This review is from: Dyson DC39 Multi Floor Full Size Dyson Ball Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner (Kitchen & Home)
This vac. cleans my fitted carpets better than any vac I have ever owned. I am 85 and so have owned many !!. BUT:-I dislike the fact that that the only way to reduce suction is by holding down a "lever". This hurts my arthritic hands. A real problem that I think the makers should solve ASAP. I also hate cleaning the vac. It was easier, and cleaner, to simply remove a bag and put in a new one. Now I go outside with a carrier bag.I try to hold the vac in the bag while removing part A. I then have to shake and tap to remove dirt . I then fiddle about to remove part B and clean that. Meanwhile very fine dust finds its way all over my hands. All this has to be done on a non - windy day !!!!!
I have a very soft brush meant for pasting wall paper. I use this to gently remove dust that clings to the dirt canister. I find this invaluable. Still very messy though.
So - This Dyson is a splendid cleaner but it has serious "Care" problems.
