Dyson DC11 Telescope Allergy Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner Green/Lavender
HEPA Filteration: DC11 HEPA models are equipped with a lifetime HEPA post-motor filter specially designed to retain the highest level of microscopic particles. The 310,000mm2 HEPA filter includes a bacteria-killing screen. This combination not only captures harmful particles such as cigarette smoke, but it also traps bacteria on contact.
Root12 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 bags. So unlike other vacuums, Dyson doesn't clog and lose suction, so it picks up more dirt.
Dyson Turbine Head: No need to change tools - brushbar turns on and off for better pick-up on hard floors and carpets.
Smallest package: No unwieldy wand or hose to fall over.
Smallest space: Unlike other machines, it stores tidily out of the way.
Hygienic and quick to empty: Just press the button - avoid contact with the dirt.
No running costs: The pre-motor filter removes particles down to 0.1 micron and is washable. The post-motor electrostatic filter traps harmful carbon emissions from the motor. This filter never needs replacing.
BAF Seal of Approval: The British Allergy Foundation aims to improve awareness of and treatment of allergies and advises people of allergy-friendly products to buy.
Tools on board: Tools on board for rapid tool access.
Car cleaning: For easier cleaning in confined areas, the tools can be fitted directly to the end of the wand.
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 bend down to adjust dials or switches.
Durable tough construction: Made from the strongest materials avaliable to withstand bumps and bashes.
Protective rubber wheels: Kinder to delicate surfaces.
Clear bin: Clear bin - no bags to buy.
Parking yoke: The Dyson Turbine Head slides securely in to the parking yoke at the back of the DC11 for stable and convenient storage.
2 Year guarantee.
Not brilliant at times
Having had 4 replacement turbine heads for mine, which to be fair as its under the Dyson 2 yrs warranty, have all been free, this has still left me feeling this vacuum isnt the one for me. When its working well, it does do a good job, but I find that some dogs hairs are still left in the carpet. And after 3-4 months, it dies a death and Dyson have to send their Engineer out to me again, to order yet another head! You can see it grooming your carpets, and the suction is huge. Overall, I would recommend this model, as maybe mine is just a troubled machine, and the Dyson Cutomer Service is excellent. But alas,its time for me to move on and I am going to try a Henry vacuum.
This cleaner is amazing on hard floors and carpet, it very easy to clean and looks good too. The worst part is that you can see how much dirt it has collected! The power cord retraction is a little slow, but it works. Yes it's expensive but it is the most powerful cleaner I've used - and being able to take it apart and completely clean it is a bonus. Strongly recommend.
A great vacuum but not with out its flaws.
The DC 11 Alergy is an amazing vacuume cleaner. Prior to testing it I had vaduumed the floors with my existing cleaner and the DC 11 was still able to pick up a sizable ammount of dust.
There are a few downsides to it:
- Despite the claim of a one handed emptying system, I found I had to dismantle the container to get all the dirt into the bin.
- The hose is very short (300cm) and as a result made it akward to maneuver.
- It does not cope well with large objects due to the rotary brush
- The biggest issue is that any long hair it picks up gets wrapped around the rotary brush, instead of getting picked up.
The last point was the main reason I recurned this and got the DC 08TW Allergy.
