You should send this clip to Bissell! Hope you saved your receipt!

To the vacuum reviewer:

I'm sorry if these seems negative, but you are blaming the vacuum when you should be blaming yourself for using it inappropriately. It's not a shop vac. You should test it on what it's designed to do. At least it's only a $100 Bissell and not a $2600 Rainbow being abused.

Actually, this does look terrible. When they launched this I thought it would be a decent little vacuum as Bissell make some quite okay vacuums which don't cost a lot but this isn't good even for $100.

Yeah I have been following your videos for a while as well. It is good at the different types of vacuums you get your hands on and your videos are very good. You seemed to be very impressed with the Dyson cinetic's agitation.

I was thinking about getting this for my front porch, I have a pathetic Bissell Sweep up that use every day on it and once a week I will use my Dyson DC65. This is the kind of mess I clean up. Maybe I should spend the extra $60 and get the Shark Rocket.

That Bissell...

niclonnic's profile picture
...Indeed looks terrible! I've had some bad experiences with Bissell, as well! That machine is designed just as bad as the Bissell cordless stick/hand vacuum I use at a restaurant. Both machines have lots of similarities, such as weak suction, filters that clog easily and narrow paths that clog VERY easily.

The design of it reminds me a lot of my Bissell C4 Cyclonic canister vacuum, down to the way that the wand and tools are designed. But my Bissell canister was $300 and works TONS better than that piece of junk! I've always had good luck with Bissell at my house. Overall, Bissell is my second favorite vacuum brand behind Dyson.

Yeah, I've been watching Kode1996's videos for quite a while now. It was nice to finally see what he looks like!

I don't know if anybody has noticed, but I have changed my profile pic on Vacuumland to a picture of me! That's me on the far left.

BTW, as of today, I've been a member of Vacuumland for a full year! So this post is like an anniversary of sorts.

As a bonus, I'm uploading a pic of the plugged up filter on the Bissell stick/hand vac I use at Sabrina's restaurant. It got really clogged up with cottonwood seeds.

$100 is approximately 64-50. He'll be hard pushed to get something like that in the UK.

Despite the "bad" pick up, I rather like the Bissell idea. But I doubt it would be priced so cheaply in the UK.

If anyone else hasn't noticed, this Super-Light vacuum has been very quickly and QUIETLY discontinued.. All referenced links from google lead to pages that show the product doesn't even exist.. All material and FAQ has been also removed. Leads me to believe they either had a lawsuit from Shark or some sort of major defect or recall.

I think you hit the nail on the head here....except the poor cyclonic system WAS the major defect! When you look at the Shark Rocket & the Bissell Power Lifter Super Lite, they look to be made by the same Chinese manufacturer, Kingclean. I would bet good money that once Bissell saw the Shark Rocket, they designed this, sent the design to Kingclean to be manufactured, & rushed it to market. Which obviously they regret now, & discontinued it. Give it a year, & there will likely be a new & improved version with better cyclonic system.

These will probably become like Fantom Wildcats.. horribly flawed but rare to find.
