About this product

This item is eligible for same day delivery and faster in‑store collection

Weighing just 5.5kg, the Dyson Small Ball™ vacuum is Dyson's smallest upright machine. It's light to carry with a compact storage mode for tight spaces. Inside, you'll find the same technology as a Dyson full-size machine – re-engineered to deliver the cleaning performance you expect, in a size you want.

With an advanced self-adjusting cleaner head, dyson small ball™ animal automatically adjusts between carpets and hard floors – sealing in suction. Carbon fibre filaments remove fine dust from hard floors.

The dyson small ball animal is designed for homes with pets. It has a tangle free turbine tool for cleaning pet hair and dirt from confined spaces, upholstery, stairs and the car. Also hygienic bin emptying, crevice and stair tools.

A retractable wand saves up to 30% more storage space than the dyson dc40 full-size, but also extends up to 3 metres for high reach cleaning and accessing tight spaces.

With 2 Tier Radial™ cyclones, the Dyson Small Ball Animal has 19 cyclones that work in parallel across two tiers to generate high centrifugal forces. More microscopic particles as small as 0.5 microns are captured from the airflow.

Very disappointing

I bought this lightweight model to replace my previous Dyson animal that I had for 12 years. I loved the old model but I can honestly say I HATE this one! When using the hose I have to pull it quite firmly to keep it extended and that makes the machine fall over every time. The hose is not long enough to reach the top of the stairs so I have to take it up with me and balance it half way up and then risk it falling over again! To empty the bucket I have to put my hand in and pull out the fluff! I am so disappointed with this machine that If I could afford to replace it I would.

So much better than my old Dyson small ball. The pick up is awesome and the motorised stair tool makes things really easy

Dyson animal

Great little Hoover! Suction strong and picks up dog hair brilliantly. Love the turbo tool that comes with it, great for dog beds! Only downside is the machine itself feels quite flimsy and dare I say it cheap compared to the larger dyson machines but doesnt affect its hoovering ability.

Does the cleaner tend to tip over when the hose is being used?

1 Answer

Hi there,

With the very long length the hose gives it is very doubtful you would pull the machine over.
