The sweeper works great - better than my vacuum - but the plates on the bottom repeatedly pop out after just a swipe or 2 on the carpet. It seems the pins which holder the center blade in place are too short, but since it's the same piece of metal holding the handle, there's no easy fix. I am going to try to kluge a fix this weekend because if the plates stayed in place, it would be terrific.
on my back. Even though this is a manual push sweeper, it glides over my bedroom carpet and area rugs like it was butter. I generally use a heavy duty vacuum, but since developing spinal stenosis which causes my back to stiffen up, hurt if I dare get up from a chair, or dare move back and forward pushing something. It is that I get to move around easily utilizing a manual sweeper. It holds tight to the weave of my carpet and area rugs and I just walk behind pushing and pulling gently no more than twice in one area of each, picking up all kinds of items including a dropped earring (Oh, there it is!). I am very happy with the lessened weightiness and great balance of this Bissell Sweeper. No more heavy vacuums for me.
I have used this sweeper several times during the past week and it is still holding a charge. It looks like a toy but yet is so durable and picks up a everything on the floor. Cat hair, catfood, litter and even lint and leaves. Excellent suction and light and fast.
Easy to assemble, battery charged rather quickly. Works great on bare floors and low pile carpets. Very lightweight and dust cup is easy to load and unload & hold quit a bit of debris.
