DC65 Animal Upright Vacuum

Frequently Bought Together

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.

Answer: 
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 askdysonus@dyson.com.

Answer: 
Yes, it does. It requires a fair amount of forward force to the point of practically lifting the back wheels off the floor. Rather disappointing for such a otherwise fantastic vacuum.

Answer: 
Hi this is Joe From Dyson,
Thank you for your interest. Like all of our upright style vacuums, DC65 locks into the upright position for storage and when utilizing the wand or hose for cleaning furniture and other cleaning tasks.
Please let us know if you have any other questions and we will be in touch as soon as possible.
Best wishes,
Joe

Answer: 
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 askdysonus@dyson.com.m

Can I stop the suction in the upright position?

This question is from DC65 Animal Upright Vacuum
March 27, 2014
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.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Hi it's Joe at Dyson,
The wand cap is slotted to help protect against loose fitting clothing that may have otherwise been sucked into the wand. The cap was solid on the DC25, as the DC25 does not have suction from the wand unless the wand is deployed.
If the wand cap were solid on the DC65, the self-defense mechanism (thermal cut out) would engage as it would cause the machine to overheat.

DC65 Animal Upright Vacuum is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 1982.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from DC65 Animal Complete This machine is GREAT!! I had a smaller version of the animal vacuum and gave that to my step-son, and purchased the DC65 Animal Complete. The only problem I have after using the smaller machine is that the DC 65 is heavier and a little more difficult to operate. It is just heavier. I'd use it everyday, but I am a Disabled Combat Vietnam Veteran who was blown up with a grenade and shot in the head, so it can be at times difficult to operate the machine. So I ordered the SV09 Absolute so I can do smaller areas without so much effort. but I will continue to use the DC-65 for major cleaning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I'm completely impressed with the cleaning power of this vacuum. I have pets and vacuum regularly. I felt I received decent cleaning coverage from my old vacuum but I was wrong. The first use of this machine filled the canister with pet hair. There should not have been that much hair since the last time I vacuumed. The Dyson pulls from deep in the carpet fibers. I could feel and see the difference. I also love the way the vacuum maneuvers with ease. I am so glad I made this investment. You will not regret it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful vacuum I waited a year before putting in a review to put this vacuum through its paces and it gets every particle and spect of dust. If it's true most dust is human skin, then the fine powder that ends up in the bin means I need to get better lotions for my family. I no longer use a dust cloth, I use the soft brush to dust attached to the extendable hose. The machine moves so easily and turns like a charm. It comes with a canvas holder for the attachments that hangs up, which keeps everything quick to get to. The only issue I have is with the hose. It doesn't stay extended when in use and wants to compact back to a tube. It's quite strong and I constantly struggle to keep it extended for use. I'd love to buy the canister but am afraid the hose on it would be the same. Other then the hose, I highly recommend this upright. Amazing machine!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from hair in the little wheels on the head I have one dog, a long haired German Shepherd. The little wheels on the head get clogged with dog hair and stop rolling in just 2 months. This makes the unit very hard to push. A serious issue, I take of the head every two months and get out my utility knife and small needle nose pliers and cut and pull the hair out until the wheels are free once again. Unfortunately, must be done every 2 months. Imagine if I had 2 or 3 dogs. Everything else on this Dyson is good, yes the commercials are true, it is a high quality vacuum that has the worlds best suction. I am offering to be a testing site for Dyson for the DC65 Animal or any animal type vacuum. I vacuum 3-4 times a week to keep up with the pet hair as a long haired German Shepherd does shed a lot of hair. Dyson is sending me 2 new replacement heads at no charge as we speak, Dyson stands behind their products, what more could anyone ask for? Go Dyson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent vacuum I bought this a few years ago and it has been nothing but great for me to use. I expect nothing less from Dyson than excellence as I have an older one that is used for my basement. This version of the Animal gets all the dog had and dander as well as the long hair of my wife and daughters. All the attachments are great and easy to get any clogs that rarely occur.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Customer Service I had an overheating issue when my unit was too full or the brush became clogged. The power shut off and I thought I was in trouble. Customer Service worked with me to solve the motor overheating problem. Great service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute WORKHORSE!!! Webster's dictionary defines 'workhorse' as "a dependable machine or vehicle that is used to do a lot of work", "something that is markedly useful, durable, or dependable". An added synonym should be this vacuum!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it Everything about this vacuum is good except for the wheel movement when it's not in use it always falls into usage position.
