Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

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.

After having a disastrous time with a DC03 upright I was greatly relieved when my DC08 arrived. It comes with a 'contact head', which allows you to vacuum right under things like beds because it can go completely flat. The suction is always good and it picks up all pet hair in its path. The only problem is you need to empty it alot!
Well done Dyson!

I have to say the DC08 Allergy vacuum cleaner is the worst I've ever used.

The first thing I noticed about this vacuum cleaner was how small and compact it is. That's fine for storing it after use but i have to empty it every time I use it.

So much also for Dyson doing away with the bag to prevent lack of suction...if only! The head of the vacuum cleaner just doesn't get close enough upto the edges for me so I have to keep stopping and taking off the head to attatch one of the 3 accessories provided. Incidently these accessories are attatched to the main pipe and swing around wildly while you vacuum making the whole thing top heavy...if you then slide the accessory attatchment down the pipe you will run the risk of suffering bruised knees or ankles.

If you like a nice long flex on your vacuum cleaner too you will be disappointed as you can't get far without stopping and unplugging it to start again somewhere else. For the price I just don't think that the DC08 is worth the money. If you want a good robust cylinder cleaner...get a Henry, you'll have to put up with emptying the bag but hey! atleast it won't be every time you use it!
