In this Dyson Cinetic Ball Animal Canister Vacuum 65024-01 review, we’ll look at the pros and cons of Dyson’s Cinetic Ball design.
Pros of the Dyson Cinetic Ball
This vacuum is, like all Dysons, reliable. Dyson canister vacuums tied with Kenmore and Miele on reliability in the 2015 Consumer Reports. Dyson canister vacuums overall had an 8% repair rate, while 10% of Hoover canister vacuums needed repair in a given year. For Electrolux, it was a whopping 13%.
This vacuum maintains suction as the canister fills and never loses suction because the filter clogged; it has no filter at all.
This vacuum can pick up the ultra fine particles of mold and dust, and it doesn’t vent fine dust behind it like a cloud. It does a much better job than average picking up pet dander.
The vacuum has a five year warranty.
The Dyson Cinetic Ball comes with a turbine tool to pick up dirt, debris and pet dander from upholstery. It does a decent job of this, though the tool has lower suction than the main vacuum head.The Cinetic Ball’s turbine tool does an excellent job of picking up pet fur off of upholstery without tangling on said fur.
The vacuum has built in storage for accessories. They click into place, staying there securely until you push a button to release it.
You can use all of the accessories with the hose, with the handle and with the hose and handle combined.
The handle and hose combined have a whopping ten feet in reach. You can clean the drapes and the far side of the couch with this vacuum.
The Dyson’s 21 foot power cord is retractable. You don’t need to plug it in before unplugging it as you vacuum around a room, and the cord neatly retracts out of the way as you move. The cord length itself is average to above average in length.
Cons of the Dyson Cinetic Ball
The biggest weakness of this model is the small canister. It fills up quickly, so the canister needs to be emptied often whether you are picking up a lot of pet fur or cleaning a really dirty house. Emptying the dust bin is not as convenient as it is on even some other Dyson vacuums.
This model is around $550. This is more expensive than the Dyson DC65, which managed to place third in the bagless upright vacuum category of the 2015 Consumer Reports.
You can’t turn off the brush bar. Other Dyson vacuums let you do this.
This Dyson Cinetic Ball Animal Canister Vacuum 65024-01 review wouldn’t be complete without information that may affect your decision but is neither a clear point for or against the model.
However, this vacuum has no filters, so it has lower lifetime maintenance costs.
This vacuum doesn’t have a headlight to help you see where the vacuum nozzle is located, though it does have a low profile head and long hose to let you reach those dark, dank corners that you desperately need to vacuum.
This vacuum can clean hardwood floors and carpets as long as they aren’t plush. This vacuum isn’t going to get berber and other thick carpets clean.
The vacuum weighs around 24 pounds and has strong suction. Older individuals losing their upper body strength may have trouble maneuvering it up and down stairs or pushing and pulling the unit along as you clean the house.
