The question of which vacuum cleaner to purchase is essentially one of personal choice. It will depend on the type of flooring you have in your home, whether you or a member of your household suffers with allergies, or if you have any pets.
You might also want to think about ongoing costs during the lifetime of your vacuum cleaner. Vacuums that use bags to trap dirt and dust clog up over time and restrict airflow, leading to a loss of suction. Over five years you’ll need to buy, on average, 40 replacement bags and five
filters. Not to mention the hassle of replacing them each time. With a Dyson vacuum there are no bags, no extra costs and no loss of suction.
Dyson machines all have patented Root Cyclone™ technology, which uses centrifugal forces to spin dust and dirt out of the air and straight into the bin. And all Dyson upright and cylinder vacuum cleaners come with a 5 year guarantee – parts and labour.
Upright or Cylinder?
Do you prefer to push or pull? Upright vacuum cleaners have a handle at waist height, and are pushed around the home in front of the user. They’re great for cleaning carpets and larger homes, and also typically come with a hose and attachments to help get into awkward spaces or clean
Cylinder vacuums are generally quite compact and lightweight. The main unit is pulled behind the user, and the cleaner head is located at the end of the hose, which is good for getting into awkward spaces and cleaning stairs.

Wheels or a ball?
Vacuums with fixed wheels only move in straight lines. DC24 and DC25 have Ball™ technology. They can turn on the spot, manoeuvring around obstacles and furniture with ease.
What about pets?
Dyson upright vacuums all have a rotating brush bar, helping to agitate the carpet pile and remove more embedded dust and pet hair. Dyson Animal vacuums also come with a Mini turbine head to remove pet hair from upholstery, stairs and awkward spaces.
Storage and weight
If space is at a premium, DC24 is one of Dyson’s lightest and most compact upright vacuums at just 5.4kg. Its handle compresses to make it even smaller and easier to store. For larger homes, DC33 is a full-size but lightweight upright vacuum cleaner. It has a Telescope Reach™ wand that extends to 4.8m with the press of a button, to clean stairs and high places.
Pull: Cylinder Vacuum Cleaners
Dyson cylinder vacuums come in small, medium and large.
For larger homes…
DC32 Animal is a full-size cylinder vacuum. With its two litre clear bin it’s ideal for larger homes, but still sits neatly on the stairs as you clean them.
…and smaller homes
DC26 weighs just 5.3kg and fits on a sheet of A4 paper. It has all the advantages of a smaller, lighter cleaner without compromising cyclone performance. Every angle and dimension has been engineered to make a small cyclone as efficient as a big one.
DC22 Multi Floor is a mid-size cylinder vacuum, with a Telescope Wrap™ system. Its hose and wand compress and wrap for easier storage.
Portable Dyson power wherever you need it
Only Dyson cordless vacuums have powerful, constant suction to quickly remove dirt and dust inside the home or car – from carpets to car seats, and skirting boards to counter tops. They have the same Root Cyclone™ technology as our full-sized vacuums. The lithium-ion battery releases charge evenly with no drop-off, and recharges up to three times faster than others. The charger plugs straight into the battery, attached to or separate from the machine. Dyson cordless vacuums come with a 2 year guarantee. Parts and labour.
Portable Dyson power… for quick clean-ups
DC30 is a handheld vacuum that weighs just 1.2kg. When fully charged it provides 6 minutes of high constant suction. Or if you’re looking for something with a longer run-time or more power, DC34 has 15 minutes of constant suction, and 6 minutes in boost mode for more difficult tasks.
Portable power… for pet owners
DC34 Animal is a handheld vacuum with a motorised brush bar, making it ideal for homes with pets, and for cleaning pet hair from the inside of cars.
Portable power… for high, low and awkward places
DC35 Multi Floor is a cordless vacuum cleaner for every floor type. It has a lightweight detachable wand and can reach high, low and awkward places.
With its own docking station and 15 minutes of high constant suction, it means that you don’t always have to get your full-sized vacuum out.
Engineered cleaning tools
Every Dyson vacuum has a range of tools designed for it. Each one removes dirt wherever it is. Dyson engineers put as much thought into developing Dyson tools as they do Dyson vacuums. A poorly-designed tool can waste suction, fail to remove dust and dirt and cause overall performance of the machine to drop. Check the Dyson website before you buy to make sure that the tool you are purchasing is compatible with your Dyson machine.
The Up top tool twists into different positions and angles for easy high-reach cleaning. And the Flexi-crevice tool extends and flexes to fit into awkward gaps.
It’s ideal for cleaning between furniture.
The Stubborn dirt brush has stiff bristles for cleaning mud and dried-in dirt on a huge range of surfaces and Dyzolv™ spot cleaner cleans spots and spills on carpets and rugs.
The Mattress tool removes dirt and allergens from mattresses and upholstery quickly and easily and the Soft dusting brush has soft bristles for gentle dusting of objects like lighting and blinds.
