You must know that I didn't get the Bissell Pet Eraser specifically to deal with pet hair, but just to use as any other regular vacuum cleaner. So, people with 10 cats and dogs, keep that in mind when reading this review)
So, my old vacuum broke (Eureka boss Capture Hepa Filter, $180, now $130) a few months ago and got stuck without a vacuum for about 2 months.
I used it 3 times a month for 2 years...I was told it broke because I used to use that "Glade" powder for carpets to smell good. BIG MISTAKE. Don't use that powder!! EVER!!!!) Suction power was all right I guess.
During those 2 months without a vacuum cleaner, I had to borrow either my sister's or my friend's ones...I wanted to find "THE ONE" in the mean time while testing others.
One of them was Dirt Devil Reaction Fresh (about $150), and the other one Dyson DC14 Animal (about $550 new, $300 reburbished).
The dirt devil was all right...like any other one...BUT
I fell in love with the Dyson, the suction power was unbelievable, my carpet looked like new (it's almost 3 y.o, my carpet) instantly and picked up a lot of dust.......At the same time, I wasn't gonna spend that much money, so after 10 minutes I came back to reality. My budget was $200 TOP. I almost get the Shark Navigator ($157 @walmart), but when I saw it at he store it didn't look good to me. Too small... and it looked like it was gonna break...it looked like a toy vacuum cleaner to me...I did find great reviews online, though.... but decided not to after all.
So....after a few weeks looking....while I was online about to get another Bissell, similiar to this one....I found THIS one...I read most of the reviews and decided to get it. The few bad reviews came from poeple with several pets at home, which I dont have, so...I figured it'd just be right for me.
Oh I was SO RIGHT!!! The suction power is just the same as the Dyson DC 14 Animal I had tried 3 times already ($550), left my carpet like new and picked up dust, just the very next day I had vacuumed using the Dyson.
BISSELL PET HAIR ERASER IS AWESOME!!
I've used it 5 times already, and I'm still in love with it. I wanted to wait a little bit before leaving a feedback. There was another review here that said "DYSON YOU BETTER WATCH OUT". I second that BIG TIME.
-It took us about 15 min to assemble it. (don't skip any step!)
-The cord lenght is perfect (long enough)
-Make sure you clean the little filter under the plastic cup.
If you keep the filters clean at all times, you shouldn't have any problems with any vacuum cleaner.
Hope this helps!
