Dyson Big Ball vacuum cleaners offer deep cleaning and easy operation, including the Big Ball Animal package. The additional tools that come with the Dyson Animal kits address the challenging cleaning situations pet ownership presents. If your dog, cat, or other furry friend is comfortable around the vacuum the Dyson Groom tool can be used to brush the animal and collect their hair before it is ever shed inside the home. Even with proper grooming pet hair can collect on couches, stairs, pet beds, and numerous other upholstered surfaces. This is where the Dyson Tangle Free Turbine Tool comes into play - its counter rotating bristles won't clog, but will remove the hair and other debris. Pets, and kids, have been known to track dirt inside which can easily be scrubbed out with the stiff bristle brush.
There are two floor attachments included to tackle both bare floors and low to medium pile carpets. To get in tight spaces, and around furniture legs, the Articulating Bare Floor Brush has a swivel in the neck that allows it to be maneuverable, and the bristles are effective on all non-carpeted surfaces. For area rugs and carpeting the Carbon Fibre Turbine head has a rotating brush to gently, yet effectively, agitate carpet fibres to help release dirt. This attachment has alternating rows of nylon and carbon fibres which make it safe to use on bare floors as well.
To help increase stability Dyson engineers lowered the centre of gravity when they designed the Big Ball canisters. This has made going around corners and over thresholds a lot easier. Working with the lower centre point is the ball-shape of the canister as it allows the machine to roll back over into the proper position if its accidentally tipped over. Instead of a fixed connection point between the hose handle and wand Dyson has integrated an articulating joint making for a 360° rotation preventing twists or tangles while you clean. The debris is collected in the dirt bin, which also contains the washable filter. For a cleaner experience, Dyson dirt buckets now use the hygienic dirt ejector. This is a silicone wiper that encompasses the shroud and cyclones that pushes any dirt, hair, or build up out of the bucket.
