Dyson’s best 2013 upright vacuum. The Dyson DC41 Animal has updated its Radial Root Cyclone™ Technology to increase suction power. 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 new lightweight 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 Dyson 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 new cleaner head on the DC41 Animal self-adjusts which gives you more suction power.

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).
