Bissell 5770 Healthy Home Bagless Upright Vacuum Review


After our Hoover Windtunnel s3765 (but before our Dyson vacuums) we had a Bissell 5770 Healthy Home Bagless Upright Vacuum. At the time we were growing tired of the Hoover Windtunnel since it was losing the suction that made it good initially. Once we saw the normally 350$ Bissell 5770 Healthy Home Vacuum on sale for just under 200$ on eBay we decided to take a shot since the Bissell 5770 Healthy Home vacuum review we read have been positive about this particular vacuum.

We've owned it for a few years and the suction has not subsided. It may not have the suction power of a Dyson but keep in mind you are paying half the price or less than that. For us it was used daily for a time and in turn was cleaned and emptied all the time too, so if you take care of it you will get long lasting power. Emptying the Bissell 5770 can take some getting used to because you will need to use both hands, but the reviews of dust and dirt spilling all over users when they empty seems a little unlikely to us (even first using it). If you empty it often you will have no troubles. Also the brush features are handy and won't rip your carpet up since the brush is not super long.

The light on the vacuum proves useful when vacuuming in the basement (or anywhere dark). Post-vacuuming it also smells fresh and the vacuum runs relatively quiet, for a high-powered vacuum. The Bissell 5770 Home Healthy Bagless is a heavy machine, no doubt. It is hard for my lady to lug around up and down stairs. But when the Bissell 5770 gets to wherever needs to be vacuumed, it gets the job done. The weight actually helps press down and suck out more dirt / dust deep within a carpet.
