Design Overview: Bissell 2254 Swivel Rewind Vacuum

The BISSELL swivel rewind pet vacuum has a modest mechanical look and features a plastic body, giving it a fragile feel overall. It stands 46 inches tall and weighs over 19 pounds, which puts it into more bigger, heavier side of vacuums. On the upside, it features a triple action brush-roll with a head adjustment dial, which works great and looks fine. Other than that, everything else seems to connect well. That being said, you would need to assemble it’s various parts before starting using it. Everything else is good. Measurements are shown in the table below:



WIDTH: 14″

DEPTH: 13″

WEIGHT: 19.19lbs

Items in the box:

Vacuum body



Dirt compartment

Turbo brush

Two pre-motor filters (Carbon & Foam)

Crevice & Upholstery tools

User manual

User maintenance + costs

The BISSELL swivel rewind pet vacuum is easy to maintain and the recurring costs aren’t actually that high. Everything from the brush-roll to dirt compartment seems to work fine. You can easily detach the brush-roll by removing screws adhering it.

 The dirt compartment is also easily removable and can be cleaned when necessary. As for the recurring costs, there are a few minor ones. First is with pre-motor filters as they are needed to be replaced overtime (around 6 months) in order to work consistently. Another is with vacuum belts, they might also need to get replaced but that depends on usability and if it is damaged or not – this is a pretty rare thing to have to repair.

Bissell Pre-Motor HEPA filters

There are two pre-motor filters available, a carbon and a foam filter. But, as mentioned above, they would need a replacement after some time. Unfortunately, there are no HEPA filters available. However, it does have a multilevel filtration system to reduce household allergies. So, even though there is no HEPA filtration system, the BISSELL swivel rewind pet vacuum still manages to do good job at reducing household allergies.

It’s definitely one of the best dirt compartments you’ll find in a vacuum right now.
