This is a special model intended for those households which have pets. Its great design and engineering removes pet hair from furniture, carpets and upholstery. Dyson DC17 uses an advanced level 3 root cyclone technology which is a step up than the simple root technology. This single model of Dyson outclasses all other models in suction power and pick up.
It is highly effective on all floor types and carpets. The brush bar is motorized for your convenience to choose when to turn on or off. If you are cleaning delicate carpets or rugs, then the brush bar may be turned off. Otherwise for cleaning pet hair and dirt of from normal carpets and floorings, the brush bar may be turned on.
Also, the vacuum cleaner is equipped with a reversible wand that reaches to lengths of 16 feet by a touch of a button. This makes it very handy to clean stairs and larger rooms without moving too much.
It comes with an additional accessory for low lying furniture. There has been a lot of thought given to the design and making of the Dyson DC17 vacuum cleaner. The clear bin is also larger than other similar models. The bin is 5/8th of a gallon. It is very simple to empty the contents of the bin. You just have to remove the bin from the vacuum, place it above a trash bin and then press a single button; the contents will empty automatically themselves without the need of hands. The clear bin does not need any bags, so it is easily noticeable when the bin needs to be emptied.
The air expelled after vacuuming is more purified and fresh. According to statistics, the air after vacuuming is 150 times fresher and there are lesser molds and bacteria. This has all been accomplished by the help of the single HEPA filter that traps microscopic particles and allergens as well. This filter is easily washable and has a lifetime warranty. All the other parts and services of the vacuum come with a 5 year warranty.
The design includes that all the tools are at arm’s length and on board. The carpet kit enables old carpets get a new like feel. It fluffs up the carpets. There are additional sprays and powders to help remove stains and absorb dirt.
The price is a lot more as compared to other brands and models but the power of suction is incomparable. Also, along with the great suction power, the vacuum is a bit noisy in comparison to Dyson DC33. It is also at times hard to push around heavy carpets as it tends to stick to the carpet because of its power.
But I feel that these flaws are just till the time you great used to this great machine. Overall this vacuum sucks up nearly everything in its path, and keeps you clean environment friendly. The latest motorized brush bar and the cleaning head are the highlights of this great design. It is a treat for all pet owners.
