Product Details

Dyson DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner, Model DC41ANIMAL2

DC41 Animal is engineered for outstanding cleaning performance and ease of use. It has the strongest suction at the cleaner head, which automatically self-adjusts for different carpet lengths and hard floors. DC41 Animal has Dyson’s latest Radial Root Cyclone™ technology, and Ball™ technology for smooth steering. There's also a Tangle-free Turbine tool to remove dirt and hair from carpets and upholstery.

Features:

  • Radial Root Cyclone™ technology
    Conventional vacuums rely on bags to trap dust and dirt. But when you start to use some bagged machines, dust can clog the tiny holes in the bag. Some ordinary bagless vacuums work in a similar way. They use a central filter to trap fine dust, which can clog too. Suction drops, leaving dust and dirt behind in your home. Dyson’s patented cyclone technology captures more dirt than any other cyclone. In Radial Root Cyclone™ technology remodeled airflows maximize suction power. Improved flow efficiency reduces turbulence and preserves air pressure, so more microscopic particles are extracted by the inner cyclones. These refinements help remove more dust, allergens and pet hair from the home
  • Tangle-free Turbine tool
    The Dyson Tangle-free Turbine tool is the only turbine tool that doesn’t tangle. There’s no brush bar for hair to wrap around. It uses counter-rotating heads with brushes to remove hair and dirt from carpets and upholstery and releases it straight into the bin. The flexible heads and articulating base plate ensure that the brushes maintain constant contact with a surface – no matter how uneven. The heads are positioned so the brushes reach to the front and side of the tool, drawing in hair and dirt from all directions
  • Ball™ technology for upright vacuums
    Dyson Ball™ uprights ride on a ball, which pivots on the spot so you can steer with a turn of the wrist. The ball also houses core technology, including the motor and ducting. There’s less clutter, so it’s easier to clean into awkward places, along edges and around furniture
  • Strongest suction at the cleaner head
    Many upright vacuums use fixed settings. Their cleaner heads don’t self-adjust to different floor types – the bigger the gap between cleaner head and floor, the more suction power is wasted. With an active base plate it creates the optimal cleaner head contact for every floor type, reducing air leaks and retaining more suction power. It’s designed for outstanding performance across all floors – not just carpets, but the whole of your house
  • Powerful and durable
    DC41 machines are made from modified blends of materials selected for strength, flexibility and tolerance. Many parts are made from polypropylene reinforced with 20% glass fibres and high-impact PC-ABS. Using these materials means greater strength from less plastic - so the machine is lightweight
  • Motorized brush bar
    Stiff nylon bristles spin at up to 90 times per second to agitate carpet pile and dislodge ground-in dirt and pet hair. The brush bar can be turned off to protect delicate rugs and hard floors. The button is above the clear bin – no need to bend down to find it
  • Captures allergens. Expels cleaner air.
    Ordinary vacuums can’t always retain all the dust they remove – so some of them vent some of it back into your room in the air they expel. That’s the reason for the dusty, electrical smell. Dyson cyclones can capture microscopic particles such as pollen, mold and bacteria
  • Hygienic and quick to empty
    Emptying the bin on a Dyson vacuum is quick and hygienic. Just press the button to release the dirt. The bin is clear, so you can see when it needs emptying – and how much dust, dirt and pet hair the machine has captured. Dyson vacuums were the first to have clear bins – despite market researchers insisting it was a bad idea. Now clear bins are everywhere (though not all are made from the same ABS polycarbonate as riot shields, like Dyson bins)

    This is truly the best Dyson vacuum ever made. It's light, every maneuverable, has powerful suction, and it's very easy to use. In comparison to the DC25 Ball, the DC41 is far better engineered, and is better than its predecessor in every way imaginable. For starters, the DC41 has a much larger clear bin, and longer cord than the DC25 (the two most common grievances about that machine. With a cord that's 10 feet longer, and with nearly double the debris capacity, you will reach farther distances with less emptying. The little details on the DC41 should give everyone that uses it that the engineers put a lot of thought into designing the DC41 to make it more of a be-all, end-all flagship vacuum cleaner rather than just another niche vacuum with a specialty gimmick. The "Active base plate" ensures constant close contact with the floor surface for stronger pick-up. The brush roll has two distinct rows of bristles: one row of short bristles and one row of tall bristles -- this combination provides optimum agitation on both short and high pile carpeting. I was amazed at how well this machine deep cleaned considering it's rather small diameter brush roll. Cat hair, fluff, sand, and dust were pulled from my carpet every time I vacuumed. The DC41 Animal definitely cleaned my carpets better than my DC25, that's for sure! The "Radial Root Cyclone" system focuses air flow through the center of the cyclone assembly which promotes better cyclonic filtration since each of the 12 cyclones on the top of the bin receive equal air flow. Another design feature that I found rather thoughtful was the use of rounded airways to promote smoother and more efficient airflow. I recall seeing the DC07 with this same feature, but for one reason or another, Dyson lost focus on this feature on more recent models. I'm glad they brought it back on the DC41. Anyone with a keen eye will notice that the perforated shroud inside the clear bin has been replaced by a finer screen filter. This is to greatly reduce the likelihood of fine dust buildup, as well as promote greater airflow intake. The redesigned ball makes for a rather clean looking appearance since all of the ducting that would normally wrap around the ball have now been integrated inside of it. Since the wrap around ducting are no longer present, the DC41 has a much improved turning radius in comparison to its DC25 predecessor. Other improvements I've noticed include the larger dusting brush with softer bristles, the handle that is now fixed to the machine (makes for better upright rigidity), and I really like how the HEPA exhaust filter securely screws onto the ball rather than snapping into place -- having owned the DC25, I never liked how the exhaust filter felt loose and unsecured, even when snapped into place. Exhaust air would normally leak through the rubber gasket of the HEPA filter, and generate a lot of squealing and whistling. I will never have that problem with the DC41 thanks to its more proper design. Overall, this is a fantastic vacuum cleaner. Dyson definitely went all out in designing this machine. As having owned every generating of "The Ball" (DC15, DC25, and now DC41), I can say the DC41 is the best by far -- I loved my DC15, was disappointed by the DC25, but the DC41 is a quantum leap ahead of every Dyson in the lineup.

    The Good: The vacuum has excellent suction. I have two dogs and two long haired cats and it is able to pull the hair easily from the carpet. I like the smaller size when compared to my Dyson DC7. I like that the head of the vacuum is clear so I'm able to quickly identify if it needs to be cleaned. I also like how easy it is to access the brush in the suction head of the vacuum compared to my DC7. The vacuum is easy to maneuver. The Bad or what needs to be improved: I think Dyson over engineered the head of the vacuum for maximum suction. I have 3 kids under the age of 7 and they will spill popped popcorn and popcorn kernels in to the carpet. I will manually pick up the large popped popcorn and use the vacuum for the kernels and broken off bits. The vacuum does not pick up these kernels easily. I make multiple passes from different angles and it will still leave kernels. My DC7 even at 5 years old could pick up the kernels better than the DC41. If an item larger than dust is sitting on the surface of the carpet, the vacuum tends to just push it around instead of sucking the item up. I like the idea of the ball when vacuuming. I dislike the rear travel wheels when trying to move the vacuum prior to or after vacuuming. The Vacuum will "break down" in to the vacuum position where it's resting on the ball. I want to be able to move the vacuum using the rear two wheels like I was able on my DC7. It's frustrating when I push the vacuum forward and the rear two wheels will not stay engaged. It needs a lock or something to keep it in the travel position. Overall the vacuum has been working well sucking up pet hair and dust/dirt out of my carpet - much better than my DC7. The vacuum is a fail at picking up anything large especially if it's sitting on the surface of the carpet. I'd like to see a travel lock or something so I can move the vacuum on the rear two wheels instead of pushing it around in the ball position.

    Comments about Dyson Ball DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum:

    Not only did it exceed my expectations in terms of what it picked up, it made the carpet feel young again! The first time I used it I filled the canister. Seriously could not believe in what came up in one room. The rug though felt brand new-spongy and cushy again. Amazing product. Easy to assemble (can you really call it assembling when it's a couple of clicks?). Easy, of course, to maneuver. Can I give it 10 stars?

    Plastic Fantastic

    By BentJay

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Dyson Ball DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum:

    OK, so this thing is a hunk of plastic and, being old school I'd rather there be lots of metal. OTOH, our first Dyson lasted 8 years (and I sold it with a burned out motor for $50 on Craigslist,) so I'm open to 'new' technology. The vacuum works well and the attachments are an improvement on our first Dyson. I'm satisfied...if it lasts another 8 years!

    Really like how easy it is to maneuver. Much easier on my back than my old vacuum was. Does a great job on getting up the cat hair and the attachments are really nice. The extension wand make cleaning stair much easier. I would highly recommend this Dyson.

    Comments about Dyson Ball DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum:

    Our old dyson upright had a problem which was under extended warranty so they gave us an in store credit so went and purchased the DC65 Animal upright paid a bit more than the credit was worth but it was worth it. I have just used it for the first time and have to say it is better than my old one it is easy to use, we have dogs and the covers I use are usually hard to vacuum but with the little new turbo attachment it is so easy and light to use. I will never buy anything but dyson and highly recommend it

    The Vacuum That Changed My Life

    By cosmo322

    Comments about Dyson Ball DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum:

    This vacuum changed my life. We have an Old English Sheepdog and a longhaired cat and we live in a former riverbed, so pet hair and dust are a constant in our house. We purchased the Animal Complete a few months back and have been blown away by its performance - we never knew our house could be so clean! We are now a Dyson family for life.

    Comments about Dyson Ball DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum:

    I debated quite some time about which brand to buy. I read reviews on several websites. I saw several claims that compared their brand to Dyson. I finally decided to go all in and purchase the Dyson65 Animal Complete. It has exceeded my expectations. I couldn't believe the dirt that came out of my carpet! At the time of purchase, another customer offered this, "My wife and I have had ours for several years and we love it.". I'm thrilled with my purchase.

    Comments about Dyson Ball DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum:

    This vacuum picked up two canisters full of dirt only a couple days after using my previous vacuum. Showing how much my old vacuum left behind! My old vacuum had a Hepa Filter but bothered my allergies after using it and left a nasty pet odor behind! The Dyson only seemed to leave a clean smell and was much quieter than my previous vacuum. It was also enjoyable to use and seemed to float along the carpet cleaning it better than I expected. I have had no allergy symptoms and my carpet hasn't looked this clean since I had them professionally steam cleaned!
