The Lift-Off bagless vacuum from Bissell delivers two-in-one cleaning capability and structural smarts for convenient, multi-purpose cleaning. Designed for full-scale use as an upright, the Lift-Off takes its name from the detachable canister that releases from its center for easier maneuvering on stairs and tight corners. A powerful 12 amps in either configuration, the Lift-Off is suitable for low and high carpets as well as bare floors, draperies, and upholstery. The floor nozzle is markedly wide--a full 14-1/2 inches--and delivers dual-edge cleaning, optional brush roll agitation, and seven different heights for floor type variation. The button controlling the brush roll is separate from the power switch, and the nozzle has a view window that lets you track it for clogs or stoppage. Dirt collection on the Lift-Off is bagless, and the removable, rinse-able container locks into place in use. In addition to the cup's built-in filter, the vacuum includes a HEPA Media Filter to keep 99 percent of dust mites, pollen, and ragweed inside the machine. A pre-motor filter keeps particulates out of the engine.

Above-floor cleaning is simplified by the Lift Off's smart attachments, in particular a super stretchy hose that offers nine feet of reach without bulking up the chassis. Other cleaning tools stored on board include a telescoping extension wand, a crevice tool, a stair tool, a dusting brush, and an upholstery tool. Handy extras range from the wide-beam headlight to the extra-gentle furniture bumper to the textured handle grip. The Lift Off comes in a snappy dark red that adds a little spice to cleaning day. Bissell includes a one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars So many features, yet excelling at none
I have been desparate for a "real" vacuum cleaner for a long time. I moved into a loft 2 yrs ago and I inherited my s/o's trusty little dirt devil. The loft has a combination of concrete, tile, laminate, and a variety of (large and furry) area rugs to keep clean and the dirt devil wasn't cutting the mustard.

I bought this one after comparing it to 4 other models at the local Costco. The one I have is green and has a nifty turbo attachment as well, however was priced more than when calculating tax and Amazon's free shipping.

If you want something that is full of features and attachments, this is the vacuum for you. However, there are so many features and attachments, the resulting vacuum is one that makes a lot of compromises.

Here's the rundown in no particular order:
1. Canister and Upright: Yay for both! However, the upright is harder to maneuver, the extender attachment must come off if you have it in canister mode, and the canister looks like it should be kept upright when in canister mode because of the HEPA filter...but it has a really small end to balance on.
2. You have to put it together before you use it. Not a deal-breaker, but if you're not the most do-it-yourself savvy person, it can be a little intimidating.
3. The emptying bin isn't so bad to empty, in fact when we were shopping Bissell had the easiest canister to access and empty: just slide the switch and pull it out (the Hoovers and Eurekas looked like they would be a lot harder and messier to empty). Sure dust can fly, but I just empty it into a grocery bag, tie it up, and that minimizes and contamination that can occur.
4. Hose is relatively indestructible, but doesn't go very far despite its stretchy properties. You need the extender for it to have meaningful reach.
5. Nice edger tool, but disconnecting the hose in the back is a little complicated if you don't also use the extender.
6. Turbo brush works relatively well on stuffed animals and throw pillows but not on carpet. Makes a bizzare whirring noise that can get disconcerting.
7. The cord generally self-unravels. Nice until you start moving around, then it gets messy.
8. 7 floor settings are great, but I have found that unless you have super-shaggy or ultra-deep pile carpet, the middle setting is the best for your average thick carpet. Any less setting and the suction is so hard you can't move it, any higher setting and you get nothing out of the rugs. Bare floor option is nice, but due to the texture of my concrete the low carpet setting with the brush on is the best.
9. So many attachments, no onboard place for two of them. The turbo cleaner and the stair cleaner don't have a home on the vacuum. Alas.
10. Nice that the brush turns off when in an upright position. Disconcerting at first, but once you know about it, it's okay. This almost renders the brush switch pointless for me, but I can see how people who are worried about the brush on their bare floors would want it off.

11. Vacuums well, but I have some newish Ikea carpet that gives off a lot of fuzz. There were still some embedded fur-balls left after a few passes. But in the machine's defense, I don't think those rugs have ever had a "real" vacuuming.
12. HEPA filter blows hot air on your legs. Not a good thing especially since you're essentially giving your arms and back a work-out with this machine
13. Not loud, not quiet. Would have to raise your voice to carry a conversation
14. Manuverability only so-so. Good for wide open spaces, more difficult when you're vacuuming around furniture or edges. Not thin enough at all when in upright mode to vacuum under any of my furniture save for the bed. Needs a clearance of at least 8 inches to poke under and 10-12 inches. to go fully under.

All and all, it is NOT a bad vacuuming machine. It can do everything that you could ever want it to do pretty well, but nothing really great. I'm not sure if there is any other vacuum that would work better for me, and for the price, I would say this was a very fair buy. I just keep looking at the Dyson, and wondering...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great vacuum!
I've only had this unit for a couple of weeks, so I can't comment on durability. However, it looks and feels indestructible. Even the flexible hose for attachments, although heavy, is built like a metal slinky and isn't disfigured or stressed after I dropped the vacuum part off a table onto it. The filters work great and are simple to change out. The dirt is collected and compacted into the bin, so dust doesn't go everywhere when you go to empty it. Stick it in, move a lever and the bin is sealed again. The 'lift off' feature is not really necessary, but seems to be designed well. (I haven't found the Achilles' heel yet, but as an R&D guy in real life, I would want to see how it does attaching and detaching the flexible hose (the slinky) to the base unit a few hundred-thousand times before going to market with it. But, I'm sure someone did.) At some point I am going to attach the unit to a vacuum gauge to see exactly how powerful it is. I had read a bad customer review that was based on poor suction. I haven't needed to pull any industrial strength jobs, but it pulls dog hair galore out of thick carpet, and turned my very thin oriental rug into colors I had never seen before (it had taken on different shades of my dog)... so plenty of suction for anything I've run into. The separate switch for floor brush is nice to turn off for quick dusting jobs. It also flattens horizontally, which is nice for getting under beds and other furniture. However, that same feature makes it a little more difficult to navigate rooms with lots of boarders and power chords, where tilting the front edge of the vacuum up off the carpet to jump over edges is needed frequently. My only real complaint is about the dusting attachment. I had an old Kirby with a dusting attachment with long soft bristles which could be moved across the surface of electronic equipment without bumping into knobs and buttons with something hard. This one has a dusting attachment with a ring of short hard whiskers with which one could poke out an eye. I can't dust the computer keyboard without pressing all the keys, I can't pull dust off a motherboard without clobbering the components. It's really more of a 'scraper' than a duster. It would be good for scrubbing a really tough spot off a tile floor... but not for dusting. I'm assuming I'll be able buy something better to fit the hose, thus earning it five stars. Hopefully this isn't naïve optimism.

5-0 out of 5 stars great deal
well, i think this is a great buy! this cleans so well and makes my carpets look new! i vacuumed with my old vacuum then i vacuumed again over the area with this new one and let me tell you all the dirt this one picked up that my other one did not. overall, i give it a thumbs up!


5-0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny.
There are so many options for vacuum on the market, and it's so hard to find the one that really suits your needs. Am I glad to find this Bissell for my household!! I'd been using Eureka for over ten years, and it finally died on me after replaing three belts over the years. Even though the engine of Eureka was still good, I just thought I really wanted to get a new one this time. After checking so many different models, I finally set my eyes on this Bissell Liftoff. After using it couple times, I am satisfied with its performance. It's much quieter and smoother. Especially the LiftOff part is the greatest feature above all. I get to carry it around to clean the corners and some hard-to-reach spots. It does a wonderful job!! I highly recommend it. ... Read more

You may think of canister vacuums as clumsy beasts, but the 12-amp Bissell DigiPro canister vacuum is anything but. Built with exacting attention to details and sturdy components, the vacuum is easy to use and versatile enough for the whole house. Plus, it incorporates filtration and digital sensor technology that automatically adjusts suction power for optimal results.

Designed for bare floors and carpet, the DigiPro's floor nozzle has edge-cleaning construction, five different heights, a 13-inch cleaning path, and a wide headlight. You can adjust suction with the variable power controls, using low for delicates, economy for normal cleaning, and high for ground-in dirt. Or, leave it on automatic to make use of Bissell's digital detection system. The 5-row brush roll can be switched off if necessary, and the wand telescopes to accommodate different user heights or hard-to-reach tasks. The washable HEPA filtration is a boon to allergy sufferers--it traps up to 99.9 percent of ragweed, dust mites, and pollen.

The DigiPro is useful for above-floor jobs and stairways, too, with a compact shape that fits onto stairs, and a dusting brush, upholstery tool, and crevice attachment stored onboard. Handy extras include a bag-change indicator, fingertip switches, automatic cord rewind, and oversized toe-tap buttons. Large casters, swivel-glide wheels, and a comfortable carrying handle enhance maneuverability. For storage, the nozzle can be parked in two places on the canister, which stores either upright or horizontal. Bissell includes 12 extra vacuum bags to get you started. --Emily Bedard ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Reviewer has a good point, HEPA of very poor design
The Reviewer makes an excellent point! This unit will not provide HEPA filtration of exaust air. So if you are buying this unit due to allergies or based on the procaimed HEPA filtration you would do best to pass this unit up. However as a normal vacuum, the unit is very good. Due to its small size it is very easy to manuver through tight spots. Suction is very good as well as the power head. The hose is of poor quality and tends to kink, but all in all a good vacuum. They just shouldn't claim HEPA filtration as the previous reviewer (mictrik) has pointed out so well. These days it isn't hard to find vacuums with HEPA filtration so passing this unit up wont be to big of a loss. Fix this issue and Bissell would have a true star.

3-0 out of 5 stars If you don't care about HEPA filter - quite good choice
Ok. I reported "air flow problem through power cord attachment place" to the Bissell and that's what they gave me:

"I have been advised that the air release you describe is in the design of the machine and this issue is not unique to your vacuum. It is normal for some air to pass through the filter and some to vent from the bottom of the machine.

The air that passes through the HEPA filter captures over 99.9% of dust mites, pollen, and ragweed."

No offence to the customer support agent she just gave information what she had to give (provided by tech department, I believe)

But still.. this is a crap. How come HEPA filer could work if more than 90% of airflow goes not through the filter?!

If you do not care about HEPA filter, it still very good choice - it's quiet, has a nice look, very good telescoping pipe.

5-0 out of 5 stars works great on my hardwood floors
Originally, bought this the first time I saw it at Linens-N-Things, then decided to see if I could find it cheaper online. Cheapest I could find was the J&R Music and Computer World price at Amazon, but when I read the customer review that said, despite its claims, it didn't actually work on hardwood floors, I decided I had better test out the one I'd already bought since ALL I have are hardwood (90%), vinyl, and a bit of ceramic tile.

IT WORKED BEAUTIFULLY ON MY HARDWOOD FLOORS, picked everything up, and I have not admittedly swept or vacuumed them since before Thanksgiving, PLUS I had just gotten rid of some cats, so there was litter to sweep up - just make sure the beater bar is turned off, but the suction is turned on (which it is not turned on out-of-the-box), either that or you have a defective product.

On top of that, it's lightweight, swivels nicely, is quiet (as vacuums go), easy to lug about the apartment, has strong suction power, the bag appears to be easy to replace, and the attachments are fabulous - I actually prefer the smaller size. The trim around my floors is carved and caked w/years of re-painting; so, it was hard to clean them w/a rag - the crevice tool worked like a charm. I also cleaned a couch w/rather rough upholstery, two chairs w/smooth, silky upholstery, and a my computer chair with the upholstery attachment; as well as sweeping the window sills and attempting even to sweep the blinds with the dusting attachment. All of them rated 5 star in my book...

So unless you are really super duper concerned w/all that HEPA filter jazz another reviewer was complaining about, I would highly recommend this product. I've used really bad, old canisters, and mostly used uprights, and this vacuum is the best - if you have hardwood floors the canister is the way to go, but, even on carpets, I think I would prefer this particular model to an upright anyday, which are generally heavy and clunky to lug around, in my opinion (I originally tested the floor model on the berber carpet at LnT and it worked very well there, too, but I couldn't say for higher/thicker/whatever carpets).

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't be fooled you will not get true HEPA output!!
Yes this vacuum is lite, it's small, it has very good suction and reasonable (a bit small) tools. Though one of the biggest reasons many people buy it is for is it's proclaimed HEPA filtration. This seems like false advertising and I shall explain why. The unit is advertised to provide HEPA filtration but most of the exaust is not expelled through the filter!! Rather it is expelled through the rear of the vacuum where the cord is attached. This is likely because the unit is not sealed. A HEPA filter is attached on the exaust port at the top of the unit but exaust is routed out of cracks do to back-pressure from the HEPA filter. HEPA filters can catch particles as small as 3 microns and this makes them very resistant to air flow. Back pressure is built up due to this resistance and the resulting pressure forces the air to escape through paths of lesser resistance. Unfortunately this releases most all the molds, dust mites, and other allergins into the air. As matter of fact it seems that the filter may only filter 15% of the exaust on this vacuum, the rest finds its way out the cord release and other cracks. Bottom line the unit is flawed by design and saying it offers HEPA filtration is a lie. Anyone who designed this vacuum had to of known this to be true before it hit the market. Their is just about no way any design engineer could of overlooked this. Bissell desided to sell the unit anyway and claim it has HEPA filtration. What a con... Now many people will purchase this unit and never realize that it is not providing the level of filtration it advertised.
I did call their customer service and the service rep (very nice) did confirm that exaust was also expelled from the rear on the sample unit they had in the office. This was all he could say. I Would love to hear from someone at Bissell with regard to this. It would be nice to see a company stand behind their claims. Untill then no stars!!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Sucky
Based in part on the glowing reviews on this site, I purchased this Bissell 6900 vacuum for our small condo. Previously I used a Mighty-Mite canister vacuum for our place, but it has gotten quite old, the hose has a permanent crimp in it, and it never did a very good job on our few area rugs. Most of our floor is bare hardwood, however.

Turns out the Bissell is the exact opposite problem. When I turn on the brushes, it does quite a good job of cleaning our area rugs, but when I turn off the brush, it refuses to pick up anything more substantial than a dust bunny from the hardwood floor. It seems that the base is too wide to allow substantial suction, and there is nothing coming in contact with the floor to dislodge any stuck particles. I dumped a small amount of fresh cat litter on the hardwood floor and tried to pick it up with the Bissell. Very unsatisying, I could have done it faster and more thoroughly with a broom and dustpan.

It seems that a different attachment would work much better for bare floors than the standard one with the brushes, but alas, the one that comes with the vacuum is only about 3 inches wide. The claim that this vacuum works great for both carpet and hardwood seems totally bogus to me.

Some other notes:
- It is actually very quiet with the brushes turned off.
- Suction is also good, as tested by removing the cleaning head and using the various attachments.
- Telescoping feature is nice, but sometimes doesn't lock in place correctly when going over bumpy terrain
- Adjustible power feature seems kind of froofy; I'm not clear on what kind of person would say "well, the floor isn't really TOO dirty, let's ramp down the power a bit today..."

Summary: I wouldn't recommend this vacuum for anyone with more than a few patches of hardwood floor. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect design for hard floors
I bought this vacuum after spending a month in Europe staying with friends. It is much more common there to vacuum hard floors which Americans would usually sweep instead, and they have canister vacuums similar to this one to do it. Shortly after I returned to the States, I moved into a new place with hardwood floors and I knew I wanted one of these vacuums. I did a lot of searching for a similar style vac and this was the best model at the best value. Amazon's price has dropped significantly since then--I paid almost twice as much for it, but I still couldn't be happier with my purchase.

The Butler Revolution is very well-designed. The canister can stand up or lie on its side, and has a nice handle that folds away. Those large wheels make the canister unit easily maneuverable--you can forget the canister is there dragging after you, and focus on cleaning quickly and efficiently with the flexible, lightweight floor cleaning tool. The light, small floor cleaning wand is really the key to being able to clean quickly and thoroughly with this vacuum. It's much quicker to maneuver than one of the larger, heavier, motorized brush heads designed for carpets. This design cleans better along the edges of walls and in corners, and is able to reach underneath furniture--these are usually the dustiest, dirtiest places, after all. The cleaning head and the handle are so flexible, I am able to reach into small or odd-shaped nooks and crannies and even vacuum the floor underneath my king size bed. The underside of the floor-cleaning tool is well-designed for hard floors. In front is a thin line of short bristles which help pick up dust, especially along baseboards. In the center is the cavity through which everything is sucked up, and behind is a squeegee-like rubber strip which prevents you from leaving anything behind. The floor tool is so low and close to the floor that sometimes in order to vacuum up larger objects like coins, bits of paper, or cereal, you have to lift up the head and position it directly over the object--a minor inconvenience, since the head is so light and easily maneuverable, and a fair trade-off considering this vacuum's overall cleaning abilities.

By no means would I recommend this vac for homes with much carpeting. It performs okay on my few rugs, but is a lot slower and less effective than a regular motor-driven brush head designed for carpets. I will probably still drag out my old upright once in a while to clean my room-size rug.

The fact that this vacuum is NOT bagless appeals to me. Having had a few, I don't understand the trend toward bagless vacuum cleaners. In my experience, they are a pain to empty out, and I end up coming into contact with all the dust I was trying to avoid in the first place, first emptying the dust cup, then cleaning out other screens, sponges or filters. I felt like I needed another vacuum to clean my vacuum! That said, I wasn't sure what I would think about the dust cup attached to the Butler's handle, but I was pleasantly surprised. Removal and attachment is quick and straightforward, and the dust empties right out--nothing needs to be shaken or rinsed. The cup catches and holds the larger items you vacuum up before they get to the vacuum bag, so that you hardly ever have to change the bag.

If you have hard floors, stop sweeping and buy this vacuum! You'll clean your entire house in record time. If you have more money to spend, you might want to consider the Eureka Oxygen canister line, which is also very well-designed and has HEPA filtration.

5-0 out of 5 stars Head and shoulders above anything else for the price!
I shopped for weeks before I bought this lightweight canister vac from Amazon at $54.49 with free shipping. I have only hardwood floors and tile, so I decided against a full-size canister with a powered head. The Bissell 6700 is actually a Samsung vacuum, made in Korea and sold as a Samsung only overseas. This unit excels on my floors, and with the well-balanced handle it's easy to pick it up for cleaning windowledges and vacuuming up webs. Compared to other sub-$100 units, this one:
1) is actually solid and well-made.
2) is extremely quiet (yet powerful).
3) has an extendable aluminum tube instead of plastic.
4) has a cord retractor.
5) has a dust cup that significantly extends bag life.
Everything has flaws of course, but these are my nit-picks:
1) the cord is a bit short.
2) there's no crevice tool.
3) replacement bags are not that available (six are included though).
Obviously these problems are easily overcome. If you don't need to vacuum carpet, this is the only canister vac you need consider. I feel like I struck gold!

4-0 out of 5 stars good deal for the price
does a real nice job on wood floors and my area rugs. nice and light weight, good suction and easy to clean under furniture. The dirt cup is easy to clean. i also like the auto cord. for the money it is a good deal.

This machine has more power than I would have thought. I never write a product review, but this one is different. You can really see the difference between this machine and others. You won't be disappointed.

i got this as a gift for my mom, she seem to like it due to the light weight and good power on carpet and hardwood.

however i am very disappointed in as a long time customer. They shipped a USED unit to her, all the plastic bags were opened and the box was resealed a couple times. I dont have the time to do returns for her, but next time i will be much less likely to use amazon as the one stop shop for those products. They lost my trust. ... Read more
