The Dyson DC41 is our second, and more expensive upright vacuum cleaner for pet hair. It offers a tad more functionality, maneuverability and suction power than the Shark Navigator. The vacuum utilizes the typical for Dyson Ball Technology, which allows it to navigate very easily around your home and makes taking turns an incredibly easy task. This vacuum can handle all types of flooring and will most certainly rid them of any pesky pet hair. The main downsides of the model remain its high price tag and the abundance of plastic parts, which tend to put off customers when they are looking at an expensive model.
The Shark Navigator is our first Upright suggestion. Just like our canister model, the uprights bring the best from their class along – A lot of utility, good suction power and decent maneuverability. The Navigator is great at dealing with carpets, bare floors and ceilings. It’s very lightweight for an upright model and utilizes a swivel steering technology, that allows it to get to every corner of your home. The main downsides of the model consist of its habit to blow out hot air in your hands and its lack of retractable cord.
Starting off with the one and only canister model in this vacuum cleaner for pet hair compilation, let’s go over the Dyson DC 39 Animal. It is here not only because of it’s outstanding pet hair features but because it is one of the most successful canister products for pet hair. It’s medium price range makes it accessible to quite a few people, although it might stand out as a bit expensive when compared to our other suggestions. It brings along all typical canister vacuum upsides – great suction power, a lot of dust storage and multi-functionality. It does also share the main negative points of canisters – it’s heavier than other vacuum types and it takes up more space.
Now over to our handheld suggestions. We are starting with the cheaper one – the BISSEL pet Hair Eraser. Just like its name and category suggest, this handheld model is focused on dealing with all types of pet hair. It carries along the usual upsides of most handheld vacs – it’s cheap, lightweight and easy to operate which make it the best vacuum under $100 in the category. The Pet Eraser uses a wide mouth design that allows it to pick up a lot of dust and dirt in one go. The most positive traits of the model are its suction power and price tag while the major negative remains the awkward reach. While it can usually get to where you need it to go, the Pet Hair Eraser has slight problems with tight spaces due to its unique design – it can easily get stuck.
Last but by no means least comes our final suggestion – the Hoover Platinum LINX. This model is a bit more expensive than the other handheld pet vacuum cleaner featured in this review, but it has a lot to show for it. The model is very powerful for a handheld vac and can deal with even the most stubborn of pet hairs on your furniture, stairs, floors and even the insides of your car. Just like the other models, It also does quite well at normal vacuuming tasks and can put most of its competitors to shame. The biggest downfall of the model remains its rather high price tag.
