3 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

This vacuum received a rating of 60 out of 100 from expert review website Howstuffworks.com. The vacuum cleaner expert review sites aren't convinced by this Bissell vacuum cleaner.


Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Most similar spec vacuums that have been around for around the same time as the PowerForce do not have a brush tool. The PowerForce is no exception to this as it too does not have a brush tool.

We think you might also be interested in alternative vacuums which also have a brush tool including the Dyson DC44 which also has a higher Rating.

Not Cordless

Like most of the other vacuums that have been on the market for more than two years, the PowerForce is not cordless.

If you would prefer a vacuum cleaner that is cordless then you might want to look at the Dyson DC44, or the AEG Ergorapido AG 3002 which also has a higher Rating.
