The Dyson Ball Animal 2 surprised me and I can’t wait to share how the grooming tool and instant release wand stand up to the test. I was shocked that the hose stretches 4.6 metres to clean the stairs and all the other hard to reach places around the house.
A few months ago the vacuum arrived and I was shocked at the suction power it offers, you can see why in my post about our area rugs. One of the great features is the additional tools included in the package that are worth over $250 and help you tackle everything from cobwebs to stairs.
The Dyson Ball Animal 2 Makes Vacuuming Simple
The additional tools included with the Dyson Ball Animal 2 are:
- Tangle-free turbine tool
- Dyson groom tool
- Articulating hard floor tool (this is the one I use on my stairs)
- Stiff bristle brush
- Stair tool
- Combination tool
When I’m in cleaning mode I like to focus on getting it done right the first time and making things as simple as possible. I need to easily tackle the stairs without fighting a cord or hose, quickly switch between attachments and have enough suction power to clean fur and dander out of our carpets.
I am happy to report that the Dyson Ball Animal 2 exceeded my expectations when it came to vacuuming the whole house. The instant-release wand comes free in one quick, smooth action and makes vacuuming the stairs a breeze. For short people like me, the wand is fantastic for reaching those high spots we tend to forget about.
The Dyson groom tool is great for the dogs, even though ours have short hair, it easily grabs the loose pieces before they’re shed around the house. We started by just brushing the dogs with the pet-friendly tool and then turning it on afterward so they got used to it. After a few times, we were able to run the vacuum while we brush them. If you have long haired pets this tool would make a world of difference.
It is easy to see why the Dyson Ball Animal 2 have won the Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA) Seal of Approval. The seal means it has gone through rigorous testing by busy families to make sure it stands up to our everyday messes.
The suction power is what impresses me the most with the vacuum. The self-adjusting cleaner head automatically adjusts to different floor types to seal in suction, that combined with a motorized brush bar deep cleans dirt and of course pet dander throughout the home.
The washable HEPA filter and hygienic bin emptying is a bonus, you can easily empty the canister with the touch of a button and not have to actually touch the debris. The filter can be removed and cleaned as needed, with no additional cost to your for new filters. Combine those features with the 5-year warranty on parts and labor and you’ll be happy you made the purchase decision.
Every time I use the Dyson Ball Animal 2 I’m amazed at how much debris it sucks and never loses power. From cobwebs to pet dander this vacuum has everything you need all in one unit.
