Vacuum Recs

We're shopping around for a new vacuum and wanted some personal recs (good or bad).  We are not interested in anything Hoover.  We have gone through 3 in the past 3 years and have not been happy with them.

We found a Bissell through Target and it seems good but I don't have any personal experience w/ this brand.

Re: Vacuum Recs

  • We have a way less fancy Bissel than the one you posted (a bagged Powerforce) and we've abused it for 5 years with no problems other than the occasional clog. Seriously, we vacuum a few times a week since we have two cats that like to shed everywhere and it still does a good job picking up after all this time. We'd love to have a fancy Dyson but for a budget, we like Bissel.

  • We have the Bissel Healthy Home, which I wouldn't recommend.  We got it about 3 years ago, and the brush doesn't work half of the time, and it's really messy to clean out.  When it works, it works well, but it just hasn't held up. 
  • My parents & I both had the same Hoover windtunnel bagless & they died after a year or so.  Honestly my Dyson is the only vac that stands up to my two hairy dogs.  My parents have a nice Electrolux and it's not even picking up their dog hair.  Anyway, I think that vac would be fine if you don't have pets.  If you do have pets I think you should spend more for a better machine.  I'm not saying you should spend $500 on a Dyson but I do think $200-300 might be more realistic.  Sorry!

  • I have a Dyson, and it's okay, but I wish I had bought an Oreck. They're feather light with tons of suction. Maybe next time...

  • Thanks for the suggestions, ladies!  We would absolutely love to have a Dyson, but we just don't have it in the budget.  Anything is better than what we have right now.  This Hoover doesn't suck!  Ironic, huh?!  It sounds like Bissell it is!
