      Great buy but a few flaws

      I was very happy to get the Bissel Powerglide Lift-Off Pet Plus vacuum for our house. Our older (2003) Bissel model was getting on in years. Right out of the box, the instructions on how to assemble this item were pretty much clear except for how the tools go in the holders. I eventually figured it out , though. Unfortunately, I was unable to use the bonus Fabreze filter. I opened the bag, took it out and started sneezing from the strong scent. BUt I have to say that many scents do bother me. So do not allow this to discourage you, as most will probably be ok with the filter. As for the usage of the vacuum, the directions seemed to be clear but I could not figure out how to get the item to recline. After looking all over the piece, I finally noticed a shoe symbol on top of the brush head housing. It would be nice if this little tip could be in the manual next time. I didn't have a hard time pushing it around, even though the unit is VERY heavy. The swiveling of the front of the vacuum was a nice addition. Our previous one does not have that. But I will say that our older one does have the capability to go flat on the ground. This way you can really get under tables and , sofas, and chairs. This one only reclines a little, not flat to the floor. I vacuumed our carpet with and without the roller brush. It did a great job at getting up all the dirt and debris. It's also not that loud which is nice. I did use the hose with the pet attachment for our gauzy curtains. I reduced the suction(good feature) and found that even though I did that, the brush inside the attachment kinda got in the way. It would be great if they could just have something like a tube with holes or a smooth triangle to do those types of jobs. This tool may work better on different types of curtains. It does work really well on chairs and pillow, though.And I can now stop buying all those sticky rollers to clean our lamp shades because this works so much better. The stairs, I used the crevice tool. I know the manual states that the pet attachment would be more appropriate but our carpets are falling apart. So I did not want to mess up the tool for future use. Also, when I went to clean the steps, I detached the canister from the base. Fairly straightforward to remove and reattach. But if you need to vacuum the second floor one will HAVE to detach the canister from the base and carry each unit up the stairs separately.The vacuum, as a whole, as previously stated, is VERY heavy. Emptying the dust cup is a bit of a challenge. The older Bissel that we own, we just have to swing a lever, the cup comes down and we empty it. With this model, the cup is a LOT larger and the bottom drops out after pressing the release button. A bit more of a mess than our previous one. Taking it apart in order to clean the filters was a little tough to do. There's a purple ring holding in the round filter that is pretty difficult to get off the base. As was pulling apart the plastic cylinder inside the dust cup. One has to twist and pull and frankly I thought my hand was going to come off. But the door for the HEPA filter was much easier to remove. Replacing it on the unit was a bit tricky. I was able to accomplish it finally. Cleaning the inside of the vacuum and the dust cup was a so much better than out older one. NO matter what I do I cannot get that one clean. With this model, use a duster from a certain company beginning with 'S'. Works wonders for the unit. Overall, I would recommend this for your home even though there are a few challenges. I think this vacuum, in short,would make a wonderful addition to any home.BONUS>>>> Bissel is donating 10$ per vacuum if you buy this model. Very cool

      Good replacement for existing Bissell

      This is the second Bissell unit we have owned. The first one served us well until the external agitator brush broke. Everything has worked great for 5 years until daughter graduated college and now is moving out! (YES!) So she said she needed a vacuum cleaner so I cleaned up the old one very well, replaced all the filters and bought this new unit. Comparing it to the old (model 89q9) with this one is very drastic change to say the least. But will say it is a lot quieter and lighter than the old one. The motor offers more amps than the next model up and does not have a front light (big deal). The unit works great! The power cord is longer than my original but it fits a little tight in its holder. Getting used the swivel action is interesting but get the concept when making tight turns. (Sounds like I am driving a sports car that sucks!) Anyway, the collection bin is slightly smaller and seems to me that I had to empty it more frequently. My thinking is this new one is picking up more than the original one was. The external agitator tool works great on stairs and like how the main piece separates from the base so you can take it with you on stairs. (both models I own have this feature - a MUST) I do like the snazzy way you can empty the dirt from the container without getting it on your hands, just make sure that you tap it slightly to release more of the dirt. There is an extra tool that comes with it called the "pet hair eraser tool" that works okay , but takes some getting used to. Anyway, for the price of this unit, you really can't go wrong and highly recommend this if you have pets and don't want to fork over $500 for a Dyson.

      Canister is cool

      I like the fact the hose and top of the unit can separate, making cleaning steps and around small areas a lot easier. Suction is great, and it doesn't seem to clog as much as previous bagless models I've had. the only reasons I did not give it 5 starts, it that I used to have a model that had the self winding cord, and didn't realize how much I liked that feature until I had to wrap up this cord. the only other thing I did not like was the "floppiness" (if that's even a word) of the handle when in upright mode. I guess it is to get around objects and not be as ridged, but the handle can tilt from side to side. Good concept, but with so much weight in the top of the unit, my wife has issues getting it to go where she wants, hence making me do the vacuuming. Hmm.... wait a minute I sense a plot brewing!

      Worse vacuum for anyone

      Within a month after purchasing the vacuum the belt came off. I was able to put the belt back on. After two more uses it came off again. I called Bissell customer service and they sent me a new belt. This belt coming off has happened over 20 times now. Bissell has sent me 1 new belt and 1 new roller. Bissell will not replace the vacuum cleaner although it malfunctions. I have had 2 other Bissell vacuums in the past with no problems. I am discussed with the way that Bissell is handling my situation. I would not recommend this vacuum for my worse enemy!

      I'm very happy with my Bissell PowerGlide. I've had my Bissell several weeks now and it's performing wonderfully. I live in a small cabin and I needed something that was going to allow me to vacuum tiles floor, carpet AND walls. Bissell's liftoff technology allows me to really move around the cabin and dust, vacuum and clean up any dog hair. The unit comes with the pet and corner attachments. Bissell's PowerGlide performs great - the price point is good. I would highly recommend this product if you need a great vacuum that is great on any surface.

      Died quickly

      We loved this product until it died after only 3 months. After reading reviews and receiving a rave review from a friend we made the purchase only for it to die 3 months later. It now grabs the carpet and spits everything back on the floor. So disappointed. I did not purchase a warranty and the return date has expired. I’m purchasing a Dyson when there is a good sale on one.

      Excellent Vacuum

      I purchased this vacuum over others based on reviews I'd read. I don't have a pet but I figured if it was strong enough for homes with pet hair, it would be good enough for me. After the first use, I was pleased with the pickup (as could really be seen in the clear tank). I didn't even realie there was that much on my carpet and it got it all!! I will say it's a LITTLE heavier than what I would like. Otherwise, I have no complaints thus far.

      The belt keeps coming off

      The belt for the roller brush keeps coming off. Which requires taking 8 or 9 screws out to remove the bottom cover. Then you have to squeeze the belt back around the shaft and pull it over the roller. Then replace bottom cover and screws. I finally cut a small piece of wood to fill the gap between the shaft and housing to make it more difficult for the belt to come off.
