  • Geek-minded individuals who want something a bit fancier than the typical vacuum and likes to enjoy the cool technologies listed below

Key Features

Radial Root Cyclone Technology

Cyclone vacuums are available around since the 80s and the concept basically works like a roller coaster orRadial Root Cyclone Technology clothes dryer. Dyson’s version is a step ahead and even patented by making the flow far more efficient thus reducing turbulence which is necessary to preserve air pressure. All of this stuff is important as it vastly improves the sucking power.

What you really need to know is that you can count on the Dyson Ball Multi floor Canister Vacuum in removing more allergens, dust and annoying pet hair around the house. This cyclone technology even captures the teeny tiny microscopic dust that most other vacuums can’t handle.

Ball Technology

Dyson’s Ball technology is so special that the company decided to trademark it! It is a pretty big deal too as this feature is responsibleBall Technology for the vacuum’s impressive maneuverability and it doesn’t look obvious at first glance. What Dyson basically did with this canister vacuum design is place all of the important components within a spherical housing.

This includes the motor, the 21-foot power cord, and the other important electronics. The idea is to make the center of gravity so low to the point that it feels so stable so you won’t have trouble moving it. The central steering mechanism is the cherry on top allowing you to literally drag the vacuum wherever you wish.

Trigger Head

One of the most annoying things in using typical vacuum cleaner is bending down and adjusting the brTriggerhead Toolush bar as you approach a totally different floor type. The most obvious solution is to come up with a way you can do the adjusting from the handle and Dyson ingeniously did that with the Dyson Ball Multi floor Vacuum. The handle has a built-in pressure trigger which you can pull to drop the pressure to switch the brush bar’s state. It is so easy to use and feels really good pulling the trigger.

Hygienic Bin

As you canHygienic Bin expect from its pretty fancy design, the Dyson Ball Multifloor Canister Vacuum cleaner lacks a bag. What takes its place is a turbine-looking storage bin which Dyson calls the “Hygienic Bin”. All that unwanted dust goes there and never leaves until you disengage the bin with just a press of a button. The arm supporting the bin lifts up allowing you to take it out. From there, you can simply hover it over the trash bin and press another button on the bin to empty the dust in a split second. This bin also gives the vacuum some color to add to the rest of the monochromatic body.

Certified Asthma and Allergy Friendly

This is perhaps the most important feature of the vacuum and it is pretty much a result of the vast majority of the technologies present in this vacuum cleaner. The Radial Root Cyclone technology’s ability to suck up bacteria and the airtight hygienic bin that makes this product a trustworthy companion to those suffering from asthma and other allergies.
