Dyson DC40 Review – Multi Floor & Origin Vacuum Cleaners

Ever since Dyson created its first model, the DC01, it has been at the forefront of vacuum cleaner technology. The DC40 origin and multi floor vacuum cleaners are a clear example of that ennovative technology and their features will speak highly of themself.

Design: Ball Technology to Help You Steer with Ease and efficiency

The DC40 weighs 14.6 pounds and features a removable 0.42-gallon dust bin, an extension hose for hard-to-reach surfaces, an adjustable brushroll, and a 24.6-foot long power cord. Dyson’s patented ball technology, perhaps the dyson DC40’s most unique-looking attribute, serves as the drive mechanism. The perfect design of Dyson vacuums ball gives them a wide
range of pivoting motion, and make the DC40 exceedingly maneuverable.

Usability : easy, flexible and effective Cleaning


Like all Dyson vacuums, you’ll find the DC40’s controls incredibly easy to use. It has only two real function buttons, housed directly above the bin release button. The first button powers the vacuum on and off and the second turns the brushroll on or off.
As with the other Dyson models, the roller brush button depresses automatically when you turn on the vacuum, engaging the brush. If, however, you want to vacuum a hard flooring surface, Dyson recommends disabling the DC40’s rollerbrush as the bristles could scratch your floor.
We can’t discuss the Dyson DC40’s features, or those of any Dyson on the market, without noting the ball technology. It seems to be both a blessing and a curse for this vacuum, a potential Achilles heel. The ball is an excellent feature, enabling Dyson vacuums to turn on a dime and maneuver easily and without much effort on your part. It’s exceptionally maneuverable and I was able to vacuum in a serpentine pattern without any trouble at all.

The 3 major distinguishing features of the dyson DC40 multi floor

  • Self-adjusting cleaner head: DC40 multi floor has an active base plate. It creates the optimal cleaner head contact for every floor type, reducing air leaks and retaining suction power on all floor types- wood, carpet, vinyl and tile.
  • Instant release wand: DC40 multi floor  has an instant release, long reach wand for cleaning stairs and awkward areas- it stretches up to 5 times in length. There are no separate parts to assemble.
  • Extra tools: DC40 multi floor comes with a Combination tool and a Stair tool. The Combination tool has a debris nozzle that converts to a brush tool for dusting. The Stair tool removes dirt and dust from corners and against vertical edges of stairs.Self-AdjustingCleaner-Head-dc40._SL600_-300x139

As you would expect, the dyson DC40 comes with an extendable vacuum hose and attachments. It includes a combination crevice/brush tool and a stair tool, both of which reside on the vacuum itself. The DC40’s hose doesn’t extend as far as other models, but when fully  extended, you’ll be able to vacuum your drapes or curtains and any baseboards with ease. Stairs may prove more difficult and require you to move the vacuum as you get closer to the top or bottom, depending on where you start.


Approved for allergy sufferers, All new Dyson upright and canister vacuums are certified asthma &
allergy friendly by the Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America.
