Here we have Dyson's smallest upright vacuum cleaner in the lineup. Through testing and re-engineering Dyson discovered that they couldn't simply build a smaller version of another model but they had to concentrate it. This is how they came upon the new two tier radial cyclone technology, which separates the dirt from the clean air before being fully cleaned by the filters. The Dyson Small Ball now performs the same way a full size vacuum should, just in a smaller package. Because of its smaller size it stores easily and can be conveniently carried up and down stairs. One thing to consider is that because of its smaller size it also has a smaller dust bin meaning more frequent emptying. If you're like some of our clients and clean it out each time you vacuum this won't be an issue.
Now we'll take a look at what makes it clean as well as it does. First it has the Two Tier Radial Cyclone technology which means 19 cyclones working in parallel across two tiers generate high centrifugal forces. More microscopic particles, as small as 0.5 microns, are captured from the airflow. In English this means that the dirt spins so fast that it can't keep up to the air because air is lighter than dirt so the air moves on and the dirt falls in the bin. How much dirt? .5 microns is very small, so small that if you look at a piece of hair it can be around 80-100 microns thick. Next we'll look at how the dirt gets picked up. New to the Dyson Small Ball is the min / max setting on the cleaner head. This allows you to adjust the machine to different carpet piles, and create a better seal with the retractable squeegee. Dyson engineered the brush bar to pick up on all types of surfaces, even bare floor. Most vacuums will only work on carpet unless you use a specialized hard floor brush. Dyson does include the Articulating Hard Floor tool for better cleaning performance on bare floor and better reach under low furniture. This tool attaches to the end of the extension tube and hose which is conveniently hidden on the machine until needed.
What makes this an animal lovers vacuum (or even those without pets but love a clean home) is all of the bonus attachments that are included at no extra charge. First we have the Articulating Hard Floor tool which is the ideal tool for bare floors. Next we have the famous Dyson Groom tool for dog owners - this tool will remove pet hair with ease as long as your dog is comfortable being close to the vacuum. Then there is the Tangle-Free Turbine head for agitating carpet and upholstery in hard to get places such as the stairs, couches, mattresses, pet beds and just about anywhere you can't fit the nozzle of the vacuum. For dried stubborn dirt there is a Stiff Bristle Brush which easily scrubs out dried mud. For on the go cleaning you'll find a combination dusting brush and crevice tool along with an upholstery/stair tool that store right on the side of the vacuum.
