    Is there an advertisement flaw or do the models had different brush rotating rpms? All the 1785a’s ads show a brush rotation of 3500 rpm where as other models promote brush speed of 3000 rpms.

      Hi Liz, where you saw the 1785a’s ads that showed the 3500 rpm? Or could you provide us with a screenshot of this or the URL where you saw this? Thanks.

    Hi

    Here in KSA, the Bissell crosswave model available is 1713
    Kindly clarify what is the difference between this model and 1785X

    Thankyou

    Just to clarify two things – there’s a Sam’s Club model that doesn’t list the model number, and it comes with 3 multi surface rollers, 2 wood rollers, and multiple cleaning liquids.

    The Bed Bath and Beyond one lists that it only comes with 1 multi and 1 wood (rather than 2 multi), according to their website. Does this mean that one multi is pre-installed? Or did they modify the model?

    The best deal for getting one of these seems to be if you can get a 20% BBB coupon going OR if you’re a Sam’s member, get their version. But they don’t list what model# it is (I expected 1785W like WM lists but SC doesn’t list it and the specs don’t match).

    Can the Bissell Crosswave model 1785A be used to vacuum only? I received it as a gift, but I don’t always want to mop when I just want to vacuum.

      Hi Gina, it can be used to vacuum only on hard floors and low pile rugs. Do not expect it will function as strong as a normal vacuum would. It is recommended to use it with the wet function and not just as a dry vacuum.

    Thank you for comparing and explaining the differences in the model numbers for the Bissell CrossWave Pet Pro Floor and Carpet Cleaner With Wet-Dry Vacuum. I was wondering what the different models meant and you explained it very well. This is the kind of customer service I’m looking for and really appreciate.

    Not sure if this is actually a reply or new question slot. But I’d like to see a comparison between Model 2304p (now offered at Costco as Crosswave Premier) and Model 2305 at BBB. I can’t anything on 2304p other than Costco’s abbreviated description. Thx.

      Hi MJ,
      As far as I know, the Bissell 2304p is a newly released model exclusive to Costco, it’s the same machine as the 2305 except for the color and included accessories.

        Yep here is the difference from what I see:

        BBB 2305
        Includes:
        2 multi-surface pet brush roll
        2 wood floor brush rolls
        2 BISSELL Multi-Surface Pet Formula with Febreze Freshness 8 oz. formula samples
        2 BISSELL Wood Formula 8 oz. samples
        1 Rinse tray
        3-year limited manufacturer’s warranty.

        Costco 2304p:
        Includes:
        (1) 8 oz Pet Multi-Surface Formula w/ Febreeze Freshness;
        (1) 8 oz Wood Floor Formula;
        (1) Multi-Surface Brush Roll;
        (1) Wood Floor Brush Roll;
        (2) Pet Multi-Surface Brush Roll;
        (1) Rinse & Clean Out Storage Tray.
        holder that holds two rollers (clips onto docking tray).
        3-year limited manufacturer’s warranty.

        $25 difference with the BBB 20% coupon, so Costco still comes out cheaper and in my opinion a nicer blue color.

    Hello,
    Just bought one from Costco, thought I’d share exactly what was included. 2340p costco model comes with (1) 8 oz Pet Multi-Surface Formula w/ Febreeze Freshness; (1) 8 oz Wood Floor Formula; (1) Multi-Surface Brush Roll; (1) Wood Floor Brush Roll; (2) Pet Multi-Surface Brush Roll; docking tray (not charging, has a cord); holder that clips onto docking tray and holds two rollwrs. There’s not really much of a sparkle, just regular silver color and a navy blue.

      Hi Kimberlee, I cant find the model you mentioned at samsclub.com, would you please share the link? I just find the model 1785V there.
      About the Crosswave Premier, Heather just bought one from Costco and listed what’s included, you can read the comment.
      If you going to buy one from Sam’s club, would you please share what’s included after getting? Thanks.

    Some people wonder if the CrossWave can be used to dry vacuum.
    I did my research and read reviews on this concern, some users reported that they used the CrossWave as a dry vacuum before mopping, and did not have any problems.

    But if you want to get the answer from Bissell, they would tell you that:
    the CrossWave is intended to be used with both the wet and dry function at the same time, and it is recommended to use the wet and dry function at the same time when using it on hard floors and rugs.

    Can you tell me if the Model 2305 (Pet Pro Plus at BBB) and the 2304P (Premiere) have the auto clean function?

      Hi Kelvin, both of them have the Rinse & Clean Storage Tray that helps clean the machine out after use and store the brush rolls.

    Cannot find replacement parts for Bissell crosswise cordless max 2554. Is this an obsolete model that we paid dearly for in December? It is leaving very dirty streaks and stains and puddles on the floor and we are wondering if it should need replacement parts this soon. The machine worked great for 2 or 3 cleanings and has not since. Filters for 2554 are not online. Can any other model number be substituted? Overall, we are not very happy with the results of this expensive floor cleaner.

    Just bought the 1785 green Crosswave and found a Matrix sheet online stating the dirty water holding tank holds about 5 oz more and weighs about 5 # less than the blue model sold at Walmart. So glad I got the green one.
