Rated 5 out of 5 by DeeDee This Vacuum glides easily
I had a minor stroke a year ago & our old vaccum became very hard for me to use. We bought the Bissell PowerForce at our local retailer & I'm so pleased with it. I have no problem pushing it on our carpets, it glides so easily. I'm able to put the attachments together and pull apart easily for along the baseboards in the rooms with hardwood floors, even on days that my muscles aren't cooperating. I was so thrilled with my vaccuum, we went and bought one for my mother who had knee replacement surgery and bought us another one for upstairs! We did however have to replace the roller in our first vaccuum, but it could be due to going from carpet to hardwood throughout our home. I would still highly recommend this sweeper! :) I also own a Bissell Carpet Cleaner and everyone borrows it! Guess that says how great it works too! Thank you Bissell!

Rated 1 out of 5 by frugal waste of money
dont throw good money at this machine. It did not last at all blows dirt and doesn't suck dirt up at all. I bought at wal-mart. Its just a big ball of plastic now. Not even worth the repair. Just save your money and get a high quality vacuum at sears.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tuscansmom blows dirt everywhere!!!!
This vacuum does not work beyond 4 months. even with a brand new bag, it blows dirt and particles everywhere. It ruins my whole day. So frustrating. I just want a vacuum that works!!!!!!!! Ive resorted to using a broom on the carpets because, at least I get the big pieces up. When it did work...briefly, the attachment hose would fall out constantly blowing stuff everywhere!!!!! so annoying!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flipwags Best vacuum in 55 years!!!!!!!
Who knows how many vacs I have owned in 55 years, but I would buy this one for the next 55. Hope they don't quit making it. Never heard a vac so quiet ... first thought something was wrong. It didn't sound like a jet. Easy push and raises nap like new. Large bag capacity - bagless vacs are too much maintenance, too messy and way over rated. This is simple with no frills - it just does what it is supposed to. For $40+, it is a steal.

This product only lasted 2 months longer than the warranty which is very disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Queen I would buy it again
I know this vac does not have the bells and whistles like others but I wanted a bag vac. I am not spending my time on filters to wash and dry. I take the bag out and put another in. It has great suction and I'm very happy not spending so much money . I'm going on 2 years now. Thanks Bissell

Rated 5 out of 5 by property manager 808 Great vac
I purchased this vac at Walmart, because it was inexpensive from a name brand. It served me well over 4 years in a rental building used and abused by many users. The only drawback is that it needs to be taken apart sometimes to clean it out, but bissel made it easy to do. I have the bag-less version for home use now over 5 years no problems!

Rated 2 out of 5 by jhmiller Can't unclog
When I purchased did not have dogs.
Now I have two and the Bissell does okay on the dog hair.
My problem is that the two vacuums I have, both are clogged with dog hair.
It seems the only way to totally unclogged is to take the vacuum apart, which I don't want to do, since it may not got back together correctly then it becomes useless.
