    Default Dyson stick vac

    I love vacuuming. Love it. Unfortunately I've hurt my pelvis and can't vacuum indefinitely 😔 I'm thinking of getting a dyson stick vac (the dc45 model about $400) as I'm hoping I can manage that and fulfill my vacuuming needs lol. We only have tiled floors in the whole house (I can't sweep as it hurts too much).
    Does anyone have one of these and are they worth the huge price tag??

    I have the dc44 and it's awesome! You won't look back. The only annoying thing at the start was that you had to hold down the trigger for it to work but I'm used to it now

    I have a dc44 too. So worth it! I never use a broom or my big vacuum anymore. You'll love it.

    I have one - totally worth it!

    I can easily do my whole house on one charge (I have wooden floors and a tiled bathroom). I then remove the stick and add a little brush end to the barrel and use it to do my dusting. You can use the same technique for vacuuming the car. I also put the little brush end on the bottom of the stick and use it to vacuum up cobwebs which are usually hard to reach.

    It's powerful and versatile, you'll love it

    Another fan here. I have a bagless dyson vacuum and almost never use it since I bought the stick.

    I have one and the only complaint I have is that hair gets wrapped around the head/brushes and the only way to get it out is to manually untangle it. Can be a PITA if it's a lot. So I don't use it on carpets. It's great on the kitchen tiles instead of sweeping after the kids have been eating.

    We have the V6 as its more powerful than the DC44/45. We would have opted for that but because we have carpet and stubborn pet hair we needed more strength. It's a godsend to vacuum while pregnant and we haven't pulled out our barrel Dyson since the stick came into the family. We got our V6 on sale for $400, normally $500 something.

    I hate vacuuming but love mine. It sits in the panty and I use it to quickly vacuum dirty hot spots each day. It prevents the mess being walked through the rest of the house. If you have a smallish house or don't need to vacuum the whole house at once then you wouldn't need a normal vacuum. The battery life is about 15-20 mins.

    It is by far the best household item I have ever brought. Well a close second to the Nespresso machine anyway!
