Our take on the Dyson Cinetic™ Big Ball Animal

Every ordinary canister vacuum I've used has tipped over and forced me to stop cleaning to right it. The ball-shaped canister on the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal is easy to steer. And if it does tip, it just rolls right back up without interrupting cleaning tasks.

The Dyson Big Ball Animal's ball-shaped canister maneuvers easily through cleaning tasks.

Get on a "roll" with the Cinetic Big Ball

Every ordinary canister vacuum I've used has tipped over and forced me to stop cleaning to right it. The ball-shaped canister on the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal is easy to steer. And if it does tip, it just rolls right back up without interrupting cleaning tasks.

And boy, can it clean. Innovative two-tiered Radial™ cyclones capture microscopic particles and allergens so you can breathe easy. Revolutionary Cinetic cyclones capture dust without clogging, and there are no filters to be cleaned or replaced.

The easy, one-touch bin emptying mechanism lets you clear out the canister's contents without getting your hands dirty.

  • tangle-free turbine tool removes pet hair from furniture and upholstery
  • specially designed stair tool lets you give special attention to a high-traffic area

Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal (CY22) is a powerful canister vacuum cleaner with strong suction and extra tools. It features innovative Dyson Cinetic science that eliminates the need for a pre-motor filter due to its efficiency. The vacuum has a 65" flexible hose, a 25" wand (extendable to 40"), and a retractable 21.5-foot power cord to give the unit a total reach of nearly 35 feet. The unit weighs 17.64 pounds.

Big Ball Technology: The Cinetic Big Ball Animal is amazingly stable because of its Big Ball technology and low center of gravity. It easily maneuvers around corners and obstacles, and, unlike other canister vacuums, immediately rights itself when toppled.

Dyson Cinetic Science: The Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal uses Dyson's Cinetic Science that helps prevents the unit from losing suction over time. The Cinetic tips oscillate at up to 5000 Hz, creating powerful centrifugal forces that separate the microscopic dust particles. When dust particles aren't separated, they tend to clog up the pores and blocks the airflow, causing the vacuum to lose suction. The Cinetic Big Ball vacuum captures this microscopic dust in the bin instead of relying on filters, therefore there is no need for a pre-motor filter to replace or wash.

Dirt Bin: The unit has a large capacity (0.42 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.

Flexible Hose / Quick-release Wand: The Cinetic Big Ball Animal canister vacuum comes with a long, flexible hose and an extendable wand to give you extra reach. The Hose and Wand connect together via a unique articulating handle. The handle rotates in 3 directions allowing full 360° articulation, making it easier to aim the nozzle where you want. A Suction Release trigger turns off the suction so you can free the nozzle when it gets caught in a curtain, rug, or upholstery.

Included Tools: The Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal canister includes a wide variety of tools and attachments. The tools can attach to the hose or the wand for virtually any situation. The Quick Release Adapter allows you to use some older Dyson tools and attachments on this unit. The included tool holder allows you to store some of the tools onboard. The unit includes the following:

  • Carbon Fiber Turbine Head: The unit features a wide Carbon Fiber Turbine Head for efficient floor and carpet cleaning. The head is equipped with stiff nylon bristles to remove ground-in dirt from carpets. Carbon fiber filaments on the brush bar dissipate the static charge that holds dust to the floor, so the fine dust and allergens can be removed from hard floor surfaces. The Carbon Fiber Turbine Head's bristles cover the width of the head, providing edge-to-edge cleaning. The brush bar is removable for easy cleaning.
  • Tangle-Free 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. The brushes reach to the front and sides of the tool to pull in hair and dirt from all directions.
  • Stiff Bristle Brush: The Stiff Bristle brush helps remove pet hair and other dirt embedded deep into your carpets.
  • 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.
