Has anyone else seen these yet?

While i'm glad to see another bagged vacuum at the same time i'm not to keen on this model the spiral may allow people to see dirt passing through but at the same time it cuts down bag capacity.

I think it's hideous, but I've never liked the cheap Bissells anyway.... the Healthy Home and some of the older ones are almost tolerable... Even the Bagless Velocity looks better....

They just stuck a bag on a Bissell Powerforce... Eureaka and Panasonic seem to have done similar things, so maybe it's a trend. I think that the window would get clogged with dust after a short while and the dirt wouldn't be visible after that unless it was frequently cleaned, unless the airflow is more powerful than I suspect it to be.

I will agree that at least they are making a bagged vacuum still and that's a good thing....

I'm going to post a link and picture here because it's inconvenient for people to have to copy and paste

I had seen this at walmart. I love the description, " The convinence of a bag with the look and feel of bagless". What a crock. And the size of the bag is laughable, ever have one of those popular dirt devil hand vacs? The bag on this is only about twice the size of the DD hand vac bags, I KID YOU NOT. Still, at least it is another bag vacuum on the market. And I bet maintinence is alot easier on this than the bagless version, and the filtration better too.

I can understand what Bissell was thinking but, they way they made it makes it seem pointless. I agree that its good they made another bagged vacuum but there are still too area where problems can happen

I saw that in walmart the other day and I actually thought it was cool. I think they should sell the bag holder assembly as an accessory, I would buy one.

It's nice Bissell is back to making another bagged vacuum. They had the Powerglide series, but they are off the market.
