Bissell 2746A ICONpet Pro Features and Specifications
Bissell 2746A ICONpet PRO weighs 7 pounds (~3.2 kg) in the stick vacuum cleaner mode, with most of the weight is on the floor. Thanks to its lightweight design, relatively strong suction, easy maintenance, Bissell 2746A ICONpet PRO may be easily used even by elderly people and kids (kids under the supervision of adults, of course).
Bissell 2746A ICONpet Pro features 10.5 inches (~26.7 cm) wide cleaning path, allowing the user to quickly clean a relatively large area.
The unit is powered by a 25V lithium battery which requires ~4 hours to charge completely. Suction is created by a high-efficiency motor that spins up to 55k RPM, and offers good suction, especially in the Max suction mode.
The battery can be recharged by directly plugging the charger in the battery, or by using a rather convenient wall mount which doubles as a charging station and storage station for both the vacuum itself and for additional cleaning tools.
Bissell 2746A ICONpet Pro also features three suction modes, designed for maximum suction but with the reduced runtime, for balanced suction/runtime operation, and the quietest mode which emphasizes runtime and low noise.
Fingertip controls are easy to use and allow the user to quickly adjust the suction as required.
The main cleaning head features a brushroll with bristles designed for picking up the dirt from various surfaces, but the Bissell 2746A ICONpet Pro also comes with an additional brushroll optimized for sensitive bare floors.
Also, the main cleaner head features Tangle-free technology, helping with the brushroll maintenance.
Thanks to the lightweight design and swivel neck, Bissell 2746A ICONpet Pro is a rather maneuverable unit, allowing the user to easily clean around most common floor objects and obstacles.
Also, the low profile of the main cleaner head allows the user to vacuum under most beds and sofas. Strong LED headlights help with the cleaning in low light conditions and help in spotting the dirt, especially on bare floors.
Note: the brushroll cannot be turned off, but it is gentle and can be used on most of the bare floors. However, for sensitive wooden and similar floors, a bare floor brushroll is recommended (it comes with Bissell 2746A ICONpet Pro by default).
The so-called "Mess-Free Dirt Tank" also features a "Clean Slide Technology", is transparent, allowing the user to see the amount and type of vacuumed dirt.
The dirt cup capacity is 0.4 liters and perhaps it could be larger, but it can be easily emptied in the trashcan without the user ever touching the dirt.
Bissell 2746A ICONpet PRO comes with the so-called "SmartSeal Allergen System" preventing the dirty air from escaping the unit before it is thoroughly filtered and released out.
Air filtration is very good, which is very important for the vacuum cleaner intended even for people having pets. However, Bissell doesn't claim the exact HEPA level of the Bissell 2746A ICONpet PRO vacuum.
Air filtration is based on the combination of cyclonic action and mechanical air filters.
Bissell 2746A ICONpet PRO comes with a pair of washable air filters, sponge pre-motor air filter and pleated post-motor air filter, decreasing maintenance costs.
After washing the air-filters with warm water, be sure to thoroughly air dry the air filters before assembling them back into the unit.
Note: Bissell 2746A ICONpet PRO is an easy-to-use and maintain vacuum cleaner, but when it arrives, be sure to read the Owner's Guide thoroughly in order to get accustomed to your new vacuum cleaner.
Bissell 2746A ICONpet PRO Cleaning Tools and Accessories
Additional cleaning tools include Flexible Crevice Tool, Pet Dusting Brush, Motorized Turbo Brush Tool, and LED-Lighted Crevice Tool + Dusting Brush.
- Flexible Crevice Tool is a long and narrow cleaning tool that flexes (up to the point, of course), allowing the user to reach and clean areas like gaps, crevices, seat gaps, edges, corners, and similar.
- Pet Dusting Brush ensures thorough cleaning of pet hair, dander, dust, and other debris from bare surfaces, low-pile carpets, stairs, upholstery, and similar. Any hair, lint, and fibers that get caught around the bristles, the users can easily remove.
- Motorized Turbo Brush Tool is an excellent tool for cleaning smaller carpeted areas, stairs, pet beds, and similar. However, for gentle surfaces, the users should use Pet Dusting Brush. Motorized Turbo Brush Tool is not a maintenance-free tool, requiring the user to periodically clean the brushroll from tangled hair and lint.
- LED-Lighted Crevice Tool + Dusting Brush is a rather versatile 2-in-1 cleaning tool combining a relatively short crevice tool and dusting brush, combined with a LED light on top of the crevice tool, which aids in cleaning low-light areas.
Bissell 2746A ICONpet PRO comes with a 3-year limited warranty.
Also, Bissell 2746A ICONpet PRO comes with several additional features like a parking brake, allowing the user to leave it leaning on the wall, carrying handle, allowing the user to easily carry vacuum around, even up and down the stairs, etc.
