Dyson DC35 Digital Slim Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaner : I’ve never cleaned my house so much!

Needs a more comfortable handle, expensive but quite useful. I bought a manufacturer refurbished model for just under half price with a one year guarantee. I do hope that anything that could have gone wrong with it has gone wrong, been fixed and it will last. As it says in the spec the charge doesn’t last long on max (which i find necessary for pick up), e. I just managed to do the sofa, car seats and hall. However i do love its obvious compact nature, great for the stairs which i hate doing with a full size, and the cleaning is perfectly reasonable. Also handy to avoid lugging a full size up to the loft to do the bedrooms which don’t get very dirty anyway. The handle could be a lot more ergonmonic and comfortable – i get slight wrist strain with it even though i don’t have medical issues. This will not replace my miele cat and dog powerwise but is a useful addition. I wouldn’t have paid the full price for it, even with a 2 year guarantee, that feels really overpriced. Quite happy with it as a secondary.

I really do love this machine. It does a great job as we have pets soi the carpets need a vacuum every day to get the hairs up. Not having to drag a cable around with you makes the job very quick to do. Great in the car as well as the camper. The only downsides to this machine is that the battery only lasts about 10 to 15 minutes before the motor stops and has to be recharged so if you are doing all the house you will need to buy another battery to get everything done. They are on sale though amazon and well worth the extra money. The other problems are that the brush gets hairs all around it and has to be removed from the header and cleaned after each job or it jams in the casing and will not turn around. The dust is difficult to get out of the cylinder when you empty it as it compacts around the inside of the case long before it is full up. I use an old fork to pull it out rather than my fingers. Finally the brush keeps stopping for no reason and needs a good bang on the floor to get it going again.

Quite happy with it as a secondary. Here are the specifications for the Dyson DC35 Digital Slim Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaner:

  • Dyson digital motor – makes DC35 Animal the most power efficient cordless vacuum
  • Patented Root Cyclone technology for no loss of suction
  • Mini motorised tool for effective pet hair removal
  • Detachable long-reach wand – remove it to use DC35 Animal as a handheld
  • Ships in Certified Frustration-Free Packaging

Good little vac very useful as i have a dog that sheds lots of hair but i do find it needs charging up after about 10 mins use.

Hoovering no longer a chore. I own a very hairy dog (siberian husky)who sheds her fur all over the house. I used to have to hoover every two days at least and hated dragging the old hoover around. I hestitated about buying this dyson due to the cost but i’m so glad i did. Hoovering now is fast and easy and no longer a hassle. The wall mount makes it so easy to lift off and give any room a quick going over. The battery life is more than enough to go round the whole house and the dyson collect more hair and dirt than my old hoover.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • The best thing I have EVER brought!!! 🙂
  • Powerful cleaner but hard to handle
  • I don’t like it, I LOVE IT !!!!!!!

I bought this hoover because i was fed up of getting out my big dyson. I felt like i needed to do the whole house once i’d got it out because it was so big and bulky. The animal is perfect for me. I have mainly wooden floors and i grab it off the wall when i’ve swept up or just to go around the edges. I have carpet in my bedroom and up the stairs and although it isn’t quite as effective on carpet as my big dyson it’s so much more convenient and still does a good job. Overall i would recommend this product for someone who whats a quick easy hoover round. I would think it would be more suitable for mainly wooden floors though.

This is a must for tiled floors. We bought it specifically for the kitchen and bathroom floors, for which it is great, so easy. It is also good for getting the cat hairs off the upholstery, though not as thorough as the regular vacuum. Reading other reviews, we thought that the short battery life might be an issue, but it hasn’t been. A great little vac for when you don’t need to get the big one out.

    Living in a large victorian house with six four-legged pets this vacuum has proved its worth, apart from the length of battery time before it stops working altogether. After buying the vacuum dyson replaced the battery for free, the original battery had lasted 18 months. The free replacement battery lasted 9 months. I bought another dyson battery (costing £38) which lasted 2 years. Today (two years later) i bought another battery costing £60. I am now asking myself a very pertinent question. Is the easy of use of this machine worth paying an addition £30 a year for?. Perhaps i should go back to using our cumbersome dyson pod vacuum, regardless of the hassle when vacuuming the stairs?.

    I love my new dyson, so much easier to use than my old one, not so cumbersome. I live in a bungalow and can get round in about 20 minutes, it is wonderful.

      Down in order to operate the vacuum is a poor design. The button that has to be held down in order to operate the vacuum is a poor design. Otherwise, the quality you will expect from dyson.

      I bought a cheaper version which is nowhere near as good as the dc35.

    This was one of my best purchases on amazon ever. It’s powerful, its small and fits perfectly in a cupboard when not in use. I was worried about the battery life but i have no problem when cleaning a one bed room flat (no carpets). Besides, you could invest on an additional battery if you need to.

        State of art at time and very useful to run around. Expensive but it knows what it’s doing. Battery is a half useless 7 minutes as is usual with all dyson handhelds but improving.

    Loads of connectors and is very light. Super useful when you have a pet. Couldn’t live without it anymore.
