We've had an older Dyson DC14 Animal vacuum for the past couple of years, but I recently got the chance to try out a new Dyson DC25 vacuum. It was great! It was so much lighter than the Dyson Animal – without any loss of suction.
The Dyson DC25 vacuum is only 16 pounds, and it has The Ball technology exclusive to Dyson, so it offers unprecented cleaning reach. I thoroughly vacuumed every inch of the carpet without having to move furniture or even strain my wrist. The ball allows the vacuum to tilt and twist like some sort of enlightened yogi vac. It even cleans that little crevice right next to the wall – amazing edge cleaning. The Dyson DC25 vacuum almost makes vacuuming fun.
