Tangle-free Turbine tool
The only turbine tool that doesn’t tangle. Counter-rotating heads with brushes remove hair and dirt. There’s no brush bar for hair to wrap around, it’s released straight into the bin.

I have two dogs that are medium and long haired. I have "killed" a few vacuums over the years due to all of the dog hair. This one has been great! It's easy to put together and very easy and comfortable to use. When I first received it I intended to try it out on just the living room, but I ended up vacuuming the entire house and my car. I love it! I really like the washable filter feature since those are the objects that get clogged so often.TwoDumbDogs
Delightful Product
The cons are that the beater bar is maybe 2/3 or 1/2 the length of an upright's, so it takes longer to vacuum, and the canister really is small. The canister is rated at 2 cups, but it only takes less than a cup of dirt. You don't want so much dirt collecting that you need a stick to clean out the canister because the fuzz is stuck in there.

The pros are ease of use & maneuverability, GREAT CLEANING, and washable filters. I was surprised that I had to rinse out the filters "every month." But after filling the canister 4x, I checked the filters and they were hardly dirty and didn't need cleaning. So I think I will go every 3 months before cleaning the filters.

I bought this Dyson for the allergy rating and because I needed a vacuum that would reach under my queen size bed with only a 4 1/2" clearance. This product height at the ball is only 3 1/4 inches.

5-year warranty.

Walmart offers 2 options for buying this product online for the same price. Be sure to pick the one where you get a bonus set of cleaning attachments.

Great product and I'm very happy!GreenThumbSDs
power packed and compact
This little canister is a beast! I live in a single bedroom 568 sq ft apartment with low to medium traffic.

Just 2 months prior to purchasing the DC47 animal I had my carpets professionally cleaned.

I took the DC47 to them and was amazed at the amount of dust and fuzz it took up!

It's easy to set up, use, empty, and store. All very important for my busy schedule and limited space. Best of all it works well!

Definitely worth the investment.AncientSchen
Hard worker
This machine is one hard worker! Great on floors, great on carpets, great on furniture! Fits nicely under furniture. Only thing I do wish was that the cord was longer.
Worth the cost, and a must if you have pets! Also great if you have allergies!CleanHouseInTx
Outstanding in every way
I'm 72+ and this little giant is the best vacuum I have ever used. It is most ideal for me at this age and physical condition. It is light weight, so easy to carry, move around, and so easy to maintain. And it does an outstanding job of vacuuming the entire house.skiram
Worth the money
I had always heard about dyson's but hesitated buying one because it was to expensive. After our old vacumn stopped working after 6 months I gave in and bought the dyson. I tried it out and was very surprised when it picked up half a cup full of dirt on area vacuumed that day. I am very happy with my dyson and have and would recommend it to others.Retrogirl32
DC47 Animal Review
Does a good job of picking up dust and dirt and you can dump it out and see what you have picked up,whre with a bag you don't know when is clogged or full. All tools are with you and easy to change from one to another.
However to sweep my house I have to plug and unplug the electric cord 7 times, because of the short cord. My old vac only took 2 change. Also it falls over easily.LJB1
Good machine for hardwoods with some rugs
We are having a good experience with the DC47 so far.

We have hardwood floors and our furniture is open underneath. So the distinct advantages of the machine for us are its maneuverability, low profile, and hard surface capability.

The machine is not strong on carpet, given its air driven beater bar and narrow swath. But if the amount of square footage comprised by rugs and carpet is 25% of your total floor, not exceeding 300 to 400 s.f., I think the machine's limitations will not detract from the overall satisfaction.

We do enjoy the customary Dyson advantages ... The cyclonic suction, filtration, and quality build. Good luck!DRay

When my old stand up Dyson Animal quit, we decided that it was time to upgrade to the canister. Love it. It has such good suction and gets all the dirt that 2 big dogs track in and out of the house. I love all the attachments. I was having issues with the beater bar not moving when I went on my carpet, but a quick call into the call center & a new part is on the way to my front door. I recommend it for anyone that has little room and/or hate lugging around a big vacuum.Cammmmmie
