DC65 is the most powerful upright vacuum on a ball, with twice the 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 DC65 cleans better than any other vacuum across carpets and hard floors. 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. Suction tested against upright market to ASTM F558 at the cleaner head, dust-loaded as per IEC 60312-1. Tested against upright market, dust-loaded, using ASTM F608, ASTM F2607, and IEC 60312-1 5.1, 5.9.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 2089 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 AMAZING My husband gave me this vacuum for Christmas. I know a lot of people would think that is a crazy Christmas gift, but I have to say, this is the best gift he has ever given me. I waited for several months before doing the review because I wanted to make sure it kept working as well months later as it did when I first used it. I can not believe the stuff (fine dust and dirt) that this vacuum pulls out of my carpet. When you look at my carpet, you see nothing but clean...and then I vacuum...wow!!! It just keeps pulling up stuff. I would recommend this to anyone that wants their carpet really clean, and I have to thank my husband for such a wonderful gift. April 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Animal Complete Seasonally we live in an RV in Arizona with 2 cats, a Golden Retriever, and shag carpeting. The built in RV vacuum system just doesn't hack it so I purchased the Animal Complete DC65. So far it has performed well and overall I am very pleased with the product. Experience with an earlier upright Dyson was not as good since it was hard to maneuver and the hose system was a pain in the butt to use. The DC65 marks a vast improvement in those categories although my only complaint is with the upright locking system when you want the vacuum to stand by itself, it takes two good pushes with the handle to do so other than that it's a great machine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent! My husband and I are absolutely in love with this vacuum. It is worth every penny. Our carpets have never been cleaner or fluffier. The first day we used the vacuum, like others, we first vacuumed with our old vacuum. Ha! The Dyson picked up all the left over dog fur (we have a golden lab) and a pile of dirt that was alarming. I couldn't believe how much dirt it found that our vacuum continually missed. The vacuum is such a success that when my parents visited us, they were so impressed with our carpets they asked to borrow it! Well, they did and you know what, they bought one too. We are absolutely thrilled with this purchase and highly recommend it to others. April 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What a Superb Vacuum A friend was telling me that Consumer Report did not rate the Dyson as high as other vacuums. I don't know what product rated higher, but I've never used it. This product does everything it claims and cleans like a charm. You will not regret owning one of these machines. May 14, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Animal Complete Sucks well. Really well. Hose is long BUT when you stretch the hose out, if someone isn't holding the vacuum back, the hose immediately goes back together making it hard to clean the top of the steps when the vacuum is at the bottom of the steps. You keep having to re-stretch the hose out. Also, need a brush attachment with a 90 degree angle so I can get all the way under the bed, couch, etc. Why can't anyone that makes vacuums figure this out? Don;t you people use your own products to clean? Try vacuuming under a queen size bed with a brush attachment. The angle is such that you can only go about 5 inches under the bed. I should be able to put a brush attachment on the long straight wand and completely vacuum to the other side of the bed. April 19, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by almost perfect I very efficient machine. I have two cats and it really cleans up their hair. I am mildly allergic to them so keeping the volume down is important. I was shocked after the first vacuuming as I had vacuumed the house with my old machine just a couple of days earlier. I only dislike two things: 1. Using the hose with the rigid extension is cumbersome. I would much prefer to have an external house much like a canister type that would interface to the machine. That would make it much easier to use. 2. the Machine does not roll well on it's rear wheels. It tends to want to a mode where the ball is on the floor. Makes it a little harder to transport.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by In Love with an Animal My new Dyson Animal has given my carpets new life! I love the power with which my machine pulls the dirt and dust, which I didn't even realize existed, out of my carpets. Seeing the dust and debris collect in the canister while I'm cleaning brings my Animal's power to reality. The extra long cord enables me to clean most of my house without having to plug and replug the machine. I have already recommended Dyson to many of my friends. It's easy handling makes reaching every nook, cranny, and crevice a breeze. With the Animal came many attachments, which I have already used to clean drapes, furniture, and ceramic floors. I should have had a Dyson many years ago. March 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best vacuum I have ever owned I have waited a long time to try the Dyson DC65 for myself and I got the best deal anyone could get on this machine so I had to get it. It was the best choice I could make. This vacuum is awesome. It works terrific on my carpets picking all the dog hair that my Beagle and Lab shed. Fantastic product and I'm only sorry it took so long for me to get one. April 21, 2015
