Bought the Dyson for our new home. it is great picks up everything. Very easy to clean. As its a new place though the filter keeps getting filled with dust so i am hoping this will only happen for the first couple of cleans. The filter is removable and easy to clean under cold water. We find after we do this this suction goes back to normal.
so good so far...
A perfect cleaning machine.
I give the Dyson Cincetic Big ball animal vacuum five stars.
It is strong: withstands all cleaners not used to using vacuums and don't know how to use them.
The numerous heads make it versatile for use on tile, lino, carpet and it reaches into all corners.
Quiet: hardly know the machine is being used.
Absolutely fantastic, cannot fault this product, maybe just a bit heavy for me and storage is an issue, use only 2 times a week, great on wet carpet too, picks up everything ,
I would not considered anything else after purchasing this vacuum , a little expensive for me but worth it
Great vaccum but can be a lot lighter
This is a great vaccum cleaner, powerful and corded. But its heavy weight can be a deterrent for some especially women and elderly people. Some have complained about the flimsy dust bin that can accidentally opened while taking out of the cleaner. The absolute model has every attachments one needs. Hope the next model is a lot lighter, cheaper and better dust bin cover.
This vacuum cleaner was purchased for our worksite and it is simply brilliant.
This vacuum cleaner was purchased by our business manager for our worksite (office) and It is simply brilliant. As we do a lot of work with children, the office gets very messy very quickly, (with everything from glitter to biscuit crumbs and the like) but nothing gets in the way of this nifty little device. It may be small, but it has power behind it, but it is not heavy or difficult to move around. It also stores away quickly and easily, which is a real boon when you are finished up for the day. Great product, quiet, efficient and reliable. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a good quality, reasonably priced, hard wearing product.
The greatest ever !
I needed to change my Old vaacum cleaner and choosed the Dyson. The product is quite expensive but totally the money worth.
The vaacum cleaner comes with a ton of accessories and the quality is just amazing.
It is build that way that if it falls aside the cleaner automatically get back on it's wheels.
The system to empty the dirt is super easy and fast. Finally, there is virtually no maintenance needed as everything is automatic.
This is THE vaacum cleaner !
what a great Machine
I was sceptical , due to the price. but now that I have the Vacuum I will never go for the cheap again.this machine does everything I need..with a bad back this is light weight and the suction is amazing, its gets everything up and my floors look a million dollars. this is a machine I know I will have with me for a long time
Best vacuum I have ever owned.
It is actually a pleasure to vacuum now that I have something that really sucks up the dirt and dust. It thoroughly picks up what my last vacuum failed to do. The cord gets in the way occasionally but that's okay. Vacuums both tiles and carpet, sucks right up to the edges and is just so easy to empty. I am extremely happy with it.
Never owned a Dyson before. Thought that their reputation was pure hype.
Well I was wrong. Easy to use and packs away easily. Perfect for any surface from wood floors to carpet.
A great range of attachments are available and none of them are redundant
Pet hair, dust spills and even a bit of gravel is sucked up in a jiffy
Love using it just keep moving never get stuck on furniture cleans great. Packs away easy and its light to move up and down stairs. Perfect for large or small areas tiles rugs or carpets with the attachments easy to do blinds and skirting boards. Would recommend and would buy again
Love the Tangle Free Turbine head for pet hair!!!
I have hard floors and find the smaller brush head works better than the larger carpet/hard floor combination head as it swivels into tight spots easily and the pivot point is even able to be stood straight up at 180 degrees with no angle and sideways across the head so you can reach into tight places such as sides of fridges and washing machines without changing attachments. The whole unit manoeuvres easily, and rights itself if it tips which I find a large improvement on my old model. The suction is great, although we did have a worrying mome...nt where we lost suction for no apparent reason. Turns out there is a spot where the dust canister and barrel join that is a trap for any solid items picked up (think Lego and bread bag tags). Can be a bit fiddly to clear but once you're aware of where to look it's not a big issue. I love the tangle free turbine head as we have a LOT of cat hair on our couch and floor mats. This tool absolutely zooms through the hair with little effort and doesn't tangle around rollers as they spin horizontally. It is easy and hygienic to empty, although I find the clip that hold the dust canister closed to be a bit flimsy and sometimes difficult to close properly. On a couple of occasions it has come open as I have been removing the canister for emptying, very messy. Also we bought this as a replacement for my old Dyson, and I find the plastic on the new one has a cheap brittle feel in comparison. I would nervous of dropping the components onto a tiled floor as I feel they may crack easily.
Would have been 5 if not for the constant faults
We purchased the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Absolute in late October 2016 from our local Harvey Norman store. Straight out of the box at home, we noticed that the spring mechanism of the ejector piece (ie: red button on the clear bin) on the barrel was broken. Made the trip back to Harvey Norman and got it exchanged without any problems. The sales assistants were not surprised it happened and even mentioned that similar incidents occurred couple of weeks before. Still, we were keen on the product as we needed a replacement vacuum and had heard good...reviews about Dyson vacuums. Brought it home and had a go with it and it was absolutely fantastic. The accessories that came with it were very handy and we were very pleased with the purchase. However, little did we know that this would be the start of our problems. We have not used it much since our purchase, less than 3 times, in the past 6 weeks to be exact as we have not been around much and when we started using it on a regular basis, minor faults started occurring. Firstly, the catch on the clear bin base does not securely fasten onto the clear bin body. Any slight knocks would result in the entire bin base coming loose and unexpectedly emptying the clear bin on the floor rather than in a bag. We did not find it too much of a hassle and thought it was just something we had to be mindful about and could live with it. The next problem we had was the hose. Pulling the vacuum along, as one would naturally do, the hose comes loose from the main unit every now and then, which makes it just a tad inconvenient initially but after 3-4 times, becomes quite unbearable. The final problem we encountered and probably the straw that broke the camel's back was the wheels. On our tenth use of the vacuum, one of the wheels just came off the moment we dragged it along from the storage place. We'll be contacting Dyson soon to organize repairs and hopefully it'll be the end of our vacuuming woes for awhile. The vacuum, when working as it should have been, is an exquisite product with great suction, good accompanying accessories and is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Moreover, the entire vacuuming experience was very pleasant to begin with and got us wanting to vacuum more often but gradually declined as the faults appeared. Would have loved to see it last more than 8 weeks before having the need to send it in for repairs and hopefully we would not have to keep sending it in or we might just decide to give up on it altogether and go with other alternatives.
A great unit that's easy to use and easy to clean out, much lighter than our previous vacuum
Tile and carpet,
Follows you nice and easily and is just so light, much better than othe units that we have had in the past.
I would recommend it to anybody,. Well priced and a great looking unit. We needed to get a new one as our old one was a Bissell and it was just to damn heavy for my wife to handle, we are much happier with our new Dyson.
Questions & Answers
Hi there. We are in Christchurch New Zealand. Our Dyson cinematic has great suction for varying periods of time. Then there is a noise like something popping or a membrane being sucked in, and the suction dies almost totally. This can be almost as soon as you turn it on or can be after 5-6 minutes - seldom longer. The dust container is never very full in fact sometimes it happens when there is next to nothing in it, other times when there is a small amount in the dust container. Can you please advise. It has not always been like this. There is no obvious obstruction anywhere.

What is weight of Absolute Barrel vacuum cleaner?
Annie, I am not sure about the Absolute as I was reviewing the Allergy...I am not sure if the barrels are the same and its only the attachments that make them different. The only thing I can say, is that they pull around easily and if they do tumble over, they actually turn themselves the right way up. But as to the weight, I have no idea sorry.
Will a Dyson pick up tusks of wool which are being shed from our new wool carpet. If so.which model should I buy ?
Hi Julie here I cannot say whether my Dyson big Ball would do this as I have not had such a problem as I have an older wool 85%nyon15% mix if I remember rightly but to see how well this DYSON collects up my beautiful fluffy cat fur and of course any garden fodder he brings in having sat in the garden bed for some time. I can however recommend the
www.dyson.com.au/support an online service which solves according to Dyson 80% of the customers issues by using this online service.
I cannot say directly onlythat I am extremely delighted with my Dysonbigball and as I have a physical disability now due to Rheumatoid Arthritis and Early Onset Parkinson's disease I find this product with all of the attachments great.
Dyson Team ..Dyson
Thank you for your query. Any Dyson machine should be able to help with picking up fibres being shed from the carpet. However, a machine with a spinning brush bar will work more efficiently for this purpose.
I would encourage you to email email@example.com, and we'll be happy to find t he right Cinetic Big Ball machine for you.
