I knew that having a pet was going to cause problems around the house but was not aware how much fur there would be. For years we struggled on with an ordinary Dyson but in the end gave up and got one that could deal with pet hair.

The first thing I was pleased about was how easy it was to put together and I managed to use it right away. It not only got rid of all the cat hair, but also seemed to pick up a lot more dirt than the other machine I had been using.

I also found it much easier to clean the furniture as the attachments were easy to connect and very powerful. The suction was powerful and it did a good job of getting rid of even more fur.

Stairs are not a problem at all as here again the attachment is easy to fit and really effective. Getting into the corners was not quite as easy but I suppose you can’t have everything. With a hose that is almost 15 meters long there is no need to run back to the main part of the hoover and move it every few minutes. The cord is 9 meters so wherever I clean there is no need to keep on unplugging and plugging in at the next socket.

Although I don’t have a laminated floor the instructions said that it was just as effective on them, so there is no need to worry about the fur that would be left behind there.

There is a 2.3 litres cylinder so it is possible to have a good hoover around quite a few times before it needs to be emptied. As it is clear it is easy to see how much is inside and so far I have not left it too long before emptying. When this eventually needs to be done it is just as easy as every other process with the machine as it is just a button release.

All in all I wish I had bought this earlier as there are a number of other features that are as good or better than other machines. Obviously without a bag there is an ongoing cost removed and although this is not an issue for me if there are allergy sufferers in the house then the filtration system is good news for them.

I really can’t fault the hoover from the point of view of performance, but this should be expected as it does come with a hefty price tag. The price I paid for it was higher than most Dysons but knowing that this also meant I was insured for 5 years against break downs meant I was confident about buying it.

I cant remember exactly how much I paid for it but I am sure it was under £300 although they are now selling for £329.99 on the official site. Other stores do have it on sale for up to £100 less however.

I have only given 4 stars as I still think it is a hefty price.

{ max-width:100%; } .rpd-left { float:left;
width:50%; padding-right:2.5%; } .rpd-right {
float:right; width:50%; } Dyson digital motor V6
At the heart of this masterfully miniature
cleaning machine is the Dyson digital motor V6.
Smaller, lighter and faster than conventional
electric motors, the V6 can spin up to 110,000
times per minute, which is more than three times
faster than its similarly sized competitors.
Combining digital pulse technology with a
four-pole neodymium magnet, the V6 is power-dense
and supplies 50% more power than the older V2
model. It's a motor that's perfect for use in a
handheld vacuum cleaner. So much power in such a
small package means the DC58 Animal doesn't carry
any unnecessary weight and is therefore easy to
wield over the full course of your cleaning
routine. Root CycloneTM Technology Because it's
handy enough to use more or less anywhere, the
DC58 Animal will run into all kinds of material in
need of vacuuming away. From the usual dust and
lint to crumbs and hair, the Root CycloneTM
Technology in this powerful handheld is more than
capable of tackling them all. Although Dyson are
well known for their bagless vacuum cleaners, they
are no longer the only bagless technology
manufacturers out there. That said, they are still
the best. Other bagless vacuums that haven't been
constructed in line with Dyson's patented cyclone
technology are often inefficient, which leads to
dust and grime clogging up the filter and reducing
the vacuum's effectiveness. The DC58 Animal uses
15 cyclones across two tiers, as well as the same
patented technology as the rest of the Dyson
range, to ensure that dust and dirt is spun out of
the air and into the bin via efficient centrifugal
forces. 20min Time Enhancing Trigger While
handheld vacuums are undoubtedly convenient, the
biggest drawback of conventional models is the
miniscule battery
