This is amazing and really does the job. The only reason it hasnt got 5 stars is it is quite heavy, but no more so than the previous models.
The big difference from the 'Ball' models, is the flex is much longer..... a good two and a half metres longer, which is the difference between managing to clean the stairs in one go from the bottom, and having to balance the machine half way up, to do it in 2 goes. There is nothing labour-saving in having to plug and unplug a flex all the time, so until Dyson make the 'Ball' models with longer flexes, I am a traditional Dyson fan!
Love the colourway of this model.... grey, with splashes of red, and yellow. Very cheery!Dyson DC25 Animal Lightweight Dyson Ball Upright Vacuum Cleaner for Pet Owners
