I already have two Bissell's so buying this one was no issue because I trusted the brand.
I own a Frenchie who absolutely hates vacuums and I am pretty sure it is to do with the pitch of the sounds. The front of my Kirby has been wrecked as she can pick it up to chew and drag while I try to use it. My Crosswave is different. She doesn't like it, but I can actually use it easier. Same with my old Bissell Pet Carpet Cleaner.
Now I have this beautiful machine!
It produces serious cleaning and dries lovely. You have two choices as to the type of clean you want, so I wait for the grandkids to go to school and get to work. The head of the machine is a lot bigger than my old one so I get a lot more done. Best still.. you can FEEL it working, so it feels more satisfying... even though you are doing housework.
