Dyson DC01 - A Great Leap Sideways


When we went looking for a new "hoover" we knew what we were looking for. Compared to the old one, we wanted it to be more powerful, quieter, cleaner, lighter, more reliable, cheaper to buy and easier to use. Unfortunately, the DC01 turned out to be...

Dyson DC01 : The Queen of Vacuum Cleaners!


This bagless mean machine leaves no stone unturned, its suction power makes sure of that, any dust and dirt on the carpet, curtains, sofa etc.. will be collected with force into the Dyson vacuum. If you think your carpet is clean then think again. I...

Dyson DC01 : Dyson a Force To Be Reckoned With


The DC01 was one of the first dyson products on the market, I bought mine about 4 years ago as I had heard so much about them and we do tend to get through an awful lot of vacums in our house, Dyson are now on the DC07 model but so far the 01 has...
