The DC24 Animal is Dyson's lightest upright machine designed for homes with pets. It features Root CycloneTM technology, Dyson's patented technology that doesn't lose suction power as you vacuum. This compact upright vacuum cleaner also has a motorized brush bar, driven by an independent motor for better cleaning performance. The fingertip brush control allows you to turn the brush bar on or off at the touch of a button. The DC24 has a reversible wand for cleaning awkward areas, and an on-board accessory tool where the nozzle converts to a brush tool for dusting. Complete with a mini turbine head attachment, ideal for removing pet hair from floors, upholstery and awkward spaces.
