My old Dyson DC25 finally gave up after 14 years of dedicated service, so rather than try and get it repaired I figured it was time to get a replacement. I looked at all the usual suspects, and given that I already have a perfectly functional Dyson handled, I didn’t want another cordless one. In the end I decided to go for as close-a-replacement as I could and settled on the Dyson Animal Multifloor. My only complaint so far is the sheer amount of packaging this thing consumes. It would be far more efficient to just ship it fully built in one single box with large air bags around it. Anyway, I digress… It does go together easily, and when I first switched it on and put it on low pile carpet/deep clean mode, I was gobsmacked at just how much suction power this thing had! Proper workout pushing this thing around but switch to medium pile and it’s like my old one in terms of effort. My house is reasonably small but mostly carpet, but even then there was around an inch of dust and other unseen mess in the dust collector that my other vacuum hadn’t been picking up. I know that any new modern vacuum would have been an improvement but still… In terms of longevity time will tell, people complain of blockages, but then those people probably don’t clean their filters and maintain their device. I found it perfectly steady enough, when using the wand, and the various attachments make light work of dusting and stairs. If like me you want a corded vacuum that performs, you can’t really go too far wrong, and with Dyson’s reputable brand, build quality and customer service behind it, makes for a fairly safe bet.
