Rated 2 out of 5Â by Holdingmynose Disappointed
I have had this bissell about a week and while this is my first pet hair one I have had several of their sweepers. I didnt expect miracles but for the extra price and the pet hair feature I expected more. I am pleased to see it actually does pick up pet hair as I have been struggling with that issue with my dyson and my other bissels. Where I am let down is the battery life is terrible. I just turned it off after going through a couple rooms quickly and now it wont turn back on unless I recharge. The machine just sounds weak. Furthermore the exterior of the machine collects all sorts of hair and debris and maybe its just more noticeable because its white but its kind of gross. The dirt collection area has tons of dirt under the actual "cup" and I have had to clean it each time as its a significant amount, I didnt expect the vacuum itself to be so much work when I was looking for the convenience of a sweeper.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Doggymama Best one I've had
This sweeper is fantastic, I love it! I have a large bird who drops feathers and throws food on the floor all day, and this works perfectly on our carpet and also the hardwood in the adjoining room. It also picks up all the cat hair from our cats, too. I still use an upright vacuum at least once a week, but this works perfectly for everyday in between vacuuming. I have tried Oreck and Sharp sweepers but neither of those worked half as well or seemed nearly as well designed and durable as this. Thank you Bissell, I'm so glad I tried this sweeper, I'll never use anything else!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Olivia637 Doesn't Work
I received this as a gift from my Mom. I was so excited to get it, because I have two cats and one of them sheds a TON. I used it maybe three times before it stopped working. Every time I plug it in to charge it, the light turns green. So I know it's charged. But when I go to use it, nothing happens. No noise or anything. It's like it's completely dead when it absolutely shouldn't be. So overall I'm very disappointed in this product, which is upsetting because this would have been perfect for my little apartment.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by fmedic5 This is not my primary vacuum!
I bought this for quick pick-ups from the kids and dogs. I have a puppy that likes to destroy anything stuffed. This works great in sucking up any mess she makes, chewed crayons, stuffing, paper, etc. I have even managed to pick up a sock or two. I didn't buy this to be my primary vacuum. I have used this for 6 months without any charging issues. It does what I expected it to do on carpet or my hard wood flooring. Cleans up quick messes without issue. I am very satisfied with it.
