Dyson Ball Multi Floor Features and Specifications

Dyson Ball Multi Floor Canister Vacuum Cleaner is 14.2 inches tall, 19.5 inches long and 10.2 inches wide (~36.1 x 49.5 x 26 cm). Also, it weighs 16.9 pounds (~7.7 kg).

Its dimensions are respectable, but when carried around, unit is carried with both hands, not just one. Also, unit features central steering mechanism, helping it to move smoothly around the house when being pulled by the user. Also, thanks to the ball technology, its center of gravity is very low.

Suction power is rated at 280 Air Watts which is very strong suction and one of the strongest suctions in domestic vacuums on the market.

Maximum cleaning reach using just one wall power socket is 45 feet (~13.7 m), allowing the user to clean large area without changing the power socket.

Air filtration is provided by cyclonic action in 14 cyclones, combined with lifetime washable air filter.

Note: when washing the air filter, be sure to always dry it thoroughly before assembling it back into the unit. Operating the vacuum with wet filter can damage the vacuum and void the 5 year limited warranty. Although this is rather simple to operate canister vacuum cleaner, before the first use, be sure to read the manual.

With all that in mind, Dyson Ball Multi Floor vacuum is highly recommended for people having issues with asthma and allergies - true HEPA vacuum cleaner filters out at least 99.97% of 0.3 microns or larger particles, effectively exhausting the clean air back in the cleaned room.

Dirt bin is transparent, allowing the user to see amount and type of vacuumed dirt. Dirt bin capacity is 0.53 gallons (~2 liters), enabling the user to vacuum large amount of dirt before the dirt bin must be emptied - when the dirt reaches Max Fill Line.

Dirt bin is emptied from the bottom, helping the user NOT to make a mess when emptying the dirt bin.

Main cleaning tool is Triggerhead floor tool, with additional cleaning attachments include Stair tool and Combination Tool.

Triggerhead floor tool features rotating brush bar, which helps significantly when cleaning carpets, area rugs, hard floors and similar. The best of all is that brush bar is controlled via handle controls, requiring no bending from the user.

Note: delicate and sensitive carpets, area rugs, wooden floors and similar surfaces should be vacuumed with brush bar turned OFF! Better safe than sorry.

Occasionally, brush bar must be cleaned from hair, fibers, lint and similar debris - it is not 'tangle-free design'.

Triggerhead cleaning tool comes with full swivel mechanism, allowing the user to easily clean surfaces with many floor obstacles, like furniture, walls, corners, along the baseboards and similar.

However, for cleaning other, especially hard to reach and clean surfaces, unit comes with two additional attachments.

Stair tool is designed for cleaning stairs, car seats, upholstery and similar surfaces. It is attached to the flexible cleaning hose and can be used for cleaning elevated surfaces, too.

Combination tool is 2-in-1 cleaning tool. The dusting brush is used for dusting various smaller surfaces, while the crevice tool is used for cleaning narrow and tight places.
