Rated 5 out of 5Â by Shellgram Love this little sweeper!
This is now the 3rd Bissell Featherweight Stick Vac I have purchased over the course of several years. It is a wonderful cleaning tool to be used on hard floors of any kind. It has great suction, gets under hard to reach places, and is easy to clean. Every couple of uses I like to use my regular vacuum cleaner hose and attachment to vacuum the outside of the filter, keeping it extra clean for better suction. I have used this sweeper for many years in several homes, and I just purchased this one for my freshman son to keep his dorm room clean. Hopefully he will use it!! :-)
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Eaglegrandma So so product, but very economical
I've used my new vac just once so far, on my ceramic kitchen floor; but it doesn't seem to be particularly powerful. The main problem seems to be that it is basically a hand vacuum with an additional handle & floor tool you can snap on. This would not be a problem in itself, but the original hand vacuum has only a small 2-3" opening slot on the bottom. When you snap on the floor tool, it glides nicely, but it only seems to pick up things that are directly under the opening slot. I may find that I'm seeing it incorrectly, but I don't think so. It seems incapable of doing any edge cleaning at all when the floor tool is attached. Also, the filter inside the dirt cup is very messy to clean. All in all, I think there must be better options available.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by gentlezephyr Great vacuum but lacking one thing
This vacuum has a very high quality and does what it says. I use it for my hardwood floors and kitchen. It picks up decent amount of dust, hair, cheerios that my son drops. The only think i wish it had was to be able to pick up from a rug or carpet. I don't even care if it wasn't a strong carpet vacuum but I have a rug on my wood floors and this bissel just doesn't work on carpet at all. I have to pull out my other vacuum to do the rug. What's the point if I have to run and get another vacuum just to dust off my rug on the hardwood. This would be the only reason i would give it a 4 and not a 5 star.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by danijwms Great value!
I bought this broom vac for my son to vacuum downstairs. Dragging the Dyson down the stairs every time was cumbersome. This is his new "chore vac" that he breaks out after dinner to sweep the kitchen, living room, and dining room. Picks up everything on the bamboo rug in the living room, and does fairly well on the fabric rugs in the living room and downstairs bathrooms. We have a rat terrier that sheds hair that can be like little needles sticking in everything. This vac picks up all the hair on the floor and does decently as a hand vac for spot hair removal from the furniture.
