on my wood and tile floors. I will say that I exchanged it for another Bissell that is absolutely amazing. It costs a little more but was well worth the extra cash.

This was gift for college and has worked great! It was easy to put together and picks up just about everything. I'm a little confused on the bag (or lack of bag) situation. Overall I am happy with the product and would recommend it to another college student!

Rated 2 out of 5 by unsatisfied customer an 'ok' product
The first time i used the vacuum it worked great but, the second or third time it lost suction and the belt broke. The hose is too small so you cant really clean thoroughly. Now that i vacuum dust flies everywhere and its a hassle o clean because you don't want to end up with dust all over your clothes or hands. Yes, the filters are washables but they clogged up so fast and will soon worn down you might buy new ones

Rated 5 out of 5 by vietnamvet67 Excellent product
The Powerforce Helix Vacuum I just purchased was easily assembled and I was amazed at what was collected using the vacuum for the first time on the bedroom carpet and tile floor located on the rest of the house. Also, it is light and easily moved about on the carpet. Highly recommend this vacuum especially for a disabled senior.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cristina t strong air coming out of front vent
i really love this product. but, every time i vacuum there is a strong air (as if you put your head out the car window and the air is blowing your hair strong) this is coming out of the front vent. im not sure if im explaining the location right. its in the front. almost like the grill. where it has lots of wholes in it. shouldnt air go inside? on mine the air comes out. so im thinking that its throwing dust back out in my house. is this normal? or not? i really dont like it. i have two small kids and i feel as if its just throwing dust back in my house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BlueStride Super Section Pet Hair GONE!
I bought this at my local Walmart after reading many other positive reviews from happy owners of this unit. It has super suction power, is easy to clean being bagless, and gets the job done the first time, everytime! I could not believe how much pet hair and dirt came off of my carpet after using for the first 3 times. My house smells better now and is so much cleaner now and it's all thanks to my new PowerForce Helix Bagless Vacuum! Thanks Bissell Family for making an affordable yet high quality product!

Rated 2 out of 5 by cuttemdown twice is nice but i would like to use it more
I've had my vacuum for 1 mo and only used it twice on the 3rd use the spindle stopped spinning and popped my belt so I brought 2pks and 3of4 bands popped b 4realized the issue was not the band but the beater bar or spinning mech. was not working and now I have to explain this to Bissell and hope I don't have to pay for anything because it was clearly defective from start and I just didn't know it

Rated 5 out of 5 by Graywolf This is a great product at a great price.
This is my second Powerforce Bagless upright. The first one is still working just fine, but I like the product so much I gave the first one, which I've used for nearly three years to my step son. I bought the newest model and as usual it works fantastic. I love the washable filter system and the new small design tweeks. Great product. I will buy another if and when this one wears out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by firetroll Better then most price twice as much
our 2nd one, first one lasted 5 years. I do wish you had not got rid of the handle on the hose. Hard for older folks to pull it lose to use the hose and I think the cord is about 2 feet shorter then the old unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by deisel11 Wow
I just bought this product and I must say it does a wonderful job. You wouldn't believe what came off my floor, can you say ewww? I was in shock about how well this item cleaned my carpet, I feel a lot better about my kids playing on the floor now. T only thing is that you have to get your hands dirty to clean it. But over all a very great product, I would suggest it to anyone.

I could not believe that the Bissel Powerforce helix did a better job than my fancy expensive Hover wind tunnel. AND it is so much easier to push around, AND picked up lots more cat hair. Silverton, Or.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BJoe444 Fast and Easy
Bought the other day and really fast and easy and picked up soooooo much cat fur. The price was unbelievable and I will pay for the vacuum in 2 months because I was spending a fortune in vacuum bags for my other antiquated Bissell vacuum. I love this Bissell brand and price and it is actually fun to vacuum with this one.
