    Extremely Effective in Picking Up Pet Hair and Dust, November 5, 2009

    This review is from: Bissell Lift-Off MultiCyclonic Pet Upright Vacuum with Detachable Canister, Bagless, 89Q9 (Kitchen)

    Must-have features:
    – Suction power. Great suction power.
    – Lift-off feature. For use on stairs.
    – Bagless.
    – Dedicated on-off switch for brush. To vacuum wood floor without brush.
    – Brush automatically turns off when unit is at upright position. Save brush and carpet wear-and-tear when using attachments.
    – Furniture protection rubber guard.

    Nice-to-have features, but not absolutely needed:
    – Pet brush. “Pet” model means unit come with a Turbo Pet Brush attachment. Pet brush has rubber claws, which grab hair as you rake the surface of carpet or sofa. It is somewhat useful, but not to die for. Buy the Lift-Off models only if you want the must-have features. You can buy the Turbo Pet Brush attachment separately for $29.

    Useless features (just marketing):
    – Head light.

    I was interested in buying the Bissell Lift-Off, but there is lack of info on the web to compare the 2 Bissell Lift-off models: Multiclylonic (89Q9) and Revolution. Rather than just a generic review, I will try to describe the difference between Lift-Off Revolution and Multicyclonic. Their sucking power seems similar. The visible differences are (1) dirt container, (2) upper tank right above the dirt container, and color.

    (1) Dirt Container. Multicylconic and Revolution has different design. Small advantage to Multicyclonic. Multicylonic has 2 compartments; 1 cylinder in center and 1 large outer compartment. Revolution has single main compartment, plus 2 additional small dust chambers that extend out from chamber. I don’t see any special impact or effect to the various compartments. But one thing I don’t like on the Revolution is the 2 additional dust chambers with removable inserts, which are a mess to handle and clean.

    The dirt container is the same size on both units. These units suck up so much hair and dust that the dirt containers need to be emptied after cleaning couple rooms. I have 2 short hair cats. The hair will clump together and rotate in the dirt container. As the container fills up (maybe 1/2 to 3/4 full), some hair will remain in the upper tank and not drop down into the dirt container.

    (2) Upper tank. This is where the 2 units vary the most. Overall, I give the advantage to Multicyclonic, due to ease of cleaning, particularly with less hair trapped in upper tank. Revolution does have 1 added feature: upper tank can be removed, which is less messy to clean up.

    – Upper tank filter size. Multicylonic has more open space in upper tank right above the dirt container. That means less likely for hair to get trapped. Revolution has large filter component that leaves a small gap to the compartment wall. Hair is more likely to get trapped. You can read the review for Revolution. And this is a major complaint for some users. Big advantage for Multicyclonic over Revolution here.

    – Filter material. The upper tank on Multicylonic uses only plastic components, whereas Revolution has foam filter in upper tank. Both can be washed and rinsed out, but plastic is just easier and faster to clean. Another advantage for Multicyclonic.

    – Removable upper tank on Revolution. The upper tank on Revolution is removable, but fixed on Multicyclonic. The positive for Revolution is that I can remove both upper tank and dirt container and empty them in the garbage can. On the Multicylonic, after bottom dirt container is removed, some remaining dust can drop down from the upper tank right onto the vacuum body.

    Awesome vacuum cleaner! I love it!, June 28, 2009
    Mae “Yellowbreezes” (Appalachia) –

    This review is from: Bissell Lift-Off MultiCyclonic Pet Upright Vacuum with Detachable Canister, Bagless, 89Q9 (Kitchen)

    Actually I just bought one of these yesterday and tried it last night. So far I’m very impressed. It has easy maneuvering and isn’t too heavy. The power and suction were great. It picked up pet hair and bird seed with ease. With the main brush turned off, it does a great job on bare floors. I tried the extension wand with the rolling brush pet attachment. It quite impressed me, making it easy to clean pet hair from upholstery. The canister can detach from the main vacuum frame for mobility into tight places or to make it easier to vacuum car upholstery. When done, it pops easily back into place.

    The extra attachments were a little difficult to lock into place both when being used and when being stored. That is only a small inconvenience though and I’ve owned other vacuums of different brands that had those types of issues. I do think this vacuum will be the best one I’ve ever owned, and with dogs, cats and birds in the house, we go through a vacuum about once a year. Bissell makes really good products. I also own a carpet steam cleaner made by them and it has been a good machine.

    This vacuum has two filters that must be kept clean to maintain performance. One is on the front and one on the back of the machine. They are both easily accessible. The electrical cord is extra long which is another feature that I love. The collection bin is easy to remove for emptying and locks easily back into place. Overall, I’m very happy with this machine and I definitely think it is worth the money.
