Product information

The Dyson DC50 Multi Floor Complete is an upright vacuum cleaner designed for every floor type. It weighs just 5.4kg but has the performance of a full-size upright vacuum cleaner. The technology inside has not simply been ‘shrunk’, but concentrated – every angle and dimension re-engineered for the ultimate cleaning power and performance.

Four key cleaner head technologies combine to give DC50 Multi Floor Complete Dyson’s most advanced cleaner head technology yet. It has been engineered for increased dirt pick-up across all floors. The cleaner head adjusts automatically to different floor types, and the brush bar contains carbon fibre filaments for removing fine dust from hard floors.

Like all Dyson vacuums, the DC50 Multi Floor Complete has no bag, so there’s no loss of suction. Instead, patented cyclone technology spins dust and dirt from the air. With 2 Tier Radial™ cyclones, the DC50 Multi Floor Complete has 19 cyclones that work in parallel across two tiers to generate high centrifugal forces. Microscopic particles as small as 0.5 microns are captured from the airflow.

With Dyson’s latest Ball™ technology, even more of the vacuum’s key components are located inside the ball itself. This reduces clutter on the outside of the machine, streamlining its profile. DC50 Multi Floor Complete turns on the spot, steering easily around furniture and into difficult places.

This Complete model has extra tools for specialised cleaning tasks. The Stubborn dirt brush has stiff bristles to clean 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


Special offer

    Trade-in any vacuum and receive money off a Dyson upright or cylinder machine.

    Conventional vacuums with bags clog and lose suction. Dyson upright and cylinder vacuums are different. Patented cyclone technology spins dirty air at high speeds, flinging microscopic particles out of the airflow and into the bin. There’s no bag, so there’s no loss of suction.

    From 09 April to 27 May 2014, you can trade-in your old vacuum cleaner of any make and get money off brand new selected Dyson upright or cylinder machines. The trade-in offer is available at all participating John Lewis stores and through our website.

    All Dyson upright and cylinder vacuums come with a free 5-year guarantee – parts and labour. And because they have lifetime washable filters and there are no bags to buy, there are no extra costs.

    Terms and conditions:

    The offer is only available if the customer agrees to dispose of an old vacuum cleaner he or she already owns by entering the promotional code DYSON70 at the end of checkout, and bringing their old vacuum cleaner to the small electrical department next time they visit a John Lewis store.

    If the customer wishes to return the product, only the discounted price paid will be refunded and the old vacuum will not be returned. Also available in John Lewis shops. Offer ends 27 May 2014.

DC50, not that good Having now owned for 12 weeks and used around the home, found it to pick up on hard floors, very good but the head does not pick up on carpet that well from the edges of the room against skirtings, have to get brush tools out on hose part to finish cleaning. Longer pile carpets cause the safety brake on the head to stop the spinning brushes, so have to keep reseting by putting the hoover in the upright postion. Like the light weight and ease of movment, but would not recommend this model 22 March 2014
Very good build quality This is built very well and the design is carefully thought about. I hear that the aftersales service even years later is excellent. 20 March 2014
Lightweight and Efficient I got this for my elderly mother-in-law who has a small flat with a mix of carpet, tiled and lino flooring. She has had it for a few weeks and loves it. She is able to wheel it about easily even though she is not strong and she says it is much better than the Dyson model it replaced and which she had for about 10 years. Having a 5-year guarantee gives her peace of mind. I set it up for her which took about 10 minutes and was easy with the instructions provided. I am impressed with the quality of the product but feel it is not suitable for regular hard use so possibly better for small homes and light usage. 05 January 2014
Good offer Very light weight and easy to move around. The problem I have found is the tool release button is small and if you have long nails this can become a battle to press. Also, unless you stand the vacuum in the clicked upright position it just falls back, which can be annoying. This is an issue for Dyson not John Lewis. Suction power is good which is the main thing. Bought this with £100 off, which is a good deal. Probably wouldn't have been happy with paying the full amount. 27 December 2013
Great improvement over full size Dyson Better value for money and much easier to handle than the full size model. 17 December 2013
lightweight vacuum - good for small spaces I'm pretty happy with this product. It's very light and very easy steer around - it has good suction too. I had an old Dyson that vacuumed great but was of flimsy build - bits kept snapping off - I'm a little worried this may be prone to the same over time as it does feel a little flimsy. The bendy part of the tube is very short so using the attachments can be a little tricky. The cylinder needs emptying a lot as it's quite small - but that's so easy to do. That's the main reason why I think it's best suited to smaller homes - that, and the fact that it's really compact when not in use. Overall I'm very happy with it. 03 December 2013
Does what it says on the box Ordered it one day and picked it up the next day. A great service. The product itself is very light but very functional. I couldn't believe how much more dust it sucked up compared to my old one. 03 December 2013
Not fit for purpose............but John Lewis is. I returned this item to Dyson the second day it was in my house. A poor imitation of my previous Dysons. Inefficient and generally unsatisfactory. Not suitable for purpose. Using the Internet I sourced parts and rebuilt my old Dyson back to an ' as new ' operating standard. I could not recommend this item, DC 50. However the returns policy of John Lewis is as advertised and that I can highly recommend along with the service of their staff 12 November 2013
