watch out for hair!
Comments about Dyson DC47 Animal Canister Vacuum:
the very FIRST time I used this machine a hair apparently caught in the head and it stopped turning (suction continued) - every attempt was tried to fix it and all options to release it were unsuccessful and Dyson had to send me an entirely new head - I don't even have long hair! now I'm terrified to even use it because I'm afraid there will be another hair that gets stuck! Dyson people were wonderful and generous in their walking me through all the steps to release it which didn't work, but I'm still vacuum shy.... and by the way - how many nickames do you know that have 3 letters? maybe almost ALL OF THEM
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have been a big Shark vacuum fan but got a DC47 for XMAS. First time in a long time not using an upright. This vacuum works great and easy to navagate. Love the retractable cord an ease of cleaning filters. Only one big problem is the very small canister to hold dirt needing to empty once or twice if Ivacuum the whole house. I get that it is a compact but still could have been designed to hold more dirt. So not perfect but very good vacuum.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This unit is the BEST light weight cleaner I've used! It picks up the finest dirt! The self storing telescoping wand is great. It reaches into my cathedral ceiling corners without an issue! I only wish the cord was a few feet longer and the unit itself more stable. It tends to tip over when I'm reaching up high or in a hurry. That may be due to the cord not being longer.
Why didn't I get it sooner
Love how compact and light but most of all how efficient this machine is. Love the features and how easy it is to maintain. The only thing that would improve this machine is making the parts dishwasher safe.
Really like my Dyson DC47. So easy to move around. Like the cord rewind. Picks up pet hair and sand'
The Dyson 47 really gets the job done. I have several cats and it really is vicious about getting the cat hairs out of the carpet. The only complaint is that the cord is too short. Otherwise, the DC47 Animal really lives up to it's name and is the best vacuum cleaner that I have ever had.
Small and but powerful
Being a widower and living alone, I am very happy with this purchase. It is small in size allowing me to go into places that I couldn't go before with my older vac. Small in size but very powerful. Never enjoyed vacuuming but this DC47 makes it a little better and faster and also easy to carry up and down the stairs.
Love my Dyson animal
This vacuum is the best vacuum I have ever used. It's light weight, and it's size will fool you! I have a German Shepherd, and every other vacuum could not withstand the heavy usage necessary to keep up with his hair! I would recommend this vacuum to everyone I know, and I have raved about it to all my friends who have pets! I bought the grooming tool, and I love brushing him with it, too! What a bonus! I say, "buy it if you haven't yet"
Not my favorite vacuum
Cord is way too short. I added a small extension cord to it. Wheel base is narrow so the machine tends to tip over...a lot. Keep an eye on it and it will follow along. It should not need that much attention. I prefer a power head - not one powered by the suction force - so it isn't very good on rugs, but it is very good on bare floors. Well made and any clogs are easy to dislodge. Its just not a machine for me.
I am very please with my Dyson. The only issue is, the two clips on the purple cylinder that holds the clear bin have broken. Other then that it is the best vacuum I have ever owned! It is a light weight vacuum and with the long hose I don't struggle getting under or up to items. This is very important for people with major neck issues like me. So thank you Dyson!
