Telescope Wrap - the full size cylinder that shrinks after use. Powerful all-round pet hair removal. Features: Animal Turbo Tool - for effective pet hair pickup from stairs; upholstery and car.
Mini turbine head: Designed by Dyson, the mini turbine head is ideal for removing pet hair and fibres from confined spaces such as upholstery, stairs and the car.
Turbine head: Designed by Dyson, the turbine head gives better pick-up across all floor types with no need to change tools. The brushbar can be turned off for rugs and delicate surfaces.
HEPA + Bactisafe: Lifetime HEPA filter and bacteria - killing screen.
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.

It is a noticeable improvement on the DC05 in terms of vacuuming power and is clearly an extremely effective vacuum. I'm a typically inobservant male but even I can tell (and appreciate) when the carpets have had a good dysoning. I really like the clever way it compacts down into a small, albeit heavy, pod. I'm not a naturally tidy person, and any machine that can neatly wrap itself up is a big improvement on the jumble of tubes and accessories you normally get.
When researching which vacuum to get I was a bit wary of the head being 'turbo' rather than electrically powered, but it performs very well and I don't think a powered version would be any improvement. Again, this is better than earlier versions of Dyson and Miele that I've used where the so-called Turbo heads were somewhat ineffective.
The thing I'm not so keen on is the surprisingly small capacity of the dust container - it reaches the 'Max' level very quickly. This could be because we have a particularly dusty house, or a particularly effective vacuum, but I think it's just a plain small container. That being said, bagless is definitely best as I hate feeling ripped off by the price of the bespoke vacuum bags you need with other cleaners. Perhaps the relatively small container is a good thing as it means that the inevitable cloud of dust emerging during the emptying process is also relatively small, and you can therefore hold your breath and retreat to a safe distance without turning blue or being overtaken by something akin to the sandstorm in The Mummy.
The two other areas I would fault are the rather bulky "wand" and the accessory storage.Read more ›
If ever you could get excited about a vacum cleaner, then this is the one - compact, powerful, and so easy to use! You will never use anything but a Dyson again.
I love the telescopic feature, it means there is plenty more room in the storage cupboard. I have also bought the softbrush too which makes easy work of cleaning tops of bookshelves and around the jungle of electrial wires we have with TV DVD stereo etc.
As other Dyson users have found, you really don't know how dirty your carpets are until you used a Dyson on them for the first time (4 trips to the bin to empty and I thought my house was clean!!)
I would recommend this to anyone
