Not bad but could be WAY, WAYYYY better
I bought this vacuum Jan of 2021 so I've been using it regularly for over a year and it has it's good points and very bad points (Mostly bad). The good is that the suction is still what I expect from Dyson as you can see in the pictures. We have a Siberian Huskie and a long haired cat that shed like crazy and it picks the hair up no problem. I had the purple animal Dyson before and it was perfect this one nope. The first complaint is the smell OMG. Used it once or twice after we got it and then it started smelling like vomit or some god awful smell. And no nothing like that was sucked up with it, it just came outta no where and still does it to this day IT STINKS! We use it, clean it and bam IT'S BACKKK. Another major downfall is the fact the thing just does not like standing up. You push it up till you "hear" a click and let go and BAM on the floor it falls yeah NOT GOOD. Also trying to push it around while it's up right like putting it away or getting it out to use and it constantly unlocks it's self and you have to stop and push it back up till you "hear" the click and hope it stays. My purple one NEVER had this issue cause it had a peddle to push to unlock it. So why exactly did you go even cheaper and get rid of that feature? All about making money at the sacrafice of quality of course. It also feels like it so cheaply made it's going to break. Again NOTHING like my old one. Another down side is the hose is so STIFF as I've seen others say. You try to use it and BAM over falls the vacuum cleaner. Over and over and over again. It also should have had a bigger bin as well. Have to empty this thing more then you would a babies diaper. So between the STINK and the not being able to keep it locked and the extremely stiff hose as well as the small bin I have to give it 2 stars. And it's only getting 2 because of the suction other wise it would be 1! Oh I also forgot to mention the cord on this thing gets HOT. I reach down to move it out of the way and it is very warm. Just something else to be mindful of.

    Burning hair and plasitc
    After about a few uses I noticed a burning smell. I figured it was hair so I cleaned it out and went on my way. Realizing it didn't get fixed, I brought it into a Dyson service shop and they told me there was hair built up where the 2 brushes join and he had to take it apart to clean it. I asked if this was something that needed to be done regularly and I was told it wasn't. The stench never completely left despite pulling the hair out frequently and now the brush bar refuses to turn. Turns out there was so much hair still in the bar that it melted the plastic.
    Response from Dyson Customer SupportDec 8, 2021
    Hi there, this is Kelly with Dyson. I'm sorry to see from your review that you're having some repeating issues with hair accumulating around your brush bar. If you have any pets in the home, or any one with longer hair, you'll want to ensure that this part of the machine is cleaned more often. Based on your experience thus far and the issue you're having occur, when hair is able to accumulate in this part of the machine, it can get wrapped around the spindles of the brush bar, causing damage to the brush bar and brush bar motor. While I understand you have already taken the time to reach out for support with the problem, we'd value the opportunity to learn more regarding your experience, as we're dedicated to customer satisfaction. Please consider emailing us directly at askdysonUS@dyson.com. We look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes, Kelly Dyson Customer Support
      Works well and like the assortment of tools.
      I see many complaining that they are unable to use this vacuum on carpet, they obviously are not pressing the button to switch to carpets (see photo), if this is done there is no problem with the vacuum being easily pushed over a carpet.

        Super happy REPEAT customer!
        This is my 2nd Dyson ball. My first one lasted 18 years! I purchased an Animal 2, and LOVE it! I'd vaccummed w/ my old vaccum and then right after w/ my new Animal, and wow!! Tons of crud came up! Sooo happy, u can take these apart and clean them, the suction/power is amazing and it literally pulls ahead of you, as if it has power drive! I'd DEF recommend this to anyone AND it's totally worth the price!

          Crazy suction!
          Out of the box, the suction was so great that I couldn’t even vacuum on my plush carpet. I came on here and saw reviews that said the same and while some seemed to be beneficial, they could break the warranty of the vacuum. Using zip ties around the bottom is a non-permanent way to break the seal enough to vacuum over my carpet. we used 4 zip ties around the edges after removing the bottom plate then placed it back on. Worked like a charm!

            I kept reading mixed reviews and was a little nervous to make this purchase but I’m so glad I did. I had the Bissel Pet Hair Eraser and would vacuum 2-3 times a week. After putting together this vacuum, I decided to test it out. You know that feeling when you’re cutting wrapping paper and your scissors start to just glide right through? That’s the exact same feeling I got here. The suction is so strong it almost pulls itself forward. I could not believe the amount of stuff that came out of my carpets! Do I live at the beach?! Where’d this glitter come from?! Has my rug always felt this nice?! I had to empty the cannister 3 times for my bedroom alone. The same bedroom I’ve already vacuumed twice this week. I feel like my whole life has been a lie. I haven’t tried out all the attachment’s yet but I’m sure those are awesome too.

              Dyson Ball animal 2 amazing vacuum
              I bought this vacuum a few months ago and it’s very powerful it’s the best vacuum I had have my favorite color is the tangle free turbine tool you don’t have to clean the brush roll really but a really important feature is that it’s a sealed system with HEPA filter ration which is good because now it’s going to be spring spring right now but it keeps dust in the vacuum and not let the dust leak out into the world and trying to breathe then which is really good !

                Dog fur gets caught between brush and motor
                First off the suction on this vacuum is wonderful and I have not had the problems others mention of it being too difficult to use on carpet. We have a golden retriever which is why we bought the Animal ball 2 to join our Animal V8. Unfortunately it requires weekly maintenance to pull dog fur that's intertwined between the brush rollers and the motor. Uploaded are photos for a better description. If you don't do this frequently you can smell the machine overheating which I'm guess severely limits it's life expectancy. It's disappointing that such an expensive machine requires this process every few uses.

Please feel free to reach out to us at askdysonUS@dyson.com, and we will be in touch. Best Wishes, Miella Dyson Customer Support
                  POWER. LIGHT. AGILE.
                  My last vacuum was the first animal that dyson came out with and it finally gave out on me after close to 10 years. I wanted the most powerful vacuum available and it sounded like this one was the solution and I'm usually very underwhelmed when I receive a lot of products these days. It seems like a lot of companies go for "ok", we've become so accustomed to average that when we use a product we always think "it's good enough" "it does its job". But this, this went above my expectations. From the looks of it, I thought it would be a bit heavier than animal 1 but it almost feels lighter. One of the reviews I read someone actually complained the suction was too strong that they could barely move it. That is the sound of someone who needs some exercise in their life bc I definitely didnt get that feeling from this vacuum, dont get me wrong, its powerful but not to the point its unmaneuvarable. All the little problems I had with the first animal have been perfected by dyson. Such as the extension that was very stiff and difficult to use, the short cord, and the small container. I'd definitely order from Dyson itself bc it comes with 6 attachments where as others will only give you 3. You want the mike tyson of vacuums? The d rose? The adrian peterson? The conor mcgregor? THIS, this here is the one. This is the one.

                    Cons.. Product feels cheap, attachment placement is cumbersome, the mechanism to go from upright to vacuum really feels cheap and I dont think it will last very long. Will not allow the vacuum to pick up dry cat food or cheerios. Brush easily gets cluttered with hair. Disappointed in a 500 dollar vacuum so far. Pros.. Great suction.

                    Hello there, this is Kelly with Dyson. I'm sorry to read your review, and to hear that you've found the Dyson Ball Animal 2 to feel cheap.

They are tough, so we subject them to 50,000 hours of testing and 550 individual tests – all to ensure that they can withstand a lifetime’s hard use.

The Dyson Ball Animal 2 was engineered for homes with pets, with features that dig out dirt, hair and allergens. Dyson Ball Animal 2 does feature the strongest suction among our uprights - 270 air watts, for tough tasks across all floors.
