Large debris or microscopic dust? Many vacuum cleaners suck up one or the other, leaving either crevices full of dust or piles of cereal snow ploughed to the wall. Dyson’s latest cordless machine reinvents the way you tackle dirt, big and small, ensuring particles of all sizes are sucked up and flung into the bin. HEPA Filtration to capture allergens and expel cleaner air. Removes 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns.

  • IMPACT
  • To pick-up fine dust, a machine needs to have a tight all-round seal to the floor. Keeping this seal means that larger particles, like rice or large cereals, pile up in front of the machine. Introduce a gap for this large debris and the machine is no longer sealed, the suction drops, and fine dust is left behind.

  • Using a soft roller cleaner head, Dyson Fluffy, Dyson engineers have radically redesigned the traditional cleaner head so that it tackles both big and small debris. Rather than strips of hard bristles, the soft roller cleaner head has a full width roller, covered with a soft nylon material and rows of carbon fiber filaments. Large debris are enveloped by the soft material and flung inside the cleaner head, while the anti-static qualities of the carbon fibre filaments gently remove fine dust, without damaging floors.

  • V6 Absolute is also the first cordless machine to include two Dyson engineered cleaner heads: soft roller cleaner head, as well as Motorhead. The soft roller cleaner head uses a larger roller covered in soft woven nylon, while Motorhead features a second, direct drive motor and stiff nylon bristles for powerful performance on carpets.
