Rated 5 out of 5 by Roadkill Best vacuum ever!
I bought the Powergroom Pet Compact a few weeks ago and was very impressed with it's performance. We've had a lot of expensive vacuum cleaners over the years but this one did the job the others couldn't do. Our Border Collie and our cat sheds horribly but this little vacuum can clean it right up. Not only the hair but hairballs and spilled cat litter. The best money I never spent!
We have hardwood floors upstairs and it works great on them too. Within a week of getting the Powergroom Pet Compact I ordered the Steam and Sweep Pet. What a fantastic combination! I think I'll get a Deep Clean Pet next then take off and go fishing!

Rated 1 out of 5 by CalGuy Belt Problems
The belt broke on ours, so I went online and purchased three new Bissell belts and two of the pleated filters. As others on this site have stated, the belts do not stay on. They slide off the end of the steel rod. I do not see anywhere on this site where a real solution is given to that issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MariahLacy Can I get a refund?
Ive had this vacuum six months... I've put in three new belts, all Bissell, and they still keep breaking. It does continue to suck up very well, but the belt thing is kind of ridiculous. We took it apart and one side of the spinning brush on the head of the vacuum doesn't match up for whatever reason. You have to push it quite hard to make it spin, and it sounds like its going to blow up, and smells like it too... I've always used Bissell and trusted the company but after this one... I am not so sure.

Rated 2 out of 5 by scarrah Barely lasted a year before problems
When I bought this vacuum, it was great. Within 6 months the suction greatly decreased. Now the belt won't stay on. It doesn't break, but it continually falls off. I have tried replacing it and that didn't help.

Rated 1 out of 5 by seabrookrose waste of good money
I loved this when i first bought it. But after only 7 months of use there is no suction. It picks up nothing at all. My husband checked it out and there is nothing stuck inside so we can't figure out why the suction has disappeared. I feel i wasted my money a good vacuum should last longer than 7 months.

Rated 2 out of 5 by animal mom belt keeps breaking because bering on the spinning brush keeps getting hot and seizing up.
Works great except when the wheel on brush over heats melt apart. Which causes the belt to break and the vacuum is trash now...

I haven't had this vacuum very long but I am extremely happy with the way it picks up pet hair. I have a cat that sheds a lot and this vacuum picks up hair better than any other vacuum I have owned. It's lightweight and gets into small spaces, works on furniture and all kinds of floors. I highly recommend this product.
Suggestion to mfg.- please make an extention piece to attach to the hose in order to reach ceilings easier. Also, would have liked the hose to be a bit longer.
