Thankyou for this, I'll look at these links, I think that all of this information should be included with the instructions and at the very least labelling should also be on the instructions. I have internet access but not everyone uses the internet.

Good enough suction, but don’t buy because you loved the Dyson Classic.

great suction, pity about the plastic

published

Although its a great suction unit for getting dog hair off almost everything (with 3 goldens its a must !) I find that the brush bar is not very long lasting - and tends to break off easily - I have had to replace it once in the first 12 months, so that was okay, under warranty, and now it has happened again over the last couple of months, the machine itself is out of warranty, but the brush is only 12 months old, so waiting to see if under warranty - hope so, these days things are not made to last -

Great all round vacuum

published

I love this vacuum. We have a cat who sheds all year round so we have to vacuum very regularly. We have tiled floors as well as a few rugs through the house and it is great for day to day use. It doesn’t quite get all the bits off of a plush rug in comparison to our last vacuum so you have to spend quite some time going back and forth but for a flat rug and the floor boards it’s perfect. As it’s a ball vacuum, I’ve not experienced it tipping over when pulling it around like I have with others similar. The only thing I’d prefer is longer bristles on the head as when vacuuming the timber floor, it can sometimes scratch so you have to be careful.

Don't Waste Your Money

published

I saved my money to by this product as it was all that you heard was the best brand money could buy. I had purchased a Miele cat and dog previously but was sick and tired of having to buy bags for it . So I changed. What a terrible decision that was. The first time I used it fabulous heavy duty suction. Then the next time a bit less and within a month no better than the cheap vacuums. So disappointed with this as I spent a lot of money on it. Will never buy another Dyson product overated.

Best vacuum I have used in years

published

It's a great vacuum all round the mucsel head tool, the extensible pole and all the attachments it comes with.
The suction is awesome and pick up a lot of dirt and pet hair from the carpet. It's cinetic technology is great. The barrel is big so you can do the whole house before it needs to be emptied. And the other feature I like is there is no filter to clean

Powerful suck

published

I use this vacuum predominantly on hard floor. It is very powerful. It's very easy to maintain. Please note that all bagless vacuum cleaners need to have their filters cleaned regularly for optimum performance.

Dyson for BIG Family

published

I use the vacuum over different types of flooring - tiles and carpet
I have found that it is fantastic depending on which head you use. The one that is standard works reasonably ok.
It is definitely the best vacuum I have used but for the money...........it could be better

Animal Hair Beware - it’s gone!

published

Outstanding suction on this vacuum. It has the capacity to collect large particles through to fine dust and handles a range of floor types from carpet to polished concrete. It comes with an attachment to clean animal hair off material furniture which is amazing. It is outstanding for those with lung health issues.

Great suction vacuum cleaner

published

This cleaner has great suction and you really notice the difference after using a standard cleaner or even a ducted system. The cord retracts like V8 racing car and is easy to empty as well.
If I had to find a 'fault' it would be that when you remove the barrel to empty it the catch on the bottom of the barrel doesn't always attach/close properly and you end up with a mess on the floor when the bottom flap opens. To be fair I showed the agent this problem and they replaced the barrel for me. I still have to be very careful to manually push to catch to make sure it is closed. It seems to be a design fault. Not sure if it needs a larger clip or what could rectify this but in all I love my Dyson.

Easy to use and no filter

published

Easy to use, great suction and no cleaning of the filter required. The additional attachments are great for stairs and blinds and the new handle means it's easy to push around.

Great Suction minimal effort

published

So far so good. I have hard floors and multiple rugs and I needed a vacuum that would cope well with both. The suction on the rugs is fantastic. I like my stick for small jobs but this is a serious cleaner. I note the on off switch and cord retraction buttons are flimsy compared to previous machines so the jury is still out on those but the machine is easy to use and effortless the move around.

Cheap plastic

published

Clip on the barrel always gets stuck after emptying the barrel and I have to hold down clip to close barrel. Multi floor head works good on timber floors, brought turbo head separately for my rugs. I like the extra tools that come with the vacuum and the cord has a good length. But the vacuum cleaner plastic components feel cheap

Waste of money

published

Had an old school Dyson years ago and have fumbled our way through a myriad of cheaper alternatives for about 10 years.
Latest purchase was a Big ball allergy - quietly Hoping for quality once again.
Alas, it’s rubbish- outer wheel cover snapped off within 4 weeks. Persevered without it as needed a vacuum cleaner and now the head just flicks crap everywhere and it doesn’t pick anything up. $5 dustpan from BUNNINGS would out perform it.
Now the warranty cycle begins. More cheap plastic crap on the market, trust eroded.

The Biggest mistake Dyson have ever made . Useless if you have dirt or dust in your carpet.

published

I was forced to buy a new dyson when my old upright burned out the head motor after getting some hair caught in it. Until then it was the best ever. I could not get a replacement motor for it so I went ahead and purchased the Cinetic Big Ball Animal. On the first clean of the floor it blocked the non replaceable filter inside, and started blowing dust all around the room. When I tried to contact dyson Australia to resolve the problem I got a message saying that they were no longer taking support Phone Calls. And I checked on their website and it reflected that there were too many calls for them to answer so they shut the lines down. Beware as this is not a good sign. I am very worried.
