Just purchased the DC39 Animal canister vaccum, best vacuum I ever owned. Had to get use to using this vacuum, but by the time I was half way done I fell in love, It was so easy to go around and under furniture, very light weight, My last canister vacuum was heavy to pull around, not this dyson. Picked up so much more dirt, nice suction, love the stairs attachment, such a pleasure to clean now. The pole is easily ajustable by just pushing a button. My new best friend, thank You Dyson!! well worth the money.
