The LCD screen shows what’s been sucked up, displaying real-time scientific proof of a deep clean¹

No loss of suction with Root Cyclone™ technology

11 root cyclones generate centrifugal forces of up to 100,000G, to remove microscopic dust from the airflow. This dust is trapped in the bin, so your vacuum doesn’t lose suction²

Powerful Dyson Suction

A Dyson Hyperdymium™ motor spins at up to 125,000rpm, generating 150AW of powerful suction for a deep clean.

Dyson’s fully-sealed filtration traps 99.99% of microscopic particles and allergens as small as 0.3 microns – and expels cleaner air³

Single-button power control

Press the Power button once for comfortable, continuous cleaning.

The Direct drive cleaner head drives stiff nylon bristles deep into rugs and carpets to remove ground-in dirt.
