DC47 Animal has the latest Dyson cyclone technology - 2 Tier Radial cyclones. 32 inner cyclones arranged in two tiers work in parallel to increase airflow and capture more microscopic dust than any other. Because canister vacuums with wheels can be awkward to maneuver, DC47 Animal has Ball technology. The vacuum pivots on the spot with the pivot point located near the center of the machine. A spring-loaded cuff absorbs sudden movement to help the machine follow you as you use it. Axle bearings reduce friction, enabling the ball to rotate smoothly. This vacuum cleaner comes with an air-powered brush bar. Anti-static carbon fiber filaments remove fine dust from hard floors. Stiff nylon bristles remove ground-in dirt from carpets. The brush bar can be switched on and off for different floor types. DC47 Animal also comes with a combination tool and stair tool. These tools are stored on-board the machine for easy access. The adjustable wand handle are detachable - allowing tools to click-fit directly to the handle or the end of the hose for cleaning awkward places. DC47 Animal is one of Dyson’s quietest vacuum cleaners. It is compact and lightweight, making it easy to carry and store. The clear bin is made from tough polycarbonate - the same material as riot shields and crash helmets. Bin emptying is quick and hygienic. DC47 Animal captures more microscopic dust than any other. It is compact, light to pull and follows with greater control.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 232 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WOW! So for the first time in 20 years I have a new Vacuum! The old one served me well but it went out in a blaze of glory! Literally! Ordered this one and tried it out for the first time today. This vacuum is awesome, it will take a little time to get used to but I really do like the fact that there are no more vacuum cleaner bags to buy. I also like the idea of being able to take it apart and clean it easily. Small and compact follows you around the house easily, and all the little tools cleaned out under the refrigerator really well. May 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 This one great Machine This is my 3rd Dyson I just I gave my old Dyson to my daughter, which she really likes. I purchased the animal. DC47 It is a great machine. You can go crazy reading reviews .Take your'e time pick the right tool for the job. I am 69 yrs old live in a tri-leveal With two dogs. four floors are carpeted the other's are tile and wood. This is a smaller machine which is great for me. I might empty it maybe a little more often,than bigger machine .But that is ok This is easy to store, Great for under the tables,beds and other furniture . It has lot's of power, Would I buy it again YES I would. The other bonus is the Dyson people, they are great to help you, too make the right decision. The DC47 had a real nice beat, it was easy to dance with and I gave it a 5 Star rating . April 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Small but powerful What strikes the user first is the thoughtful design that has gone into the machine, and as you examine the parts more closely, you appreciate the close tolerances that have been achieved and how all the parts combine into an efficient and light-weight machine that has the power to produce very good results on the tough jobs. The design is functionally effective and in style exhibits an artful appeal. If there is a slight drawback, it is that the cannister does not hold much before it needs to be emptied. The ease of emptying, though, reduces the impact of this limitation. In general, it is a great little machine! March 17, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Dyson. Dc 39 animal canister I purchased this vacuum bc I heard so much good about them well wheni I first bought it everythime I used it I would get so mad bc I didn't pick up well and looses suction on carpets a lot so I put it in the closet for about a year And thought I would try it again well I still absolutely hate this vacuum this has to be the worst vacuum I have ever purchased I will ever own a another dyson again the upright vacuum for walmart works better on my carpets than this does this vacuums attachments are driven by air suction not plugged into power I think that's why it doesn't pick up good March 22, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Vacuum - needs a longer cord This is my second Dyson vacuum. My first, which I still have, is an Animal DC14. I used that vacuum for everything I could. Retiring to a home without any carpeting prompted me to purchase a canister vacuum, and of course the only consideration was a Dyson. I love everything about the DC47 except the power cord length. When using the DC14 I was able to do my entire house alternating between two outlets. Now, with the DC47 I can't do an entire room without moving the plug several times. April 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Greatest vacuum ans cusomter service I owned a Dyson for about 6 years. I have a large home and use it constantly. After about 6 years, it finally failed. I brought it to a store to have a fixed. They could not fix it, and tired to convince me to buy another brand, as they did not carry Dyson. I always thought that Dysons were priced high, but found that inferior vacuums are priced about the same. My wife insisted on another Dyson. We have used other vacuums in the past, but nothing picks up like the Dyson. Also, due to its ergonomic design, it moves around my house and under furniture with ease. We cannot image buying anything but Dyson vacuums. March 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 DC47 Animal Review I received this as gift and if I were to purchase a Dyson, I'm not sure I would have choose this. It works fine on my hardwood floors but is not best on carpet. If your whole house is hard flooring I think it would work great! If you have carpet with a high pile, I would suggest a different Dyson vacuum. April 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! I am so pleased with my purchase. A friend of mine has one and swears by it so I thought I would finally purchase for myself. I've spent so much in the past on other brands and was not happy with how they cleaned. I'm sure you know what I mean, going over and over and over the same area and still not picking up the dirt. I have animals and my new Dyson works great, I was amazed and some what embarassed at how much hair and dirt I pick up when I first used it. It is light weight I can carry around if I need to or pull when I need to. I would highly recommend making the investment, I am very happy with mine. February 16, 2015
