Bissell Powerforce Vacuum Review
The Bissell company has earned a reputation for designing and manufacturing vacuum cleaners for a variety of budgets and vacuuming needs.
The Bissell PowerForce 6596 is a budget vacuum with loads of power and just enough accessories to get the job done. Except for the color there is nothing fancy about this semi-lightweight vacuum but it still has a lot of great features you wouldn’t expect in a lower priced vacuum.
Let’s have a look at the 6596 Bissell PowerForce vacuum cleaner model.
Features of the Bissell PowerForce Vacuum
The Bissell PowerForce vacuum is loaded with features and here are some of the features that has garnered this vacuum a lot of attention.
- 12 amp motor
- 5 height adjustments
- High beam headlight
- 3 Stage filters- HEPA filter
- Turbo brush attachment
- Carrying handle
- Dual edge for corner cleaner
- Furniture protector
- 24 foot cord
It is pretty amazing to see a vacuum that sells for as low as $70.00 having three filters, 5 height adjustments, and a bright high beam headlight for seeing into dark corners of the room.
These are features you would expect to find on much more expensive vacuums and to find them on a budget vacuum is impressive to say the least. But do these features really add to the performance of the Bissell PowerForce?
According to most reviewers these added features are the icing on the cake for the Bissell PowerForce Bagless Upright Vacuum. What most reviewers were quick to note is how much power this vacuum had comparing it favorably to much higher priced models. However, power wasn’t the only thing people liked about this vacuum.
Advantages of the Bissell PowerForce Vacuum
Most reviewers felt that the Bissell PowerForce vacuum cleaner had several good qualities and here are just a few that were mentioned.
- High suction- One reviewer suggested that anyone using this vacuum might want to keep this vacuum away from their curtain hems, while another reviewer stated this vacuum drew old carpet freshener out of the carpet even after the carpet had been vacuumed and steamed cleaned using other carpet cleaners.
- On board tools
- Bright headlight
- Washable filters
- Great price
However, not all reviews for this vacuum cleaner were glowing and there were some things that reviewers did not like.
Disadvantages of the Bissell PowerForce Vacuum
Some reviewers felt that the PowerForce clogged far too easily and there were also a couple of other things they did not like about this vacuum:
- Frequent belt breakage
- Filters messy to clean
The reality is that no one should expect a $70.00 vacuum to perform like one that costs $400.00. In order to make a budget vacuum and still make a profit companies cannot use the highest quality parts on every aspect of a budget vacuum.
