When I first bought the Bissell Powerforce Bagless, I was extremely satisfied with its performance. It picked up dog hair off of the carpet really well, probably better than any other vacuum I have ever owned. However, the vacuum always emitted a strange burning smell, even during the very first use.
The Bissell Powerforce is fairly lightweight and comes with an assortment of attachments that are practical to use. This vacuum is also bagless, so it was great for pet hair. I could just empty it out after every use. This vacuum was never good for vacuuming the tile floors in my house, but the attachments worked well for picking up hair and dirt on the tile in hard to reach places.
As great as the Bissell Powerforce was in the beginning, I am now having problems with it after only owning the product for six months. Lately, this vacuum is not picking much up. It seems to be spitting everything that I go over out of the back and it's leaving a trail of pet hair behind.
I am extremely disappointed that this product has lasted such a short time. I realize that pet hair can be hard on a vacuum, but I wouldn't think that a vacuum would start acting up in six months. I liked this product at first, but I don't think I would have bought it if I had to do it over again.
