Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Bissell PowerForce Helix Bagless Upright Vacuum (Models: 12B1 & 68C7). The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.30 stars, and the price range is $47.84-$99.99.

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. Also, as the dirt container is smaller in size, the users have to make frequent emptying trips. A few users also experienced that it took more passes on hard surfaces to clean thoroughly.

Overall, the Bissell PowerForce Helix Bagless Upright vacuum cleaner comes with easy to use features and long lasting durability. This vacuum cleaner is recommended by users and comes at a very affordable price. Plus, the HEPA Media Filter makes the PowerForce Helix Turbo perfect for total home cleaning.
