Product Overview

The DC50 Animal Upright Vacuum is Dyson’s lightest upright vacuum, weighing just 11.6 lbs. with the performance of a full-size upright. Using advanced cleaner head technology, it includes a self-adjusting base plate for optimal contact on every floor type, a brush bar with anti-static carbon fiber bristles to remove fine dust from hard floors and stiff nylon bristles to remove ground-in dirt from carpets. With no bag, there’s no loss of suction; instead, patented cyclone technology spins dust and dirt from the air. 19 cyclones work in parallel across 2 tiers to increase airflow and capture more microscopic dust. Unlike ordinary uprights, the DC50 rides on a ball and turns on the spot, steering easily around furniture and into difficult places. It also comes with the tangle-free turbine tool, using counter-rotating heads with brushes to remove hair and dirt from carpets and upholstery. With this technology, there’s no brush bar for hair to wrap around, ensuring easy and hassle-free maintenance.

I it doesn't say, but is this the Dyson animal by any chance? if not, is that one for sale as well?

Asked by: RB23

When using on tile floors, should the brushes be "on" or "off"?

Our floors are mostly 16" tiles, and we have a dog. Which setting should be used in order to clean the grout without cracking the tiles?
Asked by: Alicia
I've used it both ways, I prefer to use the brushes, I don't think it will bother the floors. Try it in a small area to be sure

How many additonal accessories are includded?

I was wondering how many additional accessories are included? I also was wondering how many accessories altogether, as Im assuming the vacuum itself comes with standard ones as well.
Asked by: lunalavender
Hi it's Vince with Dyson. The DC50 comes standard with a combination crevice/dusting tool, and stair tool. The bonus accessories included are the mattress tool, flex-crevice tool and our new reach under accessory. We will be happy to provide details on the functionality of these tools via email at Best wishes, Vince

Customer Reviews

DC50 Animal Upright Vacuum with Bonus Accessories is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 341.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for smaller spaces! I am pleased with the smaller vac. Still lots of suction and a brush that doesn't get as tangled. I have mostly hard wood flooring with area rugs. I like the way it automatically goes from the flooring to the carpet. On the downside the tank needs emptied often because of the small tank. Also I have two long-haired cats, frequent sweeping is a must.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great new addition! I recently upgraded my first Dyson purchase to a new model. I LOVE it just as much as the first. It's light weight, easy to use. It cleans like a champ. My only complaint is that there isn't anywhere to store the much used attachments on-board. Bonus that the new cord is longer and this vaccuum is quieter than the last Dyson!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy on my Back/Hard on dirt! I have the large most expensive Dyson and love it. That being said, I have a fused back with back ache. I purchased the DC50 in hopes that it would be lighter and still deep clean. I GOT BOTH! It's lightweight and cleans as well as my larger Dyson Animal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easey to Use This is our 2nd DC50. We have a Husky and lot's of hair. We have one unit upstairs as well as another down stiars. The DC50 is easy to use and with high nap carpet works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome vacuum This vacuum is great. Lightweight but unbelievable power. I can't believe all the dust and dirt it gets out of our carpet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DC 50 Animal First the good: very lightweight, very maneuverable and great suction. Not the bad: the canister is waaaay too small to get any serious coverage completed before having to empty it. And, to remove pet hair, you not only have to empty the canister, but you have to take the canister apart to get the hair removed from it. And finally, the electric cord is way too short. Bottom line: expect a great vacuum, but be prepared to empty and take apart the canister and keep plugging and unplugging the cord from room to room. Had I known these issues, I most likely would not have purchased this model.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure why it's called animal Bought this to replace another pet vacuum. It is very light and compact. I was a little concerned about the size of the head but it has to turned out well. It maneuvers well and can fit into those hard to reach places. I can finally vacuum under my kitchen cabinets. I really like the way it turns on the ball. The big downsize of this vacuum is the size of the dirt container. I have to empty it before finishing a room. Sometimes more than once. I have to put my hand in the container to get all of the dirt and hair out. Yuck! I even have to use a hanger to get what I can't reach. This is not pleasant. I am very disappointed with this feature. For the price of this machine, I was hoping to get something special

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dyson ball compact animal- Objective review Hopefully my review will be helpful making a choice. I will be as objective as i can. I gave the Dyson ball compact animal 5/5 stars for the following reasons: 1) There's a lot of vacuums out there for different budges. When this Dyson went on sale i was able to keep it fairly on a descent price range, $100 off from original price though still somewhat more expensive that other brands, so the sale $100 off was a good deal 2) it really works. It cleans all floors nicely though we recently bought it so time we tell again if this continues. That canister fills up with dirt and animal hair fast and its nice to see a clean carpet. 3) its smooth and quite and light to operate through the floors. Plus it has a good length power cord. 4) easy to empty the canister once full. 5) comes with 5 year warranty, says so on the ball. 6) i like the accessories that comes with to help clean car floors and such as well as couches. Overall i have to think hard to find any negatives which may be no light, some plastic material around the canister and such but with 5 year warranty i feel confident about it.if you are willing to spent a little more and get some more benfits its worth it, since its on sale too.
