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.

Best vacuum I have ever had. The lift off center for vacuuming cob webs and tops of furniture and fans is amazing. Maneuvers well and I am able to get in between furniture with this vacuum. Love it!! By the way, I love my Bissell sweeper and Rug shampooer as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeanette5 Excellent for the price
Vacuum has great suction on both carpets & tile floors. My dog sheds alot. Swivel head is small enough to go right under my dining room chairs, etc. The pet tool attachment works great can even use it on my bedspreads as it does not tear it up. I did order the extension wand which is a must but wish it was much longer. The dusting tool is a waste of money-you can only use it on flat surfaces. Bissell needs to add a regular dusting attachment. Plus they donate money to animals! Love that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by john worked well for 2 uses
Was hesitant to buy this but read reviews and didn't want to spend a lot of money on a dyson. At first the vacuum was great did what i needed it to. However the third use it started to stop sucking, the motor gets very hot. Will have to take it to one of the reputable dealers shown on the website but not really happy about this inconvenience. I guess you get what you pay for

Rated 2 out of 5 by Erin Would like to return it!
This gets 1 star for the pet hair attachment, I would give this attachment 5 stars on its own!
It gets another star for suction, however the suction is also the reason I can't stand using it. When you remove the lift off to use the hose the suction is so strong that it sucks the hose in, making it really short. You either only go as far as you can reach while holding the Liftoff or you let the Liftoff dangle and flop all over the place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by siouxzan Blows expensive big "D" vacuum out of the water!
This thing is great! I have had the "D" brand for several years paid big bucks for it. This little Bissell was $149 bucks on sale and I can't believe the stuff it is picking up after using the other vac…The collection bin is much easier to clean out. The dog hair gets caught up inside the other vac and you have to use a wire or something to reach up into it to pull it out. Your hands are filthy after that procedure. This vac sucks all the dog hair from under the front of the kitchen cabinets without having to go back and use the hose attachment like someone else's vac.
It has so much suction it is ridiculous. This vac makes you want to use it. The lift off bin is great for the stairs.
Only thing I think I would improve is it needs another extension tube for the hose tool it is a little short,but overall. It is great

Rated 5 out of 5 by Travelynne1 First BISSELL-very impressed!
I am hard on my vacuums. I cannot believe how easy this vacuum maneuvers. I like that you can use the brushes or not. I wasn't sure I wanted a bag less but after vacuuming one room and having to empty it (yes it picked up that much in one of my rooms (embarrassing!)) I could not believe how easy it was to empty! I will never use a bag again. I also LOVE the lift off feature and I use the pet tool on the stairs! This was the whole reason I wanted the lift off! There is a clip for the cord which has always annoyed me on my old vacuum. It does not have a retractable cord but I have not had a vacuum with a retractable cord in a long time and I knew that when I bought it. I have no complaints! I love when a product makes you want to CLEAN your house! Cleaning the upstairs and the dog's area today! yikes!! I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by stevedex What a difference
I just vacuumed my carpets with my old upright and received my new Bissell vacuum, I could not believe how much stuff the new Bissell sucked out of my carpets. I must have emptied the new vacuum eight times. Fantastic vacuum for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kay22 Nice, but some drawbacks
I owned this vacuum for less than one week when the clip broke that holds the pet turbo brush. The brush came apart and I was not able to get it back together again. I was cleaning up needles under the Christmas tree using just the hose when the vacuum tipped over on my wood floor. Fortunately I was able to get replacement parts. But the design of the hose is the problem. It is stiff and doesn't easily extend or stay extended enough to use. I have this problem with the lift off section also. It almost requires a third hand.
The suction is great for my carpet. I like the ability to turn off the beater brush and clean the wood floors.
The cord could be longer. When you attach it to the cord clip on the vacuum base you lose about two feet of cord. If you don't clip it, it is a tripping hazard.
The vacuum head is smaller, but that is good for getting into narrower spaces. The swivel feature is very handy too.
I also would like a separate brush to use on just the stairs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 3CatsRUs Very disappointed
I own a Bissell steam mop that I love which encouraged me to buy the Bissell Deluxe Pet Vacuum. I owned the vacuum 3 weeks and it did a great job of really picking up the cat hair. However this machine is not durable, the brush roll locked onto itself and stopped spinning damaging the housing and breaking the belt. The belt and brush are considered wear parts that I must replace which I could understand if I had used it for 2-3 years, but I have less than 3 hours of total run time. The housing Bissell will replace but I must go to an authorized dealer which is an hour away. I am going to get this fixed and if it happens again I will no longer purchase any products from Bissell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jetsfan This product is a lot of power in a lite vacuum.
I have only owned this vacuum for a couple of weeks now, but I am very impressed with it's power. My family has owned many vacuums over the years even one of the most expensive brand names, and I would have to say so far this is the best we have ever owned. It cleans deep, pet hair, deep down dirt, and today Pine needles from the Christmas tree, which are usually very hard to pick up, I would highly recommend this vacuum to anybody.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lawman154 It does the job as advertised
I ran this sweeper after cleaning twice and shampooing my rugs this past week. I ran it last night and again this morning and got two containers of dirt that a high end cleaner missed last week. I am impressed. The warranty is good and parts are reasonably priced. The only thing it could use is a retractable cord and a floor wand. I knew it didn't have those features when we bought it so that is not a knock. We are going to buy two for our kids today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CJBbear Perfect for pet houses.
Your Bissell PowerGlide Deluxe Pet Vacuum is the best I have ever used. It is lightweight enough, and the suction is incredible. I have 2 cats, and enough cat hair to make a third. The Bissell really gets it out of the carpet, and also takes care of the little messes of litter around their boxes. Emptying is a breeze. Along with the Spot-Bot, my carpets really look good. Thank you for a product that acts as good as the commercials say it does!

Rated 5 out of 5 by doglover1 Sad Story
I have been a Bissell fan for years and tell that to everyone when the subject of vacuums comes up! Even convinced several people at a well known store to buy Bissell when I was in the appliance dept and saw them checking out other brands! I have 3 dogs with long hair and am about to rescue another husky so pet hair is an issue! I got several of my friends to buy this vacuum and they loved it and I saved up for it for the last few months and was so excited to try the new lift off feature to get hair in hard to reach places. 2 days ago my oldest dog got very ill and vet bills ate up my vacuum nest egg! One of my friends is letting me borrow hers til I can save up again tho I am hoping Santa may bring me one! lol But my point is I would rather have to wait til I save up again because Bissell vacuums are worth it...I would not ever buy anything else!

Rated 1 out of 5 by kh07 terrible
After having a Bissell that was amazing for more than 6 years I finally wore it out and was very excited to upgrade to a new machine! We have 2 children and 2 pets so we decided to get a "pet" geared vacuum cleaner. This vacuum cleaner has not performed well at all. After continually cleaning out clogs in the base, the hose, and the plastic filter I finally took it into a repair shop. only 7 months after its purchase, I am bringing it in for its second visit to a repair shop. This vacuum is terrible!! I Do Not recommend purchasing this model!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MilBrook Really Pick Up Dirt!!!
I do love this new vacuum cleaner. I couldn't believe the dirt that was picked up. I love the "lift off" feature making it very easy to clean other than carpets.
I do find it hard to maneuver but that may be because of my arthritis. Otherwise, I'm very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by themomster the best
I have all hardwood floors and area rugs and only needed a vacuum for area rugs. This vacuum is fantastic! It moves easily and smoothly on the floors and it cleans the area rugs without eating the edges or pulling up the rugs. I do think a retractable cord would be nice but not necessary for me. I was frustrated running over the cord since it's at the bottom of the vacuum until I noticed the little hook on the handle to hold it up. And, the long cord is definitely a plus. Another plus is that it's made by a family run business in the USA. I was so pleased with this vacuum, I purchased one of the floor steam cleaners.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Happy Customer Better Vacuum Ever Used but could be better
This is the very good vacuum I have ever used . This is my first Bissell while in USA.It fulfilled all my requirements except following two which can be very easily added to this model.
1. It should have retractable chord. This is very good feature and can be added to this model very easily. The best location is at bottom of lift off.
2. It should have one brush attachment for carpet stairs or for carpet corners. If customer service reads my review, please let me know which one is the best Bissell carpet Stairs attachment that would work with this vacuum. I want to buy separately and do not want to return it , due to this part.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cavalier Early but in love better than my pet Dyson
WOW - I read the reviews & thought well it must be good but I felt really if it's as good as my Dyson I'll be happy. I am getting dirt out of my shag rugs that Dyson has left behind! I bought this for our 2nd home but it works so much better on shag carpet that I hate to take it to the 2nd home. Will take up Dyson to the 2nd home although I like this Bissell much better on stairs & when there's a sale I hope to buy a 2nd Powerglide yep it's that GOOD! Thanks Bissell! & thanks for your pet support both in getting we need good suction for our pets to clean our home, but also in helping shelter pets too. BIG plus is this is NOT as hard to push on my shag as the Dyson, which I dread using, as it hurts my back from the hard pushing I have to employ.
