    BISSELL 47R51 Dislikes:

  • The biggest complaint about this BISSELL handheld vacuum 47R51 is the vents. The vents are on the sides, the exhaust comes out from both sides, and it blows dirt around, especially while cleaning something like ashes on hard surfaces. You might want to use the attached hose to solve this issue.

  • Noisy like other vac.
  • It’s a small hand vac, so it’s dirt cup fills up fast.
  • Does not comes with a wall mount to hang the unit on wall.
  • Like some vacs, it is dusty to clean the filter.

For its price tag, this Bissell hand vac is a good small vacuum for quick pick ups and pet hair. It is useful if you want an affordable, portable vacuum for cleaning windowsill, furniture, stairs, upholstery, etc.
