Dyson animal hoover

Does anyone have this?
Im looking for a new hoover. At the moment I have a cylinder dyson DC05. Im looking to get a dyson dc14 animal. There is always hair left in the carpet, its driving me insane now.

Does anyone have one of these, how good are they?
Im gonna get the stand up one, not cylinder. Ive seen a lot on ebay with replaced motors, is this a problem with them?

I don't have a Dyson or know anyone who does. Hoover is claiming that their machine actually cleans better than a Dyson, though. If that's true, the prices on a Hoover are far more reasonable.

As an aside, do you call all vacuum cleaners "Hoovers" where you're from. Here, it's a brand name (Hoover is headquartered in Canton, OH, or was until just recently). The people here call vacuum cleaners "sweepers." I had never heard the term "sweeper" before I moved to Ohio and I had no idea what people were talking about.

I have the Dyson animal and I love it! I've never had a problem with the motor...you may just be seeing some reconditioned ones.

It has been my experience that Hoover does not outperform Dyson.

I say get the Dyson...you'll be glad you did.

I don't have one myself since we're replacing all the carpet with laminant flooring. But I know at least 100 people with the Dyson Animal that SWEAR by it. Most of which had longhaired cats in multiple numbers.

I really want to get the Dyson Animal vacuum. It's about $500 but we already have a vacuum and my bf says he will get it for me when we move to a house. I said I will vacuum almost everyday (yea right) and he said "OK!"

REMEMBER, YOU ASKED FOR MY TWO CENTS!

First off, all those high priced "HOME OWNER" vacuums are crap! You might have paid a pretty price for it but I can tell you that it will NEVER out perform a commercial unit. Not only that, but for the price you paid for that fancy looking pig you could have purchased a commercial unit. I know this because for YEARS I ran a janitorial company and as such had all the equipment pertaining to the business.

If you really want an excellent quality vacuum that will hold up for YEARS of service, then forget about your local store and instead look at the janitorial supply centers in your area.

There's my two cents on the subject!

Ciao!

Excellent post, Clint! I'm looking to replace my Eureka (the thing keeps falling apart!). I'd love to get an Oreck, but I won't be able to afford that for years. I think I'll start looking at the janitorial supply place. I wouldn't have even thought of it!

I have a shop vac that belonged to work but they got a bigger one 6 months after buying it... if it can suck up insulation fibers it works on animal hair!
