Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

It’s also much cheaper (typically about $90), and it weighs only 16 pounds. It has a few of the useful features we like, such as a cord clip, a built-in measuring cup, and a two-in-one tank design that makes cleaning easy. It’s also particularly simple to assemble.
Highs: Cleaning performance was good.
Priced at less than $100, the BISSELL PowerLifter is a budget-friendly option.
Light weight, easy to maneuver, effective and affordably priced.
Among the things I like most about the Power-Lifter Power-Brush 1622 is that it’s very easy to operate, and light in weight. The most conventional full-sized carpet cleaner weighs about 20 pounds or more prior to addition of water.
The best part of this Bissell PowerLifter 1622 is that it is very affordable. At under 100 bucks, this is a rare upright carpet cleaner that you can grab right away back home.

What reviewers didn't like

But it doesn’t have a hose tool, so you can use it only on carpet. We think most people would be happy with this machine, provided they need only a carpet cleaner and not something that can clean upholstery, stairs, or car interiors too.
Lows: Noise performance was good for this model. - Drying performance was fair.
This cleaner is lacking in tools that help you get to hard-to-reach areas.
Doesn't have the upholstery hosepipe or a way of connecting it, and can't be fitted with the accessories to clean up upholstery or carpets.
The downside on performance side is that, the water tank is a little bit small (0.75 Gallon) when compared with other high-rated.
