dyson dc65 review:
the Animal Complete Upright Vacuum

The first time I used the Dyson DC65 Animal Complete Upright Vacuum, I thought something must be wrong with it.

I'd gone over a small patch of carpet once, and on the second pass, I couldn't hear anything getting sucked up. With my old vacuum, I could hear the sand (we live near the beach) getting sucked up on second and third passes of each small area.

I peeked into the see-through bin and found my answer: Inside rested more sand, fur, and dirt than my old vacuum collected from the entire room.  

It uses a patented cyclone technology that tests have shown remove 99.97 percent of dust, dirt, and allergens from the air.

This kind of power has made a huge difference in my time spent vacuuming, and how clean the carpet is afterward. It also means I'm now able to go an extra day before it's time to vacuum again. 

Best Features on the Dyson DC65.

  • It has a washable HEPA filter, certified by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.
  • It has the latest Ball technology, so you can steer it with only one hand.
  • It is lightweight for a vacuum at just under 17 pounds.
  • A self-adjusting cleaner head automatically changes its height to seal in the air flow across all types of floors, from hard wood to carpet.

More Dyson detail

At $618 this isn't the cheapest vacuum on the market by any means. If you're serious about getting rid of pet fur and dander completely - quickly and effectively - the Dyson DC65 Animal Complete Upright Vacuum Cleaner is worth a second look.

Here's what you should know and consider when choosing a vacuum.
