Bissell Natural Sweep Manual Floor Sweeper 5 "Should have bought one years ago" Mrs Blyth 13 July 2020 This machine is a marvel. Completely unlike the ones I remember from the '60's, it picks up both forward and backward. It works on rugs and hard floors too. It never dumps its contents on the floor just as you think you have finished. It is great for picking up dog fur on carpets and general debris anywhere. Sturdily made with metal handle.
