Rated 5 out of 5 by Kay97 You have got to be kidding!!!
You have got to be kidding!!! Was my first reaction when I used this vacuum. I could not believe all the stuff that was in my carpet. I only did my bedroom and had to empty the container And I currently do not have an inside cat or dog. I saw cat hair in there from almost a year ago. I have had three vacuums in three years and this one trumps all. I have only owned this vacuum for under 12 hours and only did one room. I can't wait to use it on the rest of the house. I love the clean smell it left in my bedroom and the way the carpet felt soft and like new after.
Great product and great price. Thank you!!!

This is our family's second Bissell and I wouldn't have it any other way. It goes above and beyond the standards! I have pets and children so vacuuming is a daily duty. It takes care of all of the wood floors without leaving a scratch and then is amazing with all the carpets and rugs. It doesn't stop there... The couches and all other surfaces get cleaned as well. Not many other vacuum's can keep up with this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Julan1961 This vacuum is pitiful!!
I bought this vacuum last fall (2013) and, it worked very well for a while. Well, about 3 vacuums ago, it started making a very loud screeching sound. I cleaned everything and blew out filters with a compressor. I have NOTHING! It won't even start now!! I am very disappointed. The reason I replaced my last Bissell was because of the loud noise, but at least that one worked! Any suggestions? I bought mine at WalMart and do not have the receipt.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Stay at home dad Disappointed that Bissell let me down again! smh
This is the third Bissell vacuum we've purchased in less than three years. We first purchased the PowerGroom Pet 4104 series and it stopped working within four months. Took it back and had it replaced with the same model. It lasted just over a year before it stopped working. We had to purchase a new brush for it during that time span also. So we decided to give Bissell one more chance and purchased the Total Floor Pet 61C5W model. It worked so-so for a week. We purchased it on 8/26/2013 mind you. Every time you pulled the sweeper back, it would leave pet hair where you stopped and then went forward again. It's as if the pet hair lifter fabric in front of the roller brush was in put backwards or causing the problem. No matter how much you sweep, there is always pet hair residue left behind. We went to take it back to the retailer, but they refused to take it because it was purchased over six months ago. Now the roller brush is broken. Bissell I am disappointed in the quality and craftsmanship of your product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by rd13 The good the bad & the ugly
The GOOD: the suction power and ability to pick up pet hair is amazing.
The BAD: emptying out the canister is extremely messy! you need another vacuum to clean up this vacuum when you dump it! and you have to dump it often!
The UGLY: did I mention that it is messy? it is very, very messy! dirt & pet hair go everywhere. The vacuum ends up all dusty and you have to take additional time to clean it off.
this being said, we do have 4 pets, all of whom shed. i guess i would rather pay for bags than have to deal with the mess this vacuum makes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Silverdreds Belt keeps breaking
This would be a great vacuum if the belt didnt have to be replaced so frequently. Had it less than 6 months and replaced belt 5 times. Putting this thing in the trash. I hate using it. To think I replaced a long time Eureka vaccum for this product because of the pet cleaning feature.

I have had this vacuum for less than a year I gets clogged up in the hose & in the bottom. When it's not clogged up the cup fills on one side and that causes another clog..should have gone with the shark.
