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 3 out of 5 by Rochelle2093 not sure what to think..
I have mixed reviews. I've had this vacuum for almost 3 years and it has been great, hasn't had a broken belt or anything. however, it used to clean up my 2 dog's hair perfectly, however only the last year it has picked and chosen (so to speak) which spots it'd like to vacuum up. When I vacuum it leaves lines and have to vacuum over the spot a million times at different angles. I have cleaned out the filters, and all the little compartments #which is very tedious work, and I end up getting more dirt on myself and floor than in the vacuum). I'm wanting a better vacuum for pet hair but not spend a fortune. Anyone recommend maybe a dual carpet cleaner/vacuum combo from Bissell? any response would be greatly appreciated.

Less then two months are was broke plastic bushing for roller brush not a solid design. Still being sold new but many replacement parts are obsolete. Junk waste of money.

Over the years I have tried many vacuums: Electrolox, Oreck, Hoover, Kenmore and don't have any of them. One by one problem... I've had a Bissell carpet cleaner for a decade now and it still works well. So when I was looking for a new vacuum recently I found the Powerforce Helix at my local Walmart. I liked the features the box said and price was a steal. It was between the Powerforce and a Dirt Devil for about the same price and I am happy with my new Bissell. The price is a steal for this vacuum.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jaycee Very poor design
The red screw in filter at the top prevents dirt from falling into the waste cup. I have to remove the red filter from the top to pull out the dirt. If course, the trash falls all over the vacuum cleaner top and floor, which then has to be re -vacuumed. Very annoying.

Just purchased Bissell Powerforce Helix Turbo Bagless Vacumn. The display model at the Walmart store showed a 12amp Vacumn , I purchased that Vacumn and brought it home,opened it up and it says it's a 10 amp vacumn. I wanted a 12 amp Vacumn because of better suction. What's going on ?? Would like an answer please. Have not even put it together yet..ready to take back.
