Choosing a Dyson Upright Vacuum
Dyson makes the best bagless upright vacuums, but picking one out can be difficult. With so many series, models, and features available many consumers may tear their hair out in confusion. With this buyer's guide, we hope to explain the differences between the Dyson uprights and help pick out the model that is right for you.
Dyson's vacuums are made in series: DC24, DC25, DC33 and so on. Within each series, the Multi Floor is the base model and the Animal is the pet model. The models are the same except for the color and extra attachments. e.g. The DC25 Animal and DC25 Multi Floor have the same features and attachments, but only the DC25 Animal comes with the mini turbine brush.
Dyson Uprights and Delicate Carpets
The powerful brush action on Dyson uprights provide exceptional cleaning on standard tightly-woven carpets. However, the stronger brush tends to pull out fibers on delicate carpets such as shag, frieze, and wool berber as well as antique and hand-woven rugs. If you are using a Dyson upright on a delicate carpet, we recommend that you turn off the brushroll. This will preserve the life of your carpet. The brushroll shut-off feature is found on all Dyson uprights.
Standard Style or Ball?
Dyson's uprights come in two styles. The standard style models are like most upright vacuums. With two wheels in the back, they handle like a typical upright vacuum. You have to go back and forth like a lawnmower to turn. The Ball System vacuums have a revolutionary steering system. They turn like a bike. You just turn the handle and the brush pivots around and goes in the direction that you point it. While the Ball System is more maneuverable, some buyers may prefer the stable feel of the standard style Dyson upright. It's really down to personal preference. The only thing to look out for is that users with arthritis may feel strain with Dyson Ball models since they have to turn their wrists to steer.
The Dyson Ball Uprights
The DC24 series is Dyson's lightest and most compact Ball Style upright. In order to get the vacuum down to 11.6 lbs., the DC24 needed to cut back on features such as motor size and dust capacity. While most dyson uprights range from 16 to 20 lbs., the DC24 is made for users who need a lighter vacuum. It is also perfect for smaller homes and apartments where there is little space to store a vacuum.
The DC25 is Dyson's full-sized version of the DC24. The larger motor and dust capacity provide better performance than the DC24, but it raises the weight to 16.12 lbs.
The DC40 is Dyson's mid-sized Ball upright. At 14.5 lbs, it fits between the DC24 and DC25 but has a slightly larger cleaning path and capacity than the DC25.
The DC41 is Dyson's top-of-the-line Ball upright. A redesigned airpath gives more suction than the DC25. It also has a larger cleaning path and higher capacity.
Standard Style Dyson Uprights
The DC28 comes with electronic carpet height adjustment for different length carpets. Just press the buttons to select your carpet height and the motors raise or lower the brushroll to the proper height.
The DC33 is similar to the DC28 except that it has automatic carpet height adjustment. By doing away with the electronic height adjustment, the DC33's weight dropped to 17.6 lbs.

Question & Answer
1 Item(s)per pageIs this unit good on bare floors?
Posted On: 6/12/12 By: Tom ZalinskyA: Yes. When the motorized brush bar is retracted then this unit works great on bare floors, especially if you have the Dyson Flat Out Head which is a great attachment for bare floors and cleaning under furniture.
