Title: DC41MKII or DC55 or Small Ball
Post by: NWDave on February 21, 2021, 06:36:45 PM
First of all my apologies to the sites moderator - I have posted this on the wrong thread (Im new here!) so please delete the other one and again my apologies!

Hello everyone - I guess getting straight down to it as the title suggests - which is the better of the three models for us to consider to replace our current DC25 machine?! We have a mixture of carpets and tiled floors with the carpets being your standard type of affair! Naturally like most people, one would assume its all about suction but after reading some threads its clear the brush rollers are equally important for the carpets.

Our outgoing DC25 has all the original paperwork including instruction booklets and also all of the accessories in the bag that looks like it came with the machine from new, which if anyone has a machine for us to upgrade to, we would be happy to have a deal with this machine going back the other way. I will say the DC25 is in working order with only a catch missing from the extension pole that locks in the attachments. However it appears the better half had been running the hoover without the top filter for 3 months or so (she threw the old filter out and forgot to replace the thing) so I'm actually shocked that its kept going and still works even today!

But the time has come to retire this machine for an upgrade. We want to run with a corded upright as in our opinion you don't get the same power and 'weight' from a hand held cordless when hoovering and of course the constraints in battery life. I do however respect views on cordless vacuums that owners have - so please be gentle on that moot point!!

I have noted the advice on other brands but the boss wants to stay with Dyson - so on the basis that a happy wife equals a happy life whom am I to argue!

So troops over to you - I look forward to replies and recommendations on which will be the best model to suit our needs, from a short list of the DC41MKII or the DC55 or the Small Ball, which being honest has derived from reading the excellent posts on this site and I wanted to gauge your input as to which one should we or I be aiming for!

PS - We also have a DC16 again with all its original paperwork should anyone wish to have a deal with the above upgrade which was in use until recently until the battery gave up the ghost!

A huge thank you in advance and please keep up the excellent work!

Hi Dave; welcome to the forum, hope you enjoy it here.
Now out of those three models you have mentioned, only the Small Ball Allergy is still currently available, and can be had for the bargain price of under £200. A great choice if you ask me, it will be noticeably quieter than your DC25, and should give better performance on both carpets & hard flooring. Backed up with a 5 year guarantee. Thatís the best value choice to be honest.
The other two models you mentioned, the DC41 & DC55, were discontinued approx 3 years ago in favour of the Small Ball (or ďLight BallĒ as it was initially called). So if you did go for either of those, youíd be looking at a second hand or refurbished machine.
If this is to be the case, make sure to choose your seller wisely. The DC41/DC55 is an immensely complicated machine for someone who is inexperienced with taking these apart. It may be listed as ďrefurbishedĒ but that might just mean a wiped out bin and a washed filter. There could be any number of issues within. Make sure to buy from someone who offers back up, and generally speaking, you get what you pay for- (a £40 ďrefurbishedĒ DC55 will most definitely be asking for trouble). Speak to Manchester Vacs Direct if you want a machine that has been reconditioned properly, with proper guarantee and service.
Hope this helps Dave, give us a shout if you have any more questions!

dysondestijl  - once again thank you ever so much for taking the time in getting back to me!

Could not agree more with what you have advised within your post!

So with your words ringing in my ears and assuming I have the choice of solid refurbished machines - which one is going to perform best out of the 3 models (Suction, Aggregation and Reliability)?

I will say I dont expect anything to last forever and accept to have to service or fix things from time to time but I also know that some models are built better than others!

Once again thank you in advance for any views and advice that will steer my purchase!

Hi Dave,
The DC41 MK2 and DC55 are the same machines spec wise, just finished in different colours, so thereís nothing really to choose between there.
Those models use the same tool fitting as your old DC25 so if you wanted to hang on to your spare tools, they may come in useful.
The Small Ball Allergy however uses a different tool fitting so your existing tools will not be compatible. However, it is a quieter machine, a touch more solid / better built if you ask me, doesnít have the same flimsy soleplate as the DC41/55, and it gives all round decent performance.
Thatíd be my choice.
I see you are also contemplating refurbishing your existing DC25. If you decide to go down this route, a new brushroll, brush end cap (yours may look ok but believe me a new one will make the machine run quieter), new filters, and new cyclone gasket are almost essential, but can be had for a very reasonable price, so bear those in mind. It will buy you a couple more years out of the machine Iíd expect. The DC25s do suffer with slightly weak brushroll pivot wiring looms and sticky hose changeover valves, so look out for those cropping up in future.
Hope this helps?

If the main motor on the DC25 sounds okay as it has been run with no filter, Iíd been looking at refurbishing that personally. A good DC25 remains a very good machine.

The DC41/55 as mentioned above are OK, but likely to have issues if they come from a questionable or unknown seller (donít use eBay, FB etc). Weíve never sold the DC41 online for reasons of guarantee. We sell very few refurbished Dysons online nowadays (by choice), but the ones we do sell are models that we know donít come back. If you want one of those, Iíd get one from dysondestijl above if he has one, he knows what he is doing.

The small ball is a facelifted DC50. Theyíre not bad but they are smaller than your DC25 so you should regard them as a bit lighter duty. The newer Light Ball is a facelifted DC40. Not bad machines but they wonít last as long as the DC25. Iíve got one new one @ £199.

If you want a newer ball Dyson, consider the DC75. I find them quite robust and we donít get that many of them in for repairs. Others may disagree. As usual, you need a good seller who has rebuilt it properly.

For me, the best Dyson is the DC14 or DC33. Built like a tank and go forever. As they are long discontinued, you need a good seller who has rebuilt it properly.

The newer Dysons tend not to be as robust as the older ones. Many people believe that to be built in obsolescence. Thatís one reason many people moved over to Sebo. And why we started selling Sebo maybe six years ago alongside Dyson.

Iíll tell you what I have at home: a now discontinued Sebo X4 black Pet with the Boost button. Itís about five years old and works as new. I expect Iíll still have it in 10 years. If not 20. I canít imagine wanting anything else. Itís one of those products that ticks all the boxes, like a Range Rover V8, a Rolex, a tin of Heinz beans or an iPhone. You consider everything else and then get one of those. Iíve got two or three of them we havenít refurbished yet. They do £199 fully refurbished with extra hoses and tools as supplied when new.

MVacs - thank you for such a comprehensive reply - my apologies for not getting back sooner but ended up in A&E last night - so not the way I envisaged spending my evening!!!

So the 'Boss' wants a Dyson Ball - I did my best to convert her to Sebo but the lady ain't for turning!

After a read of your response and speaking to the better half - it now looks like a refurb of our DC25 or upgrade to the DC75... She really wants a change from the DC25 so that may be going... along with the DC16.

Next question is - will our existing tools work with the DC75 and the final question is around carpet cleaning performance... Suction and Aggregation - which is the most powerful out of these two models i.e. which one of those machines is going to lift more out of the carpet piles?

Once that is known its a case of sourcing a refurbished machine/ refurbing our own - anyone have one? The other thing is any advice or pointers in part ex-ing ours the other way?

Once again thanks for getting back to me and know you have been a great source of information!

Yes, it's the same fitting.


The small ball is a facelifted DC50

I believe he's on about this machine. Basically Light Ball with different tools.

I honestly can't believe you said that about Cinetic.  :o Don't they leak dust into motor and post motor filters even with normal household dust?
Title: Re: DC41MKII or DC55 or Small Ball
Post by: NWDave on February 23, 2021, 09:53:25 PM
Halcyon - my thanks to you also for your input!

Thanks ref the fitting of our tools!

Yes that's the Small Ball I was referring to - one of the other regular legends thats posts - swears by them although I realise this is an emotive topic and is subject to personal opinions, however in my view there are no better people to ask than those that fix and sell em!

Ref the DC75 I had read that somewhere else in this site that they leak dust into motor and post motor filters even with normal household dust. So thats cast a doubt but note they are the newest of the bunch and well built?


So its back to the drawing board??!!  :reading:


So to sum up I am specifically after a powerful corded, upright 'Ball' machine with good suction, as naturally that has to be a factor and then as I have learned it has to have a good brush as that helps get the dirt out of the carpets!
Id like a buy reliable model - something that will last, but I do except that having to purchase a used/reconditioned machine that it may need some attention/ looking after from time to time and being fairly handy I am happy to get down and dirty with the machine with my torx drive set with of course the help of you chaps!

So sorry to be a pain but having CDO I want to make sure I buy the right one!

Dyson has a 35 days return policy if you're not happy.

I do believe that things last longer if looked after and let's be honest, who looks after vacuums?

Sebos might have a better build quality, but I've used X series and Felix and find them not very user friendly. X series has a brushroll that cannot be turned off ever. Anniying when you vacuum sofa or anything with hose. Felix has really short hose and despite its flexible neck, it doesn't move as easy as Dyson Ball. You twist the handle but head doesn't move. It's a different kind of swivel.

Anyway, newest Small Ball/Light Ball would be my advice.
It can be a bit tricky if you've got low profile furniture. Dyson doesn't provide much tools to vacuum under furniture with this model. There's only hard floor tool.. You can always get an adapter and use your old tools with it.
It does have noticeably less hose suction but cleans well.

Considering all of the above,
I think either a refurb of your DC25, or a new Light Ball / Small Ball Allergy is the way to go for you. The DC75 pretty heavy as they go. Good machines and one of the more solid of the 2012-2017 range, but heavy. Heavier than your DC25, it would be quite a change from what youíre used to.
I genuinely think given everything you have discussed, a Light Ball / Small Ball Allergy will suit you down to the ground. Theyíve been on the market for just under 4 years and are proving pretty reliable thus far, I sell them from my shop and typically donít have any trouble with them. Obviously nothing is perfect but they donít suffer from any of the usual issues of Dysons of previous generations- the brush bars donít get rattly, the wiring yolks donít break, the brushes donít fall out, and the cyclone unit is pretty effective, so constant filter washing isnít necessary. I think youíll appreciate the upgrade. Give it some thought!

dysondestijl once more thank you for that advice and time taken in getting back to me! I know I am being a pain!!

Dyson really dont help themselves with rebranding the different models!!

I think I have found the Small Ball here https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/home-appliances/floorcare/vacuum-cleaners/dyson-small-ball-allergy-upright-bagless-vacuum-cleaner-iron-10200135-pdt.html

I guess my CDO kicking in I have become obsessed almost with a suction... oh errr matron... but in a nutshell the Small Ball (am I correct in saying this is the replacement for the DC50?) produces 90aw where as other earlier models produce 240aw? That has to be some kind of typo (I cant find the dam link now)?

Anyway I have also spotted the DYSON UP24 Ball but having looked through the excent guide to all Dyson models elsewhere in this site I cant see much info on it or where is sits in the pecking order (likely I am not looking in the right place!)
https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/home-appliances/floorcare/vacuum-cleaners/dyson-ball-animal-2-upright-bagless-vacuum-cleaner-grey-red-10178718-pdt.html?intcmpid=display~RR
This one enjoys 92aw?


I know the brush bar is key too now thanks to this forum and another point made is the weight of the machine - well as long as its not like hauling a bag of cement around I am not adverse to considering all options - the main point for me is getting as much out of the carpets as possible!

So what are your thoughts on AW comparisons and the other question is I dont really want to go too narrow with the brush bar which appears the small ball has derived from the DC50?

Thanks in advance!

Post by: dysondestijl on February 24, 2021, 03:18:54 PM
Dave, there are two versions of the Small Ball. One WAS derived from the DC50, and should be avoided, unless you just want a lightweight upstairs vac. Which is not what youíre looking for Iím sure.
The other version of the small ball is the Small Ball Allergy, which is not a DC50. Far more robust / far better suction. Thatís the one to get. Itís available from all retailers currently for £199.
Title: Re: DC41MKII or DC55 or Small Ball
Post by: NWDave on February 24, 2021, 04:04:10 PM
Thanks dysondestijl - so to be clear this is the one you recommended and is not a descendent from the DC50 - out of intrest was it a new model from the rest of the range? https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/home-appliances/floorcare/vacuum-cleaners/dyson-small-ball-allergy-upright-bagless-vacuum-cleaner-iron-10200135-pdt.html

Just so I can report back - what is this machine? https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/home-appliances/floorcare/vacuum-cleaners/dyson-ball-animal-2-upright-bagless-vacuum-cleaner-grey-red-10178718-pdt.html?intcmpid=display~RR
I cant find where its derived from or where it sits in the Dyson range but as I say its has marginally better suction! Could this also be a model to consider and if not why?

Once I have that intel I can report into HQ as its her money, as I was reminded of this morning (which is where the second link has come from.... lol)

That then wraps up my question - other than if my old machines have any value?
The DC25 still works but needs a good service and comes with all the original paperwork and the posh bag of tools assuming I cant use them on the small ball as advised?
Then the DC16 which was working until the battery gave up - again we have the original charger and the paperwork, infact I think we also have the tools for that too some of which have not been used much if at all!

Best wishes :tiphat:

Dyson Ball Animal 2 is basically the same machine as Light Ball or Small Ball Allergy. Comes with a turbine head that you can use to vacuum under furniture. The turbine head cannot be used on Light Ball or Small Ball Allergy as it has a slightly different connection.
It's a bit heavier, has a bigger bin and longer cord. Also wand set up is a bit different than on Small Ball/Light Ball. Works the same as it does on DC25 if I'm right. You need to pull whole wand, then you get a wand connected to hose with a handle. I prefer Small Ball's set up. It's just quicker when you need to use hose..

It's literally first Dyson I've used. Picks up absolutely brilliantly despite lower suction. We only sold it as it was too big for our house and I didn't like hose set up.

Halcyon - Thats sooooo spooky as I just read one of your first posts back in 2019 (I think it was) where you had just got the aforementioned (Dyson Ball Animal 2 - have I understood that right?) and became concerned about dust appearing behind the bin!!! Someone said it was due to static which is what I experience each time I touch the hoover after its been used on a carpet... great excuse to get out of the chore... just need to think of one for painting!!!

Im not too worried about how the hand attachments go together its all about the performance and the other half is shall we say pecking my head...!

Forgive me but I am sure I read somewhere that the DC55 and Dyson Ball Animal2 has more suction than the Small Ball or have I gotten that the wrong way round?
Where you said It's literally first Dyson I've used. Picks up absolutely brilliantly despite lower suction. We only sold it as it was too big for our house and I didn't like hose set up. - what were you referring to? If I understood it, your machine was the DBA2 so what were you comparing it to? Now I am confused!

Ill do some more reading but at least we are down to 2 models now although she is reading up about the DC55... its driving me batty but thanks for the support lads... at least I am not alone...

You will note my project was the Hoover for the cars etc... covered in the other thread... My Charles will be arriving on Friday... got a heck of a deal without driving you lot nuts at the barrage of questions!!!

My thanks to each and every one of you... I owe you all a pint!

This is what has been driving the questions around suction;

https://www.overstock.com/guides/dyson-vacuum-buying-guide

As I pointed out - the AW figures need to be checked as I have seen 90AW quoted for the DC75 but here its rated at 180AW?

Bonkers -

Post by: dysondestijl on February 24, 2021, 11:47:01 PM
Dave, donít worry yourself with air watts figures. If you feel the suction of your DC25, and then feel the suction level of a new Small Ball Allergy, Iím almost certain youíll find them the same. Air watts cannot be measured accurately. To put it in to perspective, A lot of the old vacuum cleaners that were built to last, went on for years and did a damn good job of carpet cleaning, actually had very little air watts at all. Whereas a lot of more modern cleaners from inferior brands such as Vax and Hoover, had very high Air Watts but were total rubbish- Itís not an accurate measure of performance.
Ref the Ball Animal 2, as said above, floor performance will be the same as the S/B/Allergy, but it ďfeaturesĒ a more convoluted wand system, which adds weight and makes it quite uncomfortable on the wrist. Not worth the upgrade if you ask me.

Hi!
Thought I'd give my opinion of some Dyson models here
The Dc25 whilst it's an okay machine, the newer ball models will outperform it due to their improved engineering.

I have a small ball allergy up22 and dc55. Both are excellent machines. The dc55 is better than the dc25 in my opinion in terms of reliability and cleaning power on both carpets and hard floors. It has a spring loaded soleplate which means it'll focus the suction into your carpet for a really good deep clean and the brush vibrates the carpet more than the dc25 too so it'll pull out more deep down grit. The cyclone catches can break if you're rough on them though and the wand pops out if you make a sharp turn to the left aggressively

The small ball allergy is almost better than the dc55 except the hose suction isn't as strong and the bin is slightly smaller. However, despite that it's got a VERY quiet motor, you can have a conversation over it! The cleaner head also has a wider brushbar so it'll resist hair tangles better rhan the dc25 and 55

It also performs better on hard floors as it won't push large debris around. If you have very thick shaggy carpets then it's the best choice because the wide diameter brushbar digs in better than the older models. It has no gaps in between the brushbar bristles so you're getting full wide coverage and there's no belt lines and soleplate bars so with a Dc25 you may have to go over the same area twice, with the small ball allergy one pass is all it takes

The carpet grooming ability is also rhe best because of the many bristles it has. It has plastic bumps in the brushbar so when the carpet gets sucked I to the head, the plastic beaters beat the carpet for a deep clean to get out the embedded dirt and grit

It's ironed out the flaws of the dc55 and has a reinforced wand so is more sturdy and the wand doesn't pop out when making sharp 90 degree turns

Oh and PS since there are no pipes around the ball like the dc25, the maneuverability is a lot more agile

The mini small ball up15 is decent but quite noisy

Post by: Parwaz7862 on February 25, 2021, 10:51:33 PM
PS Don't worry about airwatts, the small ball allergy has 90 airwatts and the dc55 has 198 airwatts(small ball allergy has less than half the suction of the dc55)  however due to the better engineering the small ball allergy cleans better and sticks to the floor better on + mode than the dc55

Parwaz7862... so tell me - what do you know about Dysons then!!!  :reading:
I have seen some contributions from you throughout the site and you must eat product manuals for breakfast!! :coffee:

Once again thank you for a very comprehensive reply and to make my reply to you as short as possible as many will be shaking their heads by now  :'( - ruling out the DC75 and the DC55 now leaves the Small Ball Allergy and the Dyson Ball Animal2.

Now I believe both are newer machines and forgive me but from the info I have seen;

Small Ball Allergy = UP22
Dyson Ball Animal2 = UP24

Do I have that right?

I am much more clear on the benefits of the UP22 - Dyson Small Ball Allergy... so what's the story with the other?

Now apologies in advance as I may well have missed that others have discussed this machine already but because the names and model numbers of these machines can become quite confusing to the student (me) life has taught me to ask more questions, if not sure - no matter how embarrassed I might feel!

So last words to you and I look forward to seeing what you think too and hope the thread will help others in the same position!

PS in terms of carpets we have just your normal Wool twist, Beige carpets - no rugs and then we have tiled floors - that's not to say we may change them sometime in the future.
Title: Re: DC41MKII or DC55 or Small Ball
Post by: Parwaz7862 on February 26, 2021, 01:26:41 AM
Aha, thank you very much! I believe if you're passionate about something you wanna know all about it!

The ball animal 2 upright is the bigger version of the small ball allergy. They both have the same power and performance and are almost identical machines except the ball animal 2 offers the following benefits;
Bigger dust capacity
Metal wand for stability
Redesigned wand and hose vs the up22 so the metal wand also has a pivoting neck which reduces strain on the hose end
The hose is longer
Better tool storage allowing you to store the tangle free turbine head which the up22 doesnt include unless you get a Dyson animal
And a low reach floortool for under beds etc where the main vacuums ball won't fit


Both vacuums have a 5 year guarantee so you're all good, so £300 ball animal 2 and you get 5 years minimum out of it that's £60 a year which isn't a lot for a vacuum. Because cheap disposable inferior vacuums break after a year or two and cost more than that

Incase you change your flooring in the future these are the Dyson models to get from the up22 and 24 because my dc55 doesn't work on my new thick bedroom carpet whereas with the up22 I can just adjust the setting on the head and it works! The dc55 would suck down too hard and jam the brushbar so it's a good job you narrowed that model out

Outstanding and thank you - any negatives in your view re the UP24 Dyson Ball Animal2?

Also having looked at the sites Full Dyson vacuum model number list where does the UP24 sit - thats just me being a nerd!!!!

Ill be then on the look out for a machine which quells this thread - but beware... ill be back - as I fancy having a stab at repairing the DC16 and DC25 we have to get rid as there are some selling still now for reasonable money!   :grinn:

Post by: Parwaz7862 on February 26, 2021, 09:07:17 AM
The only negatives I can think of really of the UP24 is that the wand is a bit narrower in diameter compared to the UP22 and that the weight of the UP22 is lighter than the UP24

where does the UP24 sit in the excellent guide the site admin has in the top right of the home page labelled 'Dyson vacuum model number list. With photos'?

MVacs - does that mean I have to put a post in the suggestion thread...!!!  :bow:

Not a bad shout for a newbie!!! :biglaugh:

Seriously though your list is far more informative than anything else out there - I bet loads of people use it as there are so many machines for sale and it can be a minefield as to which one to buy - I know someone had this same issue recently!! :chuckle:
