I googled this vacuum for weeks and tried ordering from other sites but they are sold out, probably bc this model isn't being made! But I can not rave about this vacuum enough! My first time using this was as a hand me down and it lasted at least four years after my sister had it for a few! Now this time I could only find it refurbished but since the refurbished policy seems good I had to try and I love it!!!! It works even better than my old one, and my old one was great! I tried two other vacuums before ordering this refurbished and was soooooo disappointed in them compared to my old one! This one vacuums soooo close to the edge that I don't have to use the tool often. And, it seems to be very powerful so it gets heavy dirt particles out of the carpet, not just light carpet fibers. It is heavier than others I tried but I prefer the weight over the others not being powerful enough!
I liked the machine but was disappointed with attached tools. The hard hose connection broke after 3rd use. The part that if turned releases extension has a inner ring. It fell out and now I use rubberband to hold it in place. Also self winding cord would be nice.
I'm so happy with my new vacuum. I really love that it's got a detachable body-you really can go anywhere with it! And I for it for just under $***! Also-i ordered it Monday the 9th (just standard ground) and had it by Friday! I'll be recommending this product and this websites to everyone I know
I got this 4-5 months ago and it sucks....in the good way. I have a long hair cat that sheds a lot and this really gets his hair up. I really can't say if the canister is big enough for some people or not since I only have 1 area rug, but it's big enough for me. Great vacuum for the price.
I have always owned Oreck vacuums. This works great but is a lot heavier than what I am use to. I have a cat and dog and it does clean up the hair mess. The collection area is very easy to remove and clean I really like this and Not having to purchase bags.
I ordered this refurbished. Have no idea if that's the problem. The first one had NO SUCTION AT ALL!. I called and they shipped out a replacement. The replacement was only slightly better, but I needed a vacuum. You have to vacuum an area at least three times to get up all the dirt and animal hair (I vacuum every day). The bagless canister is very small, so you have to empty it constantly. Very disappointed in this product.
I ordered this vaccuum for my daughter. She has an Alaskan Husky. Delivery was a little slow. Pet Brush was missing, but contacted customer service and one has been shipped. Great suction and really does a grea job at picking up dog hair. My daughter is so glad to have it.
Great product--very efficient, even with pesky dog hair, and many assorted tools to get the job done. My husband (the primary vacuum wielder in our family) absolutely loves it and sings its praises every time he uses it. I have to concur that it is easy to use, not heavy, and sucks well. Our dog (a smooth haired fox terrier) sheds so much that he should be bald by all rights, and his hair is almost pine-needle-like in texture, which makes it well-nigh impossible to remove from carpeting and rugs. This vacuum has enabled us to finally triumph over dog hair, at a very reasonable cost to boot. I would highly recommend this product!
I had been shopping around for the best vacuum for 6 months. I have stairs and vacuuming was difficult with the bulky vacuum I had. The lift away feature on this Bissell is great and vacuuming is no longer the dreaded chore on my list!!!
I bought 2, one for my folks and one for myself. They work beautifully! I have had them for a couple of months now. Let me add that I have 3 indoor Great Danes, so my vacuum gets used! I usually shy away from refurbished, but the price called my name. In this case refurbished is not an issue at all.
A vacuum cleaners is not something I like to spend much money on, so when I needed a new one, I read the reviews on this refurbished Bissell and thought I would take a chance. I have pets and stairs, and the removable tank and pet attachment were just what I was looking for. Arrived quickly, (as usual from O.co) and assembly was easy. And I am a klutz when it comes to assembly. This vacuum picks up more than any other vacuum I have ever had and it is just the thing for getting the pet hair swept up. Cannister empties very easily, and frankly, as much pet hair as I get up it needs to be emptied often. Cannister is easy to remove to vacuum the stairs and get the cobwebs out of the corners and to do the furniture. The pet hair attachment is great, works like a charm. If you are looking for a reasonably priced vacuum that does everything you want it to do, I recommend the Bissel Lift Off Pet Cyclonic vacuum (recycled) I don't think you will be disappointed.
