Dyson DC41 Animal Complete Upright Vacuum Cleaner with Extra Tools, Blue

Special offer

    Trade-in any vacuum and receive money off selected Dyson upright or cylinder machines.

    Conventional vacuums with bags clog and lose suction. Dyson upright and cylinder vacuums are different. Patented cyclone technology spins dirty air at high speeds, flinging microscopic particles out of the airflow and into the bin. There’s no bag, so there’s no loss of suction.

    From 10 Sept to 28 Oct 2014, you can trade-in your old vacuum cleaner of any make and get money off brand new selected Dyson upright or cylinder machines. The trade-in offer is available at all participating John Lewis stores and through our website.

    All Dyson upright and cylinder vacuums come with a free 5-year guarantee – parts and labour. And because they have lifetime washable filters and there are no bags to buy, there are no extra costs.

    Terms and conditions:

    The offer is only available if the customer agrees to dispose of an old vacuum cleaner he or she already owns by entering the promotional code DYSON100X at the end of checkout, and bringing their old vacuum cleaner to the small electrical department next time they visit a John Lewis store.

    If the customer wishes to return the product, only the discounted price paid will be refunded and the old vacuum will not be returned. Also available in John Lewis shops. Offer ends 28 Oct 2014.

Q & As

Dyson DC41 Animal Complete Upright Vacuum Cleaner with Extra Tools, Blue 4.3 5 45 45
Um, not as good as my old one! I bought the DC41 after my DC14 died. I have only used it twice so early days especially as I am not used to the Ball. My first impressions are that it is not as good quality as my old one. It is very plasticky and doesn't feel as sturdy as the old one. I feel it may break quite easily (but I could be wrong). The long lead is fantastic. I can hoover the whole downstairs from one plug. Again the hose extension isn't as good as the old dyson as there is no handle on it and it the actual hose doesn't extend easily causing the whole machine to lift (this could be just because it is new and stiff). I am not feeling the love for the extended hose. The machine is quite heavy (for a small person) and manoeuvring, rather then being made easier by the ball, is more unsteady so if you have weak arms or wrists this may not be the machine for you. The suction is great having no problem with all that cat fur. So overall I want my old Dyson back but know I have to persevere with the new. I'd ask Dyson to ditch the ball, improve the quality of the plastic, make it lighter, and look at the mechanism of the hose extension on the DC14. Do I regret buying it? No, there is no choice. Dyson is best but could be better if they stop trying to improve something that doesn't need it. 24 July 2014
Makes hovering a joy if such a thing is possible! First of all as usual ordering and delivery of goods by John Lewis outstanding. This is a really impressive piece of equipment and will hover up the most testing of fluff. This is my first upright vac and I am impressed how easy it is to move around, though a big machine I have found it relatively light. Up to dyson's high standards. Would recommend for heavy duty areas 15 July 2014
Powerful, but........ More powerful than my previous Dyson upright and the flat, manoevreable head gets right into corners and to the edges of kitchen cupboards but you cannot wheel it on its back wheels without the cleaning head falling forward, you cannot clip tools to the body and dust etc clogs the inside of the cylinder which has to be dismantled every time you empty it. Very expensive. 09 July 2014
Feels more flimsy than my last one I bought the DC41 to replace a DC07 which suddenly gave up the ghost after 10 years reliable service. There is no doubt that the DC41 vacuums thoroughly. However, I personally find the whole thing feels a lot flimsier than my old Dyson and I can't imagine this one lasting 10 years. The bin is more tricky to open than my old one and somehow, more than once I have managed to end up with dust on the floor as I'm emptying it. Also, the vacuum cleaner sometimes needs a few shoves before it snaps back into the upright position. The flex seems to be longer than the old one which you might think would be an advantage, but actually I seem to end up with it round my feet quite regularly. On the plus side I like the fact you can see through to the brush as the plastic is clear. Also as it's flimsier means it's more light weight to carry up and down stairs than the old model. And the carpet stripes don't bother me - at least you can see that the room has been vacuumed. I suppose I thought 10 years on, Dyson would have made some amazing improvements and in my opinion they haven't, so I'm rather disappointed. Yes, it vacuums brilliantly, but so did my old one. 16 June 2014
Just what we expected Strong sucking power and vacuum and flexible handle to go everywhere. 03 June 2014
Most powerful vacuum yet. Great suction, good brushing, comprehensive tools. Does leave lines on some carpets, as other reviews have reported, but these soon disappear. Quite heavy - a frail, elderly person may struggle to carry it up stairs. 28 May 2014
Best vacuum cleaner ever! This is our second Dyson, but it's our first upright vacuum cleaner (have always opted for the cylinder design before now). This vacuum cleaner is awesome! It's performance is second to none, and the additional tools are excellent. Yes, it's heavier than some of the other Dyson models, however it's just as easy to manoeuvre. It does leave visible lines in our carpet after use, however this doesn't bother us in the slightest as it just demonstrates how it out performs any other vacuum cleaner we've had. Extremely happy with this purchase! 20 May 2014
Not Disappointed! After many years, I have replaced by old Dyson Animal with the new DC41 and could see straight away that the suction was much improved and it was much easier to manoeuvre. The pile on my rugs and carpets seem to have a new lease of life. The self adjusting cleaning head made light work of moving from my laminate floor to my rugs which meant that I no longer have to lift it to move it from one surface to the other. I can see a use for all the included attachments so I'm really please we bought this model. 19 May 2014
