Dyson Animal vacuums feature Dyson's patented root technology. The particular technology generates centrifugal forces 150,000 times the force of gravity, effectively removing various pet hairs throughout the home. The Dyson Animal vacuum bin should be emptied whenever debris inside the bin reaches the "Max" level. The vacuum's washable filter should be removed and cleaned every six months for optimal performance. Always unplug the vacuum before servicing.

Press the red button atop the handle to cause the hatch on the base of the bin to open. Shake the bin inside the garbage can or bag to remove all dust and other refuse.
