  • Scatter-Free Technology

Compact and lightweight design

Powerful, full-size suction in a compact and lightweight upright vacuum that weighs just 10 pounds. The size of the Purple Bissell Carpet Cleaner is both a pro and a con.  It is lightweight and easy to carry but it also has a short hose/wand and the dust canister is quite small resulting in the need for frequent emptying.

Compact and lightweight design

It also does not come with HEPA filtration. . Cyclonic technology generates powerful centrifugal forces that separate debris and dander from the fast-flowing air stream and ejects it straight into the dust cup.


On-board storage

Extension tools and attachments store on-board for easier cleaning on stairs, upholstery and more. The Swiffer Sweeper 2-in-1 Mops for Floor Cleaning can also be purchased with this vacuum. The included Febreze filter removes odors and refreshes your home while you clean.

And when you’re all done vacuuming cleaning AeroSwift is easy with the one-touch empty dirt tank that empties with just the touch of a button.


Cyclonic Technology

Cyclonic Technology extends machine performance and helps filters last longer by keeping them cleaner. Furthermore, most buyers approve of the vacuum’s effeciency and suction, and say it cleans pretty well.

Scatter-Free Technology

On the other hand, the vacuum has some criticisms, most of which revolve around the cheap build and poor reliability. The settings range from bare floors to high pile carpet.  If the vacuum becomes difficult to push when cleaning carpet you should move the height setting towards high pile carpet – this will lift the nozzle higher.

It has very powerful suction and it really does only require one pass. No more going back and forth repeatedly over the same area to pick up stuff. There was very little assembly required once removed from the box and in 15 minutes you are ready to vacuum. The machine is lightweight and well worth the price.


Scatter-Free Technology

Easily switch from cleaning room to room with 5 adjustable height settings for different floor types and Scatter-Free Technology for debris on hard floors. Bissell vacuum cleaners is generally well-reviewed by purchasers.

A number of buyers say the vacuum is definitely worth it for the price, and that its light weight and small size make it easy to use. The dust canister is exceptionally easy to remove, empty and reattach to the vacuum cleaner.  A button on the canister opens the bottom of the canister allowing the dust and debris to fall away or be removed.


One-touch empty dirt tank

Dirt and debris disposal is easy with a one-touch empty dirt tank. Several other buyers negatively remark that the vacuum can clog and sometimes spew dirt back out as well; but overall, the vacuum is a very solid purchase for its cheap price. There are also several comments that the vacuum has average to below-average suction.

However it should be pointed out that an equal number of folks report that the vacuum has good suction.  This discrepancy could be due to problems with the vacuum itself or, in some cases, the result of clogs or dirty filters.  There are also a few extreme cases where vacuum suction has just stopped altogether.
