Customer Reviews for Bissell Bissell OptiClean Bagged Canister Vacuum, 42Q8

Bissell Bissell OptiClean Bagged Canister Vacuum, 42Q8

The Opticlean Bagged Canister Vacuum is a convenient whole-home cleaning system. It includes Quiet Vacuum Technology that makes for less noise as you clean around your home. Its lightweight, compact design makes it easy to go up and down stairs, especially since the canister has a convenient carrying handle. You can also use the extension wand along with the tools, such as the crevice or combination dusting brush/upholstery tools, to capture dirt and dust from above-floor surfaces. Variable suction control means that you can turn the suction down and even clean upholstery.

Review 1 for Bissell OptiClean Bagged Canister Vacuum, 42Q8

Wonderful vacuum for non-carpet floors

As an independent housecleaner, I have been looking for a vacuum just for the sole purpose of cleaning non-carpeted flooring. I use an Oreck for the carpets. While no product is perfect, I did weigh the pros and cons of the reviews and decided to purchase it. I knew that the hose way too short, which I do hope Bissell will pay attention to customer feedback and improve. I have a sturdy, long hose from another vacuum which fits perfect at the end of the curvy black wand.
Pros:
Excellent suction! 10 stars (if there were!)
The quietest vacuum I've ever owned or have heard. Amazing!! 10 stars
Price was the cheapest anywhere. 10 stars
Happy to see that it came with 5 bags. 10 stars
Cons:
Please Bissell, this is a great vacuum except for that short hose.
Weighing 21 pounds for a bagged canister, I was a little skeptical. It does weigh more than I would like, but then I'm not planning on carrying it a lot.
In summary, while no product is perfect, I am very pleased with my purchase as I believe the pros far out weigh the cons.

Nice vacuum

There are many features this vacuum has that I just love - being bagged is the best of them. I hate cleaning the canister vacuums - I'd always end up dirty and my allergies would flare. Now I don't have that problem at all - the bag is easy to remove and throw away. While some say the bag is small - it is the same size as the one my mother had back in the day. I love the way it doesn't hurt my back to vacuum now - the uprights were killing me. I would have to say the only two things that bother me about this vacuum is there is no power head attachment which would be great for my carpet, and it would have been nice if it was a little higher amp. But overall, I love this vacuum.

Good product.

I like the portability, the variable suction, the cord retraction, and the bag mount. I prefer bagged vacuums as they are much cleaner, but they are hard to find these days. The only thing that seems awkward is the knob to telescope the rod. It seems like it should go the other way.
Happy customer.

Great canister vac

These days its not easy to find a small canister "bagged"vacuum that doesn't have an extra motorized carpet attachment that you don't need. This is a well made, solid product with a long cord, long extending hose and easy to find replacement bags along with a double filtration system. I am completely satisfied with this unit.

Not optimal for plush carpets

The vacuum does a fine job on flooring and low carpeting, but if you have plush carpets, keep in mind that their is no power roller in the head of the vacuum, so it will not do the same job as a vacuum that has that.
