    Not liking these anti dyson comments. My $1600 vacuum that I was told should last 20 odd years is just about stuffed after 2 years. Everyone raves about how good dysons are...was going to start looking into getting one....but maybe I shouldn't?

    I love my dyson but hubby always empties it.

    Perhaps you can try wetting a few pieces of paper towel and wiping all the crap out rather than shaking it?

    This is why I have never had a Dyson. I love my bagged Miele, just chuck the bag and you're done. And it definitely lasts a lot longer between needing to change bags.

    What I go weeks without emptying mine and it's not even full when I do

    And there's no need to use a plastic bag to empty it just put it in the bin

    I empty mine about once a month! It seems to hold heaps. Are you sure it's actually full?

    I love my Dyson, best household purchase ever. My carpets looked brand new after the first vacuum, I was a bit grossed out by how nasty they must have been!

    What type of Dyson do you have? I have the upright one.

    Maybe each model is different. I have the newest DC54 model and the red 'maximum' line is only about a quarter of the whole barrel. Says u cant fill it above the line. The red line is only about 4-5cm from the base of the barrel so only 4-5cm of room to fill before it needs to be emptied...

    I've never liked my dyson, but I just empty it into the bin inside, no drama with dust flying everywhere:

    I just empty it over the bin. Give it a little tap for anything stuck. I love my Dyson so much that I now have two (one upstairs and one downstairs) plus a hand held one for quick cleanups. I love vacuuming lol.

    It must depend on WHICH Dyson you have - mine doesn't do this.

    I just take it outside, push the button, and let all the crap fall into the wheelie bin. It doesn't blow anywhere. If it gets a bit stuck in there (because I'm lazy about emptying it and don't do it every time I vacuum), I shake it... and it's fine.

    I have the DC39 Animal.
