Review Summary

The Bissell PowerForce (Models: 12B1 & 68C7)) is a bagless upright vacuum cleaner with powerful suction and 12 amps motor. It features a unique Helix dirt separation system capturing more dust/debris and pushing it to the bottom of dirt container to keep the filters clean longer. The 15” extra wide cleaning path provides fewer passes for quicker cleaning. The cleaner also has 5 height floor adjustment options, thus making it easier to clean any surface effortlessly. The 15” rotating brush and other tools further help in cleaning stairs, furniture, upholstery etc. The dirt container, filter and/or brushes are easy to remove and clean for maintenance which makes this cleaner efficient and budget friendly.

However, one major concern for many users is that the dirt stores in the dome of the dirt cup and drops down when opened to empty the dirt container.

Review Summary

The Hoover SteamVac Carpet Cleaner features a powerful 12-amp motor combined with 5 multi-directional spinning brushes that operate at high or low speeds to lift the usual and grime dirt out of carpets. These pop out brushes are easy to remove and rinse after use. It comes with 3-speed Brushroll Control setting – high for normal cleaning, low for gentle cleaning and off for spill pick-ups. The SpinScrubs grooms the carpet fibers from all sides for deeper cleaning. For stubborn stains or high traffic areas the Clean Surge feature sends an extra blast of cleaning solution into the stain by press of a button on the handle. When cleaning is complete, release the trigger and the SteamVac forces hot air into the cleaning path so you can do a few dry strokes over the stain.

The Hoover SteamVac has two separate water tanks – top tank holds clean hot water with detergent and lower tank holds the dirty solution picked up from the carpet.
