Product Overview

DC65 is a powerful upright vacuum on a ball, with the strongest suction of any other vacuum* It uses Radial Root Cyclone technology and a reconfigured brush bar to remove more dirt and dust from the home. The redesign of the brush bar means that the bristles have been made shorter and stiffer allowing deeper carpet penetration to remove more dirt, while maintaining superior performance on hard floors. The Dyson DC65 is a powerful upright vacuum cleaner designed for multi-surface cleaning. It achieves this through the combination of Radial Root Cyclone technology and a self-adjusting cleaner head which seals in suction across carpets and hard floors. The latest Ball technology allows easy steering into difficult places. More key technologies are housed inside the ball, reducing components on the outside of the machine. Removing clutter from around the ball makes it even easier to steer under and around furniture. Other vacuums have a choice of settings for different floor types. This means that when moving from one floor type to another, suction power can be wasted. DC65 has an active base plate which self-adjusts to create optimal contact with every floor type. This reduces air leaks and retains more suction power at the cleaner head.

  • *Tested to ASTM F558 at the cleaner head, dust-loaded against upright market
  • Radial Root Cyclone Technology, remodeled airflows help remove more dirt, dust and allergens from the home
  • Reconfigured brush bar with 25% more power drives bristles deeper into carpets removing more dirt
  • Ball technology maneuvers easily around furniture, obstacles and into difficult places

what is difference between DC65 complete #205472-01 and DC65 #205473-01?

Asked by: jasavy
Hi it's Vince with Dyson. The DC65 Animal and DC65 Complete models are designed in the exact same way functionally. The biggest difference between these units will be the color of the vacuum, and the additional accessories that are packaged with the DC65 Complete. These accessories are compatible with the Animal model, and available for purchase at a later time. Best wishes, Vince

Customer Reviews

DC65 Animal Complete Upright Vacuum is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 1935.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Animal Owners Answer! This is a great machine for multiple pet owners - we have 4 small house dogs, 2 cats and 1 large very furry Australian Shepherd and can destroy average vacuums. This machine has great suction, doesn't "blow" all the loose fur around like previous vacuums I've use, and is super easy to clean. I blow all the dust and dirt out fairly frequently with an air hose when dumping the canister wash parts and filters every 2-3 mo. This is a terrific machine that is hardy, is versatile for carpets & hard floors, and easily switches to tool mode as needed. On top of ALL that, Dyson is an incredible company that stands by their machines and warranty - a breath of fresh air in the stale world of customer service! Thanks Dyson!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Comparison! This vacuum picked up two canisters full of dirt only a couple days after using my previous vacuum. Showing how much my old vacuum left behind! My old vacuum had a Hepa Filter but bothered my allergies after using it and left a nasty pet odor behind! The Dyson only seemed to leave a clean smell and was much quieter than my previous vacuum. It was also enjoyable to use and seemed to float along the carpet cleaning it better than I expected. I have had no allergy symptoms and my carpet hasn't looked this clean since I had them professionally steam cleaned!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DC65 Animal Complete This is my second Dyson which I purchased after having a second hand one for the past several years. Never in my wildest dreams would I have spend this kind of money on a vacuum cleaner, but I found that the used one worked so well beyond my expectations that would never have a different brand again. This DC 65 did not disappoint me either. Its cleaning power is second to none. I have only two small disappointments; one is that it does not store my most often used tools conveniently, and the other is that when using the want I really have to hold the main unit or it will tip over if i get any distance from. Overall though, I highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for pet hair! Theres a test to see if your vacuum is picking up pet hair. After you vacuum, use a rug shampooer (any kind) If you still get clumps of hair the vacuum is not working good enough.You can also use a gym shoe and use the bottom of the shoe to sweep the newly vacuumed carpet. I tried this with my old vacuum and sure enough, it didnt pick up the majority of hair. Then got the DC65 and while not a cheap vacuum, it did what it said it would do, and with the clear canister you can verify what a great job it does...with no bags get what you pay for...good job Dyson

Rated 5 out of 5 by from UNBELIEVEABLE! This vacuum is truly amazing. The suction power is above and beyond. Easy to use. The only drawback is the hose, slightly hard to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy I LOVE my Dyson DC65 Animal Complete! I can't think of a single thing I do not like. It is easy to move about. The attachments are easy to use and do a great job. The suction is so powerful. The auto adjust for different carpet and floor heights is spot on! When I got my Dyson I had just vacuumed the day before but of course I had to take my Dyson for a test run.... WOW was I surprised at all the yuck left behind by my old vacuum! The vacuum is so easy to clean as well, comes apart very easily and the filters are a snap to clean. All in all - very satisfied with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DC65 Animal Complete...AMAZING We have two large dogs. A 70lb white Shepard/Lab Mix and a 50lb black Pointer/Lab Mix that love the couch. My husband is, in fact, allergic to pet dander. I struggle with hair balls and a sneezy/wheezy man if I don't take steps to prevent them. The DC65 Animal Complete not only picks up all pet hair...but also the dander. The extra tools are a LIFESAVER!! The upholstery tool is fantastic for hair removal from the dog bed, couch and bathroom rugs. The additional dusting tools help with removing dander from various surfaces. It is AMAZING and I would recommend it to EVERYONE hi has dogs and/or allergies to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the demise of dog hair I had just finished vacuuming with my older vac, when it decided to go belly up. We purchased the dc65 because we have two dogs and two cats. I decided to re-vacuum when I got home with my new purchase. When I finished I was amazed that I had filled the container with enough hair to build another animal. Plus a great deal of dusk. Wow, what a difference! There are two things I don't care for , one is the click when you let the handle down to vacuum and then when I am finished ,it doesn't want to click back to upright easily. However I will put up with that because of the great cleaning I'm getting.
