Bissell Hard Floor Expert Bagless Canister Vacuum 1154 Features

A few features stand out in this Bissell model. As long as you use this vacuum according to the instructions, it should give you several years of use.

Rotating Bristles

The air generated by the motor and pushed along the flexible tubing rotates bristles in the vacuum’s head. The bristles help push larger pieces of dirt, debris and hair into the vacuum. Because the bristles rotate using air and not a belt, it saves space in the vacuum by removing the need for a large, powerful motor. The limitation on this design means you can’t vacuum carpets well at all. However, if you just have hard floors in your place, this vacuum remains a good option.

Swivel Steering

Swivel steering in the head lets the nozzle move easily under and around furniture. You still have to bend down to reach underneath the bed or dining room table, but you don’t have to struggle with your vacuum to accomplish this feat. The head is light enough that it moves readily so you can maneuver the machine around without a lot of effort. This makes your vacuuming chore go by faster and without using more energy than necessary.

Slim Design

The slim design makes this vacuum easy to store. It’s also lightweight as you move swiftly from one area of your floor to the next. There is no more struggling to lug the vacuum around your entire apartment. Simply pick up the vacuum with the handle and carry it or pull it along the floor thanks to rubber, nonmarking wheels. This Bissell model won’t scratch your floors thanks to the wheels with felt treads.

Easy Emptying

The tank empties when you unlatch a few plastic hinges and then turn the tank into a trash bag. You don’t need to figure out how to unfold a bag, attach the bag to each end or struggle with unnecessary steps. Just unlatch, empty the canister and return to vacuuming.

Additional Tools

Bissell include some additional tools so you can take your cleaning to a new level. A dusting tool removes dirt from your flat surfaces, such as those on a table, counter, dresser, bookshelf and pet bed. A crevice tool increases the power of the suction to get spaces adjacent to walls that the main vacuum head can’t reach. The telescoping extension wand reaches to your ceiling and along the drapes. The low-pile carpet tool gives you a way to vacuum your area rugs or short carpet.
