Dyson DC41 Animal Vacuum Overview
DC41 Animal bagless cyclone upright vacuum cleaner is a 17 pound, powerful 12 amp bagless vacuum. This Dyson Ball upright vacuum that’s been engineered to be a light weight, all floor vacuum; a pet hair vacuum, and yes, also a pet vacuum (ie: dog grooming).
Dyson ball technology gives this dyson vacuum precise maneuverability, so it’s easy to use.This cyclonic Pet Hair Vacuum uses the latest Radial Root Cyclone technology, which gives it the strongest suction at the cleaner head of all Dyson vacuums.
Its labeled “animal pet vacuum”, but it’s also engineered for all floors. It has an active base plate that automatically self-adjusts to different heights and it appears to be the most proficient vacuum for cleaning carpets and hardwood floors; and even tile flooring.
This base plate adjustment reduces air leaks to maintain maximum suction. There’s virtually no loss of suction. In other words, it will remove dust, dirt and pet hair from the home with ease.
There are many specialized accessories for sale (the pet grooming attachment, pet allergy prevention/clean-up kits, etc), but when you buy the Dyson DC41 some bonus tools are included. Additionally, it has Dyson’s 5 year warranty, a quick start guide, and the full operating manual.
DC 41 Animal has Dyson’s latest cyclone technology, “Radial Root Cyclone technology”.
Engineers remodeled airflow channels to maximize suction, reduce turbulence and maintain air pressure (a whopping Constant 235 AW [Air Watts]). This particular animal vacuum captures more fine dust and allergens than any other cyclone vacuum. Basically, a lot more microscopic particles are extracted from the home using the suction created by inner cyclones. The waste is stored in the sealed hygienic push button dust bin until it is removed from the home.
Dyson DC41 Animal Pros and Cons
The GOOD NEWS about Dc41 Pet Vacuum :
When you combine very light weight, “turns on a dime” maneuverability, powerful 12 amp lossless, very strong suction and a deep cleaning beater bar, vacuuming is much faster because the cleaner pulls up deeply ingrained grime, sand and dirt in one pass. You don’t have to repeatedly go over the same spot. A real time saver.
Long-Term, Additional Expenses for the DC 41?
WARRANTY covers parts and labor for 5 years. NO FILTERS , NO BELTS, and NO VACUUM BAGS to buy. Simpler, Cleaner Bagless waste disposal= minimal mess with the push button hygienic (clear) dust bin.
Lifetime belts and HEPA FILTER - Washable, reusable vacuum filter EXPELS CLEANER AIR cause it captures pollen, mold and bacteria. This Dyson vacuum is Certified asthma and allergy friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. Personally I thought this was a nice added touch.
Another thing to consider: The Powerful dyson ball vacuum 12 amp motor and the new Radial Root Cyclone Technology make this vacuum cleaner competent to handle most house cleaning tasks.
“B.S” happens sometimes, but it’s very likely this “sucker” will last for at least the 5 year warranty period. I guess for me, this is helps to justify the high cost a little bit.
Is this Upright bagless vacuum Ergonomic and Convenient to use?
Well, in short, … I think, as “convenient” as vacuuming is (LOL), this Dyson animal may be the best vacuuming “anesthetic” (besides not vacuuming) .
Strong Suction - Quickly and easily sucks up all animal hair
Smooth Steering - Easy to Use. Easily access awkward spaces with a turn of the wrist (less pushing and pulling)
NO Bending down, NO Awkward Dials to adjust. AUTO ADJUST active base plate sets brush bar and cleaner head configuration for optimal suction
Long Built-in Hose and Telescopic “Instant High Reach Wand ” - Clean stairs and high places (Leave vacuum off the stairs). Hose and wand can be pulled out and extended in a single action.
Click-on tools for the wand are designed for hard-to-reach places.
Extra long 35 foot power cord
A Light Weight vacuum – Convenient handle to lift at your side and carry as you walk
Quiet vacuuming (It’s not inaudible, but there’s a lot worse out there)
What Accessories are Included when you buy Dyson Dc41?
Convertable ”Debris Nozzle/Brush Tool” to pick up larger objects and dusting
“Stair Tool” – Suited for removing dirt and dust from stairs and carpeted areas
“Mini Turbine Head” – Clean pet hair and stubborn dirt. Clean upholstery, the car and stairs.
The BAD NEWS about DC41 Dyson Vacuums :
I dug around to see what dirt I could pull up on it. I found a few “personal -preference-type” peeves and some things that are more important, from different individuals, but below is a list of things that you’ll probably want to be aware of before you buy:
A couple of users have said it doesn’t click into upright, locked position.
I think this would be a bit of a pain for some people while they’re vacuuming. As far as I’m aware of, from all my research, most users don’t have this problem.
If you do have that problem, I’d suggest contacting Dyson vacuum support or simply lean the vac against a couch etc, if you need to walk away for a minute.
I ‘d probably stand it up against a wall in the closet when it’s not in use and/or put a hook on the handle to keep the vacuum upright.
A handful of people reported it was Noisy and Suction was not very good
Most people actually say it’s very quiet. If you get one that has poor suction and is noisy, return it and exchange it for another one ! I wouldn’t hesitate. I don’t think you’ll have any trouble getting an exchange. Especially if you buy from one of the big name, reputable distributors like Amazon, etc.
The odd unit may not perform well. If you’re “lucky enough” to buy a problematic vacuum, I recommend you contact Dyson IMMEDIATELY. ALLOW them correct the problem for you.
It seems they’re confident enough in the quality of this product that they are willing to honor full 5 year warranty (parts and labor).
I believe they sincerely care about their customers, but also they know if they don’t take care of their customers, the word gets around. So your chances are very, very good that they will help you if you encounter a problem.
Some parts seem fragile
I looked into this too, … many parts use polypropylene reinforced with glass fibers and high-impact PC-ABS for greater strength from less material.
Dyson says they engineered it for strength/flexibility, lighter weight and durability. I BELIEVE it may be perceived this way because this new design is less bulky and lighter than older, cheaper models… who knows?
Pushes around objects that are too large for the cleaner head instead of sucking it up
They suggest: First pick up any obvious, larger objects using the instant quick-draw wand, then vacuum the room normally using the all purpose floor cleaner head.
Can’t use ONLY the rear wheels to transport this upright vacuum
When you’ve vacuumed an area and want to go elsewhere, you have 2 choices: You can pick up and carry these vacuums or push it like when you’re vacuuming.
Dyson says the rear wheel are only intended to stabilize the vacuum. They designed the Dyson DC41 with a handle on top of the cyclone canister and made it much lighter, for easy transporting.
A fair number of people agreed that this is a hefty price to pay for a vacuum for cleaning houses.
In the end, basically, the majority of users said that it was not a cheap vacuum to buy, but it is worth the investment.
I found that the people who were very upset about the price were those that either had some sort of functional problem with their Dc 41. Others said it would be “nice” if things like more specialized cleaning tools or more ” XYZ (bells and whistles)” were included with their purchase.
My Final Thoughts:
Overall, Dyson Vacuum Cleaners have a very good reputation and the Dyson warranty is better than most. Feedback from customers that do have problems has ultimately been nearly 100% positive. Dyson DC 41 Animal upright Bagless Vacuum was obviously built with the user’s convenience in mind.
From what I’ve seen, and all things considered, this animal ball upright vacuum is as good or better than anything else on the market and definitely gets my “Best Quality Buy” recommendation. It truly is excellent for dog hair, cat hair, and pet hair.
Is it the best vacuum for pet hair? I think it’s fair to say it’s one of top vacuums for pet hair available today. It thoroughly removes animal hair from your home. Although it isn’t a cheap vacuum, it’s definitely worth the money and the product lives up to its claims. (Now there’s something that’s hard to find these days.)
Even when a product is great and it’ll save you money in the long run, sometimes it’s just tough to come up with the cash. … Been there, … done that.
I don’t know, … ”When there’s a will, there’s a way” kinda comes to mind. If this vacuum cleaner is the right one for you, … you’ll find a way :O)Well, ladies and gents, I hope this review has helped you decide if the dyson dc41 animal vac is a worthy addition to your home.
Live Large !
