Dyson DC41 Animal Complete


It's because of that reputation that I was so stunned by the Dyson DC41 Animal Complete. As vacuums go, it's excellent, putting up nearly untouchable numbers in many of our performance tests. But in terms of design, it's a colossal disappointment. I...

The Dyson DC41 Animal Complete cleans like you'd expect it to given the high price tag. The clever Tangle-free Turbine and its many other brush attachments give it an added layer of functionality for more-flexible housecleaning.

Dyson is renowned for its design, but maybe it shouldn't be -- this vacuum suffers from several baffling build oversights.

You don't need to pay $649 to own a vacuum that cleans at this level, and if you are paying that much, you deserve a machine with a better design than this.

Dyson DC41 Animal


We also read a few complaints about wheels that fall off, and some users say the plastic construction doesn't seem durable and is prone to cracks over time. However, those reviewers say Dyson honors the ample five-year warranty and readily sends...

Powerful suction, Good at removing pet hair, Self-adjusting brush head

No onboard attachment storage, Non-retractable cord, Plastic parts prone to cracks

Dyson DC41 Animal


The Dyson DC41 is a fairly new product from Dyson. It is their latest Ball Upright vacuum cleaner and reviews are quite good to date. The DC41 has undergone significant redesign to optimize performance and the result is a very powerful machine with...

Active base plate feature is very effective ; Long power cord ; Very strong suction ; Attachments lock in place ; Brushbar with on/off controls ; Hose extends easily ; Good at picking up pet hair ; Long hose

No automatic cord rewind ; Wand is a bit awkward to use ; Expensive ; Not easy to get under furniture ; Some folks find it a bit heavy

You can read more Dyson DC41 customer reviews on Amazon here if you wish. Many owners compare this unit with the DC25 Animal. Most indicate that they like the DC41 Animal better but not all. The main differences between the two are as follows: Weight:...

Dyson DC41 Animal


Solid build and high performance, but with an even higher price tag

Efficient with electricity usage; Ideal for short carpets or hardwood floors

Difficult to use on high-pile carpets; Cleaner head takes up lot of space

Dyson DC 41 - Pocket-lint


Dyson continues to roll out, no pun intended, its new ball technology to the 2012 range of vacuum cleaners. The hope being you'll get your cleaning done

Small, compact, lightweight, powerful,

Not much

We are really impressed with the cleaning performance of the Dyson DC41. It coped well with our house, alarmingly managing to fill half a bucket, even though we had cleaned with our previous vacuum (also a Dyson) a couple of days earlier. In fact Mrs...

Dyson DC41 Mk2 Animal


Perfect for pet owners... If you can stomach the price

Powerful and manoeuvrable ; Comprehensive set of accessories ; Outstanding pet hair removal ; Great stair-cleaning features


Great overall performance, fabulous tools and easy manoeuvrability make the DC41 Animal one of the very best upright cleaners money can buy, whether you have pets or not. The only sharp intake of breath is that hefty price tag.

Refurbed?? this vacuum SUCKS! :)


This vacuum looked new out of the box. One of the attachments wasn't shipped with the unit. I contacted the seller via email, and they immediately shipped out the attachment ; First rate seller experience and i LOVE my Dyson

DC41, well used, works great tho


Way cleaver enginnering, but can't 'lock' the handle upright? Some folks get refurbs that look brand new. Mine was well used. Ball is big, so you can't vac as easily under tables and chairs as you might be used to. Brush end is short and gets nicely...

Refurb half price of new!!! Works WAY better than Windtunnel. Quieter than any other vac I have owned. Pet hair upholstery attachement works great

Per reviews on other sites that I agree with...Handle doesn't 'lock' upright to wheel around the house. Plastic seems a bit cheap, but they are all making them this way now. A bit top heavy. Wobbles and unwieldy when using attachments, thus requires...
