I am buying this vacuum for a 2nd time as the first one I bought has lasted almost 8 years. My current one still works but the motor suddenly started making an ear-piercing sound and I suspect it is probably going bad but after working almost 8 years I can't complain. This vacuum has great suction for cleaning up pet hair and has always worked wonderfully on the carpets and couch. The canister and filters are easy to clean and in my opinion, it is easy to disassemble if you need to clean the roller or the hose gets clogged which rarely occurs. I did replace the belt one time but it was easy. My only complaint is that the hose is too short and the vacuum falls over when I use it but it's something I'm willing to deal with given this vacuum has worked so well for me otherwise. I will say it is very important to keep the canister clean which includes removing the piece insides and cleaning that as well (which is easy). As with any type of machine, it requires regular maintenance to work properly and with a vacuum, keeping it clean ensures you continue to have adequate suction.
Great vacuum! Picks up pet hair well. Easy to clean out. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I just bought this Bissell and i haven't had it long enough to comment on it, but it seems to work just fine. I thought you might like to know that I replaced my old Bissell AFTER 15 YEARS!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I purchased Bissell because of name recognition, and i've been satisfied in the past with their carpet shampooers. My last vacuum was a Dyson and I might have gotten spoiled but whoever designed this product as well as the person/committee that approved this design should have tried it in the field before starting production. The suction is good, the trouble comes when you want to use the accessories. The hose is so short it is almost useless and i'll be breaded and deep fried if the dang thing don't just tip over (risking damage) more frequently than W.C. Fields on a distlerey tour! Dear Bissell Co. THIS ONES A LEMON!
This a a great vacuum cleaner. It is extremely light and picks up dirt on one pass. I also like the fact that it has a power switch rather than a foot pedal to start vacuum. Thus, preventing it from powering on by mistake when you are trying to place machine in vacuum position. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
It really sucks! ; ) and is lightweight, too! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
