Summary: A great little vacuum, great suction, very easy to use and the smaller head gets under furniture, even under the beds. Its very light weight and maneuverable and has a retractable cord. I think the brush bristles are a little longer with this machine and it does a better job overall picking up hair and dirt. Much easier to use the attachments with the canister than with the upright vacuums.
Excerpt: After hearing from so many people about how much they love their Dyson and doing research, we purchased the DC39 Animal Canister vacuum with our wedding money in the beginning of 2012. We have 2 dogs that shed terribly, so I wanted a vacuum that could keep up with the mess they leave. After using the vacuum for a few years, I really am not thrilled with it at all! This vacuum does has its pros and cons, the cons greatly outnumber the pros, however! Pros: 1.
Excerpt: Many companies produce products that are aesthetically pleasing to the eye, but put little to no effort in coming up with smart ideas to maximize the functionality of their products. I had vacuum cleaners that are powerful, but noisy and heavy, I've had ones that are light-weight but are less powerful and fragile, or the ones that worked great in the beginning but it'd eventually stop working altogether. None of them provide access to the agitator Brushroll….
Excerpt: this is a very light vacuum which makes it easier to move around the house and get up and down the stairs. the steering took awhile to get used to but now i can manuever it easily. the suction is fabulous and it cleans edges like no other vacuum i have used. i am very pleased with the power. i love the retractable cord. cons: i wish the cord was longer and its not as easy to empty as i thought it would be.....
Excerpt: I've had the upright animal ball for about 4 years and love it. I found this on sale and thought it would be great for stairs/under furniture, so I bought it as a secondary vacuum. It's great in all aspects except it's incredibly messy to empty the canister. The upright dirt canister only requires one hand to hold, push the release button, and empty.
Summary: Love this vacuum. The suction is insane so you have to watch when going over rugs and placemats, but the release valve in the handle takes care of it. It's not too loud. It's got wheels on the suction head so it's a lot easier going over tile and wood. It does take up more space for storage though, compared to a stand up vacuum.
Summary: This is a great product. It has really good suction and it is very light weight. The canister follows behind you as you vacuum. The retractable cord does not get tangled and it waste canister is easy to clean and empty.
