HI,

Actually, it sucks so hard that I can't use it. We have an area rug in my computer room and the vacuum (a DC17 Animal) gloms itself onto the area rug and makes a perfect seal on it ... which makes the beater bar turn off. The suction against the rug is so much that I have a hard time pushing the vaccum back and forth, even with the beater bar off.I love it, I just wish it were a little less ... enthusiastic?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

From my experience there are two major design oversights on Dysons and they appear to have no interest in correcting them.
1. You cannot use them on area rugs or bathroom rugs due to the suction. Yes, they suck up the rug, often damaging it or jamming the brush bar. For most people this is part of a whole house vacuuming job. I have to pull out the old Hoover Wind Tunnel to do these. It really does seem that they could have added a low setting or a vent to allow rugs.
2. The small plastic wheels. What a mess! Flip over your Dyson and chances are that they are clogged and starting to drag. Marketing calls it an "Animal" but some how they could not bother to seal the bearings. They are nearly impossible to clean and expensive to replace.

I do not know about the dyson, but I have been using neato for about a year now and this is the main vacuum.

Dyson model: 59, Ball & V8
I have yet to find the perfect vacuum, Sharks, Hoover’s & Dyson’s. Have ball Dyson, cordless dc59, and just purchased cordless V8. The big ones are not best for area rugs. I can use cordless on carpet and hardwood floors. Only issue with any are he tiny wheels that get clogged with hair. Solution pop them out with small flat head screwdriver, remove hair and pop back in.

I wish Dyson in the U.S. would use the same options as their version in the UK. Using the Animal 2 as an example (which I will have mine in a few weeks)...

1. The cleaner head assembly on the UK version has a height adjustment for minus - normal - plus and was looking into purchasing one from the UK, but the heads attach differently on the 2 versions.

Image

2. The UK version has a much better wand assembly. Theirs has a reticulating elbow and joint that the hose connects too so it flexes and rotates along with the hose, versus the U.S. version the hose attaches right to the end of the wand assembly and the hose can get crimped.

Image

3. The U.S. version, the only option for cleaning under a bed, couch etc. is using the Flat Out Tool which is garbage in comparison to the UK which has a Turbine Floor Tool with a beater bar.

I am posting about the "Flat Out" tool for cleaning under the bed. It looks like just what I need, but I read
negative assessment on it. Could you elaborate. It looks to have a roller brush and facility of tilting the wand
handle in all directions. I received a multiple angle flex tool with my DC41, but it will not stay in the desired state
when in use. Very bad tool.
