Ask your question

  • I have always had bag less barrel vacs before but I then got a dyson animal cordless stick and I’m converted it’s the best thing I ever did not chasing power points easy to manourve heaps of attachments it is great for whole house and quick spot cleans



  • We have a Miele Cat and Dog Max which is specifically for pet households. We really like it. It’s certainly the most expensive vacuum cleaner we’ve ever had but it’s really, really good. Dysons are meant to be good as well.



  • This is not a question, there is only one answer DYSON, they can appear expensive but look at all the different types, find the one that suits your purpose the best and get it, even if you have to do an interest free period, I have only ever used this sort of facility once but it was the only way I could get my hubby to let me justify the dyson, I now have two (got the stick one as well now) and I love them, they are just the best and the kids will use them as well, I have never had a fault with them and would replace them in a heart beat if one of them died. do not even consider the price, find a way to get one,



  • dyson, we have had ours for nearly 10 years!!! going to upgrade this year to another one



  • wow lot’s of answers here



  • Bagless dyson



  • I would recommend a bag less that way you never have to buy bags



  • I have a Hoover myself and love it !! Would highly recommend it.



  • i have a dyson clycone bagless i just love my animal hair attachment !!!!!!



  • I use a Nilfisk and I love it although I would also be happy with a Meile



  • My favourite vacuum cleaner is the Dyson. It is bagless and cleans really effectively. It is very strong also and the suction is excellent. I thoroughly recommend it.



  • We have a drain and truly love it.



  • I have a Dyson DC25 we brought it 5 years ago and it hasn’t skipped a beat. With 5 kids hubby and dog it gets used at least daily sometimes twice a day, I cannot reccomend it enough the amount of dirt and dust it gets out of the carpet is crazy, the $$ is quite high but they have no ongoing costs, you simply empty it when it’s full and wash the filter every 3 months.



  • We have a dyson. Its fine but I think for the price you could probably do better in terms of suction ect



  • my electrolux is not too bad i will highly recomend.
