Rated 2 out of 5 by Daddyo2 It was good at first...
When this vacuum was new it worked great, but over time suction has went down a significant amount. As long as you are willing to buy filters every couple of months it will do fine, that is until the roller brush assembly gets locked up for the whatever # time and you end up putting another belt on and taking the roller assembly off and fixing it. This one will be finding a new home (dumpster). Sadly disappointed in the quality of this vacuum

Rated 3 out of 5 by Forensicslover Not Entirely Impressed
I bought model 6585 brand new and for the most part, have not had any serious problems with it. There are a couple things though, that I will know to look for in a future vacuum. The cord on this model comes out the bottom at the back. I'm always stepping on it when vacuuming. I've had a bit of an issue with getting the turbo brush to work consistently. I have a long-haired cat and it would come in handy on the couch, if only it would work ALL the time. I also wish the hose stretched a bit easier and longer. I'm always tipping the vacuum over when using the attachments. I highly suggest you clean the filters and foam ring (not sure what it's called) often or else the vacuum will start to stink. When the filters and such are maintained, the vacuum has great suction and works decent for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tracy Something about it just STINKS!
Was loving my vacuum until we emptied the container that holds all the dust and hair. Rinsed it out with warm soapy water and every since then everytime I go yo use it it stinks to high horribly. It smells like major mildew. I've tried replacing the filter, lysoling it for days but nothing. It makes my entire house smell horrible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BoyElroy PowerForce Turbo Vacuum Model # 6585
In 2009 when my old vacuum needed to be serviced and the repairs would have exceeded the cost of a new one, I decided to purchase the PowerForce Turbo by Bissell. My old vacuum was a bag type and worked quite well but I have a dog and it filled the bags up pretty quickly so I wanted a bagless as a replacement vacuum. I was not disappointed, the PowerForce Turbo Vacuum out performs my old bagged vacuum and there are no expensive bags to replace. I have no issues with this product and it is still running strong. I could not be more pleased. This vacuum is great for everyday floor cleaning, but now with the addition of a second dog I think that it is time to upgrade possibly to a Total Floor Pet Vacuum and keep the PowerForce as a backup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by n.bouhmout great great great
I have had this for about 2 years in 2 seperate homes. The amount of dirt this bad boy sucked up after my other vacuum after I brought it home was fantastic. I use it every other day and it picks up so much. It has also taken a beating from my son. My son crawls on it, he used to topple it over and play with the extras on it. It's been durable. I love the attachments especially the rotating brush for my couch.

This was a good machine until 2012 when it became so loud and noisy while in use, so loud need hearing protection. Took to repair service and they refused service, said waste of time to repair. I really liked this machine for the pet hair as I have 2 longhaired dogs, it worked great with their sheds on carpet as well as furniture. It still has suction, however it is just way too loud.

I had my Bissell for years and it had a lot of use ! When it finally gave out we had just finished putting up the Christmas tree (quiet a mess) of course, we had family coming over so I ran to get another. There wasn't one in my budget range so I purchased another brand, from the first use and still now (months later) I DO NOT like it !!! I miss my Bissell !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucy Almost perfect
I had a home with vinyl floors and only two rugs, on which i used another brand with a disposable bag.
We saw this in walmart for fifty nine dollars and thought we would treat ourselves to new vac. I was more than amazed at the pet hair and dust this picked up on a rug i had just vacuumed the evening before.
We moved to a house totally carpeted and I use it every day... Unbelievable the dog hair etc it picks up.
I agree with another poster... If you don't line up the parts after cleaning them, dust escapes and its like a mini sandstorm... So now i take my time to put back together.
Unfortunateltpy, because of the amount of dust it picks up, i feel i have to wash the sponge filter every four days. Small price to pay, buy wish it was not necessary.
Also, if you wash the round pleated filter make absolutely sure it is dry right to the centre before putting back in machine.
I give it a nine out if ten for perfirmance, and eleven out of ten for the price,

Rated 1 out of 5 by NME This Bissell is the worst one to buy!
I have always preferred Bissell brand over any other. When this new version of the bag less came out I ran right out and bought it to use in my new home. As time passed, I started noticing the dust in the house was extreme and getting worse. Turns out after replacing furnace filters and buying air cleaners, that my Bissell PowerForce Turbo Vacuum was not sealing properly and was picking up bigger stuff but blowing the fine dust out into the air. I am so frustrated with this vacuum! If I could rate it a ZERO I would! I since have went and replaced this model with an older style one and have noticed a significant difference in my dust problem. DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS VACUUM!!!!!!!

ive had my bissell turbo for almost 4 years and sadly it died today :( i have 2 children, 1 husky, and a long haired cat! I have never had a vac as amazing as this one, not only does it clean up the dog hair in one shot, i was amazed when i first started using it at the lose powder in the canister ( which was from the deep down of my carpet) i have never seen something work so well, I am now looking forward to owning my second bissell product

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dennis Well priced vacuum!
Right away it had better suction power than my old expensive upright bag vacuum cleaner and it was much lighter, but the foot pedal broke right away that tilts the handle back i found out that it was very thin and i heard they break very easy so it won't stay upright when it's put away other than that it's a great vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by viva923 Does an great job
Have owned this vac for about 3 months. It works hard to get the carpets clean. It is lightweight which is what I was looking for. It does great on carpeting and some non carpet floors (hardwood). The suction with using the hose is so-so.
All in all, this is a good vac for cleaning the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweetheart143 I am in love with my vacuum!
This vacuum is amazing. I have gone through a lot of vacuum's that always seem to have the same problems... Not enough suction, Doesn't pick up pet fur, expensive bag refills, breaks too soon.
I have had my Powerforce for over a year and I can't say enough about it. Being able to clean the parts instead of buying new bags has been simple and easy. After a few times I just rinse them out, set them to dry, and place them back in for the next time.
The pet hair tool works terrific on my furniture, carpet, and stuffed animals. All the tools work great and store and un-store easily.
The belt on my vacuum just recently broke. The service on the Bissell website was fast and easy and I can't wait for the part to come in so I can enjoy my Powerforce once again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katie53 More powerful than my other two Bissells
I did not buy this vacuum, but got it from a friend when he died. I has two other Bissell vacuums, but this one is more powerful and quiet. My husband does not like a loud vacuum. I just purchased combo pack of filters, so I can rotate filters. Customer service was so helpful and I would rather purchase online (or call) before I would purchase in the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweeper~one Product has good features
After reading some reviews I've learned a few things. Like the filters are washable, One is not. My problem is I've lost the Instructions, and don't know the different filters.
The Unit does need to be cleaned based on what I've read here. Have had some suction loss in the hose & the turbo-brush is not functioning.
Can you lead me to a website that has the Manual/cleaning instructions? Thanks alot!
A clean sweep!S

Bought this vacuum after our last one died. Which we owned for 8 years. We loved it and abused it with vacuuming every day. So I bought an other one, 4 months ago. The motor has already giving out and the bad thing is I dont have the original box or paper work now. so now I am out the 60 buck. wont buy another.

I have had the same vacuum for almost 3 years. About a year ago I had started having problems with the belt breaking and my vacuum smoking. I got in touch with Bissell and found out that I was buying the wrong brand of belts. They came from Walmart but, were not Bissell Brand so they were breaking all the time and I was buying new ones once a month. Having problems with your belt? Contact Bissell...they helped ...no problems since...I love my vacuum.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CRK0910 last time I buy this vacuum
I bought this vacuum about a year ago, for some reason, after around 8 months of use, the brush stopped turning and burned through the belt. I took it all apart, cleaned it, replaced the belt and nothing, the brush wouldn't turn. I really liked this vacuum because with 3 dogs and 2 cats, it seemed to get everything up and I could use it on carpet and hard floors with no issues. So I trashed the first one and my husband got another one. Only this time, it has lasted maybe 4 months. While I was using the hose, the vacuum started to smoke. It was becasue the brush stopped turning AGAIN and was burning through and snapped the belt, AGAIN! We let it cool down, took it apart, cleaned it of hair, dust dirt, ect, replaced the belt and the brush still won't turn...at all! I've never had this many issues with a vacuum. And I take care of my vacuums. I use it everyday due to animals and allergies, I clean the filters every day. I would not recommend this vacuum to anyone. Spend a little extra and get something that will work longer then a few months.

We bought this vacuum in October 2011. When I first started using it the suction was great until you used the handheld components. They barely sucked up anything. I attributed this to "paying for what I got". At least the actual vacuum worked! This morning as I went to vacuum my furniture, I pulled the hose out, turned on the vacuum and the suction was amazing on the attachment!!!! But as I went back to vacuum the floor there was no suction. It's as if the vacuum can't switch from handheld to floor option. HELP!

This vacuum does a great job on the carpet. I am new to bagless and one thing I notice is the noise level. I don't think there is anything wrong with the vacuum but I have a feeling it is loud because that is something that occurs with bagless designs. I where ear plugs when I vacuum. Comments are appreciated.
