Rated 5 out of 5 by Nanna My New and Only Vacuum
I bought the PowerForce a couple of months ago and I wouldn't have any other vacuum cleaner. Bissell really hit the nail on the head with this one. Plus, I like that fact that I can order filters, cleaner, etc. online and PLUS, they support Homeless Animals with their donations via some of their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lionheart13 I've been living in a dirty house all these years!!
And here I thought my old vacuum was good - fooled me! I bought this one because several people recommended it and as luck would have it, the store where I bought it had one left in stock (that's always a good sign - popular items never stay in stock). I was absolutely totally and completely amazed the first time I used it - super suction - and I came to the conclusion I had been living in dirt and filth for all these years and didn't know it. That problem is now solved. Great product Bissell -wish I had bought this years ago!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Older then Dirt Superior suction, GREAT Attachments
My first "bagless" vaccumm. I'm a bit concerned that over time the suction will diminish but right now, I'm betting it could "suck golf balls through a garden hose".
I was surprised to see all the dog hair my old vacuum missed over time. The darn canister was almost full on the first use- all dog hair.
The BEST attachment is the portable suction head. Great for stairs, furniture and the like.
One note about attaching this suction head mounting bracket to your machine handle #during assembly out of the box#: the mounting bracket is supposed to slide down into the smaller hole. Well, I tried my darndest and couldn't get it to lock in place. I put a slight coat of dishwashing soap on the narrow part of the hole and it slid in with a minimum of effort.
It would be nice if they included that tip in the set-up instructions

Rated 1 out of 5 by Fatcat Bissell Vacuum cleaner Model #68C71
I purchased this product 4/1/15 and by 6/15/15 it would not adjust the height nor would it suction any dirt from the carpet. I am very displeased with this product as I expected it to last longer than 2 1/2 months before it stopped working.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bananahammock Pretty good so far
I just got this bad boy from the curb. Someone tossed it, presumably because the belt broke. So much for the Millennial Generation being the lazy ones around here. I went to Target and bought a new belt, 2 for 5, and slapped that puppy in. BAM, its picking up stuff I didn't even see. We also got the TURBO BRUSH, it'll sweep up cat hair off of the couch like STINK. Man, this thing is great, and the girlfriend loves it because she thinks I'm a handy man and a domestic god all in one. Thanks Bissell!
I gave this a 4/5 because I want to see how long the new belts last before it breaks again, and it also makes a metric ton of noise, which I don't personally care about but it's a thing.
Now if I can get the cat to enjoy a nice TURBO BRUSHING I'll be all set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Slumbergirl92 Lovee the Power Force Helix
I purchased this vacuum today. I had a dirt devil that was given as a gift but the filter was terrible and old. Anyway, I have carpet in my large bedroom and two dogs. This vacuum sucked up all the debri that my dogs bring in, especially in this spring weather. I also love the febreze filter that you can add. My entire house smells like it! :) the upholstery brush is great too for there beds and sofas. Will get again in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Holly Why are the parts different?
I bought this vacuum a few years ago, and loved it so much, I purchased another one today, very disspointed with the small size of the crevice tool and the wand, they are much shorter.

This vacuum is awesome. It literally picks up everything. It made my carpet look brand new. Who knew a vacuum could work so well. I would highly recommend purchasing this product.
