Get an upright if you have lots of animals, dc07 14 27,33 any of those models, the dc32 is a dc23 without the stowaway hose , the uprights offer bigger bin capacity and far superior cleaning ability. I have a dc23animal that we use only for the hard floors and I am always having to clean out the cyclone as stuff gets stuck in it. If you must have a cylinder a dc19t2
I am so sorry that I sold my 19 and replaced it with the 23. its not a bad machine but the dc19 is far better. stuff never got stuck in its cyclone.
we also have a dc25 and a dc27 for the carpets , the 2 is nice but the bin is to small , other wise wait for the dc41 to arrive, some freinds have bought them in the states and all are raving about it , apparantly its great for getting pet hair of carpet
