The only handheld that doesn't lose suction - 'Dyson is all about developing new and better technology - and now Dyson's engineers have applied these principles to handhelds. Dyson Root 6 is the only handheld vacuum with powerful constant suction.' James Dyson. Other cordless handheld vacuums rely on filters to trap the dirt. These start to clog as soon as you start to pick up dust, causing loss of suction. A Dyson works differently - the dirt is spun from the air into the bin so the suction stays constant.

Looks like a Drill with a Food Blender stuck to the bottom of it. Kewl find though!!!
#4
hope it works better than it looks:o
#5
That looks (in my honest opinion) really crap, im sorry but the inventers have not come up trumps with this design,
Your children will be forever playing with it for a lazer gun let alone using it as a hoover.
I think this product needs recalling and someone taking a step back and lookin properly at it lol

Thats what it reminds me of, ....the proton pack gun from ghostbusters.

:-D :-D

What they have done is just Squeezing all the benefits / design of a larger cylinder Dyson in to a handheld model. The Clear Bin, a big hit with rest of the models is retained and from the look of it, is large. Also has high power Li-battery and weighs just 1.5 Kg.

I think it pushes all the right buttons for a powerful handheld cleaner.
#8
But Edi the whole point of a handheld hoover is that its lightweight and easy to use..... this looks to me that you need both hands to use plus i dont think you could get in small spaces to hoover up or that?
I honestly couldnt see my granny buying one of these, all the family would jumpp out there skin thinking she's gona shoot them all lol

honestly Edi take a closer looky ..........

Thanks Saxo ;-)

This handheld Vacuum ckeaner couldnt have been designed with grannies in mind for whom the best choice would be the Tesco handheld vacuum for £7 which does nothing other than generating noise :-D .

1.5Kg is still light-weight; weight of a Sony Vaio Centrino laptop (i have one in office which weighs just 1.42 kg). DC16 has 36 Air Watts suction power which is enormous compared to the normal haldhelds.
#10
It might be a bit larger than the normal hand-helds, though to be fair it may look bigger in the pics than it is, but since normal hand-helds simply don't work (trust me I spend £40 on a top-of-the-range Black & Decker Dustbuster which worked sort-of for a few minutes then failed to work at all) then it's a real advance!

The design is also clearly so that you can use the bit at the front to get into small spaces, while the main body of it stays back.

Good job nick_sub, it looks good!
#15
This looks good, esp for my mum as she has arthritis (lightweight)
£269 at comet
#16
It should be good for £279...just hope the build quality is up to the price.
#17
It does look great, as does the handheld... but I couldn't bring myself to replace my British-made Dyson with another Dyson when it came time to replace it... I was so annoyed with them for moving production overseas, I went with a different brand.
#18
Did you manage find another British made one? I'm not sure who still makes them here, most manufacturers make them abroad now. No-one wanted them to go, but unfortunately it doesn't make any economic sense to make them here.

No I didn't, but I did manage to find a German-made one from a German company, and frankly I'd rather give my money to a foreign company that remains true to its staff than a British one that doesn't. German production costs are at least at high as Britain's (probably higher), and they seem to manage very well, so I'm afraid I don't accept that argument.

If vacuum cleaners can be made profitably in Germany, then they can in Britain - and Dyson managed to build up a big company with handsome profits initially mainly from the UK market, where UK manufacturing was boasted about as a selling point, until they saw the chance of even juicier profit margins once they were established! If it really was impossible to make them profitably in the UK, Dyson would never have got off the ground using UK manufacturing in the first place. Things didn't change overnight.

The fact that Dysons always do so poorly in Which? reliability tests was also a factor, since they make the most expensive machines but seem to give the worst quality, but the new 5-year warranty would have been enough to keep me buying Dyson, if they hadn't closed their British factory. As it is, no more Dysons for me I'm afraid.

Sorry, not getting at you personally - this is a rant against Dyson not you. Still since you work for them, it's worth you knowing.
#20
No problem. I don't work for them any more anyway.

Some valid points there I think. Yes, they were profitable before moving production. And yes, they could probably have carried on and survived ok. As you point out the decision to move was entirely financial and the benefit would mainly be to Dyson, in increased profits, but also prices have also dropped slightly since the move.

I do find it a bit sad that when a company makes an effort to manufacture here and then moves abroad that they get bad press which they would not have had if they had manufactured abroad from the start. Personally I think that James Dyson would have rather production had stayed here, and he was probably the only reason that it stayed here for so long. But I think the money men got the better of him in the end.

Also, a lot of people don't realise Dyson is still based in the UK. Everything other than production and testing is still done here, and I suspect they have almost as many employees here now due to growth as they did when production was moved. What's more, on average they will be higher paid jobs so will contribute more to the economy.

I don't know about manufacturing incentives in Germany, but it's impressive that they can afford to manufacture there. To be fair James Dyson had been complaining to the government for years about how difficult it is to manufacture here economically and they took no notice.

As for reliability, Dyson are certainly not as good as they'd like to be, but things are improving. By their nature, the reliability figures in Which? etc have to be based on old machines, so it doesn't necessarily reflect what you might expect from the latest machines. But it just goes to show what a long term effect reliability has on brand image. Also, when you think of how many Dyson's there are out there compared to other brands it's never going to be difficult to find people who've had bad experiences. In my experience I have come across far more people who love them than hate them. I think it's a good sign that as an ex-employee I would still go out and buy a Dyson when I need a new cleaner (especially with that 5 year gaurantee.)

Some very constructive and well-informed comments here guys. Thanks for your input to this thread:)
#22
Thanks nick_sub :)

I'm a bit Dyson mad person. After finishing 'Against the Odds' book, I wanted to buy a Dyson product to show my solidarity to a person who grew from nothing and had the determination to fight to the end. Yes, Dyson had a bad press recently after the production moved abroad but it is now an inevitable saga in British business. BTW, I bought a Dyson cylinder cleaner and am a happy owner for nearly 2 yrs now.

Well everyone I know with a Dyson has had reliability and build quality problems so you must be lucky edi....or maybe you hardly use it ??? LOL

Having said that I do admire the guy.
