Dyson Ball Animal 2 Specifications

The cleansing power

The suction power is ranked at 270AW by Dyson. All their other designs have a lower AW (i.e. the Cinetic Big Ball has 245AW). There’s a huge sticker label on the body of the upright which states it’s the vacuum with the greatest suction power in the marketplace. This is not the very first time Dyson extols suction. It’s plainly a marketing strategy, seen likewise i.e. in SharkNinja’s items; and as you can envision, there were a couple of legal actions on this matter. I’ll absolutely do a contrast in between the current Shark Navigator Lift-Away Professional which I’ve simply evaluated and this Dyson, however till then, are enough to state the Animal 2 can truly “draw”! No matter if you utilizing it on carpets or difficult floorings, the auto-adjustable nozzle does its task right. When it comes to cleansing above the flooring, it can clean up upholstery, couches, and drapes with the assistance of the quick-release wand.

Input power

It utilizes 1400W (11.67 amps at 120V) to power its strong motor. It’s more than exactly what other uprights require, however still cost-effective enough.

Bin Capacity

The.55 gallons bin can be cleared hygienically with simply a push of a button. The size is about the same when it comes to the Big Ball Cinetic, which suffices. Any larger would have made it a much heavier, chunkier item. After having fun with it for a while, I have a little piece of advice: ensure you clear the receptacle when the particles reach limit indication. The size of the bin is perfect and should allow you to clean up as much as 3000 sq feet in one go.


The entire vacuum is ranked HEPA. Likewise, with all current Dysons, the Animal 2 likewise got the seal of approval/excellence from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. Nevertheless, this vacuum does not consist of the Cinetic Technology seen in their leading design, so you’ll still need to clean the life time filter from time to time.


It determines 42.13 ″ (height) x 15.35 ″ (width) x 13.39 ″ (depth) and weighs around 17 pounds, which suggests it’s practically 2 pounds lighter than the Cinetic. It’s not that heavy or big as I have actually anticipated. The nozzle has a width of 13.3 ″. The power cable can extend as long as 35 ft. Adding the tube length and the devices, one reach as far as 50 ft. It so compact that it looks like with the Dyson Small Ball.


Among the very best parts about purchasing a Dyson is that it includes a 5 year service warranty. And as I provided to you a while earlier, Dyson client care indicates service. You can be safe understanding that you will be looked after if required.

The system can be put together in less than 1 minute. The Dyson Ball Animal 2 can deal with practically any type of surface area (tile, carpet, wood). It includes an immediate release wand that makes it simpler to reach any part of your home. Users can reach both high locations and under the furnishings with this function. The swivel steering works well on the ball. The sound nevertheless is a bit high. The products feel fantastic, and the style is appealing as typical.

Unique functions

I would have enjoyed some LED lights. Regrettably, besides the products explained above, there’s very little one can include. The self-adjusting nozzle is as constantly, a terrific addition. The power cable is long enough to please even the most demanding homemaker. The filters are life time washable and as an outcome, there’s no having to change anything in this item, after a couple of years of continual usage.
