Great replacement for my well used DC 08 Animal,
This review is from: Dyson DC32 Animal Full-size Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner Engineered for Removing Pet Hair (Kitchen & Home)
My new Dyson DC 32 Animal arrived today from Amazon. I bought this hoover as a direct replacement for my 6 year old Dyson DC 08 Animal. Although still working ok i did want a more up to date version. I was impressed with the new model, and it seems as though Dyson have resolved many of the small niggly issues that existed with older models. As an example with the new one you can now remove the wand handle and attach the smaller attachments direct to the end of the hose which is much easier. I was also impressed with the fact that you can easily take apart both the mini turbo and turbo brush heads in order to remove clogging hair. This was always a pain in the backside with the older model requiring a sharp pair of scissors and a set of tweezers. Not so with the new model, the rotating brush can be easily taken out and stripped of hair before re insertion. One word of warning though, Dyson have now fitted the exhaust to the side of the hoover, which did result in a bit of an ash shower as i pulled the vaccum past last nights coal fire ( which was still full of ash! A mistake i won't make again!! On board storage for all smaller attachments is also excellent, and the hose does wrap around well. All in all a bargain, and far cheaper off Amazon than anywhere else (as usual).
