sometimes bad things happen for the better...
« on: January 11, 2007, 07:32:42 PM »

So we got this bitchin  vacuum last november (2005) (shark thunderbolt), it worked great.  too great really.  always had a full bin doing just one room.  annoying as hell having to dump it, resume, and clean the filters sooo often.   no big deal though, meant the carpets were clean.
the other drawback... the agitator was always full of  sal's hair.  it didnt get through to the canister at all.   and it was a pain in the arse (6 screws, plus removing the drive belt) to remove.

well, today, it had no suction at all.   went to BBB to find out what their policy on the warranty was. cleaned everything, checked the belts, motor warm but not really stinky.  who knows whats wrong with it.

inquired if there was anything better in terms of cleaning the agitator brush.  pointed out to the DC15.

WOW.  same level of cleaning power, and insanely easy to clean/maintain.  taking the old busted one back tomorrow for a refund  tomorrow.

Very nice.  We've talked about getting one.

So, believe the hype?

so far.  it doesn't really 'suck' more than the shark thunderbolt (beast!)  but it sucks as much, about 1/2 the hair makes it into the canister, and overall, it's engineered* far better in terms of ease of cleaning/maintaining.  add in the neat 'ball' and the 5 year warranty...       wish i'd got it to begin with


especially if you get one for 20%+ off retail.

Laura really, really wants a Dyson. Apparently they even have a model designed specifically for pet owners. We have a Kirby right now and it is incredibly average. I'm really glad we didn't pay full price for it.

from what i learned today, they come in

ball/ no ball
animal / plain

the animal model has a separate 'motorized' brush for sofas and stuff to get pet hair specifically  that the plain model doesnt.

you can buy it aftermarket too (for $70)  whereas the 'animal' model is only $50 more as a unit.

if that brush does as good a job as the unit overall does... then i'd say its worth it.

Yep, they are color coded.  Purple is the animal one.
