Heather I also have a Bissell "cleanview" 12 amp, 7 cleaning levels, slide lock to empty container.hmz819 said:No it is bagless and I too have a cat that leaves hair everywhere. No clogs yet (had it since Aug) and it is very easy to dump the chamber. Slide a lever pull out dump and put back in.
LOL - DH found out the hard way that you can NOT dump it from top of trash can - what a mess he had to clean up :lol:Cinsmom said:Yeah, I wondered how far she was from the lid of the trash when she was dumping it, but I figured she knew more about it than I did.
I read on their site that the handheld only has a 6 minute run time - how long does it take to recharge it? I'd love a handheld for my stairs and a few spots that a reg vac are hard to reach withCooper2mom said:Sue I have also been curious about the Dyson. I've been holding back a bit merely based on the price. I was very interested in the handheld as Cooper drags in a lot of leaves and such into our sunroom. So I broke down and bought it. It's the Root6 model I believe (it's the only hand held they have.) But based on this little powerful unit, I'll be running up to my local Target to buy the big one! It's wonderful. This handheld is particularly great to run around, pick up odds and ends and then you're done. When I sweep the room Cooper thinks it's a game and it turns into quite the ordeal. The little vacuum quells that!
So anyway.....long winded way of saying I'd buy one (and will very soon.)
