What You Should Know About the Perfect Sweep Turbo
As a rechargeable sweeper, the Bissell 28806 uses a nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) battery pack. The battery, when fully charged, contains 7.2 volts of power, and it should give you up to 60 minutes of cleaning time. Before using the Perfect Sweep Turbo for the first time, instructions say you’ll have to charge the battery for at least 16 hours without interruption.
While the Perfect Sweep Turbo is designed to get into different spots and areas of the house, you might need to convert this sweeper into a handheld device to get into smaller areas. This sweeper’s detachable handle feature can be used by simply depressing a clip button and then pulling out the entire handle.
Bissell 28806 vs Bissell 2880A: What’s the Difference?
The Perfect Sweep Turbo is available in 2 versions – an older model (or the Bissell 2880A) and a newer version (or the 28806). What’s the difference between the two? Here’s the most noticeable.
The older version is a “3-brush system,” the newer model isn’t. Meaning, there are a total of 3 brush rolls that pick up dirt as you go – a long one, and two smaller edge brushes located at the two corners in front. In theory, these edge brushes should pick up dirt on edges and corners easily. The newer version doesn’t have these two edge brushes.
Also, there’s a difference in weight. The Bissell 2880A is heavier at 6.3 pounds, and the 28806 weighs 4 pounds.
