Around here a vacuum gets a lot of use.
When you have over 2000 s.f. of carpet and two dogs, it can be a challenge keeping your carpet clean.
It really is a job that not just any vacuum can tackle.
Thankfully we now have a whole new vacuum in our house that makes the job a little bit easier.

The Bissell PowerGlide is nothing like I expected. It takes vacuuming to a whole new level. A really cool an unique new level. It combines the functionality of a traditional vacuum with the portability and ease of a handheld. And makes the switch easily.
Assembly was easy. It was mostly intact out of the box. You snap the body of the vacuum onto the base. Then the handle slips into place easily and then you just have to attach the clips that hold the extra tools, and attach the hose. Takes less than a minute.
My dogs were pretty interested in the PowerGlide as I set it up.
The Bissell PowerGlide functions both as a regular vacuum and as a portable vacuum so that you can take it with you throughout the house without missing a beat. It’s fairly easy to remove, you press the release button, grab the handle on the hose, and lift the unit off the base. The cord is attached to the portable part so it comes right along with you.
It has a Pet TurboEraser Tool to get pet hair off just about anything and a crevice tool to get into tight places.
The handle collapses down for easy storage or even to adjust for different height users.
The vacuum has a setting to turn off the brushroll for hard floor cleaning and it does have a swivel head for easier turning but I found the swivel feature isn’t overly smooth, although the more I use it, the smoother it gets.
For those with allergies, the PowerGlide also has filtration to help reduce allergens.
This vacuum seriously is one of the most powerful I’ve ever used. The suction is incredible both as a regular vacuum and in the portable setup as well. I have never had a vacuum that had this much suction even through the attachments.
It’s not the lightest vacuum ever, but it’s not heavy either.
As a portable vacuum, the unit is light enough for my son to carry and use, and is the perfect solution to cleaning my stairs.
And it’s Toby approved. At least until I turn it on. Then he runs away. I *might* find that funny and chase him with the vacuum.
Room for improvement
Overall I think this is a great vacuum. Practically perfect in every way as Mary Poppins would say.
But I do have a couple of things I would change if they let me wave my magic wand.
First I would improve how it cleans along the edges, along the walls. I have to rely on the tools to get along the edges of the wall.
Second, I would move the tools from the base of the vacuum to the portable part because if you want to change tools while using it in the portable mode, you have to go find where you left the base in order to do it.
