I've had a Bissell Pet Hair Eraser for over 12 years, it works great.
I have wood flooring in my house with area rugs, we have a lot of sand in the soil here which my guys have always brought in. I've replaced the roller brush a few times.
Bissell has a new cordless vac model I'd really like to get which is similar to the Dyson.
I like doing business with companies that pay it forward, for every Bissell product that is sold, a portion of the sales goes to the Bissell Foundation.
Just a few weeks ago I bought a "Shark Duo Clean Powered Lift Away Speed Vacuum" from Kohls. Model #NV801. With a sale price and other discounts, I got a good deal and am very happy with it. It picks up a LOT of golden hair that my old vacuum missed, and I think I'm picking up some of the German Shepherd hair that the previous owner of my house missed too!
When I got mine, they had three different pet hair erasers, I got the middle one.I will check into this one. I wonder if they still make it. Thank you for the suggestion!
Our house has laminate in every room but the bedrooms. The upright Dyson is great for hard floors. You just push a button and the roller turns off.My oversight. I should have specified that about 95% of our floors are hardwood or tile. We have a large area rug in our living room but no carpet at all. Do most of you still suggest the Shark, the Dyson, the Bissell, and the Electrolux? Thank you. Sorry I wasn't specific with my initial question!
I have a mixture of carpet and hard surface floors and it works very well on both types (Shark Duo Clean, NV801 from Kohls). There are a lot of good vacuums out there; this one is a good fit for me as it is lightweight, easy to empty, converts from hard floors to carpet with a flip of the switch at the top of the handle. The power head is not terribly wide, which has advantages and disadvantages. It means you can get into tight places easily like between chair legs, but also means if you are vacuuming a large open area it may take a little longer. It also has a nice bright headlight. The Duo Clean roller feature works very well at sucking up hair, dust, etc., and is very easy to access for cleaning, this was an important feature for me as well. I found a good YouTube video on this one with someone who demonstrated unpacking it, putting it together and using the various features.Thank you for the specific information - including the model #. Do you have mostly carpet or hard surface floors - or will it work on both types of flooring? Thank you.
