    Default Stick vacuum recommendations

    Can anyone recommend a decent handheld stick vacuum? I need one for day to day cleaning after my 3 year old and my dog which sheds horribly. I've heard the dyson sticks are good but I'm not sure if I want to spent that much. But I don't want a cheap one which won't get all the dog hairs either. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I know new models came out recently and the older models have had a decent price drop. Have you looked at the older model - which is what I have.
    Great thanks heaps. Do you happen to know off hand which one you have? I looked online and there are quite a few dyson sticks out now.

    I have a Dyson V6 animal. It is good, and so handy. We tried to find one of the old models, so it would be a bit cheaper, but couldn't get one. We just waited until it came on sale.

    I have the Dyson stick animal ... I'm not a fan. It's not that great ... I'd prefer my normal Dyson with a cord any day.

    I have a dyson dc45.
    Tbh I don't rate it much.
    Between a messy toddler and two cats it's not as good as I was hoping. Quick clean ups, yes. Decent clean, no.

    How does it go with pet hair? I've got a roomba that I use in large areas every day or so but I was considering a stick for spot cleaning or after dinner around the table etc..

    I have the DC59 animal and with two kids, a husband and a cat it is awesome. Our proper dyson broke and I only had that to use and it did a great job, absolutely love it. Don't buy the electrolux one, I had that prior to the dyson - it was rubbish and the battery wouldn't hold charge after maybe 8 months.

    I have Dyson and its horrible I'm forever pulling it apart to get crap out of it (fluff) or hair we have floating floors tiles and carpet in bedrooms plus one dog. I use my old nilfisk twice a week still for a good vacuum as this isn't as good.

    I have a roomba which we use daily but I don't find it does specific areas very well. It's great to do a whole room but I was thinking of a stick for spot cleaning areas. (I've Also got a big dyson which I use every now and then. I'm a bit funny when it comes to my floors, I can't stand dirty floors)
