Product Details

Dyson DC47 Animal Canister Vacuum Cleaner, Model DC47ANIMAL

Want the ultimate clean in a super-small, powerful package? Check out the Dyson DC47 Animal Canister Vacuum Cleaner. The DC47 the carbon fiber tool offers nylon bristles and brushes that are perfect for carpet cleaning. They cut down on static clean, while working to get deep within the carpet fibers.

The best thing about the Dyson DC47 Animal Canister Vacuum Cleaner, is that it is exceptionally portable. It is light-weight and has excellent maneuverability, helping you get around your home and tight corners. The tangle-free turbine tool gives you the freedom to reach into crevices, high-reaching curtains and more, without worrying about tangles or lose suction. Emptying the dirt is a breeze as well. Just press the button, and eliminate all the dust, danger, pet hair and more. The Dyson DV47 Animal Canister Vacuum is perfect for your home and cleaning a variety of areas and furniture. Never lose suction, and be confidant in the quality and design of the Dyson vacuum cleaner.

Features:

  • 2 Tier Radial™ cyclones
    The DC47 canister vacuum has our latest 2 Tier Radial™ cyclones. 32 cyclones working in parallel, across two tiers, generate high centrifugal forces to capture more microscopic dust from your home
  • Ball™ technology
    Conventional cylinder vacuums with fixed wheels or castors can be awkward – heavy to pull, head the wrong way and collide with obstacles. With the latest Ball™ technology, DC47 turns on the spot. It has a central steering mechanism for more accurate steering. The pivot point is located near the center of the machine, enabling it to make tighter turning circles and more easily follow the user’s path. The ball also houses many of the main vacuum components, including the motor, polycarbonate air ducts and a 16.4 ft power cord. This lowers the center of gravity, making the machine easy to control
  • Carbon fiber floor tool
    The brush bars of most vacuums only have nylon bristles to clean different surfaces. These are not as effective on hard floors, where fine dust can be left behind. The Dyson Carbon fiber floor tool has both nylon bristles and brushes made from pure carbon fiber – selected for its anti-static properties. The carbon fiber brushes reduce static build-up on hard floors to remove fine dust, and the stiff nylon bristles remove ground-in dirt from carpets
  • Compact and light to pull
    The ball has a smooth surface with low friction bearings, so DC47 is light to pull across different floor surfaces. It’s also light to carry, with a bodyweight of approximately 13.8 lbs
  • Tangle-free Turbine tool
    The Dyson Tangle-free Turbine tool is the only turbine tool that doesn’t tangle. There’s no brush bar for hair to wrap around. It uses counter-rotating heads with brushes to remove hair and dirt from carpets and upholstery and releases it straight into the bin. The flexible heads and articulating base plate ensure that the brushes maintain constant contact with a surface – no matter how uneven. The heads are positioned so the brushes reach to the front and side of the tool, drawing in hair and dirt from all directions
  • Hygienic and quick to empty
    Emptying the bin on a Dyson vacuum is quick and hygienic. Just press the button to release the dirt. The bin is clear, so you can see when it needs emptying – and how much dust, dirt and pet hair the machine has captured. Dyson vacuums were the first to have clear bins – despite market researchers insisting it was a bad idea. Now clear bins are everywhere (though not all are made from the same ABS polycarbonate as riot shields, like Dyson bins)

Our Family: -2 Adults, 1 Child & 2 Boston Terriers Our Home: -1008sq ft [1st floor, not counting partially finished full basement] -Built around 1970 -80% Original Hardwood [About 10% of that has a rug(s) on it] -10% Linoleum -10% Tile First Dyson product. This little, powerful, canister is exactly what we wanted. I thoroughly researched what it can do/was built to do...after receiving it, it does exactly what Dyson says. Purchased Multi Angle Brush as well as Asthma & Allergy Kit in addition to DC47 Animal. Pro's: -Small, maneuverable, powerful, average noise for a vacuum, range of abilities with the accessories & ease of use. +Great feature: Pressure release, you will love this if/when the head snags on a rug or surprise object. Con's: -Only able to attach 2 extra tools to vacuum wand. [Flexi crevice tool & Soft Dusting Brush replaced what came in the box with the DC47] I acknowledge the price difference between Dyson & typical vacuums, however, I firmly believe you cannot find this level of quality/ability/polish for a lesser price. I want to point out that using a canister is FAR different than using a standard vacuum. Once I got accustom to it I don't think I'll purchase an upright again. Upon receiving this I vacuumed the entire house, which was done with our old vacuum the day prior. Usual story, the new Dyson found GOBS of dirt in our home. I generally clean one or two rooms a day, not typically doing a whole home cleaning in a single swoop. That fact allows the cord length & bin size to work well for me. The bin is easy to dump & easy to tell when dumping is needed. Sure it is smallish, but your home should never be dirty enough to have the bin size of the DC47 become an issue. All things connect logically & work well. I especially like the carbon head as I feel it cleans our hard surfaces well & far easier than using a broom. The Tangle-free Turbine tool truly is a marvel, works great on pet hair as well as human stragglers, I use this on our throw blankets & couch pillows. I highly recommend this vacuum if our family & home are similar to yours, best vacuum we have EVER owned. I also make these recommendations to Dyson on future models: -either increase the # of accessories that can be attached to the wand or place the 2 connectors on opposite sides of the wand. This would allow 2 of the wide accessories to be housed on the wand without interfering with another. Bottom Line: It works, it's easy & it makes sense. You cannot go wrong with this model, provided you do not have a massive home & plan to vacuum it all at once.

After having this vacuum for one month, the beater brush now turns itself off randomly while cleaning my carpet. I pry the button into the "on" position (which isn't user friendly at all, no other vacuum I've ever used required me to use my nails to pry a button out), and the beater bar turns off almost immediately after being placed on the carpet again. I've also got pets, and thus, a lot of pet hair in my dirt cup. With my old vacuum, I could just press a button and everything would fall out. With my Dyson DC47, only the dust comes out - the hair remains stuck between the cyclonic thingie and the side of the cup, meaning I have to touch my vacuumed dirt and hair every single time I empty the vacuum.

Comments about Dyson DC47 Animal Canister Vacuum Cleaner:

I just got this as a wedding gift and I LOVE it!!! It is so easy to change the attachments which makes cleaning quick and easy. I have all wood floors and a couple area rugs. It is hard to find a vacuum that works on wood and has good suction, the suction on it is fabulous. I used it to clean my husband's car and the suction was as good as the one at the car wash. I couldn't be happier with it!!!

Comments about Dyson DC47 Animal Canister Vacuum Cleaner:

The only vacuum I will ever own again! I have a dog and two cats so I vacuum pretty much everyday to every other day. I am amazed and disgusted all at the same time of the amount of dirt and hair that I empty out after each use. This thing is amazing I'm very happy and would highly recommend to anyone!!!

Comments about Dyson DC47 Animal Canister Vacuum Cleaner:

My previous brand vacuum cleaner weighted 26 lbs!! What a pleasure it is to use my 11 lb Dyson. I have a long haired cat and it works great on the animal hair. I just wish I could purchase a larger head for the carpets. It is a shame your parts aren't interchangeable. I would purchase the larger one. All in all, a great machine.

good "but"

Comments about Dyson DC47 Animal Canister Vacuum Cleaner:

My whole house is hard surface flooring. I have engineered hardwood and ceramic tile. I have three dogs. I vacuum every day. When I first got my vacuum it did not include the floor attachment. I didn't think I'd need it because they SAY it would work on all surfaces. I found out that is NOT true. The all purpose attachment that came with it sucked much too hard to the hardwood to do anything more than scrape it. So I had to rig up a way to use a dust mop and the hose. After three years of that laborious job, I complained to Dyson and they sent me the floor attachment. It works very well. Now I can vacuum like any other human being and it gets up the dog hair quite nicely. That attachment SHOULD be sold with the vacuum. OR don't advertise that it works well on all surfaces.

    The Perfect Fit

    By

    Comments about Dyson DC47 Animal Canister Vacuum Cleaner:

    It is with great pleasure I write this review. I have tried both the standing canisters and cordless vacuum. Both probably a good choice but not if you have furniture and if you have a 3 bedroom house to clean, that is actually occupied :) In other words, the cordless vacuum would only clean for about 8-10 minutes at the time and then needed to be re-charged for about a day.... Not a good fit for a busy mom on the go that has no time to clean in sequences ... :) The "upright standing canister" is a powerful machine, but if you have furniture, which most of the inhabited homes do - you are up to no good. The ball is so high you can go under almost anything in the house. It is probably the ideal fit if you are cleaning big open office spaces. It is a bit heavy as well. After much going back and forth between few stores we have found the canister option and even though by that time I was all very sceptical about Dyson we have purchased it and .... WOW. Lightweight, comfortable, extremely mobile. The low ball allows you to clean under anything and around everything. The canister is easy to clean and the machine is self is so light you can lift it and carry it around if you need to reach places. I vacuum and dust with it. I clean upholstery with it and the BEST - I can clean all the legos in the house without sucking any of them in with the flat service accessory .... Dyson has proven to me - it's worth spending the money! P.S. Side effects of using this machine - My husband has never been so interested in cleaning ANYTHING! :) I don't know is it the gadget appeal or the versatile use of this Dyson - but he loves to use it .... Yeyyy me !

    Comments about Dyson DC47 Animal Canister Vacuum Cleaner:

    the very FIRST time I used this machine a hair apparently caught in the head and it stopped turning (suction continued) - every attempt was tried to fix it and all options to release it were unsuccessful and Dyson had to send me an entirely new head - I don't even have long hair! now I'm terrified to even use it because I'm afraid there will be another hair that gets stuck! Dyson people were wonderful and generous in their walking me through all the steps to release it which didn't work, but I'm still vacuum shy.... and by the way - how many nickames do you know that have 3 letters? maybe almost ALL OF THEM
