Back to Basics rated the product 1 stars and mentioned in their review on Amazon “The Henry is far more effective at getting them spotless than this cumbersome piece of bulky awkward nonsense”.

Three customers concluded that this vacuum cleaner was not heavy. Five years ago Kiyone mentioned on Amazon “One of the big complaints on the DC25 was the small bin capacity (1.3 litres), which is now 1.6 litres in the DC40 and a hefty 2.1 litres in the DC41” yet they gave the Dyson DC41 Animal a score of 4 stars. Four years ago Mikatron said in their review of this vacuum cleaner on Amazon “I would imagine that if you're not a 6'3" chap like myself, picking the machine up or sharp turns could make cleaning hefty work”. Five years ago The Fat Monk wrote in their review “Manoeuvrability despite the hefty weight” but even so they still rated the product as excellent.

A number of people thought this vacuum cleaner was not thick. Mr. Challis wrote in their review two years ago “More worryingly that wobbly, plasticky handle had two cracks just below the bottom cable hook, allowing the dust container to come loose whilst manoeuvring/carrying it” . Roadrunner said on Amazon four years ago “I hope it lasts as long as the DCO1 which only has a loose connection and which I hope to continue using” in their Dyson DC41 Animal review.

Several customers wrote in their reviews that this vacuum cleaner was not tight. P. W. H. Smith wrote “It has the ability to turn in limited space and run tight against a wall” but in spite of that they scored it 4 stars. One customer reckoned that the Dyson DC41 Animal was not thin.
