The animal handheld removes pet hair well from furniture and stairrunner. Very powerful, easy to hold. Attachments click on easily, empties with a touch of a button- just hold over garbage can. The only downside is that it doesn't last longer than 6-10 minutes on a charge depending on which power setting you use. Also, I would like the option to use a power cord for operation.

Very disappointed in life of battery per use - 10 minutes is not enough time for me to clean under bird cages and around litter boxes - very inconvenient waiting between charges - item is way over priced for what amount of time allowed between battery charges - I am returning it tomorrow and looking at another brand for longer vacuum time whether cordless or with a cord - Dyson needs to improve this item even if it has to allow more vacuum time with a extension cord attached while using it - I love my DC18 upright, but this product is just not worth the money

Very nice Machine

Comments about Dyson Handheld Vacuum:

I haven't used it a lot yet but so far it has exceeded all expectations. Cleans up hair from our Golden Retriever with Ease, Cleans the dust out of my Computerand will clean all the floors and trunks on my Vehicles. Nice Job Dyson. Suction is very good even on the lower setting, Battery chyarges fast, handy to use, Easy to clean, probably I will buy a extra filter to have on hand but otherwise nothing else needed now.

      Comments about Dyson Handheld Vacuum:

      I use my Dyson handheld vac every day. Just a wonderful product that really works and picks up pet hair with ease. I have owed the upright Dyson Animal vacuum for about 2 years and after that I was sold and just had to have the handheld.
      I have already recommended this vacuum to several of my friends, plus I ordered two of them, one for myself and one to give as a Christmas gift.

      Best Hand Held vac ever

      By 

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Dyson Handheld Vacuum:

      I believe I have owned every hand held Vacuum available and this is the tops! I own a Dyson upright and a Dyson Animal canister. This one is so handy, I use it for the occasional pick up instead of pulling out my big vac. It is the best for cleaning out the car and the car trunk. I only wish the battery held a longer charge.

          Not a good battery.

          By 

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Dyson Handheld Vacuum:

          I'm conflicted. The suction isn't as good as I thought it would be, especially for the price, but it does work well for what I want to use it for. The battery is what I am not happy with. It's not that it only lasts about 10 minutes. I read all about it and I understood the length of battery life when I ordered it. It's the battery went bad only a 6 weeks after I bought my handheld and I had to buy a new battery. It was very upsetting that it my handheld worked fine one day and 2 days later nothing. I do want to mention that I am very happy with my Dyson upright vacuum.

            Bought it primarily for use on carpeted stairs and for inside of our cars. It works great for those uses.
