Best dyson dc41 animal bagless vacuum cleaner reviews

  1. 1. bestdysonvacuum.orgBestDyson DC41 Animal Bagless VacuumCleanerReviewI know this dyson dc41 animal bagless vacuum cleaner will be long, so I will present this in pros& cons, a summary of my background a little, a summery of my experiences, and then a moredetailed follow up on some of those pros/cons.All in all, my wife and I are really happy with it. Its only been the first week, so time will tell.Some of the pros and cons might appear to be double listed, as some are a plus and a minus.PROS* Sucks - pulls dirt out of somewhere where my last vacuum couldnt find it.* a bit quieter than any vacuum I have had...lowerpitch as well. My wife and I can actually talk atreasonable levels when the vacuum is running.* Vacuum head self adjust to floor, so no bendingdown to turn the @!#$ switch on most vacuums.* Attachments lock into place, so they dont come offwhen using them* Dirt canister removes as one unit (no dirt on thefloor), dumps out of bottom over a trash can - somedust may come up, but small* Beaters/rollers (rolling brush that hits the carpet)stops rotating when the vacuum is in park, which alsodiverts the airflow to the hose.* Beaters have a switch to turn them off - for hardfloors* Pulling on hose to clean with does not cause thevacuum to fall over* Hose does not fight you to keep it extended, but does spring back when needed...not sure howthey pulled this one off - looks weird.* Feels lighter* Wand is one piece, so you dont have to assemble it to use it* Lots of attachment options* Filters are all washable, it says once every 3 months - after 2 wks, there was only the finest, andalmost no dust...washed it just to see.* LONG elec cord - 30+* no wasted space, so the design looks cleaner (i.e. hose tucks into frame/handle)
  2. 2.* easy to unclog (see very end - 1.5 month update)CONS* Wand is a bit awkward, length is a solid 3ft, and has to be removed to use tools with the hose* Ball takes a little getting used to.* Elec cord is not a self wind up* Canister dumps out the bottom - not all the dirt comes out, but most. way too much dog hairwhile using hair attachment will require fishing it out by hand, though not difficult.* Most attachments are extra, meaning extra money.* Smaller canister than most vacuums, but not bad either.BACKGROUNDI decided to go with frustration free in the title, rather than the typical "this vacuum sucks". Im aguy, I think Im typical in that Im not a fan of vacuuming. I do it to keep the filth wifecan see dirt better than I, either its in the genes, or men are better at ignoring things they dontwant to know about, cuz then we would have to do something about it.At any rate, Im always frustrated when vacuuming. Getting it out, moving it around, the endlessback and forth. This is before you start dealing with attachments and emptying/maintaining thething. Ive been using bagless since they came out.We have pets, 1 cat, 2 dogs, and others (but they dont leave hair or dirt around). These 3 petsare also allowed to come and go as they please, so for the most part, vacuuming is needed tokeep the hair down, and the dirt as well. As such, pet hair kills vacuums. Which is why the lastfew I have purchased have been Bissels.Especially the pet one. I had a Eureka once that killeditself in less than a year on dog hair (gets in the rollers, and burns the bearings up. Ive liked theBissels (last two vacuums), but decided with a Dyson for a number of reasons based on reviews,plus I would rather buy one good machine, than a lot of mediocre ones.MY EXPERIENCEIve had the Dyson for a whole week, so keep in mind, mileage may vary. Im actually ratherimpressed. We tend to vacuum weekly, though more would be better (white long haired dog,means you see hair the day after you vacuum on dark colored rugs). Our Bissel needed replacing,so Im told by my wife, but it seemed to do a pretty good I thought.On opening up the box, Im a guy, no need for instructions, the vacuum went together prettynicely. No tools required. Snapped together like an expensive lego set. Though rather straightforward, they include cheat sheets on the vacuum for those that didnt open the instruction book.I didnt time myself, but it took longer to get the parts out of all the packing material, than it didto assemble it....not that there was too much packing material.On first use, a bit of dirt (and hair of course) came up. A bit more than I would have expected. Iwas impressed on that alone. I then vacuumed the next few nights. I was amazed at how muchdirt came out of the carpet (same each time). I know dirt packs into the carpet, but geez.
  3. 3. bestdysonvacuum.orgMost vacuums it seems a chore to vacuum, in that you have to move back and forth whilerotating the vacuum to move it across the floor. Basically I can move it around with almost noeffort. The head is a little lower in height, so I can actually get into places I couldnt before. Onething to note, most vacuums have many of those brushes on the beater/roller, where the Dysonhas half as many - spaced further apart.MORE DETAILS (than you probably needed)So most reviews talk about how much the thing sucks (meaning less back and forth), I mentionedmy results above. What is amazing is that it is noticeably quieter. Its not like you can vacuumwhile someone sleeps, but it is quieter. The lower pitch also seems to make the noise lessbothersome.The Canister: its nice in that you dont have to open up the container over the floor to take itover to empty it. With dog hair, on other machines I usually end up pulling some hair out of otherplaces and getting dirt on the floor, as well as the vacuum. Basically, I have to re-vacuum the areaI stopped to empty the vacuum. As nice as it is to just pull of the whole canister, hold it part wayinto the trash can, and push a button to empty the whole thing - not all the dirt comes out, andyou do have to close it by hand....Ive been giving it a little jiggle before closing it, causing theusual dust cloud at the trash can...will have to see if I work out a better method of use.Vacuum hose wrestle mania 2000 is closed for business on this machine. Typically, on othervacuums I have had, the hose has a strong pull which i have to hold on to, and also make sure idont pull the vacuum over....or onto me if Im close by. This is in part that vacuums tend to havethe hose high up on the vacuum, making them tilt easy. Dyson is very low on the vacuum. Also,Im not sure how they do this, the hose will spring back together for putting it up, but when youpull on the hose to use it, it takes little effort to maintain the extended kinda pulls itselfback together when you are done.I have not actually weighed the Dyson and my old vacuum. And while I would swear the Dysonwas lighter while using it, they kinda feel like the same weight if you just lift them up....Imguessing this is a result of a lower center of gravity.Attachment heaven - have you ever had the attachments fall off while using them. I have. not allthe time, but enough to be annoying, or you push them on really hard, but then have to work toget them off. Dyson attachments all lock into place. Rather simply done, and easy to use. Though,the way they go on, they cant be rotated...not sure if this is a bad thing.And lastly; the ball. It does maneuver better than a regular vacuum, and I think it is the big plusto significantly reducing the frustration in vacuuming. Its actually rather maneuverable. Thoughit takes a little getting used to, in getting into tight spots.1.5 Month updateWe both still love this thing. I wont go over what I have before. I recently decided to clean the car.
  4. 4. bestdysonvacuum.orgNot that it was filthy, but with the dogs and use, it needed to be cleaned. It worked like a champ,but one aspect I wanted to point out was that I found I missed an unused Starbucks napkin underthe seat. The vacuum pulled that thing in so fast, I couldnt even react. A few points from thisevent. I believe the vacuum has a bypass when the unit is clogged to save the motor. I could hearsomething as it kicked in and out. Also, to unclog the unit, since the napkin was way in there. Ifyou turn it off, and move the handle down like you were to vacuum the floor...there is a tube thatI had not noticed before that switches from the hose to the floor. When it does this, that is wheremy vacuum was clogged. i.e. you dont need to try and push it through like on other vacuums, orfigure out how to get the napkin out....though it did take a few minutes to figure this out...quiteby accident.Approx 6 month updateNot be repetitive, but we both still love this thing. The ball, and its operation, is much easier now.Ive been getting pretty good at rotating my wrist to get the vacuum to move around some prettytight spots or around obstacles.Not sure if this is a bad or good thing, but the throat of the vacuum in floor mode is not verylarge. I still have to pick up the occasional item that I would think would be small enough whencompared to my older vacuums, but the Dyson will not pick it up. i.e. having to either pick it offthe floor, or tip over the vacuum to pull it out (not difficult, just annoying.) Of course, come tothing of it, it was usually one of these objects that clogged the vacuum. Aside from not pickingsomething up, and the one car incident, I have not really experienced any clogging with theDyson in the 6mo we have had it.
