My wife and I are very, very pleased with this lightweight vacuum cleaner. I should like to tell you how we came to buy it and why we are so happy with the purchase.
Recently my wife stated that she wanted a second lightweight vacuum cleaner for quick touch-ups in addition to our two main Eureka 4870MZ Boss Smart-Vac Upright HEPA Vacuum Cleaners. (We live in a two-story house and keep one of these relatively heavy vacuum cleaners on each level.)
We saw a Shark Multi-Vac, NH15 advertised at a very low price (even lower than Amazon's!) at a local "big-box" store but after doing some research here on Amazon, we saw so many customer complaints about this product (even from some who liked it), especially as regards...
and that's a good thing... i have this model, a 3106-1 - the Bissell Featherweight Bagless, and a very similar model from the same manufacturer (both are made in China), the 38B1-3 - the Bissell 3-in-1 Vac...
these are nearly identical and cost exactly the same locally and on-line... i say 'nearly identical,' as they weigh the same, have the same length cord, share the same ergonomics (handle, cord storage, assembly, emptying, etc.), and similar suction...
rest assured that this model will work just as well, if not better than the 3-in-1... but here are the differences:
- this model has a 1.2A motor, whereas the 3-in-1 has a 2A motor - nod to 3-in-1
- both models come with a crevice tool, as does the 3-in-1 - even score
- this model has an opaque canister, so you cannot see how much dirt has been vac'd, whereas the 3-in-1 is translucent - nod to 3-in-1 - one star off on my review
- both models are easy to empty - even...
I love this little Bissell vacuum. I have two medium/large dogs, one which sheds most of the year. I have tried, sweeping, Swiffering, and hauling out my heavy Eureka vacuum, (which is great for carpets), all of which have their drawbacks.
When I read reviews on this vacuum, I saw complaints of not working for carpets, fills up too fast, and the cord is not long enough.
In response, you can buy pretty much any length of extension cord you need for your situation for under $15. Be sure you get the correct type of cord, of course, to use with a vacuum. I bought an indoor/outdoor type that can be used for many things.
Extra filters are not expensive. If one filter fills up, I put in another one and then clean and wash them out afterwards. They are very easy to remove and replace, and the unit empties easily.
If you are buying this small vacuum as a whole house only vacuum cleaner, it may not be what you really need. Depending on the size of...
