Rated 4 out of 5 by Montemalone A lot of vacuum for the money
I'd give 5 stars except for the fact that the hose is so short, Forget about using it on ceilings or anything more than 1 foot from the vacuum. Otherwise, a lot of power. I have 2 cats and lots of fur, this thing got it up off the carpet and upholstery in no time. The canister lets you see just how dirty your floors and furniture are, so don't vacuum in front of company.
No more bags to buy ever.
For $48 you can't go wrong.

Very pleased with this machine. Does an excellent job for me on mostly tile floors but switches to the carpet easily. Only wish the cord was longer but we have plenty of outlets.

I recently purchased this machine. I live in senior housing. 71 years of age. For my needs this machine is great. Of all vaccum products out there, there a just a few that are great. Bissell is one of the few. It is light weight,and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ladyalaska This machine is great and good for me!
Before I purchased this vaccum, I looked at many.
I got this from a local discount store. They had it on display in two different sections in their store. I brought it home and it cleaned my carpet in a way that no vaccum did. I took my vaccum to work and it out perform the ones they had. All of my co-workers could not believe the way the carpets look at work. The best
vaccum I purchased in a long time. I will continue to use this product. Thank You Bissell. The HELIX works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susan-B-Happy Color me IMPRESSED!!!!
I have owned many vacuums over the years that were very costly. I thought they did a decent job as I am very particular about my floors. I needed to purchase a new one so I compared Oreck, Dyson, Shark and others that would be very good but also very pricey. I have used Bissell carpet cleaning machines for many years and have always found each one to be better than the last, but had never used their vacuum. So I found the PowerForce Helix on sale and decided to try it, I had nothing to lose. I am so impressed with this cleaner. It pulls up so much dirt it seems as though it is getting it from the ground under the house. Others have complained about the cord length, I simply use an extension cord and problem solved. No complaints here, I am one HAPPY camper. Thank you and when this one needs replacing I will definitely buy another BISSELL.

Rated 4 out of 5 by amanda12 POWERFORCE HELIX BAGLESS VACUUM
Love this vacuum...It has done a great job and I never knew that there was so much dirt and hair in my carpet. I have gone through alot of vacuums and this one makes number 4 in the last 10 years. But this one by far has the best suction and pick up power. Love the low price and it was well worth trying out. Would of loved the hose to be more flexable and dumping the containers can be a little messy. But worth the easy cleaning of filters. Will be buying another without second thought for daughter who has 4 kids!

Have had this product for one week and I love love love it. Lightweight, easy to empty debris bucket and so easy to clean the washable filters. Picks up an amazing amount of dirt from the carpets and love it on the tiled floors. It doesn't spread the dirt all around - it picks it up. Will definitely buy more bissell products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jean Worth the money spent!
I wasn't sure this vacuum would work well since it was only $45. I was shocked how much dirt it picked up! We have a cat and a dog and I was amazed at how much hair it picked up. It also works great on tile floor! I also love the fact that you can wash the filter! Would buy this again and would recommend it to family and friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rcman2000 It has way better suction power than the GARRY
This is the best vacuum cleaner we have owned for a while. Sure wish it came with the turbo brush accessory.
P.S. Do NOT get the GARRY!!!!
P.P.S. If you already have a GARRY return it!!!!
P.P.P.S. WE DID!!!!!

I thought the Bissell Poweforce vacuum would be just a cheaply made vacuum for the price I paid. Got it home and I was surprised at how much it picked up on the carpet in my new apartment that was suppose to be cleaned before I moved in. Also, I broke some glass on fhe floor. My Bissell got every bit of glass up. I like the idea of no bags. No forgetting to buy anymore.

I like that this vaccum is light, however it's comes up in front to easy when vaccuming. It also doesn't go under the bed's or any other furniture expect something high like a kitchen/coffee table. Decent vaccum though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fit1too Gets the dirt others leave behind
This is absolutely one powerful vacuum. Having managed (and cleaned) a 20 unit apartment complex for 22 years, I’ve used many of the competitions’ products. None compare! Plus, there are no bags and filters to buy. Most of all, this vacuum is dirt cheap!!!

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!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Blondy useless
I got this product and it has no belt. It's out of the box and it is useless. Don't they have to pass an inspection? I bought this vacuum because I need a vacuum, not a big plastic nothing. I am a busy person that has little time to deal with a broken vacuum out of the box that has never worked. I expected to buy a brand new vacuum and be able to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kandiiiapples My first bagless vacum purchase from Bissell.
I have been using/purchasing Bissell vacum cleaners since 1992. This is my very first bagless purchase. I have always bought them (vacums) from Walmart. I assembled my Powerforce Helix vac and tried it out. it so far has exceptional suction power. This is the first Bissell vacum to pic up so much, so quickly. I am impressed. I pray that I have many years of this powerful vac suction while doing my carpets. All my vacs in the past, loss suction power it seems after the first year.

I have only had the sweeper for a few weeks. It will not pick up anymore and spits stuff out the back at me. I will be returning the machine to the store I bought it at. It worked well the first 3 times then went bad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by imac In general, it is a good Vacuum
The cleaner is worth the money. I was very sure that I wanted a bagless cleaner. One of my friends have the same one and it does a decent job with cleaning the carpets and hard floor [Disclaimer: Used it just once since I bought]. The main drawback is the cord length. Over years one would imagine that Bissell would have increased the cord length in general but alas that is not the case to be on this one. I cleaned the filter right after cleaning. I do believe that based on the size and how much you use the cleaner, the filter needs to be cleaned for a better out come. Ofcourse, you wouldn't want to be doing often but cleaning the filters is not that hard on this model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mikey Pretty Good For The Price
I bought my Bissell a couple of months back, and have used it several times. I am pleased with it's cleaning power and ease of handling. It is also pretty easy to clean, and I don't mind doing it because I don't have to worry about running out of bags. The only complaint I would have is that the hoses are a very tight fit, and it is not easy to put it together. It really took me a lot of muscle strength to get it ready to go. Also, I don't think the height adjustment works. Otherwise, it is a good deal for the price, and I am generally happy I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mariemariemarie what a surprise!
I was trying to find a MORE EXPENSIVE Bissell vacuum but it was out of stock at all of the Target stores within driving distance-- I woud have had to order online ( at A HIGHER price to get it. So I went to WalMart and bought a Bissell Powerforce Helix. It replaced a Hoover wind tunnel bagless which literally blew up because it was diverting the pet hair into the hose instead of the cup. I was skeptical, but now I ama believer.... you cannot believe what it picked up... it was better than any of the specialty pet vacuums I have owned and with a much better flitration system, in my humble opinion.
I HAD to get a vacuum today and glad I chose this one.
