"Best Vacuum I Have Ever Owned"5.0 starson by chudson65
Pros: Awesome suction - removed hair and dirt that I couldn't see
Easy to push and pull
Easy to empty - no filter to accidentally toss from the container
Easy to use hand tools - and they store handily by clipping to the vacuum
Cons: Small amount of debris on top of vacuum when removing container to empty
Summary: After purchasing this vacuum, I read reviews and noted a mix of positive and negative ones, so I wanted to express my opinion. We have 3 inside dogs, 2 more that go in and out, and a cat. I have gone through approximately one vacuum per year for the past 10 years, but never thought any of them picked up all of the hair. The first time I used the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser vacuum, I had to empty the hair 4 times while vacuuming the den. I have continued to be impressed with the suction power of this machine, and with the pet hair bar on the front. I have had none of the problems mentioned in some of the negative reviews. When using the accessories, the roller bar on the front does not touch my carpet and is not a problem. I have not had trouble removing the tools from their clips, or with the hose coming loose while using the tools. I think this vacuum is definitely worth the $138 I paid, and deserves 5 stars!!
