"Good boat anchor"0.5 starson by c6684
Pros: There is nothing good to say about this
Cons: If it stays in 1 place on carpet for any length of time while using the hose attachment (for furniture) it actually damages the carpet like a burn; if you move the vacuum while using the attachment, hair poofs out of the place where the hose attached
Summary: Very difficult to even use the 'pet hair eraser attachment'--cannot get it detached very easily from the vacuum; stairways are very awkward; vacuum heavy; No matter how clean the filters are kept, it is a very dusty dirty vacuum and it has a great time spreading it around the house; tons of static buildup in upper filter so when it's removed the hair sticks to your hands and flies around the room; the cord location is just poorly designed and always in the way; the cord 'holder' that is used to keep it out of the way isn't even large enough to accomodate the cord; the headlilght really never worked-now it may just pop on for a couple seconds and then go out again;...Bissell needs to contact real people who vacuum in real situations when they are product testing. I wish I had another 150 bucks to go buy a different vacuum...
