Dyson DC65 Multi Floor, Animal & Animal Complete Comparison

Are you wanting to invest in the most powerful vacuum cleaner ever! However, understandably are a bit confused between all the different versions and modifications of the Dyson DC65. Here, we will quickly and simply clear up all the differences for you -- 'nice and simple' -- between the DC65 Multi floor, DC65 Animal and DC65 Animal Complete.

From which, you can easily identify which is the right model for you.

Basically all you really have to know is that the differences comes in both their actual appearance (silver, purple and pink) as well as the attachments & accessories that come with each respective version of the Dyson DC65 vacuum cleaner.

Then from the quick table above we can see that the attachments that Dyson offer with each version of the DC65 differ and this explains their difference in price between one another. The DC65 Complete is roughly $650 usually whereas the DC65 Multi floor comes in at $500 -- then the DC65 Animal lies somewhere in between -- but it obviously depends where you shop (and in truth you should be able to find them much cheaper than the official prices that I have just listed).

Accessories & Attachments (understanding the table)

Combination & Stair Tools: As we can see all versions of the DC65 come with the standard basic set of Dyson tools: the combination tool which is basically a crevice tool (to clean in between and around awkward and tight gaps) which has the ability to double up with a brush nozzle on the end of it to perform powered dusting & the stair tool that is designed with straight and sharp edges for efficient cleaning (I have to say it works very well on carpeted and wooden stairs).

Tangle Free Turbine & Soft Dusting Tool: now we start to see some separation between the different versions. You can see that the Animal & Complete come with the tangle free turbine tool & soft dusting brush tool whereas the multi-floor doesn't. It is is the highly regarded pet hair turbine tool that gives the name Animal to the latter two versions.

An extremely effective device that can be used on all floor types to remove pet hair quickly. They also come with a soft dusting tool (that has extra long soft nylon bristles integrated) for you to clean delicate surface areas with such as tv screens and ornaments etc. things you basically don't want scratching.

Multi Angle Brush, Stiff Brush, Tool Bag & Zorb Powder: these four additional aspects are what have been added to make the DC65 Animal a DC65 Animal Complete essentially.

  • Multi angle brush tool -- this attachment allows you to clean high and around awkward surfaces such as the top of cabinets and shelves.
  • Stiff brush bar -- a brush tool that is fitted with tough and short nylon bristles. Essentially it is designed to loosen and flick up deep dug in dirt within carpets.
  • Tool Bag -- a designer bag to keep all your additional Dyson gear in.
  • Zorb maintenance powder -- a special powder that can remove stains without the need to get the floor wet.

Apart from all the above factors the Dyson DC65 versions are they exact same. There is no difference in cleaning suction power (all are 245 Air Watts). There is no difference in cleaning cyclone technology (all of them have the very latest Radial Root Cyclone technology integrated). They are all the same size and design (they come with the featured Dyson ball integrated offer the same dimensions, weight and cord length) and so on.

They are all principally the same model of vacuum cleaner it is just the extras that come with the Animal in comparison to the multi floor and the Animal complete in comparison to the Animal. But, no one is better than the other.

Moreover if you find that you want one of the tools that the DC65 Complete has to offer e.g. the stiff bristle brush but not of the extras, you can buy it separately and save yourself all that extra cash. Then again, because you are buying in bundle with the DC65 Complete you are saving 'overall'.
