The Dyson DC46 Motorhead is a compact, but powerful, canister vacuum cleaner designed for apartments and condos. It's small enough to store away with ease, but powerful enough to thoroughly clean the space from top to bottom. As well, for increased particle separation and cleaner exhaust air the DC46 Motorhead utilizes the 2 Tier Radial Cyclone technology, which allows this machine to be certified asthma and allergy friendly. To ensure hassle free cleaning this vacuum is built on the Ball technology which allows the machine to follow behind the user with a more fluid motion and easier maneuverability in tight spaces.
All Dyson vacuums, including the DC46 Motorhead, can be used to clean both carpeted and barefloor surfaces. The carbon filament power nozzle, which is controlled by a separate motor than the vacuum, separates the carpet fibers and the suction of the vacuum lifts and removes the dirt and debris away. Controls built into the hose handle allow you to turn the machine on an off, increase or decrease the suction, as well as activate the brush bar when it is needed. This motorhead is best for use on low and medium pile carpeting and area rugs. Since there is a separate motor powering the brush it is suitable for households with shedding pets. Due to the soft brushes on the motorhead it is ideal for delicate surfaces like berber and Persian rugs, but is not the best solution for high/thick pile carpeting.
If the home has barefloor surfaces the motorhead easily detached from the wand and the articulating hardfloor brush can be attached. This brush has a pivot in the neck which allows for easier cleaning around furniture. For a more customized clean the new suction control feature is built into the DC46. By way of a plus or minus button built into the hose handle the suction of the machine can be set to low or high. This allows a lower amount of suction to be used when cleaning delicate areas like blinds, drapery, and lamp shades, and the higher setting can be used when cleaning carpeting and barefloor surfaces. The wand can also be detached from the hose allowing the cleaning attachments (like the included soft dusting brush, or crevice/dusting tool) to be connected to the hose handle. This allows for greater control when cleaning tight spaces.
