Powerful on multiple floor surfaces
Comments about Dyson DC23 Motorhead Canister Vacuum Cleaner:
I have had this vacuum for four years and LOVE it. I have three kids and use the vacuum almost daily. This model is great on all floor types. I use it on my carpet, wood and tile with the same results. Great suction and cleaning power. It is awesome on edges. After having used this for four years straight, I need to replace the head because the agitator no longer spins. However, I am happy with this fantastic investment. I use and abuse my vacuum and this model keeps up with me. In the event my vacuum finally gives out, I will purchase the same one because I've had such a good experience.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bought the animal upright in 2010 when I had carpet through the house, then we changed the floors to hardwood, so I bought this one and gave my daughter the upright, now I'm getting to old to pull the canister around more than twice a month, so am going to get the dyson V6 absolute. Thanks dyson!
Love my Canister
For years I looked for a machine that could tackle the tough job of cleaning my bird cages. Lots of different tools, (I bought some additional tools) for certain jobs, like cleaning feathers off of the barn board behind the cages with the stiff bristle brush. I bought this about 3 years ago, so I have been using it for quite some time. I keep the filter clean, and have had no problems with the machine. It picks up fine particles with ease. I empty the bin in the garage garbage, due to the fine particles that I don't want released back into the house. I also take the bin apart most of the time, to thoroughly clean it. The canister is great, due to it's large capacity. I also don't have to worry about it falling over, like an upright, when using the tools. I know that this machine is called an animal d=because of the additional attachments for people with pets, but I would call it an animal due to it's workhorse capabilities!
Great suction, easy to maneuver, clean exhaust, stows easily.
This vacuum cleaner is ...
This vacuum cleaner is amazing. I thought all cleaners were the same, but I was intrigued by the DC23 "animal" cleaner since I have a cat. After reading many online reviews, I was convinced that this was what I needed. And, it exceeded all my expectations. It's easy to use, it quickly changes from rug to tile floors, emptying the dirt container is effortless, and the rooms smell cleaner after vacuuming. Now, can Dyson make a steam cleaner?
Dyson is quality, and even sexy
Yep, this is my second Dyson, this one I got for my mother. My personal Dyson is a DC28. I have to say there is not much I get excited about, especially over an appliance for the home. But the Dyson makes me happy, it gives me a little hope for modern consumer devices, when most things seem to get worse and more disposable. The Dyson has real thought put in to it, it does its best to be a pleasure to use without compromise of performance. Unlike my DC28, the DC23 does take a bit more effort, such as being careful the hose doesn't twist or fold on itself, and frequent trips to empty out the small collector, however it is worth it to me, because it does such a fantastic job. I should mention the carpets at my mothers place are new and so shed a bit, I think in time it won't fill up so quick. Last thing is I wish Dyson would resume selling this Motorhead version, it is -very- nice to have the electric motor in the head, it makes this device capable of doing great in any situation. Thanks.
Canister DC23 Animal
Love, love, love this vacuum!!! Can't say enough about it! What a dream!! I just got it about a half hour ago. I took it out of the box and it was the most easiest product to put together, did not need any instructions at all, in a matter of seconds I was using it. It was quite for the power it has and very light, I have short shag carpet and it did wonders on it, we have a beagle that constantly sheds and we needed something to keep our carpet and flooring clean, because we have a special needs child who is constantly crawling and rolling around the floors. This Dyson was so easy to work with and it maneuvered around all the furniture and plants on the floor very easy to handle! I will never go back to anything else, we will most likely be purchasing the hand held Dyson in the future. BTW- I ordered the vacuum from dyson.com site and got it in just 3 days! Very happy all around! Hope to see a air purifier from Dyson as well
