Wow, Vacuum!!!!

Update to Suicidal Vaccum (ancient!)

Old, nasty vacuum is outside retired

Wonderful, New Dyson DC-07 is inside as of Thursday

We live in a very small place right now with two kitties. I had to empty it twice! My goodness, the filth that is in your carpet (or maybe just mine ) I took a pic of the gross stuff it sucked up (mostly fur and dust looks like) but you can use your imagination.

It is wonderful Found it on for only 150$ refurbished. And, so easy to put together! No screws or any such stuff.

So glad that you like the Dyson!

When you have a good vacuum that actually picks stuff up, it makes cleaning so much easier!

Wow, what a great deal! I would love to have a Dyson! My current vacuum sucks (pun intended, because it DOESN'T) and I hate it. I feel like it barely gets anything clean.

Maybe I can shop around and find something good too! Congrats on your new vacuum!

Haha! This is SOOOO true.

Hubby and I bought a Dyson Animal with our wedding gift certs.

HOLY COW! Where did the hair come from!!!!! I even posted a thread here about my expirience lol. I will have to dig it up and link you all to it. It was a pretty funny thread.

Still, on a weekly basis, we have to empty the thing way more than you think you should by looking at the room pre-vacuum. Ugh!!

Honestly, I think the Dyson has a hair making mechanism in it somewhere just so you THINK you have that much hair and NEED the Dyson. It's all a marketing ploy, but I am sold. LOL

I know they can be super expensive, but they are worth EVERY penny. To the Orek owner? That is what I have had for years. Yes my Dyson weighs SOOO much more than the Orek, but I don't care anymore! LOL

I thought the Orek was doing it's job. It wasn't. My mom is a die hard Orek fan too, I drug the dyson over to her house when we moved to Houston, and vacuumed right behind her Orek. She was disgusted.

They do have lightweight Dysons. Its a thought?

Yes, and a good tip: dont vacuum with a Dyson for the first time with friends over. Will all the dirt that will come up they will think you are a pig-style-slob!

They do make light weight Dyson's, however I dont think mine is really that bad. If you are used to a lighter one it might take some adjusting to, but the hose can reach all the way up a staircase!!! You wont be carrying around much.

My grams is a Oreck lover too, maybe I will bring it over and disgust her

That's why we opted for no carpeting in our new home.
On the other hand, carpeting hides all those cat hairs that are so visible on hardwood floors!
