*laughs* No, no, not a dull question!!! :)
I have a Dyson. It’s a tank and it works great on the floors, and it yes, I’ve actually clogged a Dyson. Luckily it’s a lego style vacuum and you can take it apart and get to everything in two seconds.
However, I got rid of all the carpet in the house and have mostly hardwood floors.
I gave up and bought a Dyson after I caught my last vacuum on fire. No, really. It coughed, died, and a three inch jet of flame shot out the side and I picked it up in a panic, yanked the plug out of the wall, and threw it out the side door onto the gravel, then grabbed the extinguisher from the kitchen and ran out to put it out…
I turned around after I was done to five cats and four dogs watching from the kitchen slider door.
I think the consensus was “See, we told you that device was evil.” ;)
