Dyson Intros smaller Lighter DC 47 & DC 50
Dyson today introduced two new “Animal” series dust busters, the DC47 and the DC50. The former is canister-shaped, while the DC50 stands upright. Both are designed to be much smaller and lighter than their predecessors, with the DC47 weighing in at 13.47 pounds and the DC50 tipping in at 11.6 pounds. They both boast 2 Tier Radial cyclones to extract more microscopic dust, a new Ball pivot that’s supposedly more maneuverable and carbon fiber brushes that promise to remove more dust from hard floors due to a lack of static build-up. If you are eager and excited about both Dyson products, the the DC47 Animal is priced at $449.99, while the DC50 Animal is $499.99. Stay tuned for our review soon.
DC47 is Dyson’s first cylinder vacuum with 2 Tier Radial™ cyclones. Two tiers of smaller cyclones work in parallel to increase airflow and extract more microscopic dust. It is mounted on a ball making it highly maneuverable and light to pull. Hygienic bin emptying: DC47 has a trigger-bin emptying system. So with the press of a button, dust and dirt can be emptied directly into the bin. Bin capacity: DC47 can hold up to 0.15 gallons of dust and dirt. Size: 17.6 inches (length) x 8.7 inches (width) x 11.5 inches (height), Weighting 13.84 pounds.
DC50 is a compact vacuum with the performance of a full-sized upright. It is mounted on a ball for maneuverability and a self-adjusting cleaner head maintains constant suction at the cleaner head, across all floor types. Hygienic bin emptying: DC50 has a trigger-bin emptying system. So dust and dirt can be emptied with the press of a button. Bin capacity: The machine can hold up to 0.21 gallons of dust and dirt. Weights 11.6 pounds at: 42 inches (length) x 14 inches (width) x 11 inches (height)
1DC47: Two tiers of cyclones capture more microscopic dust.
DC47 is Dyson’s first cylinder vacuum with 2 Tier Radial™ cyclones. Two tiers of smaller cyclones work in parallel to increase airflow and extract more microscopic dust. It is mounted on a ball making it highly maneuverable and light to pull.
James Dyson said, “2 Tier Radial™ cyclones are the latest development of our patented cyclone technology. By making the cyclones smaller, the air travels faster meaning we can extract more microscopic dust from the air.”
2 Tier Radial™ cyclones: Other vacuum cleaners still rely on bags or filters to trap dust, losing suction over time. DC47 uses two tiers of smaller cyclones. Two tiers of cyclones capture more microscopic dust. The smaller the cyclone the faster the air spins, separating more microscopic dust. Every angle of each airway is honed to ensure microscopic particles are spun out of the airflow and captured in the bin.
Ball™ technology: Sitting on a ball, DC47 is lightweight, maneuverable and has a low center of gravity for negotiating tight turns and getting around furniture. Coupled with a central steering mechanism, the machine is light to pull, can pivot on the spot, and follows obediently without snagging on corners.
Carbon fiber brush bar:
The Dyson Carbon fiber brush bar has both nylon bristles and brushes made from pure carbon fiber – used for its anti-static properties. The carbon fiber brushes reduce static build-up on hard floors to remove fine dust, and the stiff nylon bristles remove ground-in dirt from carpets.
Availability: The DC47 Animal will be available beginning May 13th, 2013.
Small and mighty
DC50: Concentrated Dyson technology
DC50 is a compact vacuum with the performance of a full-sized upright. It is mounted on a ball for maneuverability and a self-adjusting cleaner head maintains constant suction at the cleaner head, across all floor types.
James Dyson: “Dyson engineers have concentrated our patented technology. The brief was to produce a small, efficient, powerful machine that performed like a full-size one.”
1859 prototypes of the machine were created by over 100 Dyson engineers over three years. They miniaturized each component, questioning materials used as well as size, and efficiency. The cyclone pack acts as an integral part of the machine’s structure and by eliminating ducting around the ball they have streamlined the machine’s profile, making it more maneuverable.
2 Tier Radial™ cyclone technology:
Dyson’s 2 Tier Radial™ cyclones capture more microscopic dust. Every angle of each airway is honed to ensure microscopic particles are spun out of the airflow and captured in the bin.
Advanced cleaner head technology:
A direct drive motor sits inside the brush bar lowering the cleaner head profile and making it easier to clean under furniture. The self-adjusting base plate adapts to the floor surface, providing constant suction at the cleaner head, whatever the floor type.
DC50 is the first Dyson upright vacuum cleaner with patented carbon fiber brush bar technology. On carpets the stiff nylon bristles remove dirt. On hard floors the ultra-fine antistatic carbon fiber filaments remove fine dust.
DC50 uses third-generation ball technology making it highly maneuverable in the tightest of spaces. The concentrated technology and carefully selected materials mean that DC50 weighs just 11.6 pounds.
Availability: DC50 Animal is available beginning May 13th, 2013.
