1.0 out of 5 stars It's possible to have too much suction, 4 Feb 2013
This review is from: Dyson DC19DB Multi Floor Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner (Kitchen & Home)
We've had one of these for about a year. We have never had a vacuum cleaner with more suction. It's astounding, much more powerful than our old Electrolux. I think it could support its own (considerable) weight off the ceiling. And that, believe it or not is the main problem I have with it. We have extensive vinyl flooring. As soon as the Dyson hits the vinyl it clamps itself imovably to the floor. At that point you have a choice. You can either pull the trigger to release the vacuum which will unstick the tool from the floor,or you can leave it clamped to the floor and use it as a sweeping brush. Since it's very heavy and clusmsy pushing it around while it collects dirt in front of, but never in the the wide nozzle,feels a bit stupid and futile. Nowadays I generally use a sweeping brush and just use the Dyson on the carpet which cleans almost as well as the Electrolux. Another little point which didn't occur to me when I driving that excellent upright, bagged vaccum cleaner to the dump was that the Dyson might be bagless but you still have to wash the filter. I've done this twice when the suction dropped. Not because of the loss of suction, that was helpful, but because the noise level increased from too loud to unbearable. In sum, if you want masses of suction and you're not too worried about noise or weight this is the cleaner for you. If you want quiet operation, versitility, lightness, ease of use, there might be other brands worth a look.
