Dyson’s best compact upright vacuum. The Dyson DC50 Animal Compact Vacuum is a smaller version of the DC41. It has the latest Radial Root Cyclone™ Technology with 2 Tier Radial cyclones 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 (as it weighs just 11.6 lbs). Equipped with Dyson Ball technology, this compact upright vacuum cleaner sits on a ball for easy twisting and turning around furniture and obstacles. This version is Dyson’s best compact vacuum for pet hair. The new cleaner head on the DC50 Animal self-adjusts which gives you more suction power.

Dyson cyclone technology with its Hepa Filter capture microscopic pollen, mold, and bacteria so that you don’t breath in what was in your carpets. This vacuum is suitable for those with allergies to dust and mold and is approved by the British Allergy Foundation. The motorized brush bar helps remove deep down dirt and pet hair from carpets, while the ball technology allows you to effortlessly move the vacuum around furniture and other obstacles. You can use the new included “Tangle-Free” Mini Turbine Tool to remove dirt and pet hair from smaller areas, such as stairs, inside your car, and furniture. The telescoping wand and hose give you a long reach to clean stairs, walls, drapes, and ceilings. The DC50 weighs only 11.6 pounds, making it easy to carry up the stairs. This model is a Smart-Review top pick and our best compact upright in the bagless vacuum category.

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).
