Swift Sweep is a handy dandy product. It is very easy to use and does a great job sweeping up things on floors and carpets that shouldn't be there. It is narrow and light, which makes it easy to sweep. It would be nice, however, if Bissell could come out with one a little wider, which would speed up the process, especially for larger areas. I'm real glad we have Swift Sweep in our home, - It should be a standard item in every home! Thank You for allowing me to review the product and express my views.

When I was a kid we never had a vacuum but we always had a Bissell Carpet Sweeper so when I order this because I needed something to use between regular vacuums I hoped it would be like it was then. This little inexpensive sweeper is probably the best at what it does of them all. Plus, it is a reminder of "the good old days". It does more than its job, is easy to clean out and it is quiet. My dogs don't even bark at it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grace Swift Sweeper is a great for tidying up in a hurry!
I purchased a Swift Sweeper and love how it picks just about any kind of dirt, pet hair and crumbs. My daughter came over tried it and immediately wanted one for her classroom (she is a pre-school teacher). I ordered another one and we both love what a great job it does on all surfaces. Would highly recommend this product! Thank you!

My household consists of two lovely long haired ladies, one of which is 11, and a hard working machining operator. You can only imagine the hair and metal chips that can accumulate on our floors on a daily basis. Many times, we were loath to lug out our poor overworked vacuum, simply due to the sheer weight and bulk of the thing. Many a lively game of Rock, Scissors, Paper was played and cheated on when it was deemed that the mess was too much to ignore. We finally decided that a daily alternative was in order.
After researching tirelessly online, I came to the conclusion that the Swift Sweep was the answer. Unfortunately, I was unable to find it in any store in my town, In fact, I could barely find any manual sweepers anywhere in my area. I ordered it online from Bissell.com, and was pleasantly surprised at the discounts I received from registering with the website, along with the super-fast shipping.
Upon receiving my order, we tore into the packaging (which was excellent), and set to work assembling. Within minutes of the easy-as-pie handle assembly, the Swift Sweep was ready to use.I had been a little concerned. In my mind, I equated the heavier the product, the better it would perform. I needn't have worried; The Swift Sweep is lightweight, and easy to maneuver, but in five minutes, the bedroom no longer gleamed with aluminum chips nor was it covered in wayward hairs, strings and crumbs. Upon emptying the dirt pans, which were also a snap to use; I was amazed. It had picked up things I hadn't even seen.
I look forward to many long years with our Swift Sweep. I am confident that any problems that arise can be quickly resolved. Thank you, Bissell, for making such a helpful product!

I purchased my first one through Amazon. Although I had trouble keeping the handle together, I loved this sweeper. I recently purchased two more and was pleasantly surprised to find that the handle has been redesigned and now screws together.

I am a fan of Bissell for the most part. I LOVED the turbo sweep, but in the long term something kept going wrong and mine kept having issues even though they happily exchanged it for me several times.
I came across this little guy and have to say it picks up really well for a push and sweep. I have had it about a month and ordered from Bissell.com. It picks up dirt, hair, dust, and dried playdough........ I was pleasantly surprised on how full it was when I dumped dirt. It works well on my regular carpet, my kitchen floor throws and my large shag area rug! It does ok on tile but nothing can replace a broom when you have dogs.
My only 2 minor issues is that the rubber guard does not stay on but I do not crash, (I maybe could glue it??) and the stick/handle is a tad to long (I am 5'6 so average height, but if I play with sections the stick comes in to adjust height its to short. LOL! Can't beat it for the price.

The carpet sweeper works great at picking up most of the dirt In between vaccumings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lisa 11 month old + long haired cat + medium coated dog = hairy messes!
I love this little thing! I was looking for something easy and quiet to pick up hair and little messes in between vacuuming. I hate getting my vacuum out plus the dog and baby are scared of it! This sweeper works great on all surfaces for the animal hair. Works on carpeting, rugs, tile, wood. I fill it up with animal hair, works great. I use it many times throughout the day.
Some minor drawbacks, if there's a little crumb right next to the edge of a rug on wood/tile it won't pick it up because there's no vacuum. Just move it with your foot and sweep it up, no problem. It will start dropping when full, just remember to empty it every few days. Our cat has super fine hair that grabs to carpet and fabric. Have to go over it several times to pick it up. I bet normal cat hair would be no problem.
