|Dyson’s DC26 Multi floor canister vacuum works like a full-size Dyson vacuum, but is a fraction of the size. It is suitable for every floor type, and at a mere 12.26 lbs, it will also fit on a standard letter size sheet of paper. DC26 City features Concentrated Root Cyclone™ technology, Dyson’s patented technology that doesn’t lose suction power as you vacuum. It’s air-driven brush bar is ideal for cleaning short pile carpet, and can be turned off for hard floors and delicate rugs. The conductive carbon fiber brush bar has rows of ultra fine carbon filaments engineered to remove fine dust from hard floors. The centralized motor is positioned to remove drag weight, and the Clear bin™ let’s you see when it needs emptying. DC26 City carries a 6-month warranty, parts and labor guaranteed by Dyson. As with all Dyson vacuums, the DC26 Multi floor has no bag, and no loss of suction.|
Clever product but not for me8/24/2012
This vacuum is a compact unit - don't buy it for vacuuming large areas. The motor seems powerful enough for a big job, but the vacuum head is narrow. The vacuum-operated brush works fairly well and picked up a lot of cat hair from our rugs. But, the head has a fairly small throat in it that can clog easily and require manual clearing. This was not the solution for our needs.
If you are looking to clean your whole house or if you have a lot of carpet this is not the vaccum for you. If you only have a small space or this is an addition to your main Dyson... Then get it. The cleaning head is about 1/3 the size of a full size Dyson. As you can imagine this means it takes a lot longer to clean a room....also it is not as strong as the full size. If you are looking to replace a dust buster or stick broom... This is perfect.

On the upside, this vaccum is small and easy to manuever. On the downside, the "suction power" is over-rated -- even for hardwood floors. I bought this as a refurbished model, I would have returned it if I had paid full price. If you want a cool looking vac, then this is your machine. If you are truly concerned about suction, then go with another model (or manufacturer).
Small but powerful6/24/2012
The power of the vacuum is amazing especially for the size. Nice size for small places.
I needed a vacuum for my lower level. This unit beside having a great price has performed flawlessly.
5 kids/ 1 dog = 1 Dyson(Refurbished)6/20/2012
I would be lying if I wasn't hesitant about purchasing a refurbished product for over $200; but with a brand like Dyson - I was willing to try! I received this item Monday night from UPS. Promptly assembled and used. So far so good! I had some issues with it on delicate carpet but researched how to use and fixed problem.
I just recived my Dyson and I love everything about it. It is smaller that I expected but so powerfull. I have a toodler a dog and 3 ferrets so vacuuming is everyday job thank to dyson it is so much fun great on carpets and wood floor so quiet and easy to clean. absolutely love it:)
