Wish I had tried it out before I bought it. It has great suction but that is it. I am in a wheelchair it is hard with the hose being so short the vacuum is continually falling on my legs. Really wish it had a brush attachment. Doubt that I will be buying another.

After using this vacuum for awhile I really like it. The best part for me is that you can unhook it from its base and carry it up the stairs, clean the windows of all the lady bugs,stinkbugs and flies that are attracted to that side of the house. It is two vacuums in one - full size and mini-vacuum for those small jobs where you do not need to lug the full size around. the swivel head is also great. The dog and cat do not like it but who cares.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cummicm LEFT HANDERS BEWARE
This vacuum is very awkward to use for a left hander. I don't think I've ever used a product that I couldn't make work until now. Not only is the on/off switch on the wrong side, but the base tilt is in a hard to reach area. On future models, I would like to see it moved to a central location, making it easy to use for both left/right hand users. One last feature I do not care for is the hose. It only comes with one crevice tool, which does not give it the length it needs to perform simple tasks.
This vacuum does have good suction and the swivel base is a plus but I have a hard time recommending it based on the above comments.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Happyd Expectations not completely met
I have purchased a total of 4 Bissell Lift-off type vacuums. This PowerGlide is my fourth. Although I like the fact that the vacuum is lightweight and swivels on corners, there are some features that need some improvements. Here are some things that would make this vacuum better:
- A light in the front to help when steering under furnishings,
- A longer hose (and all models should come with an extension piece) I am short and cannot reach higher sections of my home because the hose is not long enough,
-The cord holder at the top of the handle does not hold the cord well often picking it up and hooking it back.
- We should be able to lock the swivel mechanism. In larger rooms my arm gets fatigued trying to keep the canister straight.
This vacuum has great suction and does a nice job. I like the one-handed canister cleaning. I have always loved the fact that I can clean my vacuum's parts. I also like the smaller head on the base. It is easier to get around furnishings when I am in a rush and cannot move everything. Overall it is nice vacuum, it still needs some minor fixes to make it perfect.

Bought this product in April 2014. It is very light weight compared to my other Bissell and the suction is great. Gets up pet hair very well. I like the detachable canister, it makes it easy for doing the stairs. So for, it does what Bissell says it will do. I Would recommend it if looking for a new vacuum.

I previously had another brand of expensive, Pet Vacuum. It did a pretty good job or so I thought. It wasn't suctioning anymore and since I already own a Bissell Steam Cleaner (my second one in 15 years; I love them!) I decided I wanted a Bissell Brand Vacuum. I was at Sam's Club and spotted this one. I am so glad I purchased it. It's amazing light-weight, but oh so powerful. When I did my first pass on my living room and mastersuite, the canister was almost FULL!!! I could not believe it! My daughter vacuumed the house with it a few days later and noticed the same thing. This vacuum is finding dirt that has been in my carpet since the beginning of time! It is the best purchase I ever made and highly recommend it. It was easy to put together out of the box and has a great assortment of accessories. Thank you Bissell for once again meeting and exceeding my expectations!
