Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright Vacuum Cleaner for Homes with Pets
When it comes to floor care, homes with pets need a little extra attention. The Dyson Ball Animal is designed specifically for such homes. Dyson's Radial Root Technology maximizes suction power - flow efficiency reduces turbulence and preserves air pressure to remove more dust, allergens and pet hair from carpets and floors. The Ball Animal 2 also features HEPA filtration, so it's certified asthma and allergy friendly. No other vacuum expels cleaner air.
Dyson Ball vacuums provide easy steering. As the ball's axis is tilted, its turning circle tightens, allowing full and accurate steering control. Plus, instant release technology allows the wand and hose to be released in one smooth action, so cleaning up high is simple and painless. When it comes time to empty the Ball's .55 gallon dust bin, a simple push of a button releases the dirt.
Accessories include a combination tool, stair tool and tangle-free turbine tool (All included with vacuum).
In 1978, James Dyson became frustrated with his vacuum cleaner's diminishing performance. Taking it apart, he discovered that its bag was clogging with dust, causing suction to drop. He'd recently built an industrial cyclone tower for his factory that separated paint particles from the air using centrifugal force. But could the same principle work in a vacuum cleaner He set to work. Five years and 5,127 prototypes later, he had invented the world's first bagless vacuum cleaner.
James Dyson's vacuum cleaner was first sold in Japan, the home of high-tech products. Known as the 'G-Force', it impressed the Japanese with its performance and quickly became a status symbol, selling for $2,000 a piece. It also won the 1991 International Design Fair prize in Japan.
With the royalties from G-Force sales, James Dyson was able to set up his own company, Dyson Ltd. In 1993 he opened his own research centre and factory in the Cotswolds, and set to work making a new vacuum - one that would capture even smaller particles of dust. It was called DC01, for 'Dual Cyclone', and it was the first vacuum cleaner to maintain 100% of suction 100% of the time.
Today, there are Dyson machines in over 65 countries around the world. Dyson has grown from one man and one idea to a technology company with over 1,000 engineers worldwide. But it doesn't stand still. At its core is an ever-growing team of engineers and scientists. More ideas. More invention.
