I'm contemplating purchasing a dyson animal dc41? Anyone have one of these that wants to comment on it? Are they worth the price and all the hoopla?

I don't have the Animal, but I have a Dyson. It's amazing. I have a lab mix, so she sheds all the time. The amount of hair that thing sucks up is just unreal. Definitely worth the money.

Have one (regular, not animal). . . lives up to its reputation for not losing suction. Was originally worried that it seemed too "plasticky" and designed for cosmetic appeal, but it's been quite durable as well. Have a dog. He sheds. Vacuum cleans up.

I have one and a portable DC-35. We love them! We have a boxer and I swear every time we vacuum it picks of enough hair to make another dog! The DC-35 I use on the boat from time-to-time too.

You, sir, obviously have never used a Dyson vacuum. Too, this is a tame subject for TT. Stick around a few years (or 13) and you'll see...;)

Dame right I have never used one. (My wife owns one, and love it.) I have my tools and she has hers.

We have the dyson DC35 (the "animal" was not available when we bought it 2 years ago).

Pros: very good suction, easy to clean, high quality construction, nice wall rack that when mounted keeps unit charged easily, the beater brush does a good job on boat carpet, battery life has remained constant

cons: you have to hold the power trigger on the whole time you're using it - annoying there isn't a on/off button. Cost. Battery life is only about 10 min or so, but typically we can vacuum the whole boat in the time it runs. It takes a long time to recharge once run down (hours) and there is no separate battery to swap.

I would definitely buy one again. Not sure what the animal has in terms of upgrades from our model, but we've actually gotten used to grabbing it for quick household clean ups as well instead of using our central vac.

+1 on the Dyson. I must say we have had a few hitches with ours. Power button got stuck, accordion hose tore other than that it sucks great. Model = DC 24. Power cord is also very, very short.

Have a older model Animal. It's 7 yrs old and runs like the day we bought it. Our golden SHEDS. Fills the container half full EVERYDAY. My husband cannot comment on this thread, he had to ask where the power button was the one and only time he used it.

I have the Dyson DC 25 and its the best vacuum I have used. It will pick up dirt/dust that other vacuums wont. Its also quieter then the Eureka's and Hoover that I had. The Dyson is expensive but its worth every penny. Yes I would buy another

The DC41 can't be touched by any other vacuum. Simply unbeatable. Use it to clean out the vehicles and the boat, wouldn't use anything else.

I'll chime in on this. We have three vacuums. A Dyson Animal, an Oreck and a Shark Liftaway. The Shark is so much better than the other two it's not even a close comparison. I tested them on several different carpet types around the house. First I would use the Oreck, then the Dyson and then the Shark. Each time the Shark had more in the container than the other two that went before it. The thing is ridiculous and it weighs half of what the Dyson weighs.

For reference I have two German Shepherds and three cats. One of the GSD's and one of the cats are long hairs. Give the Shark a try first. I think if you order them (we bought ours at Sam's) they give you a return time and some free stuff.

I have slate floors throughout the house - tried several vacuums, Hoover, etc. None picked up the dirt, just blew it around. Wife brings home the Dyson Animal - it works like a champ! And very easy to empty the container.

I too have a Shark. I went with the Rotator Professional Lift Away. It is quite amazing! The main reason I chose it over the Dyson was the Lift Away feature. Easy to carry down to the dock to clean the boat. The first couple times I used it I could not believe how much it picks up. Made me feel dirty :)

Dyson is poor design for the hose attachment, very hard to use.

I also add, even though it's great on suction, it is heavy compared to others. My wife doesn't even like to do all the stairs because of this. I have to do all the stairs holding the Dyson all the way up and down. 3 floors so a lot of stairs to get clean!

We have a lab and it fills up constantly! I probably have to empty the container on a "per floor basis". So, to vacuum our whole house I have to empty the container 3 times. It does pick up a lot of hair though.......

Really what?

My concern is that we were being criticized for being men and talking about vacuum cleaners (oh, the shame!). I vacuum, can sew, and cook very well. Does that somehow make me less of a man? In my time on here, I've seen discussions on just about any topic you can think of.

For the record, I was in no way condoning starting a sexually-oriented discussion on here.

I don't know. It has some purple on it, I think it's an "animal" of some sort. We've had it for about 4-5 years now. :confused:

We got both a Dyson Animal and a Shark in my house and I have used them both many times.
Both work great. The Dyson is the better built, but on what you get for the price, Shark wins.

Too bad the wife dosn't allow me to take either out to the boat.

I thought that was the kind of thing you DID talk about? Usually over beers in the garage or on the dock/deck. :confused:

I've seen lots of threads here where the men (and women) talk about getting stains off seats. Do I get to keep my man card for doing that type of cleaning too?? I also use windex for cleaning glass on my boat....now where did that "man card" of mine go??? :D:D:D
