    DefaultDyson help

    Looking at maybe getting a dyson. I have lots of stairs at my new place so whatever I get needs to be good for lots of stairs I have two floors of carpets (and two carpet stairs) and one floor of hardwood plus one hardwood set of stairs.

    I am looking at the dson motorhead animal
    Dyson DC37 Turbinehead Animal

    VS this costoc one on sale
    Dyson DC32 Motorhead Full Kit Canister Vacuum

    Or maybe just the regular dyson motorhead
    Dyson DC46 Turbinehead

    I got the Dyson Animal light version and I love it, I should have spent the extra money and gotten the big one but I just empty it more often, I have tile downstairs, carpet up the stairs (the stairs are bullnosed), hardwood in the loft, carpet in the bedrooms, and tile in the bathrooms. The Dyson goes from any surface with a push of a button, the stairs aren't a back breaker like they were with my old vacuum, I really like it. I did get a pet Roomba for downstairs and it's pretty awesome, too. I have heard the Shark products are really good, too.

    Also, emptying and cleaning it is really easy, I do take the air compressor to it once in a while as well.

    My Dyson is the older yellow model. It is a great machine. The hose comes off and I use it for the stairs. Only complain is the whole machine when together is a little heavy for me to carry up 16 stairs. It is do-able, but on vaccum days I usually try to get the hubby to carryit up for me. They are great on dog hair.

    I HATE my Dyson.
    It is way to heavy and awkward, especially using it on stairs.
    Hate it.

    It cleans well, but I am exhausted and my arms and wrists hurt when I am done using it.
    The stair attachment is VERY very stiff also, which makes doing the stairs very difficult. We've had it for 2 years, so I thought it would have loosened up by now...but it hasn't.

    i have the original old, yellow dyson, upright.
    other than it ate some carpet, i love it. not great for steps, as any upright is not easy to use on steps.
    the new ones, i'm told, have a button to raise or lower the part that ate my carpet so it shouldnt happen anymore. it wasnt an isolated incident and many carpet companies, tho they dont tell you when you buy the carpet, will not warrantee if you have a dyson.

    fortunately they were able to weave the two lines that were eaten. i no longer use the dyson on that carpet.

    Bett reminded me....some carpet manufacturers will void the warranty if you use a Dyson on them.
