Dyson Comparison Chart

Top

The Dyson Vacuum Comparison Chart shown below, provides a quick and easy reference of the features of benefits of the most popular Dyson Vacuums. This page offers the shopping consumer a Dyson Vacuum review on most available models. Features, benefits, and Dyson specifications are included to assist in your purchase decision.   

Feel free to call us at Vacuum-Direct (1-866-927-4327) if you require additional purchase assistance or have any further questions. Our friendly staff is extremely knowledgeable in everything Dyson and we are here to help.

Note that all Dyson canister vacuums (DC22, DC23, DC26 & DC39) come with a 5 year warranty on parts and handheld vacuums (DC34, DC35 & DC44) come with a 2 year warranty. Dyson canisters are offered in several models: Animal, Motorhead, Turbinehead, and Multi Floor.  When a vacuum has the word 'Animal' in the title, this simply means that the vacuum was designed with features in mind for homes with pets, such as a Mini Turbine Head attachment. Motorhead canister vacuums have a motorized brush bar for digging dirt and pet hair out of carpets. Turbinehead canister vacuums have a turbinehead brush bar for carpets that can be switched off for hard flooring. Multi floor canister vacuums were designed for homes with multiple types of flooring, but do not need a vacuum designed for pet owners. 

Our chart has been broken up into two categories, general features and specific features. See below:

All Dyson Upright Vacuums come with a 5 year warranty. The Dyson Uprights are labeled either Multi Floor or Animal. Multi Floor vacuums are designed specifically for homes with multiple types of flooring in mind, such as carpet, tile, vinyl, and wood floors. Animal models are designed for homes dealing with pet hair and dander. These homes require additional tools such as a Mini Turbine Head, which is not included with the Multi Floor vacuums. Dyson Animal vacuums are equipped to deal with multiple floor types as well, but their features are focused towards the needs of pet owners. Furthermore, Dyson upright vacuums have two movement types to choose from, a Fixed Wheel vacuum or a Ball vacuum. Dyson Ball vacuums have made a huge impression on home owners for their excellent maneuverability and lightweight, compact designs. Fixed Wheel vacuums are typically full-sized vacuums that have a similar feel to traditional upright vacuum styles.
