Anybody have a Dyson & if so, what do ya think of em????
Link Posted: 11/12/2007 12:59:23 PM EDT

It really sucks!

I've got one, and while my first response when my wife bought it was, "you paid HOW MUCH for a vacuum cleaner?" - I have to admit that I am really, really impressed with it, and it is by far the best vacuum I've ever used.
Link Posted: 11/12/2007 12:59:55 PM EDT
The Dyson we bought last year, really sucks. I ran over the carpet with the old vac, the stuff that the Dyson picked up was amazing. I would buy another Dyson in a heartbeat.

I have an Animal. Excellent vacuum but I have found the "animal" attachments less useful than I had imagined.
Link Posted: 11/12/2007 1:08:54 PM EDT
I tried vaccuming my wife's cat with it...did...not...work...out...well. As an animal vaccum I would say it is overrated!
Link Posted: 11/12/2007 1:09:49 PM EDT
The wife has been wanting one for over a year, but our "old" vacuum works just fine for me & best of all it's paid for

However, since we have a dog I've been looking around & can't find much info on line about how the dyson works & what makes it such a better vacuum than our Hover (upright & with a bag)

Would you purchase one again, or would you get a different model or even a different brand??

I have THE ANIMAL and it's appropriately named. It had the best Consumer Reports rating for picking up pet hair along with a Eureka "Boss" that I first borrowed from a friend. I chose the Dyson ANIMAL because I liked the bagless feature (not to mention, anything named "THE ANIMAL" is pretty cool).

After vacuuming with the "Boss" I came home with my new Dyson and to my surprise, the Dyson ANIMAL picked up a crazy amount of pet hair and debris that wasn't even visible before and that the "Boss" completely missed. I had to empty the Dyson ANIMAL canister twice!!

The Dyson ANIMAL is freakin' amazing...

True, as stated above, the attachments aren't much more functional than on any other vacuum, but I use mine simply on carpet and it serves me fine. By the way, my girlfriend gave me a coupon to Bed Bath & Beyond for 20% off, so it made the deal better. I think they routinely mail these coupons out if you just ask at the store.

I would most definitely have purchased a Dyson if I had it to do over but I might have saved the $50 premium that I spent on the "Animal" version, to be honest since, as best I can tell, it largely just has different attachments and comes with some carpet cleaning stuff

I bought the D-17 not an Animal. Works grat on pet hair any way.

Our Bed bath and beyond will price match. I found one on line $100 cheaper than the store price. Then used a 20 % coupon on top of that. 389 out the door for a 549 plus tax vacuum

DC15 The Animal Ball here. The ball is a good feature.

It's pretty good, but expensive.
Link Posted: 11/12/2007 2:24:57 PM EDT
Dyson's are the best ever!

I was sceptical at first but I bought one because I was renting a dingy studio apartment and having allergy attacks. After buying and using the Dyson instead of my old vacum I stopped having allergy issues.

+1

Look around online. I got mine for ~$420.00 through an online retailer; local brick-&-morter shops were ~$80.00 more. I do like the ball feature for the added manueverability, & the extra attachments that come w/ the animal are nice. They're expensive, so get what suits your needs. Actually the ergonomics impressed me the most: bagless, easy to empty (Just push a button & the bottom flaps open to dump the contents into waste can.), handles where you need them, lightweight. But yeah, they do have good suction power to pull stuff up out of the carpet.

i've wanted one for a long time and finally my old vacuum died with my help. (I told my wife I didn't know what happened )

She bought one on Sat. and we were both impressed with the amount of shit it pulled up. It's definitely worth the money. I wish I had broken the old one sooner.

Hehe... I love my Dyson Animal... but it did get me into trouble with the wife summer a'fore last. Below is an email I sent to some friends about it...


I've been sleeping with my dogs in my garage workshop on a cot (wife and
sis-in-law been sharing the bed for a while) and needed to get the floor
cleared up of all the dog hair.

I brought one of my wife's prized possessions into the workshop to clean the
floor (lined with scavenged carpet scraps from an office building), her
shiney purple Dyson Vacuum

It is, true to the commercials, the most effective home vacuum I've ever
seen. has a cool, clear cylinder that the air whips around like a cyclone.

Well... Reaching under the workbench to get the hair, I hear the steady hum
(quite a quiet vacuum too) interrupted by a thump, and feel a corresponding
bump go past my hand on the flexi-tube. Immediately thereafter my dogs are
barking furiously at me.

I stop.. look in the fairly empty cylinder (I'd just emptied the first load
of hair) and see a mouse whipping wildly, then pulled to the bottom. I turn
off the vacuum and look. He gets up, rather dazed and stumbled round the
plastic prison.

I turned the vac on for a sec, just to see him levitate, rotate a few times
around the tube, and drop down to the bottom. The dogs go wild. I giggle.
The mouse swoons.

So I get on my knees for a better view, and do it again. I giggle like a
sniggering school boy. The dogs are prancing round and round at the sight.

And there was was, transfixed by the sight, hammering the power button on
and off like the laboratory monkey hitting the 'free sample' button at the
Crack research lab, giggling maniacally, over and over again.

"What the H E double Toothpicks do you think you are doing with my.... IS
THAT A FRIGGIN' MOUSE?!" my wife shrieked.

I stammered... "duhuhuhuhuhu."

"Oh My God. I can't believe I married you!" as she slammed the workshop door
and stormed into the house.


Link Posted: 11/12/2007 8:48:35 PM EDT
We vacuum about once a week, and are lucky to get through a whole room without having to empty a nearly full cannister.

The thing empties in a snap, no bags, and picks up consistently until it is full.

Change from carpet to bare in a snap, and "sweep" the wood floors without a scratch.
The detachable hose and handle are great for crevaces, corners/baseboards.
Had it more than 2 years, no issues.

Best vacuum I have ever owned.

Dyson DC17 Animal here. Easily the best vacuum we have ever owned. Pet hair, and 2 cockatoos make for plenty of cleaning. The wife vacuums the whole house once a week, then does her car as well.

Be prepared to empty the cannister frequently - especially the first two times you use it.

The best part of the machine? NO smell. You know, "that smell" from running the vacuum? Never happens with the Dyson. The crap STAYS in the filter, rather than smelling it as it redistributes in the room.

I find the attachments useful. Some of our furniture is heavy, and sits within 3 inchs of the floor. The low clearance attachment allows cleaning under things like that.

The transition from upright machine to hose & wand is so slick on the DC17, it is scary. No excuse not to do the baseboards as you clean a room...

I've got their lightweight model, I forget the number.

The feature I like best is the hand vac pulls out of the handle, and the tube stretches long enough so you can clean an entire flight of stairs with it while leaving the vacuum at the bottom of the stairwell.

I have the DC14 Full Kit, which includes the powered-brush end for the wand, but a different floor attachement from the Animal.

I absolutely love it for cleaning the large carpeted areas, but I kinda wish the powered-brush wasnt vacuum-driven, as it stalls out if you try to dig into upholsetry/stair carpet too aggressively, you need a really light touch to keep it going.

Or maybe I'm doing something wrong.

I have the entry model thats the same base set up as the animal sans a few attachments

Its a great machine, but if you break any of the parts the system starts to fail,
everything is plastic push tabbed together with rubber seals

Our hose started to unravel at the handle end
Its designed to thread into a plastic part that snaps into the sliding collar
Once the hose started to unwind, the repair really required replacing the broken parts

lucky for me I am a master of improvised Liquid Nails

It's all hype for the most part. They are a good vac, but most commercial vacs will kick their ass at half the price. I bought into the hype and bought 20 of them 2 years ago. All of them were broke beyond repair in less than a year.

Hoover lightweights and sanitaire vacs cost less than $200 and kick ass and last. Only problem is lack of attachments.

Bummer. If I get one, I will be honored to continue your studies. I think the scientific world demands it. I promise to give proper credit and site your existing work should I be deemed ARFCOM publication for my continuation of the studies of hyper velocity wind chambers and impact of prolonged exposure to the species Mus musculus.

Oh my hell.... he beat me to the thread by two posts....

Come on baby.... you know I'd never make a purchase that big without talking to you first.


That's sort of where I am, not quite sure of the exact differences between the 14 & the 17.

Would love to see some kind of power rating as well.

They have it rated as #11 behind Sears, Hoover, Electrolux, Kirby and others. WTF?


It's all hype for the most part. They are a good vac, but most commercial vacs will kick their ass at half the price. I bought into the hype and bought 20 of them 2 years ago. All of them were broke beyond repair in less than a year.

Hoover lightweights and sanitaire vacs cost less than $200 and kick ass and last. Only problem is lack of attachments.


I take it from your name that you are involved in professional cleaning services?

What you do you have most in inventory?

Tnx.
