I got my vacuum last night and started on the upstairs where I had just vacuumed earlier after I used this vacuum I got a whole additional bucket!!!!!! I couldn't believe it. Today I tried it on the stairs which I have always dreaded because other vacuums don't have a stair attachment; I used this one and got (ashamed to say) 3 buckets of dog hair and dirt! It works great on hardwood and is easy to maneuver.I have three dogs and my house now looks like a show room house and I have white carpets! Thanks Bissell.

I love this little backpack. The hose needs to be stronger I have to replace it, the hose is a thin plastic and tore. This Vacuum is used for my business and is very heavy duty it sucks up just about everything it is way. The hose needs to be a solid hard plastic and it would be perfect I was going to purchase 4 for my business but now I will look for one with a stronger hose.

I love this vacuum it is everything it claims! It even removed pet hair embedded on my husbands speakers! And I have recommended to a friend she is expecting hers in a few days. and it only took two or three days after ordering to get here

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 have a Dyson upright, but I found myself using an old dustbuster for everyday spot vacuuming (we have a dog that sheds terribly). What I longed for was a vacuum that was like using the Dyson wand without the rest of the vacuum and the electrical cord. I also wanted one that was easy to empty -- emptying the dustbuster and cleaning the multiple filters was a drag so I always put off emptying. I was thrilled to find the Dyson cordless handheld. I didn't buy it right away because of the price. Could it be so much better than rest? Yes. It is wonderful - exactly what I was looking for, and perfect for a quick, efficient run through the entire 1st floor. I understand the reason for the hold-down trigger, but I will be honest. My hand does hurt (ache?) a little by the time I'm done. No matter though, I'll take a tired hand any day for this great piece of machinery.

Very, very pleased so far. Vacuum did arrive one day later than quoted but not a big deal. Easy to assemble, up and running within 5 minutes of opening the box. We have a very fluffy Husky mix and two cats so hair builds up fast on our mostly carpeted floors. Had borrowed a vacuum before it arrived and this one STILL picked up a TON of hair and dirt that the other had missed. It also cleans spiky sandburs out of the carpet fibers with ease!! Extension tool works really well and adds significant reach. Edging tool works perfectly. Also came with a special pet hair tool (yay!) and a two sided brush attachment. Canister is very easy to clean. Rollers don't clog up. It is light and easy to maneuver and feels like it propels its self along going both backward and forward. Only complaint is that the handle comes unattached. It came off at one point as I balanced the vacuum with it while using the extension tool. The handle does fit on quite snugly so I'm hoping that was a one time quirk. All in all, an excellent vacuum for the price. Now to see how many years I can get out of it!

Really works wonders for carpet of pet owners. Can't believe what we picked up that was left from our old vacuum cleaner and it is much quieter. It is a little heavy but still handles very well.

This vacuum really is the best at getting up pet hair and dander! We have two dogs in a carpeted studio apartment, and we bought this vacuum when our old vacuum died. The difference between this one and our old vacuum is like night and day - this Bissell sucks up probably 10x more pet hair and leaves our carpet softer and cleaner than it has ever been. I'm very glad that I decided on this vacuum, and I highly recommend it to all pet owners!

Being an owner of a husky and a pit pull i have alot of hair floating in my house. not only on the floors, but my bed, the couches and even in my car. this is an amazing vacuum. i feel kind of silly for getting so excited over a vacuum cleaner, but i am. i have tried alot of different things made to specifically pick up pet hair. i.e large floor lent rollers, pet hair brush.e.t.c. so i was thrilled when i could vacuum my comforter while still on the bed, and vacuum the couch right before guests came over. also with having a full head of long hair, i have clogged other vacuums before. so this vacuum has stood the task of keeping hair off of everything. definitely a 5 star vacuum for the price also.

I bought this vacuum cleaner after the handle on my Hoover "snapped off". For the first time I did research before buying one, and I am SO glad that I did. I was impressed with the reviews and the price was good-if it worked like the reviews promised. It was delivered in 2 days which was great (normal for Overstock.com). It's very easy to assemble and a lot lighter weight than I expected. It has plenty of attachments (I am grateful-I bought an Oreck a few years ago and it didn't have ANY attachments, used only Oreck bags and was hard to push around) and the cord is long enough to clean most of my house without having to plug it in again. I don't remember reading that it was "self-propelled" in the reviews or if it's because it's so lightweight, but the Shark almost vacuums by itself. The head swivels which is quite handy in corners and around table legs. I have two long-haired cats and the amount of hair that was vacuumed up the first time I used the Shark was totally amazing (and embarrassing). I vacuumed my house every day for the first week I had the Shark and I continued getting dirt and cat hair out of my carpet, which is wonderful but doesn't say much for my previous vacuums. I have never been so excited about a vacuum cleaner before, but I've never had one that exceeded my expectations like this one has. The only thing wrong with it-it's a little top heavy when using the wand and can tip over if you pull it by the wand instead of the handle on the top. I wouldn't mind if the hose/wand was a little longer either but overall I am very happy with it and would urge anyone-especially pet owners- to get this vacuum cleaner. You won't be sorry.

This is the best vacuum cleaner ever made. My parents have had this machine for over 20 years. Basically I grew up using this vacuum cleaner. Knowing that this is a very well made product I decided to purchase a refurbished one on Overstock. There are a couple of reasons I went this route. First, it's more affordable (new ~$XXXX), and second I would never be able to stand a home visit from one of the obnoxious rainbow dealers. They are truly unbearable. So this was a win-win for us. There are a couple of issues we encountered with the unit we received: a metal wand was bent and had to be replaced (already received from Overstock) and one hose attachment was damaged (replacement in progress). Love this machine and was dreaming of one for a long time. It's a must for any pet owner. I never write reviews (always read them), but I do feel very strongly about the incredible quality of this product. $$ well spent. FOR SURE

We have several commercial properties for which we provide maintenance and janitorial services. The GV Vacuum is just the right piece of equipment we were looking for. It has all the power and suction we need. With a heavy 50' electrical cord, it gives us the mobility and portability we need to efficiently get the job done. The tools work well and provide the flexibility needed. By our limited use and inspection at this time, it appears to be well constructed and we anticipate good and long service from the GV Vacuum. Perhaps, the only drawback is for the operator to remember he/she is wearing a decent-sized piece of equipment on his/her back in tight spaces.

I am a pet owner. Over the years I have tried many vacuum cleaners to deal with the fur from cats and dogs. I've tried the Hoovers, Eurekas, Electrolux, and Dysons. All had their pluses and minuses. Then one day, in a hotel, I saw this vacuum and thought, why not try a commercial machine. I bought one *** and never looked back, except to laugh at the others and bemoan the $500 I spent on a Dyson Animal. This machine is powerful, the hose pops right out for using the tools, it lays completely flat to get under beds, try that with a Dyson. This is a heavy duty machine that will let you know it's getting the job done. The fact that the beater bar has its own motor was a major feature. No air driven bar to bog down. Love it. Love it. Love it. And who really wants to look at the dirt from you rugs, anyway? This machine is designed to get the job of cleaning a room done right and done quickly. Next time you are in a hotel, look at the carpet and ask if your machine could do that job, every day. This one can and does.

I recieved my GV-8 vacuum about 2 months ago. It is the perfect vacuum for cleaning up remodeling dust. Especially hard wood floors, window sills, wood mouldings. We installed new doors and windows in an older home. After picking up the big trash, the GV-8 made short work of cleaning all the ledges, miter joints, and floors. Being a backpack unit made it quick and portable. And no loss of power with this unit. It is more powerful than my larger wheeled clumsy units. I was ready for the white glove inspection and proud to leave the worksite so spotless. Great product.

Daughter loves hers. Perfect for the pet owner you doesn't want to drag around the heavy sweepers. Very light weight. Wonderful.

I've only had this vacuum for a few weeks but it does the job well. I have tile and carpet in my house and the vacuum does well on both surfaces. In addition, having the detachable canister feature is a bonus. It is a great vacuum especially for pet owners, hopefully it will last for a long time.

I shopped around quite a bit to find a good quality bagless vacuum at an affordable price. This Bissell is exactly what I wanted. It was easy to assemble so don't let having to assemble it put you off. The owner's manual comes with easy directions and all you need is a medium sized Phillips Head screwdriver. 15-minutes from the time I opened the box to the time I started vacuuming with it and discovering all the features! This model was not promoted for pet owners per se but we do have two cats and this unit does the job. Pets or not, I highly recommend it.
