The Dyson DC65 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner is yet another remarkable vacuum suitable for any household.

 

Pros and Highlights:

Redesigned Brush Bar

The reconfigured brush bar features a new design – the ridge where the bristles sit on is raised creating a shorter bristle length and at the same time stiffer in build, making it impossible to scratch hard floors and enabling a more immersive contact on carpets, accordingly removes more dirt elements.

You can also say good bye to dirty, annoying strips at the base of your cabinets and skirting boards as Dyson engineers managed to strip back the cleaner head’s design, creating a brush that has a coverage from end to end.

Patented Dyson Technology

One of the perks of having this Dyson DC65 Animal is the name itself. Dyson engineers are consistently innovating and discovering technological advancements with the aim to discern new approaches to make things work better than before.

Part of this innovation includes improving existing technologies to formulate new ones, deriving a more advanced technology from its predecessor. The DC65 Animal, for instance, is the birth of a new invention inspired by previous generation vacuums.

Another advantage of having a Dyson are the patented technologies that protect your investment by making sure no other manufacturer can copy the technology Dyson owns. Simply put, others can only imitate but they can’t duplicate the entirety of Dyson.

When you have a Dyson, like this DC65 Animal, you have yourself a machine crafted with revolutionary novelty that you can never find in other brands. If it’s not a Dyson, it’s not a Dyson.

High-tech

Now this term is something you can rarely find in my reviews. I personally consider a Dyson, particularly the DC65, as amazingly high-tech.It utilizes Radial Root Cyclone technology for optimum suction power plus it preserves air pressure and reduces turbulence with its improved air flow efficiency, meaning more miniscule particles are removed by the inner cyclones.

Dyson engineers also designed this machine to perform with a more powerful suction by refining the machine’s vortex fingers and cyclone inlets that eradicates more dust and dirt in your household. Furthermore, the DC65 features the latest Ball technology which is totally impressive – the vacuum’s key components are actually fitted INSIDE the ball itself. As a result, the vacuum becomes significantly lighter because of a lowered center of gravity, allowing you to gain access to tighter spaces thanks to the machine’s streamlined profile.

Self-adjusting Cleaner Head

Just when you think that the latest Ball technology is the end of all advancements compressed in this vacuum, wait till you are introduced to the self-adjusting cleaner head. Who could refuse to an automatic feature that does all the work for you?

It is a fundamental knowledge that most upright vacuums have cleaner heads that are not automatic – meaning you have to manually adjust it to suit various and different types of floor. If not done in the right manner, you’ll create a gap between the floor and the cleaner head, thus suction power is dramatically decreased creating unsatisfactory clean-up.

The vacuum cleaner is equipped with an automatic cleaner head with an active baseplate that adjusts all by itself, intelligently adapting to the current floor type where the vacuum is.

The self-adjusting cleaner head raises and lowers itself to keep a close contact to the surface, consequently sealing suction. Furthermore, it has 25% more power than the previous-generation drive bristles, capturing more ground-in dirt.

Cons

Here are some downsides of this model that most users would agree to; however, take note that user experience may vary depending on some factors which means that you may or may not encounter one or more of these listed cons.

High-end price

Everybody loves an affordable price, and the price of this Dyson is truly something that disappoints consumers, probably including you. After being presented all the features and possibilities the vacuum could offer, all you would want to do is to have one but knowing the price makes you instantly hesitant – and you are not alone with this conundrum. Not to mention that shipping is not free unlike most vacuums in other brands. But if you have tons of budget, then it would definitely be NOT a waste to have something that your money could buy.

Incompatible attachments

The package includes attachments and some of which are “incompatible” ones. Why? Because the vacuum can’t hold those attachments, a user claimed. It’s not known whether this is a packaging mishap or a design glitch that two large attachments, which came along with the box, do not fit anywhere or can’t be stored in the vacuum itself, the same user claimed.

Buttons are slightly hard to reach

I have nothing against the functionality of the vacuum as a whole, as well as its buttons particularly the power / hardwood floor button. The only downside is their location which is somewhat hard to reach. Well this con mainly depends on the user, but many consumers will surely agree when I say I wish these buttons were placed higher up on the handle so it can be easily accessed when you need it.

Conclusion

Currently known as the Dyson Ball Allergy, the Dyson DC65 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner, is definitely better than the DC41 with its more powerful brushroll and improved airflow, also making it better than most vacuums in the market. This is a highly recommended vacuum but only for people with a higher budget range.
