    Superior suction and filtration!

    After using bagless for about 10 years and getting extremely frustrated when emptying them I finally decided to go back with a bagged machine. And I am glad that I made that choice. This vacuum has a HUGE dust capacity and the best filtration system I've ever used. Never once has this machine clogged and I accidentally vacuumed up a few fabric sheets by mistake. Now, as for the suction... AMAZING! This machine just eats hair, dust, fine powders and dirt. Even when the bag is near full I noticed no drop in suction. Plus this machine weighs about 10 lbs and you could easily lift it over your head! My only complaint is that when vacuuming hard floors it has trouble picking up (and sometimes kicks them back) larger pieces (ie cereal) and certain types of cumbs while dirt, dust, fine powders are sucked up perfectly. Other than that it's a highly recommend machine!

    Had a de-flea project 1700 sq ft. home. Rental with large carpeted living, dining and bedrooms was never de-flead from prior tenants with pets. This vacuum has awesome suction and a low setting to really scrub the carpet dirt up into the vacuum. Once over does the job! No repeat strokes, gets it first time. I have 3 furry shedding cats. Easy small product assembly, didn't even have to read the instructions. This is the only vacuum I will ever purchase. I hope they keep making them and never stop!

    I really like my powerforce vacuum. I have had it about a year now, nothing has broken, and it's still working just fine. It always smells good when vacuuming using the febreze bag. And I like that it uses a bag. Just throw it away, no dust when you empty it.

    This vacuum worked perfectly until I changed the bag. I've had bagged vacuums before so I know I put it in there correctly but ever since I changed the bag it won't pick anything up and it started making a weird sound. I already made sure that the bags were to right size and that nothing was clogging the vacuum. So I don't know if this vacuum just sucks after you change the bag or what but I'm definitely wishing I had a baggless right now. I use my vacuum constantly for my house and when cleaning other people's houses so it's displeasing when you put money into vacuum that you can barely even use anymore.

    AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING! Okay, I know all caps is a turn off for some people, but this vacuum warrants them. This vacuum is powerful, very lightweight, built amazingly well, and get this, it's BAGGED! That may turn off some people at first, it certainly did me, but after 4 months of use now I can confirm that I'm never using a bagless vacuum again. It sucks up the dirt and keeps it sealed in. The HEPA filter on the side has no dust in or around it (visible at least). My old bagless unit's HEPA compartment would get all dusty after a couple weeks use, and you'd have to practically take apart the whole machine and clean it. Not this one! Also, I'd like to mention that the Febreeze bags are awesome. They actually have a nice scent, and they last! I change my bag about once a month, and the scent has always lasted through the bag change. What else... I think that's it for now. Don't let the low price fool you, it's amazing. I definitely recommend it!

    Only type of vacuum I have purchased for the past 10+ years, have 3 of them. One for each house and dad n laws house. One even has a light! Lol. Only problem is the handle lock to keep the handle upright when its not being used breaks kinda to easily... But they just are so reliable. Hope they never stop making them...

    I have this vacuum and for over all cleaning, it does a good job. My complaint is that the hose is too short to reach the tops of curtains. I did buy extra poles to add to the reach but since the hose is so short, there is no maneuverability. Bissell does not sell hose extensions so I have to hold the vacuum up in one hand while reaching high with the other. I won't make this mistake again. I will be checking hose lengths and availability of hose extensions on my next one.

    I have allergies to dust and dust mites and this vacuum has been helpful in controlling those allergies. It is easy to push around. The reason I did not give 5 stars is that the hose does pop off quite frequently as does the power cord from the groove above the slot for the hose. Otherwise, it is easy to fix if the belt comes off (I vacuum from tile to carpet. This has only happened once in 3 years). It does an EXCELLENT job vacuuming tile. My water after mopping is barely soiled. So much cleaner than when I would use a broom. Also, it is very easy to change the bags. For those reviewers that say dirt blows everywhere, I ask if you have checked the filters and ensured they are intact. Also, it has been my experience that if you have these problems so soon after purchasing it, the retailer will exchange it. In addition, the on board tools are handy and easy to quickly access when cleaning. I would recommend this vacuum.

    Comment from Lisa - 8/28/2014

    Thank you for your review. To secure the upholstery hose, make sure to pull the hose tightly to clip into the holder.

    My mother, in her 70's, needed a new vacuum to replace her 1970's upright with a cloth bag. I wanted something lightweight so she could handle it and with a bag so she didn't have to deal with the mess of dumping a dirt cup. It is getting harder to find bagged vacuums which, being a professional cleaning person for over 30 years, I prefer. This model fits the bill; it was so light I could get it off an upper shelf(above my head), it seems capable of cleaning the low nap carpets in her small apartment, the cord is long enough to vacuum the entire place without having to switch outlets and it has a dandy handle for the attachment hose!

    • A. This item comes with one bag in its packaging. However, Bissell was smart enough to include a mailer inside of the box that allows you to buy 12 for a really low price. You would need to price-compare to see if the price is the lowest. Nonetheless, this is a convenient aspect of not having to worry about what size to purchase since the mailer corresponds with this item.
