The Bissell Powerglide Lift Off pet looks to be a great vacuum with a low price, powerful pet hair pickup and swivel steering that will make vacuuming the house easy. In addition the machine features a large dirt bin which should help make vacuuming easier by not requiring many trips to the garbage to empty the vacuum. The system also includes a few attachments designed to help clean the house, especially pet hair that clings to surfaces in the home. Lastly the Lift-off feature makes the vacuum easily portable for attachment usage as the base separates from the rest of the vacuum so you can hold it in your hand and carry it to wherever you need to clean.
The vacuum is very efficient at floor cleaning with a wide brushroll and powerful suction that make it very good choice for anyone who wants to clean carpets quickly. The brushroll makes quick work of pet hair and can clean most of it with a single pass, with the rest being picked up by the second pass. The vacuum also has good airflow and strong suction which work along with the brushroll to remove deep dirt that’s trapped in the carpet pile. In addition the swivel steering, although nowhere near as good as the Dyson ball, works well enough to make cleaning easier by allowing you to turn a small amount by just turning your wrist. Overall the Bissell Powerglide Lift Off Pet does a great job at carpet cleaning and will also work out pretty well for those who want to clean hard floors.
The vacuum does well for attachment cleaning as well thanks to the attachments included and the lift off feature that allows the machine to detach the base from the rest of the machine so you can carry it around, however the vacuum feels very heavy. This may not seem like a lot but it can start to hurt when you want to clean things like stairs or curtains. The turbo brush that’s included with the machine is great for pet hair thanks to the rubber pet hair system that can be attached to the brush. The pet hair system makes cleaning pet hair a breeze by collecting it and making it easy to suck into the vacuum’s large bin.
The Bissell Powerglide Lift Off Pet makes cleaning very easy for carpets, hard floors, and attachment usage. The vacuum performs quite well on carpets and removes a large amount of pet hair, and does great at attachment cleaning. If you can get over the machine not feeling very comfortable to lift off and carry around then this machine might be just right for you.
