It's Evolution

Scientists estimate the first upright vacuum walked among the tall savannah grasses 150,000 years ago.

Vacthropologists have recently unearthed remains of a previously-unknown species of vacuum, dubbed Vacuus Erectus, that they say may be the missing link between primitive canister vacuums and modern machines such as the Dyson DC41 Upright Ball Vacuum.

"These primitive vacuums would have benefited from being able to see above the grass to spot predators and reach food sources that competing vacuums couldn't," explained Dr. Maureen Hagrman of the University of Louisville, "We've long theorized that a 'missing link' species should exist to fill this evolutionary gap; it would appear we've found it."

Dr. Hagrman was unable, despite extensive pressing and questioning, to explain why this discovery is relevant to anyone at all.

DC41 Upright Ball Vacuum is engineered for outstanding cleaning performance and ease of use. It has the strongest suction at the cleaner head, which automatically self-adjusts for different carpet lengths and hard floors. DC41 Upright Ball Vacuum has Dyson’s latest Radial Root Cyclone technology, and Ball technology for smooth steering.  This new version also has a larger .55 gallon bin.

Ball technology for upright vacuums

  • Dyson Ball uprights ride on a ball, which pivots on the spot so you can steer with a turn of the wrist
  • The ball also houses core technology, including the motor and ducting
  • There’s less clutter, so it’s easier to clean into awkward places, along edges and around furniture
Strongest suction at the cleaner head
  • Many upright vacuums use fixed settings, their cleaner heads don’t self-adjust to different floor types – the bigger the gap between cleaner head and floor, the more suction power is wasted
  • With an active base plate it creates the optimal cleaner head contact for every floor type, reducing air leaks and retaining more suction power
  • It’s designed for outstanding performance across all floors – not just carpets, but the whole of your house

Powerful and durable

  • DC41 machines are made from modified blends of materials selected for strength, flexibility and tolerance
  • Many parts are made from polypropylene reinforced with 20% glass fibers and high-impact PC-ABS
  • Using these materials means greater strength from less plastic - so the machine is lightweight

Motorized brush bar

  • Stiff nylon bristles spin at up to 90 times per second to agitate carpet pile and dislodge ground-in dirt and pet hair
  • The brush bar can be turned off to protect delicate rugs and hard floors
  • The button is above the clear bin – no need to bend down to find it

Captures allergens and expels cleaner air

  • Ordinary vacuums can’t always retain all the dust they remove – so some of them vent some of it back into your room in the air they expel
  • That’s the reason for the dusty, electrical smell
  • Dyson cyclones can capture microscopic particles such as pollen, mold and bacteria

Hygienic and quick to empty

  • Emptying the bin on a Dyson vacuum is quick and hygienic
    Just press the button to release the dirt
  • The bin is clear, so you can see when it needs emptying – and how much dust, dirt and pet hair the machine has captured
  • Dyson vacuums were the first to have clear bins – despite market researchers insisting it was a bad idea
  • Now clear bins are everywhere (though not all are made from the same ABS polycarbonate as riot shields, like Dyson bins)
