This review is from: BISSELL 89Q9 Lift-Off Multi Cyclonic Bagless Upright Pet Vacuum 89Q9
Pros: Good suction, easy to clean. Detachable canister feature
Cons: The accessories kill it. It is a good machine, but the attachments are over-designed. For example, the brush accessory is an overly-complex and bulky piece that you must rotate to align the suction with the brush or brushless end of the device. This also makes it fairly bulky, which means it cannot be used to clean baseboards behind furniture unless you allow 4-5 inches standoff from the wall. Even then it misaligns easily when bumped against the furniture (common because of its size), short-circuiting the suction and requiring that you again align the piece before continuing. Its short (3/8") bristle length also makes it useless for common tasks such as cleaning blinds. Finally, Bissell uses a non-standard accessory tube size, which means that common, aftermarket parts will not fit. In other words, you will a second machine (of a different manufacturer) if you will have many tasks that require the brush accessory.
Other Thoughts: There are many other equivalent products.READ FULL REVIEW
