Overview: The Dyson Ball Animal 2 is a powerful upright vacuum cleaner
with the strongest suction of any vacuum (ASTM F558, tested at the cleaner head,
dust-loaded against the upright market). It has a self-adjusting cleaner head,
and comes with an instant-release wand, long extension hose,
and a tangle-free turbine tool. The Animal 2 weighs 17.35 pounds and has a long
35-foot power cord.
Radial Root Cyclone Technology: The Dyson Ball Animal 2 uses Dyson's
patented cyclone technology in which powerful centrifugal forces spin dust and
dirt out of the air and into the bin. A total of 15 cyclones, arranged across
two tiers, work in parallel to increase airflow and capture fine dust.
Dirt Bin: The unit has a large capacity (0.55 gallons) clear
dirt bin that is detachable from the vacuum for easy cleaning. When the bin gets
full, simply remove it from the vacuum and press the button to release the
bottom door. There are no bags to change, and you never have to touch the dirt.
Washable Filter: The Animal 2 has a washable lifetime
filter. It is recommended that the filter be washed with cold water at least
once a month. It should be allowed to completely dry over a 24 hour period
Self-adjusting Cleaner Head: The unit features a 13-3/8"
wide base plate/floor brush assembly. The self-adjusting cleaner head
automatically raises and lowers to maintain a maximum seal for optimum suction
across all floors without having to adjust from hardwood and tile to carpet. The
powerful motorized brush bar is approximately 12" wide, and deep cleans your
carpets. You can easily switch off the motorized brush bar whenever you are on
Extension Hose and Instant-release Wand: For cleaning
surfaces above the floor, you can use the attached extension hose and
instant-release wand. When you set the vacuum in the upright position, the
suction automatically transfers to the long-reach extension hose, which can
easily reach 15 feet. You can use the included Turbine Tool, Combination Tool,
or Stair Tool directly with the hose, or attach them to the instant-release wand
for extra reach and control.
Turbine Tool: The tangle-free Turbine Tool has two rotating
brushes that spin in opposite directions to pull in pet hair and dirt from
carpets and upholstery without tangling.
Stair Tool: The non-powered Stair Tool can be used for
stairs, as well as other hard-to-reach places where the floor brush can't reach.
Combination Tool: The non-powered Combination Tool
is ideal for quick cleanups. It has a 2" x 1" nozzle for reaching
into narrow crevices. For other jobs, there are long bristles you
can slide and lock into place when needed. The nozzle and bristles are at a
45° angle for better coverage. This tool works well for cleaning up high.
