9 posts in this topic

need a new vacuum, as I ran over a bouncy ball with ours and it busted up!! I know I want a bagless model, but does anyone have any recommendations?? I briefly looked at them at wm. are the dysons worth the money, or will the ones for $150 to the job they claim to do. I don't want to spend the money for a dyson if I don't have to, but want a vacuum that cleans!!

Dysons are worth the money. We went through a bunch of cheaper hundred dollar ones. Broke down and bought a dyson a couple of years ago and it's been awesome.

Do a search on here for Dyson and you'll get many responses for both the Dysons and other models.

We have a Dyson, am happy with it, but there's many with other models that they're happy with as well, for a cheaper "investment".

I have an Eureka it cleans, and didnt cost much, it is about 7 years old and I havent had any problems with it yet. I had a Kirby before this, and I like the Eureka much better, its alot lighter, and the Kirby broke in 1 year, they wanted $300 to fix it. I bought the Eureka for under $100 and it cleans well.

I just went thru the same thing. I did lots of research and ended up with a Dyson DC17 designed for a house with pets. I did a test when we first got it, I vacuumed the house with the old vacuum then the Dyson. Un freaking believable what it picked up! The model I have alows me to turn the power broom off so I can do the hard floors as well. The Dyson is built with very high quality parts, the wand is a really cool idea, it's super easy to empty and it's pretty quite for a vacuum as well. Yes, it's worth the money.

We went through a vacuum cleaner every year until we bought a Dyson. We've had it for three years now with no problems. The hose cracked last year. We called the company and had a new one the next day at no charge. We questioned if we should get the pet model and the customer service person told us that they both had the same motor. Her words were don't waste the extra money.

Refer to the old post. Also, check the "Carpet and Rug Institutes" HSOforum on approved vacuum cleaners. You will notice not a single Dyson on the list. Dyson's have a very high rate of suction and the rotating beater bar does not have a height adjustment to lift the power head off the surface of the carpet. The longer tufts get sucked up into the rotating brushes-causing the upper portions of the tufts to untwist, fray or develop a fuzzy appearance.

I was wondering about what the "pet" model had that the other didn't, other than a $50 increase. We went with the pet model anyways because the place where we made the purchase only carried that model in the "DC" series and we had a 20% coupon so it made it cheaper than the regular model.

I check this one HSOforum everyday. This morning they have a Dyson DC18 for $259. Great deal. You can find it at woot dot com.

    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
    • And aren't a big fan of eating it?   I'm OK with marinating and grilling the breasts but the rest of the family aren't big fans.  And I can say I prefer duck too.   So I tried smoking the breasts - and loved it!  And now I want more!   I took the simple route since it was my first try.  I picked up some High Mountain game bird and poultry brine and let em brine for two days chilled.   I put them on my smoker grill with the coals in the side fire box.  4 handfuls of wet mesquite chips during the 2.5 hour smoke at about 250 degrees.  I brushed with olive oil and teriyaki marinade to finish.  Pink and tender throughout, not jerked dry and tough.  Phenomenal.     I ate the last one yesterday on the deer stand.  After pulling the tenderloin off for the chefs treat, I just slice it thin against the grain.     Give it a try if you feel like the only things to do with geese are to grind em up.
    • So what do you propose we cut in order to offset that grand per job subsidy? Please be specific.   Do you propose doing the same for competing companies or do you like to play favorites?
