Product Details

Dyson DC65 Animal Upright Vacuum - DC65ANIMAL

DC65 Animal is engineered for outstanding cleaning performance and ease of use. There's also a Tangle-free Turbine tool to remove dirt and hair from carpets and upholstery. With its self-adjusting cleaner head and re-engineered brushbar, bristles dig deeper into carpets to remove more dust and dirt, while providing superior performance on hard floors. The DC65 has been built to achieve the highest suction at the cleaner head, twice the suction as any other vacuum.¹ The DC65 has remodeled cyclones and uses the latest Ball™ technology.

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.
    • In Radial Root Cyclone™ technology remodeled airflows help remove more dirt, dust and allergens from the home.
  • 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.
  • Reconfigured brush bar
    • 25% more power drives bristles deeper into carpets removing more dirt.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • Soft dusting brush
    • The Dyson Soft dusting brush gently removes dust and allergens from flat surfaces, delicate areas and upholstery. The fine nylon bristles are angled at 45° to sweep dust into the airflow, where it is sucked away. The front bristles are wider spaced to prevent sticking to furniture. A felt strip down the middle of the brush helps protect polished and delicate surfaces from scratching.

  • Patented cyclone technology: Radial Root Cyclone™ technology

My house is a melting pot of flooring. I have laminate wood flooring in the majority of the house, tile in one bathroom, granite floor in another bathroom, carpet in the office and guest bedroom, vinyl tile in the kitchen, and wood flooring in the formal dining room. I have a huge area rug in the living room and two runners in the hallway. I have popcorn ceilings! What a pain to clean. I have several 4-legged children (kitties) and kitty hair is a constant battle. The kids are indoor only and shed year-around. The toughest mess to clean though, hands-down is LITTER! I use a natural biodegradable litter made from walnuts that is free of chemicals/toxins. It has virtually no dust but boy does it track everywhere. There is no smell which is a huge plus in my book. The only negative is the tracking.....this is where my Dyson comes in handy. I am already a Dyson owner. I own the DC07 (upright) and DC31 (handheld) and had the privilege of trying out the DC65. To test the DC65 and the fame to claim of twice the suction, I vacuumed first the carpet with the DC07. Then I put the DC65 to work on the SAME carpet floors to see if there was an actual difference in what it picked up. Ooooweee, was there a difference! I was shocked and grossed out at the same time. The amount of dirt it picked up was outstanding. I was immediately impressed with the results. Also, the DC65 rides on a ball whereas my old upright does not. This took some getting use to as my old vacuum is much heavier and you have to literally jerk it around corners and furniture. After several uses, I actually found the ball cut down on the overall time spent on vacuuming because of the ease of use. As I mentioned, I have several flooring types and going from one room to another was a breeze as it transitions well on all floors. In order to stop the brush bar from turning on the hard floors, you simply hit a button. (A nice feature). My old machine required me to have to bend down to turn it off. The vacuum was excellent on picking up dirt, hair, and litter on hard surfaces like granite, vinyl, tile, laminate, and hardwood floors. It did not push the dirt/hair/litter away but sucked it up. In fact, when I ran it by the baseboards, it sucked dirt out from behind the baseboards and places that a broom cannot reach. The vacuum came with a turbine tool which is awesome! OMG! Every household should have this. Testing this tool was fun as I made one pass down my fabric ottoman and could "see" the difference in dirt and kitty hair that was removed by just one pass. No more having to use a sticky lint roller brush to try to get the hair off which as we all know, does not do the best job. The turbine tool does it for you and quick!!!! Perfect for stairs and areas that are too small for the vacuum brush bar to reach. Also, because the tool is tangle free, if hair does end up in the bristles, it is easily removed with one pull. The tool is so awesome that I loaned it to my neighbor to try on her sofa. She could not believe the results and said, "I have to have one!!!!!" The vacuum also came with a soft dusting brush. I was just about to toss a cream lamp shade because it was so difficult to clean and thought I would give it a shot with the dusting brush. Again, outstanding tool. The shade is now clean and I didn't have to throw it away. I also used it on my popcorn ceilings and it did an excellent job at getting those hard to reach cobwebs. The see-through bin that holds the dirt is a good size and I was able to clean my entire house before dumping it. The release trigger is simple, easy to use, and allows only one hand to operate. The brush bar is also see-through and runs the entire length. This is important as it allows you to clean the entire surface. The brush bar cover is plastic and although you would think it would scratch your baseboards, it did not. I was concerned with the shaggy area rug being pulled and tangled with the vacuum but it never did and looks good as new. The highly dense carpeted runners also look amazing after using the vacuum on them. The cord is heavy duty yet easy to loop on the machine and store. When you want to use the vacuum, you simply pull the handle towards you and it releases the latch. No more stepping on the vacuum front or stepping on a lever to release it. Genius!!!! When you are done, simply push the handle towards the machine and it locks it in place for storage. Fabulous! Hands-down, the machine did an absolute splendid job at cleaning. If you are a Dyson owner, you will be happy with the results as it is an upgrade. If you are not a Dyson owner, you will be so grossed out with what it picks up and upset with yourself that you did not purchase sooner. There are a few things I would like to see added on Dyson vacuums in the future: 1) I would like a led light near the brush bar so that I can see areas where I am vacuuming that are not easily exposed to light (closets, underneath furniture, etc.); 2) I would like a led light on the release hose that I can turn on for when I use the tools for cleaning the ceilings or again in hard to reach areas like underneath appliances/furniture; 3) Instead of having to turn the machine on and then hitting the button to turn off the bristles for cleaning hard surfaces, I would like to be able to turn the brush bar off PRIOR to starting the machine; 4) Retrofit the turbine tool and dusting brush to store onto the machine. I cannot use the tools without the machine so why not keep them stored with it?; 5) since the turbine tool is so excellent at picking up hair and dirt and it is tangle free, why not create the brush bar the same way? No tangles of hair and easy to clean!!!!! Dyson keep up the great work. You have a customer for life.

We purchased the DC65 this past April. This was our second Dyson vacuum purchase. Our first Dyson Animal performed well and lasted for about 10 yrs. Unfortunately, based on our experience so far I rate the new DC65 Animal two stars. Positives: The vacuum performs best on low shag carpet and hard surfaces. No bags to deal with and simple to keep most parts and filters clean (exception being the beater bar). Negatives: The electric cord is more stiff and tangles more easily. By far the beater bar assembly is the biggest negative. The two piece design of the beater bar tangles hair very easily and needs constant cleaning. Not easy to clean either since the two pieces have confined spaces for hair to gather and bind. IMO, Dyson research should reconsider the one piece beater bar assembly. Height for the beater bar assembly is self adjusting, but that can be a problem for many types of carpet. Any carpet above a low shag causes the beater motor to burn and smell. You can turn off the beater bar, but it's not as effective at hair and dirt removal. The vacuum is more difficult to push with the beater bar off as well. The vacuum is marketed for it's versatility in all kinds of situations. However, it simply falls short in our situation due to the new beater bar design.

Excellent vacuum

By 

from Undisclosed

I bought this a few years ago and it has been nothing but great for me to use. I expect nothing less from Dyson than excellence as I have an older one that is used for my basement. This version of the Animal gets all the dog had and dander as well as the long hair of my wife and daughters. All the attachments are great and easy to get any clogs that rarely occur.

medium quality vac cleaner

By 

from Undisclosed

Loses efficiency after about 1 year. Sent it in for quality check a couple of times. Great customer service on that but not on the end of the rep at the vac place. Nothing changed. Overprice for what it is.

An absolute WORKHORSE!!!

By 

from Undisclosed

Webster's dictionary defines 'workhorse' as "a dependable machine or vehicle that is used to do a lot of work", "something that is markedly useful, durable, or dependable". An added synonym should be this vacuum!!!

DC65 Animal Complete

By 

from Undisclosed

This machine is GREAT!! I had a smaller version of the animal vacuum and gave that to my step-son, and purchased the DC65 Animal Complete. The only problem I have after using the smaller machine is that the DC 65 is heavier and a little more difficult to operate. It is just heavier. I'd use it everyday, but I am a Disabled Combat Vietnam Veteran who was blown up with a grenade and shot in the head, so it can be at times difficult to operate the machine. So I ordered the SV09 Absolute so I can do smaller areas without so much effort. but I will continue to use the DC-65 for major cleaning.

Wonderful vacuum

By 

from Undisclosed

I waited a year before putting in a review to put this vacuum through its paces and it gets every particle and spect of dust. If it's true most dust is human skin, then the fine powder that ends up in the bin means I need to get better lotions for my family. I no longer use a dust cloth, I use the soft brush to dust attached to the extendable hose. The machine moves so easily and turns like a charm. It comes with a canvas holder for the attachments that hangs up, which keeps everything quick to get to. The only issue I have is with the hose. It doesn't stay extended when in use and wants to compact back to a tube. It's quite strong and I constantly struggle to keep it extended for use. I'd love to buy the canister but am afraid the hose on it would be the same. Other then the hose, I highly recommend this upright. Amazing machine!

hair in the little wheels on the head

By 

from Undisclosed

I have one dog, a long haired German Shepherd. The little wheels on the head get clogged with dog hair and stop rolling in just 2 months. This makes the unit very hard to push. A serious issue, I take of the head every two months and get out my utility knife and small needle nose pliers and cut and pull the hair out until the wheels are free once again. Unfortunately, must be done every 2 months. Imagine if I had 2 or 3 dogs. Everything else on this Dyson is good, yes the commercials are true, it is a high quality vacuum that has the worlds best suction. I am offering to be a testing site for Dyson for the DC65 Animal or any animal type vacuum. I vacuum 3-4 times a week to keep up with the pet hair as a long haired German Shepherd does shed a lot of hair. Dyson is sending me 2 new replacement heads at no charge as we speak, Dyson stands behind their products, what more could anyone ask for? Go Dyson.

A worthwhile investment

By 

from Undisclosed

Our dog of choice is the collie. These family friendly Lassie look-a-likes are wonderful except their long hair about our lair. Over the years, we have tried the latest and greatest, but they seldom lasted beyond a year. So we decided to invest in the Animal Complete. It was more than what we spent in the past, but hoped that it would pay off over the long term. And it has! It has lasted beyond every other vacuum that we have purchased and its performance has not diminished since it first arrived. The transition from carpet to wood floors is seamless. Using the attachments may be different at first because of how the machine is engineered, but all are very useful and come with a convenient organizer that you can hang in your closet. If you have wood floors, walk around barefooted after you have used a Dyson. It's a truly amazing feel of cleanliness.

Great but LOUD

By 

from Undisclosed

The vacuum is great, but is louder than we had anticipated, hence the lower score. When I use the stick or attachments, I need to use ear plugs.

A must for pets!

By 

from Undisclosed

We have a golden retriever and this vacuum is a must for pets! We absolutely love the tangle free turbine tool! It never tangles and gets ALL the dog hair off of sofas. We also use it and is perfect for car upholstery! Completely satisfied with our dyson! Yes many of the parts are hard plastic, but it is still very durable and the suction just doesn't compare! You have to see for yourself, it's worth the price!

Love My Dyson

By 

from Undisclosed

Love this vacuum, first time i used it i was completely disgusted at how much dirt was in my carpet and couch! Very easy to empty container, light weight, easy to turn on carpet, hard surfaces not so much but i didn't purchase for hard floors so that doesn't bother me.
