hair in the little wheels on the head
Comments about Dyson DC65 Animal Complete Upright Vacuum:
I have one dog, a long haired German Shepherd. The little wheels on the head get clogged with dog hair and stop rolling in just 2 months. This makes the unit very hard to push. A serious issue, I take of the head every two months and get out my utility knife and small needle nose pliers and cut and pull the hair out until the wheels are free once again. Unfortunately, must be done every 2 months. Imagine if I had 2 or 3 dogs. Everything else on this Dyson is good, yes the commercials are true, it is a high quality vacuum that has the worlds best suction. I am offering to be a testing site for Dyson for the DC65 Animal or any animal type vacuum. I vacuum 3-4 times a week to keep up with the pet hair as a long haired German Shepherd does shed a lot of hair. Dyson is sending me 2 new replacement heads at no charge as we speak, Dyson stands behind their products, what more could anyone ask for? Go Dyson.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A worthwhile investment
Our dog of choice is the collie. These family friendly Lassie look-a-likes are wonderful except their long hair about our lair. Over the years, we have tried the latest and greatest, but they seldom lasted beyond a year. So we decided to invest in the Animal Complete. It was more than what we spent in the past, but hoped that it would pay off over the long term. And it has! It has lasted beyond every other vacuum that we have purchased and its performance has not diminished since it first arrived. The transition from carpet to wood floors is seamless. Using the attachments may be different at first because of how the machine is engineered, but all are very useful and come with a convenient organizer that you can hang in your closet. If you have wood floors, walk around barefooted after you have used a Dyson. It's a truly amazing feel of cleanliness.
Great but LOUD
The vacuum is great, but is louder than we had anticipated, hence the lower score. When I use the stick or attachments, I need to use ear plugs.
A must for pets!
We have a golden retriever and this vacuum is a must for pets! We absolutely love the tangle free turbine tool! It never tangles and gets ALL the dog hair off of sofas. We also use it and is perfect for car upholstery! Completely satisfied with our dyson! Yes many of the parts are hard plastic, but it is still very durable and the suction just doesn't compare! You have to see for yourself, it's worth the price!
Love My Dyson
Love this vacuum, first time i used it i was completely disgusted at how much dirt was in my carpet and couch! Very easy to empty container, light weight, easy to turn on carpet, hard surfaces not so much but i didn't purchase for hard floors so that doesn't bother me.
Pretty Decent Vacuum
I really like this vacuum - it does a good job and it is pretty lightweight. Things I don't like - it is hard to go underneath things because of the big ball. I really dislike that the tools are not attached to the vacuum, they are kept in a separate bag, so if you need to use them, you have to either carry them with you or go get them as needed. Also, the cord wrap is very flimsy! Overall, I would recommend it.
Not as good as the older Dyson
Our older Dyson was getting a little long in the tooth so to speak, so we purchased the New DC 65 because we have Golden Retrievers in our house. This unit was great looking and we had great experience with Dyson in the past so there was no hesitation about purchasing this one. Our out of the box experience was okay, the Vacuum filled up extremely quickly, and we had a problem with the hair wrapping around the brush right away. Then a spacer on the brush bar, wore out (during the first two weeks) and the hair started getting inside the brush. Not good, we'd vacuum 15 minutes and remove hair for 15 minutes. Based on our previous experience everyone we have any influence on purchased a Dyson based on how good our original unit was, my church, my mom, and my 2 daughters in particular. All have had great service, and they too have recommended the product. Based on my current DC65 I wouldn't recommend this unit to anyone that has pets. The unit still looks great but now it has died and has to be repaired under warranty.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I have been using this machine for almost a year now. I have compared it to many different brands and this DC65 Animal is a beast! Cleans incredibly with ease! Can't wait to save my money for the new Cinetic Animal Allergy to see how it is compared to this one.
This is a great machine! ...
This is a great machine! Love how it manvers around everything so easily! The power is really strong and even on low-pile carpet, nothing is left behind, not even fine short pet hair. Emptying the bin is so easy with just the push of a button. The whole machine is so lightweight it nice to be able to take it up and downstairs to use on jobs that come up. I really love this machine for rooms with lots of carpet! The long cord allows me to vacuum without having to unplug and move to another plug as often as my old machine! Its also very powerful and fast on getting the job done!
a great machine...a lousy ...
a great machine...a lousy cord ! my suggestion is to use a softer, more flexible powder cord, one that doesn't resist looping
