Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Upright Bagless Pet Vacuum Cleaner

The Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Upright Bagless Pet Vacuum Cleaner is a powerful bagless vacuum that does well on carpet as well as hard surfaces. Bissell has specifically designed this vacuum to target pet hair by incorporating SuctionChannel technology that allows for edge-to-edge cleaning.

In many vacuums, the suction only occurs on one edge of the brush. The Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Upright Bagless Pet Vacuum Cleaner uses suction on both edges to lift pet hair no matter where it is located.

As a bagless vacuum, this Bissell Pet Hair Eraser vacuum model features a removable dirt canister that also includes pet hair suction features. It uses a unique spooling technology to wrap hair into the canister. This, then needs to be removed by hand to fully eliminate it from the vacuum.

The Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Upright Bagless Pet Vacuum Cleaner can easily go from hard to soft surfaces with a generous seven manual height settings. You’ll be able to hone right in on those surface heights you are looking to target. You can get that deep down clean without any limitations on this vacuum’s capabilities.

This vacuum also includes a long 30 foot cord, which will give you plenty of reach around your home. It is also easy to maneuver with swivel steering included in the head of the device. At 18 lb., this vacuum is hefty, but its power compensates for the added bulk.


Suction is where the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Upright Bagless Pet Vacuum Cleaner really excels. It has an integral 8.5 amp motor that uses two-stage cyclonic technology to lift dirt, dust and debris from any surface in your home. This vacuum digs down deep to get trapped pet hair and dust particles to leave your home fresh and clean after its use.

You’ll also appreciate the dual filtration system of the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser vacuum. It features a Smart Seal Allergen System with Febreze Pet Odor Eliminator to trap allergens as well as pet odors from your home. These filters can be cleaned and reused.

There is also an extension wand attached to the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Upright Bagless Pet Vacuum Cleaner. This allows you to reach up high or even down low and get into those hard to reach spots to clean. The wand extends directly from the vacuum and packs away conveniently when not in use.


​The ​Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Upright Bagless Pet Vacuum Cleaner doesn't technically come with any accessories, and this is both a plus and a minus. We'd obviously love to see some useful accessories, especially at this price point.

However, this vacuum packs a lot of what would normally be "attachments" into the vacuum cleaner. For example, the Specialized Pet Tools with Quick Release Wand is really handy, and comes attached to the vacuum.


​The Bissell Pet Hair Eraser is on the higher end of the price scale when it comes to vacuum cleaners. ​For what this Bissell pet hair eraser vacuum provides, though, it is reasonably priced, especially when compared to other vacuums in the same class. 

What We Like

There was plenty to rave about with this Bissell Pet Hair Eraser vacuum including its edge-to-edge suction which gives the vacuum more power when cleaning. There is no need to go over an area several times as this full-edge cleaning suction picks up dirt and dust on the first pass.

We also thought the quick release wand was extremely convenient as it is there when you need it, without a lot of fuss to get it extended and operational.

This Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Upright Bagless Pet Vacuum Cleaner’s focus on pet hair is apparent. It features a tangle-free brushroll that eliminates hair from collecting on the brush and having to be cut away. This saves you time as you’ll never have to manually clean the brush to keep the vacuum working properly.

We also appreciated the allergen and pet odor filtration system that help to keep your home cleaner and fresher by eliminating allergens and pet odors effectively.

What We Don't Like

​Many consumers have reported in other Bissell pet vacuum reviews that the canister can be quite messy to clean. We wouldn't got this far, but we can see how that can be the case, depending on what you've cleaned up.

You have to use your hand to reach into the canister and untangle the pet hair that has accumulated. While this can be on the dirty side, it is a small issue when you consider how well and how much pet hair the vacuum is able to pick up. Also, we didn't find that it got tangled very often.

We also would have like to see this vacuum automatically adjust for the surface height. But, allowing for seven different options gives you plenty of versatility to match your current floor height as well as any future surface heights you may add.


  • Messy to empty
  • Manual surface height adjustment

Final Thoughts

Overall, we felt the ​Bissell Pet Hair ​Vacuum Cleaner is an extremely effective vacuum for pet hair cleaning. It is very durable and can withstand the demands of cleaning your home with ease. Don’t hesitate to invest in this marvel of a vacuum as it offers all the capabilities you need to keep your home clean and fresh.
