Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum - 206031-01

Dust has met its match with the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum – CINETICBIGBALLANIMAL. The ultra strong Dyson Cinetic has been designed by Dyson's scientists to oscillate 350 times every second giving you ultimate suction power. The Big Ball Animal is equipped with Dyson's hygienic emptying bin that lets you throw away contents without using your hands. This Dyson upright vacuum includes Ball™ technology that lets you pivot on the spot makes this upright vacuum the best available. Allergy and Asthma sufferers will be thankful for the Dyson Animal's washable filter that captures microscopic pollen and mold particles. Keep your home clean with the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum.

Features:

  • Dyson Cinetic™ science
    Dyson Cinetic™ science has revolutionized vacuum cleaner technology – it captures the microscopic dust that clogs others. Dyson Cinetic™ science generates centrifugal forces of up to 313,000G flinging particles as small as pollen and mold spores from the air and into the bin. Each of the 35 Dyson Cinetic™ tips oscillate 350 times every second, preventing dust building up and blocking the airflow. Dust separation is so efficient there's no need for a pre-motor filter, so it doesn't lose suction
  • No dirty filters to wash or replace
    The only vacuum with no filters to wash or replace, so there's no clogging and no loss of suction
  • Self-adjusting cleaner head
    An active base plate automatically adjusts the cleaner head height to seal in suction across all floor types. This ensures that even the microscopic particles between floorboards are sucked up into the vacuum. The motorised brush bar with stiff nylon bristles drives deep into carpet to remove ground-in dirt
  • Ball™ technology
    Fixed wheels are not designed to turn corners. But a ball can turn on the spot. As the ball's axis is tilted, its turning circle tightens – allowing full and accurate steering control. The vacuum's key components have been engineered to fit inside the ball itself. This gives the machine a streamlined profile, allowing access to tight spaces and lowering its centre of gravity to make it lighter in the hand
  • Asthma & Allergy friendly™
    Ideal for allergy sufferers. Lifetime washable filter captures microscopic allergens as small as pollen and mold. The Dyson Cinetic™ Big Ball Animal is certified asthma & allergy friendly™ by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America
  • Designed for homes with pets
    The Tangle-free Turbine tool is the only turbine tool that doesn't tangle. Counter-rotating heads with brushes remove hair from carpets and upholstery, so there's no brush bar for hair to wrap around. The flexible heads bend to maintain contact across uneven surfaces, and they're positioned so that the brushes reach to the front and sides of the tool – drawing hair and dirt in from all directions. More hair is released straight into the bin than with any other mini turbine tool
  • Hygienic bin emptying
    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)

I purchased the Cinetic Big Ball Animal about a month and a half ago as a replacement for my DC-14 that I purchased in 2006. I constantly raved about the DC-14 and it's still going strong, but I wanted a second vacuum for another level in my home. I was still expecting to absolutely love the Big Ball Animal despite the not-so-stellar reviews I had read. I thought maybe the reviewers had simply not owned a Dyson before, given some of their issues. I thought the assembly of the machine was qucik and easy. The power of the machine is what you have come to expect from Dyson. The weight of the machine is a bit much for 63 year old woman, but ok so far. Now for the features that have me scratching my head a bit as far as design/ergonomics... First, the collection bin is smaller than on my DC-14. I have five cats in my home and the smaller circumference of the new model makes the bin fill faster over the same area I used to vacuum with my DC-14. If I vacuum the same area as with my old machine, I definitely have to physically pull the debris from the bin and sometimes detach the the bin from the handled top in order to remove the debris. Inside the bin there are plastic protrusions (for stability?) that catch the cat hair and, it seems, prevents the debris from just falling out of the bin. I could try to empty more often and see if that helps the debris fall out on its own, but it seems a step backward in convenience. Not sure why the bin had to be smaller on this model, but I'm not an engineer. Second, the machine is a bit heavy to maneuver easily. I thought the Big Ball was going to help, but I find I'm torquing my wrist in odd ways trying to get the machine to go where I want it to. Maybe I don't have the hang of it yet or maybe it's the weight of the machine and a stronger person wouldn't have an issue. For me, the action of vacuuming is somewhat awkward and uncontrolled. I admit to having a carpal tunnel issue in my right wrist, so perhaps that contributes. Third, I don't really have the issue with getting the machine to stand upright that others have complained about. However, it is not easy to roll the machine on the two back wheels without the brush part of the base falling into place as if you were vacuuming. The rollers seem too small for the job somehow, or the latching mechanism not sufficient. I've oftentimes ended up just carrying the machine back to its closet which is not ideal. Fourth, not sure if you're like me, but I usually grab the cord of the machine in my left hand while vacuuming to keep the cord out of the way. It's a minor complaint, but the cord is so far down the shaft, it is not easily reached. Perhaps I shouldn't complain about the extra "exercise," but I am looking for a way to keep the cord attached at the top hook for cord storage. I'm hopeful my issues with the Cinetic Big Ball Animal will fade over time as I adjust to its features. I certainly have no issues with its cleaning power. That's awesome. However, right now, I do feel it takes me longer to do the job than it did previously, and is a bit tougher to accomplish, physically. I am very brand loyal and I didn't even consider another brand when buying this new vacuum, just trusting that Dyson continued its reputation for innovation and convenience. I wish I could say I am not disappointed, but I can't. There's more points to consider in purchasing a machine than just its suction power. Maybe in a few more months, my issues will be moot points. Her's hoping.

We bought this to replace our old Dyson, which finally broke beyond repair. We were very impressed to find that this one cleans even better than the old one! It is quite easy to maneuver, though the handle doesn't like to stay locked in the upright position. We also really like the longer cord. We do have a couple of issues with it though. It gets very hot - it blows hot air onto out legs and feet while we are using it, which is very uncomfortable! We are not looking forward to that during the summer! We also find that the handheld hose is very awkward to use - the hose doesn't stretch out well, so the vacuum is constantly being pulled back into us when we are vacuuming the couch, stairs etc. We also find that the handheld hose wand is very short, which makes using the hard floor tool very awkward - it doesn't feel like it's very well thought out. I expected it to be better given the high price point, and the fact that Dyson has been around for so long now.

Cleans well

By 

from Undisclosed

I upgraded to this from an older Dyson that failed, but was still covered under the 5 year warranty. This vacuum is far easier to move and turn. It does a nice job riding walls for tight vacuuming. It does tend to grab loose carpeting more than the old unit probably because the brush and suction are better. My biggest knock is the release mechanism design. You tip the unit back slightly and push down on the handle to vacuum, its very efficient. The issue is that it is virtually impossible to roll the unit forward to another location without disengaging the upright locking mechanism. I'm surprised Dyson did not put a secondary locking device on it. That is the reason I could not give it 5 stars

Strong vacuum

By 

from Undisclosed

I bought this vacuum a few weeks ago and I am more than pleased with my purchase. I had another brand vacuume that claimed that it was better than a Dyson .....just not true! I have two long haired dogs that I love �� but create a lot of work Due to shedding . I vacuume everyday but the other vacuum just could not pick up all the strands of hair from my living room carpet. The day I received my Dyson I revacumed my carpet and the Dyson picked up so much dust and hair that I did not even realize that was still there! Love �� my Dyson! Tina

Best vacuum ever. 2 large flurry dogs and 6 cats can't kill it. Our old vacuum, supposedly a pet fur specialty vacation can't touch it for getting dirt and fur up out of the carpet.

Excellent Suction!

By 

from Undisclosed

We purchased our Dyson a couple weeks ago (my first Dyson), and I couldn't be happier. It has fantastic suction. We even gave it "the test" by vacuuming our sun room, which seems to always be covered with dog hair and has thus turned into more of a mud room because we could never get the black carpet free of dog hair. This vacuum sucked up EVERYTHING! I love it. We've tried at least two different vacuums in this room before this, and it always looked like we never actually did anything when we were done. This is the first to grab everything. I find myself vacuuming more often than needed just because I like just how well it actually works. Very easy to empty. I am not disappointed at all. Great buy!

My First Dyson Gets an A-

By 

from Undisclosed

I requested my Dyson Animal for Christmas and got it! I had gone through 2 other animal vacuum cleaners by another company, so I was looking for a quality product that I won't have to replace every year. I began using my Dyson Animal on Christmas Day and was super pleased with the performance! The suction is fantastic (it made me look like I had not vacuumed in years). It glides easily and I love the rolling ball. I use my Dyson every day (I have a Labrador that sheds a lot) and I love my Dyson! I love that it fluffs up my carpets, making them look new! (I had been using a carpet rake to fluff my carpets after vacuuming with my other machine, and I have not had to rake the carpets since Christmas Day when I received my Dyson)! My husband tells me, "You love that vacuum cleaner"! Now to what pains me about my Dyson Animal: 1. It is heavy, so taking it up and down my stairs is difficult. 2. Vacuuming stairs with the attachment is not easy, even with the hose extension. 3. The canister fills up VERY quickly, requiring me to stop every few minutes to empty it. 4. The canister does not completely empty on its own, so I still have to reach in to pull dog hair out = meaning this is not hands-free emptying. 5. My roller keeps getting clogged with dog hair and carpet fibers, which reduces the brush spinning action. 6. Turning the brush feature off has not done a good job of vacuuming runners/rugs. It still sucks them up and I have to turn the vacuum off. Overall, this is a fantastic vacuum cleaner. I give it an A-, due to the 6 pains about this product. Fix those and I'd give this an A+!

Best Dyson yet!

By 

from Undisclosed

This baby is powerful. I was skeptical at first. I previously owned the dc25 animal ball and if you compare the two it appears that the dc25 would have more suction capabilities, but that is not the case this machine is much more powerful and better constructed! The new technology works different than than the old and because there are no filters there is no suction loss to account for. I use both machines and the cinetic out proforms the dc25 in every way! The front head is also designed better and does not catch as much hair in the beater bar. It has a firmer suction to the carpet than the dc25... bottom line if you are comparing any of the other machines to this one do not hesitate buy the cinetic big ball you won't be sorry!

problem engaging the back wheels to move the unit

from Undisclosed

I just bought my unit and so far only have had one problem. It seems difficult to raise the arm so the back wheels lock down in order to move the unit around. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks,
