Rated 3 out of 5 by clarissa I thought it would be wider
so I bought this vacuum on line with out touching and seeing it. I was disappointed in how much smaller the width of the vacuum was. It still operates very well and picks up stuff. I live in a two story house so I have one machine upstairs and one down stairs. I haven't used the lift off technology yet but other wise it is a good machine. it could have a longer cork.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Christina I volunteer to be a tester...
I just purchased my second PowerGlide Pet Vacuum for my camp. I was hoping that since I bought my first one Bissell had made some improvements. I have four large dogs and I vacuum every day. I volunteer to be a tester for Bissell because I have no idea who thought it was a good idea to put such a short hose on it. When I use the lift off and set it on the floor it falls over right away. The hose is so short you have to pull on it and that makes it very hard to use. Also, the belt needs to be improved. I have to take the whole brush out almost every day and place the belt back on the pulley. Another problem is the attachments. They don't all work together. I found that using parts from both vacuums makes my work easier. I like that the vacuum picks up hair but I'm not totally sure they did enough research with "real" people and how they use the vacuum in a normal setting. I purchased another one because I have bought so many extra belts, extensions and brushes that I thought I may as well use them.

All I can say is wow! It's been a long time since I've had a new vacuum and this has been an excellent purchase so far. I'm impressed with the suction power and the simple and functional design. Yes the hose for the attachments could stand to be a bit longer but overall its wonderful, easy to use and really gets the job done with no hassle. Easy to maneuver up the stairs! I am amazed at the amount of dirt, dust and pet hair this thing effortlessly picked up!

I have a Pomeranian and five different domestic cats. Needless to say a vacuum that is effective at picking up pet hair was most important to me! After two weeks of use I have fallen in love with my purchase. My previous vacuum was a canister that required bags. This vacuum is so powerful and has bag-less technology. I was amazed at how much dirt and hair it picks up compared to my previous vacuum. The lift off canister makes it easy to use all of the attachments to clean hard to reach areas. It is also light weight. This was important to me since I have spinal injuries. Most importantly, this vacuum is so affordable in price! I cannot believe how much performance you get for what you pay for. I would highly recommend this vacuum and would purchase it again.

Excellent, light weight and easy to use and OMG it picks up pet hair great I have 3 long hair dogs and the first time was great it pulls up almost all the pet hair from the carpet witch I have never found one to do that before. Would never say I love a vacuum cleaner but this one wins hands down I give it 5 stars for the great work it does.

Do not buy this product if you have a dog that sheds, as hair accumulates where the belt meets the motor and roller. I am on my second machine because of this and just had the belt break again. I was cleaning off the roller after every vacuum and even that did not fully help. Once the new belt arrives, I will have to take the roller completely out after each vacuum to ensure this does not happen again. Wish it was more durable than that, but I cannot afford to buy another vacuum. I have never owned a vacuum that I have to take apart after each use in order for it to not break.

A decent vacuum. Does a good job picking up dog hair and with the bag less feature I no longer get that dog odor that sticks in bag vacuums. One HUGE down fall ive found is it leaves black skid marks on baseboards. I had just painted my entire interior of my house just to mess up the baseboards with this new vacuum. We finally used packing tape on the sides of the base to avoid having to scrub all the black marks off anything you might come in contact with. Bissell needs to fix this problem.
Cord could also be longer...much to short to go from one room to another without having to unplug.
