Performance

Have a Dyson upright that is about 6 years old, so we were expecting very good to excellent results. We liked the HEPA filtration of our old vacuum, but when my wife questioned Dyson about this machine she got the run-around as it is apparently not a true HEPA filter (it can be washed with water which was odd). More than that, bare floor performance was awful. It would not even pick up a couple pieces of dry cat food. The pieces would just fall out of the machine when it was turned off. Wife complained that is was difficult to maneuver. Carpet performance was very good however. Animal attachment was sub-par. When trying to vacuum off our cat tree, hair just accumulated on the entrance to the tool and was not sucked in. Pretty much worthless for our use. Other attachments were flimsy and cheap (we like our older Dyson attachments better). Overall pretty disappointed and had to return it. Considering a Eureka to replace it (at less than half the price).

I've owned one of these things for about three years. During that time, it has been in the shop for repair 6 times, mostly with the beater section being the problem. If this machine happens to pull a thread from the carpet, it shreads the over-priced and difficult to install drive belt instantly. The cog wheel which turns the belt is so poorly designed that these belts have to be replaced about every hour and a half of use time. I've grown to hate this machine worse than anything I've ever owned, and recently replaced it with a refurbished little Hoover which is lightyears more reliable and actually cleans the carpets better. Don't buy a Dyson. It's heavy on advertisement and short on engineering. You may 'get what you pay for' most of the time, but not with this expensive hemmorhoid of a vacuum cleaner.

Product Overview

The Dyson DC41 Animal upright vacuum cleaner is ideal for pet owners, designed to help remove more dirt, dust, allergens and pet hair from your home. It features Radial Root Cyclone™ technology that won’t lose suction and remodeled airflows to maximize power. The DC41 Animal provides the strongest suction at the cleaner head by self-adjusting to different floor types, minimizing air leaks without any knobs or dials to adjust.

DC41 Animal features Dyson Ball™ technology making it easier to steer closer to edges, and into hard to reach places with a turn of the wrist. The DC41 Animal also includes a mini turbine head to clean dirt and pet hair from tight and hard to reach places such as upholstery or in the car. The instant release wand stretches up to 5 times in length for stairs and high reach cleaning.

Clear bin allows you to see when it’s full and empties at the push of a button, minimizing contact with dirt and allergens. DC41 Animal has a lifetime washable filter and there are no bags, belts or filters to buy. It comes with a 5 year parts and labor warranty.
