    Highly Recommend For Everyone!! Huge Fan!!

    I have owned three of these and I love them!! Having dogs, I like to change vacuums every couple of years at least. But they were all still running and I passed them on to poor neighbors who really were desperate for something and felt that they could clean them up or live with the dog smell. I sent my husband to get me a new vacuum once and he came home with some fancy $250 bagless vacuum that didn't work right from day one. First off, I have severe allergies. I can not do bagless vacuums. Then the company told us something was defective and sent us a new part that we had to call and get instructions on how to repair/install ourselves. Then when the cleaner stopped working after six months, they told us the warranty wouldn't cover it as it was used to heavily. I was so mad!! This was not purchased at wal-mart though. I will never buy anything other than a Bissell PowerForce ever again. For the price it is a huge bargain and works great. Simple, pretty easy to clean, and etc....

    Better than the bagless.

    I had purchased the Bissell bagless based on the many good reviews posted on this site. It was a disaster! I have pets and the bagless could not handle the kitty litter dust and fur. It got more dust on the outside of the vacuum than the inside. It seemed to suck up the dirt and redistribute it in tiny pieces all over the carpet. Because I did not have much $$ to spend, and because I got excellent advice online from an article written by a retired vacuum cleaner sales and service store owner, I decided to try this product, the BAGGED version. Problem solved. All the kitty litter dust and fur is completely sucked up into the bag, the filter does not clog and it is clear sailing. it is also easier to put together and is a sturdier product. The bags are really cheap too. I highly recommend this product for anyone with a lot of dirt and dust to pick up and advise the same persons to avoid the bagless version, unless you have a lot of $$ to spend on one of the high-end bagless models, which apparently are the only truly efficient machines.

    Not even worth $40

    Years ago, I had this vacuum. It was the best vacuum I ever owned. It lasted for many years and worked well. When it finally died I tried other types other vacuums in every price range. None compared to this inexpensive model, so when my last vacuum died I decided to go back to this one. Unfortunately, I am very disappointed with it after only one use. Obviously they have made some changes, and not good ones! It is going back tomorrow. What's wrong with it you ask? The tool hose doesn't stay in the holder when vacuuming. It keep popping out which effects the suction and dirt and dust flies out all over the place every time it does. You constantly have to stop to stick it back in its place and re-vacuum. The suction from the tool hose is very good, but the floor isn't which is more important. I did like the febreeze scented bags and assembly was easy, but the vacuum is cheaply made and poorly engineered. Add two more amps, fix the tool hose attachment, and then add $10 to the cost. It would be worth it!

    Best Vacuum EVER!

    After trying several vacuums in my 16 years of marriage, most of which, were expensive, bagless, or fancy, and having NONE of them last longer than a year or two, I decided to go basic. I bought the most SIMPLE, plain vacuum I could find. Which was THIS Bissel Powerforce. That was about 8 years ago. Our rugs are maroon, so you can see every speck of dust, so I've mostly vacuumed every other day all those years. My husband has had to unglog it several times, but every time, it ends up working like brand new. This has been the BEST vacuum I've ever owned. Being too rough with it, (it's tough, so I wasn't careful!) the foot clicker that makes it stand up, or another click to lower it flat, doesn't work anymore. (it still stands, but it'll fall easily now) So I just came here hoping they still have this exact vacuum, and since they do, I'm buying it now. Maybe I'll use the old one upstairs. Sometimes fancy and complicated isn't worth it! All you need is a vacuum, and a hose, and you're good to go, I say!

    Great for the price. A good lightduty vacuum

    I bought this to vacuum my rugs and my 2yr old sons room. The rest of the house is hard wood. It has great suction and is light weight. The bags are a decent size. not too small, but not huge either. The bags run about $4 for 3 bags. I went with the bagged over the bagless because of less maintance of the bagged e.g washing the filter . the bend. components. I have 2 full grow Boxer dogs and the vacuum picked up there hair, no problems. The attachments are secure, so they don't fall off when you bump something. There's not alot of attachments, but enough to do wwhat i need. Bottom line is its a sturdy vacuum with a 2yr walmart replacement that was shipped to the store with the total spend being $50. If you want the best, buy a dyson. If you want to do light vacuuming of kids messes and dirt tracked in from the dogs. Get this its tough to beat for the price. i will ammend this after ^ months to give an update on its durablity,etc.

    Economical Light Weight Machine

    Saying yes to recommending this product to a friend is kind of borderline, but in all fairness I have owned several of this same product. I continue to buy the same machine when it breaks because it is more than affordable, most light-weight machine I can find for the money, and is a bagged upright - I do not like cleaning and emptying a bagless vacuum. When it breaks, it's always the same part - the foot lever that controls the beater lifting on the machine and the locking of the machine handle. This new model is not constructed as well as the older models. The hose for attachments is not as flexible as previous models - machine constantly falls to the ground when using/pulling it. Bissell got real cheap on one of the attachments - it's not even half the size of previous models - using one of my old ones. The hi-low adjustment for the beater bar does not go as low to the carpet as previous models. This model does have a much longer power cord than previous models.

    great value

    Just sold my $300 Oreck (10 yrs old) on Craigslist for $70. Went out and bought this fine piece of machinery for $40+. GREAT deal! Oreck was nice. Had a 4amp motor and pretty sturdy vac, BUT over-priced. This Bissell has a 10amp motor, a lot more suction and very sturdy build quality. Wife loves the hose option. Great for cleaning in between the couch cushions. Also great for cleaning our van! Super easy assembly; only 3 screws and all set. We opted for the bagged vac over the bagless because we have 4 kids who eat lots of pasta. Can't imagine how gross a bagless would get sucking up rice and mac/cheese. Everything would cake to the inside of the bagless container. NASTY! The bagged option keeps all the junk in the bag and we don't have to worry about it. Also bags are $4 for 3. Can't beat that! Will probably change the bag every 3-4 months. In summary, this vac is a great deal. We are very satisfied. Initial quality is A+...not sure what long-term experience will be but I suspect with Bissell's reputation we should be pretty happy.

    Have 2! An LUV THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    These vacuum cleaners are exceptional!!! I bought another one 6 months ago and, just like the first one I love it!!! I put dryer sheets like 2 or 3 on top of the black filter inside the vac. an cover the other filter. It not only picks up everything in site but, it smells great to put a few new ones in an take the old ones out an it's like a new vacuum every time. The hose is nice iot stretches out. Does great on all surfaces I use it on carpets, stair, furniture you name it. I have another one that is about 13 years old was my aunts an still runs strong. I only have one complaint I wish it had a light in the front. I can honestly say these are great machines an the only upright I'll ever own!!! I had a eureka before I hated it bagless an dirty an a lot of machines have the exhaust in the front so dog hair goes flying before you pick it up this one is on the side so unlike other units it doesn't blow the hair around it picks it up LUV IT!!!

    Great for any use,... home or business!!!

    Had the same model for many years, never had any problems until it finally broke. The level control for the carpeting height adjustment broke but the motor and suction still going strong. I'm still going to use it for home use. I bought a new one for business use and it is just as good as the old one! The vacuum is very solid construction , a little on the heavy side but very maneuverable and has extra long cord! The only draw back is that you need to buy bags but i have easily lived with that for many years. Before i bought this new one, i wanted to try a bagless model of the same brand and same price range and wound up sending it back!!! It was cheaply made and very lite weight, felt like it was put together by monkeys and suction not very good and every time you emptied the canister of dirt, you had to clean the filters too and it was very time consuming!!! My recommendation is this,... DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I MADE AND BUY A BAGLESS!!! You will only return it!!! Trust me when i say that you are well better off with this vacuum and so very reliable!!!

    Perfect for a small apartment.

    Let me first say that growing up in a large house and with many family members and friends visiting and many pets around, I understand how good a vacuum needs to be to handle all of that. This vacuum will NOT do well with that..well not for long.. But for just myself, in a 650sq ft 1 bedroom apartment, this vacuum does exactly what I need it to do...vacuum and groom the wall to wall carpeting once a week. It is fairly quiet, easy to push and the febreze scented bags are a nice touch. The bagged aspect is great for apartment living as you don't have to go outside to try and empty the canister, shake the filters etc...The suction from the hose is great so I use it with the crevice tool to get the baseboards and crevice my Bissell 3 in 1 stick vac can't reach. There is no dust escaping or being pushed around. So if you have a small apartment and no pets this will be perfect for you at the price.
