submitted by RR - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi there, this is Kelly with Dyson. Ball Animal 3 does have a spinning brush bar, but you can disable that to vacuum with just suction power on your machine. You may wish to check with your flooring manufacturer prior to using any machine, to see if they have any specific guidelines regarding vacuum usage. Best wishes, Kelly Dyson Customer Support

I've had this machine for several months and it works much better than the previous Dyson Animal machines. The only problem is no matter how high you adjust the brushes, the brush head falls off and is very hard to put back on. Don't buy if you have a thick rug!

I love this vacuum. I read the reviews before I purchased, which almost deterred me. The suction is better than the previous model and it is a little heavier, which made it a little more work to maneuver but a fair trade to get the cat hair, dander and dust out of my carpets.

I’ve had this vacuum for over a year now. It is the worst vacuum I’ve ever owned. The vacuum gets clogged easily and the hose is so difficult to clean. It’s very heavy and doesn’t work well on stairs. The wand doesn’t get great suction. I’ve had way cheaper vacuums that worked better than this.

I was excited to replace my old Dyson Animal that I have had for about 13 years. It still works fine, but the latch to keep it upright broke along with a few other issues, nothing major. I bought the new Dyson Ball Animal 3 and I relegated the old one to use in the basement. I have used the new one for 5 to 6 weeks now. The first issue was the difficulty pushing it. The suction is great but is too much for ease of movement. Do not buy if you have lower back issues like sciatica. I have to say it has gotten slightly easier the more I vacuum. I just finished doing the stairs and am very disappointed with the struggle. The hose is not flexible at all. It is too tight and works against you. There is no stability. I suppose you could have someone hold the vacuum in place while you vacuum. It should not take 2 people to clean the staircase. The cord length is awesome but it should start at the top (a hook or clip) for ease of use. It is great on bare floors. It works very well as far as dirt collection on carpets, however, it is extremely hard to push no matter which setting I use. I feel very bad about recommending this to my daughter who has been fighting several forms of cancer for 5 years. We are both stuck with vacuums that make us want to scream.

Where to begin... as a previous Dyson vacuum fan, this vacuum caught me off guard. the brand always seemed focused on user design, ease of use. This brick is unnecessarily heavy to lift as well as push on carpet. The user manual for assembly was REALLY poorly done. yes, it has good suction but not worth the clunky design and weight. 👎👎

Best Cleaning / Worst Durability

3 out of 5 stars
Cjosmom - 1 year ago
originally posted on Dyson
This was my second Dyson. My first one lasted 10 years! This one has lasted less than one year. The suction and cleaning power is second to none. Pulled out the deepest of dirt and pet hair. The design was cumbersome and the cheap plastic was a constant source of concern, but I was willing to overlook that for the cleaning power. The real disappointment came last week when, less than a year after I bought it, the roller brush stopped working. After some internet research and repair video watching we have determined that there is a switch that has failed somewhere and will need to be replaced. There are no repair facilities in my state, nor in the surrounding states, so I now have a hunk of cheap plastic trash. So disappointing. I won't buy another one at these prices.

First, thank you Dyson for recyclable cardboard packaging. No styrofoam! Coming from a ~2012 DC14, I was concerned about review references to cheap plastics. Yes, the plastics are different, lighter, than the DC14. I do not feel like it will start crackling & breaking. Time will tell! This Animal 3 is like a "scale model" of the DC14. Thru & thru, it is about 80% of the size. For me, great. My small home likes this. The maneuverability of the ball is great, and the smaller main head gets under cabinet overhangs and kitchen chairs, where the DC14 was always "a smidge too big". But if your home is large, Animal 3 may feel like going from a push broom to a toothbrush. Performance. I needed the tangle free hair function. Was skeptical, "too good to be true?". OH NO! IT'S TRUE! I have long hair and a medical condition causing hair loss. My Animal picked up bin after bin of hair, and NOTHING left in the beater brush. Folks mentioning it being too heavy & cumbersome, perhaps they need a lighter cordless model. I fully expected what I got in an upright corded machine - heavy duty! Not a dusting job. Dyson - we old-schoolers like it. Other reviews mention the machine suctioning to their floors. I did not experience this on my tile, aging pile carpet, or large dense weave area rugs. That said Dyson's many feedback comments suggesting folks need to contact their carpet manufactures about this problem... disturbing. If my car's tires perform poorly on pavement, suggesting I contact the pavement manufacturer would be silly. Do you get that analogy? Ease of transforming modes. This Animal is clunky by comparison. The DC14, about 10 seconds, three motions, from upright to attachment & tube mode. This Animal takes more wrangling of slide this, click that, push here. The on-board attachments are no longer integrated. They fit more like an "oh yeah, we forgot" goiter, and mine is wiggly. Lacks the solid "built this way" of the DC14. Minus 1-star there. Overall, yes, I recommend this. Yes, hair-free is true.

I was always hesitant on spending this much on a vacuum but after trying out the Dyson Animal 3 I am so glad I invested in it. Our old Shark vacuum would overheat from dust and husky fur but this Dyson handles it with ease. The Dyson gets as much fur and dust out of the carpet in one room as our Shark would in the entire downstairs area of our house. I’m very impressed!

We have a black lab, and I always vacuum the carpet before I use our carpet cleaner! Every time I clean out the carpet cleaner it's partly full of black lab hair! This tells me the Dyson isn't doing it job very well! I believe its the new anti-tangle brush because our previous Dyson worked better!

Hi there, this is Kelly with Dyson. Thank you for sharing your review here. We're sorry to hear that you've encountered some suction or pick-up issues with your Ball Animal 3. That's uncommon to hear; Ball Animal 3 offers 290 air watts of strong suction power, and these models were also engineered to be effective in homes with pets. It's disappointing to know that we seem to have fallen short here. Your Anti-tangle Motorbar cleaner head does have suction control. The three levels of suction are controlled by the slider on the front of the cleaner head, and you can slide that suction control to suit the floor type or debris you're picking up. If you do find that pet hair is getting left behind, you can position the slider to the left, center or right, depending on your needs. If you'd like further support for your machine, or have any other questions/concerns we can help with, you can get in touch with me directly at askdysonUS@dyson.com. Best wishes, Kelly Dyson Customer Support
