The Dyson DC43 Animal is part of the new ball family. The design is based on improving on the already successful ball vacuum. Now you can experience better filtration with the latest Radial Root Cyclone technology which has been remodeled for better suction power and it captures finer dust particles. The nozzle has also been redesigned to self-adjust better with a better seal on both carpet and hard floors. This makes a significant difference on how well it now picks up on hardwood and tile because there is far less air leakage. It does come with the Articulating Hard Floor tool which, in our opinion, works best on bare floor. The famous ball design makes it a dream to easily navigate around furniture which reduces the bumps and bruises on your furniture and baseboards. The now larger, easy empty, recovery bin can be dumped with just the push of a button so you don't have to touch the dirt every time you dump it.
What makes this an animal lovers vacuum is all of the bonus attachments that are included at no extra charge. First we have the Articulating Hard Floor tool which is the ideal tool for bare floors. Next we have the famous Dyson Groom tool for dog owners - this tool will remove pet hair with ease as long as your dog is comfortable being close to the vacuum. Then there is the Mini Turbine head for agitating carpet and upholstery in hard to get places such as the stairs, couches, mattresses, pet beds and just about anywhere you can't fit the nozzle of the vacuum. For dried stubborn dirt there is a Stiff Bristle Brush which easily scrubs out dried mud. For on the go cleaning you'll find a combination dusting brush and crevice tool along with an upholstery/stair tool that store right on the side of the vacuum.
Backed by the famous Dyson 5 year warranty you can be sure that this will be a dependable bagless vacuum that you'll be happy with for years to come.

I purchased this vacuum for my mother for Christmas this year. The vacuum was on sale at the time so I was able to afford it. It arrived very quickly. She loves it. It picked up so much more dirt than our old vacuum. It is easy to move and the hose is really long, making stairs easy. I noticed that it did not come with the new tangle free turbine head, which I thought it did. When I called to inquire about that, they said they would ship me one free. Also, the vacuum went on sale $50 cheaper after Christmas and it was still within 30 days of my purchase so they refunded me the difference. I have to say, I am very impressed with both the vacuum and the service I received from McHardy. When my Dyson eventually needs replacing, I will definitely buy the next vacuum from here.

I contacted McHardy's before Christmas Sales Week just to be sure that they'll really sell DC43 for such a great price. Well, to my surprise, couple days later I saw the augmentation of the price tag by 50$. Yes, that wasn't really a big deal, but I called them anyway to express my frustration. We still be just humans, we will always look for a childish excitement in purchasing process during Big Sale events :-) Well, what happened next - really made my day (if not to say a Year, so to speak). From the very first second in my conversation with a representative (Mrs. Rebecca) I felt an empathy and a genuine desire to help me to finally buy my Christmas toy (I do have two kids myself, but this was a Christmas treat for myself). Thanks to her GENUINE attitude to HELP me to feel good while buying something pretty important (yes, it's not a car, but we don't buy vacuums every month, let's say every year). I wasn't insisting on the initially announced price tag (just 50$ as a difference) but Mrs. Rebecca really touched my heart by (and it's important to understand) GENUINELY expressing the most important desire of that Company - which is to keep its clients nothing less than FULLY satisfied. They kept their word and they even sent me an additional item worth of 35$ as part of their compliments. As I mentioned before - we're only humans and deep inside we still be kids, so to speak. So, I had my Christmas treat after all and I do thank McHardy's for keeping TOP customer service's standards that make the whole shopping experience with them as a truly unforgettable event for their clients. And what about the product itself? Only one word - just GREAT! Through my whole life I've had, I believe, 5 or 6 vacuums. I have to say to you, my friends, - the FUTURE is here. We live in a revolutionary time of a GREATEST technological achievements. Dyson is, without any doubts for me at least, the leading Pioneer in finding again and again the ways to surprise us with the results we may have of such a routine operation as a vacuuming. And buying it from McHardy just adds the final touch of Magic. I'm already recommending that Company to my friends and colleagues. And I am doing it because I AM satisfied Client - it feels GOOD.
