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.

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.

Picks up cat hair wonderfully. With five cats and a small condo I can definitely recommend it. Also has an easy to empty container, which is what I like about Bissell products.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MomD Very impressed with this vacuum
I couldn't believe I won something but I'm sure glad I did! This vacuum is very light weight and handles great. Tested head to head with my expensive pet vacuum it did an even better job of pulling the dander and hair of the three large dogs who live in this house out of the carpet. The only downside is the debris container is much smaller and needs to be emptied so much more. It also handles much better on bare floor. I have a stick vac that I use for the vinyl areas as my other vac is too heavy. My other vac is now relegated to the hall closet and I have passed the stick vac on to my mom! I'm an all Bissell house now!

This is an easy to use vacuum that works great on bare floors and carpet. I really like the easy disconnect canister and hose for use on the carpeted stairs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KarlaL love this
My review is 90% positive. Firstly, this thing really picks up the dirt. I vacuumed 1st with my old vacuum, then with this. wow! I could not believe the stuff left behind. I love that you don't have to buy bags, but the lever to open the dirt canister is on the bottom, which makes emptying a little awkward, really should be on the top like the dyson.
Secondly, for this price point, more tools should be included. Not much you can do with just a crevice tool and pet tool. I think most people would want at least the bare floor tool and extension tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DesignGal96 Wonderfully portable model that is easy to use
I had been long overdue for a new vacuum cleaner, and with two pets in the house I needed one that could keep up with the pet hair. This model is smaller than what I previously used, but this ended up being a great advantage towards getting into some tighter spaces. I also love that I no longer have to buy bags or wonder if the vacuum is full. But I think my favorite feature is how fast and easy it is to switch from regular sweeping to using an attachment. The only negative I have at all would be that I wish the assembly photos had been a bit clearer. It ended up being an easy assembly, but the graphics were not clear and it was difficult to view where the various parts were to go. Thankfully, there weren't very many to assemble and I was able to figure it out rather easily anyway. Between this vacuum and my new carpet cleaner my floors have never looked better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stay at home mama! Gross!
I received my new vacuum last week and immediately put it together...I was so excited. I had had my old bag vacuum for the past 12 years I thought it was time for a new one! I have 2 kids and 2 dogs. After much research on the Bissell web site I decided to go with this one! What sold me was the Lift-Off. I have stairs and thought I would also use it in my cars. After setting up the new vacuum I couldn't wait to use it! I vacuumed every rug and carpet in my house. All I can say is GROSS! I could not believe what I saw in the canister! Just after vacuuming 2 throw rugs I had to empty it! I really felt like I must have been not cleaning the carpets very well with the old vacuum. My husband vacuumed his car and also thought it worked great. Very easy to empty and carry the Lift-Off, it even sits up by itself! Well worth the money!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lin Great Suction Better Than Dyson
Easy to use. Not hard to push. Really gets up the deep down dirt. Better than our Dyson that I took back. Like being able lift off part of the vacuum to clean steps. Good on hardwood.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Todd, Stay-at-home-Dad Some great features, some poor features
This new vacuum has great suction overall. Great on couches, furniture and all floors. Love the bagless canister and the power buttons for using the brush or not. It is versatile and the Lift-Off function is great. The empty button on top is nice too, easy to empty.
Downsides in my opinion, it is heavy than I expected. The Lift-Off is great but the canister is not very light to walk around with. I concur will several others that the cord is in a horrible place. To have to bend over each time to unravel or to pick it up just to use is poor design. The base needs a lever to lock into place, when in upright position, if you run over any edges/bumps, it falls. Lastly, does not get edges as well as hoped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pet clean tastic Great Vacuum!!!
I was looking for a lighter weight vacuum that could really do the job of large vac. I was very happy on how easy it was to assemble. I have 2 cats & 1 dog & the rubber hand tool took the fur right of the couch! I used to have to vacuum & tape roller it. I am very delighted with this purchase & highly recommend it!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deb THE BEST SUCTION
Great suction and reaches farther under furniture that any other brand I every used. I have the other cyclone pet vacuum and when I received this vacuum I purposely swept with the other first and then with this Bissell power glide pet vacuum. I was shocked at how much additional dog hair was picked up the second time by this powerful vacuum, the canister had just as much hair in it as the first vacuuming. The suction felt much stronger. The lift off canister made seeping stairs much easier. The only draw back is the placement of the cord, I have to hold it when vacuuming to keep it out of the way, but where the cord is at makes the lift off possible. I already recommended it to my family, who also have pets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kris wonderful
I have 3 cats and its hard to keep my couches clean. With the lift off feature this vacuum makes it easy to clean them. It swivels around the furniture easily. Its so lightweight that my 2 yr old loves to act like shes helping mommy. The only con is where you push down on the base with your foot instead of a lever. I prefer the lever. Other than that its awesome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DMP55 A good choice for a lightweight yet powerful vacuum!
This PowerGlide beats all of the lighter weight vaccums . The lift off is fantastic for doing steps. The suction is powerful for pet owners. The only thing I did not like was the control of the swivel steering. It reminded me of trying to ride a bike with crooked handle bars. It was really hard to control the vacuum on rugs. If Bissell could adjust the steering this would definitely have an excellent rating from me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by soundwave 206 This is by far the best that Bissell has made, now if they will make a powerteam bagless canister, like the digpro
I have to say, I was not a huge fan of Bissell in the past, I had gone through three uprights , the handles where weak and cheap,plus they did not groom the carpet . So i went with Hoover which i still have and I do like it. My Friend let me use their new bissell, I really like this new model from bissell ,I love the pod to clean your car, ect. I would like to say it does deep clean the carpet. lift's the nap of the carpet,
I have to list the cons as well, Not all the tool will store on the vacuum , So you still have to go back and forth to get the tool you need, Second I do wish it had a carpet height on it, I like to set the nozzle height where I want it, Thrid I wish it had a light , Fourth I would love to see a newer model that has a ele powerhead that you attach to the wand for cleaning under beds, ( not a Air driven thing , but a real ele powerhead that can be used in the pod model.) The upright will not go under beds, the way it is now, So may your team can make a thrid model with these items.
I also have to say I would love to see Bissell make a brand New bagless canister like Digpro , but in Bagless. If you would make one like that,. I would buy them both in a hartbeat, again this New upright is great, better than the cheap ones in the past, just make these changes and add the new canister , Im sold / please let me know .
Please work on these new models, because if you do I would give my hoover up in a hartbeat. for both of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by spoon IT HAS THE POWER
Have been using the power glide for 3 weeks now.Wanted to give it time to be sure before I did my review.This vacuum with brush roller on will pull you.You dont have to push very little to get the job done.Large dirt tank means less trips to dump it.And it steers like it has power steering in a vehicle.And also bumper guards as well.To protect your investment.In a tight spot just push the button and go to that tiny spot in the corner.This bissell has amazed me well built and powerful. Comparing this vacuum to my old you no the one that is purple and also never loses suction.Both are powerful.But this one has wider width and the take and go feature is a nice change.Less difficult to clean and maintain and less trips to empty the dirt tank. Excellent vacuum for pet owners. And busy people on the go to get the job done faster.
