Dyson DC65 Animal Complete Upright Vacuum Cleaner
Dyson DC65 is a powerful vacuum cleaner with an equally impressive price tag. I had to think hard and long about dropping 5+ Franklins on a vacuum cleaner, but I have no regrets. It is compelling, and after only a few cleanings, the carpets are already looking several years newer and younger. It does need a narrower, extended narrow opening attachment.
The one attachment included with the brush attached just doesn't cut getting into the underneath furniture and smaller areas. Otherwise, the assembly was a breeze, and it is effortless to manoeuvre. Cleaning and emptying the catch canister couldn't be easier or cleaner. Just push a button halfway down to remove the cartridge and hold the canister over the disposal device and press the same button all the way down. With the bottom drops, all the dirt falls out.
I also love the dedicated motor for the brush... no more belt issues. I'm in love with this vac. This thing is amazing. I was waiting for the day when my Hoover would give out so I could get this. When we bought a new house with wall-to-wall carpet, my husband spoiled me.
Yes, this is quite expensive but worth it. The first time I used it on a mat in 1 room that I had just vacuumed with my Hoover, the bin was full. I had to sweep it several more times and could not believe how much dirt this thing could get out. (Again, this was in just ONE room)!
One feature I am super in love with is the roller brush button. We just installed Berber carpet in 3 rooms. When we ordered the rug in store, the salesman never explained that we couldn't use the roller brush on Berber.
I'm so glad we got this vacuum now as, often when you turn the roller brush off on a space, the suction is not enough to get the dirt. This thing works AMAZING. It is more difficult to push without the roller brush on, but it is saving our brand new carpet, and I'm super thankful for that.
I haven't used a ton of the attachments yet, but I'm still learning them. The extension hose of the cleaner is Wonderful, to get those nooks and crannies it reaches far enough. I love the fact that 2 of the attachments are right on the machine, so it is super quick and easy to switch back and forth between vacuuming duties.
The canister is very easy to clean, as well as the filters. I often don't wash my filters. This vacuum makes work easy.
The power cord of the vac is wonderfully long, allowing me to finish 1-2 rooms in our big house without switching outlets. I like that as, again, I am a lazy bum.
I read on a review that this vacuum eliminates the "car perimeter" (a word he made up) and it is so true that I think about that word every time I vacuum around my floorboards. It is fantastic on the perimeter and super easy to manoeuvre.
I can't say enough about this one. Worth EVERY penny!
