Bissell 3061 Featherweight Features and Specifications
Bissell 3061 Featherweight is a cordless, bagless vacuum cleaner powered by the onboard 10.8V battery. The battery requires 4-4.5h to recharge fully, and it stores enough energy to power the vacuum cleaner for up to 20 minutes, during which the Bissell 3061 Featherweight is able to cover and cleaner a relatively large area.
The unit is rated at 150 Watts, which is good rated power for the unit in its class.
The main cleaner head features a multi-floor brushroll which is able to pick up dirt from both bare floors, low-pile, and high-pile carpets.
But, Bissell 3061 Featherweight also features the brushroll On/Off control button, allowing the user to turn Off the brushroll, protecting the very sensitive floors and preventing the brushroll from scattering around certain types of dirt (cat litter, pet's dry food and similar) under certain circumstances, when vacuuming the bare floors.
The cleaning path of the main cleaner head is 10 inches (25.4 cm) wide, allowing the user to clean open floor surfaces quickly.
Thanks to the very low weight of the vacuum cleaner in the cordless stick configuration of only 5.8 pounds (~2.6 kg) and the full swivel neck, the Bissell 3061 Featherweight is a rather maneuverable vacuum, allowing the user to easily navigate surfaces even with typical object and obstacles found at homes.
However, the main cleaner head lacks LED headlights and tangle-free technology to prevent pet and human hair from tangling around the brushroll.
Bissell 3061 Featherweight features a translucent dirt bin with a capacity of 0.45 liters, which is large enough for quick home cleanups and regular cleaning tasks.
The dirt bin can be emptied quickly - due to its capacity, it is recommended to empty the dirt bin after each cleaning task.
Air filtration is good but not excellent - the Bissell doesn't state the exact HEPA air filtration level, but this model doesn't feature true HEPA air filtration.
Nonetheless, as said before, the air filtration is - good. It is based on the washable air filter screen and washable air filter.
It is not required to clean air filters after each use, but if possible, tap the air filter onto the inner part of the trashcan to release small dirt particles and help with the airflow.
The filter screen and air filter are washable using warm water. After washing, they must be fully dried before assembling back into the unit.
Note: Bissell 3061 Featherweight is a very simple-to-use and maintain vacuum cleaner, but when it arrives, be sure to read the Owner's Guide or manual in order to get accustomed to your new cordless vacuum cleaner.
Bissell 3061 Featherweight is designed as a self-standing unit, which is of great help when making quick breaks or when storing the unit.
Although the unit is relatively stable in the upright position, don't let the pets and kids play around it - a gentle push is all that is required to force the unit to fall down.
But, Bissell 3061 Featherweight comes with a foldable handle - the handle is foldable both ways (forward, backward), allowing the user to slide the unit (handle folded forward) under tables, chairs, and similar objects, and to make it more stable when the unit is stored or when charging (handle folded backward).
Bissell 3061 Featherweight is a 2-in-1 unit that can be quickly converted from a cordless stick vacuum cleaner configuration to a handheld cordless vacuum cleaner configuration and back.
When the unit is used as a handheld unit, there are three available cleaning tools:
- Wide Mouth Nozzle (just a handheld vacuum cleaner) is used for general cleaning in handheld mode,
- Crevice Tool is a long and narrow cleaning tool, which allows the user to clean corners, edges, and other narrow spaces that are usually hard to reach and clean,
- Upholstery Tool is used for vacuuming various types of dirt, including pet hair, lint, and fibers, from beds, sofas, upholstered surfaces, and similar.
Available cleaning tools can come in very handy, especially in homes with pets and kids.
Bissell 3061 Featherweight features a 1-year limited warranty.
Long Story Short: If You are looking for a lightweight and affordable convertible cordless vacuum cleaner, consider Bissell 3061 Featherweight - it has relatively good suction, a good battery, it can be quickly recharged, the brushroll can be turned Off/On, washable air filters, etc.
