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.

Great at vacuuming, with some annoying caveats

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 NEgal'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! When Dyson states that this machine "...  see moreof lennonjc's review

      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 Fsv10'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 FlexinTime's review

          This is the worst vacuum I’ve ever purchased. It is made of cheap plastic that wraps over time. I’ve busted the canister twice and was sent replacements. Now it is squealing, impossible to maneuver and has lost suction. I talked to a dyson and they expect me to take it to a repair shop even though i...  see moreof nikrev's review

            This vacuum has so many issues with it. I loved my previous Dyson so when we needed a new vacuum I chose to get another Dyson. We have been using this vacuum for about 4 months now. First off the suction may be too strong and has ruined 3 entrance rugs so far. The entrance rugs were not the best qu...  see moreof beafont's review

                I have always wanted a Dyson but could never justify the expense, then I got the animal2 for Christmas this year and I have to tell you I have had a lot of vacuums over the years and nothing comes remotely close to this vacuum. It is by far the most powerful vacuum I have ever seen.It is worth every...  see moreof Thomas000's review
