Bissell is another well-known brand for making dependable and affordable machines. One of the main strengths of this model is that it can tackle what other devices can’t. Namely, long hair of pets that tend to block other pet vacuums.
Whatever you’re doing: cleaning floors, curtains, stairs, or furniture, you can trust this product to lift away every stray hair.
Tailored to cat hair
Bissell made a revolutionary new type of vacuum head that maintains reliability while also being maneuverable. It uses a swivel-type head that is easy-to-use even in the tight spaces that pet hair tends to gather in.
It has a vacuum head that uses an anti-tangle brush roll that manages longer hair much easier. This is the machine’s greatest strength since other machines easily get stuck full of cat hair. Therefore, the machines become practically worthless if you use them on the wrong kinds of hair. At the end of the day, you’re buying this vacuum to clean your home.
It is also good for reducing allergens, in that it uses a great deal of technology to minimize the amount of residual dust it emits while working. This is better in comparison to other models who can leave a room with a thin layer of dust after cleaning.
But pretty pricey
The Bissell Pet Hair Eraser 1650A is on the higher side of pet vacuums price-wise.
While it isn’t overly heavy, it is not light either – coming in at 18 pounds.
It is built for cleaning up after the tougher pet hair. Of course, while Bissell specializes in tough pet hair, it does not do such a good job for more moderate types of fur and dander. The same goes for the heaviest types of debris like kitty litter.
The cord is not automatically retractable, and you have to wind it up by hand.
It is certainly on the more expensive side. It is definitely one of the best vacuums for cat hair, but it is also one of the most expensive.
Bissell delivers, best features
This is one of the most well built vacuums on the list. Its tangle-free brush roll and hand-free emptying function make it easy to use. Another big benefit is the fact that it is more allergen-friendly than other vacuum cleaners. This is due to the Smart-Seal Allergen System which removes more allergens from the air.
The drawback is that the machine is built for commonly problematic cat hair rather than long hair. So if you have a cat that has longer hair that causes problems for standard vacuum cleaners, this option stands out.
Overall, it does have its flaws but it does exceed qualities in the things that like durability, advance filitration, easy to clean, and a very solid pick.
