Bissell PowerForce(TM) Compact Vacuum Cleaner Review.
Again, there are no lights, no adjustments, no dirt finders, and no frills with this cleaner, only the basics. The cord is very short and necessitates unplugging even halfway across the room of my humble abode. An extension cord, which I have plenty of, would fix this easily of course. However if you're looking for this out of the box this is not your vacuum. What I do like and appreciate from any Bissell product including this one is the value. This one can clean better than vacuum several times the price with ease. At only 11 pounds, this weighs just three pounds more than a gallon of milk and is much easier to wield, even with the fixed wheels. Even though you have to make multiple passes with it, it's still easier than lugging a 20 pound vacuum around. Considering I have arthritis and tendinitis this is a huge blessing. One issue I'm not enthralled about is that the handle wants to move when you pull it back. As an amateur engineer, I want things like handles to stay put. A spot of Goop will cure this as I use it for any adhesive needs. I've fixed door handles and even a seal cushion with the stuff and it has never failed, but I digress.
If you're looking for a good, cheap vacuum that actually cleans, look no further than the Bissell PowerForce Compact. Maranatha!
