It didn't hold up

  • Summary: We have a lot of pet hair to get up, so this vacuum broke down after less than a year. Got a Shark now.

vacuum roller brush for Dyson

Lisa, Amazon
22 February 2011
  • Summary: The product arrived in a reasonable amount of time, approximately a week and a half. I was in no particular hurry, so this wasn't a problem. The product arrived with one corner chipped out, making it difficult to install. I swapped ends with my old brush to get an undamaged part to be able to install. Everything else went like clockwork. I didn't send the damaged part back because I just didn't want to deal with the hassle. Time is an important commodity for everyone.

  • Summary: Short Story: Broke a few days after I received it.. Had it repaired. Same issue happened again after warranty.. Dyson says tough luck. Would cost $125 to have it fixed. Not terribly happy.

Dyson animal

20 May 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this vacuum 2 years ago. Absolutly the most awesome vacuum when I purchased it. Recommended to all my friends. I do use the product alot due to having 2 dogs and a cat but it is not the same any more. The plastic parts do not fit as tight as when new and the suction is not at all like it was when new!! I have replaced the filter (which was graciously covered under warranty) and keep the filter clean at all times as recommended.

I would get the DC25 instead

Allergens123 "Jim", Amazon
25 February 2009
  • Summary: My wife and I decided to invest in a Dyson after 4 years with a Dirt Devil that wasn't quite doing the job with our cats. So we went and looked at them, and decided to get the DC17 Animal for a couple reasons: 1) because of the extra attachments, and 2) because it had the level 3 root cyclone setup, which is supposed to be better at filtering finer dust. The other candidate was the DC25 "ball." We got it home and cleaned, and it seems like all Dyson says it is.

Dyson DC17 Animal Cyclone Upright Vacuum Cleaner

AnneK.Reel, Rate it all!
3 December 2008
  • Summary: This vacuum rocks for suction power. It takes our dog's black hair off of our light carpets with ease. It is heavy and I cannot get under my sofa, but I have made adjustments. While I think it is a good vaccum, trying to get warranty service for it is awful. I either had to drive it 90 minutes from my house or send it back to Dyson. I opted for the latter. They had it three weeks and offered to provide updates as the repairs went along.

Lots of power BUT One MAJOR DESIGN FLAW

J. Baltrus "Balthazar", Amazon
26 August 2008
  • Summary: I feel compelled to write an honest review albeit warning about the Dyson DC-17 Animal Cyclone vacuum. Yes this vacuum has lots of power with incredible suction. However, having owned this unit for almost two years now there is a fair amount maintenance that as prospective owners you need to be aware of. First off, nearly every component is removable for cleaning/removing debris.

Broken Belts

James D. Harper "David", Amazon
18 July 2007
  • Summary: This vacuum does indeed clean well, but we've had two broken belts on it in just a few months. The belt driving the brush roller. I've seen reviews saying ' no belts to break'. I don't know what vacuum they are using, but our Dyson DC17 Animal DOES have belts that can break.
