I can't believe the dirt this thing picks up.
It's so well designed and relatively quiet for the amount
of power that it has which is quite a lot.
Everything is very intuitive and it sets up in seconds.
It is so well made you feel it will last a lifetime.
I would recommend this vacuum to anyone, especially
people with pets, or allergies. Try using your nomal vacuum in
an area and then go over the same area with this Dyson. The
additional dirt the Dyson picks up is almost scary.
We previously had a Dyson Animal upright and just did not like the configuration. It was too heavy to easily vacuum the stairs, it was too tall to vacuum under almost any of our furniture and using the hose/wand was a major hassle. This canister is small, light, powerful, goes almost anywhere with ease and overall does a great job. We are very pleased with this machine.
The Dyson DC23 Animal is a powerful canister vacuum, designed for homes with pets. DC23 Animal features Dyson Level 3 Root Cyclone™ technology, the most efficient technology for capturing microscopic dust. This canister features an air-driven brush bar, which spins up to 90 times per second, and is ideal for cleaning medium and short pile carpets. It can also be turned off for hard floors and delicate surfaces. Included with the DC23 Animal is the Mini turbine head attachment that removes pet hair and dirt from hard to reach places such as upholstery, stairs and the car. Also included with the DC23 Animal is the Articulating hard floor tool. It articulates for easy maneuverability and has long bristles to prevent scratching or marketing on wood or delicate floors.
DC23 Animal has a lightweight adjustable wand. An extension tube adjusts to the length you want, and it is sealed, to maximize airflow and increase suction at the floor tool. It also features a detachable handle, which allows you to fit tools directly to the end of the hose, for cleaning in tighter places. DC23 Animal has a smoother cable rewind system, with increased torque so it’s faster than before, and less likely to catch on obstacles. The unit is designed to sit on your stairs while you vacuum them, making cleaning easier. The clear bin, made of tough polycarbonate, lets you see when it’s ready to empty, and is hygienic and quick to empty, minimizing contact with dirt.
DC23 Animal is made from the strongest plastics available to withstand bumps and bruises. It is certified asthma & allergy friendly™ by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, and with a lifetime HEPA filter and no bags to buy, DC23 Animal has no extra costs. It carries a 5 year warranty, parts and labor, and comes complete with brush, stair and crevice tool attachments. As with all Dyson vacuum cleaners, DC23 Animal has no loss of suction.
