about this item

The Dyson Ball Animal 2 has the strongest suction of any vacuum**. With even more power for tough tasks.

No other vacuum has stronger suction at the cleaner head than the Ball Animal 2. It handles tough tasks easily, making it ideal for parents and pet-owners.

The Ball Animal 2 has an advanced self-adjusting cleaner head that automatically adjusts between carpets and hard floors – sealing in suction across all floors to tackle your toughest tasks.

Its wand and hose release in one smooth action to make it easier to clean up high and under furniture.

With hygienic bin emptying, there’s no need to get your hands dirty – just push the button to release the dirt. Whole-machine HEPA filtration ensures that allergens and bacteria are trapped inside the machine, not expelled back into the home.

The Dyson Ball Animal 2 vacuum comes with the Tangle-free Turbine tool, which removes hair from carpets and upholstery without tangling.

Dyson’s free 5 year warranty covers parts and labor, plus free shipping there and back.


**Suction tested to ASTM F558 at the cleaner head, dust-loaded, against upright market.

Pros: - Unbelievable suction. Seriously, after the first use it was disgusting to see how much dirt/dust my old vacuum had missed! - Great at picking up dog hair (I have a golden retriever who should be bald based on how much he sheds). - For the most part, easy to maneuver. Turns well. - Carpet/har...see moreof the reviewer's review

This vacuum blows this any vacuum out of the water (or carpets, rather). I've owned a Hoover vacuum that I've thoroughly enjoyed for the past eight years or so, but I bit the bullet and snagged this Dyson Ball Animal 2 machine on Black Friday. I'm so glad I did!

I converted to Dyson and will never go back. Yes the cost is hefty but once you use it you’ll understand how the cheaper vaccuum cleaners were mediocre and why they cost what they do. I’ve heard of people referring to Dyson as the apple of vacuum cleaners. I’m not sure if they’ve own one. This will ...see moreof the reviewer's review

Great on carpets. I read all the negative reviews and was a little concerned when I made the purchase. Especially since most of the negative reviews stated it worked great in hard floors but not carpets. The machine didn’t seem the best when I put it together. It is different than the standard $60 v...see moreof the reviewer's review

Works amazing on carpet but not so great on hard floors. It says not to use the brushes on hard floors but it doesn’t pick anything up without it spinning. Overall great vacuum but not so great on hard floors.

This is my 6th Dyson and is, above all, my favorite! I clean for a living and I have to say, this sucker saves me a whole lot of time all around. The hard floor attachment is wonderful! In my opinion, this is a must have for pet owners!!see moreof the reviewer's review

We have a German Shepard and a new baby and our carpet always feels dirty....when I started the vacuum you can literally feel it clamp down on the carpet thanks to the suction power!
