Any vacuum can pick up big stuff, but it takes a great vacuum to pull out all the fine dust, dirt and dander that gets ground into your rug. This Dyson Vacuum does just that. I am amazed every time I vacuum how much stuff it pulls out of the carpet. The amount of fine dust and dirt in the bottom of the canister is proof of how good this vacuum really is. Anyone who tells you to buy a vacuum with a bag is crazy. I can see how a bag vacuum would loose its suction if it were to pull as much stuff out of the carpet the first time the bag was changed as my Dyson does. The air is cleaner, there is less dust in my house, and my carpets look great. Vacuuming with a Dyson really is fun, and no, I don¿t work for them.
The unit is still working and going strong. So easy to clear out the full bin and we don't miss the old vacuum bags of old. I doubt we'll need another vacuum for a very long time. Just make sure you empty the bin in a well ventilated area or outside would be best.
This is our heavy duty work horse. We have 4 big Malamutes and this vacuum pulls all the hair out of the carpets etc. OK the clear container looks a little gross with all the dirt and hair, but at least you know when it is full and ready to be emptied. We had this one for over 5 years and it is still rocking.
This isn't the newest Dyson design, but it is a solid performer. I've had one of these for many years and it is super-easy to clean and maintain. You also can't beat the price and the like-new quality of the factory refurbished vacuum.
