This vacuum is so easy to use and so lightweight that my children are able to handle it with ease. This is the perfect tool for getting in and around the furniture and the size makes it perfect for our motorhome.

Most convenient vacuum cleaner ever

By Noosh

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Vacuum:

I never imagined that vacuuming would be so easy and simple. I don't use a dustpan any more for a quick clean up after the kids eat I grap this vacuum and never worry about bending down, pulling a cord plugin in. I just vacuum and empty and then recharge in minutes!

Love my Animal!

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Vacuum:

Finally! A vacuum that really sucks cat hair and dust! It also picks up small chunks instead of kicking them across the room on the hard surfaces. After pushing a heavy, noisy, corded popular brand of vacuum around with "onboard" tools which didn't work, this beautifully engineered vacuum is a joy to use. It's light, powerful, maneuverable and pretty quiet. It only takes me about 15 minutes to do the whole upstairs of a 3-bedroom, 2 cat home. Before, I was using a 25-lb vacuum, catching the cord on furniture, replugging it in 3 different places and struggling to vacuum the stairs and furniture. With the Animal and the powered small head it's done in no time! The amount of hair and dust that accumulates in the bin is a little disgusting, but it is satisfying to know it is no longer underfoot. I am a 66-year old woman who had a shoulder replaced. Now I can vacuum with one hand! I was hesitant to spend that much money on a vacuum, but it was well worth it. The only complaint is that the contents of the bin don't just "drop" into the wastebasket. I do have to pull out the gobs of cat hair; but again, it is oddly satisfying to see just how much the vacuum sucks up in 10 minutes!

Love the V6

By Bann1949

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Vacuum:

My V6has the best suction on high and still does a great job on low speed, and have it last 16 minutes is a nice advantage. Our cat has long thick hair and I only need to make one to two sweeps. The attachments works well on furniture,blinds and our vehicles. Having back problems for years, the V6 is very light and easier for me to use. I love it. If I can use it anyone can!

Good buy

By Ipegk

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Vacuum:

Good suction, doesn't catch a lot of hair on the brush, easy to maintain,easy installation especially the wall mount, the wall mount make it easier to charge and store, good suction, handy and light weight, well designed, cleans carpets and hardwood floor very good, very useful to clean the carpets on the steps, and small crevices. Cleaning doesn't feel like a chore anymore because when you see a messy area, just grow and grab the animal, 2 minutes and you are done. One thing I would like to remind the customers is about t the max button at the behind , to activate or dis activate this, the main switch has to pressed down at the same time. This was the only thing I took a minute or 2 to figure out, I recommend this vacuum cleaner highly, Used many other brands before, so far, this is my favorite.

I can't begin to put into words how wonderful it is to finally find a vacuum that picks up dog hair from carpet and upholstery the way the Animal does. It's so simple to clean, and so lightweigt. I've never enjoyed vacuuming so much!

The Good, Bad & the Ugly

By Linda7452

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Vacuum:

I purchased this vac about a year ago. GOOD- love the suction power, however, I use it on boost, since otherwise, I feel, the suction is just so-so. The lightweight ease of use is wonderful for a grab it and zip around for quick cleanups as a supplementary vac. I do realize, the reason you must hold the "on" button for it to run, in spite of comments wishing otherwise for people with arthritic fingers/hands is because helps to extend the battery running time and off when moving to next location. Since this is touted as a pet vac model, I find (with 2 lg dogs who shed minimally), that it is difficult to clean the bin without having to use my fingers or a soft thin brush to pull out the debris and hair. BAD- is, the fine pet dander and dust that coat the inside of the blue mesh filter for which there is no access to remove the trapped fine stuff, and wash it out with soap & water. Just brushing it, doesn't do it! In order to vacuum it out through the tiny mesh holes, you must get another vacuum with an attachment to try to suck it out. Sorry, the pet dander & fine dust collect and compact in the upper and lower rims & ridges or corners of the mesh sections, then lining sections of mesh and it's impossible to remove. I try tapping it - sometimes yuck drops out of the center. Very frustrating and MUST HAVE ENGINEERING re-design this area for access to cleaning out. The UGLY is- the horrible pet smell that lingers on the pre-filter which I have hand washed using dish detergent, & let air dry only to find it still stinks like my old, in poor health dog (both of my canines are indoor pets). Since your info guide states no washing machine or dryer, it takes at least 24 hrs to thoroughly dry (only to be re-washed again to remove odor). Now, I realize I should have at least 2 pre-filters on hand and do need to order extra (just found them -also pricey with shipping) & regularly give them a quick shot of Lysol Disinfecting spray to minimize smell between washing. I do love the ease of use, & since I still live in a rather large sprawling house with marble floors, do my own housecleaning,so I could be very happy with owing 3-4 of these, placed at strategic areas throughout. Currently, the pricing of each is not conducive, since I still need my (competitor's) cannister for the large oriental rugs & greatest cord length for expansive rooms. Plus, I do not know how long, realistically, the battery life is expected to be for these machines. I originally, when purchased, thought that I could have a spare battery ready to swap out in order to continue the cleaning momentum. Not so. It's a great powerful lightweight versatile vac, however, there's definitely room for improvement in the design of the filter area and an easier removal of the clear outer collection bin. Since all part of that mechanism are plastic, I often fear I will break something trying to fit the outer bin back into position (tricky). Thanks for reading about my experience -someone who's very fussy and particular about vacuums, and has gone through too many to mention over the years working, raising boys and dogs with the desire for efficient products to keep a clean sanitary home!

Absolutely love my DC44! It cleans like the "big" machines but because it's cordless it is so light and portable, plus, with a flick of the latch it empties.

Great machine!

By WildWest

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Vacuum:

I love that it is so powerful and no hassles with a cord. I DO wish the charge held at least 30 minutes instead of 20. However, it is so quick to get it and start vacuuming without a big canister machine to lug around. I really like the bagless system too!
