Dyson DC41 Animal
Advantages: Great suction, good length stair hose, handy attachments, easy to empty, very powerful
Disadvantages: Take care when replacing the hose onto bar, could break. Very pricy vacuum.
We've owned a Dyson DC33 1300 watt bagless for quite a number of years. Sadly the ole fella decided to give up the ghost good and proper last year. I love the Dysons and wanted to stick with the same make. I was recommened the Dyson DC41 by my friend. At first I thought it was a little steep in price, but in the end I don't mind paying for a quality machine which I hope, will last me for the next ten years (or is this wishful thinking on my part?) One thing that I LOVE about these machines is that they come with a MASSIVE 5 year guarantee should the worst happen.
It's bagless which means no loss of suction, uses the infamous multi cylonic tech, hose length is a respectable 4.7 meters, dustibin has a capacity of 2.11 litres which includes a handy indicator which tells you when the container is full. Can cope with all floor types with the use of three different head tools; mini turbine and stair stool etc.
This model is a tad heavier than our old one and weighs 7.8kg And has even more power- hmmm should I be worried that it'll suck all my pile up? As with all Dysons it deals greatly with pet hair. We have a long haird cat who is always leaving fluff all over the place, and the Dyson gobbles this up in no time at all. One thing that does concern me with the design is where the hose is placed, it kind of feels a bit cheap, so I'm careful when placing it on the bar.
If you've never used a Dyson before it's an interesting experience. You can see what your're hoovering up, great if you have kids who leave tiny little bits of lego over the floor. And because you can pysically see what you've hoovered up it makes you want to empty the container on a regular basis. Moving around with this model is so easy and effortless. The hose for the stairs is fab. You can leave the machine at the bottom of the stairs and the 4.7m hose will make it all the way to the top with great ease.
Prior to owning this one I used to get in a right duy mess when emptying the container but with this model you simply detach the container from the Dyson body, hold the container over your wheelie bin or wherever you want to disguard your hooverings, and then press the release button to empty it's dusty contents. This is ideal for users who have allergies.
It's a fantasic model however it's on the pricy side, but then it's a great quality product which will last for many years to come. Best thing about this Dyson is that my son loves to use it which saves me a job!!
