Dyson is synonymous with exceptional and innovative vacuum cleaning, with a reputation cast in stone - they are, undoubtedly, the best. This Small Ball Animal vacuum cleaner is one of a kind, and while it's designed to pick up pet hair predominantly, it's versatile enough to be suited to an array of cleaning needs.

Voracious Vacuuming

As the name suggests, the SMALLBALLANIM+ is geared up for those with pets. 2 Tier Radial Cyclones have been engineered to concentrate the cyclone technology found in Dyson full-sized vacuums by using 2 tiers of smaller cyclones instead, capturing more microscopic dust and making it impressively powerful despite its modest size. Coming in as Dyson's smallest upright machine, it's Ultra-Lightweight and features a Compact Storage Mode for when you're in a tight spot.

Despite its surprising proportions, it has a substantial 0.8 Litre Capacity, and a re-engineered, reversible wand provides a total cleaning reach of 12.96m - a total 45% increase on Dyson's previous smaller vacuum efforts. A 9.5m cord adds another level of convenience, offering a generous reach for cleaning stairs or car interiors (even further aided by the Stair Tool) while a Hygienic Bin Emptying feature stops dust escaping into the air to settle again on your carpets. This neat little vacuum is an all-round performer, perfectly portable without sacrificing suction.

The Dyson Design

The signature Dyson Ball Technology makes vacuuming easier than ever before. Both compact in size and with spectacularly smooth handling, the SMALLBALLANIM+ comes top of the class for making light work of difficult-to-reach places. A self-adjusting cleaner head, carbon fibre brushes and a Tangle Free Turbine all accumulate to make the Small Ball Animal an extraordinarily easy vacuuming experience, with very little maintenance necessary - giving you one less thing to do.

19 cyclones working in parallel across two tiers generate high centrifugal forces. More microscopic particles as small as 0.5 microns are captured from the airflow. And as with all Dyson vacuums, there's no bag, so there's no loss of suction.
Dyson Ball vacuums turn on the spot, moving easily around obstacles and furniture. Key components, including the motor, are located inside the ball for a low centre of gravity and greater stability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great suction but The performance of this machine is of the usual high Dyson standard but I do have several issues with it. As others have noted the hose I feel although short is also quite taut and requires a bit of pulling to get some length and it is necessary to hold it tight or it will revert back to the original position. The extra length of cable is very welcome and allows the whole house to be done from downstairs but the cable hooks are too small for the amount of cable supplied and as the retaining clips are too small the cable tends to drop off the hooks, (larger hooks would be a great benefit). As others have mentioned when opening the dirt tank the dirt stays put and it requires having to insert fingers to pull the dirt out. Having said all this negativity I still think it is a superb machine with fantastic suction even on the lowest setting (the high setting is a bit strong) and would continue to purchase and recommend Dyson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent hoover! I was very pleased with my purchase this small but effective hoover is brilliant very light weight so its easy to carry around, the power of this is amazing I was surprised to see how much this little guy picked up. I also love the design and the roller ball makes it very easy to get into tight space's and to maneuver around.Great features as well the tools that come with it are awesome, overall its a very good hoover.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I am disappointed with this model. I've always had a dyson and purchased this as it as advertised as lightweight easy and clean to empty, ideal for homes with pets etc. However, I do have a dog and a cat and therefore generate hair. Emptying the bin is not clean - I have to physically put my hand in the bin to remove the dirt and hair as it gets stuck. Also although light it is unstable when using the hose. I was on my hands and knees hovering under the sofa using the hose when the appliance fell hitting me on the head and splitting my head open. If I could afford to replace it I would.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful vacum I wouldn't bother to buy this hoover if you want to hoover your stairs or go from one room to another. Even hoovering down the side of the bed is difficult. It falls over consistently as the hose is very short even with the extension. I end up having to lift it up off the ground just so can reach a cobweb. I've always had dyson's and been please so I thought I would go for the more compact style. Compact for sure but to achieve this they have sacrificed the basic needs of a vacuum. I wish I'd purchased larger vacum as this it what I have always had.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the weight, otherwise disappointed I have had this machine just over a month and I wish I hadn't bought it. It has some great qualities but it also has some really not great qualities that leave me really disappointed. Dyson cleaners seem to be getting bigger and heavier and we need something less cumbersome, which this machine is. It's weight makes it easier to carry up stairs but its flimsy feel when doing so makes me feel its going to break. Its suction is fantastic but the downside to that means manoeuvering it is difficult. It feels like a fight to use it on the carpets but the pick up and lifting of the pile is great. The waste drum is tiny and so I empty ours after every room as its very easy for the contents to become too compact to drop out on opening. I look at the picture of this machine and I struggle to see why the drum couldn't be wider. When needing to empty an over filled drum there is little room to do so and I have hands the size of an 11 year old child so I can't imagine its made for an adult. The handle connecting to the main body feels flimsy and its here that I think its likely to break easily. On balance I regret purchasing this machine and I am looking for an alternative.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lost a lot of potential by making it compact. Great on carpets in upright mode, not great on hard floors. Hose is pointlessly short which makes it dangoerous on stairs and is prone to falling over on the flat if you apply a little pressure on the hose to get that little bit extra in the extension. Hose suction is not to bad but not amazing, hose suction can be temprimental as the mechinism that switches from hose to upright is hit and miss. Cleaning is difficult, usually have to stick chopstick in the dust collector to get the dust out which gets messy, flies in the face of the argument for bagless. Always been a Dyson fan from the first DC but become less and less impressed with each model. Stop feeling the need to create mechanical wonders at the risk of loosing purpose. Keep it simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At last something lighter I have used Dyson's for two decades and finally they have a product in their range that is not going to do you a back injury every time you take it up and down the stairs. Don't be put off with its size. I have a large four bed house and this easily copes with it, and in fact does a better job as it is easier to manoeuvre and can reach places my old DC15 couldn't. Not a problem for me but maybe others, you will need to empty the bin after every two or three uses and also clean the filters monthly. I noted the new big Dyson cinetic ball requires no filter maintenance at all, but it is a whopping 4 kg heavier than this model.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Where can I buy spares? I have a Dyson Small Ball Animal. Originally worked a treat clearing up hair from my 2 Long Haired GS's, but in 12 months use, on minimum brush bar adjustment, the brush bar has lost all its black coloured brushes, red still ok ish! Now not pick up hair so well :( Struggling to find somewhere to get a replacement brush bar. Then if I find a brush bar, how does fit?
