I bought my Bissell 3 in 1 stick vac in 2004. I needed a small vacuum for sweeping sand from the enterance of my house. At the time I lived in Florida, so of course I spent a ton of time on the beach, and I always had a lot of sand in the enterance of the house.
I paid $20 for this mighty little stick vac. It is easy to empty, and has great suction. About every three months I replace the filter, which are available in two packs for around $4. This little purple stick vac has a floor nozzel and crevice tool and an impressivly long cord of around 16 feet.
The 3 in 1 stick vac is light, it weighs around three pounds. I use mine daily, and I have had it for over 5 years now so I think this was a great deal for a great reliable product. It is easy to disassemble or reassemble, which is probably why I have kept ahold of my Bissell 3 in 1 stick vac despite several long distance moves. I would recommend this product to anyone. The Bissell 3 in 1 stick vac is durable, dependable and affordable.
