Dyson DC19T2 Animal
Advantages: great features
After 10 years of great service from my Henry Hoover (I know, shameful) I decided it was time I updated to a modern hoover. After much deliberating over many makes and models I settled on this little Animal. The Dyson DC19T2 appealed to me mainly because of its look. I am very set in my ways, and I didn't want a hoover that was radically different from the way my old one looked or moved. This seemed to fit the bill perfectly. It looks very tidy, with a telescopic tube, allowing it to be neatly attached to the main part. It has cyclone technology, which apparently means the hoover will never loose suction.
After multiple uses now, I have to say I am delighted that I spent my hard earned money on this little baby. It runs like a dirt sucking miracle. Its movement is wonderful, with an easy to manoeuvre handle, and the head of the hoover has two wheels, which makes it feel like its gliding along any surface. The main part of the hoover has two big round wheels, which means that if you need to turn it 180 degrees, you just need to pull it in that direction and it will raise and turn without any fear of it toppling onto its side (a common problem I had with Henry). It also has an automatic cable reel, so at a push of a button the cable is wound back in at perfect speed. I don't know why but I get a strange enjoyment out watching the cable automatically shoot back into the hoover. Perhaps its because of all the time wasted wrapping and unwrapping the wire around the Henry hoover, this time saving component causes great satisfaction.
This machine isn't the quietest, but then one expects hoovers to create a fair amount of noise. It has an aerated sound, almost like its purifying the air. Much more preferable to the typical drone of most other hoovers.
In terms of its cleaning ability, for me it gets up every single bit of dirt that it goes over. Furthermore ninety nine percent of the time, one movement over an area is enough to get up all the dirt. On very rare occasions does it require two movements. There are two extra cleaning heads that come with this hoover, that are neatly attached to the pipe. One of the components has a brush part on it, which makes it perfect for getting the dust off of skirting boards, upholstery and other scratchable or damageable surfaces. The other component is great for cleaning the stairs. Its nice and petite, allowing all the corners to be cleaned thoroughly.
All in all this Dyson is a perfect cleaning machine. It isn't exactly the cheapest, with the price ranging between £170-£210, depending on where you purchase it from, but in my opinion it is money well spent.
Summary: super sucking power
