The Bissell Heavy Duty is an upright model, which as the name suggests, is supposed to provide deep cleaning to your dirty floors and carpets. In this review of the Heavy Duty vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then decide if it’s worth buying. As far as looks go, it’s actually quite sleek and stylish – which is not always the case with models from this manufacturer. Here’s a quick rundown of features you’ll find on this unit: non-stop suction, HEPA media filter, 9x Multi-Cyclonic action, 15 inch cleaning path, multi-brush bar system with on and off switch, a 30 ft power cord, dual edge cleaning, easy empty dirt container, 7 height adjustments, lifetime belt, headlight, and this vacuum also has a telescoping wand with some attachment tools. This is actually a pretty decent feature set, but next we’ll see everything works properly.
Alright, onto the negative aspects of the Bissell Heavy Duty vacuum. One issue is that the hose tends to spring back, because the suction power is so strong. While this may be a good problem to have, it can also get annoying that it doesn’t extend all the way. Another problem I have with this model is that it is very heavy – at nearly 35 lbs. I know being heavy is usually a sign of quality, but this is going to be way to heavy for most users. Other than that, I don’t have a lot to complain about. I do think the Bissell Heavy Duty vacuum cleaner is a bit pricey, but you do get what you pay for. Overall, I’m very impressed with this unit. The suction power is tremendous, and it has a good number of useful features. I’m giving this unit a 4.5 / 5 star rating.
