Rated 1 out of 5 by Larry29 Not a good product
I bought this because most of the reviews were good. Well, that was a mistake. I figured I would not have the same bad luck, but I did. First, the rubber that wraps around the base fell off in no time. It was easy to put back on but it kept falling off. I know I could have glued it to keep it in place, but the sweeper did not do a good job. 90% of what it picked up was rug fibers not dirt. This was a terrible mistake. Read the negative reviews first and look for the same repeat issues.

This is my second sweeper. First one is 20+ years old. Still works perfect. After all these years wanted second one for first story of house. Not optimistic about "plastic" construction. But, after three months I'm sold on this sweeper. First use was a pleasant surprise as the sweeper lifted my thick carpet leaving that un-walked on appearance obtained by using an expensive vacuum. At this point I'd buy another Brissell sweeper if it was made of cardboard! You're here to decide? Buy it, enjoy it, it is an investment.

This sturdy little sweeper is very powerful. It picks up everything. It is just as good as the bigger sweepers and its quality is great.
I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crafty Love my two Bissells
Got one for my house as we have friends over for dinner often and I have a turkish rug in my kitchen, not to mention rugs everywhere else, including wall to wall in our lower entry area, off the garage where the cat has his litter box. All I have to do now is grab the bissell and 10 minutes later everything looks great. No getting out the vacuum for spot cleaning.
Loved it so much, got one for our vacation home. My grandchildren are now all Bissell whizzes, and cleaning up after a messy dinner or the weekend goes much more quickly ... Now, if there was just a Bissell washer and dryer that could do 8 loads of sheets and towels in no time, we would be set.
Am giving one to my daughter and to my daughter-in-law for Christmas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by birdbrain This works pretty good for me.
I purchased this because I have 2 exotic birds. They are sloppy with their eating and there is always wood toy pieces, that get in the floor as they chew on them. This makes it easier for a daily quick pick up! Not perfect for bigger wood chunks. But it's better for me than dragging out a vacuum every day!

Works excellently at picking up dust, hair, crumbs etc. from our Persian Rugs without using excessive force. These dense wool carpets generally hold the dirt on their surfaces and don't require a vacuum. Important as they are very old and delicate. Also efficiently gathers dust etc. from the surrounding oak floors. Quick to operate and simple to store. Really love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jlefevre Very dependable, really good product!!!
I was first introduced to this product about 30+ years ago while employed by a major restaurant chain. The sweepers were used by everyone working at the numerous stores. The products held up very well then under extremely hard conditions. Over the years I have had several of the same sweepers for home use. My mother owned a really nice boutique/clothing store, and I got her one to keep the floors clean. It has been years since she closed the store. I found two of the sweepers while cleaning the store one day and used both of them to make one good sweeper.
That's been years ago when I brought the one I pieced together into my home and started using it. Well, the brush finally wore out. I looked but couldn't fine a replacement brush. I then just took a chance and typed "Bissell.com" into a search engine on the web and found their site. I also found a sweeper much like the ones I had and ordered it and a brush to help keep it clean.
So far, the new sweeper performs as good as I remember the old ones. (And, these things are SO handy, lay flat in a hanger and do a REALLY good job cleaning up messes.#
I also found a wall hanger for the sweeper #like we used to use in the restaurants# that fits behind a door in the kitchen making it always right within reach. #I found the hanger like I found Bissell.)
