Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Wish it had one thing
My previous brand vacuum cleaner weighted 26 lbs!! What a pleasure it is to use my 11 lb Dyson. I have a long haired cat and it works great on the animal hair. I just wish I could purchase a larger head for the carpets. It is a shame your parts aren't interchangeable. I would purchase the larger one. All in all, a great machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer good "but"
My whole house is hard surface flooring. I have engineered hardwood and ceramic tile. I have three dogs. I vacuum every day. When I first got my vacuum it did not include the floor attachment. I didn't think I'd need it because they SAY it would work on all surfaces. I found out that is NOT true. The all purpose attachment that came with it sucked much too hard to the hardwood to do anything more than scrape it. So I had to rig up a way to use a dust mop and the hose. After three years of that laborious job, I complained to Dyson and they sent me the floor attachment. It works very well. Now I can vacuum like any other human being and it gets up the dog hair quite nicely. That attachment SHOULD be sold with the vacuum. OR don't advertise that it works well on all surfaces.

I just got this as a wedding gift and I LOVE it!!! It is so easy to change the attachments which makes cleaning quick and easy. I have all wood floors and a couple area rugs. It is hard to find a vacuum that works on wood and has good suction, the suction on it is fabulous. I used it to clean my husband's car and the suction was as good as the one at the car wash. I couldn't be happier with it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aim828 This vacuum really does the job
Goes from tile to carpet, picks up everything, use it on the stairs, in the car. It is easy to move with you and is really powerful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NCBree LOVE this vacuum...BUT
I really love this vacuum and it did an amazing job getting up the dog hair that had taken up seemingly permanent residence in my old carpet. It is super lightweight and has amazing suction. I thought I would be disappointed that the head was smaller and would take what seemed twice as many strokes to vacuum but instead it was way better than my old one. Because it was smaller I could get into more cracks and crevices. plus it was so light it did not matter that I had to go over more times.
Two small things though - I am a little taller (5ft 8in) and I have to stoop a little because the handle on the brush head is just a little too short. Not a big deal because my house is not too big but if I had a lot of space to do I would get tired. Second for all you pay, they couldn't put a light on the brush head? Now I can get into all of these places that I couldn't before because of the awesome design, but I can't see if I am about to suck up something really bad.

I named my little dyson Sugar, since suga means suck in Swedish and I thought the name appropriate since these smaller canister vacuums are so cute! But don't let the looks fool you, this lil thing is a beast.
I bought my DC47 recently but haven't used it at home yet since I just moved, however I did take it to work and cleaned my office which I don't think has been vacuumed for years. I think I could taxidermy a small animal out of the amount of hair it pulled and we're talking about only a cubicle sized office. I'm so impressed with the weight, how easy I can get to every little nook and cranny by the way the nozzle rotates. There were some long hairs that did get tangled up in the nozzle but since I'm easily able to remove it, it took but a minute to get it clean again. It's really quiet too and just overall makes me want to use it more often. I don't see vacuuming so much a burden anymore! Highly recommend this model if you hate upright vacuums like me, got a small place, and have tight spots you need to get to.
