Bissell Lift-Off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum {Review}

In a household with three very busy body kids and an outdoor cleaning hubby, you can just imagine the amount of {stuff} that makes it into the house daily. Dirt, leaves and just random debris ends up on the floor making it a tough job for any old vacuum. In addition to the daily {stuff} are indoor allergens that could use the assistance of one heavy duty vacuum to help alleviate all these daily battles. Bissell Lift-Off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum was up for the challenge!

The Test drive by ace and friends

Assembly was super simple but I did need a Phillips head screwdriver to attach the handle to the base and it took less than a minute to do it.

The hose and accessories snapped into place and I was ready to roll.

There are many qualities that I enjoy about the Bissell Lift-Off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum. Because I have carpeted and hardwood floors in my home, I wanted a vacuum that could easily go from one type of surface to the next. I appreciated that the wheels on this vacuum are made of a plastic/rubber material and don't damage or scratch our hardwood floors. 

Another thing that I really liked about this vacuum was that the dust cup is easily accessible, easy to empty and then easy to put back into place.  The dust cup container is located on the front of the vacuum and you can see through the clear plastic container when it needs to be emptied.

So, how does it sound and does it really work? First, the carpet. It performed very well on the carpet, picking up ALL sorts of YUCK (see above). The vacuum had some weight to it, but nothing overly unusual. It was easy to maneuver and I really liked the ability to go from the carpet area to the hardwood floors with a flip of a switch. By turning off the brush, you can easily transfer to the hardwood floors.

It easily picked up crumbs, leaves and other {stuff} on both surfaces. 

To reach the stairs, the canister detaches with ease and I could carry it with me to clean the staircase as well as the sofa and more. {love.}

So what are my favorite features: 
  • Amazing suction power.
  • Press N' Go Lift-off feature. For use on stairs and other hard to reach areas.
  • Bagless.
  • Dedicated on-off switch for brush. To vacuum wood floor without brush.
  • Brush automatically turns off when unit is at upright position. - Furniture protection rubber guard. 
  • Pet Brush Attachment - has rotating rubber spinner to grab hair as you vacuum carpet or furniture surfaces.  
 Bissell Lift-Off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum in action

I was thrilled that it picked up dust and dirt out of the carpet as well as worked perfectly on the hardwood floors. The crevice tools, pet turbo brush and extension piece performed as expected.  I really like that ALL of the attachments are housed/stored right on the vacuum itself. It makes for easy accessibility and easy storage. Some vacuums don't have this ability and I have been known to lose an attachment or two. So kudos to Bissell for their design.

Overall the vacuum was easy to maneuver and use. My first impression of the unit is quite positive and I expect many years of cleaning satisfaction with my Bissell Lift-Off Multi Cyclonic Pet Vacuum.
