I bought the Bissell Powerforce 12amp vacuum cleaner for my wife, to replace our 15 year old model. We were tired of replacing bags and belts. The new Bissell has more power than we were used to, as it uses a bagless centrifical force mode of suction. The bagless system is really nice!
Edge cleaning and attachments are pretty standard, nothing special there. The machine is designed for carpeted areas, but is adjustable all the way down to a "bare floor" setting, up to high shag-type carpet. Maintenance is easy, as all of the filters are water washable. Now that is a plus in my book! The warranty is a standard 1-year deal, again, nothing special about that.
The best part of this vacuum is the bagless system. If you haven't experienced a bagless vacuum cleaner before, this is really the way to go!
