Rated 2 out of 5 by Dred73 Great product BUT.......
My wife bought the Bissell Advanced Pet Vacuum with Lift-off Technology early this year or late last year. We love Bissell vacuums and when our last one stopped suctioning, instead of fixing it like I normally would, we made that as an excuse to buy one, well, actually it was my wife's excuse to try out the bagless with lift-off capability in order to vacuum properly the stairs.
PROS: great suction, our carpet is medium thick but we were amazed how much dirt was collected from one room!; easy to use, not to heavy on the wrist around corners.
CONS: hose is not that stretchable so it falls easily. The on/off button stopped working suddenly.
It would have received a 4-5 star from us Bissell lovers except for the hose and the start button. What's up with that button Bissell? After years of trusting your product, we're kinda thinking of checking on other brands......

Rated 1 out of 5 by ss22 Poor design, bad product
Vacuum not compatible with pet hair. Hair wraps around the spindle and spins the belt right off. I replaced the belt 8x attempting to vacuum one room. Replacement belts do not fix the problem.
Even if the belt worked, the product would receive only 2-3 stars from me because of the poor design of the lift-off and hose. The hose doesn't stretch like you need it to, therefore it is necessary to buy two additional wands to make it marginally functional. You still have to keep either a foot or a hand on the lift-off because without a stretchy hose, the thing falls over on you.
Would not purchase again. Would not recommend. Very poor design. Disappointed.

I bought one last August for my mother in law. The brush stopped spinning in less then 6 months. When I went to get it repaired, they couldn't fix it, so I was sent a new unit. The new unit brush stopped working in a month. Sending this one back for a refund. I am not pleased at all with product.

Works OK not great. Suction not as good as other vacuums I have had. Good price, easy lift off, easy to empty. Flexible Extension wand does not fit tightly, just falls off, so it is useless.
Sorry I gave my old vacuums to my kids. My father was in the small appliance business for many years and I have had every brand and/or type of vacuum you can imagine. This one did not impress me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AJ These reviews are helpful in making buying decision
After reading the reviews I have decided not to purchase the PowerGlide Pet Vacuum with Lift-Off Technology. I have a Bissell Carpet clearer unit and love it and was considering a new vacuum cleaner and looked at this one. The reviews played a big part in my deciding not to purchase this machine.

It has a lot of suction power and it's great to vaccuum the stairs and the car with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by cody99645 Worthless, belt will not stay on the brush
Can I give zero stars? I have never purchased a product so completely worthless in my life. Directly out of the box, and I have not been able to use the vacuum for longer than 5 minutes without the belt falling off the brush. I had to disassemble the bottom cover and reattach the belt three times just to finish vacuuming one small bedroom. This vacuum is getting boxed up and returned ASAP.
