Summary: This vacuum is fantastic! I thought my 3 year old Wertheim was pretty good until I used the DC23 for the first time.......WOW, what a beast! We were amazed at the amount of dirt it picked up from our already visably clean floors (I had vacuumed the day before). The carpet pile stands up better now because of the motorhead and two people have asked me if we've had the carpets steam cleaned.
Summary: I already own a dyson dc 25 upright. I will keep that one upstairs. My whole upstairs except bathroom is carpeted. Downstairs is wood floors and tile. So I decided to get this refurb dyson dc 23. Having a cannister is a whole new experience. So easy to vacuum. I have to say with the upright dyson there is so much clicking out and extending the wand then trying to pull that around to go under beds , dressers, sofas, chairs, and dusting cobwebs. Just a lot of work.
Summary: I am really disappointed in this machine. Heavy to pull around and the angle on the basic head does not allow it to sit flush on the floor unless your arm is down low. Very awkward. As a woman that uses a vacuum cleaner every day I cannot appreciate the heaviness of this and the awkward pull out tubing. One cannot attach a nozzle directly to the end of the hose to get into the tracks of the windows and give me my old 8 year old Dyson any day.
Summary: I know everyone who leaves a review will either be 100% positive, which can be sickening, or completely negative. However, I have to say that the DC23 Motorhead machine is the best machine we've ever had in our home. I might say we've tried a few of both supermarket brands, and the more expensive brands and makes too.
Excerpt: i have two cats and a Golden Retriever dog who sheds daily. I am shocked at the sand and hair I picked up with my new Dyson in just one day. My area rugs are fairly new and I vacuum every day. So my old vacuum (not a Dyson) was leaving lots behind. I love the stair feature because I have 3 sets of staircases. So far I am very impressed.
I thought that the ball feature might make maneuvering a little difficult but not at all. It's pretty easy.

Summary: I have used my ducted system for the past 10 years and thought it was doing an OK job. After owning a dog & cat for a few years I was getting frustrated with the pet hair and decided to listen to my friends who had dysons and buy the one with the motorised head. MY GOODNESS!! it is amazing and my carpet looks like it has been steam cleaned after every use!
Excerpt: The Dyson DC23 Animal is easy to use on stairs and does a superior job lifting pet hair from carpets. It also has a larger dirt cup that let's you get the job done without numerous stops to empty the cup. I no longer dread tackling the stairs because the canister design rests on each step as you work the stairs and rolls up rather than fighting you each step of the way.
