How it works


The Dyson Big Ball Absolute is engineered for powerful complete cleaning around the home. Dyson’s most efficient, cyclone technology captures the fine dust and debris that can clog other vacuums. The dust separation is so efficient that unlike conventional vacuum cleaners, there’s no need to wash or replace a filter. The Carbon fibre turbine head has stiff nylon bristles that deep-clean carpets & rugs and the carbon fibre filaments help remove fine dust from hard floors. As well as being easy to steer, it gets back up when it has been knocked over!

Dyson Big Ball Absolute Vacuum Cleaner is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Vaccum the fur, but stuck with the smell We have used our animal+ for 2 years now. We loved the suction and ability to remove dirt. We hate that there is no efficient way to ‘clean’ the vaccum when you are done with it so dander will remain stuck in the cyclone and boy does it smell. Washed your dog and gone to freshen up your house including vacuuming all the carpets? The vaccum is like a dirty pet air un-freshener. No matter what I have tried I haven’t been able to solve for this so we’ve had to stop using it and bought the latest roomba instead - at least I can change the filters abs don’t have to live with never having a fresh smallish house anymore. So expensive for such poor features.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy at all This is my third Dyson, so to say I loved and bragged about Dyson was an understatement but that has very much changed. Says that it picks up dog, which it does but every second time I use it it’s tangled in the head. The handle has a separation that pinches me and anyone else that uses it every time. Opening the barrel is so so so difficult and my daughter can’t even do it at all. The contents get stuck in this and have to pull out by hand which causes a mess that needs to be vacuumed up again. Brought this vacuum cleaner as the previous I had a animal suction head and it was brilliant why change something that was so good this is a disappointment

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Messy I have had this vacuum for around 3-4 months. I would never recommend it to anyone. I have 4 children and the 2 of us. This vacuum makes more mess than my kids. It just breaks up anything and sprays it around the room. It is a great car cleaning vacuum, but you need to remove the heads to pick up anything that is not sand or fine dirt. DO NOT GET if you have carpet it is horrible for anything carpet. The hard floor head is ok and will happily grab sand and fine dirt, just don’t have anything bigger than 1mm or you need to remove heads. Most other vacuums I have owned are better than this and where much cheaper.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Vacuum - Do not buy The pneumatic head on the multi floor extra simply does not work on carpet. You must exert unreasonable effort to move the head back and forth. I’ve contacted Dyson support multiple times and they keep sending me new heads which is not good enough considering the product does not work as advertised (“multi floor” vacuum....not). Very disappointed. Do not buy this vacuum. In fact I won’t purchase a Dyson product again (the hype isn’t worth it) JB Hi Fi have also washed their hands of it. They demo their vacuums with carpet that has the plushness of a cheap door mat (unrealistic comparison for most people).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good suction they say?........Hmmm. The old Miele does it better. Why do you buy a vacuum cleaner?. To suck up the debris that you don't want in your house. I bought the absolute version as it was sold as being the best. I put it up against the old Miele and I am sorry to report that the Miele runs rings around the Dyson. Miele has so much more suction and makes vacuuming so much more efficient than the dyson as its pulling dirt from either side of it on the tiles, whereas the Dyson you need to run over every square inch to make sure you get everything and sometimes twice as the Dyson isn't as powerful. I also received all of these attachments with nowhere to put them. My old Dyson (Prior to the Miele) had places to store them all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a beast! I was initially hesitant to spend so much money on a vacuum but after being super impressed with the dyson stick vac I was gifted, when my sister upgraded, I thought it would be a worthwhile purchase. I'm so glad I invested the money, this thing is an absolute beast!!! Due to renos in the backyard, a huge amount of sand was getting walked through the house on a daily basis, my floors were like a sand pit! This machine ripped through them in no time and got everything up. It took me a quarter of the time, than with my old vacuum and the old machine still wouldn't pick everything up. I found it light and easy to manoeuvre between rooms and furniture too. This is going to be perfect for cleaning up after my two young kids and my two fluffy inside fur babies.
