Rated 3 out of 5 by Dana Sprite Difficult cleaning process after use.
I found cleaning the total system after use to be difficult. When I removed the dirt container and filter cups, dust and dirt fell all over the vacuum and surrounding floor. A big mess. The cups were not particularly full. The upper tank was completely covered with debris (I have cats) and I had to use my hand to remove the collection before I could remove the piece for cleaning. Another big mess, my hands and arms, the vacuum and the surrounding floor. The cleaning process took as much time as I spent vacuuming five rooms and now I have to wait for everything to dry before I can reassemble. I was pleased with the performance of the vacuum but question if I will keep the product because of the cumbersome and sloppy cleaning procedures. I also found it awkward reaching for the electric cord so it would not tangle in the wheels. It would help to have a "hook" to secure the cord when the unit was in use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by johnny2002 MY SECOND BISSELL VAC....
I bought this one to replace my last bissell that lasted me for 12 years! My old one was as every bit a great machine as my new one. I love all the NEW features on my new Bissell Vac. I brag about it to all my friends that have other brands and replace them year after year :-}
I rate my new Bissell KING of the Vacs. Hope this one lasts me another 12 years...ha, ha, ha!

We are a church and our senior Pastor came in one morning to find the Bissell Power Groom Helix sitting in front of the door, package unopened. The young woman who does our cleaning uses a Bissell that is similar and was excited to try this one out. I'm not sure what she liked best - the power and suction, the ease of use, the sweet Febreeze smell that is left after use or just the total package. My next new vacuum will be a Bissell based on the quality and workmanship of our new machine here at church.

I purchased this vacuum after our other Bissell vacuum finally went. I loved our other vacuum and was hesitant on purchasing a new one. I found this one and LOVE IT! I just used it for the first time today and not only was the price VERY reasonable but it has great suction power. The Febreze filter scent feature is super nice while you are vacuuming and I love the cord rewind feature. I would recommend this vacuum to anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced, very efficient vacuum. Thank you Bissell.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Buylamb Plastic parts just cant take heavy use
I guess given whats out there this machine is good. I have found however, that the plastic parts are not able to stand up to any real dirt and grit that animals may bring into the house. The more sandy the grit the easier the plastic parts fail. Metal parts had no such issues. Great hair collector and very easy to clean. I expect this will last about 2 years due to the plastic parts.

I bought this vacuum to replace my old Bissell that I've had for many, many years. I find the suction power to be unlike any vacuum I've had before. It sucked up pet hair out of the carpet that wasn't even visible. I like how the febreeze scent filter fills up the room. It's lighter than my old one. I also like the handle as it has a better feel to it. The cord is shorter than my old one but it is managable.
