Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Root Cyclone Technology: A Dyson cyclone spins air at high speed. Dirt and dust are thrown out of the airflow and collected in the bin, not on filters or in bags. So unlike other machines, Dyson doesn't clog and lose suction, so it picks up more dirt.

Telescope wrap: Wraps for easy carrying and storage.

Contact head: Articulates responsively at the neck to maintain closest contact with all floor surfaces even as you pull backwards, so it picks up more dirt than conventional floor tools.

Unique hose wrap: For easy storage.

Approved for allergy sufferers: DC08 Telescope Wrap models have been approved by the British Allergy Foundation for allergy sufferers.

No running costs: The pre-motor filter removes particles down to 0.1 micron and is washable. The post-motor filter traps harmful carbon emissions from the motor. This filter never needs replacing.

Sits comfortably on stairs: DCO8 Telescope Wrap is designed to sit on each step as you clean.

Removable tool holster: You can store the tool holster on the machine or on the hose so that the stair, crevice and brush tools are always to hand.

Car and upholstery cleaning: For easier cleaning in confined areas the tools can be fitted directly to the end of the wand or the hose.

Adjustable wand: Adjusts to the length you want and compacts for convenient storage.

Suction release trigger: The suction release trigger reduces suction so that you can clean curtains, upholstery or delicate rugs without them sticking to the cleaner. No need to adjust any dials or switches.

Easy to manoeuvre: With a rear centre of gravity, DCO8 Telescope Wrap turns and manoeuvres responsively on the spot and is easily pulled around furniture.

Clear bin: You can see how well the Dyson works, you can always tell when it's full, it's easy to empty and you can retrieve lost objects.

Large debris pick-up: The additional front channel on the contact head means that larger dirt and debris are not 'snowploughed' across a smooth floor, so you can pick up larger pieces such as rice and nuts first time.

Protective rubber wheels: Over moulded with rubber tyres, the wheels are kinder to your floors than plastic wheels.

Robust construction: Made from the strongest materials available to withstand bumps and bashes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Suction not good enough considering the expense 16 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase
One of the problems in buying a hoover is that you do not get the opportunity to test drive it first. I am disappointed with the suction and feel the large hoover head is absolutely useless and does not adequately hoover my carpets. The small hoover head makes the task hard work since it does such a small width of the carpet at a time and I am pushing it into and against the pile; for an older person it would be unnecessary hard work. I do not really rate this dyson hoover and would probably not consider purchasing another dyson unless absolutely recommended by someone I know AND had a go using it myself. Dysons are expensive, but are not all they are cracked up to be, this is the 2nd I bought and I had hoped it would be an improvement on the first. Perhaps they should look at bringing the production back to the UK where it would be done properly!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't suck the skin off a custard pie... 24 Jan 2007
The Dyson DC08 is singularly the worst vacuum cleaner I have ever had the misfortune to own - and what a price to learn that mistake. It would block up persistently, the cyclone thingummy would clog just like a bagged cleaner! So much for Dyson's claims that his are better than bagged ones! The HEPA filter, the bug filter all just added to the misery as they clogged just as easily. The best cleaner I have owned was a Panasonic - still have it for cleaning out the cars. Even used the Panasonic followed by the Dyson - the only way the Dyson could cope - but it didn't collect anything cos the Panasonic had already cleaned up. Would I buy a Dyson again ? Once bitten... so not a chance.

A brilliant peace of kit as for such a small vacuum cleaner it does everything that i want. Small enough to store in small places and no bag to change. Overall a very good purchase.
