Self-adjusting cleaner head

Self-adjusting cleaner head

The cleaner heads on most upright vacuums need to be manually adjusted for different floor types. If this isn’t done, a gap is created between the cleaner head and the floor – and suction is lost.
The Dyson Ball Animal has an active base-plate that self-adjusts across every floor type. It maintains close contact with the floor at all times, automatically raising and lowering. Suction isn’t wasted – it’s sealed in. It also has 25% more power than its predecessor to drive bristles deeper into carpets and release more ground-in dirt.

Inventions that set Dyson technology apart

Radial Cyclone™ technology

By arranging the inner cyclones in a radial formation, airflow can be channelled directly through the centre of the cyclone assembly once it has passed through both stages of cyclone separation. This improves flow efficiency, preserving air pressure and maximising suction.
Dyson engineers have further refined the cyclone inlets and vortex fingers to generate more suction through the machine – to remove more dirt and dust from the home.

Dyson’s most advanced Radial Cyclone™ technology

The cyclones in the Dyson Ball Animal have been re-tuned, meaning that the geometry of the inlets as well as the diameter of the vortex finders have been modified to allow more airflow to pass through them.

25% more brush bar power

The power draw of the motorhead motor has been increased via the electronic control board, so it is able to use 25% more power. Increased power drives bristles deeper, to release more dirt.

Edge to edge cleaning

Dyson engineers have stripped back the design of the cleaner head so that the brush bar has end to end coverage. No more irritating dirty strips at the base of skirting boards and cabinets.

Rides on a ball - steers easily into difficult places

No more awkward moves – Dyson Ball Animal can be steered with a turn of the wrist for cleaning in difficult places.

Ball™ technology – a dynamic turning circle

Fixed wheels are not designed to turn corners. But a ball can turn on the spot. As the ball’s axis is tilted, its turning circle tightens – allowing full and accurate steering control.

The vacuum’s key components have been engineered to fit inside the ball itself. This gives the machine a streamlined profile, allowing access to tight spaces and lowering its centre of gravity to make it lighter in the hand.

Instant Release Hose and Wand

Instant release hose and wand - without fiddly parts to assemble

The hose and wand on the Dyson Ball Animal release in one smooth action, making it easy to clean up high.

Removes hair
without tangling

The Dyson Ball Animal comes with the Tangle-free Turbine tool, so you can remove dirt and hair – without it tangling around a brush bar.
