Questions & Answers

how does this vacuum hold up against long human hair?

most vacuums like the Hoover windtunnel one I currently have, I have to keep removing the hair from the roller at the bottom because it gets stuck so bad and lessens the suction of the vacuum
Asked by: chow
My daughter has long hair, and after about a month of use we have to unravel her hair from the brush underneath, using scissors and an OR instrument to pick it all out. It gets very embedded in the roller.

What is the suction difference between this and the slim Dyson pet vacuum? Which is better?

Asked by: Cathy
While I haven't tried the slim Dyson pet vacuum, I will say the Ball Animal 2 is average as far as suction goes. Being specifically marketed to pet owners, we've been disappointed that it isn't strong enough to easily get the cat hair off of our upholstered dining room chairs. Additionally, it gets clogged easily and the roller easily gets tangled with hair and other debris so you'll be taking the vacuum apart quite a bit to keep it in top shape. I wouldn't buy it again if I had the choice.

Debating between this and Model 253425-01 that is $200 cheaper. Why would i choose this over that. Love my old DC40. Thanks for your help!

Asked by: Dana
The animal vacuum is better based on the brushes. It picks up a lot more things especially hair. I mean all women shed hair, and this vacuum picks it up really well. And to me personally, the animal has a lot more suction power.

We decided to replace the vacuum as we had such good luck, cheaply built and flimsy construction… don't get it

When I purchased the Kenmore about 10 years ago, I compared it to the top-of-the-line Dyson that was available at that time. Surprisingly, the Kenmore had a stronger suction and more convenient tool selection, so I went with that model instead. Well, after a decade of great performance, my Kenmore was ready for retirement and I was ready to give Dyson another try... and boy am I glad I did! This Animal 2 Upright Vacuum is everything I wanted and more! The first time I used it I picked up SO much debris that my old Kenmore had been leaving behind! And I vacuum my home 3 times a week, so theoretically, there shouldn't have been much for it to get. But it just shows the improvements that Dyson has made to their products over the last 10 years. I'm hoping I get as long of a life out of this tool as I did my last... but even if I don't, it's still worth every penny for the level of clean it provides in the meantime! If you're on the fence about this Animal 2, I say take the plunge and buy it. You'll be glad you did!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design compared to the last Animal It won’t lock upright so you can push it to the next room. It gets extremely hot, blowing hot air out of the balls to the point you can’t wear sandals or barefoot with this machine. It CLOGS UP! It says no serviceable filters but it’s false. When you take the canister off and remove the outer part and expose the inside (just snaps out, no screws) you will see wire mess going all the way around near the top. This wire area clogs up with fine dust and makes the machine get even hotter! My only remedy is to blow air through here about every 3rd or 4th use. FAIL. The old Animal was so easy, worked so well, easy to clean, not this one. I also noticed that although the suction is better (yay!) it’s because of the flexible rubber baffle that surrounds the head. But, knowing how this machine will be exposed to dust, heat, dryness and brushing fibers....I doubt his delicate rubber baffle will last more than a year. So, I’m sure that I’ll have to be buying replacement parts for years to come.

We purchased this one again as we were so impressed with the one we purchased about 8 years ago. The new purchase is flimsy in design compared to the original one we purchased. It is difficult to release the handle portion. I don't like the suction from the top of the handle until you engage the beater bar. The wand is hard to take off of the handle and return to it's position when not in use. We still love the suction and ease of movement and long cord that comes with this newer animal and would recommend as a good cleaning tool but not so much when it comes to ease of use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic! My 3rd Dyson and this is the BEST! Only awkward feature is the power and brush motor buttons are interlocked and that causes it to start with the brush motor running. Not so good when beginning on a hardwood floor. So the procedure to power up on a hardwood floor is to put the machine in the upright position, push the power button, then push the brush motor button (to disable it). The trap is when upright, the brush motor is automatically disabled so you don't have any feedback to remind you to press the brush motor button. Every time you power it down this procedure must be followed to resume.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A BEAST My husband bought this about 9 months ago after the oreck which was 20 plus years old died. I considered another oreck. So glad we bought this. We have 2 dogs that have access to the yard through doggie doors and are constantly in and out. We also have a cat. The house is 2000 sq. Feet of off white ceramic tile with multiple runners and area rugs. I vacuum no less than 2 times a week, usually every other day. This is a great vacuum. It has insane suction and gets the hair. If I place the plug strategically in the outlets, i only have to unplug and move cord once to vacuum entire house. This is the best part, i babied this machine at first because of the cost. I vacuum my concrete screened in porch with this beast. We live in south FL so that means I am picking up pet hair, dead bugs, sand, and anything else out there. The attachments are great. I use them on furniture and tight areas. I even used them on cover of pool table. Not directly on felt, the suction would ruin it. But I was in a hurry and ran the attachment over the cover instead of dusting it...worked great. Only complaint is that the hose is tight. A rep. At the store recently told me to wrap the hose around the machine for a day to stretch it. Makes a difference. As a person who uses this vacuum quite often, I highly recommend it. It has made life easier. Now, we are waiting for Dyson to produce an automatic vacuum to make life even easier. Will not buy auto vacuum til Dyson puts one on market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Dyson Animal 2 I bought this to suppliment a 10 year old Dyson animal that still works. I got this attachment upgrade for no charge. Immediately i discovered the great suction, and maneuvering capability. Excellent upgraded machine. But what made me race to review it was the animal grooming tool. My 10 year old husky golden is 110 lbs and has more fur than any animal I have had. He is a pain to groom, so with hesitation I tied him to a pole in my LR and hooked up the Dyson to the attachment. It took a minute to realize how fabulous this attacment is. I pushed the lever so the bristles could comb my dog. The dog did not care at all. It filled up fast, then I released the lever and all hair zipped into the cannister. 20 minutes later I had gone all over Bear the dog, and filled 3/4ths of the cannister. Generally to brush him by hand takes way over an hour and he is unhappy. This time he moved from side to side, I got the whole dog, and didn't have to deal with the huge amount of fur that is now sucked into my Dyson. This feature is terrific. I was sure Bear was not going to take to it so fast. Not sure my Persian cats will feel the same. If you have a furry dog, this is a great feature. See enclosed pic of dog and the Dyson. By the way, I think my old Dyson is still a good machine, but this is superb, and the auality is great. The suction is improved, the tools are fantastic, it is lighter and has a nice big cannister. I generally only get this excited when gold and diamonds are involved, but this is a great vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best/most powerful ever!!! This Dyson Ball Animal 2 has super strong suction and has a very powerful cleaner head/brush bar that digs deep into the carpet. You just know that it is getting deep down into the carpet and getting the most dirt out. It is very easy to push on both my carpets and bare floors. The machine is a good size and not too heavy. It has a very nice long cord and lone hose and wand. It is my go to for the best cleaning possible of all my vacuums. Great product Dyson!
