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 5.0 out of 5.0 How many ways can you say LOVE?!? This is the second Dyson vac I've purchased and it is, BY FAR, the very best. I am owned by 3 indoor cats which, of course, means lots of fur and dander. In addition, my house is (for some unknown reason) extremely dusty (as my housekeeper has told me). Since my DC65 Animal has arrived, I have vacuumed EVERYTHING in this house including the blinds, ceiling fans, lamp shades and anything else standing still. To my amazement, the soft brush attachment I used on my blinds cleans as well as washing them! Amazing! I have told every one of my friends and family members (who will listen) how fabulous this vac is. Thank you, Dyson Team! April 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Piece of Equipment Our 8-10 year old Dyson beater bar stopped working. We decided to look for another Dyson and wanted a version that specialized in pet hair due to owing three dogs. Dyson vacuums really are the best on the market. They pick up hair and debris quite well and the fact that there there are no consumables (bags/belts etc) to purchase they simply can't be beat. We bought ours at a club store so we also received several more attachments which come in handy. On a side note, I dismantled my old Dyson, replaced the failed part and it's back up running. Kinda nice to have a backup upright. We also purchased the battery powered pet stick-vac. We love our Dysons..... April 3, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Flimsy feel DC65 has plenty of suction power and the tools are handy. Gets up a lot of unseen dirt! But the overall feel of the vacuum is flimsy. It's difficult to push it in a straight line. The handle is wobbly. And it takes extra effort to make it 'click' so it'll stand up straight by itself. It's too heavy to carry from room to room by the handle, and pushing it from room to room can be awkward due to the wobbly nature of the vacuum. When turning it on/off, one must be careful not to get a bracelet or anything caught in the suction of the attachment tube at the top of the handle. April 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best vacuum I've ever owned! I've had this vacuum for 3 months now and the suction power is still 100%. All other vacuums I've owned would have lost their suction by now because the tubes were clogged with pet hair. I did have one issue...cleaning out the car with it, there was a feather that got stuck and I didn't realize it. Could not figure out the issue and why I was losing suction. So, I took it apart and found the problem. Easily fixed! It was very easy to take it apart and put it back together once I figured out what the problem was. I used the online support guide to help guide me. Very pleased with my Dyson Animal DC65. Love the way it glides through the house with ease and I feel confident that my floors are actually clean after each vacuum. April 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful This is a great vacuum. Easy to assemble and works fantastic. The suction is amazing and cleans the carpet deeply. The dual function for hard surfaces such as tile is nice and easy to use. The cord is sufficiently long to reach several rooms without unplugging. The attachments and tools are very nicely thought out and useful. Overall this is the best vacuum we have ever owned. It moves very well and gets into all the nooks and crannies. In the past I have shied away from the Dyson due to price, but several name brand vacuums later we finally broke down and bought the Dyson...and I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. If is definitely worth the money. March 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Love it....even more! This is my second Dyson Animal, and I love it even more than the first one! I would still have the first one, except I loaned it to my son, and someone broke into his house and took the vacuum and a few other things...it was at least five years old, and was still working perfectly. What was so impressive when I received my new Dyson, snapped it together and turned it on, was the ease of operation (my first one was before "the Ball"). It is as close to effortless to operate as such a powerful vacuum could be. The other minor engineering improvements have made this machine as perfect to use as possible. There will never be any other brand of vacuum for me, but Dyson! March 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dyson for Life I recently purchased the Dyson DC65 Animal and have been very pleased with my purchase. This is my second Dyson, I still own and use the earlier model of the animal. The part I love most about the Dyson is the power it has to pick up dog hair and dirt! We have 3 Labs and we put the Dyson to the test constantly. Another favorite feature is that you can take the machine apart and clean it. It is so easy to put back together. I am a true fan of your product! By the way, the older model is at least 10 years old and is just as powerful as the new one. April 1, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sucking it up.... While I like the Dyson system and its performance in general, this latest model doesn't "feel" like a quality piece of equipment. The connections seem loose, the product seems to torque more than it should and it just doesn't feel like all the bolts, screws and connections are solid. My IPhone feels solid. My Mercedes feels solid. My vacuum cleaner, unfortunately, does not. This is not to say that it doesn't perform - it does and does so quite nicely. It just lacks the tactile feel of a quality piece of goods. Less emphasis on tricky visual design details and a lot more attention to solid construction would make me happier. March 6, 2015
