Reviewed

Dyson’s Big Ball Animal 2 bagless Cylinder vacuum cleaner is aimed at pet owners and comes with a tangle-free turbine tool to pick up stubborn tufts of fur that have been left behind on your carpet or sofa. Many vacuum cleaners struggle to suck up the cat and dog hair that we comb into Wilton carpet for our tests, so does this Dyson fare better than most? Read our review to find out.
