Best vac I've ever owned
Bought this 2nd hand and it's never missed a beat. This vacuum is light to handle, runs and swivels smoothly from wooden and tiled floors to carpeted rugs picking up everything in its path including hair. Yes hair, have family of girls with long hair. Never had a blockage to deal with and no tangled hair to dislodge from a brush. Emptying it afterwards is the easiest thing ready to go for the next time use. The pressure trigger on the handle for lighter cotton blend rugs when I don't need full suction is great. It's powerful but quiet compared to previous vacuums and doesn't take up much space to store away. I hope this keeps running for many more years to come.
Best Vacuum ever!
I've had this vacuum nearly 12 years paid 399 for it at the time on special. Such a shame Dyson don't make them like they used to! Recently purchased the animal cincetic and return it, terrible quality. Great customer service but. Dyson please return to the way you used to make them!!

13 years old and still running well bought from Harvey Norman in 2008. Just today purchased V12 exclusive to Dyson model and got a 15% discount with free shipping as an exciting happy Dyson customer. Looking forward to use new V12 model in my new house with timber flooring. Thank you Dyson !

13 years still like off the showroom floor
Have moved around a lot in 13 years. Used on carpet, tiles, wood, concrete, rubber and many more. Has never missed a beat. A little bulky and noisy but the suction is epic. Well worth the money at the time of purchase.
Purchased in October 2007 at Harvey Norman for $450.00.
11yrs old and going strong
Used once a week for 11 years. Lots of stairs, carpets, hard floors, long human hair and multiple homes. Flaw 1: not perfect with big bits (need to lift and place head onto them or remove head altogether). Flaw 2: a bit awkward to vac stairs. Pros: very effective suction for 11 years - the grime it pulled out of carpet each time I’d moved in to a new place was phenomenal and disgusting. Easy to use and maintain. It also helped reducing my asthma at home. I had one fault with the machine 2.5 years in, the turbine head stopped spinning. Dyson rep...laced within the week (out of warranty) free of charge. No issue since. I’m refurbing it this week with third-party filters and a clean. About to add a v10 or V11 to the household thanks to my Dyson experience to date.

Perfect type of vacuum

Purchased in January 2019 at Harvey Norman Online for $499.00.
A great vacuum
I have mostly timber floors and so to have a vacuum be able to clean them well is important. The floor tool is a must for this vacuum - I brought mine separately. It's a little noiser than I would like and I can't get parts from Dyson anymore which is disappointing.
Purchased in July 2017 at eBay for $299.00.
12 Years & Going Strong
We Love our Dyson. Great investment that we can’t live without. It is great on carpet and on our new floor boards. We’ve used it inside and our outdoor entertaining area. It’s great with the attachments for the car as well. We purchased extra filters when we bought it so we can rinse and still use it without stopping.
Good machine but with no spare part it is useless!!!
10 years on and Dyson cannot provide me with pre and post filters whoch cost around $40 together. Instead, I was told to outsource them from Dyson Uk or buy another machine with 25% off!!!! The issue here is that why I should pay another $700-800 for. New machine while my current machine works and only need $40 worth of parts?? I found it very Un Ethical by Dyson for not providing spare parts and forces its customers to purchase another machine which would end of being “partless” in so many years and the story continues on. Bery happy with the ...machine itself but extremely disapointed with the tactic Dyson uses to sell its products. I was even told by Dyson Customer service that I dont have to buy another Dyson product!!! What a great way of keeping their loyal customer.
Doesn’t suit tall people
I find this machine excellent. However like most vacuum cleaners the “wand” or the bit you run over the floor needs to form a seal between the head and the floor to get full suction. If you’re tall, you have to bend over to achieve the right angle and get head in full contact with the floor to be effective. Otherwise, you’ll leave a gap around the head of the brush and air will leak in.
If you’re 150 cm tall then the length of the wand is perfect. If you’re 195cm tall, then this cleaner doesn’t match your body height. I dare say the latest models,would be just as bad.
Best vacuum ever.
Used this Dyson for 10 years now, and is still going strong. Never missed a beat. Would only ever buy a Dyson now if this one ever packs it in. It's fairly heavy and noisy, but can't fault the suction whether its on carpet or floorboards, and that's what its all about. I also do the venetian blinds and mattresses.
Best vacuum I've ever had.
The only bad thing about this vacuum is that it has lifted my expectations and to this day I have not found a better vacuum.
If there was one single item I could bring back to life other than my pet fish Bill who jumped out of its tank when I was 4 it would be this model!
Can't live without my dyson
My Dyson DC 19 is still going strong after 5 years of daily use. I've used my dyson on both carpets, tiles and wooden floors. The filter only needs cleaning every 6 months or so and is so easy to do. The suction is still fantastic. I love my dyson.
I found my Dyson in a skip bin which had a burnt out motor. i replaced the motor for $45 which I found on eBay and 30 minutes to install. That was 5 yrs ago and still runs absolutely fine. The negative reviews I really don't understand as my Dyson is awesome
After 9 years, the motor on my faithful but very expensive Dyson DC19 died with a cough and the smell of burnt electrics. I contacted their service centre to see what my options were regarding a repair only to be told that the DC19 is now a "retired" machine, with no parts available for repairs. I was offered a 25% discount on the RETAIL price of a new Dyson, which was pleasing to hear, but given the price of their products even 25% off leaves the Dyson still an expensive purchase. This could be an attractive proposition, if one could be sur...e that the product was a little more robust. It is not unreasonable to expect that a highly engineered and high priced product to have some longevity factored into it's construction. The only conclusion I can draw is that to save a few cents at the time of purchase, the engineering did not extend to the motor. I have a 25 year old Panasonic still going well, which begs the question why can't Dyson engineer the motors on their vacuums to be likewise. Reading these pages it would seem my case is not an isolated case, rather, it would seem to be the rule.
Questions & Answers
Bought in November 2008 with a turbine head, with all accessories.
In excellent condition. What would it be worth approximately.
Hi , where can I buy a new or refurbished turbo head for my Dyson DC 19.
We do apologise for any disappointment, however due to the age of the DC19 range, the DC19 range of machines has been retired and we are no longer able to provide spare parts or accessories for this machine.
That being said, we do have an offer available for DC19 owners. Please get in touch with our Dyson Experts with the serial number of your machine handy to find out more. You can find our contact details here: https://www.dyson.com.au/support/contact-us
