I just picked up my DC 17 Dyson Animal from Sears. This thing is awesome! It is quite heavy so I'm glad I don't have stairs. I used my old vacuum late yesterday and STILL this is what the Dyson picked up today!

I've had my Dyson for a couple of years now, and knock on wood it works just as well as the day I got it. I love it. I don't use it nearly as much as I should, but seeing that canister fill up is the best feeling!

Is this some kind of a moon rocket for amateurs?
It sure looks powerful!

Someone just told me about this thing last week!!! She actually brought it to my salon to show me how well it works, knowing I have the Bassets. I'm glad to hear more good things about it. I think it's next in line, as soon as the incredible Hoover Wind Tunnel blows out.

My Oreck burned out in less than 5 years. The hair clogged it up all the time. It was light but the suction sucked ;) I'd love to have a Dyson but can't yet. I see alot of reserviced Dysons do they break down quite a bit?

It's a space shuttle!! Get me one of those and all my boyhood dreams will have 'come true.
I'm sure there is a way put something inside it to make it launch. Oh such fun we could have
the vacuum and I.

We have a light weight hepa Dirt Devil and not only was it el cheapo, and light weight, but picks up fur better than anything we've ever used. Stores very easily too. We've had it over 10 years and it's still going strong!!! Easy to clean the canister too.

But does it look like a space rocket??
Who cares about vacuuming as long as the thing looks like it could take you to the next galaxy :lol:

:rolleyes: Well I bought the Dyson <G> spaceship 2 years ago. I got the one with animal hair attachment . It is very heavy. It has never clogged, no problems. At the time I bought mine it was around $600.00. It must a lot less now. Tummy Boy's Mom. :)

Kaira, this just cracked me up! :lol:

We don't have a Dyson, but I've heard mixed opinions about them. I have the worst luck in the world with vacuum cleaners, gone through a bunch in the last 20 years... :angry:

I've heard both good and bad about the Dyson. I got a Kenmore a few years ago, Consumer Reports gave it the highest rating. After my Kirby, anything would have been a welcome relief, but I must say that this little machine is my best friend! I paid $300 for it on sale, and when it goes, I'm getting another one......

I want both the vaccum cleaner and the tile that is on your kitchen floor. I'm in the process of pulling up the carpet in my kitchen, den, and living room.

I LOVE the Dyson but HATE DESPISE my tile!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :angry: The color shows EVERY single dark dog hair! Also, I didn't realize it's not glazed so it's a matte finish. I have huge tall windows in my house which means I get tons of light. EVERY drool mark shows when the sun hits the floor. Just like a glass with water stains when it comes out of the dishwasher. I would LOVE LOVE to rip up the tile and replace it with something different. Unfortunately our house is only 3 years old and we tiled 80% of it with this stuff. I learned never to get that kind of tile again.

Ah, we got our Dyson Animal for our wedding last year - and I don't know how we lived without it. I'm regularly amazed by how much it continues to pick-up and can't believe that Jasmine can possibly have any hair left, with all that it continually sucks up out of my carpets!

Wow, I'm glad you told me that. It looks so nice. I hate that you are having so much trouble with it. Fred isn't a heavy drooler, but his dog hair showing up would be a problem for me. I'm glad you told me this, because I'm in the process of getting tile done and I'm trying to get ideas. Thanks again and I hope you enjoy the dyson. I plan to get one later this year.
