I am proud to do a review on this cleaner, as I have the use of one at work. It uses the Root Cyclone technology, to lift dirt from deep inside carpets and doormats. This one is the DC24, which costs a whopping Â£300, or as near as Damn it. I am sure you are thinking this is a great deal of money, but I can honestly say I feel it is worth the money. Having said that, I didn't have to shell out for it.
The Dyson cleaner, was named after it's inventor, Sir James Dyson, who is British, and was born in 1947, and his idea of using "Cyclonic separation", was though up in the late '70's. The idea of a Cyclone effect being that the dirt swirls around the outside of the bin, by centrifugal force, meaning it will not clog filters.
The cleaner is an upright, and has the "Football" type wheel, this really does make it easy to push and to steer. The bin itself is some 2.7 litres, which does not mean a lot, but it takes a lot of dirt before requiring being emptied. When it is full, it is a very simply quick job to deposit the contents into the rubbish.
I use this in a commercial premises, and the only complaint I have is, the length of the mains lead. I measured this at just under thirty feet, which I feel sure is ample for any house, but it is annoying having to keep changing sockets when doing long corridors.
I find that the noise is quite acceptable, even after twenty minutes. The machine is easy to move, goes under chairs, and takes up little room when not in use. I am also happy with the quality of the materials, mainly constructed from Plastic, this is easy to wipe clean, and will withstand knocks and bumps.
All in all, I can thoroughly recommend this cleaner.
