The DC47 Animal from Dyson features 32 inner cyclones arranged in two tiers that work in parallel to increase airflow and capture more microscopic dust. Because canister vacuums with wheels can be awkward to maneuver, the DC47 Animal has Ball technology allowing the vacuum to pivot on the spot with the pivot point located near the center of the machine. A spring-loaded cuff absorbs sudden movement to help the machine follow you as you use it. Axle bearings reduce friction, enabling the ball to rotate smoothly.

I waited a long time for my 15yr old Kenmore to kick the bucket before making this kind of investment. I am very pleased with the suction power. The power cord is a little short compared to what I am used to. Easy to assemble. I am highly disappointed with how easy the rotary brush tangles with hair. I have 3 females in my house with long hair including myself, and we all "shed". The second time I used this vacuum the rotary brush clogged and I had to use scissors to cut it out. In the 15yrs I had my Kenmore, hair NEVER clogged the rotary brush, it was usually something like a long piece of string or something my kids left laying around I didn't notice. For such a powerful suction, and the cost of the product, one would think Dyson would have a more sturdy rotary brush. This is my only complaint about the product and my reason for the Good rating.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great suction as advertised. However, hair easily clogs the rotary brush. Be cautious if you have a houseful of females with long hair

I'm a HUGE Dyson fan. I think their vacuums are the BEST. I didn't realize there was both a "compact" version and the regular version of the canister vacuum and purchased the wrong one. This one would be fine for a studio or small apartment but I have a large house and it would take all day to vacuum and dump the canister over and over with this compact unit. Overstock has been amazing and allowed me to exchange it for the one I should have purchased in the beginning.
This little vac has a lot of power and is very portable. Our previous vacuum was really difficult to carry up and down the stairs. It picks up an amazing amount of dirt (the really fine stuff!) but does require very frequent emptying-a messy task. We have two shedding dogs so we generate a lot of fur and this sucks it up easily. The jury is out on longterm durability but I have my fingers crossed
Love the look and style! Works well, all the pieces snap together and apart like a dream, except the dumping canister. I find that operation slightly difficult when emptying and re-closing. The entire body is extremely light, easy to carry but tips over frequently while navigating over brick floors.
Overall I am happy with it but not as ecstatic as I imagined I would be ;)
