Fantastic suction and great value
After reading a lot of positive Reviews, I brought this corded stick cleaner as a temporary tool while my Dyson undergo repairs. Great on vinyl and wooden floor BUT not so good on rugs. I vacuum daily, have been using it for past 4 days, very happy with the performance, the filter managed to collect almost 70% of the dust if one needs to compare this stick cleaner to the Dyson upright cleaner. The Bissell has 2 years limited Warranty - it will be a matter to see if it would lasted that long because the motor gets very hot after 20 minutes that ...requires another 30 minutes to cool down. 28th Jan 2020 update: I reduced the rating from 5 stars to 3 stars today. Overall: Good machine BUT after 5 days usage on polished floor in a 2 bedroom unit, the footplate-blue-plastic tubing split. Bissell was efficient replaced the footplate BUT after serious consideration, I returned the cleaner to Harvey Norman for a full refund. Reason: I cannot be sure the durability of the machine. Though it has great suction.
Far superior to any battery powered unit. If you want a small, powerful, portable vaccuum cleaner, check this one out.
I bought this vaccuum cleaner specifically for use on my boat. Storage space is always an issue, so I was looking for a good battery operated product, but I could not find a battery operated vaccuum cleaner with adequate suction power. Even the astronomically high priced battery powered Dyson machines are not very impressive. While checking out my options at Harvey Norman, I noticed the Bissell Featherweight, mains powered vaccuum which is similar in size to many of the battery powered vaccuums. I was very impressed with the suction which far e...xceeds any battery powered unit. Since I have a 12Vdc to 240Vac inverter on my boat, I don't actually need a battery operated unit. In fact, having a battery in the vaccuum unit has big disadantages, such as needing to charge the battery, limited operating time and limited battery life. The Bissell Featherweight drawers about 33 Amps from the 12V inverter, which is quite acceptable. I am impressed with the simplicity of the design and ease of cleaning the filter. I mainly use it as a hand held vaccuum without the handle extension due to the varied types of surfaces on a boat. I use the small nozzle for crevices and upholstery and the wider surface cleaning attachment for floor and upholstery also. A third attachment that Bissell has not included is a medium sized brush nozzle, which I would find very useful. At $99, it is excellent value.
Purchased in August 2019 at Harvey Norman Belrose for $99.00.
Light to use but powerful in suction
This vacuum is extremely easy to use. My kids were sick of dragging the big vacuum out to do their chores so I bought them this to make their life easier (and mine) and because it's so easy you can just whip it out and vacuum around in 15 mins for a quick tidy up. I like the fact that it's a plug in with no time limit on batteries and recharging etc, we just use a long extension cord to cover the whole house and it's easy as. It's more efficient on hard surfaces than carpet, although not too bad on on carpet and rugs depending on the thickness of the pile. The best thing about this is the price. We paid $88.00 on sale at Harvey Norman which is a small price to pay for a great product!!

Great little vacuum!
Perfect size for my apartment, works great on floorboards and carpet. Very light, easy to manoeuvre and not too loud. Picks up a lot of dust that I can't even see. Love my little bissell.
