Product Overview

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.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can this vacuum be used on hardwood floor and laminate floor?

Would the floor be scratched? if it can be used on hardwood and laminate floor, which mode should be used? and what are the suggested ways to use the vacuum on these floors?
Asked by: owner
Hi Owner, It's Vince with Dyson. The DC65 Animal is designed to handle both carpets, hardwoods and laminate flooring. We recommend disengaging the brush bar when using the unit on hardwoods and laminates. We will be happy to provide additional details on the functionality of the DC65 via email at Best wishes, Vince P.

Does this new vacuum actually click into an upright position?

Asked by: jafrapatty
in fact it does and the sticker on the machine shows that you push it forward after returning to the upright position till it clicks and then it will stay.

Hello - does this model have a retractable power cord? Thanks!

Asked by: LeeAnn
Hi LeeAnn. It's Vince with Dyson. The DC65 is not designed with a retractable power cord. Two cable winders secure the powercord to the back of the unit for easy storage. We will be happy to answer any additional questions you have regarding the DC65 via email at Best wishes, Vince P.

Can I stop the suction in the upright position?

Hi! I just got this vacuum and love it, except one thing... when I click it into the upright position, it automatically starts sucking in the wand, which means it attempts to suck in my hand, hair, etc. because the wand is facing up at me. Any way to stop this? The DC25 had a solid cap, whereas this one has slots on top.
Asked by: GhostwriterJG
Not that I know of. The vented cap was probably designed to avoid sucking in body parts. I had one of the original Dyson models with the same feature only much more noisy. It's probably safest to turn it off.

Customer Reviews

DC65 Animal Upright Vacuum is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 1987.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4 star product but 10 stars for customer support!! I bought my first Dyson in 07 and it still works like a champ. I got tired of carrying it up the steps so bought this lighter weight Ball in '14. I had trouble with the canister and also with the machine falling over when I used the attachment but "lived with it" because the overall machine is so superior to any other vacume that I have ever had. I mentioned those issues in a review recently. Dyson immediately sent me a whole new canister set up!! Wow! I should have spoken up sooner. Thanks Dyson! (It does still fall over easily, but the suction far outweighs that inconvenience.).

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 Best Vacuum Ever I bought this machine because I own a dog and a rabbit, I could not believe the amount of dirt that I was getting out of the carpet, dirt and dust that was left behind from the owner before me who owned the house. This Vacuum does a great job, I would never purchase any other product again except a dyson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this vacuum! I have a dog that sheds a lot and this vacuum picks up everything! I have cordless I use daily but when I vacuum the whole house, I bring this one out. It never fails me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! the only vacuum that works on pet hair! Love it. Use it both for home and for my business. Works better than any other vacuum I've ever used.

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 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded even our expectations! We already knew that Dyson is the king of vacuums and had always wanted one. We used our new DC65 today and were blown away! It is so easy to use! It took 99% less effort to use than our last vacuum and worked 10x better. It handles very well, it's extremely quiet, and works even better than we hoped. The features are awesome - switching from carpet to flooring was a breeze. We were in shock with how well the suction worked on the hard flooring. The attachments are awesome and work very well, too. What all of that being said, it was the first time we used it. I hope it will continue to work this well over the next few years. Bravo, Dyson. Bravo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vacuum! I've gone through a number of vacuum cleaners, but this is the best so far! Easy to use and has great suction. Really cleans deep down into carpet. Multi-function for whole house use on everything. Great product!
