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!!

Terrible Vaccum Cleaner. I clean all the filters after each use and it still does not suck up dirt. I will never buy another Bissel product! I purchased this at full price, I can see why they have reduced it!

I purchased the TurboForce Helix in May of 2014 and have used it nearly a year. The machine picks up dirt and pet hair very well, but the foam pre-motor filter must be cleaned after every use. It becomes very clogged. I kept my old Bissell bagged vacuum and use it to clean the foam filter before washing it. Too much trouble. I'm going back to a bagged vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by slowhemi Some serious bang for the buck
I recently moved into a new place and needed a vacuum. For the price paid, the PowerForce Helix Turbo was much more then i was expecting. This thing does its job and does it great!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by undrtakr22 GREAT VACUUM FOR THE PRICE!!!!!!!
Ok, this is the 3rd Bissell brand vacuum, that I have had/used, in close to 10yrs, the first 1 was my roommates vacuum, and the 2nd one was the older model of this same style, then I gave that one to my sister, and bought this model, and I have not had any real issues with any of them, except with this latest model, which came with a flawed roller brush(Which I would expect from a mass produced piece of equipment, just like a vehicle, it happens.), which, once I replaced it, I have not had any problems with it, until I just had to replace the belt for the roller brush, due to the person using it at the time, did not check and see if who used it before them, cleaned out the containers, and cleaned the filters, therefore, it caused the air flow to be bad, since the filters were plugged up, and the roller did not roll like it should have, and it ruined the belt, hence buying a new belt, and it was not Bissell's fault, it was the user's fault, and for anyone who is buying a new vacuum, no matter the brand, ALWAYS check the filters and the contains often, and memorize the sound the motor makes, when the air flow is clear, and when it changes, immediately turn-off the vacuum, and check the filters and the container, and if they look dirty, clean them, so the air flow stays strong, and I do suggest buying a second set of filters(The washable filters. Also, start with the exact same brand and etc, so you know, that they will work correctly, I have bought an off brand, good brand, but they did not work as well.) immediately, so that, you do not ruin the one set, while they need to finish drying(Usually takes a few days to fully dry.), but still need to use the vacuum in the meantime! I do recommend if you have a pet, use the powder deodorizing stuff, which ever scent you like, even the original, but, use it lightly, and make sure to lightly(Just hard enough to knock most of the powder out of the filter, but not hard enough to damage it.) smack the filter, once you hear the motors sound go from normal to that high pitched sound, or you will not have enough air flow, to pick it up, along with the dust/dirt in the carpeting!
