Dyson City DC26 | Vacuum reviews


Dyson began 30 years ago when James Dyson tore the bag from his sluggish vacuum cleaner and replaced it with a cardboard cyclone. In doing so he created the first no loss of suction vacuum cleaner. Years of work and 5,127 prototypes later, Dyson's DC01...

Great small size vacuum for laminate floor


I bought this small dimensions vacuum with special laminate flooring head and it is just perfect. I can store it easily because of its small dimensions and the head with carbon brush has great flexibility and fits everywhere I need and bends to all...

I love this vacuum cleaner.


This vacuum cleaner is wonderful. I've had it for almost 3 years and I'm still not sick of it. It is very, very powerful. There is nothing worse than dragging around a vacuum cleaner that doesn't pick things up, but this little baby really does know...

Useless… Minimal suction.


This Dyson has hopeless suction, would be quicker to pick up pieces by hand. I thought it was never supposed to lose suction, well this one did. Cord is far too short and hardly ever retracts fully. Have to go over carpet or floors several times to get...


Minimal suction, short cord, cord never retracts fully. Waste of money.

This is fantastic


Just got a Dyson D26. The reviewer who said there was no suction must have a dud. It picks up everything, even cat hair from the carpet. The cord is actually longer than my old vacuum, so don't know why people complain. Wish I'd got one years ago. Even...

Light, easy to manoeuvre, doesn't take up much room in the cupboard.

Consumer review by: Philly (



There are 4 adults living in our house, a 2 year old (who brings home half the sandpit from childcare) and 2 dogs. It takes 30min to do each bedroom floor, going over and over the same spot until its moderately clean, sometimes ill have to use a carpet...

Light weight and easy to empty

No suction! Doesn't work on carpet at all.

Consumer review by: happy cleaner71 (

perfect for me


I bought the dc 26 because of its small size. I like to "vacu dust" because of allergys.This cleaner is light enough to hold in one hand while dusting everything from micro venetian blinds to furniture shelves and even ornaments. Especially good for...

small size and amazing suctionnot

not sure why the hose is fixed to the right as it comes out from the machine. It seems to prevent the machine from following easily when being pulled along.

Consumer review by: Quanda (



Very good cleaning performance just like all Dysons - I've owned a few going back 7 years and they all still work. The DC26 is very light, compact and easy to use. To be honest, I haven't used any other vacuum cleaner since buying this one however, I...

Easy to use

Short cord, can be unstable

Consumer review by: crisp (

Doesn't live up to expectations


From my experience the Dyson DC 26 is a dud: stiff plastic hose and side hose mounting makes it hard to manoeuvre (it constantly topples over); similarly press the on/off switch and it lurches over; a short power cable means continually having to plug...

bagless design

expensive, poor design, hard to use
