A Little Disappointed
Comments about Dyson DC47 Animal Canister Vacuum:
I am an ardent fan of Dyson Vacuums. I am currently on my third :). I upgraded to the DC47 because I have 2 cats. I decided to steam clean my bedroom carpet (after a coffee mishap). I borrowed a friends carpet shampooer for the weekend. IMMEDIATELY before I started to clean the carpet I used my Dyson DC47. I then began using the shampooer. The attached picture is the hair that was pulled up by the SHAMPOOER. I was shocked and disappointed. I have been a loyal customer for over 10 years. I rave about your machines, and have even let friends borrow my vacuum for a weekend to try it. After that EVERY single person then purchased one of your vacuums. (Current total of 5) Sadly, I can no longer tell people how great your product is, because I no longer believe in it. Currently I am test driving other brands to find my replacement. I will no longer be buying your products nor recommend them to anyone.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

DOES THE JOB
It picks up more dirt than any other vacuum when new. It is light weight enough to move easily around. I really like the wind up cord. I really like the size of it. The attachment head is not the usual 12 inch like I am used to and does seem small. The on/off button would be nicer if it were on the handle. The on board tools are just not placed well. I dread the filter getting dirty as the Dyson's do not work as well without a NEW filter. After you wash the filter it just doesn't seem to work as well. For the price it is the best for picking up dirt that I have found.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Pint size power!
For a small canister it really picks up well. With eight in the houshold along with two dog as and a cat you need a powerful vac. The DC-47 Animal conquers Husky fur, Lab fur, and Calico cat fur. Nice well engineered machine, easy to operate, empty, and keep clean. Thanks Dyson!
I just purchased The Animal yesterday and have only used it one. My previous vacuum was a Dyson and I loved it. The head stopped working so I was in the market for a new one. Although I loved my other Dyson, it did not pick up pet hair as well as I would have liked. After reading reviews I decided to purchase this one. I love it. Although the head is smaller than my other Dyson and the canister is as well, it does exactly what I need it to and in record time. I like the extra attachment head just for cleaning pet hair from furniture. It's amazing. I'm so very happy with my new Dyson. It's an animal!
I like my Dyson, it is ...
I like my Dyson, it is very light and easy to maneuver.
Received the Dyson DC47 as a gift. It's one of the best gifts you could ever ask for. Not only does it do a great job vacuuming, but it's easy to use and can reach places that are not usually vacuumed with our regular vacuum. Works great, it really sucks and is easy to do stairs with and even easy to empty (which is good because you will need to do it often). A great vacuum which is easy to use!
We moved into a home and was informed that the carpets were "professionally" cleaned. Once we started vacuuming, we discovered that either that was not the case or the "professionals" did an extremely poor job. Dyson has done it again with this excellent, easy to maneuver vacuum. Within the first hour of vacuuming, we filled it up almost twice. It found dog hair that was buried deep into the carpet. It works very well on hardwood floors as well. I intend to purchase one of these for my Mom because it is such a great product. Kudos Dyson.
Small & Powerful
This vacuum is both small & powerful. The Pros are: - Sucks up everything in its pathway with great power. - Doesn't get clogged by pet hair. - Has many attachments for every job. - Light weight easy to move around. - Durable. I've dropped mine a few times and it keeps on running. The Cons are: - Very small space from the hose to the canister gets clogged easily with larger items picked up. - Small canister needs to be emptied frequently & usually not just with the push of the canister button. I usually have to pull the dirt out by hand due to the small space and the large amount of hair. - Pricey
I've just had my animal about a month, I like the ease in which you can vacuum. My previous vacuum was the upright Dyson, so I knew my second one would have to be a Dyson. It's very portable and easy to maneuver. Taking out the filters for cleaning, very simple, cannot put in wrong only one way to go, foolproof. I did have to reattach the little purple bristle brushed to the floor attachment, so far the only think i have had to fix and that was simple to do.
This is my favorite vacuum by far out of the four I own. It is lightweight, cleans exceptionally well. Gets all the fine dust you can't even see. Love love love. My house feels so clean when I use it. I can not stand feeling dirt on my feet, have a lot of floor and spend a lot of time vacuuming and with this vacuum I can relax with clean floors.Thank you Dyson. You are the bomb.
