Review of Dyson vacuum cleaners
Dyson has built a deserved reputation as one of the most innovative and interesting appliance manufacturers in the world. One of few companies which manage to make household technology exciting, Dyson is renowned for its futuristic designs and ground-breaking features, with its vacuum cleaners universally praised by consumers across the globe.
Dyson was founded by engineer and entrepreneur James Dyson back in 1991, following years of prototype development for his very first cyclonic vacuum cleaner, the DC01. The key features of all Dyson vacuums to this day are the powerful cyclonic suction and bagless design, both of which allow for great longevity, reliability and ease of use. Dyson vacuum cleaners consistently rate highly in Canstar Blue’s annual customer reviews, so find out exactly what you can get from Dyson in Australia.
Dyson vacuum cleaners
Dyson Ball/Small Ball
Arguably the most iconic of Dyson’s current model range, the Dyson Ball packs the iconic spherical roller into an upright vacuum which brings the latest advances in cleaning technology. The cyclonic separation tubes are arranged around the main airflow intake to maximise air pressure, and the clever rolling ball design allows the vacuum to be moved into the tightest of spaces with easy wrist motions.
The cleaning head features a self-adjusting base plate which adjusts to different surfaces, meaning you’ll always have optimal suction, and the brush bar has been upgraded with 25% more power to really release all the dirt from your floor. The Small Ball is simply a more compact version for easier storage, weighing just 5.5kg.
Dyson Big Ball/Cinetic Big Ball
The Big Ball is Dyson’s largest and most powerful vacuum cleaner. With a spherical barrel design which has clever weight distribution to self-right whenever it’s knocked over, the Big Ball has two tiers of radial cyclone generators to provide maximum suction and loosen even microscopic particles. It comes with the clever self-adjusting standard head and several other floor tools to make cleaning easy, whilst the 360-degree extendable handle makes it very ergonomic.
RRP: $499 – $849
Dyson v6/v8 cordless
The Dyson v8 is arguably the company ’s most versatile model. A handheld stick vacuum which combines the compact design of a handheld with the reach and power of a canister, the Dyson v8 incorporates the latest technological advances to justify its premium market position.
A remapped electronic motor and two tiers of cyclone chambers claim to deliver the most powerful suction of any cordless stick vacuum – an impressive achievement. The inbuilt batteries have been upgraded to provide twice the runtime, whilst the addition of several acoustic improvements has resulted in a much quieter machine with no loss of suction.
RRP: $399 – $899
Dyson’s lightweight and compact handheld vacuum, the DC58 claims to bring three times more suction than any competing handheld on the market. The DC58 doesn’t skimp on features despite its size: the front brush bar is motorized, allowing it to dislodge particles in carpets and fabrics, whilst the Boost mode function allows up to 6 minutes of increase suction power for difficult cleaning.
A specialised version of its other handheld cousins, such as the DC58, the DC43H is designed to provide a deep clean for your mattress. The machine utilises Dyson’s latest digital electric motor, cyclonic suction and a motorised, pivoting brush bar to suck up as many parasites and allergens from your sleeping area as possible. Having been designed in conjunction with Dyson’s own microbiologists who cultivate dust mites for testing, the DC43H is one of the best home tools out there for cleaning the spot where you’ll spend roughly third of your entire life.
V6 Car + Boat Extra
As its name suggests, this specialised V6 model is designed to provide the best possible clean for the vehicles in your life. The V6 Car + Boat Extra vacuum includes two tiers of radial cyclones – the same setup as Dyson’s larger upright vacuums – whilst an array of different tools make cleaning your car’s various areas a breeze.
They include two different brushes – one for stubborn dirt and one for soft dust – along with a long crevice tool, extension hose and a motorised head for large surfaces. It even comes with a 12V car charger, meaning you can take it on road trips just about anywhere.
