Summary: I have had an old vacuum for a long time. Every time I went shopping at my favorite store, I would look at the vacuums and say to myself I'm gonna get me one someday. I finally did only because it was 40 percent off. I will never give it up. My cat isn't scared of it like the old one I had.
Summary: Have had the product for about 10 days. The suction is excellent. I wish the wheels on the base were a little wider to prevent the canister from falling over. Also, the head on the beater bar could be just a little wider also to cover a larger area. The ease of operation and versatility is good. Unfortunately the brushes froze 4 days after I purchased it, but a new one was quickly shipped.
Summary: I received the device via UPS and it arrived in good condition. The manual and instructions were complete and accurate. It took about 30 minutes to read the documentation and assemble the pieces and each piece was bagged seprately and easy to unwrap. The device worked perfectly with the only possible issue being that the container was small and needed to be emptied frequently during the first use.
Summary: Much better suction than my old canister model. Easy to move around and easily reaches under the bed and in the corners. Picks up a lot of dust and dirt... you can see it in the canister! I really love to use it.
Summary: We finally took the leap and bought an expensive vacuum. I had no idea my house was so dirty until I repeatedly filled up it's little waste compartment. The advertising makes a big deal about its maneuverability. That's only applicable for people with big open houses. For the rest of us that live in tight spaces it's not so easy going and has to be readjusted. Not a big deal.
Summary: I purchased to get rid of a monster upright that weighs at least 40 lbs. I have severe osteoarthritis, I have had 3 low back sugeries and I have OA in my neck and back, my hands, thumbs, knees, elbows and ankles. My spine surgeon has limited me to 20 lbs. or less. This vacuum, DC47, is lightweight I can lift it without back pain which is important. I vacuumed my living room and this machine picked up a lot of dirt that my upright obviously missed.
Summary: Does a good job of picking up dust and dirt and you can dump it out and see what you have picked up,whre with a bag you don't know when is clogged or full. All tools are with you and easy to change from one to another.
Summary: Great little hand-held with the Dyson efficiency you expect. Good for in-between major cleaning and getting under low furniture (forget the mop , this is better!). Can't handle the larger area rugs that a DC7 can, so I won't give that up. Dog hair clings to the wand and in the ball joint area of the attachments, and I had to stop to wipe them off and then vacuum the hair up. Smaller bin requires more emptying, but it's also easy to disassemble and clean.
