The Bissell PowerClean vacuum is an upright bagless model, currently selling for around $200. The overall styling is OK, but not great. In this review of the Bissell PowerClean vacuum cleaner, I’ll be going over the strengths and weaknesses of this model, then deciding if it’s worth the money. As I just mentioned, I don’t think this is the prettiest unit out there, but I do like the black and red color combination. Here’s a rundown of this model’s best features: a telescoping extension wand, 30 ft power cord, dusting brush, crevice tool, motorized brush roll which you can turn on and off, lifetime belt, HEPA filter, microban, and it has a headlight on the front. The cyclonic action suction power on this vacuum is pretty strong, and picks up most stuff with ease. Another thing that I really like is the 15 inch cleaning path, which is great for getting bigger rooms done quicker.
OK, onto the negative aspects of the Bissell PowerClean vacuum. The fact that this model weighs almost 22 lbs is going to turn some people off. It’s just a little too heavy for my liking, especially carrying it up the stairs. Also, it’s quite noisy, so be prepared for that. Another thing is that it’s a little hard to push on thicker carpet. It seems to be fine on low pile carpets, so if that’s all you have you should be OK. Lastly, I think the hose attachment on the Bissell PowerClean is great, but it tends to lose some suction when using it. Overall, I definitely like this vacuum and would recommend it, even with it’s flaws. I’m giving it a 4 / 5 star rating.
