Excellent VacuumAugust 24, 2016
As a dog owner, I was quite pleased to have the opportunity to review the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Upright Vacuum. We have two indoor dogs who love nothing more than shedding on our rugs. Unboxing: The vacuum cleaner is well-packaged and easy to remove from the box. The colors are quite striking when you first see them in person. Setup: Instructions are clear and easy to follow. A few things, like installing the multi-tool holder instead of the single holder, take so much force that you may be afraid of breaking something. Don't be. It is designed to hold tightly and to remove only with significant force. Use: First impression is that the vacuum is a bit heavy. That is particularly noticeable given the pivot joint at the base. The pivot makes it easy to corner, but it also takes some getting use to if you are coming from a fixed lower vacuum unit, as I was. Once you get used to it, though, the weight isn't really a factor, unless you have to lug it up or down stairs. I appreciated the pivoting base. It made vacuuming around furniture much easier. It also allowed the top of the vacuum to get much closer to the floor than many other vacuums while the front suction area maintained contact with the floor. I liked the fact there was one switch for suction and another switch for the floor brush. I could turn the brush off and effectively use the vacuum as a dust mop. Suction power is adjustable and seems more than adequate. The clever design of taking the top handle out as the hose extension is nice. It allows you to get little stuff you otherwise couldn't reach with a regular vacuum. Features: There is an air freshener filter built in. It is washable. At first, the scent is quite strong, but it fades over time. The handle detaches into an extendable hose which can accept multiple attachments. This is quite handy. The brush, which is marketed as tangle-free, has not yet gotten tangled with fur or hair. Due to the design of the canister that collects the trash (and fur) from the floor, you can easily empty all the hair without much trouble. Overall: I have been very happy with this vacuum. It has become my new upright vacuum of choice.

Keeps up with 6 cats and a black Lab.August 24, 2016
Our household has six cats and a black lab, so I was very excited to try out this new vacuum. We have a mix of carpet and hardwood floors and our main vacuum has been a Kenmore canister vacuum. We go through a lot of bags with it because of all the hair, so I was very interested to see how well a bagless worked. Overall, I was pretty impressed. After doing the whole house and emptying the canister 3 or 4 times, there was still zero hair tangled in the roller. The canister was easy to empty, as advertised. It did a great job cleaning up hair, litter, and every little visible speck of debris. Best of all, the hand vacuum attachment (TurboEraser) worked surprisingly well on the stairs. I think any pet owner would be pleased with this vacuum. There are a couple of things that are just slightly disappointing, though not deal breakers by any means. One is the noise. It's about the same level of noise as our other vacuums, but I had hoped that being a design targeted at pet owners they might have somehow made it quieter. However, the first priority is that it works well (which it does), and if it still terrorizes the cats then that's the price we have to pay. The second was the placement of the on/off switches on the body instead of the handle. I understand why they do this, but I still found myself wanting to flip the switch on the handle each time (like my other vacuums). Also, having two switches--one for the main power and one for the floor roller--was a bit of a nuisance. If you push the handle to the upright and locked position it does automatically turn off the roller, however. Everything else about the vacuum I liked. It has a nice, long 30' power cord that's easy to wrap in its brackets on the back. The optional two-tool bracket worked well to hold the crevice tool and TurboEraser. The slightly smaller head and the swivel feature made it so I could easily reach in corners that are more challenging to the larger vacuums. It was also fun to watch the hair build up in the canister "tornado" as I ran over the hairy spots in the carpet. Anything that makes vacuuming a little more entertaining is a plus. I was a little worried that it'd be tippy on the stairs while using the TurboEraser, but the floor roller is narrow enough that I was able to turn the unit sideways on the steps and it was very stable. I was very skeptical that the TurboErase would work since it's only powered by airflow across the little paddle wheel inside. We had another brand of vacuum with that design and it was useless. In this case, however, it worked extremely well and really scrubbed at the carpet. I guess they aren't kidding by calling it "turbo" because it really does add a high-pitched, extra noise while it's working. Good for cleaning, not so good for cat ears (but they got over it). One final thing I noticed is that you really do need to set it to the correct carpet height setting. At first, I had it on the default setting and thought "what a dumb vacuum--it's not picking up anything on the rug." Then my wife pointed out I should try the lower setting and, sure enough, it worked perfectly after that. The only problem later was cleaning the few small rugs we have around on the hardwood floors. The suction works so well, I had to keep one foot somewhere on the rug while I was vacuuming to keep it from sliding around. This isn't a problem with our Kenmore canister, but then it also doesn't clean the rugs as thoroughly. So, I will happily switch to using this for all of our regular vacuuming of pet areas and I think it'll be a good investment. Now if only Bissell would come out with a "Dog Drool Eraser(tm)" for the carpets.

Excellent Upright Pet VacuumAugust 24, 2016
We have tried most of the vacuum brands and there were certain things we didn't like about it. Bought the Pet Hair Eraser® Upright Vacuum and using it for two weeks. It outperforms other vacuums by far. With the other vacuums the brushes were always getting filed with hair from our dog and my wife / daughter's long hair, and we always had to reach inside the canister to pull out debris. In Pet Hair Eraser, nothing on the brush and the canister empties out perfectly. It makes our carpet look beautiful when we are done. We can't say enough good about this vacuum. I really liked the idea of Febreze® Pet Odor Eliminator™ filtration to erase pet odors and freshen as you vacuum. There are nice features in this vacuum listed below. Tangle-free brush roll to help eliminate hair wrap Hands-free empty tank with the Patented Cyclonic Pet Hair Spooling System™ Specialized Pet Tools to easily remove embedded pet hair from hard-to-reach places SmartSeal™ Allergen System that helps trap dirt and allergens inside the vacuum Febreze® Pet Odor Eliminator™ filtration to erase pet odors and freshen as you vacuum Suction Channel Technology™ for powerful, edge-to-edge cleaning Swivel steering, multi-surface cleaning, and quick-release wand If you have pets, please don't look back and buy this vacuum.

Premium Vacuum Cleaner!!!September 20, 2016
In our household of four cats, cleaning is almost a daily chore. It seems every time rooms are cleaned and dusted, even more cat hair appears. As such, I was curious to see how this Bissell Pet Eraser would hold up in comparison to our older vacuum cleaner. I decided to give this a test and what a difference this vacuum cleaner made! Upon first inspection out of the box, the vacuum cleaner felt well constructed. It was slightly lighter than our previous one, but not by much. Physically, the vacuum cleaner has an average size; it felt smaller than our other one which was actually quite nice. In the box, we find several accessories for cleaning; most of which are most common: a baseboard tool which has a LED light on it and the pet eraser tool for carpet. It also came with a Febreze pre-motor filter which had a pleasant scent. In addition, the cleaning hose is actually the handle for the whole unit as opposed to our old one where the hose was separate from the handle. This feature was quite nice as it felt more compact than our older unit. Furthermore, located on the left side are the power button and an on/off switch for the rollers. This prevents overheating and was probably one of the best features as I personally had burned a spot in the carpet with the old vacuum cleaner so this was definitely a big plus. At the bottom on the left side, you will notice the green knob that is turned when you want to alternate between regular vacuuming with the rollers or clean with the hose. It will take some time to get used to this, but it is extremely important to remember. A couple times I forgot and realized it was not sucking. After using it a few times it should become a habit. I recommend alternating between floor and hose cleaning on stair cases or any room; remembering to change the knob will become a habit before you know it. On the front of the unit, at the bottom, you will find the adjustment for the vacuum cleaner. Upon first use, I could really feel difference from the third, second and last setting (bare floor). It should be noted that based on your particular carpet and the setting, its performance will vary. As per the instructions, you would want to set it to where you can feel the most resistance. Since our carpet is quite old, the bare floor setting was used. Surprisingly, it still felt pretty resistant when vacuuming even on this setting. Also, a blue LED light around the floor adjustment knob illuminates when the rollers are engaged after it is removed from its upright position. I also noticed that, while cleaning the staircase, the rollers will automatically switch off when it is clicked back into the upright position. Another note is that the swivel of the base took some time to get used to. This was especially felt on the first few vacuuming sessions as our old one had only linear movements. In some places, it actually felt like it helped; others, for example, when I was cleaning the stairs with both methods, it was a bit difficult to guide the cleaner over each step. Also, when I used the baseboard tool, I noticed the slit wasn't as wide as the tool that came with the older vacuum cleaner. However, it still worked and I could still get in those tight spots around the baseboard. Suction was fairly decent, although when I compared it to our older vacuum cleaner, it wasn't as powerful. Bissell has this listed as 8.5 amps and our older one was listed as 12 amps, however, I have no doubt the Bissell is more efficient in its power management. This also did not seem to affect its ability to clean as all the areas I have used it looked spotless. Also, when it was turned on, it was not as loud as our older one which was another benefit. As with electronics, specifications sometime mislead on paper, so I would advise to go in with an open mind. It performs fantastically with just the few rooms that I tested it on. On the stairs, the pet eraser tool worked perfectly. I was able to put a bit of force to really buff up some of the cat hair that was buried in the carpet. Despite the lower suction, it was not weak or had any issues picking up cat hair. In summary, the Bissell Pet Eraser Vacuum cleaner is an amazing product. I would recommend it especially if your household is pet heavy like mine is and if its price can fit within your budget. At its price tag, it may deter some people away as naturally it might be out of reach for some. However, given its overall performance it does not disappoint and aside from a couple of the quirks that I mentioned, it could perhaps be one of the best vacuum cleaners that I have personally used. As for its cons, they are minor considering how much this vacuum cleaner performed. It is definitely worth a try and seemingly the cat hair is now under control. It might just prove to be the hair eraser you were looking for! Pros: *Roller on/off switch to prevent burning of carpet; overheat protection and rollers click off when it is shifted back to upright position. *Cleaning hose is attached and used as the handle during normal vacuuming; gives a more compact appearance and feel. *Pet Eraser Tool cleaned the stairs perfectly; Able to apply a good deal of force along the base of each stair to remove tons of hair. * Operates quieter than our older vacuum cleaner. Cons: *The swivel movement took some time to get used to. Works well for some areas. *The baseboard tool isn't as wide as our previous tool from the older vacuum cleaner. *Slightly difficult to use the main rollers on the stairs due to its loose base. *Takes some time getting used to adjusting the suction knob when switching between hose and floor cleaning modes.

Found a replacement for my DysonAugust 29, 2016
Don't get me wrong, I liked my Dyson but somehow it disappeared from my home. I was hoping to find an alternative to spending Dyson $$$. Having pets and a wife with allergies, a few things I look for are hepa filtration, bagless (I hate the cost of bags), easy to maneuver and not two heavy. The bonus items are no bags of attachments I have to store and it has a few attachments. This vacuum does have all that. On-board storage for the attachments, a retracting hose from the handle hepa filtration and great maneuverability. I just had new carpet installed two months ago so it is not exactly filthy but even after vacuuming with my Shark vacuum this thing pulled up container after container of animal hair and dirt. One really nice feature is the rotating brush is configured so that long hair doesn't wrap around it; magical! Also when you empty the canister, I haven't had to reach inside it to grab stuff out. It all comes out when you hit the release. Great investment!!

If you are a pet owner you must own this!August 24, 2016
I have a gargoyle blooded bulldog in my household. That I love to death and adore. I would do anything for my best friend but she has a problem, she sheds out of this world. Leaving her hair everywhere all over my floor. My old vacuum just wasn't cutting it when picking up her hair. So when I had a chance to try Bissell's Pet Hair vacuum I was ecstatic. The vacuum that's engineered for pets that built from the ground up really delivers on every single thing the box promised. Opening the box you are greeted with instructions of everything within the box. There are even steps to take out the vacuum easily from the box. You also have customer support information and donations information for savepets. Assembly is the most tedious part of this vacuum in my opinion. The instructions are detailed but will have you spend way more time putting it together then you think. Design wise it looks great with hints of a very bright lime green, giving it that "sports car" look. But overall Its pretty much your standard modern vacuum with pet branding all over it. It has a swivel that hits the corners at the right angles picking up all the hair. There are constant reminders about using the floor suction and hose/tool suction knob so you never forget to turn it. Right away you can see the tangle free brush roll that delivers at the bottom. There is a switch to toggle this on and off near the power button. The tangle doesn't get tangled with my bulldog hair at all when in use. This was the single most annoying thing to untangle my bulldogs hair from my older vac so having this was a godsend to pet owners. Even worst is removing hair from dirt tank compartment from clogs. This vacuum eliminates all of that due to the "Pet hair eraser" a system where the pet hair always remain loose and doesn't clog up the rest of the dirt tank compartment. Does it work? YES! Yes it does and so well! No longer all of the dirt and hair is trapped. All you do is release the dirt compartment over the trash and all falls right out. Honestly it also work for long female hair on the ground too. Finally a Spooling system that works. Their is a multi-surface switch which gives you control of the height, I've tried 3 different settings (I to III carpet height) which worked well enough for me. Also let's talk about the truth that all pet owners have to go through one way or another in time...smell. All pets have an certain odor and my bulldog is no exception to this rule. One intriguing and interesting thing about this vacuum is their is an Febreze deodorizer filter that eliminates pet odor. For the most part it works filling up my room with a nice, fresh, and pleasant smell killing any other odors. The filters are washable according to Bissell and you can also order more Febreze from the company website. They also throw in a $1 off coupon for all the febreze air care products. This vacuum have specialized pet tools for you to reach places that are hard to reach. I decided to try using this on a ceiling fan, steps, and behind the sofa just to try it out with pet hair. The handle releases as the tool for you to use. Also comes with a 2-in-1 pet brush that lets you pick up hair from delicate surfaces. As expected it works just fine picking up hair. I used the LED light at the edge of the tool behind the sofa and for the most part it does the trick. The LED light isn't that bright but it's enough to do the job. If you are looking at this a stand alone vacuum without pets it's awesome but you wouldn't be taking advantages of the pet features it's deigns for. If that's what you are looking for I would say try one of others cheaper Bissell vacuums. BUT as a Pet Vacuum this thing is a monster for picking up pet hair (Even long human hair.) I never been happier to own a vacuum cleaner before. All of this combined with the 5-Year warranty and a $10 donation to Bissell's pet foundation you could not go wrong. I would certainly recommend this product to anyone with a pet easily. You MUST have it.

Very heavyAugust 25, 2016
The Bissell Pet Hair Eraser vacuum was packaged well. Once opened, it was easy to assemble. The handle had to be clicked in to the base, attach the hose and insert the filter. It also comes with a few different attachments that can be used. I particularly liked the hand tool with the LED light. To operate, you have to really push to release the handle, turn on the power switch and then separately turn on the roller brush. You can adjust the level of the brush to fit the different types of flooring. The noise level is very loud, louder than other vacuums I've owned. The vacuum is extremely heavy and difficult to steer and maneuver. The swivel handle and low profile of the vacuum is nice but it's so hard to turn and steer. I would not be able to use this vacuum on stairs due to it's weight. The canister is clear so you can see when it needs to be emptied. And with a push of the button you can empty into the trash. As for the suction ability, it seemed very strong, which is good for picking up hair and crumbs. Overall, the vacuum seems to be an average vacuum.

Good for long haired dog ownersAugust 11, 2016
Seems to be working quite well. I have a husky that sheds quite a bit. The vacuum seems to be able to handle it. Wouldnt mind a little more power overall. Solid vacuum...
