Rated 3 out of 5 by Sassy61 Good Vacuum Hate the swivel
Got this a couple of weeks ago. Love the vacuum but hate the swivel. It always falls to the left and is very hard to keep straight. My 78 yr old mother would never be able to handle this vacuum. Very heavy and does not steer well at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Barnum Poorly designed
Bought this about three weeks ago from Target, and it was quickly clear to me that no one at Bissell had ever "field tested" it (for lack or a better word or term).
The cord is on the left, gets in the way. It's not flexible at all and the wind up area is much too low. Likewise the notch that holds the cord out of the way is not large enough and the cord keeps falling out.
Next the step lever on the base is not convenient at all and too far forward. My biggest complaint? When I disconnect the canister to vacuum the steps they do not supply an extension rod and you have to bend over to do them. I have a bad back and this just aggravates it even more.
Next it hard to push and our carpet is old and worn. Cannot imagine what it's like using it on a new carpet with higher fibers.
The previous Bissell I had was great and the reason I bought this. Next time around I will look more at the other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emma28 Three Large Dogs Makes For a Lot of Fur Clean-up
My husband and I were looking for a reliable pet vacuum and we decided on the Deluxe Pet Vacuum. One thing that sold both of us was the Lift-Off technology allowing us to use the canister on the stairs and also to vacuum out the car after taking the dogs to the park. We have two Golden Retrievers and a German Shepard and they can shed a lot!
This vacuum is awesome! It picked up pet hair that our old vacuum missed and it was so easy to switch from carpet, to tile, to hardwood floors. I do have to vacuum every day, but it's actually enjoyable with this vacuum. The Pet Eraser is also easy to use on the couches and the stairs. Will definitely recommend this vacuum to our pet loving friends!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ches36 Great vacuum except for.
I just purchased a powerglide liftoff,awesome performance,and cool cool innovations my favorite one being the option to turn off the brush to clean wood floors.I was disappointed with the lack of tools provided.For the price I paid,there should have been at least an extension included.Besides that,great vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SueR. Love my new Powerglide!
I've had my new Powerglide for just over a month and love it! We have two large dogs so keeping up on the loose hair is a never ending task. Since our floors are a mix of hardwood and carpet the Powerglide and its features make cleaning both surfaces a breeze. I highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GalSal Oh! If only this had been available while raising 5 boys!
This vacuum has made my condo carpet look like it was just
put down seven years ago. I have been wishing for a way to take better care of the carpet. Now, I wish we had had it for cleaning with five boys at home along with their cats and dogs.

used this 3 times and the belt has slipped off every time I have used it within 5 minutes. Will be returning to Lowes for a refund.
