Dyson DC17 Animal Review

 

The Dyson DC17 Animal gets good customer ratings – and there are many ratings available as this is a popular machine. Consumer comments indicate that it does indeed work very well on removing pet hair from most surfaces. It can be a bit heavy for some...

Very good at removing pet hair (most consumers agree on this)- Easy to maneuver- Strong suction- Dirt canister is easy to empty- Not too loud- Brushroll can be turned on and off

Poor detail/instructions in manual- Only average on bare floors (best on carpet)- Attachments don’t work that well on bare floors- Hose is stiff- Heavy machine

The DC17 Animal has a motorized brushbar which can be turned on or off (via the touch of a button). The ability to turn the brushbar off is useful when transitioning from carpet to other more delicate flooring (like some hardwood floors or delicate rugs).

A-FREAKIN-MAZING!

 

It sucks, it pulls out dust, pet hair, everything. Vaccuum your house with your current vaccuum and THEN with this! You'll get buckets of dust and hair you didn't know was still in there! Saved us from buying two new rugs already

Can't think of any.. wasn't free

Our first Dyson...

 

I went to a local store to look at the Dyson vacuums. This one caught my eye for my parents since I thought the ball vacuum would be a little harder for them to maneuver. The store was asking the original $449. They price-matched, but not to websites...

great suction, easy to clean, easy to maneuver, picks up the dust and dirt you never notice, brush does good job in lifting the carpet, easy roller shut-off button for vacuuming hardwoods/tile/vinyl, great for all-floors, hose is nice and long

removing the vacuum hose is slightly annoying but not unbearable

Awesome Results

 

I have 6 cats and 1 dog. I NEEDED this vacuum. I finally bit the bullet and bought one. I love it, with a couple of reservations. First, the container which replaces bags needs to be larger. It's tedious constantly emptying it. Larger would have been...

Good Vacuum

 

I feel like a vacuum is something that is worth spending good money on, but I appreciate that with overstock.com you can buy a Refurbished vacuum at a great price, but still get great quality. I would most def. recommend this item to anyone. I had no...
