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.

I can't get the tools to work. Was going to use my vacuum to clean my dryer and it there is no suction? I have the bissell power force can't fine a model number or anything. I'm sure there is just some silly switch I can't find.

I have been looking every were for a good priced bagged vacuum that can clean up cat litter and the mess my child leaves behind when I found this one I was impressed at the price and the cleaning power it has my carpets look like new it picks up the tracked cat litter with ease and cleans up all the messes my child throws its way I like the hose and simplicity of this product if it dies or just stops working I will buy another one just like it
The only feature I wish it had was an option to turn the beater brush off so I can clean the kitchen and bathrooms better

Rated 1 out of 5 by Frustrated cleaner This product USED to be #1
I think the quality has significantly dropped. The hose NEVER stays attached (unless its attached to your leg like the neighbors annoying dog)and this is very frustrating. I used to highly recommend this vac but no longer do. I clean for a living and will definitely shop for a different vac.please I'm begging you, FIX THE HOSE!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Heyjules PowerForce Bagged Vacuum
Well, I got stupid and gave up my 2 previous PowerForce Bagged Vacuums for, you guessed it, a really expensive well-known brand where they come to your door to sell. Bad move. So, after a couple years of dealing with this very, very heavy sweeper with no onboard attachments (you have to dismantle the front to add the attachments), I finally had had enough and bought another Bissell. These are great!! The Bissell is very light, easy to carry up/down stairs, and the onboard attachments make all the difference. I am happy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by father of 7 great value, good performance
We've had it and used it extensively for the past 10 years. It works great. Bags keep the dust down... I wouldn't buy another bagless any time soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Karen 62 Great Vacuum!
I was in desperate need of a good , powerful vacuum cleaner. The one that I had would not pick up the sand and dust that accumulates on our floors. I received my Bissell for Christmas this year 2013! and I am amazed and pleased at the job it is doing! It makes cleaning fun again! so far so good! It is a great vacuum!

This is a great affordable vacuum. It is lightweight & does a great job cleaning up after my 3 cats. The suction hose comes loose often even though I push on it as hard as I can. I only say this in hopes that Bissell will fix that in the next model. This vacuum has out-performed my more expensive vacuum and then some.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Elizabeth Powerforce vacuum
This is the worst vacuum I have ever bought. Through the years I have purchased this vacuum over and over because of cost not because I was a fan; and every Bissel that I owned the release lever on the vacuum would break. Today, I had to go out and purchase another vacuum because the power switch broke this time around. I only gave it one star because the paint held up well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lisa ATL Pet hair clean up vacuum
This is our third version of the vacuum. We like the suction and the ease of movement. I would like a longer cord. The suction hose tends to come off randomly while vacuuming sucking my shoes or pant leg. If this could be fixed, it would be a great vacuuming experience.

I love my vacuum. One of the best investments I ever made. With the Burber carpet and my hardwood floors, it picks up everything. The only thing I had a problem is with finding a bag at the Wal-mart in Pensacola, Fl.- Mobile Hwy. Had to order them on line. They were here in three days! Thank you Bissell!

After my old vacuum died out , I went to Walmart looking for an economical replacement. Having two cats in the house, I'd become accustomed to using duct tape and a brush to remove remaining cat hairs from rug and furniture after vacuuming. I was overjoyed and grateful at how well my new Bissell sucked that cat hair right up. BISSELL, thank you! The only problem that I had was keeping the extension rod connected. Despite this
minor inconvenience, this vacuum produces great results. I would definitely recommend it.

I had a big mess to clean up and didn't want to use my "good" machine. I ran out to a discount store and got this remanufactured one. To be honest, I was shocked at how efficient it was. It's perfect for my needs. I use it for daily straighten ups. I've had it for about 7 months. I love this little giant!

I have had owned my vacuum for 2-3 years now. Aside from an enormous clog I had to deal with, it is still running and still the best vacuum I have owned. It hasn't even broken a belt yet! I'm impressed, and as long as Walmart carries them, I will be buying it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CZPaul Oh what a value...
I just wanted a cheap vaccum cleaner for cob webs in the basement and the cat's area. At $40 at WalMart, I was so impressed with the first one I bought another for the main floor and one for the office. I've always hated the cyclonics because cleaning the containers can be discusting and just more work. Going back to the "classic" bag style is all I needed-remove it and tape over the hole and into the trash. Simple, no clean up. Only issue is the somewhat short cord and its tendancy to fall over.

I was looking for and inexpensive vacuum with a bag. Anyone that is a bird lover knows how much dust (dander) a feathered friend can make in one day. With the bag I don't have to clean out the sweeper every three day, with the leaf blower. Recommend buying unscented bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by petowner Pretty great for a carpet for a cheap vacuum
I am on my third one of these. They do tend to break with heavy use after 2-3 years, but they are so economical and do a decent job. I like that it is lightweight and really great on carpets, even with pet hair, and I like the bag. I always hated emptying a dusty cartridge. My main trouble is that it's pretty useless on hard surface floors - it will definitely just blow around the dirt vs sucking it up, even on the lowest pile setting. I usually sweep and then suck it up with the crevice tool. The first thing to go is typically the plastic piece that locks the vacuum upright allowing it to stand on its own, then various other pieces of plastic. The vacuums tend to remain functional in spite of that, you just have to lean it against the wall. The cord length has become shorter with every newer model, which is a pain. Wasn't so bad in a smaller house, but now it gets on my nerves.

This product is not very sturdy, it falls over when using hose with tools. Dust is escaping. I would like to upgrade to a better quality allergenic bagless vacuum. I would appreciate your assistance in upgrade replacement

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cupcake69 Not So Quiet
My personal opinion, there isn't a product out there, that might get a 5-star. Some where in the future, of owning this product it's going to fail, in one format or another.
I will say, the product, at this juncture, appears to be doing the job, as efficient as it says it will.
I like the reality, that it is light weight. Easy to push around, and if I have to use the extensions to get up high, the unit can be lifted to add additional extensions.
I think it's a good product, for the money. I looked at many, including the more expensive machines, and asked myself, why pay anything above $100, just because of a Name.
Vacuums - is what it is. Many machines are over-rated. This one seems to come through. Only had this machine for a few weeks, and so far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ladybug Ease of use.
I never like to vacuum so I keep buying cleaners but this one is the easiest for me to use and to store. I have paid 6 times this price for vacuums that were too difficult for me to use. I am 79 years old and dragging around a heavy canister or emptying a bag less one, proved too labor intensive.
I went back to this Bissell because of it's ease of use, and convenient access to the tools. This is the second one that I have purchased . I had given the first to my daughter and she used it until it would no longer stand upright, so she donated it to Goodwill and lamented that she missed it and regretted that donation. I had given her the expensive canister and the bag less ones, that I no longer wanted. I guess I should buy her another Bissell. This is a great value at a very reasonable price. I don't need the bells and whistles that are promoted on the more expensive models.
