The Dyson DC24 Animal vacuum is an upright model, currently selling for around $450. This model is designed to be super powerful, yet very lightweight. In this review of the Dyson DC24 Animal vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over the positive and negative aspects, then decide if it’s worth spending the extra money on this machine. To make it less heavy, they made this unit a little smaller and kept the design very simple. Here’s a rundown of features you’ll find on this model: ball technology for quick turns, washable lifetime HEPA filter, mini turbine head, an easy empty dirt container, motorized brush roll with on and off switch, certified asthma and allergy friendly, a 20 ft power cord, fingertip controls, and it has a 5 year warranty on parts and labor. Oh, and this vacuum weighs just 11.6 lbs – which is substantially lighter than the original model.
OK, onto the negative aspects of the Dyson DC24 Animal vacuum. First off, the 20 ft power cord is entirely too short. I would have at least liked to have 25 ft, but preferably even 30. Also, the 11 inch cleaning path is pretty narrow – meaning it will take a longer time cleaning large spaces. Another thing is that the hose is pretty short – so it can be hard to reach tall places. Lastly, the Dyson DC24 Animal vacuum cleaner has some trouble with bigger items. Although, you probably wouldn’t want to risk ruining the motor by sucking up something big anyway. All in all, I am a big fan of this new model. I’m giving it a 4.3 / 5 star rating, even though the price is a little more than I would normally spend.
