Independent Review of the NEW Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Plus Allergy Upright Vacuum!
Dyson has built a reputation for offering innovative floor care products. We have Dyson thank for the invention of cyclonic technology which has made bagless vacuum cleaners common place.
And when you think there is nothing more to be invented Dyson does it again – well, maybe!
“..what’s it worth..”
What would it be worth to you NOT have to clean or change vacuum cleaner Filters?
Dyson seems to have taken vacuum cleaner technology to the almost Maintenance-Free level with their latest innovation – Cinetic Technology.
Introducing the NEW Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Plus Allergy bagless upright.
The Dyson Cinetic Big Ball is a powerful upright loaded with features designed for pet owners and families with respiratory issues.
It comes equipped with attachments such as the tangle-free Turbine Tool that works very well for pet hair.
Independent testing showed the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Plus Allergy “..equaled or beat other top bagless pet hair vacuum models.”
What is Cinetic Vacuum Cleaner Technology and Why Should I Care?
To minimize the amount of fine dirt that gets blown back into the air we breathe a vacuum filter is necessary. For many decades filters have worked well for removing the fine particulates, especially a HEPA class filter.
The problem is, filters eventually become clogged reducing vacuum suction and need to be cleaned or replaced. New replacement filters cost money!
Dyson’s Cinetic Technology eliminates the need for filters by utilizing 35 Oscillating High Frequency Cinetic Tips. These Cinetic Tips generate up to 313.000G’s of centrifugal force that sling tiny microscopic particulates into the dirt bin. Particulates as tiny as pollen and mold spores as well as dust mite feces that can provoke allergic reactions and would eventually clog a HEPA filter.
So the benefits of Cinetic Technology are: No Loss of Suction; no dirty filters to clean or replace and almost purified air to breathe.
The Cinetic Technology is so efficient it creates a completely sealed HEPA-level vacuum system.
In fact the NEW Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Plus Allergy does such a thorough job of removing allergy-causing
dust it is Certified Asthma and Allergy-Friendly by the American Allergy Foundation.
The New Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Plus Allergy comes equipped with a powerful Dyson motor that creates amazing suction at the vacuum nozzle. Testing showed it is one of the most powerful pet hair vacuums available for 2015. Independent customer reviews show it has more than enough Suction Power to remove Pet Hair from any floor surface.
The Motorized Brushroll has stiff bristles that allow it to dig out the deepest, most entangled pet hair and debris from your carpet.
Ball Steering Technology makes the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Plus Allergy extremely maneuverable.
The Self-Adjusting Cleaning Head has an active Base Plate. It adjusts automatically as you transition from one floor surfaces to another creating a “Suction Seal” to ensure the most minute particles get sucked into the vacuum.
- Dyson’s exclusive Tangle-Free Turbine Tool. It is the only one I have seen that doesn’t get tangled with pet hair. Instead of a roll brush it uses two Counter-Rotating brush heads that grab pet hair from the front and sides of the tool, to be sucked into the vacuum system. It works extremely well on Carpet, Upholstery, and Carpeted Stairs.
- The Reach-Under Crevice Tool has been re-engineered in a flexible Paddle-shape with bristles. It enables you to reach the most difficult to access areas of your home to easily remove dirt.
The Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Plus Allergy gave impressive performance on all carpet. It definitely meets expectations for removing pet hair.
Like most upright vacuums, it is not that impressive for cleaning Hardwood Floors. A better choice for an Upright if you have hardwood floors is the New Shark DuoClean Powered Lift Away Speed NV803. It gives excellent cleaning performance on both carpet and hardwood floors and is more reasonably priced.
I prefer a manually adjustable vacuum head over the Auto-adjusting system which is standard on Dyson uprights. It does work well but I like to be able to custom-adjust for the floor type for the best performance.
I like the “Hygienic” Dust Cup emptying system. It works well and minimizes any dust cloud when dumping.
Keep in mind, the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Plus Allergy is a full-size vacuum at 19.2 lbs. If your home is multi-level this could be an issue.
Above-floor cleaning is made easy with the detachable hose and wand. The accessories and tools are well-designed and work well.
Dyson’s Ball Steering makes it very maneuverable around furniture but the added size creates a clearance issue when trying to clean under low furniture.
The Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Plus Allergy definitely lives up to its designation as a Pet Hair vacuum. If you are a pet owner with one or more pets that shed a lot of hair and your home is mostly carpet the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Plus Allergy is definitely an option to consider.
Although approximately the same price, I believe the Dyson DC65 Animal Complete Upright Vacuum Cleaner is a better value if you are set on a Dyson.
