Product Overview

DC47 Animal has the latest Dyson cyclone technology - 2 Tier Radial cyclones. 32 inner cyclones arranged in two tiers work in parallel to increase airflow and capture more microscopic dust than any other. Because canister vacuums with wheels can be awkward to maneuver, DC47 Animal has Ball technology. The vacuum pivots on the spot with the pivot point located near the center of the machine. A spring-loaded cuff absorbs sudden movement to help the machine follow you as you use it. Axle bearings reduce friction, enabling the ball to rotate smoothly. This vacuum cleaner comes with an air-powered brush bar. Anti-static carbon fiber filaments remove fine dust from hard floors. Stiff nylon bristles remove ground-in dirt from carpets. The brush bar can be switched on and off for different floor types. DC47 Animal also comes with a combination tool and stair tool. These tools are stored on-board the machine for easy access. The adjustable wand handle are detachable - allowing tools to click-fit directly to the handle or the end of the hose for cleaning awkward places. DC47 Animal is one of Dyson’s quietest vacuum cleaners. It is compact and lightweight, making it easy to carry and store. The clear bin is made from tough polycarbonate - the same material as riot shields and crash helmets. Bin emptying is quick and hygienic. DC47 Animal captures more microscopic dust than any other. It is compact, light to pull and follows with greater control.

explain the differences between the dc47 animal, dc39 animal (canisters) &dc25 animal upright,

Asked by: amad
Hi it's Vince with Dyson. The DC47 Animal canister is designed with the latest 2 Tier Radial cyclones. Moving on our latest Ball technology, the DC47 turns on the spot, is compact, light and easy to store. This unit's carbon fiber floor tool has both nylon bristles and brushes made from pure carbon fiber – selected for its anti-static properties to reduce static build-up on hard floors. The newly designed Dyson Tangle-Free Turbine tool is included with this model as well. The DC39 is a canister vacuum that features patented Dyson Ball technology and provides the maximum amount of suction at 275 air watts. The unit is designed with Ball technology to turn on the spot, and with remodeled airways the DC39 is designed to maximize suction power. The Trigger head tool eliminates the need to bend down and adjust between floor types. The unit has a maximum reach of 32 feet and is designed with a telescoping wand. The DC25 is a lightweight model that maneuvers of patented Dyson Ball™ technology and provides 220 air watts of constant suction while weighing only 16.12 lbs. If you do have any further questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at askdysonus@dyson.com. We are always happy to help. Best wishes, Vince

Customer Reviews

Dyson Ball Compact Animal Canister Vacuum, Purples / Lavenders is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 258.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but... I purchased this machine because I am a pet owner, have hard wood floors and vacuum quite a bit. I have 3 large labradors, so dog hair is everywhere. I have had the DC47 for about 3 months and the suction is excellent, better than any other machine I have tried. However, it is advertised as an animal machine and falls short in some key areas for me. The cord really needs to be longer, as I have to unplug all the time. The suction head and joints have way to many small pieces and groves, as dog hair gets in and it is hard to get it out, this is key to longevity with dogs. The canister tips over quite easily, simply turning while moving from carpet to hard wood. The dirt container also collets hair in the grooves and seals, making it difficult to empty and clean. I try to keep my machines clean and free from hair as it can accumulate and cause the machines to lose efficiency. So far, the DC47 has done a good job and like I said the suction is very good, but time will tell on longevity. Certainly needs fewer places for hair to collect as static pulls hair into all the small places.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lightweight and easy to use I purchased to get rid of a monster upright that weighs at least 40 lbs. I have severe osteoarthritis, I have had 3 low back sugeries and I have OA in my neck and back, my hands, thumbs, knees, elbows and ankles. My spine surgeon has limited me to 20 lbs. or less. This vacuum, DC47, is lightweight I can lift it without back pain which is important. I vacuumed my living room and this machine picked up a lot of dirt that my upright obviously missed. The attachments are fantastic for cleaning the electronics:laptop, LCD TVs, the TV stands, printers, sound bar, the brush is so soft I could clean all these without worry of scratching. You need a light touch for your chachkies and it gets all the dust. I have no problem with emptying the dust bin, no problem getting the dirt out. I look at it this way;the more I have to empty that means the more it's picking up. My home is small and the canister needs no help getting around up and over the floor mouldings, no problem with tipping over. I have had both uprights and canisters, I prefer canisters. I don't need to move furniture, a canister with wand makes it possible to clean under anything without moving it. Overall I am extremely happy with my Dyson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My lil sugar I named my little dyson Sugar, since suga means suck in Swedish and I thought the name appropriate since these smaller canister vacuums are so cute! But don't let the looks fool you, this lil thing is a beast. I bought my DC47 recently but haven't used it at home yet since I just moved, however I did take it to work and cleaned my office which I don't think has been vacuumed for years. I think I could taxidermy a small animal out of the amount of hair it pulled and we're talking about only a cubicle sized office. I'm so impressed with the weight, how easy I can get to every little nook and cranny by the way the nozzle rotates. There were some long hairs that did get tangled up in the nozzle but since I'm easily able to remove it, it took but a minute to get it clean again. It's really quiet too and just overall makes me want to use it more often. I don't see vacuuming so much a burden anymore! Highly recommend this model if you hate upright vacuums like me, got a small place, and have tight spots you need to get to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute, Light and Powerful We purchased this vacuum to replace our older Dyson DC07 that was amazing, but had gotten beyond repair (it lasted a good 10 years). We live in a 2 story townhouse, 1500 sq ft. The downstairs is all tile with a small area rug. After doing research, we decided to go with a canister vacuum for it's good reputation on tile floors. This vacuum is awesome on the tile & I just love the small vacuum head that can reach areas our old upright never could without using the hand extension. It is light and easy to carry up the stairs and vacuums carpet very well, too. Downsides: I wish the handle was a bit more ergonomic. My husband doesn't have any gripes, but my hand is a bit sore after vacuuming the house - not extremely bad but enough to mention. Also, the canister is so itty bitty. We have 3 kids and a dog - sometimes the canister needs to be emptied mid-house cleaning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love my DC47 Animal !! I have two cata, one of them is long hair. Tumbleweeds of her hair accumulate in ever corner and tiny crevice in my apartment. My old upright could not handle this. I dreamed of geting a Dyson for years. Now that i have my petite powerhouse at home, I love the power, of course, but I did not expect how much it's light weight and easy maneuverability would make my vacuming experience so much easier. To my own benefit, I'm actually vacuuming a lot more! i would have liked to give the DC47 a rating of 4.5, but I only had the choice of 4 or 5. My only complaint is that the DC47 is awkward to store. My old upright was kept out of sight behind my bedroom door. This little model is harder to hide unless you take it apart. While I adore the retractable cord, I wish Dyson could figure out how to incorporate a retractable hose. Nevertheless, this issue is minor when held up against themany good points of my favorite vacuum.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I hate it I hate it. I have 4 kids and 4 dogs and needed what I thought was the Rolls Royce of vacuums. It is way overly designed. Looks great but a pain. Fur gets caught in the angles of the tubes that feed into the filter and I have to stop and pull out the fur with tweezers. (Really?) When I pop out the canister and open the bottom, dust flies around. It's dirty to clean. The SMALL attachment for hard wood floors has an ear piercing noise and a crazy round device that pops all the time, making the suction stop. I have to stop and awkwardly pull it out to make it suck again (not easy) . It's a pain in the neck. So I called Dyson and she said I can drive 3 hours round trip to the nearest Dyson store to get a 20% reduction in a new bigger version at full retail. Really? Dyson is NOT user friendly in any aspect of my experience. They were also not interested in giving me a better experience in any way. (When I asked about pulling the hair/dust out of the suction areas with tweezers, she told me just had to get used to it.) Don't buy it. I am sorry I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for what we need. Our Family: -2 Adults, 1 Child & 2 Boston Terriers Our Home: -1008sq ft [1st floor, not counting partially finished full basement] -Built around 1970 -80% Original Hardwood [About 10% of that has a rug(s) on it] -10% Linoleum -10% Tile First Dyson product. This little, powerful, canister is exactly what we wanted. I thoroughly researched what it can do/was built to do...after receiving it, it does exactly what Dyson says. Purchased Multi Angle Brush as well as Asthma & Allergy Kit in addition to DC47 Animal. Pro's: -Small, maneuverable, powerful, average noise for a vacuum, range of abilities with the accessories & ease of use. +Great feature: Pressure release, you will love this if/when the head snags on a rug or surprise object. Con's: -Only able to attach 2 extra tools to vacuum wand. [Flexi crevice tool & Soft Dusting Brush replaced what came in the box with the DC47] I acknowledge the price difference between Dyson & typical vacuums, however, I firmly believe you cannot find this level of quality/ability/polish for a lesser price. I want to point out that using a canister is FAR different than using a standard vacuum. Once I got accustom to it I don't think I'll purchase an upright again. Upon receiving this I vacuumed the entire house, which was done with our old vacuum the day prior. Usual story, the new Dyson found GOBS of dirt in our home. I generally clean one or two rooms a day, not typically doing a whole home cleaning in a single swoop. That fact allows the cord length & bin size to work well for me. The bin is easy to dump & easy to tell when dumping is needed. Sure it is smallish, but your home should never be dirty enough to have the bin size of the DC47 become an issue. All things connect logically & work well. I especially like the carbon head as I feel it cleans our hard surfaces well & far easier than using a broom. The Tangle-free Turbine tool truly is a marvel, works great on pet hair as well as human stragglers, I use this on our throw blankets & couch pillows. I highly recommend this vacuum if our family & home are similar to yours, best vacuum we have EVER owned. I also make these recommendations to Dyson on future models: -either increase the # of accessories that can be attached to the wand or place the 2 connectors on opposite sides of the wand. This would allow 2 of the wide accessories to be housed on the wand without interfering with another. Bottom Line: It works, it's easy & it makes sense. You cannot go wrong with this model, provided you do not have a massive home & plan to vacuum it all at once.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DC47 Animal I like this so much better than my upright Dysons, which have many faults. This DC 47 is lightweight--which I wanted for stairs, furniture, etc. It is smaller than I anticipated but still has good suction. It is great for stairs. The upright is awful for stairs. DC47 cord is much too short but I realize it needs to retract into that little machine. The cord is flexible--the upright cord is a nightmare. The upright is stiff, cannot straighten where it bends when put back on machine and is the most annoying part. Also, the hose on the upright is so stiff that it will not expand more than a foot or so. The DC 47 cord is short but great. My daughter has the DC3? Animal and loves it. I used it at her house and decided to buy the DC47 even though I said I would never again buy a Dyson. So, I have only had this machine for a month, but so far I like it and it does remove cat hair along with dirt and dust from most every surface.
