    Great vacuum for quick cleanup

    We're trying a robovac + spot cleanup vacuum and this vacuum fits the bill for the second half of the partnership. It has strong suction, easy docking, easy emptying without having to touch a bunch of dust. I was concerned about having to touch the filter having seen how it comes apart before buying it. I've had other small vacuums where the filter comes off the back of the dust bin so you have to pull it out to empty the bin. I personally dislike this process. With this vacuum, you spin a scraper to get debris off the filter and, as a result, you have a handle to hold right in the middle of the filter and nothing gets on you if you're careful. One star missing because it does only a fair job on anything but hard surfaces and the attachments have a frustrating tendency to want to fall off while you're using them. These are related problems since you must use attachments to get decent suction on furniture. Overall, very happy though.

    Anticipating Failure

    This is the third Bissell Bolt I've had since July 2017. The first two were the 12 volt model. One died on the second use, the next died a few months later. I was upgraded to this version since they don't carry that one anymore (curious) and I was hopeful that it would be better. I am charging it for the third time today and the roller brush turns on when the plug sits a certain way. The whole vacuum doesn't turn on, just the motorized brush. I am giving this one star because I've had it for almost two weeks and it is already malfunctioning. I don't expect it to last to the spring. I am never buying a Bissell again.

    Works only if the battery works

    Really want this broom to work as it is light weight and not to strong in suction power. However, the battery die after 3 months. Best buy replace one and last another 4 month with infrequent use. Bought 4 years of warranty hoping the service plan will cover 4 years of usage. Unfortunately, best buy said the maximum replace is 2. If you reach the max number of replacement, no warranty anymore. So BE VERY CAREFUL what the warranty means. In this case. both replacements died within 7 months. When the broom died, it still looks like new. Think again and AGAIN. Do you really want to buy this.

    I bought this vacuum to replace an old, plug-in stick vac from college that didn't have too much power. We also have a large upright vacuum, but since moving into a house with no carpeting whatsoever, it's just taking up space. This new vacuum takes up very little space and is a great tool for our home. It makes it super easy to clean under the bed and remove the hand vac to get those hard to reach places. Since buying it two days ago, I've used it about 6 times. It's super easy just to pick up off of the charger and go for little messes or even for big messes like cat litter and cereal spills.

    Great, small, light weight vaccuum

    This vacuum is great for a small apartment. We have carpet and hardwood floors and this vacuum works on both surfaces so my broom is hardly used (Sorry, Broom, you are useless now). I love the removable canister/bag area so I can easily dump out the mess it picks up and it is easy to clean. (FYI, this part is pretty nasty because you can see all the dirt, dust, and hair the vacuum picks up!) Plus, it becomes a handheld vacuum if needed. The only down side is that some times it takes a few times to suck up some visible pieces on the carpet, but a few run throughs isn't going to hurt.

    It worked better than expected. Vacuuming with no cable attached, allowed me to move freely all around. I was able to vacum the rug in my room very nicely. There was not much space under my king bed, so I set it flat and I was able to vacum totally horizontal under the bed. Also, I love the little brush that comes with the extensions. That allowed me to vacum in between the slots of the wooden door that covers the air conditioner in the livingroom

    Better then my old Shark Stick Vacuum

    I have a small apartment with no carpeting only hard wood floors. I also have a cat that sheds like there's no tomorrow, and kids that like to leave crumbs everywhere they travel. This thing picks up everything, with out blowing light debris out the sides like my old Shark vacuum. No longer do I have to sweep or use Swiffers. Plus I can detach the hand unit and vacuum my car out (that works just ok since the motorized brush isn't attached). It's also light enough to carry up and down the stairs to vacuum the common walk way of my apartment. Battery life is perfect for what I need.

    So my husband gives me specific instructions on what type of vacuum he wants for the new house and I buy this one which is not what he ordered. It is perfect for the house which is mostly hard wood flooring. This vacuum goes from rugs to hardwood with ease and is so flexible it moves around all the furniture. The only minor issue is the debris reservoir is kind of small but I don't mind cleaning it often; it's super easy. I told the man that he can go buy his own, I am keeping this one!

    Maybe unfair, but rating is based on its performance on a basement concrete floor (hey, they advertise it as being very good on bare floors). Generally, I find that spinning brushes perform only moderately well on bare floors -- no exception here. particles, such as stray cat litter mostly seemed to be propelled around the floor. The filter clogged up very quickly with cat hair. not recommended if you have hairy pets. it is light and it works - best I can say.

    This vacuum is perfect for small to average home space. It sucks up pet hair easily...for the price it is an awesome buy! The charge (battery) lasts fairly long as well for the amount of suction. I would recommend for anyone with pets. I bought it for my brother who has a German Shepard that sheds incredibly. He loves it and stands by it as well! I think I will purchase one eventually for myself! Hope this review helps! :)

    As pet owners we've been through countless vacuums both cheap and not-so-cheap. This is hands-down the best we've found. The cordless feature prevents the usual "snagging of the cord cursing fit" that typically occurs halfway through your clean up and the swivel action allows for vacuuming in spots that haven't seen any action in a while. The cat hair tumbleweeds don't stand a chance. Maintains a charge through the entire home and then some. Easy to clean, too.

    Great cordless vaccum

    This swivel head allows you to control the vaccum with easy as it rolls around the house. It works on both hardwood and area rugs and is great at getting the pet hair off couches, pillows, and blankets. The battery lasts a while and I have no problem getting the whole house done without it dying. The roller gets trapped with hair quite frequently which causes the vaccum to not work properly so make sure you clean it out.

    This vac comes with an easily detachable hand-held cordless unit that is good for quick cleanups (such as popcorn around my chair). It also functions as a standard cordless "floor broom" that is adequate for vacuuming low pile rugs and wood floors. It charges atop a docking station. Although the power is modest, it does well for light jobs and the low weight is a plus. I use it often for quick jobs and have yet to exhaust its charge. I suspect that it is good for 20 to 30 minutes of continuous use - perhaps longer.

    This vacuum cleaner is very compact and easy to empty. The filter is washable. It's a great all-in-one vacuum for both bare floors and carpet, and with the detachable compartment also works well for vacuuming furniture. It's not the most powerful vacuum and because the tank is small it fills up quickly, but for the size and price I feel it's worth the money.

    I absolutely love this little vac!!! I have a very nice one that deep cleans better and use it occasionally, But, probably 50 to 1, this is the one I grab first . Light, easy to use and does a really good job on all floor types and pet hair . Easy to keep nearby vs. the larger one that is out of sight . I've told a couple of friends to just get it, you'll like it! :-)

    Nice, Fast, Lightweight Vaccuum

    Essentially this Bissell Bolt is a lightweight rechargeable Dustbuster on a stick with wheels with a spinning brush. The Dustbuster part detaches as itself. It is relatively quiet, easy to use and maintain, and has a nice futuristic industrial design. Great for fast and light cleaning jobs. Don't use on thick carpets or for liquid spills. I highly recommend its value for the price. Also note: I would give it one more star if the the vaccuum worked on thicker carpets.

    Why Did I Wait So Long?

    I’ve been wanting a cordless broom/vac for years, but my pantry/kitchen closet didn’t have an electrical outlet. So I put it off and off. Now that the kitchen reno is almost finished and the electrical outlet installed in the kitchen, I don’t know how I lived without this machine. Thanks, Bissell. I’ll keep my new kitchen much cleaner.

    Light, maneuverable, and easy to use. Fits easily into the charging base. Very handy is the detachable hand-held vac and little dustbin attachment. Reviews we read in advance indicated it was excellent on bare floors but only average on carpets. That is not our experience. It does equally well on any surface. Our carpets are short height, so we don't know how the vac would perform on deeper carpets.

    After using a very similar product by Electrolux, I am very pleased with this vacuum cleaner. It is easy to handle and the batteries last for a few hours like the instructions say. The only thing I miss is the light on the bottom front.... I have a small dog and it does pick up dog hair perfectly. It has great positions for getting even underneath the couch.

    I had the other bolt vacuum while owning a pet and it did not went well for me. So i tried this one and it really works very well with good suctioning power. The only downfall is that if your pet has long hair like mine, the hairs tend to accumulate like a ball on the flap when suctioning and that tends to make the vacuums suctioning less effective making you have to empty the canister more than often.
