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

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Huge disappointment! Having had a Dyson DC02 for 15 years, I bought this cleaner expecting the same high quality. Sadly this machine is unbelievably messy to empty, with dust, hair etc collecting in the brush attachment and a nightmare to clean. Also the height of the hose cannot be adjusted as with my previous machine and in this model it is shorter, I am only 5ft 2in but find I am bending almost double to use it effectively, this has aggravated my back which was already causing me problems. If you are tall DONT BUY!! Good point is it is very light and suction is excellent. However, I shall be visiting my local John Lewis store to hopefully return this machine and have a more suitable replacement 23 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A little stunner! Finding this vacuum cleaner absolutely ideal for all those awkward little cleaning jobs including stairs and car interior.. Easy to manoeuvre and great suction. It is also a doddle to keep clean and empty out. Love it! 21 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best vacuum cleaner ever If I was any good at poetry I would write a poem to this beauty. So versatile for every surface and corner. Light to lift which makes it easy to carry up the stairs and get into all the nooks and crannies. Needs to be emptied regularly but that is really easy to do. It comes with a good set of fittings including an attachment that is ace for furnishings. Ordered this online on Saturday and picked it up on Sunday afternoon. Great service! 06 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by lightweight vucuum cleaning This lightweight Dyson is easy to use and gets about the house and stairs with no effort and unlike some cordless models does not run run out of battery half way through the house. A small increase in the lead length would make it better than excellant 01 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by my little dyson I love it.It is so very light I carry it effortlessly up and down stairs,the tools are great for getting in the littlle nooks and crannys.i do have to empty it after every use but dont mind that at all,it is easy to clean the filters too.I have got rid of my big uprights that I had to have one up and one down stairs.This llittle thing fits neatly into a cupboard when not in use.It is only suitable for a flat or small house like mine but I love it. 01 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dyson DC49 Don't normally like cylinder vacuum cleaners but this one is great - lightweight and very powerful - can deal easily with hard floors and carpets with two big dogs in the house. Also easy to assemble and empty. Very glad I bought it! 04 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just the job! I bought this for my elderly aunt as she had outlived her upright vacuum cleaner. She wanted something light and easy to use and this was ideal for her small flat. She had never used a cylinder vacuum before but took to it like a duck to water! 03 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by DYSON DC49 A gem of a machine - small, easy to use. Good attachments also. Don't know how i lived without my Dyson for so long. Best wishes 04 February 2015
