What are the differences between Dyson's UK corded upright vacuum range?

Hello Dyson Community,

Please can you help.

I am looking at the Dyson Ball Animal Origin vs the Dyson Ball Animal and had a question to ask.

Does one have more suction power than the other? If not what are the reasons for the £50 price difference?

I can see that the Origin model has a longer cord length, is heavier with a larger capacity, but is that all? Is the filtration different?

Before I purchase my next Dyson I would really appreciate your feedback on this?

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Hi @Jhea8,

Welcome to the Dyson Community! 

The current Dyson Ball™ variants are very similar corded upright vacuums, differing mostly in colourways, and the additional accessories they come with.

You’ve already mentioned two of the main differences in features - the Dyson Ball™ Animal Origin, Dyson Ball™ Animal Multi Floor and Dyson Ball™ Animal Complete have have a longer cord and a larger clear bin to hold more dirt. They also have a telescopic wand for reaching up high and down low, and this is articulated to reduce strain on your wrist while you’re cleaning. These additional features means they do weigh a little more than the Dyson Ball™ Animal, at 7.4kg compared to 7kg. To answer your question, filtration and performance are the same for all Dyson corded upright vacuums in our UK range.

I hope this helps - more details on these machines are available on our website: https://www.dyson.co.uk/vacuum-cleaners/uprights/ball-animal


Thank you Jack for providing some clarity on this.

With that I will purchase the Dyson Ball Animal Origin upright vacuum. 


Kind Regards



I have two further questions related to these products: 1. Are both the Dyson Ball Animal Origin and Dyson Ball Animal acoustically engineered to eliminate annoying tones? 2. Is it possible to remove the motorbar cleaner head from both these products (e.g. for storage)?

Thank you 

Best regards,
