Dyson DC31 Animal Handheld Vacuum Cleaner Review

Dyson DC31 Animal

The Dyson DC31 Animal is the most powerful handheld with no loss of suction, and one of the latest generation of Dyson handhelds. It comes with a motorised brush bar for powerful pet hair removal, making it ideal for homes with pets and for cleaning pet hair from the inside of cars. The dual power mode on the Dyson DC31 Animal gives 10 minutes of constant high suction for large cleans, or 6 minutes at 70% higher suction for stubborn dirt.

The Dyson DC31 Animal Handheld Vacuum Cleaner comes with a combination accessory tool with wide debris nozzle to pick up crumbs and large particles, which converts to a brush tool for dusting delicate surfaces and computer keyboards. The DC31 also includes a crevice tool for cleaning skirting boards, picture rails and in-between furniture. The 22.2V lithium ion battery in the DC31 Animal recharges up to three times faster than others.

The DC31 Animal is powered by the new Dyson digital motor, which is smaller, lighter and more power-efficient than conventional electric motors.

Presently Amazon are offering some of the best prices available for a comprehensive range of handhelds.

Dyson DC31 Animal Reviews


We found quite a number of reviews online for the Dyson DC31 Animal Handheld Vacuum Cleaner and virtually all, 93%, of the reviewers gave this product extremely high marks. The main selling feature of the DC31 is removing pet hairs and it appears to have that down pat. Between the new very powerful digital motor which provides the suction and the specially designed pet hair removal brush the DC31 Animal appears to do what Dyson says it will and by all accounts does it well. Of course, this feature will be attractive to not just pet owners but any home that has girls with long hair!

The two power settings were commented on quite a bit – the option offers a degree of versatility and control and especially allows prolonged battery life with constant use up to 10 minutes on the lower setting (which seems to be satisfactory for most tasks.)
