My short Bissell PowerForce review: The Bissell PowerForce vacuum (6585 model) is well under $100, yet provides a lot of features normally only found on higher end machines. The on-board tools work great for cleaning up hard-to-reach areas. It also has 5 height adjustments (for use on carpet or bare floors), a 30 foot cord, deluxe stretch hose and HEPA filtration system. A lot of pet owners are saying how well it works at sucking up pet hair. So, you can see what I mean by having more features than a normal $65 vacuum cleaner might have.
Suction on the Bissell PowerForce is great. However, quite a number of users are complaining about the loss of suction as this vacuum gets older. Also, be prepared for the cheaper build quality of this model. I guess it’s about what you’d expect from a $65 vacuum cleaner – so, no big deal there. Overall, the Bissell PowerForce vacuum 6585 model is definitely worth the money, and will work great for buyers on a tight budget.
