Questions & Answers

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.

What is the difference between the ball animal 2 upright & ball complete upright? Does the animal have more suction than the other dyson vacuums or do they have the same amount of suction with just different attachments?
Asked by: ma
I don't feel the Ball Animal has any more suction. It seems like it would since it is marketed to pet owners but we've been very disappointed. It was the first time I spent a good amount of money on a vacuum and I don't think it performs any better than the cheaper one it replaced.

No it is not. I wish it was because I cannot push it across the floor on my new carpet.

Ball Animal 2 Upright Vacuum Cleaner is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 473.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Before this Dyson I owned a phenomenal Kenmore vacuum. When I purchased the Kenmore about 10 year... Before this Dyson I owned a phenomenal Kenmore vacuum. 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!

This one would/will/is my 5th. I wanted an animal - I treasured my last one and I thought with Dyson going cordless, these animals would be marked down, this one was. It has great suction and my yellow ball clearly doesn't in comparison to this....and yet I am not in love with this one, I have cleaned it once and noticed a rubber belt - Perhaps? Not happy about that and I am still on the fence. The exit of the dirt is a bit - not dyson - if you will. The bottom is covered in the fine dust that others expelled. So I haven't had it that long and I have already had to clean the brush and dirt container - I have 1 golden retriever. My other DYSON now beloved didn't need that so soon and I had 2 goldens then. So, while I will keep this one, I will always want my last one and performance it delivered. Its sad. I love to vacuum and now I just vacuum. I feel even with the price reduction it isn't worth it. It sucks better than my yellow ball and stick dyson but it just isn't the same. I Love DYSON so I would recommend it with caution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've ever used To test this out I first vacuumed with my other upright canister after dog sitting, then I used the V10 and it pulled up even more, not much more but enough. So that got me wondering how good will the Dyson Ball Animal 2 do. So I bought one of those too and ran the same experiment on at my cabin where the dogs have been. Same results using my old and the V10, but I will tell you, the Ball Animal 2 really pulled out even more than the combination of the 2 previous vacuums before it. You would not believe how much more this machine can pull out of rugs and carpets. It's not as convenient as a cordless V10, but when your done you know you've got the best. The only regret you will have is not knowing how much dirt and hair you were leaving behind for years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very powerful but I would like the hose changed. I bought this because we have a dog that sheds an insane amount and I am hoping it will help with all the hair. The suction is shockingly powerful and it sucks up a ton of hair easily. Emptying the canister is very easy just hold it over the garbage can and push the button I really like that I can see if it is full vs my old vacuum with a bag where you never really know. I had a canister with a retractable cord previously so I am finding it annoying to wind up the cord every time. Why can't uprights have a retractable cord?????? My biggest gripe is the hose. I will just about never use the hard extension part so it is a pain to need to pull that thing out, lay it someplace then put it all back together every time I want to vacuum the couch (which is all the time) I would much prefer to just have the flexible hose and on the rare occasion I need the wand I will go get it from the closet. If it really needs to be with the vacuum at all times have it clip to the side or something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! My original Dyson Animal finally kicked the bucket so I called Dyson to find a repair store. The operator talked to me about where I had to go and then offered me the Ball Animal 2. I was skeptical but after thinking about it I ordered the Ball. All I can say is WOW! I have a couple of dogs who shed and i thought the origins Animal was good but this one is heads and shoulders above the original! The free attachments are an added bonus and do things I could not do before. My advice is BUY THIS MACHINE! You too will be amazed at its perfirmance and the attachments make cleaning so much easier!

It does a fantastic job. That being said, I would never recommend it or purchase another. Why??? The cord.... the cord is such a cheap material that it twists and tangles and can't be straightened out. And the cord holder? CHEAP thin plastic that won't even hold the cord while you are winding it up. For a vacuum of this price, why don't they use better materials or better yet, a retractable cord! Its too bad, because it does a great job IF you can actually get the cord untangled to use it.

This Dyson would be amazing and I would have given 5 stars if I could push it across the carpet. The vacuum is very powerful and works better than any vacuum I've ever owned. It works great on non plush carpet, like indoor/ outdoor and on bare floors. But on my new carpet I cannot push it across the floor. It is suppose to have automatic height adjustments, but it has so much suction power I can't tell. If you are strong and have lots of muscle you will love it.

Amazing amount of cat hair pulled from our wall to wall carpeting, used brick flooring and area rugs (which are taped with carpet doubled sided tape..... I would suggest being careful at locations where carpet has been fitted to other pieces... I noticed the extreme draw made the seams noticeable, but I brushed them to disappear again, and will use hose to do these lines.
