Motor went out
Comments about Dyson DC50 Animal Lightweight Upright Vacuum - CLOSE OUT:
To start off, I take very good care of my vacuum cleaners. I always purchase new filters, and with this unit it seems as if I spent more time cleaning my vacuum than I did cleaning WITH my vacuum. However, recently I was using this machine and the motor died completely. With the price I paid I expected this unit to last me a long time, unfortunately that was not the case. The DC50 was one of my favorite vacuums, I really liked the design and portability but when it comes to durability I am a bit disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Heavy & unwieldy
The dyson has exceptional suction and cleaning power. Unfortunately it is too heavy and the cleaning head too large to get behind or under furniture. The accessories are impossible to use because the hose is so tightly wound that it will not extend without the vacuum following the hose and slapping against my legs. Accessory use is a two person job - one to manuever the furniture or dog cleaning head - and one to hold the vacuum back! Very disappointed.
Best Vacuum ever
Great vacuum, send me some other products
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
GET OUTTA MY WAY
That's what I say to the dirt, as i pick it up with the C50 Dyson. This little machine picks up everything, & not having to adjust the level, ( it does it automatically) makes it even easier to use! The only drawback is when u go to use additional tools, the hose they connect to is not long enough, & is kind of a pain to use on furniture. I would've given it a 5 if it wasnt for that. My wife & i both love it!!
Great product for my mobility issues
I think I tried every vacuum in the store and this was the one that best fit my needs. I had it now for a month and I love it. Unit is lightweight and easy to maneuver. I have mobility issues and had a hard time vacuuming and could only do one room at a time but now I can do the entire first floor all at once. I have 4 dogs so I have to empty canister fairly often but it has great suction.
Great suction and super light-weight
I loved using this machine. Its power was remarkable and it maneuvered like a feather. I have 3 long haired beasts (2 Aussies and 1 Samoyed/Husky). They put out an incredibly massive amount of hair. There is so much hair that I had to stop and unload about half way through. But even that inconvenience considered the Dyson Ball Compact Animal is a tremendous bargain. It is probably best suited for short hair dogs.And last but certainly not least is the excellent customer support that is provided by Dyson. Just like their vacuums they are head and shoulders above the competition.
The Vac picks up well
Really like the animal. We have a Black English Lab, live in Florida so he sheds constantly. The Vac picks up well, so glad that I have tile throughout couldn't imagine carpeting.
Decided to upgrade
Great little compact vacuum I received a few weeks ago. Out of the box, took a little while to assemble with low vision but (between instructions,Dyson online help & you tube), once together all made sense. Wish the hose attachment was easier when changing tools, maybe after some practice. I went over my hardwood floors with my old vacuum before using the animal. I was amazed to watch the bin quickly fill with animal hair and fine dust particles and wished I'd made this purchase sooner. Was able to take everything apart for cleaning the unit without any problem. One of the reasons for ordering the unit was to be able to clean my ceiling fans. I can't lift and the reach was not long enough to use with ease. Online chat and customer service on the phone were very nice in helping me through the return process to upgrade to a muli-floor with more reach and suction. Should receive soon.
another great dyson
We had the 25 and it has lasted us many years. We moved it to our cabin this spring and needed a new one for our house. Such an improved model. I definitely am impressed that dyson continues to out do themselves... never mind that they are years ahead of the industry... Great buy
Simply put this is a poor product. We had our previous dyson for around 7 years. Though the plastic began to fail and ultimately we were forced to replace it, at least it worked. This vacuum just stinks. It clogs on every use, the cord is terribly short, it's tiny, I could go on. Bottom line, like most dyson products I find this vacuum to be more design and form over function.
