More Product Features

BAF Approval Lifetime HEPA filter
The Dyson DC17 Asthma & Allergy (DC17AA) vacuum has a HEPA filter which lasts for a lifetime. No expensive filters to replace, just clean air and more clean air! Additionally, this vacuum cleaner is approved for allergy sufferers by the British Allergy Foundation. 
Unique Clear Bin
Unique Clear Bin
The innovative design of the Dyson's clear bin is great because you always know just how well your Dyson is working! One quick glance and you can tell when it's full, and it is easy to empty.  Completely hassle-free, especially since there are no bags to buy, ever.
Dyson Brush High Velocity Air Intake
Intake nozzles on the DC17 tools direct high velocity airflow down into the carpet pile.  This means that you pick up more dust, dirt, and debris. The directional force of the air agitates and dislodges all the nasty stuff hiding in your carpet. And the airflow is continuous, even when vacuuming curtains or upholstery, so they don't get stuck to the cleaner.

This product is amazing! I first vacuumed with my old vacuum and then with the dyson dc 17 asthma & allergy, I couldnt believe how much dust and pet dander was left behind! I've wanted a dyson for years and my husband finally broke down and got me one. Its worth every penny.Its a little heavy but it kind of steers its self when turned on. The world needs a dyson lol.

Customer Q & A

Q1: Why was this vacuum discontinued?
A: No clue. What I do know is Dyson typically retires vacuums quickly, compared to some manufacturers. Their entire business model, like others, is based on continually coming up with new models even if there are no new features, every 12-18 months.

Q2: We have a lot of hardwood floors and I want to know if the DC17 is safe for wood floors or will it cause damage?

A: This vac is hard to find since it's been discontinued, but if you found somewhere to purchase, no, it should not damage your floors. The brushroll can be turned off, so like many uprights, you turn the brushroll off and you're set to use it on smooth flooring.
