Dyson Root 6

 

The flamethrower-style Root 6 looks like it came straight from a Ghostbusters prop closet, complete with a trigger for a switch and enough power to melt the

Wall-mountable. Nifty, versatile combo brush

Vacuuming requires depressing the trigger continuously ⿿ a drag. Battery drains quickly (it lasted about two-thirds as long as the other models in our test). No attachment storage built in

Review: Dyson Root 6 Vacuum

 

The Root 6 may look like some sort of pneumatic drill from the future, but its hard-core vacuum lineage makes for a serious sucking machine....

Easy-to-clean HEPA filter and dustbin. Bundled with crevice and brush attachments. Lightweight at 5.7 ounces. See through dustbin is pure eye candy for neat freaks. Kick-ass Dyson suction. Kick-ass Dyson design

Power button causes trigger finger-fatigue. Pathetic battery life. Crevice attachment made from cheap plastic makes it vulnerable to gashes and scrapes. Vacuuming at an angle blows cold air from the vents straight into face. Pricey for a handheld

Dyson DC16 Root 6 Animal vacuum cleaner - Pocket-lint

 

If you've got pets then you know how much a pain dog or cat hair can be. Dyson thinks it has the answer with its latest vacuum cleaner, but is it all blow

Portable, powerful, motorised head, bagless

Only lasts 6 minutes before it needs recharging

In our tests the Dyson DC16 performed brilliantly with plenty of suck for the entire time of the charge (all 6 minutes of it).
