Every now and then something really powerful comes in a small, almost unimpressive package. That is certainly the case with the Bissell Easy Vac Vacuum. On first appearance it might not impress you since it is small, skinny and less than 10 pounds in weight, but turn it on and its efficiency and convenience may actually blow your mind.
The Easy Vac 3130 design incorporates some features that are found on full sized modern vacuum cleaners, but it comes in a small package that is easy to tote around the house, drag up and down stairs, or even take out to a vehicle. According to the Pet Vacuum Guy, the features that make it impressive include:
- Bagless design
- 800 watts of power
- 2 rotating brushes
- On-board tools
- Filtering system
- Compatible on any type of flooring
- Lifetime Washable Foam Filter
800 watts is considerably less power than you would find on a full sized vacuum, but it is a nice amount of power for a small featherweight vacuum. The two brushes rotate around one another which make the system more efficient at sweeping up dirt and other debris from the floor.
You can’t expect such a small vacuum to handle large vacuuming jobs and the smaller head size won’t allow it to cover a lot of floor space with each pass, but it is perfect for a variety of other jobs, including but not limited to:
- Sweeping inside closets and other small areas where a full sized vacuum doesn’t fit easily.
- Sweeping up and down stairways so you don’t have to lug a heavy vacuum up and down.
- Sweeping bathroom floors and other small rooms when on-the-spot clean up is needed.
In fact, anytime you have a small mess that you want to clean up right away, it is more convenient to whip out the Bissell Easy Vac than it is to pull out a full sized vacuum. When you don’t need a lot of power but need to get something done fast, the Easy Vac is the perfect tool to have on hand. Especially if you are looking for the best handheld vacuum for cars.
The bagless design is highly sought after today because most people don’t want to waste time and money finding, purchasing and changing vacuum bags. The Easy Vac has a simple dirt canister that pulls out to be emptied then pops right back into place.
Many lightweight or stick vacuums don’t include any type of on-board tools, but the Easy Vac does give you something in this area. You won’t find all the tools that might come on board a full sized vacuum, but Bissell does include a dusting brush and crevice tool. There is also a hose that stretches out to get corners, along floor boards, or the crevices that run along stairways.
It’s OK for tiles and bare flooring but may scratch hardwood. There are better vacuums for hardwood floors in the market.
There are also a couple filters that help clean up the air some as you vacuum, though again this is not nearly as advanced as the filtering systems now included on full size vacuums.
The Bissell Easy Vac is not going to keep your entire home dirt and dust free, but it will become a valuable tool that you take out almost daily to keep your home as clean as possible. There are times when you just dread hauling out that heavy vacuum cleaner for small jobs, and now you don’t have to do that!
