Although I had high hopes of performance, the Bissell PowerForce Helix Bagless Upright Vacuum was not a "best buy." Suction is questionable most times. There is a lot of blow back air, which I do not quite understand. I bought two vacuums at once, so I am twice as disappointed. Personally, I will never buy another Bissell. They are not what they once were. I will try a Shark next. I hope I have better luck...
You get what you pay for. Sure, it vacuums, but not that well. I had to go over the same spots multiple times to get the job done & as fate would have it, when I complained about it, my husband accidentally went out and got another. I thought maybe the 1st one was a fluke, but nope. The second time around, the vacuum was still no good. I recently bought a Shark Navigator freestyle & I couldn't be happier. It cleans my area rug with ease, something this one could never do even with the setting adjusted for the high carpet. Wouldn't recommend.
It's power and price impressed me. Great machine. Unfortunately, we just used it for the first time and the brush stopped rotating. I suspect that the belt broke when the vacuum encountered the end of an area run with tassles. (Not sure tassle is the right word or not.) What this vacuum really needs is an on/off switch for the brush. I thought that was a standard feature these days. I will exchange it for a new unit when they are back in stock at my store.
