Thumbs up Pets vacuum cleaner

Hi!

I am looking forward to buy a new vacuum for pet hair, but haven't decided yet. After hours and hours looking around the web I found many vacuum cleaners, yet all seem good enough. I don't need something expensive (I just have 4 cats, they shed, but not a lot - probably a lot, but..), but I don't mind spending money on quality stuff.

Any ideas?
Thanks!

I have a Hoover windtunnel P.A.W.S. I like it.

Why start a fire with flint and sticks when they've invented the lighter?

I use the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Bagless Vacuum. It does a great job at picking up cat and dog hair. The canister fills quickly though, so you might have to empty it a couple of times if you're vacuuming a large area.

Another vote for a Dyson. I know they are pricey, keep a look out for deals.

Amazing what that thing gets up

I have this too and I hate it. I liked it when I first got it with one short haired dog. Then I got my German Shepherd and every darn time I use it the hose gets completely clogged and it's a pain to take it apart to unclog it, and this is with using it every day for only my living room.

Oreck!

I bought one about ten years ago and fell in love with it.

At the time I had 4 dogs and 3 cats. I vacuumed several times a day. When my Oreck came, I did the test by using my other vacuum first. I couldn't believe how much more hair and dirt the Oreck pulled out of what looked like a clean carpet.

A decade later it's still going strong. If it ever breaks, I will replace it with the same.

I had two Golden Retrievers when I purchased the Dyson Animal about 7 years ago. It is pricey, but works great. It has the detachable "wand" which allows you to do stairs, under the couch, ceiling corners etc. I have only two complaints: it is very heavy and it doesn't use a bag so it's messy to empty. My sister also has hairy dogs and uses an Oreck. It works great as well, and is very light. She doesn't like the fact that it doesn't have the wand. However, when she purchased her Oreck she got a free Oreck mini canister vac that she can use on her stairs, etc. You can't go wrong with the Dyson Animal or the Oreck, it just depends on how you plan to use it. If you have to carry it up and down stairs frequently, I would recommend the Oreck because the Dyson is so heavy. If my Dyson ever dies, I plan to replace it with an Oreck because I want something lighter.

I also love my Shark Navigator Lift Away. Mine came with a pet hair upholstery attachment; I vacuum my comforter. (The fur babies think it is their bed.)

I also love the Shark Navigator. I bought mine several years ago and it still works well. Recommended it to my M-I-L and both D-I-L's. They all got one and love it too. I have a long haired shih tzu that doesn't shed much, but a short haired Akita who sheds enough that I could easily make a full body wig for the shih tzu from just his loose hair. lol

Kenmore Progressive Canister vac I have had for 9 years. I have 4 cats and it does a great job. I have had people comment that they can't see any fur in our home. Comes with a great motorized attachment for doing furniture and stairs.

The other thing I wanted to mention is that because its a canister vac I can vacuum clear under my bed, behind the headboard easily.

Hi! Wow, lots of answers!

@Kae I've been searching for Hoover windtunnel P.A.W.S. and it seems nice. Can I ask if the wheels are made of rubber? I've read that a similar model Hoover WindTunnel T-Series has rubber wheels. Thanks!

@mndisneylovinmom - I've read a lot about Dyson animal vacuum cleaner, but also about Dysons in general. Do you have the one with the ball technology? Aren't they heavy?

I've also done my research on Amazon reviews, and also on some internet sites with vacuum cleaners. I found on this website: Best vacuum for pet hair also some cheaper models of vac cleaners (Black & Decker Dustbuster, Bissell Pet Hair Eraser and more). Do you also recommend a vac cleaner (cheaper ones) used with a vacuum cleaner? I mean, for couch or for my car?


Also, has anyone used automated cleaners like Roomba or Neato? They seem super expensive, but do all the work themselves, even some recharge and then go back to work. But I don't think they do the job as good as a Dyson, for example. What do you think?
