    Default Vacume cleaners

    Hi everyone

    Our Aldi vacume died So we need a new one.
    We're considering shelling out for a dyson (Allergy ball vac) but i want some insight first.

    What vac do you have? How much was it and how old is it?
    Do you own a dyson, what model?

    Its a lot of money to consider..

    We have a Dyson. Well worth the cash - they are amazing. We have the purple handheld one with the dog hair powered attachment. It is awesome and easy to empty at the touch of a button. Considering how much you use avac, and how long they last, get a good one. Crap ones are just that...crap.

    My MIL has a full sized Dyson and it's also fab. You can buy them now on some discount websites. I got mine at Harris Scarfe during a 30pc off sale 3years ago for 200. It is as good now as the day I bought it. It is an investment in the life of your back and your carpet, too.

    We have the DC39 multifloor. Didn't worry about the allergy or pet attachments.
    Got it for 549 at Harvey Norman, make sure you negotiate as they do have room to move!

    Love it!

    We had a Dyson and have just replaced it with the Electrolux Activeclean ... I like that you can increase or decrease the suction so that you can vac blinds and curtains etc ... Same cleaning concept, diferent brand. They're about the same price, so might be worth having a look at.

    I have a Sauber. Cost $1600 and is far from spectacular.
    I would go with a dyson

    I have a Dyson DC23.

    I think we paid $649 for it at David Jones (on sale).

    I love it. It's quite loud but does an amazing job.

    I bought a Dyson not long ago. It is wonderful! It has a motorised head on it, cost about $850. Well worth the money!
    My parents have one as well and when it was about 3 years old mum managed to break a part. Dyson sent her a replacement at no charge even though it was mums fault. So great customer service!
    The day I bought mine I vacuumed with the old vac we had then went over it again with the Dyson and couldn't believe the crap that it managed to pull out of the carpet.

    I have a dyson, I love it! Not sure on the model, but it has the multi floor head.

    We didn't go the pet version as we only had a short haired dog at the time, not we have a husky and it does struggle a bit to get all his hair.

    I have the dyson allergy one and it is fantastic! Even when the floor looks clean it manages to get stuff out of the carpet that can't be seen! It's so easy to use and just glides along the floor! I got mine from Harvey Norman and they let me test a few first so maybe go and try a few and see how they feel! It's a lot of money but after having a lot of crappy vacuums it's well worth it!!

    I got the Dyson DC39 multi floor, it cost around $600 it was the best money ever spent. It sucks up everything from the carpets and it never tips over ( I had big problems with other vacuums doing that)
