This vacuum picks up pretty well but is hard to push on thick carpet. Also, it tends to spray debris around on hard floors. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Purchased one 4 months ago, used it to vacuum small rooms and was never rough with it. Made sure it was cleaned properly and taken care of and basically babied. Tonight while in use, the roller stopped working and the motor started to get hot & smell! Made sure it wasn't clogged up the belt was on properly so I tried it again. Made 4 swipes across the carpet and it really smelled hot again. Husband looked at it and the motor was smelling of hot burning plastic and it was throwing off heat from it.
I bought the vacuum after reading some great reviews on it. We have 4 dogs, plus foster dogs, and a cat, so it had to be a great vacuum for pet hair! We have hardwood flloors, tile, and carpet throughout our home, so it needed to work on all floor surfaces It seems to be great on pet hair and work well on both the hard floors and carpet. The only complaints I have are the cord being so long that it gets in the way when vacuuming, the divider in the middle of the canister is hard to get lodged pet hair out from the top section, and the Pet Turbo Eraser attachment stopped spinning and working properly after one use. Other than these minor things I would recommend this vacuum. The important thing in my household is good suction power for the pet hair and it definitely seems to have that!

Amazing product for the price, picks up everything, it is easy to empty it. We just love it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
This vacuum is a piece of junk. The removable portion developed a short and would not allow the vacuum to operate. Once the 30 day warranty expires you have to fix it on your own. The unit is extremely top heavy. If you attach a hose to it expect to be repairing dings to your walls constantly due to it falling over. The screws in the base unit have fallen out so many times they can no longer be tightened up anymore. The plastic has stripped out. AVOID THIS PRODUCT!
it's perfect. Vacuumed up stuff I didn't know was there. Had a cordless Dyson it wouldn't hold a charge anymore. Bought this Bissell very glad I did. Threw the Dyson out.
This vacuum has revived the carpet in our bedroom. It's lighter weight than my old machine and emptying the canister is a breeze. Highly recommend this company for supporting pet rescue. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
