Is this vacuum good for picking up dog hair

Asked by Nic February 25, 2021

Hi Nic, this is Kelly with Dyson. The Slim Ball Animal features 210 air watts of suction power and a spinning brush bar, making is great at picking up pet hair from any surface. Best Wishes, Kelly Dyson Customer Support

I think there may be hair wrapped around the brush? Try cleaning it to see if it frees it up.

Does it have a light?

Asked by Chris December 1, 2020

Answers

No lights, it sucks everything you do not even see it was there. Amazing suction power enough to get the job done.

Can this be used on a shag type rug?

Asked by Natalie November 30, 2020
2
Answers

Hi Natalie, this is Kelly with Dyson. You might find that with a higher pile, shag pile or thicker carpeting that you have trouble pushing the machine, due to the powerful suction, or because the cleaner head is self adjusting and will create a seal right with the level of your floors. You can, however, disable the brush bar, if your concern is using a spinning brush bar whilst vacuuming. Best wishes, Kelly Dyson Customer Support

I have a Dyson dusting attachment. Are Dyson accessories interchangeable among differing models?

Asked by KB November 30, 2020
2
Answers

Hello KB, this is Kelly with Dyson. Generally speaking yet. Tools across uprights are compatible with most other upright and canister models. Tools for cord-free machines, because they attach differently will only work with cord-free machines. Best wishes, Kelly Dyson Customer Support

I turn off the spinning function, it gets stuck with thick carpet.

Hose is shorter. And the whole thing feels cheap and flimsy

What exactly is the difference between this model and the more expensive Animal 2 model?

In short, the “2” models are basically updated versions of the original. More suction really and maybe some different attachments.

Miracle worker
I just want to throw my testimony out on top of the many... this vacuum is a miracle worker. I have a large dog who sheds, and I can say, with absolute certainty, that many a rug and carpet in my apartment have not seen the light of day FOR YEARS due to the thick layers of fur that held fast upon them. I have vacuumed, gone over every inch with a rubber broom AND a lint roller, to no avail. But once I brought this baby home, my life changed. I also want to throw this out there... I’m a petite person (4’10” to be exact) and I had no issue pushing the vacuum I received. I wouldn’t say it’s any more difficult to maneuver than any other vacuum I’ve used. I bought the vacuum on sale (~$200), but it’s worth every penny. If you’re on the fence about purchasing this miracle machine, I would recommend you take the leap. Below is a picture of the dust and fur the vacuum took from a 13’ x 14’ area that had just been swept with rubber broom

First vacuum review ever! Great product, easy to assemble, a caveman could do it (if cavemen vacuumed). Feels like you’re using a professional product with guts! Buy it, but find a sale - they’re pricey.

I have had my Dyson for a little while now. It handles different than my old vacuum so there is an adjustment period. It is heavier as well which I had to get use to. I would recommend it to any of my friends but not to my 80 y/o mom because of its weight. You can't beat the performance for the price though. If I had it to do over I would buy it again for sure. OH! I like the colors red and purple too! :-)

Hard to push on plush carpet
I bought this for my 75 year old parents, since their current vacuum was hard to push. I purchased this b/c it was supposed to be self-adjusting on all types of floors. The suction is AMAZING and works well on rugs and hardwoods, but so hard for them to push on their plush bedroom carpets. Unless there's a setting I do not see (other than turning off the rotating brush), we'll need to return.

Response from DysonProductExpertMay 12, 2020
Hello there, this is Kelly with Dyson. The Dyson Slim Ball Animal vacuum was designed to remove dirt and dust from all flooring surfaces. The advanced self-adjusting cleaner head will automatically adjust between your carpets, rugs and hard floors, for a powerful clean across your entire home. The spinning brush bar is great at capturing debris and pet hair. Also, the machine is certified to be asthma and allergy friendly, trapping allergens and bacteria within the whole-machine HEPA filtration system. We're sorry that in your use thus far, you've found the machine to be hard to push on plusher carpeting. Some machines, not just Dysons, may not be compatible with your plush or shag carpeting. In this case you would need to consult with your carpet maker to find out what machines would work best with their flooring. Most carpet makers will have advice on what machines are most compatible with your flooring. We would value the opportunity to learn more regarding your experience as we are committed to customer satisfaction. Please feel free to email us at askdysonUS@dyson.com. It will be our pleasure to provide support.
 
Best wishes,
Kelly

Great product!!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This vacuum works so well. The suction on it is unbelievable. It is easy to clean. Very easy to operate once you get use to it. It took me some time to figure out how to control it. It turns best if you just control it by moving your wrist. The retractable hose gave me fits every time I tried to snap it back in place. I learned that it works best if you pull the handle up and back at the same time you are lifting the retractable part. It then slides down and snaps right in.

Best vaccum ever
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So in love with the dyson slim ball animal vaccum. Its so easy to maneuver around and gets in places that most vaccums wont be able to reach. It has alot of detachable peices so you can vaccum anything and anywhere. It collected way must dirt than any vaccum i have ever had. Great for family's with pets amd allergys. It is a great investment. Beat vaccum ever.

Excellent suction, picks up everything!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've been using my Dyson for a couple of weeks now. Hands down the best suction I've ever seen from a vacuum. My kids and their friends run through our house constantly and track everything you can imagine in with them. We will generally vacuum on a daily or every other day basis. I'll use it continuously over carpet, rugs, hardwood and tile. I never stop to adjust it and the vacuum has no problems at all. Only concerns I would have is that it's a little noisier then what I'm use to, but I'm sure I'll get use to that. Also, it's a little challenging to move around corners and pushing on carpets. Again, not a huge issue and something I'll get use to. Assembly is super easy, took me about 5 minutes total to assemble and I've never used a Dyson before. A few parts to put together that all snap into place.

Best vacuum on the market
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was given the Dyson Slim Ball Animal to try and review. I absolutely love this vacuum, I love that it can be used on carpet and hard surfaces. The Dyson vacuum looks sleek and it compact so it fits almost anywhere. I will never use my old vacuum again. I highly recommend to everyone!

High quality vacuum!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am very impressed with my Dyson Slim Ball Animal Vacuum! Works better than expected with patented technology in carpeting areas. Refreshed my dull looking carpet, making it look almost new. Gave me even track marks and glides effortlessly; also it is very lightweight, which makes it a breeze to use. Maneuvers better than any flooring device I have owned in the past. The Dyson outshines all others when you transition onto hard surfaces-. It picks up pet hair, lint, and debris instead of blowing it around. The suction is amazing! I thought I kept a clean home until I used this one and saw the stuff accumulated in my canister- wow! After using it a couple times, I noticed I could breathe easier. I highly recommend this vacuum to family and friends.
