Being Amazon’s Choice for “upright vacuum cleaner”, the BISSELL Swivel Pet Upright Vacuum Cleaner weighs 16 pounds. At $119.99 with free shipping, it is affordable.
Its triple action brush roll + scatter free technology maximizes pet hair pickup, even if it’s fixed in place. Swivel steering makes cleaning around furniture and obstacles easy.
On top of that, its edge-to-edge cleaning feature gets closer to walls and corners with each pass. It also includes specialized pet tools like the pet hair corner tool and pet turbo eraser tool.
With a dirt cup capacity of 1 liter, it can hold lots of dirt and stains. It's easy to assemble out of the box. There are no hand controls, such as incline, power, and cord retraction. They are all pedals you can operate with one foot. You can't beat the price for the features.
While you can't pick it up with one finger, if you can handle a gallon of milk then you'll find it nice and light. Just adjust the deck height, and you’ll have no problems with it snagging or having lots of resistance on a medium to deep pile carpet.
Since there are no hand controls, the incline, power, and cord retraction are all pedals you can operate with one foot. The wheels are rubberized to roll on a hard floor, so it moves nice and smoothly without clanking and screwing up your floor.
The suction is very surprising for a vacuum its size. When you get it setup, it almost looks like a toy, but get going and it will get the job done. It does a fantastic job picking up both dust and debris, and it thoroughly cleans the edges.
Its swivel motion is easy to maneuver, and all you have to do is turn your wrist and you can run it right along the baseboards, where it sucks up the dirt and debris.
So, if you want an affordable and edge-to-edge vacuum cleaner, the BISSELL Swivel Pet Upright Vacuum Cleaner will get the job done.
