this is my 2nd pet lift off

By Susie Q from Fort Worth, TX, USA on 12/04/2014

As stated above this is my 2nd one of these sweepers. I prefer this one because it is 12 amps which seems to have better suction. I too like using the brush on the wood & tile floors because less dog hair gets blown around the room. I am having a big problem trying to get the filter off that sits above the removable canister that you dump. My other one was a twist off with no problem. According to my book this one you pull off & so far I have not been able to get it loose. I have had several high end sweepers in the past & I do hope I will not be disappointed in this one. My other one is still working & I plan to hang onto it.

What a JOKE!

By Pumpkincat from Louisburg, Ks on 10/29/2014

I've had this vacuum for not quite a year now and I HATE it. It was purchased in a hurry as I was having a small birthday party for my sister that night and my other vacuum broke. I live rurally and there's not a lot of shopping options, especially being under the gun. This machine is the most temperamental thing EVER. It's filthy to deal with (all the filters and the nasty canister# and it won't pick up a thing on the bare floors. I bought it since it was all touted as a pet vacuum and I have 2 Pomeranians and 4 cats inside. USELESS, utterly and totally USELESS. It tips very easily and you have to switch the settings constantly (or I do anyway) as I have area rugs on the wood floors. Seriously, do yourself a huge favor and go buy some other brand. You will hate this thing forever and no way will another Bissell product ever come into this house.

Excellent for Mohawk Smartstrand carpet

By Mike03 from Pensacola, FL, USA on 10/21/2014

Brush height settings enable use on Mohawk Smartstrand carpet. Achieved excellent cleaning at height setting 5 of 7 possible. Maneuverability is surprising for 15 inch path.

Lift off and go is the greatest feature!

By Dogs! from Young America, In 46998 on 10/16/2014

Love my new Lift-Off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum! Easy to use, tools are easy to attach! The best part is being able to lift-off and go! Would recommend this to any one who has animals!

Delighted

By Delighted from Las Vegas, NV, USA on 10/03/2014

Over the years I have had many vacuum cleaners including Kirby, by far this is the lightest, easiest vacuum I have ever owned. I always had a problem cleaning the stairs in my home as the cleaners were either too heavy or the hose just wasn't long enough or a real hassle to convert to the hose. This is one click and it's ready to go. I love the small canister as it forces you to clean it to get the maximum cleaning out of the machine. The first time I used it I was so surprised as to how much was left in my carpets from the other vacuum cleaner. I LOVE my new Bissell Lift Off.

Replaced Bissell by MFC

By sethjack from Nashville, TN, USA on 09/28/2014

I had several problems with my first Bissell. First, I had to replace the belt for the rotor brush twice within a month. My second major problem the motor became louder and louder and then it stopped working. I took the vacuum to one of the warranty repair shops. The motor had to be replaced. After the repair, the machine started leaving scratches on my hard wood floors. I took it back to the same repair shop to fix the problem. They replace the plate on the bottom of the vacuum. The technician informed me I should not use the brush on hardwood floors even though the instructions came with the vacuum stated the vacuum could be used on hardwood and carpet. I wrote a letter to the MFC complaining about the problem. I received an immediate response from the MFC asking for pictures and proof of purchase. Bissell replaced the vacuum with a switch to turn off the brush. This machine has better suction than the previous machine. I have not had the vacuum long enough to determine if I am going to be satisfied but so far so good.

No Brush Power

By Lem from PA on 08/16/2014

I just recently got the Multi-Cyclonic pet vacuum and have only used a handful of times. Today while I was vacuuming, the unit started making weird noises & then the brush stopped working. I unscrewed the bottom of the unit and cleaned off the brush, however, when I turn the brush power button back on there is NO POWER. I can't believe that this vacuum has stopped after using less than 5x total.

Great At First but Doesn't Last

By SunshineLady512 from Virginia, USA on 08/14/2014

We purchased this vacuum in February 2011 when we moved. We loved it at first because it has the lift-off for stairs and the attachment did a great job of getting pet hair (we have two cats) off the stairs, curtains, and furniture. There are several problems with it: 1) it keeps clogging; 2) dust goes everywhere when you empty it; 3) it doesn't take very long to fill up the compartment - I have to empty it twice when vacuuming the stairs and the 3 upstairs bedrooms; 4) the brush keeps stopping and has to be cleaned; 5) the filter needs to be changed too often; 6) the Pet TurboBrush completely stopped working after about a year but we were told it was an attachment so it wasn't covered under the warranty but we could purchase a replacement; 7) the whole vacuum cleaner just completely died today when I was half-way up the stairs. We have had this vacuum for three and a half years so it is JUST outside of the warranty period. The last vacuum we owned (a different brand upright with a a bag) lasted about ten years! It still worked when we replaced it - I just wanted a bagless since the bags were getting hard to find. Now I wish we hadn't thrown it away! I think I'm going to have to use my handvac to finish vacuuming my stairs! A vacuum cleaner that is designed for pet owners to pick up pet hair and pet dander shouldn't keep clogging when being used for its intended use. I will never buy a Bissell again.

Great product, with great features.

By Crusaderboi from Hawaii on 08/11/2014

This unit was recommended by the carpet manufacturer. It has great power and great features. It keeps our carpet looking like when we moved in. The height adjustability is wonderful also! I thoroughly enjoy being able to just lift-off the motor and take it where I need to go. And the ingenious thought of the brush roll stopping when the vacuum is locked upright is just BRILLIANT! Thank you for making a wonderful vacuum for homes with pets. The only thing I do have a problem with is the brush. I initially thought the triangular dusting brush was a great idea, but I think I would appreciate a more traditional shape for dusting duties. Thank you.

Attachments not so good

By qwerty from Chalfont, PA on 08/04/2014

I don't like the piece they put on the hose that is supposed to help you attach it to the vacuum. It gets in the way of my fingers, sometimes hurting them, when I'm vacuuming with attachments. I have not found a way to get it off without destroying the hose. The only bare floor attachment they offer has little wheels, which I think would tend to get stuff wrapped around them, and I want a brush on that attachment. The suction attachment has little combs on the bottom so is not good to use on Berber. It's hard to find attachments elsewhere that will fit. I eventually found a connector piece to use with my old attachments, but I had to wrap tape around it for a good fit, and it's just a pain not to be able to use attachments without it. It would be a big plus if the lift-off part of the vac housed attachments. Other than those things, I like the vacuum very much. It picks up great, has strong suction with no noticeable loss after four years. The end caps on the motorized brush don't ever clog. I like the premotor filter cause it's easy to clean, except the slot it fits in is not air tight. If I were in the market again, I would have to pay attention to what attachments are offered and avoid one with an unnecessary piece on the end of the hose. Of course I'd like auto cord rewind too.

Good cleaning. Horrible emptying!

By thumbsdown from Philadelphia, PA on 07/22/2014

I bought my Bissell because I pets and love the cyclonic hose attachment. The vacuum has great suction and cleaning power. but emptying the vacuum is terrible! Almost every time, no matter how little I vacuum, I have to re-vacuum the area and clean off the vacuum itself because hair/fur and dust always fall out of the bagless dust cup. The floor, the vacuum and my hands are dirtier post emptying then before actually vacuuming. I try to take the vacuum outside to empty it because of the mess that it makes!

Love this vacuum!!!

By Manthie717 from Undisclosed on 07/05/2014

I have used my vacuum 3 times since I have owned it. I live in an apartment and own 3 Boston Terriers. I have an old carpet and it looks almost brand new. I never knew how much they shed until using this machine..and the amount of dirt this vacuum sucks up is amazing!! The Turbo Eraser is great too, it took out ground-in spots with ease. Great product Bissell. I would highly recommend this vacuum to people I know that have pets.

Hand wand does not work well or not at all

By MHunt from Minnesota on 05/30/2014

I have two dogs who shed a lot. I like the vacuum but the TurboBrush Tool does not work. It is powered by suction and the suction is going down. And the tool allows hair to get in the belt, clogs it, and stops it from working. I have to take it apart every use and then am only able to get two stairs completed before I have to open it again. So doing stairs and small places no longer works. Does this Tool have a recall or a replacement that will not allow hair to get in the belt.

Need a new vacuume

By mm7733 from Fairfax, VA, USA on 04/28/2014

At first I loved this vacuum because of the lift-off feature, however now 2 years later, it's the feature that I hate. To empty the container you pull out the lower half, and then all the dirt and pet dander falls from the top and makes a huge mess. The motor died on the carpet pet tool attachment after 6 months and the vacuum has lost most of it's suction power. I have to go back over the carpets 2-3 times and there is still dog hair that it doesn't pick up

Not made for pet hair on wood floors.

By StephTech from Seattle, WA, USA on 04/15/2014

I purchased this vacuum 5 months ago and it works okay but there are some design features I don't like and don't work well. First off, they designed this vacuum so you can vacuum a hard wood floor using it the regular way instead of using the attachments. What they don't understand is no vacuum will work well to pick up pet hair using it in normal mode. Not much hair would get picked up so using the attachments with the hose is essential in picking up all pet hair. The hose on the vacuum doesn't work well because they didn't think people would use it on wooden floors or hard surfaces. The hose doesn't pull out that much and snaps back pinching my hand. The attachments don't work well so I had to go out and buy different attachments. The wand was really short making it a back braking job to bend over and vacuum the floor. The suction is okay all though my old bag vacuum pulled more suction. It doesn't seem like any other brands care about the consumer using the attachments. I would love to help design these things because they just don't know what we really need. Now I digress. Next time I buy a vacuum I will make sure I can see how it works in person.

Great for six months and then lost all of its suction.

By #nastycarpet from Grand Rapids, MI, USA on 04/12/2014

Very bummed out about this vacuum. I purchased the red lift off a few years ago and it worked great. I ended up buying this one and giving my red one to another family member. For six months this vacuum was the same as far as the red one was. Nice features, I enjoyed the lift off technology for cleaning the stairs and made use out of all of the attachments. I always made sure to clean my filters and replace the hepa filter on the back. The bristles wore down (even with proper floor setting adjustments) and it lost all suction power. It couldn't even vacuum a small feather up, it actually picked it up briefly and spit it back out onto the carpet. Maybe mine had a defect in it. This one didn't have the blockage indicator that the red lift off had, but even so it performed poorly in comparison to the red lift off that wasn't meant for pets. Our family has a friend who works for Bissell and apparently there have been other issues with this vacuum as well which is sad considering the price.

Love this vacuum

By UtahDawn from Utah on 04/09/2014

I bought this vacuum (Bissell Lift-Off 89Q9) because of the recommendations I found on the internet that it would work on the soft plush carpets. I had new carpets put in my home a couple of weeks ago, and my vacuum wouldn't even move on it. I have been through 3 other vacuums, buying them and then taking them back - the Dyson, Shark, Eureka and my old one was a Dirt Devil. Nothing would move on that new carpet. My husband could push it with the greatest effort, but I could hardly move it at all. Today I got this vacuum and we were almost afraid to put it together and try it, but it works like a dream. Just glides over the carpet, and I don't even have it on the highest setting. So I am very pleased with that. I cannot say how it will be in the long run, but right now am thankful for a vacuum that will clean my carpet.

No stink from dogs when you turn it on

By ronm57 from Milwaukee, Wisconsin on 03/30/2014

This is the first vacuum I've had that doesn't smell like the dogs when I turn it on. I have tried many different vacuums over the years including a very expensive Dyson. I've had mine for a couple of years now. We have 2 dogs that shed like crazy and this never stinks when you turn it on!! It picks up great and I love the lift off feature. I just had to order a replacement extension wand because a plastic ring inside cracked but it was a reasonable amount .

Can't get any better than this

By Army Mom from Texas Gulf Coast on 03/14/2014

Just purchased my second one of these. Won't ever use any other brand or model. The detachable canister has me spoiled. I buy the floor accessory and away I go. Live on the Texas Gulf Coast with rescue dogs and cats who track in sand so I am constantly vacuuming my tile and wood floors. It's so convenient to just carry the canister around while I clean up after them. If you haven't experienced the convenience of a detachable canister you are missing out. This is a wonderful vacuum and worth every penny. Buy it, you won't regret the investment.

Pet Vacuum Extradordinaire

By bignewf from Raleigh, North Carolina on 03/06/2014

I have 2 giant Newfoundland dogs, each weighing over 200lbs. The amount of daily hair from these dogs defies description. They can trash your house in a matter of hours. So I consider this the ultimate test of any vacuum. The hair can generate enough static electricity to light a house. It embeds in any type of carpet deeply, as if growing roots into the pile. I have owned 3 Dysons, only to become disappointed after a few months of constant breakage. However, the suction on a Dyson made me keep buying them until I said no more wasting money on an expensive, unreliable product. I have had Bissell carpet cleaners which worked well, so I figured I would give one of your models a try. The vacuum assembled in just a few minutes, and within the first minute or so of vacuming I was impressed with the excellent suction and that the cannister was almost filled! The carpets looked like new. The ergonometric design of the handle, light weight and compact body made vacuming a breeze.The amount of attachments that come with this product add to the value and convenience. Also, the cannister removes in a second and fits back without effort. Just a few negatives, which are minor: The cannister fills up rapidly, they could have designed a larger one as compared to a dyson. So you need to constantly empty it. Some of the attachments do not stay on the body while vacuming. You have to bend over to remove the hose from the bottom of the body to fit on the attachments. You have to clean the brushes several times also. But because of the awesome cleaning power, I give this 4.stars. Bissell, why not make a model with a metal brush? I have a panasonic upright which does not clean as well as this model, but a metal brush does not have to be cleaned often. hope this product lasts as the pet hair does not stick to it. This vacuum passed my test of the ultimate pet vac in the first 5 minutes out of the box. . I would definitely recommend this model to anyone with a large, long haired breed that has gone through several vacuums.

3/2014 Review of Lift-Off Pet vacuum

By BM from Shelton, WA 98584, USA on 03/04/2014

I have had this vacuum for over two years now. I am always amazed at how much pet hair this vacuum sucks off the carpets. I like the detachable unit with handle when I clean above the tops of cupboards and furniture. It is easier to use than our 12 year old more expensive canister vacuum. In regard to maintenance, the premotor filter and secondary cyclone are easy to clean. I feel this vacuum has been worth the money so far.

I have never HATEd a vacuum but I HATE this one

By Love the Healthy Home from Virginia on 02/22/2014

The vacumm canister dumping sysyem is the worst I have ever seen. The vacuum suction has a lot of power, that works very well. However everytime you dump the canister the dirt falls back onto your floors and all over the vacumm. This is the worst design I have ever seen. The handle is not comfortable either, it makes your hadn hurt. Bissell Please bring back the Healthy Home. IThe Healthy Home is the best vacuum I have ver used. I could not locate parts/filters for the Healthy Home or a new Healthy Home vaccumm. Do not waster your money times or peace of mind on the LIFTOFF cyclonic Pet vaccum.

Excellent Vacuum!

By Staggerweed from North Carolina on 02/22/2014

This has to be one of the best vacuum cleaners I have ever owned, which include Electrolux, Rainbow, Dirt Devil, & Hoover. After a couple of years, I let a family member borrow it b/c their vacuum had quit. When it was returned, I used it & noticed within 15 minutes that it wasn't picking up as usual, had a different sound, & got so hot that I couldn't touch the filter cover on the back. I took it apart, and there was a sock stuck in the very bottom of the hose where the cleaner "bends". After removing the sock, the vacuum never worked as it had before. I sold it to the family member that had borrowed it, explaining why it didn't work as well as it did. I am now trying to find one on sale.

A solid vacuum, nice features and attachments, but has some issues

By MaineVacuumer from Waterville, ME, USA on 02/21/2014

I purchased the 89Q9 nearly two years ago from the most popular surplus website. Fortunately I bought the extended warranty from the site. The vacuum motor failed within a year and since it was under warranty I didn't crack the case to find out why or if it could be fixed until after the site refunded my money. They didn't want the machine back as it was too bulky and expensive for them to have shipped back at their expense. So I got store credit for that site. After I got the credit I opened the case and found the interior of the machine caked with Carpet Fresh. I'm not sure if the manual stated not to use those types of powdered deodorants but the Carpet Fresh dust was clearly too fine to be captured by the pre-motor filter and caked the motor and motor brushes up to the point of failure. I thoroughly cleaned the inside of the case and the motor and motor brushes and lubricated the motor brushes, cleaned and/or replaced all filters and the machine worked as good as new. So I guess I got a vacuum cleaner for free as I used the store credit for kitchen supplies :) We no longer use Carpet Fresh or the like and we haven't had a problem with the machine since. As long as you keep the filter maintenance up and don't vacuum too fine of dust (I would imagine drywall or concrete dust would kill the machine too) the machine should last for years.

Bissel Lift-Off

By Blanche from Texas on 02/21/2014

I have had this machine for less than two years. I have had to have it repaired for various problems. Now it has lost suction, can't use the attachments, because there is not enough suction. I would purchase another Bissell product, but Not this one. I take good care of my "investments". I have become very adept at troubleshooting and fixing this machine myself. Have lost lots of time in regards toa maintaining this cleaner.

great vacuum but human negligence broke it!!

By Middleton from Linden, MI 48451, USA on 02/17/2014

I really liked my vacuum I had for about 8 years. I didn't disassemble to clean it properly. I cleaned out the dirt catcher and checked the filters but not the other cleanable parts. The yellow canister above the dirt catcher comes out easily, breaks into 2 parts for cleaning. it has 2 hooks that looks like you twist it when reassembling but you don't twist it. It hooks inside when you put the pieces back up inside. Very easy actually. Now that I know how to disassemble and re-assemble properly, if you take an extra 5 or 10 minutes every time you vacuum this vacuum will probably last for 20 years. These parts keep the hoses and motor from getting plugged. I am buying a new one today.

great while it lasted about 2 years

By HG from Youngstown, OH, USA on 01/20/2014

Bought this vacuum for the pet features. Worked great for about 2 years maybe a little longer. Always kept the maintainence up on it, so nothing is clogged or dirty (hoses belts filters ect). Started getting a burning smell and brush stopped turning. Thinking it's the motor or something like that. Now I am going to have to purchase a new vacuum. Didn't think I was going to have to do that only after a couple years.

Will never buy another Bissell

By WhiteLilac71 from Elgin, IL, USA on 01/19/2014

Bought this because it was suppose to be for pets. Hate that it is bagless. I don't like getting up close and personal with the dirt. Much prefer one with bags. Every year since I bought this, it has had the brush roller seize up and freeze. This burns up the belts. The brush roller, of course is not covered under warranty. I've never had to buy a brush roller for any vacuum and this one which I've only owned for three years is asking for a third brush roller and they aren't cheap. I'm looking for another vacuum and this one will end up in the trash heap.

Great for the first 2 years, then replaced

By Mrs. L from MN on 01/17/2014

We bought this vacuum when we bought our home about 2 years ago and loved it. The stair cleaning attachment belt wore out after the first year, but I wasn't too surprised or sad about that. But then a few months ago I noticed how loud it was getting to be. It drove my husband crazy! The motor revved so high it sounded like it would blow up. It even dimmed the lights in the house! So I called Bissell and told them my problems. The nearest repair place was 2 hrs from my home so they had an alternative. They had me cut off the cord of my vacuum, and ship it to them with a label they sent to me. I am currently awaiting a replacement vacuum identical to mine which should be delivered next week. I'm sad I had to go through this process, but I'm happy that Bissell replaced my vacuum for free. (My vacuum was still under warranty, FYI)

Starts out great

By Kim with the broken vacuum... from Westerville, OH, USA on 12/15/2013

When I first got this vacuum, it was great. It picked up the cat hair in the carpets and the dirt and dust. Then all the sudden the first thing that went wrong with it was the motor went out. A vacuum should last more that 3 years. The motor shouldn't die before the belt. To make matters worse, I can't even order a new motor because Bissell doesn't sell those type of parts to customers. What a waste...

Works fine until it falls apart on you

By Kim from Westerville, OH, USA on 12/13/2013

Vacuum was adequate, you had to vacuum the area twice to pick up all of the debree (dust, dirt, pet hair, whatever) and the cannister didn't hold much more than 1/4 of its capacity, but if you went through the room twice, you got a good cleaning. Motor is weak and it gets clogged very quickly. Save yourself some heartache and get a Kirby.

The Best

By Vic55 from Missouri, USA on 12/04/2013

This vacuum cleaner is the best! This is my third one, only because my two sons borrowed the other two and liked them so well that they did not want to return them. My husband for some reason thought I needed a "more expensive" vacuum cleaner for Christmas last year. I went as long as I could without my Bissell Lift-Off and ended up ordering another one last month. Still love my Bissell Lift-Off!

I have had this vacuum for several years and I can't believe how well it gets the dog hair up! I am currently staying in my mothers house with my dog and her two vacuums could not and would not pick up the hair off the rug. Just pushed it around. When my husband came up to visit I asked him to bring the Bissell vacuum!!! I tossed out my mothers 2 since they were worthless in picking anything up. I am home for the holidays and have had to use a rarely used Hoover that was in basement. I can't stand the Hoover!!! Needless to say I asked for a new Bissell vacuum for Christmas!! YES I did ask for a vacuum for Christmas!!! I love that I can lift it off to get the dog hair off the steps!!! It is great getting the dog hair and debris in the car as well!!

Great performer! Can compare to a commercial vacuum!

By spongebob234 from Aurora, CO, USA on 12/03/2013

This is a good vacuum all in all. great suction E.T.C. the problems i had with it was a belt giving out, brush roll freezing in place (had to replace), the tilt button does not lock vacuum in place anymore (does not stand up), and last a headlight giving out. 4 problems in 4 and a half to 5 years. not bad. i just hope i can fix or replace the pedal to make the tilt lock again :( thank you Bissell!

My new vac!

By LFoens from Marion, IA, USA on 11/15/2013

I am a long time Bissell customer. I just got the 89Q9 pet vac and so far I am very happy with it. My only complaint is that it's heavier than my last Bissell. I like the tools and especially the lift off ability. The final reason I went with the Bissell was the Bissell Pet Foundation. I am a huge supporter of animal rights and the fact that you donated part of the $ from my purchase is fantastic. Thank you for being socially responsible.

good vac, but pet brush doesn't stay

By punkit from ohio on 11/03/2013

The vacuum works great. We have two cats and a dog. The pet brush doesn't necessarily perform as good as we had hoped - It doesn't get everything off our (microfiber) sofas. And, make sure you have a big rubber band to keep it attached to the handle. Ours NEVER stays in.....rather irritating. ps - entering this information Bissell asks what surface top we use this for....everything. wood floor, tile, dusting, carpet, rugs, upholstry.....

Best cleaner I've ever had

By JB from Upstate, NY USA on 10/26/2013

Cleans great...can't believe how much dirt the cleaner gets out of the carpet! Out performs every other cleaner we've ever had. This is our first Bissell...wish we had bought one years ago!

Absolutely TERRIBLE product

By jafinsd from San Diego, CA, USA on 10/16/2013

I received this vacuum as a gift (if I had spent my own money I would be even MORE frustrated!) - and from the look of it you would never imagine how horrible this vacuum would be. My two main issues are, it NEVER had good suction - and over time, with regular, consistent cleaning out of ALL filters, - the suction is about 40% of what it was (which was NOT very strong, as I said :) #2 - I like to utilize is the hose part as I do a lot of cleaning/remodeling as part of my business, and thus I would love it if the hose could stretch, but with this $#*% vacuum, when you try to stretch the hose just a LITTLE bit the stupid thing falls over!! I guess I'm at fault too for not accepting this & not keep trying to do what it can't - but unfortunately that's not the case & I've had it fall over/knock into me (I don't know how else to phrase it??) SO many times - that the last time it happened I vowed to at least write a review in the hopes of saving someone else the frustration. I do believe the person who bought it for me paid full price & that makes me SICK!! Do yourself a favor & do NOT buy it, you will thank me!! lol :)

My Border Collie sheds twice a year, and this vacuum picked up hair that 2 other vacuums apparently missed. I also ordered the stair brush.

Best Buy You Will Ever Make

By Cleaning Lady from Wrightwood, CA on 09/09/2013

I waited a while before I wrote my review of this vacuum. It is simply the best vacuum I have ever owned and I have owned many. Until I retired, I cleaned homes for a living. It moves so smooth, picks up stuff you never knew could be in your carpeting. I had just rented a big heavy commercial carpet cleaning unit and just a week before I purchased this vacuum, cleaned my carpeting extremely well. I vacuumed my livingroom carpeting and it filled the cup. I vacuumed more and it filled it up half way again. It never stopped picking up dust and dirt and pet hair and WHO ELSE KNOWS WHAT. My carpeting is pretty old and we have always had pets. I think I was picking up hair from a Labrador we had that passed away in 2010. You will love this machine if you decide to purchase it. As with any vacuum, always empty your dirt cup or throw away your bag. Never allow it to get too full or you will only do damage. Keep your filters cleaned

great VAC especially for the money -- has most of the features needed for many vac jobs.

By ATLcycler from Atlanta, GA, USA on 09/06/2013

I'd definitely recommend this VAC especially for the money. I have 3 other vaccums that are used for various types of vac jobs: hardwood floors, marble tile, automobile carpet and seats, closet shelves and floors under clothes. the other vacs I have are: an Oreck XL21 with hepa filter and bag, a Shark vac & steam for the tile, and hardwood floors, a dirt devil bag mini-vac for the cars. I haven't used the lift off Bissell vac for the cars yet, but have ran it through the work for everthing else. I think in many ways it holds up well to the Oreck, and is lighter, and easier to use. I noticed that it picked up dirt from the carpet as good, or better in some cases than the Oreck. I still prefer a bagged vac over a bagless, because this one is better, but you still have to wear a glove to empty the dust bin if you don't want to get your hands dirty. that's why I prefer a bagged vac -- I don't want to get in the dirt when I empty out the trash bins for the bagless vacs. this one is better, but I still had to touch a little dirt, that was pulled up into the chamber above the dust collector bin. I bought it mainly for the lift off feature, and all of the accessories that it has. loved how you can turn off the brush, and it worked great to vac my closet shelves and floor under clothes in my closet. the spin speed was a little too much to vac rugs on carpet and tile -- maybe if you can add a spin rotation speed adjustment that would make your vac even better. I really loved it. so I'd recommend it to anyone who needs a good vac, and especially for the money -- it's a great vac to consider, even if you don't have pets.

Great on my frieze carpet

By Jxc06 from Battle Creek, MI, USA on 07/14/2013

For anyone with Frieze carpet they know not all vacuums work on it. I have Mohawk Smart strand Silk and just got this vacuum based on the recommendation of Bissell Customer Service and some blogs. This worked beautifully! I had it on the highest setting, beater bar off and it picked up lots of dog hair and dirt. And because the height clears the carpet without digging in you could also use it with the beater bar on. So for those of you with Frieze this vacuum worked wonderfully for me and I give it 2 thumbs up. I only have carpet so can't comment on how it does on hard wood floors.

Worked Only a Few Months then stopped

By Gdomz27 from Chino, CA, USA on 07/07/2013

Same as an earlier review. Had it for 5 months and the brush stopped spinning. Tried everything and still nothing. So I went back to using my old vacuum. Figured I'd take it to get fixed, but haven't had time. I was hoping I'd get offered a place to take it to get fixed or a new one, but I only got offered tips.

Really Nice Vac!

By FinerCactus94 from North Vernon, IN, USA on 06/29/2013

Before I bought this model, I was looking for a vacuum that would allow me to turn off the brush roller. My old machine didn't have that feature. Being able to detach the canister is just an added bonus. I haven't had the machine very long, so I haven't used it very many times. It's doing a great job so far. When I emptied the dust cup after the first use, it looked like I'd vacuumed up half a cat. The pet tool does a really good job. The dust bin is easy to empty. I really like being able to take this vacuum apart to clean it. That's another feature my old machine didn't have. I love the color, too. :-)

Thoroughly removes pet hair and dirt, but a little clumsy to use

By LilysHousekeeper from Huntsville, AL, USA on 06/17/2013

The number one thing I love about this vacuum after using it weekly for the last two months, is that all of the ground in dirt and pet hair in the carpets is gone, and the air in my home is clean! I was amazed to see how much dirt my last vacuum left behind after the first time I used my new Bissell and emptied the dirt canister! Pros: I love that the vacuum's main portion detaches easily so you can carry it around to clean surfaces. All the cat hair is gone! It really deep cleans my carpets! The pet hair spinning brush attachment works miracles too. I even use it to clean the hair off my cat's perch and cat tower. I like having so many floor/carpet height settings so I can find just the right one for my carpets, rugs, and bare floors. The ability to turn the spinning of the vacuum's floor brush on/off separately from turning the vacuum itself on/off comes in handy a lot. Easy to empty canister and the HEPA filter removes the allergens from the air very efficiently. (My Father-in-law is highly allergic to my cat but loves to come over and since we got this vacuum, he doesn't sneeze and his eyes don't water anymore!) Cons: The other brush attachment doesn't work as well as my old vacuum's does for dusting surfaces so I kept that old attachment and use it in place of the new one. The detachable canister doesn't stay upright on its own very well as you reach and clean away from it. In their effort to make it light, they forgot to make it more stable. So I have to hold it with one hand as I walk around cleaning with the other. Overall: Great vacuum for the price and I'm glad I bought it. I'll have to see how easy it is to replace filters and belts, but in the mean time I'm elated that the cat hair can be thoroughly cleaned up so easily!

Mostly great

By Rooster30 from Michigan on 06/13/2013

This is really an awesome vacuum for the price range. The only downsides are its overall weight and clumsiness. Suction power, attachments are all great, it works on all the different floors and fabrics in my place, which is key with two dogs and three cats. I did have one issue with the pet tool but Bissell replaced it immediately, no questions asked. So all in all a great buy. A little more maneuverability would've gotten this one 5 stars.

Just Awful!

By Christy from Columbus, OH, USA on 05/24/2013

I got this vacuum as a wedding gift. I used it MAYBE 5 times and the brush has stopped spinning. I cleaned the brush which was practically spotless and hair free considering how NEW it is. Still not spinning! I'm so disappointed in this product.

LOVE THIS VACUUM!

By LAinCA from Sacramento, CA, USA on 05/06/2013

After buying and using my new Bissell Proheat 2X carpet cleaner 2 months ago, I was so pleased that I decided to purchase a Bissell vacuum too and am I ever glad I did. I wasnt that satisfied with my Hoover or Sears vacuums and the Hoover was always clogging up, the suction was bad, and it was really hard to empty the plastic dirt chamber. Ive been using my new Bissell vacuum for over a month and it does an AMAZING job getting up hair and dirt that's probably been embedded in my carpets for years. The carpets not only look great after I vacuum but the house smells so much cleaner and fresher too. The cord on the vacuum is also extra long so I only need to plug it into 2 outlets to vacuum the entire house. On all of my other previous vacuums, I needed to use three or four different outlets. That might seem like a little thing but it just makes vacuuming quicker and more convenient. And, the removal of the plastic dirt bag or container is so easy and quick to empty that you do it without touching or breathing in any yucky dirt or debris. It's also easy to rinse it out so the dirt container is clean each time you vacuum. That's one big thing I disliked about my 2 year old Hoover bagless as it was such a messy job to empty out the dirt. I just couldn't be happier with my Bissell Lift-Off Multi-Cyclonic Pet Vacuum and Im SOLD on Bissell products!

Fantastic for carpet with dogs!

By Lalli from Atlanta, GA, USA on 05/05/2013

I was in pain because I was unable to vacuum my carpet from my dog hairs and I decided to buy this one. My carpet changed color and my husband asked me if I washed it, but just a simple vacuum was enough! Also the detached canister is wow to clean the stairs and the pet turbo brush it's amazing! You can move wherever you want, rasonable light and handle. Easy to clean too, it is worth the price and more!!!

Worked great for a while...

By lilypad from Isanti, MN on 04/28/2013

We were SO impressed with this vacuum initially. The suction was fantastic and it picked up so much that our old vacuum had left behind. However, a black rubber gasket broke off of the bottom of the cyclone container. Now we have to clean out the cyclone after vacuuming for about 1 minute - all the dirt and pet hair stays there and no longer falls into the dirt canister. Sadly, there is no replacement gasket available so the vacuum is virtually useless. We only have one carpeted bedroom and two area rugs, the rest of our home has hardwood. With such little use we really expected this vacuum to last for many years as our previous one did.

Quality Equipment that makes owning pets safe and fun.

By MissEmily7789 from MO Ozarks on 04/26/2013

Being a pet owner for over four decades has made keeping my home clean a challenge. Originally, all it took was keeping a liter box clean, but then later I preferred the attention that only a dog can give. But that requires a lot more effort. Between toilet training, shedding and marking the area as yours it has been a challenge to have the joy of family but still have a nice home to meet visitors. Bissell has finally made it possible for me to have the best of both worlds between a carpet shampooer and an upright vacuum that was able to deal with the evidence of my fluffy friends. Definitely a six-star rating! They only had five stars so I had to write it here manually. Don't hesitate to buy the one you are considering. -- A long time breeder.

HATE IT!

By Lisa from Kansas City, MO, USA on 04/26/2013

I thought since I have two dogs and my daughter needs a vacuum I would hand down my regular Bissell. So I got the special pet vacuum. Cons : picks up some pet hair from my short haired dogs , must be emptied often (seriously every two rooms) and never even half full, also doesn't pick up the dirt the regular Bissell did, also it is heavy. No pros to this.

The love has faded fast

By MyBlueBissell from Arlington, MA, USA on 04/23/2013

I initially loved this machine. Its power both through the main floor sweeper and the hose was impressive. I couldn't believe the amount of dirt accumulated in the cup after one or two vacuums - it made me think that I had never really deeply cleaned the carpet and nooks and crannies before...BUT...barely 18 months later it is consistently clogging and barely picks up dry cereal. Thumbs down on the pet tool, which would probably bother me more if I had a pet, but I don't. I used it a few times at a dogowner friend's house. I didn't see the magic -- it was easier to use the tube and/or the crevice tool attachment. So the pet tool just became an annoying thing that kept falling off and banging on the floor. I finally put it away in a drawer and didn't care because I was so satisfied with the cleaning power of the rest of the machine. I always routinely emptied the cup when it was barely half full and regularly checked for clogs in every area. I've washed the washable filter, but haven't replaced the other non-washable filter yet. I'm hesitant to pay the money because I'm hard-pressed to believe that small filter is the cause of such major loss of suction. It seems that just over a year old it began to regularly clog up with rug lint. It seemed to me that the brush was vigorously pulling off the fibers of our rugs but the suction wasn't enough to pull it through the tubes, so I would end up with huge clumps of rug fibers accumulating in the tube. I'd use a broom handle to push it out and clear out all passages, and it would start again immediately. It's not sucking up the dirt IN my area rugs -- it's just scrubbing off the fibers FROM my rugs. When cleaning my kitchen floor, the floor brush spins the crumbs and dirt backward across the floor toward my feet -- hardly any dirt goes up into the vacuum. I'm sad and irritated. I put a lot of time into researching and making the right choice for my usage. I was happy for about a year -- not even close to long enough for a vacuum cleaner.

Hate the vacuum

By Diane from Suburb of Philadelphia on 04/20/2013

This vacuum is HORRIBLE. We have had this vacuum for over a year and we have never liked it. We bought this one because it is suppose to be for pet hair " NO. We have a cat, but I have long hair and my sister has thick hair so we thought this would be good. Nope. The brush has all our hair wrapped around it. If I dont cut it off every other time we use it the brush wont spin as well and wont pick up. Cutting off the hair is very hard because the plastic bottom has 6 screws you have to take off it get to the brush easily, but that is inconvenient to do a couple of times a month. The easiest way to cut the hair is to rest the heavy vacuum on your legs so the brush is higher up and you dont have to lay on the floor, but it is painful having the weight of the vacuum resting on you. Even if I cut the hair from the brush it still doesnt pick up well. It wont pick up fuzz, dirt, and when I put our Christmas tree away it had a VERY hard time picking up the pieces that were on the ground. I have changed the carpet height setting and it still wont pick up anything. When I try to clean the hardwood floor it doesnt pick up the crumbs either. I thought I was just having a hard time finding the correct setting, but it just doesnt work. I have tried all 7 of the height settings and it still does not pick up. The pet brush doesnt work either. The brush also has a hard time turning. I have turned it on and just hold it, not against anything, and the brush wont turn. I can run it over the same spot of my sofa multiple times and the cat hair is still there. I thought maybe I should make sure I am cleaning the vacuum properly so I read the manual and then I cut the hair from the brush and cleaned and replaced everything the book said to. After taking out all the pieces it says to keep clean, cleaning them thoroughly, and I mean OCD thoroughly, letting them dry overnight and putting the vacuum back together when I went to vacuum it still didnt work. Overall this vacuum doesnt work. I can pick up the stuff on my floors faster by getting on my hands and knees and picking up the individual pieces. Either we got the dud, or this is a horrible vacuum. Dont waste your money

3 Cats and Counting

By abcatz from Mission, TX, USA on 04/06/2013

I did not know there was any vacuum that could keep up with three shedding cats one of which has very long hair - boy was I wrong. My carpets have never looked this good. I love this cleaner. The attachments are easily used and stored. I like the detach capability for use on my stairs. This vacuum has everything and more that I was looking for in a new cleaner!

TERRIBLE!!!

By KM from Milford, NH, USA on 03/07/2013

I bought this to replace a tiny cheapo vacuum that I have had for 8 years. The old one (that I had thought was horrible, which is why it was being replaced) worked better than this one did. I returned it to the store and bought a Shark for $20 more. I vacuumed with the Bissell the night before, then used the Shark and had to empty the canister 3 times before I was done! The Bissell wouldn't even pick up cat food. I had to actually put the cat food in the tube and even then it would barely suck it up. And the dirt cup is so messy and horribly designed. It makes a huge mess every time you need to empty it. This is the worst vacuum I have ever used and would not recommend it to anyone. Spend the extra $20 and get a Shark.

it really works

By SuzieQ from New Castle, DE 19720, USA on 03/07/2013

After years of struggling to get up both cat and dog hair, this a vac that delivers what it says. You don't have to go over the carpet many times to remove it all. I have a set of very steep stairs, and the lift off unit has finaly gotten the dog hair off them. It was super easy to assemble, and is easy to use. The cord is long and flexible so you aren't hunting for outlets. I had read a review of this vac in a pet magazine and they had rated it higher than machines priced twice as much. Well.... they were on target with that advice. Most product reviews tend to be a bit inflated but not this one. If you have pets GET THIS Vacuum.

This product does pick up pet hair, easy to use.

By Busy mom from Milwaukie, OR, USA on 03/03/2013

The reason this vacuum does not have4, 5 stars is because since day one of purchasing this product the handle always slides loose from the body of the vacuum. I don't know if this is because of the life off feature or what. All I know is that it's a safety hazard especially with young crawling children ,because the vacuum handle will just come off in your hand while vacuuming. I have owned a few vacuums in my days ( Kirby, Hoover, exc.. and have never had this happen to one of those. The pet hair feature is accurate it cleans up all of my labs pet hair. I love how easy it is to use and the filters last a really really long time. I just wish I could fix the handle issue!!!!!!!!.

My Mistake

By jillian726 from Beaufort, SC, USA on 03/03/2013

Before I bought this I knew the "pet tool" was for cleaning upholstery. I have a cat. But I was hoping to use the detachable canister to easily sweep up kitty litter kicked out around the litter box. Or kitty kibble knocked out of her bowl. (Persia is a messy eater.) There was no hose attachment that would make the lift-off feature of this vacuum make this chore any easier. As with my other (different brand) vacuum I have to use it in the upright position. This requires moving the litter box and mat, and the mats under the cat food and water bowls. So, not what I expected for faster cleanup. The vacuum is good, otherwise. But I might have bought a different one, or even a different brand. I got sucked into (pardon the pun) the idea of truly easier cleaning up after my cat. This vac is more geared towards dog owners. Jill

Ahh-Mazing

By ASL Debbie from Denver, Co on 02/27/2013

If you have pets, this vacuum is a must. I needed a new vac so I just bought another Kenmore to replace my old Kenmore since I loved that one so much. I wasn't thrilled with it, but it was okay. I purchased this Bissell when I started to smell a burned smell from my 1 month olf Kenmore. Here is what hooked me: I already vacuumed the house with the Kenmore, but I wanted to try the new vacuum anyway. OMG! The Bissell sucked up a ton of dirt and dog hair! It sucked up all the leftover nastiness my Kenmore couldn't or didn't. I was so impressed that I went out and bought another Bissell to keep downstairs. It cleans up dog hair extremely well and picks up the finest of dirt particles. Think of all the dirt that dogs bring in on their paws. My house looks much cleaner and smells so much better too. LOVE this vacuum. It is truly a MUST have!!

Brush not spinning

Vacuum is over a year old. Worked fine last time I used it. Today the brush will not spin. Read manual and checked belt and cleaned filters. Made sure vacuum is sitting properly. No luck. It appears the motor for the brush is not working. Will check consumer reports and buy a replacement.

Does Its Job!

By Etrnlife316 from IL on 02/23/2013

I researched vacuum cleaners and decided on this one because we have a thick, deep carpet that does not allow other vacuums to glide easily - this one works well since you can adjust the settings. A piece broke after only 3 uses, but Bissell replaced it under warranty - I just hope that this is not an indication as to the quality of the machine! I would give it 5 stars except for the broken part but I am hoping it will work well for years to come! The only other thing I want to mention - when picking up pet fur, the dust cup becomes very staticy, so I wipe the dust cup down with a fabric softener sheet to try to cut back on the static.

Good vacuum

By cathy from Delaware, USA on 02/23/2013

Just purchased the machine and only used it once. Easy to put together, like being able to turn off the beater brush for hardwood floors. Noticed it picked up alot of fine dust from my carpets. When brush is on it pulls easily forward but takes energy to pull it back which is not a problem for myself but my elderly mother would not be able to handle it. Am pleased with the purchase and look forward to using it for many years. Seems like a very sturdy machine plus I feel safe with the Bissell reputation.

It sucks very well.It also picks up hair and dirt well.We have noticed that it is easy to use.We also have many pets.No problems so far, except you need to clean the filters a lot, and it takes a while for the filters to dry after being cleaned.A problem is that it is very heavy.Another problem is that our head light went out all of a sudden.This is regarding the brand Bissell.My mother in law's vacuum died in December at age 8, but it had been going down hill and losing suction for about a year before it died.

this is a great vacuum

By Josie from Mead, WA, USA on 02/17/2013

I had no problems putting the vacuum together and it picks up animal hair great. I have two large dogs and three cats that shed horribly and the vacuum gets it all up with no problem. I am so happy that I got this vacuum.

AWESOME!

By PATZ5652 from Simi Valley, CA, USA on 02/14/2013

This vacuum has amazing deep cleaning capacity and is gentle when it needs to be. While I have two rooms & stairs with carpeting, the rest of the house is adobe style tile covered by rugs, 2 being large orientals (not silk). I was unsure how well the vacuum & the rugs would "get along". Having hand carried them from Istanbul they have great meaning to me. Also, they hadn't been cleaned in about 10 yrs when the custom cleaner retired. My concern was needless. This vacuum deep cleaned both the wool and the cotton without incident and they look like new! As to the carpeting, I completely agree with the other reviews. The amount of DIRT being extracted is amazing. Since, I now live in a "dirt bowl" known as Simi Valley, CA, I can finally enjoy the comfort of a truly clean house. What a relief! Thanks Bissell. P.S. Keeping all the filters clean is important. That's why the 15 yr. old vacuum for my NYC apt (no carpet) is still going strong. It just wasn't designed for the cleaning I need here.

Great suction.

By Sandy from NJ on 02/10/2013

This vacuum picks up everything. As a test, I ran my canister vac over the rug, then re-vacuumed with this upright - I couldn't believe all the hair and dust that the canister missed. I love this vac!

Love Love Love it!

By Jersey Girl from Wayne, NJ, USA on 02/10/2013

This is just a great vacuum. I'd read some reviews where people thought it was heavy to move, the cord could be longer, the canister was too small, etc. I'm not sure what these people had prior but I disagree with all negative comments and absolutley recommend this product 100%. I vacuumed one area rug and was SHOCKED to see how much dirt and dust came out. The lift-off stair cleaner and turbo pet tool are just fantastic! Highly recommend this vacuum to anyone and if you happen to have pets...even more so.

2 vacuums for the price of 1

By peggy00 from phila, pa on 01/31/2013

This is the 3rd bissell vacuum cleaner in a row i have purchased, and with each new one i got i would try to replace the exact one never thinking they could improve the current one at the time i needed it to find out different. I have wall to wall carpet and hardwood steps, i suffer with severe back problems and the ease with which there is in removing the detachable canister to do the steps has had no bearing whatsoever on my condition. I have had dogs for as long as i have had my bissell pet friendly vacuums and i'm positive i will remain a bissell customer forever. I have also used the turbo eraser attachment on other things in my home e.g., curtains, coats, car interior. In the very near future i hope to purchase a carpet cleaner as my new vacuum has such deep cleaning suction it has started to show carpet stains i was not aware of but with 6 grandchildren age 5 and under in my house 5 days a week is totally understandable. When looking for my new vacuum on your web page you couldn't have made it any easier for me to know exactly where i could go to purchase it as i didn't even want to wait a couple of days for it to be delivered and when i brought it home once again i was amazed at the ease of use and thorough cleaning it did. Your forever customer thanks you.

Good for short term

By Happy Baker from St. Louis, MO, USA on 01/28/2013

I have two children and two Siberian huskies who regularly blow their coats, so a vacuum that can handle lots of debris and fur is a must. When I first brought my Bissell home, I was thrilled. It did such an amazing job--my floors never looked cleaner, and the dirt bin was easy to empty. We've had it for 3 years now, and it's starting to go downhill. We regularly pull out the dirt bin and the filter above and clean them out thoroughly, but fur still gets sucked up and stuck in the filter instead of emptying into the bin, and I have to reach up and pull it out, which spreads fur and dust and dirt flying everywhere and I have to vacuum again. It's a gross mess. I think it's time to replace it, and I'm not sure I'll buy another Bissell. It was great in the beginning, but this is just causing a headache every time I have to vacuum.

One of the best uprights we've ever owned.

By R&D from Lansing, MI, USA on 01/17/2013

This model is one of the best all around uprights out there. We've always owned Hoover or Kenmore but have to thank our neighbor for pointing us to this one. They have a dog like ours and decided to purchase the Bissell Lift-Off. They were so happy with it that we decided to investigate and try it ourselves. We are very glad we did and have been pleased with the amount of suction and power it has. But most of all, we LOVE the detachable canister. It allows you to clean almost anywhere and picks up pet hair better than anything else we've used in the past. After more then a year of use, it's holding up well and we're still happy owners. Proper maintenance is the key. Keep BOTH filters clear and this vacuum will perform good as ever. Care should be used when cleaning some of the dirt canister parts. We had to replace the inner cyclone after some rough handling broke the plastic tabs, but the replacement part was fairly inexpensive at the Bissell.com web site. Overall, it's still a peach of a vacuum for the money and we would not hesitate to buy another one.

Lift-Off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum

By Mike from Manchester, NH, USA on 01/15/2013

This is by far one of the best machines I have used and bought. I am extremly happy! I have friends and family that can be stubborn and not listen to me and buy this model. They just keep buying other barnds andf models... They have gone through so many vacuum's when if they had bought this one in the first place they would saved alot of money in the long run. You will be amazed with this machine as I am.

Pet owner

By Pet mom from Arkansas, USA on 01/15/2013

I have had this vacuum for almost 2 years and specifically bought it for the pet hair and I have been disappointed since I bought it. My previous vacuum was over 10 years old and worked better. I would not recommend this if you are expecting powerful suction.

Solid Performance

By mkm from Louisville, KY, USA on 01/14/2013

Have now used the Bissell Lift Off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum for several weeks. Love it! We have two indoor cats and I am very pleased with how well the vacuum does sucking up their fur, my long hair and the ordinary dust and dirt that is tracked into a house. We have tile & carpeted floors. Huge pluses are the ease of checking both filters and emptying the dirt cup. Dirt cup seems to have a decent capacity, I am in the habit of emptying after each run of the vac, although it doesn't need to be. The Grab & Go feature for the Lift Off portion is easy to use & incredibly lightweight. My old vac was a canister, so this unit acts semi as both canister & upright. Although, its canister does not have wheels - hint, hint for the next version The Combo Tool has a cool little part inside that allows suction to be changed depending on type of cleaning. I bought the Contour Tool Pet attachment and find it to be far more useful for my cleaning needs. It works great for removing fur from furniture, and dust from the bookshelves. It's also great for removing dust in odd nooks & crannies. Which leads into the negatives: 1) wish the Contour Tool Pet would attach to the vac. In my world, it could easily replace both the Combo & Turbo Brush Pet. 2) the Turbo Brush seems to be easy to knock off it's mounting, the Crevice Tool & Extension Wand both stay tightly connected until needed. 3) both the Stair Cleaning Tool; & the upright bar are about 15" wide, wishing that the Stair Cleaning Tool was maybe 10" so that I could use it to clean under & around narrower spaces - think Bathrooms and Closets! Overall, very pleased with the purchases.

Bissell Liftoff

By mike59 from Hawthorne, FL 32640, USA on 01/13/2013

I have used this vacuum in my cleaning business for 10 yrs. It has been the best overall vacuum I have yet to use. In my business no vacuum can last more than a year regardless of how much it cost. I like the convenience of two machines in one. The only things which could be improved is the cord wrap (sometimes it will not stay up) and the height adjustment.

Really good machine

By Cat123 from Greeley Hill, California 95311, USA on 01/08/2013

This machine is great! My favorite feature is the ability to clean all the different elements of the machine without having to have 3 hands or be Houdini. So many machines out there now don't give you the ability to clean the machine. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is the carpet level feature. It seems they've set the carpet levels too high. I have standard cut loop wall-to-wall carpeting and yet I have to set it at the second to the lowest carpet level. Otherwise, really happy with this product. Especially love the pet hair attachment, which I use to clean the dog pillows. This is the only pet hair attachment I've seen that is logically rubber flippers instead of a brush. The last vacuum I had with a pet hair attachment I ended up throwing the attachment away because the brush couldn't be cleaned of the dog hair, which made it useless. This Bissell designer used their noggin in making rubber flippers, which work just as well, yet don't clog up with dog hair. Cudos to you also for making the attachments go INSIDE the hose. The old style of OUTSIDE the hose ended up with most attachments getting caught on something and falling off (usually under the couch where I couldn't reach it). This is just an extremely well-designed vacuum and the lift-off feature is muchly appreciated. Would definitely buy again (and probably will).

Works great and has easy maintenance

By dahdee from riverton, nj on 01/05/2013

I purchased this vacuum 3 years ago, when our household increased to include 4 cats and a dog, in addition to two children. My old vacuum just wasn't up to the task of all the pet hair. I went out to buy a new vacuum, and the salesman recommended this one rather than the more expensive brand I initially thought I would purchase. He said that not only was it great at picking up pet hair, but it was rarely brought in for repairs. After using it for 3 years, I love it. The long cord reaches several rooms from one outlet. The detachable canister is great for cleaning the stairs...they are vacuumed much more often now! The pet eraser that comes with it does a really good job. The only cons are that it doesn't come with the stair tool, so I've been using the pet eraser, which then becomes clogged very quickly and needs a lot of cleaning out. (I just ordered the stair tool...should help a bit.) For me the worst part is the hose. I think it's stiff and hard to work with and doesn't reach very far, so the canister is always in danger of falling down. All in all, it's a great vacuum that does an amazing job. I just empty out the dirt after doing each room, and when it hums a higher pitch, I know to clean out the rest of it. It's also easy to push and fairly light weight, so it's easy to carry up and down the stairs, in either one piece or two! I've recommended this vacuum to all my friends with pets.

This is a very user friendly vaccum.

By Holden 10 from Park Forest, IL, USA on 01/03/2013

I am extremely pleased with this vaccum. We have 4 cats and are amazed at what the suction is pulling out of our carpets. The weight is just right not being too heavy or light, not having to push which helps with my back. It is very easy to clean the 3 containers collecting the dirt, and all attachments are right where you need them. My husband had no problems obtaining extra supplies with a quick delivery.

Finally, a vacuum that works for me!

By Barbwire47 from Ashcroft, BC, Canada on 12/26/2012

I have had my Lift-Off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum for about 3 weeks now and it is great. I also purchased the Pet Turbo Brush - it came with Pat Turbo Eraser. I still want to purchase the floor tool & pet grooming kit. It works great in both RV & truck. It is a bit on the heavy side & the hose could be about 1ft. longer but all in all it is a good vacuum that did not break the bank. Also the Bissell site is very helpful & easy to maneuver around.

Lift-Off MC Pet Vac

By WagSilD from Undisclosed on 12/19/2012

On first use I was shocked at the amount of fine dirt picked up by the vac. The ability to raise and lower the level of the brush to meet carpeting type or just bare floor is an added plus. I was drawn to this model for the detachable canister which has worked great and makes the stair job much easier and more safe. I just saw the suggestion to add another wand to extend the reach and I'm going to try that out. The cord is extra long. Cleaning out the cup is a breeze. Just need to make sure you clean the cyclone above it every once in a while as well. I also just recently cleaned the main brush and it was so simple to get to and reassemble.

Read your book! There is a 2nd part to clean out you won't know about without reading your book!

By Shannalee29 from Verona, NY 13478, USA on 12/15/2012

We have a German Shepherd and long haired cat at our house. We got this vacuum and I was amazed at the suction. The handheld piece for furniture I also used on the stair carpeting. It was amazing! However, after 3 months the handheld piece would barely rotate and the suction was next to nothing. I decided to read the book (didn't think I would have to when it came to a vacuum cleaner). I AM SO GLAD I DID! . When you remove the part to empty the dirt, there is a piece above that you can unscrew. We took ours out and the holes were all plugged. We cleaned that all off and the vacuum was back to brand new. I have never seen another vacuum like this where you could get into the inner workings to completely clean it out. Amazing Bissell! Thank you! Now that we know where this part is we clean that out every other time we vacuum!

Second "Lift-Off" vacuum family

By Sandy from Mocksville, NC 27028, USA on 12/15/2012

I recently purchased the "Lift Off" vacuum and I am very pleased. I still have the "original" Bissell lift off purchased 5 years ago which is still working. That is why I purchased this one. I am even more pleased with the new one. It has great suction power, does not scratch my hardwood floors and changes easily between hardwood floors and carpet. I also like the new feature where you do not have the other filter above the "empty" cup. The price was right and pleased that I could put it together easily.

Great value!

By Greg from Colorado Springs, CO, USA on 12/05/2012

We just received our vacuum and used it once and so far it works well at picking up my dogs hair which is very long even for a Golden Retriever mix. It also has very good suction for an upright. It has a heavy/solid feel to it which I wanted. This is our first bagless vac and the dirt cup is easy to deal with. I also just ordered the ShedAway Pet Grooming attachment with a built-in curry comb to deal with his hair so we will see how that helps.

Great suction and features

By Berry 107 from WA on 11/01/2012

Bissell vaccums have good suction. I have an old one and the suction still works. I decided to buy this one because of the new feature "Lift-Off" which is very handy for vaccuming my car. Dog hair in the carpet is not a problem. You can see how much dog hair is picked up by the vac, hair that you can't even see on the carpet. This vac is perfect for all our needs.

Not perfect but does a good job!

By Lorna from AZ on 11/01/2012

I've had my lift-off for about 6 months. I'm very happy with the strength of the suction and the ease of cleaning. I also love that if I vacuum up an important toy, I can get it back without sifting through a vacuum bag! The lift-off capability is the best! I purchased the bare floor tool, and it's so easy to carry the canister around as I vacuum all of my bare floors. The things that keep this vacuum from being 5 stars are the pet turbo brush and the length of the extension wand. The turbo brush only spins if there is absolutely no reduction in suction. So once some of the dog hair gets onto the filter, it doesn't operate anymore. I think the company would have been better off including the pet contour tool instead. The extension wand is too short when used with the bare floor attachment. I am only five foot seven, but I have to either bend forward or hold the wand by the hose at very top to walk comfortably and vacuum my bare floors. Despite these inconveniences, I would recommend this vacuum. The lift-off is very versatile and gets my carpets and bare floors very clean!

By Sweeper from Undisclosed on 10/24/2012

I have had this sweeper for about 2 years. It has been great and pick up everything. Only now it is starting to blow dirt everywhere. I have cleaned it all out and cleaned all filters. However it still blows out the back very bad. I can see the latch door for the back filter actually pulling apart some.

Very Powerful

By Jackass1 from Monmouth, IL 61462, USA on 10/16/2012

Used this new vacum right behind our other more expensive vacum and picked up so much stuff from the carpet It leaves us wondering how the other vacum could miss so much. We thought we had done a very good job of vacuming with our old vacum, so we ran it over the carpet sseveral times. Never again will we think just because it has a name that is supposed to be top of the line and expensive to be good. This Bissell put it to shame. From now on if it doesn't say Bissell, we won't buy it.

Not so good

By Golden girl from Colorado on 10/02/2012

We bought this vacuum about 2 years ago for our house cleaner. She is so sweet, never complained. Unfortunately now we do not have her any longer I have to vacuum. Not only is it heavy but there is so much dirt, dust and hair after vacuuming, it just seems to blow everywhere. Also, the attachment for stairs and furniture does not have any suctions and the roller does not roll :(

Cheaply made

By R.M.H. from Ohio on 09/17/2012

I purchased this vacuum about 2 years ago and within 2 months it gave off a burning odor. Here the roll brush had frozen and would NOT rotate. My husband was able to fix it eventually. The top hook that holds the cord has also broken. The most recent thing that broke was the internal clip or latch that releases the handle so that the vacuum will become engaged rather than in the upright position. It has broken and now the vacuum easily tips over. I do regret purchasing this vacuum. It seems cheaply made. However, if you're looking for sucking power, it does suck up well.

Best Vacuum Ever!

By aw from Baudette, MN on 09/01/2012

I have always bought cheaper vacuums but my parents bought me this one for Christmas a few years ago because we got a yellow lab. This vacuum is my life saver and still works as good as I got it almost 2 years ago! I was so impressed with it that my parents and my in-laws each went out and bought the exact same one because they both have a yellow lab too. This vacuum was way above my expectations. I just ordered a Bissell Carpet Cleaner for Pets and I can't wait to get it because I am sure the quality will be just what I expect.

Weird Noises

By payseursa from Gastonia, NC on 08/18/2012

I've had my vacuum for over 7 months and have been extremely happy with it, especially since I have 2 dogs. However, about a month ago, my cleaner has been making some very weird and loud noises. The cleaner sounds like it's about to explode. The sound is really beginning to worry me. I've cleaned the filters and everything. Hasn't helped. I just don't know what to do. This may just be an isolated incident, but it's annoying to know that I haven't gotten my money's worth.

The pet vac

By L257 from The Dalles on 08/11/2012

The vac has good suction, but it works like a dog hair magnet, so I have to clean the front and the canister when I am done. As well the hair gets twisted in the very top around the yellow section instead of staying in the tank. It is an average vac.

I Love It!

By puzzlefan from Marietta, GA on 07/28/2012

We bought our Bissell 3 months ago. We owned a major brand for years, and intended to stick with that brand, but when we got to the store we found this vacuum sturdier and more "user friendly" than any of the other brands! I had never used a bagless vacuum, and was concerned about the dust, but that hasn't been a problem at all. The tools are incredibly easy to use and replace, as is the canister. I love the pet hair tool. It is so powerfull it gets all the stubborn hair off my cat "tree" and I also use it as a mini-brush for hard to reach places. The buttons are even in the perfect place! My house is truly cleaner because using this machine and all its tools is so easy! The only complaint I have is that the two brush tools tend to fall off easily, but this is such a great machine it doesn't bother me. The machine is a little heavier than the competitors, but I don't mind because it feels like it is built to last more than a year, and it is so powerful it is somewhat self propelled, making it easier to push. Yep, I love this vacuum.

Thrilled With My New Bissell

By Petlover from Sonoma, CA 95476, USA on 07/11/2012

I had a basic Bissell upright for years. It finally gave out, and I went shopping. I tried a couple other brands, but I much prefer Bissell. My other Bissell was very basic. Then I bought the Lift-Off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum, and the second I turned it on, I was amazed. It pulled me instead of me pushing it. I love everything about it. It glides beautifully, so easy to clean, and I like seeing all it is picking up. And it has just the right weight. I feel like it's substantial. It's excellent with my shag carpeting. The lift-off unit is wonderful. It really is like two vacuums in one. The pet attachment picks up everything, and it's totally portable. And everything fits into place so easily yet so securely. I'm very happy with it. And, I love the candy apple red color. It's a 'stand-out.'

pros: - not very heavy - lift off feature is nice to haul but might be better with the shoulder strap so it does not tip over, do not understand why this is not included for safety (has to be purchased separately) - great at removing pet hair and seems good at picking up the dirt the animals bring in too - has lots of parts which can be removed and cleaned, this is great to help any pet smell buildup, love this feature - price vs utility is great! - love the ability to turn off the brush for hard floors, adjustable height brush is nice cons: - the hose attaches at the top of machine so that when you use it for attachments, it tips over very easily... does the same when you use the lift off portion. - does not hold very much debris in the 'bin' and it fills up towards the back so that you can not tell how full it is to dump

Not for a long time

By tomie from Elk Grove, CA, USA on 06/28/2012

I have bought two life-off vacuum, but both of them can not work well after one year. After one year, they have a same problem that they would auto shut down when I used about three minutes, even though I replaced filters.

Awesome Vacuum!

By ninnie2003 from Stanton, NE , USA on 06/28/2012

I got my first Bissell lift-off almost 10 years ago. Just last year I had to replace the belt due to too much hair build up. We got a cocker spaniel puppy in March and he shed very little. Decided to buy this pet vacuum since the one I have at home isn't a pet one. We got it within a week of ordering. It was just as easy as my other one to put together, has just one extra attachment then the old one I have, and has so much sucking power. I vacuumed with my old one a day before we got this one. Immediately I put this one together and vacuumed. I was shocked by how much my old vacuum missed and this one picked up! I still have my old one, we got rid of the off brand we used at work and now use my old one. I have never been disappointed with Bissell and will continue to buy their vacuums. You get the same, if not better quality and longevity of a vacuum as you would if you spent upwards of $600 on a different brand. Bissell is by far my vacuum of choice and will always be. If my old one is still going after 10 years and only having to replace a belt, I can only imagine how long this one will last!!!

Fliters

By missyme from Janesville,WI on 06/11/2012

I haven't had this vacuum for even a year and already the post-motor filter doesn't work.Everytime i vacuum the dust blows out from the back all over.The cup doesn't fit tight either so dirt blows up all over the vacuum into the motor.Very disappointed in this product for what it cost it should work better.

Happy overall

By SuzanneC. from Santa Cruz, CA, USA on 06/04/2012

We've had a Bissell model 3760 (very similar to the pet vacuum you show here) for about two years or so. We vacuum every week, sometimes twice a week, and own a black lab (heavy shedder) and a pomeranian. We have a mix of low pile carpet, area rugs, and laminate floors over about 1500 square feet of home. We clean the dirt cup every time and the filters as needed. The reason I do not give the vacuum five stars is that we are pretty easy on our machines, and it is starting to come apart at the plastic join up near the "grab and go" button - not on the canister body, but near where the "power paw" sits on the handle. Additionally, I believe the stretchy suction tool could be more robust... ours is rather kinked and we have been very easy with it. Overall I think we will be repurchasing this product as we are happy with the price, power, features, etc. A big bonus is not having to purchase bags, especially with the amount of dog hair we vacuum up every week! Please consider the upgrades as mentioned. Thank you.

should have gotten a dyson

By sarah82 from Leesburg, VA on 05/31/2012

After only a couple months of use my pet hair tool stopped working. The canister gets clogged very fast on little hair and then I have to remove parts to unclog it all. I should have paid a little extra and gotten the dyson. Do not get this vacuum if your dog sheds a lot.

By Maggie from Arkansas on 05/25/2012

This Bissell vacuum is great value for the price.It is as good as any priced 2 -3x times higher; I know because I have tried a few of them. I was amazed within the 1st few minutes of use how much dog hair it picked up. Buy it with confidence!

AMAZING!

By Margie from Hot Springs, AR on 05/21/2012

I usually use a Rainbow but as I am getting older I was looking for something lightweight & easier to use without having to empty the water afterwards, this Bissell works as well ,maybe even better? I was surprised at the amount of pet hair it picked up,very quickly. I haven't used the attachments yet but I like the variety, and it is not as noisy as my other vacuum.The price is very favorable.

Great Vacuum

By Hummingbirds49 from Cedar Springs, MI 49319, USA on 05/21/2012

This is the best vacuum I have had in years. I was so surprised with how much dirt and pet hair it picked up. I also like the canister because I can get into smaller areas to vacuum. I would recommend it to my family and friends when looking for a vacuum.

Our Lift-Off gets the job done

By Lee from Rolla, MO on 05/20/2012

We have 4 four footed family members: an 85 pound Golden-Doodle, a 23 pound Jack Russell, a 14 pound domestic short hair indoor-outdoor cat, and a 12 pound long hair indoor cat. To stay ahead of the the tracked in dust/dirt and the hair from the last 3 (the Golden-Doodle contributes very little hair but the big feet bring in the very fine dirt), we vacuum 3 times a week and sometime four. Our lift off really does the job it was intended to do.

Love my new Vac!

By Happy in Chicago from Chicago, IL on 05/18/2012

I just got my new Lift -Off multi pet vacuum yesterday and could not wait to get it out of the box. I was ready to have problems putting it together from some of the reviews I read but that was not the case. Really didn't even have to look at the manuel. Two screws and everything else just clicks into place. The first thing I did was my hardwood floors and then took off the canister and did my carpeted stairs. What a pleasure. My old canister vacuum did not have a stair attachment, the cord was not long enough as my stair case is a U shape with two landings. I would have to do them in sections. First the top, plugged in upstairs and then carry everything down and re-plug in downstairs and work my way back up. Hated the stairs. Now with my new vacuum the cord is long enough that I can vacuum part of the hall on the second floor. My stairs will be vacuum much more now. Also love having all the tools on board. My last canister I had to change the hose from carpet to hard surface also had to go and get attachments when I needed them. If it's that much work your not always going to do the best job. The Crevice tool is long and narrow which is great for getting into the lint trap in the dryer. Also like the telescoping extension wand, make it whatever size you need. So looking forward to vacuum everything. The other nice feature is the dirt that I got up was the real fine stuff, that you see under your carpet when you are replacing it. The suction is great! Love my Vac!

Shocked!!

By Ken from Rialto, CA on 05/12/2012

My vacuum recently quit on me so I searched online for a replacement and Bissell had a vacuum that specialized in removing pet hair. For the price I couldn't beat it. When it arrived I started vacuuming and to my utter shock it removed hair like no other vacuum I have ever used. The dirt collector just kept on filling up over and over and I had just vacuumed the day before with my old vacuum. To say this vacuum is a miracle would be an understatement. I know now where to go to purchase my carpet shampooer.

nice vacuum

By Goose from Middletown, OH, USA on 05/11/2012

This vacuum works very well. Easy to assemble. The empting cup needs improvement, dog hair & dirt gets stuck in the upper part and falls all over the place when trying to dump it. So then you have to dust off the vacuum and sweep up the mess.

big mare

By Big Mare from PA on 05/03/2012

This replaces one I had for several years and have given to my son who was looking for a cleaner but funds were limited. I really like the pet hair feature which was not on my old one. I would recommend this to anyone who likes an upright cleaner, but occasionally needs to clean stairs or overhead.

The BEST vacuum in the world for Pets!!!!!

By Maria B. from Walnut Creek, CA, USA on 05/03/2012

I had gotten my Lift-off vacuum over 2 years ago, and I must say, I'm still impressed. Easy to move around, love the detatchable feature, the variety of attachments involved. Not good at really describing products, but I will say that if you have pets, this vacuum is the one for you! I'm torn how to rate the turbo pet brush. Overall, the brush works great. Just sucks the hair away after it's been combed off with the rubber fingers on the bottom of the brush. However sometimes the hair turns into this long string, and tangles up in the rotating part of the inner brush where the silver screw is and makes the comb stop. I know you are not suppose to open products, but I had to open it up to clean it out. The little sucker just would not turn unless I did this, Very tempermental little thing! I just hope I put the brush back together correctly. To hopefully prevent the strong of hair that I was getting, make sure you clean the rubber fingers frequently, just pick off the hair with your finger. I hope this will help. Otherwise, I'm not sure how else this issue could be prevented. Otherwise, this vacuum is awesome!

Quality Built

This machine has surpassed my expectations. With ease of handling and visual monitoring of dirt extracted from floors,it will be a pleasure to operate. I like the fact it has plenty of power, and moves over floors with little or no pushing. This is a quality machine. Keep doing what your doing.

Just As Advertised

By kat from Ashland, WI, USA on 04/17/2012

We have a long-haired dog who is really shedding. We purchased this product, after much online comparison shopping, and it's as good as it was advertised to be. We're very happy with it. Good suction that pulls that hair right out of the upholstery much better than our old machine. Good product and we will recommend it.

No more back aches

By MrsGvii7 from Pa on 04/15/2012

Love the removal canister stairs are cleaned with ease and no bending. The vacuum suction is the best I've ever worked with. I haven't had any problems removing tools. I love this vacuum and it clean's my rug's so well that even my dog's have found their way back on to the carpets. My husband and I have gone barefoot in the house and can tell a huge different's in our rugs. He also loves the fact that this vacuum also works for our hardwood floor so no more extra vacuum's. There are many other types of vacuum's out there. But for me and my three dog's, well we are Bissell threw and true. I won't own anything else but Bissell and for anyone that has pet's I highly recommend this vacuum.

House of dogs

By Foster from Undisclosed on 04/05/2012

I like this vacuum, it does exactly what it is suppose to. I love being able to clean up the pet hair in less time than I did before. We have 2 dogs of our own and we foster, so we really need something that cleans up the hair. We use it on the carpet and on the kitchen floor. Only draw back is that the hose on the back does not seem to stay in the clip that is provided. It needs to be a little taller. This is really a big pet peeve of my husbands.

By Treads from Austin, TX, USA on 04/02/2012

My daughter cleans several houses to supplement her income while attending college. She had borrowed my vac since it has so many features that makes her cleaning time faster. Now she is the proud owner of her own machine, and we just purchased one for my sister that lives in a small town since she had heard so many rave reviews from us! We all especially appreciate the dust and disbris filters that are so much easier to clean than most.

It cleans better than the Hover that died on me and is lighter. The Hoover also had much belt problems from the word go. I love the removable canister. It works better on my carpets than the Hoover did when I first bought it. The hose is a bit hard to take out of the vacuum to attach the tools. That could be better. All in all so far I like it.

Only had the Lift-Off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum 1 month since my old vac died. Have 1 medium long haired cat that sheds constantly and he loves to roll outside in the grass and dirt which comes inside with him. Really like the lift-off canister to do stairs and get into smaller spaces in the bathroom. Plan to order the strap to make it easier to carry. No longer wearing my cats hair after sitting on furniture as he ownes and has to get on every chair in in the house and the bed as well. So far, no complaints.

Bissell Vacuum - good for removing pet hair from sofa

By Cleansweep from Cincinnati, OH on 03/22/2012

The handy detachable feature allow me to vacuum the stairs without straining my back like my other vacuum. I don't think it has the power that some other vacuums do but some of the really nice features are the filters that prevent odor when sweeping, and I have a waffle textured fabric on my sofa and it removes the pet hair from the sofa better than anything else I've tried. I am very pleased with my new vacuum.

Cleans better than I expected!

By Life time cat owner from Taunton, MA on 03/19/2012

The Bissell Lift-off multi cyclonic pet vacuum cleans pet hair off my cat pet beds and furniture much better and quicker than my previous Bissell vacuum, The Pet Hair Eraser. The Lift-Off Multi Vacuum is much quieter while running, cleans my carpet better, makes my berber carpet look nicer by lifting the carpet fibers up to look new, has great suction, moves easily while vacuuming, has a good length of cord, 30', roller brush can be turned on or off and always turns off when you upright the vacuum. My previous vacuum didn't do that and it saves the carpet and cleans my hardwood floors better. The pet TurboEraser attachment that comes with this vacuum is much better than the Pet TurboBrush attachment I used to have. I also bought the Pet Contour Tool attachment because I had one before and it cleans pet hair off my micro-suade couch better than the other pet hair attachment I mentioned. Only negative is that my vacuum came with the upper hose clip broken in shipping. I didn't return it because I thought it was minor and wasn't an issue while vacuuming. I recommend this vacuum! I haven't had to lift off the vacuum from it's frame yet but like that option! Easy to put together and easy to empty the dirt cup and secondary cyclone.

Lift-Off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum

By Connie from Knoxville TN on 03/16/2012

Bought This Lift-Off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum about 3 weeks ago, Boy what a different in my carpets, it pulled Dog hair out of the carpets you could not even see, I have two large dogs, and my carpes are cleaner, I have to vacuum daily and it has not failed me yet, I had a Oreck XL that I used before and I ran a test to see how the Lift off worked, I ran the Oreck over the carpets for about 10mins then I ran the Lift Off and it pulled more hair out of the carpets and filled the canister. Not sure How I went with out this Vacuum.

Good Suction

By Jayna from Saskatoon, SK, Canada on 03/13/2012

This is the first Bissell I've ever had. It was easy to assemble and I like the many height adjustments. I have a shag area rug that I have always had problems cleaning in the past, but the Bissell sucked up a lot of dirt that had fallen down into the shag that my previous vacuum could never get. The only complaint I have about it so far is that for an upright vacuum, it's heavier than I expected. It's difficult to carry the entire thing up and down stairs. I was very impressed at all the dirt that showed up in the canister the first time I used it. It definitely works better than the last brand that I had.

Phenomenal!!

By HappyHouseCleaner52 from Houston, TX, USA on 03/12/2012

I do house cleaning for various homes and needed a multi-functional vacuum. The Bissell Lift Off Multi Cyclonic vacuum is AWESOME! It has everything anyone could want! It is so easy and versatile to use. The lift off canister makes vacuuming stairs, furniture, curtains and under furniture so much easier to do. The Pet Eraser Tool is great for removing pet hair from furniture and curtains without damaging the material. I also purchased the Pet Brush for stairs. It works great! I love the fact that there is an on/off switch for the rollers, it makes transitioning from carpet to bare floors (and vise versa) much easier. Putting the handle in the upright position also automatically turns the brushes off so you don't have to worry about burning up the belt if you leave the vacuum on while moving objects out of the way. The furniture tool is great for dusting furniture (saves money on Swiffering or unnecessary polishing), and the crevice tool is great for small areas, getting down along sides and back of furniture cushions, getting along floor boards, etc. Filters are easy to access for cleaning or replacement, and the floor adjustments go from bare floor to high-pile carpet. It truly is the most functional, easy-to-use vacuum I have ever used. I absolutely love it!

Best Vacuum Ever

By Pet Momma from Romulus, MI, USA on 03/11/2012

I love that I can vacuum my stairs with ease! That was the main reason I purchased this model. I have 2 dogs and 3 cats and I collect a lot of hair on stairs. I was finished within minutes, which with my old unit took me forever!! The attachments are awesome! Works great on my tile and hardwood floors.

good, especially for the price

By chuck from mid-Michigan on 03/09/2012

I am happy with this product. I am pleasantly surprised at how well it works for a vacuum in this price range. We have two dogs one of whom sheds a lot. We have berber carpet, area rugs, both high and low nap and bare floors. The vacuum works well on all of these surfaces. We also have a hand-held pet eraser that we use on beds and furniture and it works well too. I got that one as a Christmas gift and using it prompted me to buy the Lift-Off model.

Love it!

By JAH from Canal Winchester, OH, USA on 03/08/2012

I really should have bought this sooner! I can't believe the dirt and dust that it picks up. It is so wonderful to use on the stairs. No more having to hold the upright vacuum while trying to clean the stairs. I bought the extra attachment for bare floors and it works wonders on my tile. It doesn't "loose suction" when the attachments are attached. I have never had a vacuum where the attachments worked so well- no matter how much I paid for the vacuum. Being able to "lift off" the vacuum and use it on the stairs and in my bathroom with the attachments has made cleaning so much easier at my house. When using as an upright vaccuum it cleans right up to my base boards. I am considering buying other lift off products from Bissell.

Poor choice

By Ann737 from Denver, CO on 03/07/2012

I read the reviews on this vacuum before buying and was impressed by what I read however I must have gotten the lemon. I vacuum every day and only have one large dog and one toy dog. Vacuum does not pick up the dog hair on our area rug without going over and over it and even then there is still hair on the rug. Not happy with the vacuum on the carpeted areas of our home either as it doesn't pick up on the first pass. The dirt collects in only one area of the canister so it has be emptied every time I use it. The only positive thing regarding this vacuum is the way it works on the wood floors. Would not recommend this product to anyone!

High Pile Frieze

By Happy Cleaner from Texas on 02/13/2012

This vacuum was able to pick up baking powder (Test Dirt) out of my high pile frieze carpet with no problem and with the brush off. Turned the brush off so it would not damage the fibers. Slow passes allowed me to get the powder out from the base of the carpet. The vacuum also glides through high pile frieze on the bare floor setting. My carpet is Shaw Anso Nylon. I recommend this for the price and functionality.

So far, so good.

By KatieS from Undisclosed on 02/08/2012

I am very happy with my purchase so far. We are military and move around a lot. This is our 5th house and the 1st with carpet. I've always had a cheap vacuum, just for area rugs. I've been using it on our carpeted bedrooms and found that the suction was horrible on it. I finally broke down and decided to spend extra money on a good vacuum. After vacuuming with it one time, the canister was filled with dust and dirt. I couldn't believe how much this thing picked up. I love it! My floors look so much better with this vacuum. I love the detachable canister. Using the hand tools is so much easier with it. My only complaint is that the hose isn't the easiest to disconnect when I want to use the tools. Other than that, I have no problems with mine.

Not up to my expectation

By M & J from Las Vegas, NV, USA on 02/05/2012

We bought this vacuum because we have 3 dogs and 1 cat. We read some of the reviews and thought it would be good for our home. Claims to be great for homes with pets...sure maybe homes with pets that don't actually shed! This is the worst vacuum we have ever had. It clogs constantly and the hair and dirt gets stuck up in the filter and makes such a mess when we empty it. We have had many Bissell products and have been very happy with them so we were surprised that this one was so awful. Maybe we got one that does not function properly.

my old vacuum took forever to get the hair out of the rugs, and i had to empty the canister after each room(and i only have area rugs downstairs). with this i can do downstairs with one pass, even with the fur and crumbs from the treats. i love that i can get all the fur off the rugs with one or two passes instead of at least eight. my dogs like it better too because i am vacuuming for half the time and they hate the vacuum.

Great for carpeting, poor for hard surfaces.

By petlover from Minnesota on 02/03/2012

I do like the performance on carpeting very much also, it does a great job on the dog hair, also I like the ease of seperation for when I have to clean the stairs. How ever, I am truly disappointed at the way it just blows everything around on hard surfaces, such as tiled floors, not a good scenario. Question, why do you not have a category for carpets and hard surfaces? this in almost every household!

Great Vacuum Cleaner

By Sunseeker1 from Charlotte, NC on 02/02/2012

I didn't realize that my old vacuum cleaner was not doing a good cleaning job any more until we purchased our new Bissell Lift-off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum. The first time I used it, the room smelled so clean and fresh and the carpet looked amazingly clean. I couldn't believe all of the dust, dirt and pet hair this vacuum picked up off the carpet. I am very pleased and would definitely recommend this vacuum to any one that is in the market for buying a new vacuum cleaner. I have had this vacuum cleaner for about 3 months now and it is doing a fantastic job!

Highly recommend this vacuum!!!!!!!

By Gigi from Quartz Hill, CA, USA on 02/01/2012

I love this vacuum! It is very easy to operate, especially with the lift off canister, it makes it easy to navigate. It really picks up all the dirt and grime. The filters are easy to clean and are sturdy. I actually own two of these stlyes, one for my house and one that I use for my Dad's house. I strongly recommend this product, So WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR????????

Change the powered furniture attachment.

By Taco from Covington, KY, USA on 02/01/2012

The vacuum works well, the removable canister is great. The furniture attachment worked great on the first vacuum I had. After around a year, the contact points where the fan spins wore out and became oval. It was noisy and eventually stopped working and was not covered under the warranty. I took it back to the store and got another one. The attachment wouldn't work brand new out of the box, so I took it back and got another one. This one seems to work fine for now, but I'm afraid it will eventually wear out, too. You need to make the attachments with bearing so the plastic won't wear out. Also, other companies use latches so you can easily take tht tool apart to clean it, yours uses screws in plastic anchors, this is not only hard to clean but will lead to cross threading, cracking, or stripped screw holes.

Good So Far...

By Impressed So Far from Undisclosed on 02/01/2012

Have had it for about a month, and it is performing well so far. Not too much noise, good suction, adaptable, easy to use options and not lots of lines on the carpet. My guess is that durability will be the ultimate question. But so far it's operating as advertised!

This vacuum is the top of the line for me!

By Big red from Pueblo, CO, USA on 02/01/2012

I thought I had a really good vacuum until my husband ordered the bissell multi-cyclonic pet vacuum. Now I know that I have the best vacuum as it just keeps picking-up all of the dust,pethair,and any thing on the carpet. The only bad part is the dirt container is not big enough to do even one room without emptying it 3 to 4 times.

Great product

By revdee3 from Delaware, USA on 01/31/2012

We have used this machine for many years. We replaced our old one recently due to the motor going out after years of use. We like this machine because you can easily buy parts, filters, etc and do the repairs yourself at home. We purchased a replacement machine last summer. It stopped working after 6 months. We were able to get a new one shipped at no cost to us from the manufacturer. It works very well. We have 5 cats and 2 dogs and this is great for cleaning up pet hair. I like the ability to use the lift off to clean wood floors and stairs. I bought an extra bare floor part over the internet.

By Jenny from Michigan, USA on 01/31/2012

I love my new Multi-Cyclonic Pet Vacuum. It is so easy to use and it really sweeps up the pet hair. I like the lift off canister also, I find it nice to have when doing hard to reach areas while vacuuming. I have no complaints about my new Bissell.

This vacuum is fantastic!

By MA from Darlington, PA on 01/31/2012

This vacuum is fantastic! It does an excellent job of picking up dog and cat hair. I especially like being able to wash the tank portion. By washing, you eliminate that horrible "doggie" smell. The removable canister is helpful when you want to get that hair out of the car! I bought one for my daughter first then haad to get one for myself. I also have a Bissell "Healthy Home" but I like this one soooo much better.

lOVE THE LIFT OFF FEATURE

By Kandi from Sunbury,Ohio on 01/31/2012

While I love many things about this vacuum,I am still disappointed in the way it cleans stairs, I have a very dense carpet and even after purchasing the additional stair tool it does not have enough power to get all the dirt and lint off the stairs. I just wish someone would make a machine to tackle that issue.

Pet Vacuum and Carpet Steamer

By PetLady41 from Cape Coral, Florida on 01/31/2012

I recently purchased the multi-cyclonic pet vacuum. I have a lot of animals and they do "deposit" a lot of fur. I had purchased a very expensive vacuum several years ago, but when it came time to shampoo my carpets, I was amazed at how much fur I picked up. I called Bissell to find out which vacuum had the best pick up and a very helpful lady turned me towards the pet vacuum. I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed the results this machine makes. I literally have to empty the canister after vacuuming each room!!! It is so easy to manuever and my vacuuming time is cut in half. I had also purchased a Bisssell rug cleaner - I had used a Hoover for years - and found it so much better. The only drawback and it is minor, the suction pulling the water from the carpet could be stronger. I don't mind waiting the extra time for the carpets to dry as the results are so much better.

Very pleased with this product.

By doerther from Frankfort, KY on 01/31/2012

I am pleased with my vacuum. It does an excellent job of cleaning my carpets. However, I am disappointed with the holder for the turbo attachment. It will not keep the attachment in place while using the machine. I had to tie the attachment to the handle when not using it. You may want to consider a velco strip that could hold the attachment in place when not in use.

I absolutley love this vacuum !

By josephat from Philadelphia, PA, USA on 01/31/2012

I purchased my vacuum ( the Lift-Off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum ) over a year ago and was extremely impressed from the start. Nice wide path, plenty of suction and I was most impressed with the fact that the Beater Bar, never gets clogged up with hair. I have a dog that sheds profusely. The ShedAway Pet Grooming Attachment was well worth the investment as it reduces the anount of hair on the floor. In addition, the Lift Off feature is invaluable. Being able to detatch the canister from the vacuum base for easy use on stairs & upolstery makes it so easy to get the job done quickly and efficiently.

Excellent vacuum

By Tina from Oklahoma City, OK, USA on 01/31/2012

Actually got up so much pet hair the first 3 times I used it, I had to remove the beater brush and unclog the hose. I haven't had to do that since. Works very well. Haven't lost suction. Wish I had this vacuum years ago when we first got our dogs! Love this machine. House smells so much better!

LIft Off has good pickup

By lw46 from Maynard MA on 01/31/2012

I was amazed at how well the vacuum picked up all the fur my cats leave on the rugs. The rugs look like new again! It was a terrific replacement for my old vacuum cleaner, purchased pre-cats. Even at 22 lbs the machine is easy to lift up & down stairs, or can be detached into two parts for easier carrying. The one thing I find is it's good to bring a bag with you to empty the container regularly. The drive belt broke, but it was easily ordered at a good price from Bissell and easy to replace in the machine. This machine is a good value for the price.

Cleaning detaching canister a dream, is much better that the vacuum I used to have...

By marie66 from Medina, OH 44256, USA on 01/31/2012

The pet vacuum works very well with my pet, who is shy of vacuum cleaners, she just lays down and I can clean her coat, which, is very thick since she's a Samoyed. I love the way the canister (and the upper canister) can be cleaned with ease and returned to it's place. The separation of the canister and the floor stick is very easy and cleaning the steps are a breeze now, I don't have to lug a 20# vacuum up and down the stairs.

Amazing!!!!!

By lori817 from Monroe Ohio on 01/31/2012

This is the best vacuum I have ever owned and I have owned many over the years. The first time I used it I had to call my best friend and tell her about it. The suction was incredible and I have 2 dogs and a cat and so I need a vacuum that will keep up with the shedding. My house felt so clean and I stopped the sneezing that I usually found happened when I was cleaning. It makes stairs alot easier as well and I hate stairs....lol I really cant say enough, I am just amazed and its easy to clean and maintain. Best vacuum I have ever owned and I would definitely recommend this to anyone that has animals and is in the market, this is the best one out there!!!!

This vacuum does a great job cleaning. The canister is easy to empty, and the filters are easy to clean. I like the detachable canister. I makes cleaning the car and stairs a breeze. I wasn't impressed with the pet tool. It only cooperates and small percentage of the time. The other tool, however, to an outstanding job.

This is a great vacuum cleaner for pet owners

By captnjack from Reading, PA, USA on 01/31/2012

This product is perfect for my home that includes 4 cats and a yellow lab. I was amazed at how much dirt there was in my carpet that my old cleaner obviously was missing. It is easy to use on steps and hard to reach places. The attachment to actually vacuum my dog is great. She loves being "vacuumed" and you can see just how much hair and dirt it picks up with each use because it is bagless. Without spending a fortune, I got a great cleaner.

GREAT PRODUCT DESIGN!

By ccr1957 from Atlantic city, NJ on 01/31/2012

I have two cats and brown microfiber furniture...I really like the pet tool to remove hair from my furniture. Also, I have ceramic tile in kitchen and both bathrooms...the feature of being able to remove the canister and sweep the tiles is great and lighweight. We also have very plush carpeting and the sweeper has seven height settings so that I can adjust it to sweep the thicker carpeting. That was the first reason I bought it. The only negative I can say is that it is a little heavy. But overall a great product.

Features

By Jim from San Antonio, TX on 01/31/2012

I have owned my vacuum for about a month. One of the featurres i like is the fact that I can vacuum any surface with just one unit. The two other featues that are impress me is 1) the lift off canister that can be used in hard to get to places and 2) the on-board tools set that are always available. It is nice to have them at hand and not have to spend time looking for them every time they are needed.

This Bissell sweeper is the best vacuum I have ever owned.

By gailen from Franklin, NC 28734, USA on 01/31/2012

We recently purchased this vacuum and I can't say enough good things about it. We had just cleaned our carpet about 3-4 weeks before we got our Bissell and I was shocked with the amount of dirt and dog hair that we got from a supposed cleaned carpet. I love vacuuming now and enjoy seeing how much dirt I remove and know that we are now living with truely clean and healthy carpets. Thank you so much, my next purchase will be the hard floor vacuum and steamer for my kitchen.

My second one

By Connie11 from Maryland on 01/31/2012

So far I like the machine. I bought one without the lift off portion for the house in Florida and I like it so much that I bought this one for the north house. PROS: The lift off portion is convenient for stairs. I wish it had a shoulder strap, but it still is useful as is. The dirt cup is easy to access and large enough. Good suction. The pet attachment does seem to lift hair off the furniture better than others I have tried. Relatively easy to switch attachments. Cons: The pet nozzel could be wider, (for stairs) but it might not have the suction then. The adjustment for the brush height on the upright portion is clumsy, I like a foot pedal adjustment better. No auto wind cord. ( and it is kind of short) Overall it has good suction, innovative design.

One cat and dog with one dusty old house and it spells BISSELL! It wasn't until I purchased my Bissell Multi-Cyclonic Pet Vacuum that I realized how truly dirty my floors had become. The old vacuum did the job initially, but this new Bissell far exceeds my expectations. If you can say emptying the cannister is fun, well then -- I have a lot of fun. I wholeheartedly recommend this Bissell product.

Very good suction. Have 2 dogs, picks up dog hairs great !

By windyharbor from Wintrhop harbor, IL. on 01/31/2012

Works very well, like the lift off for doing stairs. Have 2 dogs, picks the dog hairs up great! One draw back, it should have come with a filter for the cyclone chamber. It gets very dusty. Would be easier to clean a filter that would slipped around the cone. But still the best for picking up pet hairs.

product does not operate as promised

By suncat from nevada city, CA on 01/25/2012

I am very disappointed in this product. I am a caregiver and my client had purchased this vacuum less than a year ago and it has broken down now twice and this time seems to be its death. I am surprised by the poor engineering ~ the dog fur goes right from the collection canister into the filter area which is quite problematic to empty. I empyt this canister after each use and that is quite the chore. They supposedly designed this for homes with pets. It is a poor design and is a poor product ~ I vacuum plenty and have used a variety of brands. THIS ONE DOES NOT DELIVER ON ITS CLAIMS!!

The pet turbo brush is a disappointment.

By Michele from Buffalo, NY, USA on 01/21/2012

I would not recommend this product if you're buying it for the pet turbo brush. I've owned this for over a year and had nothing put problems with this attachment, actually this in my second as they replaced the first under warranty. You have to keep taking the brush apart so it can be cleaned (which I understand that) but when you put in back together exactly how it came off it will not work as it doesn't spin. I am very DISSATISFIED as this attachment was the main reason I purchased this vacuum cleaner.
