This is our 4th Dyson product in 11 years (first was an Animal upright, a canister, and a small cordless handheld) and they've all had their advantages and minor problems. This Animal upright is the best all around vacuum thus far. It's light for an upright and very maneuverable once you get the feel. I've been using it for a year and have had only one problem where the gasket around the roller ball edges came loose. I believe this might be from making hard turns on our hardwood floors during the learning curve and it probably won't happen again. I called Dyson and they sent me 2 new roller balls immediately with no hassle (5 minute phone call). Before I purchased this model, I saw a review where someone received it and reported a "flimsy" feel. It has a feel in some maneuvers at the handle but I believe it's a weight saving design with no signs that it will break. It is very light-weight compared to my previous upright that we pretty much wore out. My previous upright Animal's canister clogged with fine dirt - they have much improved the canister in 10 years as this new one cleans right up when emptying (I use high pressure air occasionally to blow out the tunnels inside but you'll be ok if you don't have an air compressor in your garage, just tap it gently at the bottom with your hand and most fine dust build-ups will come out). The canister does not come apart for cleaning as the old one did and that's a great, time saving improvement. The machine runs effortlessly on every surface I have in my house. Dyson has much improved all the features over the 10 years between our uprights. The cord has been extended in length and its heavier. We have a large single story and I make one electrical socket change when I clean. The suction in all Dyson's and ease of use is what draws us to them. I watch and talk with other people about their vacuums. When I can, I try out other vacuums. There's still no other vacuum that does a better job. I see honest design and value in the Dyson products. I always recommend Dyson to anyone who's inquired and all have been happy with their choice. I talked about a canister that I bought - I still have it, but on the few occasions that my wife uses a vacuum she wants to use an upright ("happy wife - happy life").

The good: -Long cord that lessened the amount of times I had to replug to closer outlet -Automatic adjustment to different surfaces -Ability to turn off roller function Various tools The bad: -While it did well at picking up pet hair it performed rather poorly at other pet messes such as toy stuffing -I have mostly hard wood floors but when operating on the few very low pile rugs the rollers stopped working several times. -While it was nice to have easy access to the wand: a) not all of the tools have housing on the unit. This doesn't seem to big of a deal to most but to me it is. I don't like having to stop what I'm doing to go hunt something down. b) the hose which connects to the wand made using it awkward. Had to give several hard yanks at it each time I wished to use it. I was really excitied about this purchase and maybe it just needs some "run in" time but so far I can't say that it was worth the price or the hype

It works!

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

After hemming and hawing, I gave in to the bagless world of vacuums. With a black lab and long haired cat and living in a perpetually dusty environment, I finally decided on the Dyson. And I am over the moon happy! The super long cord is a bonus! Other than having to stop to empty the canister, i can get to all the nooks and crannies, on each level of my house without having to unplug the cord. At first I was concerned that the vacuum suction and weight would make it a bit difficult to maneuver, however after some practice, it became very easy to control. I am amazed at how well this Big Ball works and would happily recommend it to anyone even if you don't have pets!

I bought this vacuum a couple weeks ago. It is much more powerful than any other vacuum I have owned. I especially enjoy the automatic brush height, and the ability to turn off the brush for hard floor use.

Only a few things I don't like

By Beldnzr

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

This is my third Dyson Upright. I upgraded from a 41 Animal and there are many features that make me happy I made the change. It is noticeably quieter. The small animal brush head works much better with the spinning brushes, it does not stall out when working on upholstery crevices. The floor brush assembly is easier to take apart and clean. I like to disassemble the unit, wash the dust bin and clean the hair out of the brushes after 5-6 uses. The things I don't like are minimal but annoying. The space in the dust bin between the bin walls and the cyclone unit in the center is smaller and there are support fins at the bottom sidewalls of the bin, all this combines to make it harder for the dust and hair to empty out. I used to be able to open the trap door at the bottom and everything would drop out with a tap. Now I have to reach my hand up into the dust ball and pull it out. Also, after I pull the wand and hose out of the handle I have a very hard time getting it resettled into the red handle, I think the fins that hold the hose and wand are tighter so I have to fuss with it 4-5 times to get it settled into the handle again so I can go back to upright vacuuming. No critical faults just annoying. Overall I like the new model very much.

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

With 4 large dogs the battle to remove dog hair is constant, this vacuum is nothing short of amazing! The ease of switching from wood flooring, carpet and throw rugs is awesome. I love that it removes hair completely without lifting up a rug. I even used it to remove hair from the dog bed without a problem. I love the feature that stops the roller if it becomes tangled. Overall it is the best vacuum cleaner I have ever owned.

After 13 years of ...

By BFOR

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

After 13 years of grandchildren and three huge hairy dogs, my Dyson Animal finally started getting tired. Truthfully, it really didn't lose that much suction; the roller head was just getting worn out. I thought about just replacing the roller, but decided, after 13 years, I would go ahead and get a new vacuum cleaner. While I loved my Dyson, I did research other brands. I decided to stick with Dyson because of how good the first one was, how long it lasted and the consumer reviews. I've had my new Dyson animal for 3 days now, and can I just say...WOW! At first, I was a little disappointed because the head was a little smaller that my old one, but I love it. I can get under tables and into spaces I couldn't with the old one, the suction is amazing and I absolutely love the swivel head. The animal hair and dander this bad boy picked up was unbelievable. If you have animals and are considering a new vacuum cleaner, I strongly recommend the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal...you won't be disappointed!

STRONG Suction, But Some Weaknesses

By frankieboytoo

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

This machine has the strongest suction of any vacuum I've ever owned. It's very impressive. Also, it transitions very smoothly from hard flooring to carpet. And it is quieter than our Dyson Animal we bought 10 years ago as well. However, there are some issues I have with it. First off, the mechanism that holds the handle upright is weak. It usually disengages when trying to pull back and roll the machine forward on its back wheels, unless you are very gentle with it. Even then, when you start pushing forward it will disengage and the suction head will fall to the floor. Secondly, we have a very soft, plush carpet in one room that the machine will not handle. The roller brush bogs down and disengages when trying to vacuum it. Even with the roller brush disengaged it is nearly impossible to push the machine forward. I have to manually pick up the machine and pull it backwards with the roller brush off to vacuum this room. But the suction is so strong, it still does a good job cleaning even with the roller brush off. Another issue I have is that I don't like the detachable handle design on this model as well as I like the design on my old Dyson Animal. Maybe it's just because I'm not used to it yet, but it seems to be more difficult to reattach after using it. Lastly, the machine doesn't turn on a dime at sharp angles as shown in a diagram provided with it. It can be rather difficult to turn. Despite these issues, I am happy with my new Dyson as I'm sure it will extend the life of and help keep our carpet clean for many years to come. Just like our old Dyson did, which is still working, by the way. I gave it to my daughter after her competitor vacuum, which compares itself to Dyson, broke down after 6 months.

finally a vacuum that picks up doghair!!!

By KarenR

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

I am so happy with this vacuum!!! All the reviews said is was great but in my mind I wasn't completely conveinced, but enough to buy it. LOL I tried it out as soon as I got it and it works FANTASTIC!!! I have 2 dogs, a German Shephard and a Golden Retriever. Both has lots of shedding and the golden fur gets caught up into the carpet and is very hard to get out. My last vacuum I had to pick the fur out of the carpet by hand because the vacuum just wouldn't pick it up. This vacuum picked it up so fast and easy. I didn't have to go over it acouple times. I think its a super powerful suction that really does the trick. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this vacuum to anyone that has dogs!! or any animals that shed a lot. Extremely happy with this purchase!!!!

Amazing Product

By DavidMassachusetts

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

I have upgraded from different models all of which were excellent. This model is the best that I have ever owned, the suction is powerful, it works on both my rugs and my hardwood. The tank that collects the stuff that the vacuum pickups is very large, the cord reaches around my entire house, the hand turbine tool removes all of the cats hair form the places that she sleeps. I am very pleased with this product, I highly recommend this product as well as other Dyson vacuums. This vacuum replaced a DC-50 that i used for three years never had a problem with and still had amazing suction after three years. Previous to the DC-50 I had a DC-14 and had the same results, I used it for over five years, never had anything break, and it never lost suction. Keep up the nice work Dyson!!!!

New cleanup

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

I only received the vacuum today but it is definitely stronger than my previous machine. The suction is amazing. I love the hair cleanup tool. Two dogs and a roommate with long hair. No problem. Cleaned every nook and cranny. Now just have to keep it that way. I've seen negative reviews from the store I purchased it from. I don't understand why. Only one slight complaint is detaching extender wand seems a bit more complicated than my previous model but it will get easier with time I think.

Important video assembly

By pguibor

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

I bought this unit today and assembled in 30 minutes. Written instructions helpful, however, the assembly video was outstanding. Until I saw the video, I could not figure out one piece which now appears to be the assesory mount on the side of machine. Plenty of suction and vacuumed the house just after assembly. Downside is that the outside of unit becomes dusty, which means there may be a leak? Also, this is not a machine for young ladies...it requires some lifting and ability to carry to reach some areas. Overall, looks great for first night run.

My cousin came to visit and asked if I had a vacuum. I did, it was cheap and had no power. He left, that impression he left on me did not. Black Friday deals on this and the Cinetic Small Ball Animal. They were out of the smaller and less expensive one. I didn't flinch and picked this one up because I knew I needed to do something. Two canisters on the first to second floor stairs and a canister on the first to basement stairs. 100% satisfied.

Many reasons I hate my Dyson

By 3dog200

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

The one stare is for It really does pick up the dog hair! In about a 3 -4 sq ft area before the canister has to emptied. That is a trip to the garage because the dust and dander flies every where the canister is opened. Then have to pry the hair out as it is stuck to the sides. Back in side to vacuum another sq yd. Then there is the cleaning filters which don't dry in 24 hrs. Need to wash out side as the fine silt and dust clogs the pipes. It it weren't so expensive I would just put it in the trash or recycling. Disclosure I have 3 dogs and live in an older home with original plumbing.

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

Upgraded from our 11yo DC14 unit (which still works, by the way) to the Cinetic Big Ball vacuum and could not be more pleased. I was impressed with the DC14 but the Big Ball got up dirt the DC14 had missed for years! I had written off a section of carpet in our home as stained and in need of replacement...until I used the Big Ball on it. I am not joking when I say my carpet changed color as the Big Ball sucked up years of ground-in dirt! My only disappointment is that the tools from our previous Dyson do not fit the Big Ball, so we will have to purchase additional tools to really use it to its full potential. But, if it lasts as long as our DC14, it's worth the investment.

Customer service is great also.

Excellent for pet hair!

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

O.K., so even though we just bought our Dyson yesterday, let me just say that I'm thoroughly impressed. Having three dogs and two cats in the house means that we have a ton of fur floating around. We've looked around to get a good vacuum at a decent price, and although they all work well out of the box, they all still lack the suction that is needed to get up all the fur. Our Dyson straight out of the box was ten times better than the others, and it gives dramatic results. Our throw rug in the family room looks better than when we bought it. That is where our pets spend a lot of time, so naturally, their fur gets entwined in it. After a once over with the Dyson, there was not one piece of fur in it, though we had to empty the canister three times with all the fur that it picked up. Looking forward to trying the pet grooming brush as well to keep the fur level lower than it already is. Can't wait to see how it works!

Wonderful Machine

By DeeBeatt

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

I bought this machine today and cleaned my entire house and was amazed at the power it had as it removed so much deep down dirt and hair from my two Golden retrievers that my prior cleaner left behind! I was shocked at how much it got up! It was easy to use and the attachments are a great addition. It was great to be able to get all the dog hair off the stairs carpet. I really loved how I could go from carpet to flooring and sweep the kitchen so much easier then a broom. The only critique I would give is product is that the bagless container is messy to dump out so you really have to hold a bag around it tight when emptying or you will have dust mess everywhere.

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

I bought this 3 days ago and have used it twice now. It is very easy to use and I love that the suction is strong enough to pickup dog hair with one swipe of the machine. I use to have to go over the same area several times with my old vacuum. Another great feature is the long extension cord on it. I am able to do 3 rooms without having to unplug the outlet and move it to another outlet. I am having to get use to the powerful suction. I have a small 3x5 rug in front of the refrigerator and it pulls it right off the ground. Overall, I am so happy that I invested in a dyson!
