Comments about Dyson DC50 Animal Lightweight Upright Vacuum - CLOSE OUT:
It still amazes me how much this vacuum really picks up. Its gotten plugged up once in the bottom of the hose, causing a much louder whirring noise. I took it apart and cleaned the filters and found the source of the problem: lots and lots of dog hair. This was about 6 months in to owning it, averaging vacuuming once per week. So, not bad at all! Still love this vacuum. I still recommend it 100%. My dog sheds like its going out of style, so I honestly wasn't surprised that happened, so it didn't change my opinion of the vacuum.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great for pet hair!
This vacuum works great as long as you don't want to use the pull out wand-type thing very often. The vacuum itself cleans really well, is light, and is easy to move around. It is also EXCELLENT in removing pet hair from carpet or fabric (i have a dog and a cat). However, when you want to use the extension wand, you have to remove the electrical cord from where it is kept (coiled around the back of the machine) in order to get it out. The wand/tube extension is also not very long; you basically need the vacuum next to you and then have to keep your foot on it to be able to pull the extension to it's full length (probably because the machine itself is so light). I am OK with this as I also have a cordless Dyson and therefore do not use the extension wand on this very often (usually just for vacuuming the couch), but if you would use the extension often, this is probably not a good choice for you.
I absolutely love it!!
I used this for the first time today and I must say that i am very impressed. The suction on it out of this world. I had no idea how much pet hair was in my carpet. The actual assembly of it was a little unclear but once i figured it out I was set. The only down side to it is getting it to lock back in place or setting it back when your done. I had a few problems with it falling down on its own. But I love how light wight is it. I carried it up my stairs with no problem at all! I am truly happy with this product. The little issues are well worth how amazing of a job it does.
the dyson is a excellent designed machine for its function easy clean strong suction. But materials a little flimsy in regard to hard plastic light which makes up for it. overall i like it.
Powerful little machine.
Love the compact animal, very light weight and easy to use. Great for people with arthritis, very easy to push on carpeting and even easier on wood flooring. Love the attachments for cleaning the cat hair off of the furniture. Worth every penny. This is our second Dyson, got the second one for the compactness and the light weight. Highly recommend!!
It does the job!
I've had this vacuum cleaner for about 6 weeks, and am quite pleased with it for these reasons: 1) I can't believe how much cat hair this machine picks up. I didn't even know my 3 cats were shedding that much. 2) It is 1/2 the size of the last vacuum I had, so easier to store. 3) It is lighter and nimbler, too. 4) I could have bought a less expensive vacuum, but I don't have to buy bags and belts ever again, so for the life of this machine, I think I'll come out even or better. 5) I thought it would be a pain to wash the filters, but it really isn't any more work than changing the bag on my old machine. I can't think of any negatives.
Excellent Suction on the DC50
I read a lot of reviews on this particular model. Most were positive. The ones that "scared" me were that the cord was too short and the wand was too short. I'll admit the cord is short, but it's not a deal breaker. You do have to unplug and re-plug in a large room. The wand pulls out and extends beyond how it appears when it is first pulled out. I wonder if people did not realize that. It is has fine reach. You just have to pull the solid piece out of the tube. I took everything out of a walk-in closet and vacuumed around the baseboards. I'll sadly admit that I don't know the last time this was done and there was a lot of dust on the baseboards. The attachment tool did a fantastic job. What sold me on buying it was the reviews that said you would not believe how much hair and dust you will pick up from your "clean" carpet. This is so true. It's worth the small hassle of the cord length. The cleaning people had just come to my house the day before my new vacuum arrived. My carpets still had lines in them and appeared clean. They bring their own vacuum. From now on I will ask them to please use mine. I filled up the bin three times. Ick. We have two dogs and I have to vacuum every other day or the house is filled with hair tumble weeds. This is a good product, you won't be sorry.
Worked for 6 months
Now the roller is worn and won't pick up dirt
