Light and lovely

Dyson DC49


Powerful, light and easy to stow away

Tends to tip over rather easily and the handle seems quite uncomfortable in use

Dyson DC49


very light and small , ok if you live in a dolls house

Poor suction, short cable, tiny attachments, fiddly construction, the unit falls over easily. I wouldnt recomment this to anyone unless you just want the unit for show
