Dyson DC41 Animal Complete

 

When you think of Dyson, you probably think: "ingenious design." I know I do. Its products are modern, sophisticated, and undeniably cool. Just look at the Dyson Airblade, one of the most appealing cooling apparatuses ever made. A brilliant idea,...

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.

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:...

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 review

 

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 even quicker than before. But is the Dyson DC41 - the new flagship model - up to the task, or is it...

Small, compact, lightweight, powerful

Not much

While it is too expensive, you can't argue with the Dyson DC41's performance. This is a terrific vacuum cleaner and one that everyone should have, if money were no object.

With Dyson Ball technology and Radial Root Cyclone suction, the Dyson DC41 Animal is both powerful and easy to manoeuvre.

Looks good ; Dyson Ball™ technology ; Radial Root Cyclone ; Self-adjusts for different surfaces

Heavy ; Difficult to put together ; Bad instruction manual

The instruction manual is quite difficult to understand as it’s all in pictures. It could have benefitted from written instructions as well because putting the Dyson DC41 together or disassembling it if something gets stuck in the pipes is a bit of a...

"Not worth the price for the results."

 

1 - The front sits so low to the ground with no way to adjust it I have to lift the whole thing up to pick up a piece of dirt that isn't flat on the ground. My 9 month old cereal, HA! This thing can't do that, unless the object is flat on the ground it...

I do love the way you can clean the Dyson out. It comes apart so easy and goes back just the same. I love that you can wash it with water, set the parts by the heater for the night and it's ready in the morning.

Too many to list with 250 characters...see summary.

"If you deal with hair from pets, buy this vacuum."

 

I have had this vacuum for 4 months now. The lack of a button to take it from the upright to the vacuum position is better than having a button to push. You simply pull down and you are ready to go. With this vacuum I can go from hardwood to carpet...

Incredible cleaning power, easy to use tools and attachments, and emptying the waste is easier than any vacuum I have ever used.

It is different than most traditional vacuums, it will take a little getting used to.

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...

I used my old Canister Vacuum first and emptied it 3x then went behind with the New Dyson and had to empty 3 more times, so seeing that it removed that much more dirt from my Carpets I am happy with the product

None so far
