Is this the best price?

The Dyson Cinetic “Big Ball” Animal vacuum cleaner has the newest Cyclonic technology called Dyson Cinetic Science. The new technology eliminates the need for a filter, so no filters to clean or replace. The motorized brush bar makes this model ideal for removing pet hair. For delicate rugs and hard floors, the brush bar can be turned off. Dyson’s upright ball vacuum is ideal for those who want a powerful vacuum that doesn’t lose suction, but also don’t want to have to work with a heavy floor-cleaning machine.

Equipped with the latest Dyson Big Ball technology, this upright vacuum cleaner sits on a ball for easy twisting and turning around furniture and obstacles. This version is Dyson’s best vacuum for pet hair. The cleaner head on the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball, self-adjusts which gives you more suction power on both carpets and hard floors.

Best of 2018 Smart-Review Commentary: The Dyson Cinetic “Big Ball” Animal Vacuum is Dyson’s best upright vacuum and best pet hair vacuum. The new Dyson Cinetic™ Science eliminates the need for a filter, and gives you Whole Vacuum HEPA filtration. The Cinetic tips on the cyclones capture microscopic pollen, mold, and bacteria so that you don’t breath in what was in your carpets.

Dyson Cleaner Head

The motorized brush bar helps remove deep down dirt and pet hair from carpets, while the latest Big Ball™ technology allows you to effortlessly move the vacuum around furniture and other obstacles.

You can use the upgraded included Mini Turbine Tool (“tangle-free) to remove dirt and pet hair from smaller areas, such as stairs, inside your car, and furniture. This newer turbine tool now uses counter-rotating wheels to prevent pet hair from tangling the brushes. The Dyson Cinetic Animal upright vacuum includes 3 extra tools. The telescoping wand and hose give you a long reach to clean stairs, walls, drapes, and ceilings. The Cinetic Big Ball is very durable, as it is made of polycarbonate, the same material used for riot shields. This model has received extremely high marks from professional reviews as well as outstanding reviews by consumers. We got a full demonstration of the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball, and can attest to its capabilities (see our video below). It did a great job on our test carpets. This model is a Smart-Review top pick and Best of 2018 award winner.

Dyson Tangle-Free Mini Turbine Tool

Dyson's new Tangle-Free Mini Turbine Tool Video Demonstration (Click to Start)

Included “Tangle-Free” Mini Turbine Tool – Most good pet vacuums include an air driven turbo or turbine tool to remove pet hair, dirt and dust from smaller areas inaccessible from the vacuum. This would include vacuuming upholstery, chairs, stairs, beds, car interiors, and other smaller areas. Dyson has designed what we consider a superior “tangle-free” turbine tool, that removes long and short pet hair, threads, ribbons, shoelaces, strings and other hazards without tangling, as it has no beater bar to wrap around like traditional turbine tools (see video on left).
