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.

    The best vacuum cleaner

    By dysonhunt

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Dyson DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner:

    This by far the best vacuum cleaner I have had. The suction is incredible and it leave lines in my Berber carpet. I live for the vacuum lines!! Dyson 41 is easy to handle and carry. I love the stretch tube for cleaning the stairs and ceiling. This dyson is well worth the money.

    Nice Machine

    By SnoDogs

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Dyson DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner:

    This is my second Dyson Animal Vaccuum. I have 2 siberian huskies and a lot of fur in my home, so I need a vaccuum that can do the trick. The new Dyson DC41 Animal was a bit hard to get used to at first, but once you figure out how to maneuver with the ball, it becomes easy. The suction of this Animal compared to my old version doesn't seem to be quite as strong, and you really have to force it to stand up by itself...otherwise, it wants to fall over. I like the ball on the Dyson because unlike the previous version there is nothing that can damage and rip through fabric on your furniture when vacuuming next to chairs/sofas. This machine is a bit quieter than the previous version and still seems to do a good job removing dog hair; I also love the array of attachments, although I have to admit I haven't used all of them yet. Overall, even though the suction doesn't quite seem as good as my previous, and it is still quite pricey, I still really love the Dyson brand and am happy with my purchase. Having dealt with customer service at Dyson, I also know that they stand by their products and the 5 year warranty is comforting.

    Comments about Dyson DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner:

    it just amazes me how much I can love a vacuum. I love everything about it. The whole design is so intuitive and simple. it really is a joy to use. I have a mix of hardwood, area rugs, tile and carpeting in my home. the automatic height adjustment is perfect! I can just vacuum, I dont have to worry about switching height, or sucking up edges of area rugs, and don't get me started on all the dirt and animal hair this machine picks up. we have 3 cats a dog and a rabbit. we are very clean people, but me just tell you how much more dirt dysons pick up. I struggled with my old vacuum for years...it worked, but it was soooo heavy, used to fall over whenever I wanted to use the attachment hose...uggh. I now wonder why I waited so long to purchase a dyson. if you are contemplating buying one...just do it. is it worth the money? no question...yes yes yes...

    Dyson Animal

    By kittyLover

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Dyson DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner:

    Wow-is this a POWERFUL vacuum! So far, after having taken the "display model" that the store clerks used for years, I only have 2 tiny "not likes". #1, man is that hose hard to use-it's not very pliable and makes it hard to turn & twist to get into tight areas such as in my car beside the seats or deep into the the holes under couch cushions and it was also a tad difficult to figure out how to use. And #2 the attachment is a pretty flimsy meaning the small brush on the end of the wand. I expected a better brush to pick up animal hair and that thing is about useless. Overall, this is the 1st upright vacuum I have ever owned and I love the power but miss my canister.

    DC41 Animal

    By TheRetiredGolfer

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Dyson DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner:

    My wife and I received a lot of mixed recommendations from our friends and family. All the way from excellent to poor. We took a chance and purchased the Dyson DC41 Animal when the store promised we could return the Dyson if we were not complete satisfied. I am please to say the DC41 is the best vacuum cleaner we have ever owned. I didn't realize how dusty my house was until the DC41 collected dust and dust balls in volumes. Navigating the DC41 is smooth. Emptying the canister is a snap. The price is higher than other brands but it is well worth the cost and I will never need to buy a vacuum cleaner bag again.

      Best of the 4 we've owned

      By Tony94

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Dyson DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner:

      We have owned 4 Dyson machines. This is the best so far. One was a canister in Europe, the rest have been US models. We have passed the others on to our kids who also love them. The only thing we miss is the crevice tool with the brush on the end which is great for cleaning furnace filters. I guess we'll have to go and find that item somewhere. After seeing them work, we have had several neighbors go out and buy Dysons.

      I have had my new Dyson ...

      By EmmaE02

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Dyson DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner:

      I have had my new Dyson DC41 for about three weeks. I do not have any pets but, the new place we just moved into is all carpet and it get's very musty and dusty inside, making it hard to breathe so I thought that getting something with a little more suction would be worth a try. The DC41 Animal, works amazingly. On the DAILY it pulls up so much dust and Lint that I am so amazed every time I vacuum my house. The hose has just as great suction and it stretches pretty far. I will never buy anything but a Dyson from here on out.

      Good product/terrible website instructions

      By SoCal

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Dyson DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner:

      No complaints, only praise for the product itself DC Animal 41. It moves well (if you ride a bike or motorcycle you can handle this), cleans amazingly close to the edge of a wall, the head is low and vacuums under the edge of furniture nicely, fantastic suction, not too heavy though not exactly light weight (smaller ones are). The container is easily emptied and mine came with all sorts of attachments.....with no explanation as to what they are for and there are no real instructions to this thing. A couple of diagrams on how to put it together, but no words, that's it. I always feel like I'm breaking it when I put it in position to vacuum. Instructional video sent by Dyson via their website didn't work (along with not allowing me to register the vacuum, saying the number was ID # was wrong on the box) , pictures didn't answer questions regarding all the attachments. It would be nice if they just included a manual since I've now had difficulty with their website twice.
