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.

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!!!

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!!!!!
