Rated 5 out of 5 by gpsac WOW Impressive!
We have owned serveral upright's over the years. A few Bissell's as well as other brands but, this is the first with a removable/portable feature. We also have a Bissell hepa cyclonic upright but, with two dogs and constantly vacuuming, we wanted to try this out with the suction claim in addition to the fact that it is not as wide as our hepa and seemed more manuverable. It is! A lot more manuverable. Easily moving around furniture. Of course we were also intriged with the lift-off feature and its portability. At first vacuuming did seem a little awkward from what we were used to as instead of the motor being in the base, it is a little higher and located at the bottom of the lift-off portion which does give the upper part a slightly heavier feel. Got used to it quickly though. Just like a new car or lawn mower I guess. By far I think what impressed us the most was the INCEDIBLE suction. So much so that it actually seems to pull itself forward even though it is not self propelled. The proof however, is what we see it pull deep from our carpet. Dogs should bathe more often. :)
In a nutshell: Manuverable, portable, POWERFUL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by smc112598 excellent little vacuum
it's surprising that something so light and compact can develop that much power. it does an excellent job on pet hair, and the removable pod is really helpful for stairs and hard to reach areas. I'm very impressed by this product, it does the job of a tradition vacuum cleaner that's much heavier and harder to maneuver.

Rated 4 out of 5 by choirmom11 Great vacuum
I want to start this review off by saying that I have owned both an Oreck upright and a portable vacuum for 13 years, and like them both. I didn't think I would ever switch to another brand.
I have used this vacuum for two weeks, and it's great. The suction on both the upright and lift-off section is unbelievable,
and I can use it on both my carpets and hard surface floors. My only complaint is that it is heavy, I have arthritis in my hands and when I have to carry it upstairs it's heavy. I'm still getting used to the bagless system, on my Oreck there is a self-sealing bag.
I'm thinking of buying one for my daughter who has a dog that sheds a lot.

light weight, easy to lift off for stair cleaning. Only problem I had was with my wrist injury it was hard to keep the vacuum from tilting because of the swivel feature.

Product is compact, easy to use. Picks up long cat hair where other products missed. Works great on any surface. Like the swivel technology and easy-to-use portable feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Havoc's Mama The fur is gone!
Dog hair here, dog hair there, dog hair, dog hair everywhere! Not anymore! The PowerGlide Pet Vacuum has an amazing amount of power, somehow contained in a light, easy-to-use machine. The suction is really strong; I don't have to pass over and over the same spot to get all the pet hair up off the carpet. And I have a large area of tile floor, where the dog hair collects around the edges and in the corners. With the brush turned off, the vacuum got it all. When I needed to reach a low corner, the lift-off canister and wand were easy to take where I needed to go. And easy to put back when I was done.
I especially like the low-profile of the bottom - it reached farther under the couches and cabinets than I've been able to get before.
The Pet-hair wand attachment is amazing. I used it on the stairs, both the vertical and horizontal surfaces, and they looked as clean as if I had steamed them with my Bissel Steamer!
I love my Bissel Steam Cleaner, but I don't think I'll need to use it as often now that I have the Pet Vacuum - it sucks up enough hair and dirt that the house looks clean without steam. If you have pets, I can't recommend this enough. Get it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PWCS PowerGlide® Pet vacuum
This product is terrific! It has incredible suction and this power isn't diminished when using the onboard tools. The lift off feature makes cleaning much easier, more versatile and complete. It does an amazing job when cleaning carpeted steps, much better than any device I have used in the past. The bag less feature lets you see if you have picked up something which may have been lost on the carpet, and it saves money and time on replacement bags. I have several other Bissell products and all are wonderful and make cleaning easier and much more effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LovesAmerica Amazing vacuum
Thank you Bissell, I still can't believe I have won this fantastic vacuum. I've been using my new Bissell vacuum for over a month and it does an AMAZING job getting up pet hair and dirt that's probably been embedded in my carpets for years. Suction power, attachment are all great, it works on all the different floors and fabrics in my house, which is key with two cats and one dog. When I emptied the dirt canister after the first use, it look like I'd vacuumed up half a cat and dog, plus the canister is so easy to empty. After years of struggling to get up both cat and dog hair, this vacuum delivers what it says. You don't have to go over the carpet many times to remove it all. The carpets not only look great after I vacuum but the house smells so much cleaner and fresher too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Graybeard The best we have ever used
We like the PowerGlide Pet Vacuum a great deal, It does an excellent job of picking up dog hair from the carpet and bare floor. It is easy to maneuver and glides quite well. The only thing we feel that could be better is the area where the power cord is stored. There are things close to this area that make winding of the cord cumbersome. If this could be improved we would give the vacuum 5 stars,

Rated 5 out of 5 by gingerlynn Best vacuum we've ever had!
This is the best vacuum that we have ever had. Very easy to assemble. I noticed immediately that this vacuum has great suction. This vacuum deep vacuums my carpet. There was much more dirt picked up and in this canister than my old vacuum ever picked up. Some vacuums will have the filter inside the canister, but with this vacuum, the filters are housed separately in the bottom of the vacuum, not in the canister. I really like this design because it is not as messy to maintain. Emptying the canister is very easy. Love the versatility of being able to remove the canister to vacuum stairs. The attachments included are nice. I really like the built in handle on the vacuum hose. This makes it much more comfortable to vacuum when using the crevice tool or vacuuming stairs. Has a very long power cord to reach multiple rooms without having to change outlets. Absolutely love the swivel steering. Highly recommend this product especially if you have pets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dutch50 Say "goodbye" to pet fur
Off-white carpet and 3 long-haired gray cats just don't mix. I need a powerful vacuum that targets unwanted pet hair on carpets and upholstery and the new Bissell PowerGlide Pet Vacuum delivers.
I love the way the handle tilts to glide the vacuum around corners and the beater-bar on the bottom really works to remove dirt and fur from our carpets. I think the slightly heavier weight of the vacuum adds to the ability of the beater-bar to dig-in instead of just bouncing over the top of our plush pile carpet.
The included upholstery tool is an energy-saver for removing fur from our couches and chairs. I never had it so easy. I don't have any stairs to try out the removable canister, but I'm sure many will appreciate the ease of use of this feature.
My only minor complaint is that the cord holders are so close together that it takes a lot of wrapping to secure the cord in place. However, I do appreciate the longer length of the cord.
Last but definitely not least, this vacuum really has suction! I vacuum every day and sometimes twice a day and this vacuum picked up more material on its first use than my previous vacuum ever had.
I couldn't be more pleased with my new PowerGlide Pet Vacuum. Another great product from Bissell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cengel Found another pets worth of hair in carpet that looked clean.
This was amazing. We moved a couch, so the carpet looked nice an clean. When it was done with the area, there was a ton of pet hair that we didn't even see. And no bag. WONDERFUL!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gramma Great pet hair picker upper
I wanted a vacuum cleaner that could pick up pet hair quickly and easily. I have a large dog and a 9 month old granddaughter who is crawling everywhere. This machine is perfect for my needs and I do not have to worry about pet hair all over her hands and into her mouth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CatLover2 Great for pet hair.
I like the fact that this is a lightweight vacuum. I have arthritis in my back and found I could vacuum painlessly. It transitioned nicely from carpet to hardwood floors and picked up the kitty kibble, didn't spread it around. The pet turbo eraser works great on the cat perch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by clean house The dirty getter
First I would like to say thank you for the vacuum. I just finished vacuuming the house and it did a vary good job. I could move the vacuum with ease and I like the fact that I can get under the kitchen cabinet. I liked the way you can take the unit apart and get the stairs and how you can empty and clean the unit. I had just vacuumed Friday and I picked up a lot of dog hair and dirt, which did surprise me. I would like to see more cord. Maybe 5 feet, and the crevice tool does not stay attached to the vac. I think you should put a extension wand in with each unit. One of the most important facts is I would like to see it made in USA

Rated 5 out of 5 by John64 This vacuum is overall a great product.
The Bissell Power Glide Pet Vacuum cleaner has great features. I am overall impressed with the amount of debris, dog hair and dirt that it picks up. The vacuum is lightweight and easy to use. A must have product especially if you have pets. This vacuum and the easy operation allows you to get into small and tight corners and spaces to get the dirt, debris and dog hairs. The vacuum is lightweight and easy to maneuver. I highly recommend this vacuum cleaner, a great product by Bissell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Three Dogs Bissell PowerGlide Pet Vacuum with Lift-Off Technology
I was amazed how much pet hair was picked up in a short period of time. I cleaned my carpet and was impressed with
the swivel maneuverability. I really liked the Pet TurboEraser Tool. It glided across the upholstery with ease and really picked up the dog hair. It was very convenient to be able to lift the pod off of the base. Over all I was very impressed and pleased with this machine. I also have the SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner and it
does a super job. It is great on urine stains and vomit messes.
You just put it on the spot, start it and sit and wait until it is done.
