Absolutly the best!!

By Myne201 from Kansas City, MO, USA on 09/14/2015

Makes cleaning so easy and emptying the canister doesn't make any extra messes to clean up. Going from kitchen floors to cleaning the couch is one button.

Meh

By liv123 from Austin, TX, USA on 08/02/2015

Alright, I'm going to tell you right now. If you have animals that are constantly shedding this is not the vacuum for you. I have a German Shepherd and a Boxer. I swear it seems like my GSD leaves a trail of hair behind her when she is walking. I don't have any carpet in my house aside from some area rugs. It has its good and bad features. Pros: It's very lightweight, and easy to maneuver. It does a great job sucking up hair and dirt. The detachable hand vac is nice. I like that the top portion of the handle can be flipped down so that it's not taking up tons of space wherever you store it. The washable filter is great. It's convenient for quick cleanups. Cons: The cordless factor. I don't know what I was thinking. I feel like I have to race through my house with it before it loses charge. And I have a small house. I'm sure some cordless vacs hold a charge longer, this one does not. The charge lasts longer if you switch it to the first setting without the rotating bristles going, but I stopped even bothering with that because it starts scattering stuff everywhere, doesn't pick up the hair after like 10 seconds, and when you lift the vacuum up (turned off) it barfs dirt and hair all over the floor. It just doesn't have much suction without the bristle setting. It's nice for zipping around as a daily thing, but there's no way I could vacuum thoroughly without it dying. IF YOU HAVE CARPET do not buy this!!! It will murder the battery charge in 30 seconds, I'm serious. It does that with my area rugs. Also, when it's charging, the light glows red, but it never changes to green or whatever, you just have to guess if its done charging. Because of all the hair my dogs shed, I have to stop and empty the vacuum out like 5 times. I guess to sum it up, it's not a bad vacuum, it just doesn't work very well for what I need it to. I like it, but I'm going to buy a sturdier one with a cord for deeper cleanups.

No battery life

By JOrtega from Orlando, FL on 06/22/2015

After charging the vacuum as instructed I went to use it and it lasted a whole ten minutes. It had great pick up in those ten minutes but not worth the money for only 10 minutes of battery. Very disappointed. I'm going to have to return or see if Bissell can send a new battery and give it another try.

Didn't last six months

By Gracie from Minnesota on 05/31/2015

This is the worst stick vacuum I've ever had and I paid the most for I thought it would be something easier for me to use. I barely had a chance to use it before it quit charging. I had a different brand before which lasted about three years. I would not buying this I'm really disappointed

Great picker upper!

By Bissell Fan from Rhode Island, USA on 05/20/2015

Had a "little" issue with the 1st one, but Bissell Consumer Care Rep, Kailynne, took care of it, and we're back as Bissell fans! We have a big hairy dog, and this thing does a great job for daily clean on the hardwoods, and I was pleasantly surprised to see it do so well on the carpets. Time will tell, but so far, very pleased.

This is one of the best cordless vacumes

By Evey 23 from KY on 03/18/2015

I love this vacuum for several reasons. #1 It's cordless, #2 It has a hand held vacuum and #3 it has a extension on the hand held vacuum which lets you get into crevices of chairs (etc.) Eve

Disappointed

By Catherine from Omaha, NE, USA on 03/08/2015

When the vacuum was new a few months ago it was a perfect fit for use in my new house. Now, the battery won't charge and it is a stick of plastic taking up room in my closet. I would not recommend.

would not buy again

By joyce9353 from Macon, GA, USA on 01/22/2015

The first time I used it was fine. Since then not so much. I have low-pile rugs and tile and hardwood and this vac doesn't do much good on any of them. It tends to make little piles but doesn't pick up the trash, just spits it back out, either from the back or just drops it from the front brush/roller. I have emptied it, cleaned the filter, cleaned the uptake hose and nothing improves the suction. I'm really disappointed in this product although I've always trusted Bissell.

53Y8 in red from Target, second one... neck failure x2

By JoshGrey from Los Angeles, CA, USA on 01/13/2015

I doubt i'm covered under a warranty, but I did return my first 53Y8 Lift Off to Target, got another one but was told I couldn't return it twice, and it's failing again. the part were the body rotates is NOT sturdy enough to use as a "stick vac" and gets weaker every use. I only use it about once every 2 weeks, and it's already on its last leg. Love the Bissell brand, and the rest of the 53Y8 is easy enough to use, but this model is just poorly engineered to do what it says it should be used for. Disappointed.

New Hardwood floors

By picky chef from Florida, USA on 12/28/2014

I am in the process of putting in hardwood floors and looking for an easy way to keep them clean, I purchased this as a gift for my girlfriend, and after using it my self I was impressed how well it did, I had also put in area rugs in the rooms that are completed and this machine had no problem with that as well and the handle feature is great, especially under the air conditioner handler, easy to empty and maneuver, I highly recommend this product., you might not think that the run time is sufficient, but it is more than long enough to get the job done, once a month I might pull out the heavy duty machine. So far every piece of equipment I have purchased has been great, and I still use today, I might recommend that you purchase a couple extra filters to have on hand.

Second Purchase of This Vac

By Patsy from Palmetto, FL, USA on 12/21/2014

I have just purchased my second one. We love the convenience and the light weight so might as well strategically place them in our big enough home. The price is right too. Always powerful enough for tiles and rugs and have never had a charging problem. Company is great and we even purchased extra filters so I can wash them and replace immediately. Love the removable hand held vac aspect as needed.

Battery charger

By Froggy from Arlington, VA, USA on 12/17/2014

I love this vacuum. This the third one I have bought. But for some reason this one will not charge up with the charger you gave me. I waited until the vacuum is completely dead. I finally am trying the charger from the last one I bought. I will see. This have bought many Bissell products. This the first problem I have had.

great duel use rechargable

By Swifteagle from Pine Is. Fla. on 12/17/2014

This sweeper is super, the removable hand vac is so handy and the sweeper gets under things and is so easy to use, my regular Bissell house vac can't do that. So easy to clean out too.

Too Bad

By Katie88 from Gurnee, IL on 12/08/2014

I got this last year at Christmas time. It was used according to directions 2-3 times a week at the most. The battery charge only lasts 1 minute or so now. Too bad the battery is not replaceable. When it worked I really liked it. Don't know that I would invest again.

Great for folks with bad back

By JayJay from St. Louis, MO, USA on 11/17/2014

I've dreaded sweeping until I got my Bissel lift off. The bending handle makes it easy to get under things. I mostly have hardwood floors but a few throw rugs. The old round vac used to suck up the rugs and this beauty goes from floor to rug no problem. In also have stairs that were very hard on my back but with this great machine I can remove the hand held get under the riser and the spin head is great on the steps. I would recommend this to anyone. Great little vacuum

Best product I've ever owned

By Sue from Long Island on 11/11/2014

This is the best top surface vac I've ever had. Even my deep pile carpet gets even hair up. Fold so it's out of sight. The charge last so long I could do all my floors and rugs and it's still going. Can't say enough about this product. Love love love it. Have mine two years and use it everyday.

Easy and Effective

By Shannon from Undisclosed on 10/28/2014

I bought this product to quick clean tile floors in our home. Love that it's battery operated so my toddlers and preschooler can easily help vaccum the floors. This product lasted two and a half years of daily use (mostly by little ones) and after a whole lot of dropping and abuse it finally fell apart, quite literally. This product does a great job on hard surfaces, but won't do much for your carpeted areas. It vaccums on hard surfaces just as well as my upright vacuum. A must for any mom with little one's!

Not good unless deep cleaned after every use

By HeraM from Undisclosed on 10/20/2014

I first used it on my carpet, I have three cats and I thought this would be perfect for my 500 sqft apartment, however just one room tires the vacuum that by the time I move to the next room it not only starts dying on me, not the vacuum cup starts getting full, rather the portion of tube which connects the floor part to the stick gets filled up. But then I compared it to the others and I was like hey maybe it is not that bad, after all it has a cordless dustbuster 2n1 ! However the strength of the tiny vacuum is even worse than the actual stick, I used it like they did on the videos, on floor, on minimal carpet pet hair but it did not seem to give me the same results. Yeah it is super light weight and easy to store, but the strength of it is bogus. I cannot imagine deep cleaning the entire stick after every room, I would rather broom. This is not a vacuum for an entire apartment even if it is 500 sqft, this is best for a room with one cat. I am disappointed I wish i spent 10 more dollars to purchase the bagless corded vacuum. This is not for "vacuuming" this seems like it is just for super quick pick up, I actually want my pet hair to be picked up from my carpet as I vacuum my entire apartment, not just tiny areas.

Good for light work . Easy to manuver around furniture

By Hate to Vacuuum from Hemet Ca on 09/29/2014

I bough this for light vacuuming in a small apartment with a cat. Its light and easy to use and does a decent job of picking up light debris and litter. definitely not as powerful as a fullsize but for small jobs its great . HOWEVER , when using the hand vac to clean cat hair off a light beige couch , the red rubber material that the nozzle is made of did leave marks on the couch. These did come out after some rubbing but I would be careful using it on furniture. I suggest Bissell switches to a clear rubber nozzle.

do not waste your money on this useless vacuum.

By BABZ from dayton,ohio on 09/03/2014

shame i bought this from YOU a little over a year ago,or i would ship it back .i am even embarrassed to donate it to charity.leave plugged into charger 24/7 ,and barely used it.got it to use in laundry room to vacuum up dust,lint and small amount of cat litter around the boxes.from the start it had poor suction,took forever and the brush scattered dust and litter.turned off brush and it was just as bad,it was faster to use a broom and dustpan.I have steered people away from purchasing this useless item..i can't even use the hand vac-too weak! i am a platinum customer and expected great things from this like all my other bissell items.this item is a big lemon i am very disappointed am very careful with my things and did not abuse it,it is just a NO POWER DUD!

Poor battery life

By deeb1227 from TN on 08/18/2014

I bought this vacuum for our camper. It cleaned well enough. By the end of the summer it wouldn't keep a charge long enough to clean a 35 ft camper. Now it won't hold a charge for 5 minutes.

Returning this sweeper

By Angel from Southfield, MI, USA on 08/11/2014

Bought this yesterday. Used it for a light vacuuming of my front room although there wasn't much of anything on my carpet what there was it did pick up. Then I used the handheld vacuum and vacuumed my couch. Like my front room carpet there really wasn't much there to pick up, but what was there it got up. This morning I used it on my tile in my kitchen. Everything I tried to pick up with it flipped around in the roller for a few seconds then came out the back over my feet. There's no clog it just doesn't have enough suction on tile.

6 month update

By SnKZabel from Huntington, WV on 07/26/2014

I previously rated this vacuum well. When it works, it works well. Then it started to spit out debris as it picked up. This happened with only 3 months of use, and cleaning the filter/cup out after each use. I read the recommendations on here as it was an issue with many, and bought new filters as we determined that there were no blockages, and this had to be the problem. Well, I'm here to tell you that the problem doesn't go away. Very disappointed. I can no longer recommend this product. Value of the product isn't there if it really only works well for 3 months. I'll stick with my other brand full size upright.

Terrible vacuum

By Es9196 from Indianapolis, IN, USA on 07/25/2014

The reviews on this seemed good, so I bought one. I had to replace a 10 year old sweeper vac that was wearing out. I use this mostly for quick pickup on hard surfaces - kitty litter and crumbs from kids eating. The vacuum does pick up quite a bit, but once you shut it off, a bunch of what you picked up falls right back out onto the floor. I empty the container each time I vacuum and keep the filter cleaned off, but it still doesn't help. If the little purple part at the head of the handheld section is supposed to be a crevice tool, I wouldn't know because I have never been able to pry it out to extend it. If it isn't a crevice tool, I have no idea what useful purpose it serves. It also tends to be difficult to remove the handheld section from the upright body. All around I wish I had never bought this vacuum.

Love this!

By Windtalker Sibes from Sandpoint, ID on 07/14/2014

I love this cordless and handheld vacuum combo. It is perfect for my needs as my space is small. I use it in my 36' Travel Trailer. I have a mini-Aussie and cats, I am a senior, and disabled so I needed a lightweight vacuum that could pick up the hair on both carpet and tile floors. This did the job. Others have said that it doesn't stay charged long enough and I can see in a larger home this might be a problem but I have never had any problems with it running out of juice. I highly recommend for someone wanting something for fast clean-ups without having to drag out the full sized vacuum and all of the attachments. This little vacuum has replaced the need for me to use them and I have moved two canister vacs out to the garage. I'm sold!

Disappointed :-(

By Lab Mom from Milwaukee, WI, USA on 06/30/2014

This vacuum was exactly what I was looking for!! I have a two story house and my entire 1st floor is gorgeous, light color, hard wood floors. I also have at home a very sweet black lab. His black hair is very obvious on my light color floors. I was looking for a better and quicker way to clean up his dog hair and this was my answer!! I have had this vacuum for just over a week and it has been working very well. It picks up the dog hair with no problem and it also works well on the few area rugs we have. Now for the problem. The battery!!! Like I stated my whole 1st floor is hardwood which is about 800 sq. ft. The battery runs out of juice before I can get to the bed rooms. When I start it has a full charge and after about 10-15 min it needs to go back on the charger. The manual states that is takes about 16 hours to charge so... while its charging I grab the broom and finish. I have even tried to make a make-shift "power cord" using a extension cord and the wall charger and that did not work. This is where the disappointment came from. If there was a power cord that you could attach so you can use it when the battery is dead that would be handy. Also, if you have a small area that you plan on using it in it will work great.

Love this!

By LifeisGood from New Hampshire, USA on 06/18/2014

Nice little cordless vac. Easy to clean filter...I use an old toothbrush to clean it. It picks up a lot of junk! Great when I need to clean before using my Bissell steam mop. Love the removable hand vac, too. Bought one for the summer home and liked it so much I bought another one for home. Nice in between lugging out the central vac and LONG hose. Already have a friend buying one also.

Easy and convenient !

By Megme from South Texas on 06/14/2014

Have used this for a week now (nearly daily). Great suction, all the way through till the battery loses power. The optional use of rotar bar is wonderful to switch on for bathroom mats, and off to prevent sending small particles flying. Love that there is no charging base, just a plug. Battery life is roughly 20min. Slender fit, stores easily. No screws or assembly to deal with, functional right out of the box. Would recommend to anyone not wanting to sweep their kitchen daily, this makes that chore much faster and easier.

SURPRISED

By PENNY1548 from Baton Rouge, LA, USA on 06/11/2014

I WAS VERY SURPRISED AT HOW GOOD THIS PRODUCT CLEANED. I HAVE A DOG AND CAT, I HAD NO IDEA HOW MUCH HAIR THEY WERE LEAVING BEHIND. I USE IT ON THE HARD WOOD FLOORS AS WELL AS THE CARPET. I WISH THE CHARGE LAST A LITTLE LONGER. THE SWEVEL HEAD MAKES IT SO MUCH EASIER TO USE. I HAVE AND WILL RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. REMEMBER TO ORDER EXTRA FILTERS, THE ONE THAT COMES WITH IT IS EASY TO CLEAN BUT IT IS A PAPER PRODUCT.

Great Bissell

By del from San Antonio, TX, USA on 03/19/2014

I love my Bissell for what it's intended to do. Although this is my 2nd one (same type) because the first one stopped working and would'nt charge anymore after 1 year. But since I missed it and liked it very well, I opted to purchase another one. Hopefully this one will last me for more than 1 year.

Poor suction & sends larger pieces flying!

By Becca from Tampa, FL, USA on 03/13/2014

We have a toddler & two cats. I was hoping I could use this for quick pick ups & it's letting me down! It doesn't pick up little pieces of cat litter because the suction is so poor! & when the brushes are turned on, it just sends it flying across the room! It can even pick up the dust from a fallen cracker! & the handheld part is useless! I'm better off just using a broom!

Another Great Product

By k9carr from Riverside, CA, USA on 03/08/2014

Every product I have purchased from Bissell has significantly improved my life and this one is no different. I purchased this product to use in between using my full size lift-off vacuum and also to sweep up so i can use my power steam mop more often! I had a dirt devil broom vac for years and years and I loved it. When it died i went back to the old broom and dust pan and when you have pets the old broom and dust pan make no sense whatsoever. So I have been wanting a new one for awhile but I just wasn't sure which one to go with. I knew after my complete satisfaction with Bissell it was going to be a Bissell product. But which one! I finally made the leap and went with the Cordless Lift Off 2 in 1 it just seemed to have the best reviews from other pet owners like myself. I am truly not disappointed, this little thing has a lot of power, so much more power than i ever expected from it. The charge lasts a long time and it is so lightweight and easy to use, i find i am using it even more often that i expected too, oh wait maybe that is because it is shedding time! I have used this product on all surfaces, concrete, tile, linoleum, dog beds, area rugs (where big vacuums suck up the rug this product does not but still gets the hair and dirt up!) Really and truly if you have pets and just want something to pick up the pet hair and dirt in between vacuum time, look no further this is a great little product. Not to mention that it very easily converts to a hand vac! It is very easy to remove and clean and the other thing i love about Bissell products is that you can remove and clean the filters. My only suggestion is to buy an extra set of filters when you make your initial purchase. The filters while they can be rinsed they are a cloth so take a little longer to dry and if you are like me you might find yourself using this thing a couple times a day, if you have the extra filters you will always have one at the ready! Bissell keep up the good work with making products that truly make my life as a pet owner much simpler!

Best Sweeper Ever!!

By Kittles from New York, NY, USA on 03/03/2014

I have owned numerous sweepers, this Bissell Lift-Off is by far the best one. I bought a 2nd one just to hold on to just in case something happens to this one & or it get discontinued. I have convinced a few family members to get it too & they are very happy. It does a great job on wood floors, carpets, tile, etc.

Battery

By Linda from Arlingon Va on 03/02/2014

Only two years old and the battery will not charge any more. I would wait until the charge was down before recharging it like they recommended. I really like the stick vac. It really came handy quick small jobs.

By Char from Canandaigua, NY 14424, USA on 02/24/2014

This is a nice little cleaner for quick jobs. It does a nice job. The only thing I wish it had a cord and not be cordless. Cordless cleaners don't have the suction that plug-ins do. I like it for quick jobs.

It sucks up more than I thought it would!

By Lizster from Waikoloa Village, HI, USA on 02/04/2014

I decided to try this Bissell because the other cordless vac I had broke. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this vac is STURDILY made - it was easy to assemble, feels solid and ergonomically good to push it around. It also does not get stuck when transitioning from tile to carpet. Best of all, I was so shocked to find how much PET HAIR and DUST (we have a short haired dwarf rabbit) it sucked up -- MORE than the other vacuum I had used for years before! I didn't realize how much stuff we probably had lingering in our carpets! I also love the 2-way folding handle feature. Thank you Bissell! I'm glad I chose you!

This product needs improvement

By Ima from Woodinvile on 01/31/2014

There is no sucking power in this vacuum at all. Dust, dog hair get stuck in the brush and are not moved to the dirt container. I have to clean it inside out every time. I am extremely disappointed. I love the bissell brand and had great success with most of them. but this one is a huge desappointement.

Perfect for cat hair

By StripeySkunk from Bradenton, FL on 01/31/2014

I bought this to use on my laminate floors to try and remove the cat hair. I have a short haired cat so shouldn't be too bad -- BUT, the first time I used it I got a huge wad of cat hair. It picks up hairs and small things very well. I also love the easy to dump cup, and it is lightweight so it doesn't hurt my back.

Save your money

By Shey from New York on 01/26/2014

We had this for our daughter's dorm room and little over a year and just outside the warranty, it died. It's not the charger so it means it's the batteries that can't be replaced. I could understand if it was used daily,but it was only used once every 2 weeks for a quick clean. Very disappointed and won't be purchasing this again.

This product is versatile and performs great

By M&D50 from Bonita Springs, Fl on 01/25/2014

We went in to buy a rechargeable hand-held vacuum for small jobs around the house. We purchased the Lift-Off instead since it could be used as a push vacuum or hand-held. So far the suction is good and we love that we can quickly use on our tile kitchen floor for small jobs and do not have to bend over. I also use the push feature on an indoor/outdoor rug on our covered lanai. It works great. We are very pleased with this purchase.

great at first but stopped sucking

By Manda from Erie, PA on 01/15/2014

This vacuum was great at first! I was using it every day to do a quick sweep of my floors to keep my house clean. I would have to empty it about 2-3 times per use, but I didn't mind at all. Lately, the bin has not been filling up at all! I clean it every time I use it and I checked for a clog and cleaned out any dust and dirt from the bottom. It still isn't getting the dirt and hair from the floor into the bin. I am very disappointed. I loved this, but it stopped working after only a few weeks!

Design and Durability Issues

By kozak65 from Greenville, SC, USA on 01/05/2014

The vacuum has plenty of power and does a great job picking up pet hair from the carpets and hardwoods. One feature I liked was the folding handle, which collapsed for easy reach under chairs and tables without having to stoop. However, the hinge mechanism is not durable, and now it doesn't remain in the straight position under normal use. It keeps folding under its own weight. I'm told that the newer model has been redesigned to fix this problem, but what about those of us who are left with the clearly poorly designed ones? The cost of the replacement part is almost as much as a new one. In my opinion, not worth it.

Hate It Don't buy it.

By Sherrytoo from Bradenton, FL on 12/22/2013

Previously had Electrolux much like this one & liked it a lot, when I finally wore it out I purchased this model. Absolutely hate it. I Have tile floors and it either doesn't pick up the crumbs, etc. or it picks them up and then spits them back out. Spent 3 times as much time to vacuum as before and still won't pick up. As soon as you turn it off it spits back out as many crums, debris, etc. as it originally picked up. It is flimsy and feels like it is going to break or collapse when pushing it. Tried it for over a week, but I am returning it before I get stuck with a piece of junk!!!! Seriously, it is worthless for vacuming up the slighest amount of debris.

It's a good vac!

By Chadydaddy from Salado, Tx on 12/20/2013

It's convenient the way it's handle folds up for storage! And easily becomes a hand vac! Wish it had a power brush attachment when it becomes a hand vac! Anyway it's light weight and very handy! It's not the largest capacity vac but its easy to empty the bin! So I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars!

Can't go wrong!

By SnKZabel from Huntington, WV on 12/14/2013

I ordered this about a week ago, and just got it in the mail. I charged it for 24 hours as instructed, and decided to try it today to clean up around a litter box. I didn't know what to expect while the reviews were good overall, it was a hit and miss with expectations for quite a few customers. I had the "as seen on tv" sweeper prior to this, and found it to be lacking. It just wouldn't pick things up. I had been thinking about getting a stick vacuum when all of a sudden the other quit working all together. I then decided I wanted to actually get a stick vacuum. A cordless one, but heavy enough to clean up the smaller jobs. Was I pleasantly surprised. It picked up litter and any small debris on the floor. Perfect for in between jobs of your bigger vacuum. This is my second Bissel product in my house, and I've never had a problem with them. My next product I'm sure will be an upright carpet cleaner.

Light weight & gets the edges

By Lucy Lucifer from Portland, OR, USA on 12/08/2013

As a senior citizen it is perfect for keeping kitty litter sprinkles in bathroom cleaned up. Also makes swift work on my hardwood and kitchen floors. Easy to use daily, instead of getting out my heavy vacuum which I now use only for carpets. I've never had a vacuum that got the edges and corners so clean. And the cordless feature is awesome.

Perfect for every day use

By Shannon28 from Minnesota on 12/05/2013

I love this vacuum! I bought this vacuum after I adopted my Norwegian forest cat (he's a ball of furr) and his hair stuck to everything. Now cleaning my hard wood floors, tile and area rugs are a breeze. Its so light weight, glides from surface to surface and no hassel with cords. Its not loud like other vacuums and I've even managed to pass it over my cat once or twice when I'm getting his favorite spot ( back of the love seat). When Im done I dump it and give the filter a shake and collapse it to put it away. Thank you Bissell for such an affordable great product!

Lousy Suction

By Shoppingmom3 from California on 12/03/2013

We just adopted a dog and I used my old small vacuum that I love for my daily cleaning. With it plugging up all the time, I found it wasn't meant to pick up dog hair so I went looking for a vacuum that was. I purchased this vacuum and found it to be cheaply made with very little suction. I do like that you can turn the brush on and off but that's about it. The dirt collector is very small, the brush squeaks and I feel it's not doing the job. I'm returning this to the store.

By sp- from Upstate NY on 11/24/2013

Received 4 weeks ago. Love it. does a good job on my low loft carpet and wood and tile floors. Picks up dust, lint, hair and small objects like wood fragments from my wood stove. Also plus can take it on my boat since can charge when at dock and use it later. folds up compactly....very big plus. Thus far give a very high rating. Oh yes the noise is the best of any cordless vacum I have ever owned. sp

Works well/needs better charge holding ability

By JV from VA on 11/19/2013

Pro: Lightweight, good suction, cleans well. Con: For a new vac it forces you to rush to try to finish job before you run out of charge. Need longer battery life or longer lasting charge. Works well when it works, but it just needs to hold its charge longer.

Love my little Bissell!

By Scooter 1 from Vancouver, WA, USA on 11/16/2013

Have two white haired dogs and dark hardwood floors, get my problem? Have two big vacuums, love them, however, when I see pet hair on the floor I go for my Bissell. Does a great job cleaning up the pet hair and leaf parts from our Maple trees we bring in, yes, it's that time of year again... Quick, lightweight, cleans up the entry rugs as well as the floors and so easy to clean after use. Am getting another one for our motorhome, it too will be a Bissell. I'm a "Bissell believer." Thanks for a great product!

Great vacuum

By PetLover from Merrillville, IN on 11/04/2013

This is a perfect vacuum for a quick clean in and around litter boxes, dog beds, dog cages, bird cages and under furniture where pet hair gathers. If I were the engineer, the only thing I would change is give the option for a bagged model. I dislike touching any of that mess!

Lift-Off 53Y8

By Nana from Georgia, USA on 10/30/2013

This is the most wonderful vac tool ever!!! It's lightweight, quiet and has great suction. It's cordless and holds a charge for hours and hours. The swivel head has just the right amount of swivel without being floppy. The folding handle is great for getting under furniture and for storing it away when not in use. The lift off hand vac is easy to take off and on. Even the dust cup is easy to empty. In my opinion, there is not one negative thing about this. It's a well thought out design and seems to be sturdy. Oh, did I mention how much I love this vac?

Bissell Lift-off

By Gina from Muscle Shoals, Alabama on 10/24/2013

This is my second Bissell Lift-Off and my third Bissell product. Nothing beats the power of the Lift-off. It is perfect for rugs and floors. I had another famous name brand and it did not last at all. The Bissell Lift-off before this one lasted for three years and the only reason I replaced it was I dropped the canister and broke it. You can always depend on Bissell!!!!

Lightweight & easy to use

By Bobbi from Lancaster, PA, USA on 09/20/2013

This stick vacuum was perfect for what I needed. I have hardwood floors in my main living areas & I have a dog and a cat. I needed a vacuum to pick up stray cat litter, dog & cat hair. This is a great help to me. Keeps you from having to use a broom & dustpan all the time. It's lightweight & easy to maneuver. I did see previous reviews about the battery life. This vacuum is not to be a primary vacuum. The battery for me lasts long enough (35 minutes) to get my job done. Just put on charger for the night & it's ready to use the next day. Perfect for my daily routine keeping my floors clean.

I was expecting something better...

By love86 from Undisclosed on 08/20/2013

Bought this vacuum to clean my floors from dog hair. Suction is not that great, what is really frustrating is the fact that when I vacuum dog hair collects at the opening of the trash container and piles up against the filter, requiring that I take it apart every few min to move the hair from the opening. The space between the flap and the filter is so small that any dog hair that I vacuum gets trapped in that small opening. Very upsetting.

By Monk65 from Nisswa, MN, USA on 07/28/2013

We live in a household with 2 cats, and one dog. All are "shedders", so fur/hair are always an issue. We've owned several rechargeable, cordless vacuums in recent years, but none compare to the Bissell (Pet 53Y81). And it's so light weight and maneuverable! We truly believe the reviews we read before buying it.

Did more than expected!

By Kathy B from St. Louis, MO, USA on 07/03/2013

After some minor home repair that resulted in a major mess of sawdust and small pieces of acoustical tile covering two rooms of carpeting I got out my "old vacuum", admittedly not a bissell, do a quick cleanup before last minute guests were to arrive. Of course, at that exact time the "old vacuum" decided to die! How in the world would I get this mess cleaned? As a last resort I thought I'd give my bissell stick a try. I was amazed how well it picked up everything, and I still had charge left when I finished the job. The "old vacuum" has been given an unceremonial burial and I will be using my bissell for ALL vacuuming needs from here on out! Thank you for a superior product.

Super plus dust/pet hair eater.

By Grand-ma Barb from PA on 07/03/2013

I was visiting my daughter in Illinois when my Grand-daughter started to vacuum the floors. I was amazed at how it scooted around without a cord. I asked her if I could try it and she said, Well of course Grand-ma. Well, that is all I needed to do. When I got home to Pennsylvania I just had to get one for myself, I have 2 dogs and 2 cats that shed and this product is just wonderful for those in between vacuuming jobs. I highly recommend this product..Keep on sweepin.

Perfect for my needs!

By Sunny from Port Charlotte, FL, USA on 06/30/2013

I purchased the Lift-off about a month ago and have been really happy with it. Living in Florida, we have both tile floors and low pile area rugs. It is light and maneuvers around corners easily. I can zip around the house quickly and effortlessly switching from floors to rug ("brush") settings. It has a well designed feature that allows me to get under tables easily. I love being able to see all the dust and cat hairs the vacuum has picked up and cleaning the filter is easy. Also, the hand-held unit detaches easily and is helpful for window sills and corners. Vacuuming without a cord is a definite plus, however, the charge only lasts about 20 minutes.

Good product for the money

By Mike from New Port Richey, FL, USA on 06/20/2013

The Lift Off Floors Sweeper does exactly that. It works well on bare floors and tile floors and by using the brush attachment. The vac that detaches is good for hard to reach corners. The dust catcher has to be emptied after 2 or 3 uses if you have lots of pets. And the filter has to be cleaned often or changed to a new one. The filters are sold separately. Overall this sweeper does a good job; keep it recharged always and start with a clean dust catcher basket and it will do a good job!

I love the Cordless Bissell

By Genie in the bottle from Centerville, OH, USA on 06/18/2013

I've had 3 open wound on front shins & it takes careful movement after the healing. I always lose balance while dragging vacuum cleaner & bending to insert 3/pronged cord connector is hazardous, too. I can't stop raving about this product, but I bought the Bissell Easy Sweep first & it's way too skitterish. No big review on that one.

Very reliable machine

By Gramgem from West Mifflin, PA on 06/17/2013

I was very worried if this is the kind of machine I could use because I am almost 81 years old (Sept) and do not have much strength in my hands but I must say I love this machine. It is easy to use and understand the workings, filter easy to clean and change (as I bought extra filters and when I wash one I don't have to wait till it dries as I put in a new one and put the wet one on the side till it dries.) Easy to use the hand part. Thanks again.

Loving it!

By Msterrys from Ft. Lauderdale, Fl USA on 06/11/2013

Vacuum is great for cat (and people) hair; easy to clean out the hand-held; but ... to clean the brush roll, I could undo 2 of the 3 phillips head screws, the third won't budge so this feature is lost to me.

Used once and very happy so far.

By 2cats from Oshawa, ON, Canada on 06/06/2013

We just bought this cordless and have used it once. We have 2 cats and it is shedding time. I vacuumed the carpeting on the stairs and the carpet in the dining room and voila, no white or black hair to be seen. I love the fact that it is so light and easy to store. I anticipate that this good result will continue for a long time.

6 month revirw

By Jeff from Arlington, TX, USA on 06/03/2013

I received this product about 7 month's ago (11/2012) and I couldn't be happier. My wife asked why I would buy this vacuum when our full size vacuum was working fine (also a Bissell). Well, now she uses this battery powered vacuum more than I do. It's great for quick clean ups around the house. So glad I bought this vac. and guess what? So is my wife. Also check out my review on the Garage Pro Vac. (18P01) It's another must have.

Perfect for quick clean-ups

By Dave from Minneapolis, MN on 05/28/2013

This is the ideal machine for fast and easy cleanup. It is very maneuverable and easy to use on both hard floors and low-pile carpeting, and the detachable hand vac is great for small spaces. Don't expect to vacuum an entire house on a single charge, and don't expect suction as powerful as a full-sized vacuum -- that's not what this thing is for. But it has all the power I need to take care of day-to-day spot cleaning. You can't beat the value for the price.

The best ever!

By Bird lady from Felton pa on 05/12/2013

I wish I had found this vacuum years ago. We have a Moluccan cockatoo and a blue/ gold macaw. Lots of feathers, dust from the cockatoo and food pellets. This little machine gobbles them up without a problem. It is also very quiet so the birds don't get upset. I love the feature of being able to slide it under their cages without difficulty. All on all, it is the greatest little machine. Oh, and it is light too! Don't hesitate in buying one! - One VERY satisfied customer!

battery?

By PH from Toronto, ON, Canada on 05/10/2013

I just purchased this product and have not used it yet as I must charge it for 24 hrs first. I am uncertain about how long the charge lasts? Must the battery totally drain before recharging? How long to recharge? How do I know when it is totally charged? Can it be used partially charged?

Barely works

By Wisco from Wisconsin on 05/02/2013

I bought this vacuum because we have two dogs and hardwood floors. My Shark vacuum was getting old and needed to replace it. This vacuum has hardly any suction! It picks up dog hair but that is about it. When I vacuum up dirt with it and then turn it off, all the dirt falls back into the floor. I am so disappointed that bissell even sells such a product. I want to return it but can't find my receipt so I'm stuck with a product I will never use. One good thing though is that the battery lasts a long time.

Everything I had hoped for and more!

By sdavis27 from Athens, GA, USA on 04/23/2013

Super light-weight and quite, yet powerful enough for what I needed (daily light cleaning of mostly dog hair). It moves very easily and naturally, reaching anywhere needed without much effort. Folds up very compact. I love that it is cordless! I haven't tested the battery life yet, but I don't really plan on using it for long, so I don't foresee that being an issue. I also love that it has a hand held portion which is going to be great for the stairs and couch!

super handy & works well

By Honda71 from Michigan, USA on 04/06/2013

With a Border Collie in our home, this vac gets a lot of use. Run time of about 15 minutes is enough for a quick cleaning. Great on stairs and on hard floors, too. We have two of these VAC's. Keep a few spare filters on hand as it works awesome with clean filters. I bought one as a gift for a friend for use in their motorhome...great for that, too!

Great Cordless Sweeper

By ladylingren from Pittsburgh, PA, USA on 04/06/2013

Just got my new Bissell - it is great because the hand vacuum lifts off easily for stairs, cushions, etc. Have not used it long enough to know how long the charge lasts, but I was so pleased with mine, I gave each of our kids one for their pet hair issues.

Great unit

By Tom M. from Frankfort, IN 46041, USA on 04/04/2013

This is a great machine. use it to sweep rugs coming into house where dogs gracks in. the brush & vacuum works great. Then you can take out hand unit to use in other areas best part is the little extra nozzle hat's built into it, so you never loose the smaller nozzle just pull it out. Run time is about 45 min, but if you let it rest & only use for short bursts will lasts for 2 weeks before needing charged.

EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR!

By R2325 from Undisclosed on 03/28/2013

I really needed a cordless vacuum to keep up with the hair my 2 dogs leave behind, and I was afraid I was never going to find one. I needed one that would pick up dirt and dog hair on area rugs and hardwood floor and reach underneath my furniture. This little vacuum does all of that and then some. The only drawback I can think of is that every once in a while it would be nice if it could run longer than 12 minutes...otherwise, it's perfect!

I love this product

By CAORiley from Dallas, TX on 03/19/2013

I love this product. I have mainly hard flooring and a long haired kitty. It works wonders. The only down side I have with the product itself is that the battery life could be a little longer or make it where it can run off of a cord as well as cordless. You do have to keep the filter really clean but that isn't a problem for me as I clean it every time I use it. I love the swivel and the button that drops the handle to get under neath things. I like the lightness of it also. I have a regular Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Vac as well and it works great on carpet but not hard flooring and it is very heavy.

Wonderfully Versatile

By Neatfreak from Carlsbad, CA, USA on 02/16/2013

I bought this convenient powerful little unit because the large HEPA filter self propelled vac is getting tough for me to use after back and knee surgery. This little wonder is so dexterous and easy handling that even the hardest spots can be reached without bending - which at present I cannot do. Powerful, easy to handle and empty, I LOVE this machine for both home and RV - which is why I have two of them!

Great with pet bird feathers!

By Koby34210 from Gulf Coast of Florida on 02/09/2013

People who live with parrots know that it's really difficult to find a vacuum cleaner that can lift up all the feathers, dust, and food crumbs that parrots produce. I used to have another (older) model Bissell with the "V" front, which I used. But, this one is even better and more proficient. I can go from tile to area rugs, and back and forth. No matter the surface, I can rely on it to leave my floors clear.

Great for in between deep cleaning

By oversixty from Ohio, USA on 01/10/2013

Love the way this sweeper glides around everything. Fits into small areas, picks up nice and is lightweight. We have a dog so we do have to turn it over every time we use it to pull the dog hair out of the roller but we have the same problem with our very expensive large sweeper. We have only had it for a couple weeks and hope it continues to clean as well as it does now. Would highly suggest picking this up for small clean ups.

My first stik-vac

By Mrs. NAM from Lapeer, MI on 01/08/2013

I have had my Bissell Lift-Off Floors& More for a little over a month now and overall I am pleased with it. It is light weight which makes it easy to maneuver and I like the swivel handle so that I can get the vac under furniture and in small spots. It is relatively quiet and easy to use. I also like the fact that you have the use of the detachable hand-vac. On the down side, I wish the motor stayed charged up longer than it does. Also, I don't like the fact that you can't leave the vac free-standing - it doesn't lock in place so you have to make sure it is leaning against something or it will fall. The ultimate test will be to see how long this vac holds up to normal household use.

Great for pet hair

By Jack Russell Terrier owner from Denver, CO, USA on 12/29/2012

easy to use and manuver in tight spaces.

By jeeper33 from peoria arizona on 12/25/2012

This is our first vacum of this type. A relative had one and after watching her use it we bought one. It's very versitile and has some excellent features. I have a bad back and this almost eliminates me getting down to clean the kitchen floor. It goes under the table and in between chairs with ease. I would recommend this one with out reservation.

I love this little wonder!!

By Heartliner from Kettering, OH on 12/20/2012

Thanks Bissell! Never thought I could do such a thorough cleaning in so little time with so little work on my part!! It's amazingly easy and fast on our hardwood, tile and large area throw rugs. The amount of dog hair picked up is amazing--we never thought our little pomeranian shedded, but it picks up tons of very fine hairs we didn't even know were on the floor. I have really liked my Bissell upright vacuum, but even it is much harder to maneuver and run. Now, after I'm done, I'm ready to go on with other things; no need to sit down and rest for a few minutes like I did with a bigger corded upright.

Great vacuum!

By Chessie'sMom from St Louis, MO, USA on 12/16/2012

This is the best vacuum for picking up pet hair that I've ever had. Also, it's light and lies flat in order to get under furniture. I recommend it to every one, even if you don't have a long haired black cat that sheds constantly. The Lift-Off Floors and More is every thing that Bissell claims, and more.

By Richard Parker (Bengal Tiger) from Everett, WA, USA on 12/09/2012

Very satisfied customer. Lite weight, ease of maneuvering and storing and picks up animal hair on all surfaces. Like any vacuum, the key to effectiveness (i.e.. sucking power) is a clean head and dirt container/filter. Follow the instructions and you can't go wrong!

Great Quality

By fulltime_mom from Chesapeake, VA, USA on 12/02/2012

After using the vacuum for just a week, I found that it does a great job with the pet hair ( and my daughter's long hair too) I like the collapsing feature that allows me to get under the bed, and tables with out having to stoop down. The section manages to pick up small pieces of paper with out a problem. I fully charged the vacuum and managed to vacuum almost my whole apartment before it started to slow down. It's a light weight, highly functional alternative to a full sized vacuum.

By Happy homemaker from Florence, AL, USA on 11/28/2012

I really like my floor cleaner. Much easier than a broom and dustpan and I don't have to bend over to use it. Having long hair, I will have to clean the brushes on a regular basis to make sure I don't bind up the rotating bar, but this is the case with ANY vacuum.

By okpete from Oklahoma, USA on 11/24/2012

Most of the floors in our home are hardwood. My Lift-Off Floors & More does an excellent job keeping the floors clean. It is markedly better picking up crumbs, dust "and more" than our previous electric broom. I would recommend this vacuum to anyone looking for an electric broom for cleaning hard-surface floors.

Bissell Lift-Off

By loulou3 from Caldwell, ID, USA on 11/04/2012

I have had this vacumn for a couple of weeks, it is quiet, light, easy to use, easy to maneurver and swivels around furniture, I am a little disappointed as it doesn't have much power to pick up off the carpet and the battery doesn't hold power for long. Seems I am always having to charge it. I used to have a cordless stick vacumn and it seems to work better than the Bissell.

Great for occasional use...

By Sara G from Undisclosed on 11/01/2012

I received this as a Christmas gift following a back injury that made it impossible for me to lug around my heavy upright. It is incredibly light weight, easy to maneuver and allowed me to vacuum without bending. I have 2 children, and it is great for spot cleaning after them, and small enough for my 11 year-old to comfortably use. I find that it is necessary to clean the filter after each use, rather than gently banging it to remove dust. I can typically clean one room before the battery needs to be recharged, which is frustrating. My handle also broke, preventing it from staying locked into position. Today, after having dealt with this frustration for a couple of months (which only worsened with use) I called Bissell and was told that a replacement part will be sent to me. Excellent customer service! I recommend this product for occasional/light use. I will be shopping for a canister vacuum for regular use, and use this as the glorified dust-buster that it is.

A Wonderful Compact Vacuum Cleaner At Last!!

By Norma Jean 75 from Mobile, AL, USA on 10/25/2012

I have a small apartment and needed somethng smaller than a fullsize vacuum, which I had. The Lift-Off Floors is perfect. Easy to use, especially around chair legs, under furniture, good suction, no bags to throw out. I like the hand-held one coming as part of the cleaner, which I can use behind items and in small areas like tight corners. I gave my old, large vacuum to a friend. Your Lift-Off Floors & More is also easy to store. In short......I simply love it! Norma Jean

Planning to buy a new cordless vac.

By AlK25 from Branford, CT on 10/20/2012

I have an old Bissell "Boss" cordless vac which still works fairly well, but some of the little wheels have broken off and the brush gets stuck quite often,. I've taken it apart and cleaned it several times. Too bad you don't make the Boss anymore. Does the new one come with a charger that hangs on the wall so I can hang the vac on it to keep it out of the way?

Does the job I bought it to do

By AL from Alamogordo, NM 88310, USA on 10/04/2012

This is my third cordless vacuum cleaner. I needed 1. light weight. 2. Had to be good on both floors and carpet 3. Able to pick up lots of pet hair. It met those requirements, but it does get cloged very easy. The opening and valve in the dirt bin is to small. I have to use a long handled screw driver to pull the pet hair out. Other than that I recommend it as a handy unit to have around for quick clean ups.

Big Help for Little Pickups

By Dog Lover from Western Massachusetts on 10/04/2012

This was just what I needed for in between regular big vacuuming. My old hand vac had died and when I went shopping, the thought of not having to lean over to reach and pick up little stuff the dog brought in convinced me that this was what I needed,---and it is! It's a big help and easy on my bad back.

SOOOO PLEASED

By Laurylee from Deerfield Beach, FL, USA on 09/17/2012

I was skeptical of the product because of it being battery powered and so light weight. How could it possibly be as good as the old uprights? I was having trouble with my shoulder and found it hard to push my old upright around. I decided to buy it anyway thinking I could always return it if I didn't like it. Well I tried it and I love it..it is lightweight and is so handy for cleaning hardwood floors and throw rugs that I have throught my house. The fact that it also becomes a hand held vacuum just makes it a perfect product...TRY IT YOU'LL LIKE IT TOO.

Love Bissell

By 3 little dogs!!! from Draper, UT, USA on 08/31/2012

I purchased my Lift off about 6 months ago and have used it almost every day since purchase. It works great in my 1500sqft home. It moves from floors to carpet and the handle makes it so I can get underneath things with ease. I don't normally write about products but I love my Lift off!!!! OH I have 3 little dogs so it is getting a lot of use.

Great little cordless vac!

By ldianes4321 from Clermont, FL, USA on 08/27/2012

More than 3/4 of my home is tiled, and I have a large furry dog, so after reading the ratings, thought this would be just what I needed. I wasn't disappointed - I love this vac! This is very lightweight & extremely maneuverable, and holds a charge long enough to do quick cleanup, or I can run through almost the entire house before running down. Also great for thoroughly getting crumbs/fur off throw rugs without sucking up the rug! Being able to quick snap off the hand-vac is really a plus. Super easy to dump out the filter.

Works awesome...but....

By socalguy from San Diego, CA, USA on 08/22/2012

Bought this after reading the reviews. We just moved into a new home with very nice hardwood floors and with our dog shedding as much as he does, figured we needed it. I charged it for 24 hours and just got around to using it and it worked great but after about 10-15 minutes it started dying out like the battery needed charging. I got the Bissell site and that's when I noticed it only runs for 12.5 minutes. HUH??? That makes it tough to use on as much floor as we have. Question for Bissell - Can the vacuum be run while plugged in? I'd be willing to use an extension cord if needed.

sold on BISSELL

By chinyla from Los Angeles, CA, USA on 07/30/2012

My last electric broom was a Bissell -- bought in 1984! This is light-weight enough for a senior to use, and I expect it to last until I'm old enough to need a cleaning girl -- no make that a cleaning BOY! It works equally well on hardwood, tile, slate, my one little carpet and the hand-held feature is great for upholstery and curtains.

By Daisy90 from Northern NJ on 07/24/2012

gave it a chance but........

By cathy from Alberta, Canada on 07/23/2012

i bought this and then noticed it only runs for a bout 12 mins. i was skeptical but i thought i would try it any ways. charged it for the 24 hours, then tried it. worked great. handled all that i put it through (dog hair that is.). lasted about 15 mins but i got alot done. i used it till it needed charging. i cleaned it top to bottom then charged it for the 16 hours required. when i went to use it , (and i was excited to use it), it didnt seem to b pickin up any thing. so i am totally bummed about it. i was loving everything about it. but now i am taking it back. it just doesnt do what i need it to do, and thats picking up dog hair and other messes..

Be (dog) gone-ess !!

By gerheif from East Grand Rapids, MI on 07/22/2012

Yay !! Who needs a magic spell for pet hair, when all you have to do is roll this back and forth over the offending surface a few times ?!? I bid on this at a late spring charity event after recognizing it as the model recommended by my physical therapist, for a better option to address chronic dog hair removal versus the multiple and daily deep waist bends required to use my little cordless hand-held AND thus far, I couldnt be happier !!! As the mother of three, plus a shedding dog and the dirt, debris, and hair included in that package deal I have PLENTY (code for decades) of experience with cordless hand-helds and I give this Lift-off top marks. If you want to do a deep clean vacuum for your entire house, look elsewhere (like a full size plug-in vacuum cleaner), if you want a quick, easy, and painless (literally) option " check out this stick cleaner. Pros " light, smooth, easily maneuvered, long lasting performance (remember the decades of experience ?? 12.5 minutes at full power IS a long time), easy to empty and re-assemble, and it really, really, picks up dog hair. Cons " it really, really picks up dog hair (see pros) so you will probably need to empty it after each use, but it is easy to re-assemble (see pros, and decades of experience). Finally, I see that the dogs female humans shed as well and those long human hairs can affect the spinning brush rotation, but I have easily (and carefully) clipped them away with kid/school scissors I keep in the junk drawer and then just..vacuum them up. Buy it and enjoy your hairy dog and messy kids with a little more comfort !!

Picks Up Amazing Amounts of Pet Hair

By marvistadirk from West Los Angeles, CA on 07/19/2012

Wow, this little vacuum sucks up more pet hair than I thought was there. Just got the machine so battery life isn't yet clear but its so so convenient. Does a great job on scattered cat litter as well. So far we love it.

Perfect for me!

By meg411235 from Myrtle Beach, SC, USA on 07/05/2012

This cordless is PERFECT for me, my small apartment (mix of hard wood and carpet) and my 80 pound lab who sheds all day everyday. No messing around with cords, it is very light weight and can stow away and very small space, and is very attractive. The swiveling head makes it easy to use. also i love the hand vac that pops right out at the touch of a button it makes it easy to spot clean furniture, cars and hard to reach spaces. The suction is powerful and long. This vac is better than i expected. FYI:The battery charges best if the dust canister is empty.

Great Little Product

By Bunny from Los Angeles, CA, USA on 07/01/2012

This is a great little machine! I have a similar item in a different brand but this Bissell is far better. It's light weight but REALLY powerful. With 4 kids, 3 cats & a dog we HAVE A LOT of PET Hair and messes! It's Especially useful on the stairs, which is ALWAYS a hassle for me. I am very pleased with it & recommend it highly!

Just right, just right, just right

By Ken from Flintstone, GA on 06/28/2012

My wife is disabled. She was not able to use the larger, older, much more bulky, vacuum cleaner. She can use her mobile chair and clean the tile floor, carpet, and wood floors with ease; using Lift-off Floors and more. We also have a dog and cat, so the pet hair is a constant. The removeable hand vac. is so handly. This picks up the hair effortlessly. It's a great product, best money I have spent on a vacuum in years.

By Doe from Michigan, USA on 06/16/2012

the lift-off does what it claims. I have a long hair cat, and my other sweepers would get clogged up. with this sweeper you can see when it is full. it picks up great on hard wood and carpets. Just love it.

Perfect for quick clean ups

By Mousemom from Cannon Falls MN on 06/13/2012

I love this little stick vac! We have wood and ceramic floors only and several hairy critters. This is perfect for cleaning up quickly, much faster than a broom and dustpan and the hairballs aren't floating everywhere. You do need to dump out the dust cup after each use. And watch the roller for wound up hair and fibers, but it is super easy to clean out. The kids will even use it, because it is fun, not so much like chores.

The best small cordless I have ever owned.

By NancyT from Somers, ny on 05/29/2012

I have a large heavy duty upright that I use for deep cleaning, but living in a small condo, I also like to have a smaller carpet sweeper or electric broom for every day and in between full cleaning jobs. In the past I have owned a couple of electric brooms but they do nothing at all for cleaning the rugs - even the area rugs or front door mats. I started buying another brand of cordless carpet sweeper type devices, and since they have rotating brushes they would do a somewhat better job but did not last long. Over time they would seem to lose power and I would have to replace them every year or so when they stopped taking a charge. It has only been 3 months so I wont know what will happen in a year, but I am already convinced this Bissell is the BEST. Easy to charge and lasts long enough to go over the entire condo. Two days later and there is still enough charge to touch up the hall and kitchen. Very powerful for its size and the rotating brush is super fast so it can even pick up from my thick carpet. The brush head is easy to get to and clean. The swivel head has a tapered shape that makes it easy to get into corners and the light weight is perfect for my aching knees. I use this on my hall rug, area rugs, carpet, tile floor and kitchen. I don't have pets, but maybe that feature is what is am king this device so efficient. LOVE IT!

76 year-old woman loves the Bissell Lift-Off

By alice kay from Vancouver, Washington on 05/20/2012

Fell and broke a hand and foot and found the vacuum that I owned much too heavy for me now. Bought the Lift-Off and finished charging it today and when I tried it I was so happy. Oh, it won't deep clean the carpets, but I don't expect that, either. Will hire someone to do rug cleaning. If I use the Lift-off each day, I know I can stay on top of the surface dirt and be okay with that. Even my dogs enjoy chasing the little vacuum because it is not noisy.

COULDN'T BE HAPPIER WITH MY VACUUM CLEANER

By Ladydog from College Station, TX USA on 05/19/2012

I LOVE this vacuum cleaner and it is perfect for what I wanted it to do. I have a large tile kitchen, laudry room and dining room area that I couldn't keep clean between cleaning once a week. It is perfect to pick it up and no cord and whisk around the floor. I have never run out of time and couldn't be happier. Then I put it back and it is ready for the next day. If you are looking for a quick way to clean up (quiet and fast) this is the one for you. The filter is easy to clean and I don't have to clean it each time I use it.

Excellent for small apartment

By Mav from Hillsboro, OR, USA on 05/18/2012

This is a lightweight and versatile vacuum, perfect for cleaning a 1 bedroom apartment. Picks up most of the dirt and dust from the carpet and tiled floor. Suction is adequate though it will not pick up hair effectively due to the brush roll as it will mostly get stuck there. Not a problem to remove it manually, though. Highly recommend this for low to medium vacuuming job.

Bissell Lift Off Floor & More

By Cleaning Lady from baltimore, maryland on 05/17/2012

It's my first electric sweeper and I was expecting more. And I can't compare it to anything else on the market that's similar. But I'm not impressed. Doesn't hold a charge for long. It is lightweight and it is better than pulling out the regular vacuum cleaner, but the vacuum cleaner is more efficient. I'll stick with the vacuum cleaner. For people who aren't as particular as me, this sweeper would be fine for light messes.

I especially recommend this product for senior citizens

By Margaret134 from Charleston, SC on 05/16/2012

I'm a "senior" and this little vac could not be easier to use. It is light weight, easy to maneuver and has settings for bare floor and carpet. Best of all, there is no cord or hose to trip over!! I am very pleased with the performance, and hope Bissell will continue to consider the special needs of seniors in future designs. My only complaint is the 12 minute battery charge. If Bissell can find a way to produce a unit "just like this" but with longer battery life and the same features, I would purchase it in a heart beat.

Do you want this?

By cinn from missouri on 05/15/2012

Reasons you might: only have very small space to clean, ie, under messy toddler's chair to pick up cereal. only need to use for under 15 minutes. only have very small messes to clean up. have need of machine that is hand vac/stick vac. have need of machine to clean [small] oriental rugs. don't have the strength to use another sweeper or hand vac Reasons you don't: doesn't work for more than about 15 minutes in brush mode fully charged before needing to be recharged. design flaws - very small dust catcher needs emptied every few minutes; flap in dust catcher retards cleaning of anything other than dust - not spider webs or anything with any bulk - small plant leaves, clumps of dirt. not for use if you really want to clean more than light dust or cereal. in vac mode w/o brush doesn't clean well. as hand vac doesn't have enough dust catcher to use for more than short time Recommendation: if you need a sweeper, buy a different one. if you only need a hand-held buy a different one. If I had been able to try this machine in the store, on real dirt, I wouldn't have bought it. The ONLY things I really like about it is the adjustable handle that allows to vac under chairs, etc. and swivel brush head.

I am so glad I purchased this vacuum!

By Sandra P from Florida on 05/08/2012

We have 2 dogs and their white fur shows up quite well on our hardwood floors. I only vacuumed twice a week because of the time it took with the large vacuum's hose attachment, plugging/unplugging & cord that got in the way. My husband went to the store to purchase a robot for me, but when he saw the prices, he opted to try this one out first. The BIG pluses are the ease of use with it being lightweight, cordless, small & swivels well, not to mention the inexpensive price. I plug in the narrow cord and have run it into the closet to charge. I can quickly vacuum every day for a few minutes and the floors look great! I keep the rotating brush off, so there is less friction on the wood, but turn it on when I'm vacuuming the tiled floors & the low pile throw rugs. There are some minuses to the product. The battery does not last a long time, so vacuum accordingly (or buy more than one#. The suction is OK - you have to actually run the vacuum over the spot because it will not pick up anything outside of the unit. I do not like the way I have to empty the dirt bin because it is cumbersome and I have to use a brush to clean the filter. I tried it once on my bedroom carpet and it wasn't worth the effort #very thick, plush carpeting), although I may use it for under the bed. I would definitely recommend this vacuum to people with hard surface flooring!

Great product

By IRB33785 from Indian Rocks Beach, FL on 04/10/2012

We bought this for little touchups so we didn't have to bring out the big vacuum. We only have two rooms with carpet and the rest are tile so this is perfect for going from one to the other. We like that it is lightweight and very simple to use. The little handheld is convenient to use. We don't recharge after each use or empty the cup unless we have used it throughout our condo.

Starts out good, then breaks...

By JLChi from Chicago, IL, USA on 04/05/2012

I was very happy with how the vacuum was working and the convenience of being battery operated, but then the handle began folding on its own, making it difficult to vacuum anywhere, and the handle then began to come out of the vacuum, exposing wires. Contacting customer service has also unproductive as they tried telling me it was my fault.

The Perfect Vacuum

This amazing machine has been a dream! After purchasing mine, Ive given two (2) more as gifts. Its lightweight, very easy to handle, folds away to discreetly store, and most important, it does a tremendous job! I have three dogs and a cat with tile floors in my home and have had numerous friends comment about the ABSENCE of dust bunnies that are typically created by animal hair. You will LOVE this vacuum!

So far, so good

By Rich from Asheboro, NC on 03/30/2012

Just had this product for a week. It seems to work pretty good. I just saw on this website that the battery is good for 12.5 minutes per charge. I didn't see that mentioned on the box, but that should be enough time for quick pick-ups (I hope). I see that other people have problems with the handle after a while. The display model at the store had a broken handle too. I hope this will not be a problem for me. It would be nice if it was manufactured in the US! I see no mention in the booklet if it should remain plugged in all the time, or unplugged after charging.

Great features - battery life too short

By Kim from Los Angeles, CA on 03/28/2012

This product is great if you just need to clean up crumbs in the kitchen but not so satisfactory if you need it to clean up dog-hair around the house. I love the design with the swivel head and the angling plus the hand-held feature - but the battery runs out before I'm half way through my cleaning job. I just read on the website it has a battery life of 12.5 minutes! The box didn't mention that. My old cordless (a different brand) gave me at least a half hour plus had a second battery pack always ready in the charging station. I was surprised to find that you have to plug this one in and it doesn't just slide into a charging stand of some sort which I think is much more convenient. The product specifically advertises good for pet hair, but I find that the suction tunnel is rather small and easily gets clogged by the pet hair. One other point for future designs - removing the dust cup is awkward. My hand isn't that small, but can't hold the handle and reach to push the release button at the same time to empty the dust cup.

Disappointing

By Alicia16 from Lehigh Valley, PA on 03/25/2012

Purchased this over the holidays and within weeks the handle broke. Thought I could live with that but then struggled with suction. Dilligently cleaned the filter after each use but soon realized that was a waste of my time, as the suction only deteriorated. Naively gave away my old stick broom to a neighbor before I realized how bad this one was and now I have to drag the vacuum out each time I need to sweep up, instead of being able to use this. My first experience with the Bissell. Not sure there will be another.

Good but hard to clean

By Mickele from Winter Haven, Florida on 03/20/2012

This is our second cordless. The replacement battery for our previous machine cost almost as much as a new vacuum. We bought yours because of the name. The machine cleans nicely, picks up well, is quiet . . .but . . .there is always a but . . . the filter is a pain to clean. Our previous cleaner was also bagless with a cloth filter. The dirt and dog hair stayed mostly in the bottom of the the container. This machine sucks the hair onto the cloth filter and has to be cleaned off by hand. Almost nothing goes into the plastic container. Another reviewer mentioned there is no replacement battery. That's not good. If you do something about the design of the filter, please let me know.

Not as good as I hoped

By lcs29 from Phoenix, AZ, USA on 03/19/2012

Got Lift off as a Xmas gift - handle broke on second use. I'm a Bissell supportor, this one is not worth purchasing. Very disappointed. I have too hold arm to use this, otherwise it keeps snapping in a folding position. After reading other reviews I see this is a very common problem. I don't use it anymore, it was too frustrating, not quick and easy when you have to fight to use it. Bissell may want too take another look at this design. Also the suction is not very strong. If I remove the hand vac from stick, it picks up better, still not as good as my other cordless vacuum I use. Does not pick up crumbs on tile flooring well. Very disappointed with this one, I don't recommend it at all.

Bad Handle

By Angela1415 from St Louis, MO, USA on 03/17/2012

I bought this vacuum in November 2011. I like the lightweight maneuverability of the vacuum. The battery life is good and it does a good job picking up the dust and dog hair from my hardwood and vinyl floors. However, I am very disappointed that after only 4 months of use the handle is broken. It does not stay locked in position. In my opinion the vacuum should have lasted longer than 4 months for the price paid. I definitely would not recommend this product

My second cordless vacumn

By Bill from Binhamton, NY on 03/16/2012

I had a famous name cordless vacumn prior to purchasing the Bissell Lift-Off. I am very plesed so far, but I have had it for less than a month as of this writing. It has good pick-up, is quiet, is easy to push around, and is easy to use. My wife and I both love the way the head swivels around to make it easy to use on both area carpets, and wood floors. It also has very good suction (Very important), and is attractive to look at. The brush roll is key to helping the vacumn pick up pet hair. I may write another review after I have had it for 6 months.

Good cordless vac for quick clean up

By Val from TX on 02/23/2012

I bought this in Jan 2012, and it has great suction and works great going from wood floor to carpet. Not too bad with cleaning the filter. Just use a brush and it works better than trying to shake it clean..which can get dusty. Battery life isnt bad for a cordless vac, works great if you follow the instructions in the manual about how long to charge it and to unplug after fully charged. Not necessary to leave plugged in once its fully charged. The only disappointment would be that Bissell doesnt have a replacement battery when this one dies and cant be recharged. I havent had that problem yet, as this is still new, but wanted to know this upfront. They responded quickly to my question and I also like that you can register your vac online and earn points for replacement products..re: filters, belt, etc.

It just rides so smoothly over the floor & carpeting.

By Lois from East Setauet, Ny, USA on 02/11/2012

I Love it!!!! I had no idea what I was buying. I did not read a review. I was shopping for a cordless vacuum & this one caught my eye. I am very lucky because it just serves my purpose. Always available for a quick clean-up & does a great job on both the hard wood floors & the carpeting. And I love that I can take off the hand-held vacuum in a second...very convenient. My only suggestion is that I wish I could hang it on the wall attached to a battery charger like the previous cordless vacuum you made several years ago!!

Great cordless vac!!

By dorenesthings from Los Gatos, CA, USA on 02/01/2012

I was skeptical that this cordless vac would be very useful, and I was totally wrong!! It has great suction, very flexible movement, lightweight and easy to rotate. It has long battery power, and is amazing in it's effectiveness! It even does a decent job on our low pile carpeting!! The handvac does a good job, especially in crevices, and folds into the chassis effortlessly. Can't say enough about how happy we are with this vac!!

Very good concept

By Bennycat from Berea, Ohio on 02/01/2012

The swivel head with the rotating brushes, the removable hand held vac, and being cordless are very good features. The ease of using it because it is so light makes cleaning easier. My husband even likes using it.

Waste of money!

By BizzyMommy from Granite Falls, NC, USA on 01/31/2012

I bought this sweeper vac as a replacement for a sweeper with no suction thinking it would be an upgrade since it has both a sweeper and a hand vac. However, it didn't even work as good as the cheap manual sweeper. The sweeper mechanism actually pushes dirt out and makes a bigger mess. If I could take it back, I totally would. Will not be purchasing another product like this or from this company for a long time. It was a total waste of money.

Great Performance

By Donna from Manchester, MI on 01/31/2012

I wanted something for dust on my hardwood floors that would be quick, and easy to use. I got it. I also vacuum the ever showing dust on my blue velvet couch. Easy to see when it needs to be emptied and very easy at that. Also works great on low pile rugs as suggested in a previous product rating. I love it!

Good vacuum, bad handle

By cat4life from Winston-Salem, NC, USA on 01/31/2012

I had this product for about 3 months and the handle, which is designed to fold and also angle for ease of reaching under stuff, wouldn't stay locked in one position. I contacted Bissell through the website and they were prompt with a response and offered an exchange of the whole unit, even though it was just the handle that was the problem. I emailed them that this was the case and would only return that if they wished and if I did not hear from them I would return the whole thing. I heard nothing, so I returned the whole unit (with a return shipping label they provided) and a new one was shipped to my door within two weeks. I am sure they have a policy of only exchanging the whole unit but they might want to rethink that as the motor is heavier and if this handle has this problem a lot they would save on cost but hey, I got my new handle and so far it is working fine. I would suggest that you are very careful with it.

Best stick vac we've ever owned!

By jan74 from PA on 01/31/2012

This does a great job on our carpets as well as our bare vinyl floors. We have three indoor cats and one dog, so we run this often. Picks up all the fur from any of the surfaces...great job on stairs, too. We manage to get completely done before the battery needs recharged. We love this purchase...thinking of getting a second one, so we'll have one for each floor of the house.

Lift-off floors &more

By Annie K. from St Cloud, WI, USA on 01/31/2012

I ordered this as a birthday present to myself. It works pretty well however, I wish that it was more powerful. I love the fact that its light, chargeable, and small. Now I don't have to take my regular vac up and down the stairs.

This products has great featurs and works well

By rodrigre from Brooklyn, NY, USA on 01/31/2012

Bought this vaccum cleaner for my aunt, over her objections, because she is unable to lift heavy objects as result of having open heart surgery and falling and hurting her right arm. As soon as she started using it she fell in love with it! She likes that she can lift it with one arm, something she couldn't do with her other vacuum cleaner. She is cleaning a maniac and she loves the way it picks up dirt. Likes that it turns into a hand vac which allows her to clean more than just floors. And loves the flexibility because she doesn't have to bend to clean underneath the bed, sofa, etc. By the way, she has girl who goes to her house to clean once a month and she too fell in love with this vacuum cleaner!

Love this product

By Happy tails from Hudson, FL on 01/31/2012

I no longer have to bend over with a broom and dust pan to pick up the litter that my three cats scratch onto the floor. This product is so easy to use and to empty. In fact, I purchased three and placed one near each litter station.

Perfect for a small apartment

By Honeycleo from Bloomingdale, NJ, USA on 01/31/2012

This little machine is great. It is light and easy to handle, the ability to get under furniture with little bending is a blessing. It gets into corners and tight spaces with no effort and does a great job. My old robot died and I decided to try this instead, I could not believe how much cat hair it got up. I thought my rugs needed to be cleaned but it was just a layer of fur that the robot didn't get. The added conversion to a hand held feature is an unbelievable bonus. I did my whole apartment in five minutes and the carpet looks brand new.

I love this machine!

By Grandma K from Upstate, NY on 01/31/2012

I love this machine. I picked it up on a whim because I was tired of hauling around the cord of my vacuum. I was really impressed with how much cat hair it picked up from a carpet that didn't look full of cat hair. It's light and easy to use anywhere - stairs, carpet, wood floors. After I used it for a couple of days, I ordered 2 more -one for my daughter and one for my son for their homes with pets and kids. It doesn't replace my big vacuum for a thorough carpet cleaning, but it is ideal for in between vacuumings. Plus, in between vacuuming can go a lot longer now that I can keep things nice so quickly and easily with this great product.

product all I needed

By cassidy5 from ohio on 01/31/2012

I have been a Bissell product user for over 30 years, finally found another new version that is what I wanted. I have tile floors, along with some carpet, and a large dog. Being cordless is a plus, along with now a greater re charge - love it, lightweight, very portable.Highly recommend.

This vacuum is light and easy to use.

By Dusty1 from Forest Falls, CA, USA on 01/31/2012

We are always surprised to see how much dust and cat hair got trapped in the filter when the floor didn't look that dirty. Then we go to clean it out, and it's a snap! This machine has enough suction, and is great for cleaning after a messy cat or dog, or dirty shoes coming in from working outside. Also, it is quiet enough not to scare the cats, and it seems to be made well enough to last awhile.

This product is handy

By Countrygirl from Louisville, KY on 01/31/2012

I keep my Lift-Off Floors and More PET in my foyer closet for quick pickups on my hard floors, since we have a dog that sheds a lot. It is powerful and the battery charge lasts more than long enough to do the job for me. I also use it to vacumn beneath my bed since it sits too low to get my regular upright underneath it. I am very pleased with this purchase.

You will love this "baby" Bissell!

By Tootsie from Glenview, IL, USA on 01/31/2012

We just recently had all new wood floors put in our house. Everyone tells you how you will just love having wood floors. What they don't tell you is....they are a lot of upkeep! In no time, I was sorry I got rid of our carpeting. We have 3 birds and two cats. With the wood floors, I was constantly cleaning up seed, feathers, and cat hair! Our Bissell vacuum cleaner we used for the carpeting is just too cumbersome for using on the wood floors. Can't reach under the furniture to clean up the seed and feathers! I went to the store and purchased what I call the "baby Bissell", and I love it! It can go everywhere, reach under the furniture to catch all the seed, feathers and cat hair. Now, I know my floors are CLEAN! Thanks, Bissell, for another great product! You never disappoint!

I am so very pleased with the Lift-Off...Hardwood floors run into carpet and I just keep right on going. I have more time to putter around. Great!

By Ginny from Ohio on 01/31/2012

I am getting older (Ha) and need help and I got it in the lift-off. Hardwood floors and carpet, then under the furniture and around the dog and all of her toys and back to the start all on one charge. The car, the work bench...watch out dirt here I come. I bought a couple of extra filters and just keep washing them out. I am really pleased.

Great cordless vacuum

By Joey99 from Tempe on 01/31/2012

I have had many cordless vacs in the past but they have all been the standard 6 volt units. This baby uses a 12 volt drive and runs quieter to boot. The clear plastic filter housing lets you see and keep track of the amount of trash you are collecting. Cleaning the trash is a snap. One weak spot is the fold-up handle feature. Although a nice feature, it results in a sloppy joint movement when pushing back and forth. A small price to pay for such an otherwise great machine.

Lift off Floors & More Pets

By SusieQ from Arroyo Grande, CA on 01/31/2012

I find this great for daily cleaning of all floors - I only have to get out my big cleaner once a week now. It is so quick and easy, I wish I'd had it years ago.

GREAT VALUE

By GIRAFFE PAL from ATHENS, TN on 01/31/2012

LOVE THIS PRODUCT FOR PICKING UP CAT HAIR, SMALL ROCKS AND DIRT. USE IT MOSTLY ON HARD SURFACES BUT IT DOES PICKUP CAT HAIR FROM CARPET. HAVE USED A SHARK FOR YEARS BUT IT DIDNT VACUMN SO THIS IS GREAT. THE PRICE WAS VERY GOOD TOO. MY ONLY COMPLAINT WOULD BE THE BATTERY DOES NOT LAST AS LONG AS STATED BUT STILL LOVE IT.

Outstanding product!

By dog dad from Hickory, NC, USA on 01/17/2012

I purchased this product to pick up debris after our poodles play in the yard. It works great. The floor is laminate with area rugs. I can clean the 1200square feet easily on one battery charge without having to to worry about plugging into different electrical sockets. I am amazed at how much hair and fibers are in the vacuum when I finish. Lite weight, easy to use, effective, and inexpensive. Outstanding product Bissell!
