Rated 2 out of 5 by lainey disappointed
Thought for the money that this vacuum would be great, but really not so great. You don't get any extension hose so it is worthless because what you have is a mini hose...always got hoses with other brands and this model is not able to connect to my hose extension that I have. Very disappointed since I hav e bought several other Bissell products and paid good money for each...

Rated 1 out of 5 by lae15 The belt issue needs to be fixed!!!!
This works great when the belt stays on. I am not even able to vacuum one room without having to stop, take out the screws, and put the belt back on. After doing that more than five times the first day, I think I will be returning it.
On a side note, I love the lift off feature.

we've had an Orek and a Hoover and, although they were lightweight they seemed to lose suction power in a rather short period of time. We owe a Bissell carpet cleaner, so we thought we'd give the vacuum a shot. we cleaned the living room carpet the day prior to receiving the Bissell and cleaned it again after. we were amazed by the amount of dirt and dog hair , yellow lab hair hides well in beiger carpet beige carpet. time will tell if the Bissell outlasts the others but, if our carpet cleaner is any judge this may be the last vacuum we ever buy.

I have had a few Bissell vacuums and have always been pleased. This one disappointed. For being a pet vacuum like my previous Bissell, it does not preform like I hoped. It clogs up constantly and spits dust out the bottom.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Like clean floors Great suction but belt fell off 1st use
The suction is great, had a Hoover for 1 week, broke on the 2nd time we turned it on, tried this tonight and worked great other than the belt came off after 25 minutes of using it. My husband and to take 7 or 8 screws off to get to the belt, took him another 4 minutes to get the belt attached again, if it continues to come off I will take it back to the store for my money back. I'm not strong enough to replace the belt myself.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Not worth the time to buy DISAPPOINTED...DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME
Brand new sweeper and after 10 minutes use, the belt on the comes off. Don't waste your time on this machine. Others have had the same issue with the belt coming off. One person wrote it takes an hour to put back on and it's come of 3 times within a 2 week period. It's brand new...shouldn't be happening. POOR workmanship.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kate Did not last long
My husband and I received this vacuum for our wedding. When it worked it did well, however after 7 months of use (1-2 times a week) the brush bearing melted down and the vacuum is no longer usable. We cleaned the brush out after every use and are extremely disappointed. This piece is not covered by warranty so we have to pay to have it replaced. I'd recommend a different product so you do not have to replace parts twice a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sdf35114 great cleaning and power for price
We had a Dyson for last few years and it had literally fallen apart- great suction but hose cracked, so many plastic parts broke off - very disappointed we spent so much money and couldn't rationalize spending that much again. We own other Bissell items so bought this model based on reviews. So glad we did! Great power and love the removable canister for stairs. This was a 3rd of the price of a Dyson and so far this is such a better value overall. We will never stray from the Bissell brand again.
