The hose attachment gets pet hair with ease, but the floor bristles have a little bit of difficulty picking up my German Shepard's fur. If you have long/short hair cats and short hair dogs there is no problem, but long hair dogs can pose a bit of difficulty for the floor bristles.

It is... OK. It will send larger particles flying, but I think it's because I always forget to lower the level. I often used in the laundry room to pick up loose cat litter and I usually went over the edges with the wand and that got everything.

If you switch "OFF" the beater brush and use a lower power head height setting, it should perform quite well. If the beater brush is running on a hard surface such wood or tile flooring, it can scatter dirt instead of allowing the vacuum cleaner to capture it. Hope this helps.

I had ours for 6 years and it is still going strong. The canister has started to separate from the top, so we have to manually put it back together before attaching it back to the machine. It's still usable, just annoying. So we're ordering another one and this one will go to the garage for my husband to use. It has definitely outlived the warranty as well as every other vacuum we ever purchased!

I have been using the same machine for my house cleaning business for about a year and have only had one problem. The hose cracked and broke but I had a replacement shipped to me and it was reasonably priced. I clean my vacuum after every use and make sure the roller does not have hair and carpet pieces stuck in it hindering its ability to roll. I also make sure the filters are cleaned.

It's the best for pet hair pickup!!! It works better than the Dyson pet, I know this because my house is cleaner than my friends who uses a Dyson Pet. (she is always asking to use mine). The amount of hair that I pick up amazes me, even after I had my carpets professionally cleaned the vacuum still filled up after one use (my house is clean, and I only have 2 cats!) Not only is it good for the hair, but it pulls up the dirt and dander that comes with animals, and it helps if you have someone in the home with allergies!

answer 2
We had ours for 6 years and I'm ordering again. It never released a "cloud" of dust - it goes straight down. That said, I always found it better to take out the garbage before vacuuming so that I could drop the canister deep into the bag. If the bag is full, the dust and dirt lands on top of it and does spread a bit - like to the edges of the can which then need to be cleaned.

I believe its around 26lbs. Its a bit heavier than a standard vacuum, but I find that it slides easy on the floor. The vacuum also has amazing power, and cleans better than any vacuum that I have used!

answer 3
Mine weighs 24.4 pounds, a good 6 to 8 pounds heavier than your average vacuum. However, the weight is due to the use of heavy duty components like the polycarbonate dust bin, a long 30 foot power cord and the use of a second motor to control the brush. It does have a hefty handle for carrying it up stairs and large wheels to help move it around thick carpets. All in all, its a well engineered machine and does a great job if you can deal with the weight.

I think this would be ideal for your application because of the deep and thorough cleaning ability of the Bissell Heavy Duty and the ease with which you can empty the dust bin. However, be aware that the machine is quite heavy at 24 pounds, a good 6 to 8 pounds heavier than your average machine.

1. Make sure the power button for the brush roller is turned on. It's the little grey button beside the red power button.

2. Make sure the vacuum is set to roll via the recline button at the base. If the vacuum is in the fully upright position the rollers will not spin.

3. The vacuum has a built in feature where it will stop spinning if there is a jam so it will not spin the belts and cause a fire. Check and make sure there is nothing jamming the belts like string or a large object.
