Dyson DC49 Multi Floor Complete Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner

Product information

DC49 is the smallest, lightest and quietest Dyson Ball™ vacuum. It’s also the only cylinder vacuum with a Dyson digital motor. The small size and power density of the Dyson digital motor V4 enable high pick-up across all floors from Dyson’s most compact machine.

DC49 Multi Floor comes with Dyson’s latest turbine head – it has carbon fibre filaments that remove fine dust from hard floors and stiff nylon bristles that remove ground-in dirt from carpets. With Ball™ technology, DC49 manoeuvres easily around obstacles and follows the user with greater control. It has Radial Root Cyclone™ technology with remodelled airflows for maximised suction. And it has been acoustically engineered – noise levels have been reduced and sound quality has been improved throughout the machine.

It has extra tools for specialised cleaning tasks. The Stubborn dirt brush has stiff bristles to remove dried-in dirt. The Flexi crevice tool extends into awkward gaps. And to clean spots and spills from carpets and upholstery, it comes with Dyzolv™ spot cleaner.

Q & As

Dyson DC49 Multi Floor Complete Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner 4.2 5 13 13
light and nippy to move around .It really suck all the dust . loved the machine because is so easy and powerful for cleaning .The colour is striking attractive .The tools part is practical .Is my third dyson .Even convinced my son to buy one . 12 August 2014
Lots of positives some negatives Very poor on loop pile carpet - the suction was so strong it lifted the carpet off the floor and the trigger to release suction not very convenient to use on a large area. Very good tools & easy to use on stairs. Light and quiet. Very good helpline. Not as manoeuvrable as I thought it would be - the cylinder always seemed to be in the wrong place. I found using the machine quite hard work after having always used an upright but overall expect to get used to & like this vacuum. 08 June 2014
Very good vacuum cleaner. Small and light weight vacuum cleaner. Really good for cleaning on any surface. 03 June 2014
Wow I actually enjoy vacuuming now! I was really apprehensive of spending this much money on a vacuum, but I'm so glad I did. It ticks all the boxes I had - it picks up fantastically, even on deep pile carpets; the floor head is very easy to push (important as I have back problems) it's very light to move the main body around easily and to carry it upstairs; it's very quiet. Although it is small I find can vacuum 2 carpeted rooms and 2 hard floors before it needs emptying. Also, despite being fairly tall, I find the extending tube can easily be made long enough to be comfortable. John Lewis offered the best price on the web and I received great Customer Service. I am one very happy customer! 26 March 2014
Excellent Hoover We were demonstrated the Dyson DC49 Hoover in store among others and given great advice on the best product for our needs. The Hoover is fantastic 25 March 2014
Most certainly NOT a quiet hoover! I had been weighing up my options for several days, comparing various models, as it was very important that I had a quiet hoover, but which was also compact. The Dyson DC49 appeared to tick all my requirements, however, after using it for only a couple of weeks it has become seriously noisy. I've cleaned the pipes/foot to see if that was the problem, but to no joy. The cable is also too short, a metre longer would have been so much more beneficial, and as it's so lightweight, which is great in one sense, it does easily fall over when manoeuvring around a property. John Lewis have been very helpful in ensuring I get a replacement or refund, so great service from them. But I wouldn't recommend this hoover. Maybe I have a faulty one...but I'm not wishing to take the risk and would rather do an exchange rather than receive a replacement. 10 March 2014
Worth the money! My old Dyson finally died and I am actually so pleased it did! This Dyson is so small it is perfect for my flat, the suction on it is brilliant! Worth paying more for a decent brand. My old one was good but this is even better! 11 February 2014
Small and Light I'd bought this vacuum cleaner for my dad to stop him having to lug a heavy one around, so I've only had an initial go of it. It does seem to have as good a suction as the bigger models. The dust barrel is a lot smaller so I envisage you'd have to empty it more but my dad who lives on his own and doesn't make much of a mess in a 3 bed house, it's ideal. 11 February 2014
