BISSELL Pet Hair Eraser : Astounding performance at collecting cat fur!

Great value and effective cleaner, especially for pet hair on upholstery. As a cat owner, i have a daily struggle to clean up the fur they shed and the cat litter they spread around. This item is ideal for picking up the mess. The vacuum comes with three heads, the best of which is the powered roller. This is very effective at cleaning furniture and carpets of cat hair, something which my vintage dyson dc07 fails to achieve to anything like the same level. It’s also great for general cleaning. The suction doesn’t seem very strong, but this is deceptive as it’s a great cleaner and soon gets filled up. If the suction were stronger, cleaning upholstery would become awkward. Another point to note is how light this cordless machine is. My partner suffers from a weak back and is unable to use the old dyson without suffering the next day, but this proves no problem.

The best pet hair hoover ever.

Powerful, useful, pet~tastic and easy to use. . Powerful, useful, pet~tastic and easy to use. The bissell 1987e pet hair eraser does what it says on the box ~ its great removing pet hairs ~ our dog’s pet hairsthe clip on, sweeping, rotary brush is powered from the main body and turns by electricity and not through the suction. This leaves all the suction power to suck the hairs and rubbish into the see through dust body. This makes for a very effective sweeping unit. The other tools are also useful, getting into crevices and going over sofas and such. I happily give this cordless hair eraser five stars, a very useful household tool especially if you have cats or dogs. I would love to have seen some kind of holder / charger for it. The main body is quite heavy, there are three tools and the charger. This all takes up a shelf in a cupboard. Here are the specifications for the BISSELL Pet Hair Eraser:

  • 14.4V NiMH battery up to 15 min of run time
  • Motorized Brush Roll Foot-for more powerful suction and a deeper clean
  • Felt-on motorized foot supports added suction and captures more pet hair and embedded dirt
  • Recharge in less than 5 hours
  • Accessory Kit included: Detachable motorized foot, crevice tool and upholstery nozzle

Astounding performance at collecting cat fur. Well-done bissell with this onethe cleaner comes well-packed in a decent box. Once out of the box, what you’ve got is a neat-looking cordless, bag-less, handheld vacuum cleaner, plus a set of cleaning attachments. The attachments look like miniature versions of the attachments you’d get with a normal size vacuum cleaner. They attach and detach without trouble, and stay attached when the cleaner in in use. It’s a big fluffy ragdoll cat which, if you know ragdoll cats, are all fluff and not much cat. This cat generates plenty of fluff, which gets everywhere, so we were very keen to give the vacuum cleaner a try. Our reaction to our first trial was “wow” it picked up a lot more fluff than anything else we’ve tried, including our rather expensive meile cylinder vacuum cleaner, and left carpets noticeably cleaner that our other vacuum cleaners ever managed. We have no idea how it’s doing this, but it does it and we are glad of it.

I hadn’t twigged that this was a dustbuster operating under an assumed identityhad dustbusters years ago and always found them pretty good – this is an improvement in every way. Light, reasonable battery life and recharges quickly – and it workshave found the powered head the most useful tool. Though this does drain the battery more quickly. This could be improved with the addition of a charging station/tool storage, but then i’d have to give it 6 *.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Pet owner essential
  • Very good for pet hair!
  • i wasn’t disappointed it is great

Best cordless i’ve purchased. . Replaced the one i had (well known one on tvs)this does the job. Bought another for a friend a few days later. Only one problem,have tried to register the vacuum a few times online but each time the same reply’the model number is incorrect ‘both on the american site and the british one. Finally gave up trying to register.

This has been a lifesaver in our house with dogs and cats. Great for getting hair off cushions and sofas as well as for use on the stairs.

    Excellent for picking up cat hair if you use the turbo brush.

        Hair hoovers over the years but this one is brilliant – easy to empty. I have had several pet hair hoovers over the years but this one is brilliant – easy to empty, you can even remove the brush and very powerfulmy only concern is that one review said they were unable to get a replacement filter so hoping i do not damage mine – otherwise great.

      This is great for quick daily touchups of the furniture and floor. With 2 cats, this is great for quick daily touchups of the furniture and floor – means i only have to do a full vacuum once a week as all other visible debris and fur can be tackled daily. Very compact so i just store it behind the armchair so it’s always within easy reach.

        I have a border collie who sheds twice a year and leaves every surface of my house covered in dog hair. I broke my leg a few months ago and getting the hoover out is a real ordeal so i really needed something easy that i can use to clean after her. I looked at a number of cordless handheld hoovers and this one had the best reviews for pet hair (which is my main concern). So i bought it and i’m very happy with this purchase – i let the dog sleep on the bed every night and then i use the bissell to hoover her pet hair up and it does so very nicely so i am very happy with it. I’m even thinking of getting a second one for downstairs :).

      It only takes a few moments to suck these little messes up. After reading most of the previous comments and taking into consideration the very negative ones, i decided to buy one. What this unit is not, is a heavy duty cleaner and i didn’t expect it to be. If you are fed up with crumbs on the kitchen worktops after the family have had toast or perhaps crisps on the furniture and around the cushions and floor – this is device is for you. With the small corner attachment, or cushion attachment, it only takes a few moments to suck these little messes up. The suction is ample for these jobs. The issue that has been raised, regarding an average of 15 minutes of battery life available, should not worry anyone under these light uses – 15 min goes a log way. Other uses in these conditions might be a quick clean of curtains and blinds or around the rims of beds and a mattres. For larger tasks, the battery limitations may become a pest.

      I wasn’t disappointed it is great. Had read the reviews,so thought i would buy this model. I wasn’t disappointed it is great,i couldn’t believe just how much hair and dirt this little vac picks up. I now find i’m using this instead of my regular vac as it cleans much better.

    Purchased after much despair caused by two huge black cats we recently adopted leaving fur on absolutely everything. I couldnt be happier with the functionality of this mini vacuum, it genuinely does pick up everything, its easy to empty and clean and runs for ages on a single charge. Its all but replaced our main “big” hoover. Its very quiet and super light and portable, meaning its easy to keep on top of the constant cat fluff rather than have to haul out our clunky upright hoover every evening. It feels very high quality and i am very happy with my purchase. If i had to pick fault, its that the on/off button is on the handle, so its easy to accidentally turn it off in use.

      Great hoover, much better than expected. . This is a great little vacuum. It is far more powerful than i was expecting, and the powered brush bar helps to collect up dirt and pet hair. The battery lasts far longer than models i’ve used in the past but it doesn’t weigh any more. Whilst this won’t replace a normal cleaner (it’s much too small), its often what we turn to when just getting up a couple of hairs left behind by the dog as its always handy and so convenient. Overall a great little cleaner.

      With the motorised head this is a powerful and easy to use device. The bissell 1987e is relatively small and could easily be confused for one of those vacuum cleaners designed to be used in a car – but it has a secret trick up its sleeve – the motorised head. Without the motorised head its performance is merely adequate, and with the other attachments like the crevice device make it good at getting dirt that is hiding in hard to reach places. But with the motorised head it becomes as good as a normal mains vacuum but in a more convenient form. The total capacity of the 1987e is more limited than a traditional vacuum, and it has a limited battery life between charges, but these are easy too come to terms with. Being small the 1987e is easy to store, which means i have ended up keeping it in a more easily reachable location in the house – i’ve found it means i use it more regularly, for small jobs that i would have procrastinated over with a traditional mains cleaner. This is helped by being rechargable – as long as i’ve remembered to keep the charge topped up this is a much more convenient way of living your life than hefting around a great big machine that needs to be plugged into different sockets as you move around the house. Looks-wise bissell are onto a winner with me because black and lime green is a colour scheme i really like. I guess this is quite specific to me, and lots of people won’t love this particular combination, but i find it nice to look at. In summary – with the motorised head this is a powerful and easy to use device.

    Excellent handheld, has power power power and more power. . For a handheld vacuum this one is powerful. The battery lasts well and the tool selection is excellent. We have a lurcher dog and a bengal cat, neither shred much hair but this unit picks everything they do off rugs and chairs. Also brilliant for dust and dirt and great for use cleaning the inside of a cat. Better life is excellent, it hasn’t run out when in use so far and charges quickly. The colour of the hat ensures its easy to find as well.
