Dyson claims new upright vacuum cleaner will never lose suctionBut will the new Dyson be worth £460?
08 January 2015
Dyson has unveiled a new upright vacuum cleaner featuring Dyson cyclone technology that eliminates the need to change or wash filters.
A year on from the launch of its first Cinetic cylinder vac - the Dyson Cinetic DC54 - Dyson has followed up with an upright model featuring the same technology, which Dyson claims is the first upright model to never lose suction.
We have just tested the Dyson Cinetic DC54. Find out the Which? verdict on Cinetic technology by following the link or visit our vacuum cleaner reviews to see how it compares to other popular models.
New Dyson Cinetic Big Ball 'never loses suction'
Dyson’s Cinetic models use the latest Dyson cyclone technology with oscillating tips. These vibrate at high speed – 350 times a second - which Dyson says helps to separate even fine dust from the air, so that the cyclones and filter never clog.
Because of this, Dyson says it is the only model that can truly claim no loss of suction. It claims to have tested it with the equivalent of 10 years worth of dust.
The Cinetic Big Ball also features Dyson’s trademark ball technology, designed to make it easier to manoeuvre, and a self-adjusting floorhead, which adapts to the type of floor surface you are on.
The Cinetic Big Ball has launched initially as the ‘Animal’ or pet-friendly version of its vacuum cleaners, which includes a Dyson tangle-free mini-turbo tool, and has a hefty price tag of £460. It is available to buy online now from dyson.co.uk
