The DC08 features Dyson's patented Root12Cyclone" technology that maintains powerful constant suction. The Clear Bin" means 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.
All Dyson cleaners have lifetime filters. This means constant suction and high filtration, filtration of particles as small as cigarette smoke (0.1 micron) and no running costs. Dyson Root12Cyclone" technology maintains powerful constant suction and removes more fine dust from the airflow than any other bag or bagless system, so the filters don't clog.
DC08 HEPA models are also equipped with a lifetime HEPA post-motor filter specially designed to retain the highest level of microscopic particles. The British Allergy Foundation aims to improve awareness of and treatment of allergies and advises people of allergy-friendly products to buy. The DC08 uses Root12Cyclone" technology to maintain constant suction and to remove even the smallest particles of dust, which is why it has been endorsed by BAF. This combination not only captures harmful particles such as cigarette smoke, but it also kills bacteria on contact.
The new Dyson Contact head" articulates responsively at the neck to maintain closest contact with all floor surfaces even as you pull backwards. This means it picks up more dirt from your home than conventional floor tools. 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.
With a rear centre of gravity, the DC08 turns and manoeuvres responsively on the spot and is easily pulled around furniture. It is also designed to sit on each step as you clean. In addition, the new ergonomic wand handle has been engineered to rotate to take the weight off your wrist as you clean. The wand slides securely into the parking yoke at the back of DC08 for stable and convenient storage. The lightweight extension tube adjusts to the length you want - just grip the sleeve and pull. You can store the tool holster either on the main body or wherever you like on the hose, so that the stair, crevice and brush tools are always to hand.
Tools can be attached directly to the end of the hose, allowing you to clean confined spaces easily - such as the car or upholstery.
The suction release trigger reduces suction by 35%, so that you can clean curtains, upholstery or delicate rugs without them sticking to the cleaner. No need to bend down to adjust any dials or switches. Over-moulded with rubber tyres, the wheels are kinder to your floors than plastic wheels.
DC08 is made from ABS and polycarbonate 2 of the strongest materials available.
