With the Bissell Hard Floor Expert Deluxe canister vacuum, you have a specialized, lightweight tool designed to clean delicate surfaces, high and low, with powerful suction.

Why should I invest in a canister vacuum?
Canister vacuums are generally lighter and more maneuverable than uprights. They are great for vacuuming under low tables and furniture. The compact design makes them easy to store and to carry on stairs. Many canister vacuums have tools and attachments that clean almost any surface.
What makes it safe for hard floors?
It has nonmarking wheels made of rubber and felt. The brush has softer bristles that are not as tough on hard floors as a typical vacuum brush.

I am attaching lots of pictures of this Hard Floor canister vacuum so that you'll see the wonderful features it has to offer.
First of all, I didn't read the product specs when I bought it, and I discovered them as I was taking the vacuum and its parts out of the box. I expected a regular canister vacuum, nothing fancy. One thing that caught my eyes was the 2 AAA batteries. I have never had a vacuum that uses batteries. So I read the quick 3 step instructions on putting the batteries in the handle which has a built in remote that allows the user to control the amount of suction and to temporary turn off and on the vacuum. Impressive!! In order to use the remote in the handle, you will need to first turn the vacuum on by pressing the ON button on the canister. Then you can adjust the suction and turn the vacuum off/on using the remote in the handle. When you press the ON/OFF button in the remote to turn it off, you'll noticed that a light going back and forth on the canister, indicating that the vacuum is on, but in like a pause mode. This is the same light used to indicate the suction setting.
Another thing that I really like is the canister for the dirt/dust. I thought it was going to use a disposable bag or one of those canisters that require me to scrap the dust off the filter in the canister, which is very messy. Well, this one is very well designed, and the dirt/dust is trapped in one side of the canister, and once the door opens, I can easily dump the dirt into the trashcan without having to touch the dirt, and no dirty filter to scrub either. Very nice!
The first thing I noticed during set up is that the parts can be attached and unattached very easily. It is so user friendly. I don't have to push and pull the parts part. They click into place, and by pushing the button on the side, the parts can be slide apart with little effort. When I turn the vacuum on, WOW... so quiet! It makes me naturally handle the vacuum more gently. I turned the suction setting up to a 5. I can feel the suction on my hard wood floor, sucking up the dirt/dust/fur.
I used the carpet part to vacuum the rug, and it seemed to do a pretty good job. I don't have any carpet in my house to really test it out. I used the hand tool with the brush to vacuum the runner on the staircase, and WOW, it sucks up all the pet fur with little effort. I have 3 cats and 1 little dog, and they shed a lot. I am really thankful that I found this vacuum, because it really sucks up all the fur, and my house looks and feels so clean.
Although I have only used it once and only vacuumed 2 of the 3 floors and 1 of the 2 flights of staircase, I am amazed by how much this vacuum sucked up. Not sure where it found all the fur! LOL
I hope this vacuum will hold up. I'll update this review if I ran into any problems. Until then... I am so happy with this vacuum, and the price is so reasonable for the performance I'm getting. No, I can get rid of the old canister and the new handvac that is underperforming.
I was only using a stick vac for the past 6 years until we came down with a flea problem. I bought this to try to get it under control. After flea bombing the house, I did a thorough cleaning from top to bottom, every room, every surface. I used this vacuum like you wouldn't believe.
It is wonderful on hard floors, low carpet and upholstery. I use the rolling brush attachment for the hard wood and the laminate. Then I used the carpet attachment on hard floor setting for the linoleum and cement. The carpet attachment works great on my throw rugs that can't go in the washer. I think the dirt cup is ok size, I didn't mind emptying it often. The cord could have been slightly longer, but again, I didn't mind moving it around. I love the swivel function of the heads and that I can get under and around everything with relative ease. I also used it on my walls. I picked up lots of debris, it didn't like some things, coins, heavier or larger pieces of anything, but does any vacuum like them except maybe a shop vac? I really like that I can adjust the suction up or down. When I used around my curtains, I could turn it down so it didn't suck in the whole curtain, or turned it up to make sure I got everything under the baseboards, etc.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this to someone that has all hard floors and maybe some low pile rugs. It does the job that I needed it to and I used it almost constantly for 3 days.
Pros: Worked great on all types of hard floors. Moves easily, swivels nicely for getting under everything. Suction is good. Very easy to empty and clean filters. Can turn off the power on the handle to stop and move furniture or change heads.
Cons: Could have a slightly longer cord (not a big deal).
