Review: Dyson DC31 Handheld Vacuum

 

Dyson's vacs are the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever did suck. And we mean that in a good way. Meet the debris-gobbling DC31 wonder...

Sucks like it means it. Accidentally swallowed wedding rings are easy to retrieve from crystal-clear debris chamber. Retractable dust-brush head for when you want to hit the crevices

Big, unwieldy, and weighs in at a wrist-tiring three pounds. Priced higher than many full-size upright vacuums. No wall-mount dock for charging/putting on display

Dyson DC31 Vacuum Review

 

The Dyson DC31 Handheld vacuum is widely available but consumer reviews and ratings at this time are sparse. Having said that, those that can be found are not too bad. It seems the DC31 is an improvement over the DC16, Dyson's first handheld attempt.

Charge lasts longer than 10 minutes because only “on” when trigger squeezed ; The “low” power setting is sufficient for most vacuuming ; Very light ; Good for stairs and automobiles

Only 10 minutes of power ; Loud ; Expensive ; Not good with a lot of fine powders as these quickly clog the filters

Vacuum VideoCheck out this great Dyson DC31 Video to see how the vacuum is put together and to watch it work. It is a little bit of a commercial but still very good for getting an idea how this handheld looks and works.

Dyson DC31 Animal Handheld Vacuum Review

 

The Dyson DC31 Animal could be considered the handheld version of the Dyson upright and canister vacuums. It too has the root technology that its other siblings have, along with powerful suction, and sensitivity to allergens too. I have used many a...

Really Powerful suction. Relatively quiet operation. Ergonomic design. Easy to empty clear bin

Even though the design is actually very ergonomic, some may find the handle awkward. Would have liked the battery to have lasted longer

Overall I enjoyed my experience with the Animal DC31. It is certainly the most unique handheld vacuum I have ever used and I appreciate that Dyson’s Root Cyclone technology was applied to this smaller device. The price tag certainly stings when you can...

Dyson DC31 Handheld Vacuum

 

The most impressive handvac of the bunch in terms of technology and engineering, the Dyson DC31 feels like a power tool. It has a smaller, lighter motor with no carbon brushes, which means no carbon particle emissions. The DC31 picked up all of the...

Dyson DC31 handheld vacuum - Pocket-lint

 

Gorgeous styling, hair-trigger operation and an unbeatably good motor make the Dyson a class act, shame you have to use it for cleaning

Unrivalled looks, ridiculously lightweight and the fastest motor in the world … ever

Emptying the dust holder can be messy; it’s pricy as a second vacuum and only has a 10min battery life

Expect to see Dyson’s digital motor all over the shop soon – there’s even talk of scaling it up to power a car, but for now enjoy this super fast, ultra efficient motor in the DC31.

New Engine Power : Dyson DC31 Vacuum Cleaner

 

Mention Dyson and you immediately think of vacuum cleaners. Now we have a Dyson cleaner powered by a new engine.

Deep in the heart of Wiltshire, beavering away at their Malmesbury headquarters, are a team of engineers lead by James Dyson. Best known for developing various vacuum cleaners (based on the cyclone principle), this team had recently turned its sights...

Dyson DC31

 

120 years ago the electric motor was invented and although it has had minor changes it remains more or less the same as it was then. James Dyson has invented a totally new and considerably lighter offering, just one of the new things in this latest...

This will never replace the full sized unit and indeed it is not intended to do so. I remember when I was first shown an early ‘ball’ unit the lady demonstrating it said the ‘ball’ means even a man can use it, I am still not sure how much her tongue...

Dyson DC31 handheld cleaner

 

The normal household upright or cylinder vacuum cleaner can sometimes be just too large and cumbersome for a small job. Dyson's DC31 meets the need for a convenient handheld machine when one just needs to do a quick clean up.

Being battery powered and only weighing about 3lb it can be used virtually anywhere around the house or car and, as long as is kept charged, is always ready to go. The machine is simple and convenient to use. Its has a pistol grip and can be used...

Review of Dyson DC31 handheld vacuum

 

Good points: Battery stops dead when power has run out instead of keeping going with no suction. Thin nozzle is good for narrow areas in the car. Drawbacks: Instructions could be better. Keeping control pressed down makes finger ache.
