Dyson Big Ball Animal 2 Cylinder Vacuum is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful I’ve had this hoover since January and it’s awful , it’s clumpy , heavy , the hose is shorter than the one I had before , the pneumatic head can’t cope with going over my wood floor divider from tiles to wood floor, the hose pipe rest is in a stupid position so that when it’s in you can’t pick it up and carry it properly.. I replaced my old dyson temporarily with a red hoover with a face on the front and I thought that was bad . For the price of this hoover , I feel like I’ve been robbed . The only good thing about this is the suction . The accessorie heads are not as good as before . Overall completely disappointed with this hoover .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Suction i have ever seen in my life I brought this hoover, this hoover is a beauty,the suction is so good that it almost pull my carpet on the stairs,also the attachment which has come with the hoover are very easy to used. i have used different hoovers in the past and most of the hoovers i send back within the cooling off period,but this hoover i am not having even a single reason to give it back. Only one thing i am worried is that, the dust bin is closed by a very tiny plastic clip which i thing is very thin and delicate and may break easily and if it breaks you will no be able to close the Hygienic bin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dyson Engineers Doing Their Stuff! I have had this new machine for a month now and am most impressed. (I will be passing my older model on to my daughter now that she too has a dog). I particularly like the neatness of this latest version and the ease with which the dust collector clicks back into position on the machine after emptying - much better than the original design. The adjustable head is great and the suction is powerful. Terrifying to see how much dust and hair accumulates around the place with 3 dogs! This new version is less bulky for storage too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Total clean This is my first cylinder Dyson, having always opted for upright vacuums in the past. I had a few teething problems to start with, all my fault.. apparently you have the wand with the cleaning head at an angle from you and not almost upright as I had with my upright cleaners. So for the first two days I was stuck to the carpet being unable to push the cleaning head anywhere, but once I got the angle right I was amazed at the amount of debris my Dyson total clean collected. The attachments are all good to use, and the machine came with a little adapter that I could use my previously purchased Dyson tools with. The cylinder is easy to empty and again I am amazed at the amount collected with in. It is very user friendly (once you stop trying to use it like an upright Dyson) & cleans away dog hairs with ease.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dyson Big Ball Animal 2 Bought this as it was the nearest model to my old DC32 which was brilliant for storing away in a small space where the hose could be wrapped around the machine and the tools all clipped on. The Dyson Big Ball however, which has brilliant suction power, has some major design faults, one being the space needed to store it, the handle has to be stored upright and the tools cannot all be clipped onto the machine. I also find the height of the handle too short and I end up with back ache as I have to bend down to vacuum. I am only of average height. Another more minor design flaw is the catch that holds the dust container closed. It comes open quite easily when removing the container and I end up with all the dust over the base of the vacuum cleaner. But as mentioned before it has brilliant suction power and I like all the additional tools that come with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very powerful, minor design fault This is a very powerful cleaner that with the range of heads available gives great flexibility of use. Without any bags to replace, emptying is easy. However, it has a minor design flaw in that the catch that holds the dust container closed is quite flimsy. This means it can come open, especially when removing the dust container to empty it - it can empty itself all over the base of the vacuum and the floor which is very annoying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use My new Dyson big ball is light in weight and easy to carry. It is also extremely quiet. I didn't realise my carpets were so dirty until I emptied the clear bin unit. It is an improvement that the attachments are snapped on while not in use so they cannot be dislodged accidently. My only negative point is that I think that the on/off button and the plug cable retractor buttons seem a bit flimsy and could possibly get broken off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over the moon I have just purchased this, and boy am I a happy bunny. Brilliant suction, easy to pull along/add tools. I am disabled, and find vacuuming difficult, but this machine makes life so much easier for me. The only thing that I feel needs changing, is the on/off button and cord rewind are quite flimsy, and I'm worried they could break easily. Other than that I would 100% recommend this machine :).
