The Dyson DC41 Animal is an upright vacuum cleaner designed to help remove more dirt, dust, allergens and pet hair from the home. It features Radial Root CycloneTM technology, in which airflows have been remodeled to maximize suction power. The cleaner head on the DC41 Animal self-adjusts to different floor types, so there are no knobs or dials to adjust. It has an active base plate, which creates optimal cleaner head contact, reducing air leaks and retaining more suction power. This technology gives DC41 Animal the strongest suction at the cleaner head. DC41 also features Dyson BallTM technology making it easier to steer closer to edges, and into hard to reach places. Included is the mini turbine head, to clean pet hair and dirt from tight and hard to reach places such as upholstery or in the car. The instant release wand stretches up to 5 times in length for stairs and high reach cleaning, and the clear bin empties at the push of a button. The DC41 Animal has a lifetime washable filter, and there are no bags, belts or filters to buy.
