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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jerri Powerfully Better Than The Previous Version
Seems to do real well. Emptying and filter cleaning is not too bad but seems inproved in suction than your previous model. Previous model height adjustment for the carpets broke after 2 days. This model is holding up much better.
It is pulling dirt out of my carpet better than you older model that was not a helix. Mark me happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zhen Reliable vacuum!
I am so pleased with my Bissell upright, but the best part is not having to buy any filters!! The rugs in my apartment have never been cleaner!
The machine is not horribly loud, which is awfully nice. I haven't used all of my attachments yet, but did use the wands to pick up something a little beyond my reach and it worked efficiently.
Thank you for making this model so affordable!

I REALLY LOVE THE WAY IT PICKS UP THE NAPP ON THE RUG. ALSO DOES A WONDERFUL JOB ON THE KITCHEN FLOOR. THE ONLY DRAWBACK IS THE CORD, IT COULD BE ABOUT 6 ft LONGER.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jimy2013 Really picks up dirt
I was really impressed the way the Bissell picked up dirt from the carpet. The price of the product was really good also. I look forward to many years of use from the Bissell Powerforce Helix.

I was amazed at the dirt my Powerforce picked up in just
a couple of swipes when trying it out. Couldn't believe it.
I've been using a much heaver machine with bags and
thought it did really good until it died. Heard several people mention the Bissell was a good machine so I bought one. It's one of the best purchases I've bought.
You would think I'd never in 9 years vacuumed my floors.
Fantastic, lightweight and almost seems self propelled.
Thank you Bissell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by old Pete works great
I have an older canister type of sweeper which works well but this sweeper picked up dirt the other one missed, not just some dirt but a lot of dirt it filled the hopper.
my friend said that the carpet looked brighter.
Doing the whole house I actually had to empty the hopper 3 times if you don't want to be bothered emptying the hopper get another cleaner because this one cleans and cleans well.
only thing I can say bad is the length of the power cord it needs to be longer another 5 to 10 feet would make this sweeper a 5 star sweeper.

We would recommend this sweeper to everyone.

I was skeptical, buying a vacuum that cost so little. I got it home, easy to put together, only two steps. Then, I used it for the first time. It was miraculas, where it didn't even look dirty, it sucked up dirt! I love Bissel now, I will continue to buy this brand for sure!
