Was quite pleased several months ago when I first got this product. However, when used recently, I actually put it away to manual sweep my hardwood floors and area rugs. The vacuum spit out more dirt and dust than it took in. Was too frustrated to inspect to verify a machine malfunction or user error. Loved this vacuum when it first arrived. Not so sure anymore.
This is not a good vacuum if you have a lot of pet hair. The canister is too small and needs to be emptied frequently. In a regular household without pets this is probably fine. The cord isn't very long either and has to be moved often in a larger room
Wonderful vacuum. First time owning/using a bagless one & it works great. We live with 2 seemingly endless shedding cats- this does a great job with alot less effort & better fur pickup than any vacuum i've used before (my cats are 16 yrs old). The bagless part is so easy & handy, I was always buying bags(see note about shedding cats)- now I just dump the container & can continue. This is pretty easy to move around the house- not too heavy- but feels sturdy. The hose attachment is on the body of the vacuum -so its very accessible for fussier cleaning. The upholstery attachment works really well , not magical- but with a little effort it does a great job. Only downside was it arrived with the box looking like it was used as the goal for hockey practice. The hose was pinched as to be unusable. Customer service was really good, and a replacement arrived intact & quickly.
Great vacuum especially with winter time, indoor dog hair! It's lightweight and easy to use...gets close to baseboards with terrific suction going from hardwood to area rugs. Plus we like the fact that we can empty what we vacuumed - the bagless feature is great!
With two dogs in residence and one dog visiting, I killed a vacuum cleaner. I found this Bissell and ordered it. I am amazed how much more dog hair and dirt it picks up as compared to my old cleaner. It works wonderfully on the hardwood floors, and, with a quick adjustment, I can clean the large area rug in front of the door. The canister and filters are easy to empty and clean under running water. And I finally have a pet tool that vacuums the sofa and does not leave fur behind. I would definitely recommend this vacuum.
Needed a heavy duty for husky hair. This fit the bill quite well. A little hard to push on thick carpet but man it pulls the hair up so nicely it is worth the little extra effort. Good investment the cleaning lady uses it as well.

Love the automatic rewind on the cord. So far the suction is good. Was apprehensive about a bagless as I had a bad experience in the past with a different brand but this one is holding up well.

I have hated this vacuum since the first time I had to clean out the tray which was clogged with pet hair. It is a disgusting feat every time I use this . I am going back to a canister with bag. This is worse product ever.

I LOVE this thing! I am not much of a housekeeper ;-) but this thing has me hunting for dustbunnies regularly! It works great on hardwood and vinyl tile. I have no issue with the beater bar still running when using attachments, I just put it on high and keep it of the rug. I do wish that the "HIGH"carpet setting went one notch higher for my thick shag rugs, but the sofa attachment works great for dog hair on microfiber.
So far it seems to be working fine. My 12 year granddaughter is using it for her dog.

I hesitated on buying this vacuum as it was so much cheaper than the high end vacs. In this case, cost does not equate to quality. With four cats in the house, you know we have a lot of fur to clean up. I tried it on the cat tower and the tool supplied sucked up every last hair! I am sold on Bissell products. I recently purchased the pet hair steamer machine and it too is fantastic! You can't beat the price on Overstock.
Good suction, couldn't get the short anchor screw to catch--handle seems loose. So far this is my only observation. I've only used this machine for about 4 hours. It was deliveredwithin 5 business days of making the order! OVERSTOCK ROCKS!
My fifteen year old Electrolux needed to be replaced and I didn't want to spend that much again. I bought this particular vacuum because 1) I wanted to go bagless; 2) I wanted a vacuum that would pick up pet hair; and 3) the price was right. I am so impressed with this vacuum and can't believe how much dust and dog hair has come out of my carpets (kind of embarrassing)! It makes me realize that I should have replaced my Electrolux much sooner. Have I managed to get across how much I love this vacuum? :-)

I gave up trying to get the dog hair up with my Oreck. Then I found this.....AMAZING! It's heavier, of course, but so worth it. The furniture attachment did the job on our couch. Took up every dog hair. YAY, no more lint rollers needed.

I own multiple pets: 2 cats and 1 dog. I have gotten rid of most of my carpeting and replaced it with tile and hard wood flooring. In the past, it's been almost impossible to vacuum these floors--the dust and hair fly up everywhere. I usually end up sweeping with a broom or using a dust mop. It was so time consuming and the floors never really felt clean. This vacuum works wonderfully on bare floors. It has what looks like a lint brush attatchment that can be placed down in front of the revolving brush. It picks up and traps all lint, animal fur and dust bunnies and holds them until they are picked up by the brush and suction. It works so well! I finally feel like my floors can be managable again--and safe for allergy sufferers! I love this vacuum!
