Probably the most interesting feature is its tangle free brushroll. We tried our best to get it tangled with pet hair in the pickup tests but it didnt. I also checked as many reviews as I could and the consensus seems to be that it really does prevent or even eliminate tangles on the brushroll. So that is a huge plus right there.
It has lots of attachments including a crevice tool with a battery powered led light which I haven’t seen before. It also comes with a suction powered pet hand tool for upholstery or stairs which we found to be pretty effective.
It has a two in 1 brush attachment for the handle which clips on, it was fairly effective but not all that easy to switch from the regular brushes to the rubber brushes.
Ok so lets jump in to the pros.
Its pickup on carpet was very good, it has a 5 level height adjustment which we found did good for low pile and thick carpets.
It also was a great deep cleaner on carpet scoring a perfect 100 on the embedded sand in the carpet test which was a nice surprise.
It has a really long hose which, even when the vacuum is turned on, and we found that we could reach almost to the top step of our staircase which is rare.
It has a switch that shuts off the brush roll, so it easily transitions from carpet hard floors which is usually only seen on high end Bissell vacuums like this one.
A few final things before we move on to the cons, the wand is very easy to detach for hard to get debris or upholstery cleaning.
It has an unusually big dust bin which is easy to empty, and though debris and hair can occasionally get stuck you can twist off the interior screen without tools, which also makes it easier than most to deep clean.
It has Febreeze infused filters which is a nice touch, and it has a pretty long cord at 30 ft.
So to the cons.
While the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser has above average suction at 76 inches of water lift its airflow was a little below average, we measured it at 67 cfm at the hose and 45 cfm at the wand.
You notice the lackluster airflow mostly on hard floors where I should first say it does fairly well but it is prone to leaving bits of debris, and not just because of the aforementioned bind spot which is a bit of an issue too especially if its heavy debris like sand. Also in order to get larger debris you need to raise the height adjustment which makes it even less effectice on fine debris.
We also saw that while it did pretty good on the crevice pickup test you it really would have don’t a bit better with more airflow.
So to this point its great on carpets but maybe a little below average for hard floors.
One odd thing is that you have to manually turn a knob on the side of the vacuum when switching from using the hose to using it in its regular vacuuming mode. Which I have never seen before and it really hard to remember to do but I suppose you could get used to it.
I also wish the wand was a little bit longer, I said it was easy to remove and that’s true but you have to do a lot of bending over to get to debris on the floor.
While it is a sealed system the filters are not HEPA filters which means it couldn’t pass our sealed system HEPA filter test.
Also at 18 pounds its moderately heavy, 18 pounds is on the upper end of weight for upright vacuums and you do feel it, its not that bad, but its not light by any means either.
