- Dyson cyclone technology captures more dirt and mircoscopic dust than any other with no loss of suction
- Radial Root Cyclone? technology- airflows remodeled to maximize suction power
- Turns on a dime for greater control
- Triggerhead? tool- the only turbine head controlled at the handle means no bending down to adjust from carpets to hard floors

Dyson DC39 Multi Floor Canister Vacuum DC39 Multi Floor is a full-size Dyson canister vacuum with Ball technology for greater maneuverability. Wheeled vacuums can be awkward – heavy to pull, head the wrong way and collide with obstacles. A Dyson Ball vacuum cleans without the awkward moves, turning on the spot. DC39 Multi Floor also has a central steering mechanism for greater control. The pivot point is located near the center of the machine, so it can make tighter turning circles and more easily follows the user’s path.
Dyson cyclones capture more dirt than any other. DC39 Multi floor has Radial Root Cyclone technology with remodelled airways to maximize suction power. Like all other Dyson vacuums, DC39 Multi floor doesn’t
The Messiah of Vacuums,
This is the best vacuum ever. I have been a proud dyson owner for the past 8 years, my first was a purple DC07 Animal and that vacuum has been a trooper and still works just as good as when I bought it. So why a new vacuum? This one has all the bells and whistles that turn a staunch feminist into Donna Reed. It is that much fun to vacuum.
Out of the box, it takes five seconds to snap everything together and you are ready to go. I have no idea what the other reviewer is complaining about regarding the plastic but this is high quality all around. The plastic is smooth and has a matte finish (no scratches!) and is NOT BRITTLE so it won’t snap. And nothing on my old dyson ever broke and that one was all plastic too.
Once I got going, I never had to stop. I started on the sea grass hallway rug, moved to the wood floor, moved back to the low pile rug in the living room and then into the kitchen. The vacuum is light weight, very easy to maneuver and no switching attachments. And is sucked everything up with no problems. Onion skins under the pantry shelf, sticky rice from my three year old’s dinner, twigs and leaves from my husband’s boots, sand from the driveway. All gone in seconds.
Then I carried it upstairs (and I didn’t even notice, it was soooo light!) I vacuumed my bedroom which is all medium pile carpet. WOW did it get tons of stuff up. I hadn’t vacuumed in two weeks and it got all sorts of gunk out of the carpet. And I could get the wand all the way under the dressers, changing table, crib and bed. WOW. The old dyson upright can’t do that.
Then I quickly swapped the turbine head for the crevasse attachment (all neatly stored on the handle) and sucked the cobwebs off the fan and corners of the ceiling. And the wand is light and extends easily.
This vacuum rocks and is worth every penny. The ball design is great and it just follows you around the room.
I’m still loving this vacuum and I look forward to Saturday morning when I can get my “therapy” session in. Works just as perfectly despite all the abuse I’ve met out: stomping on the hose, dragging it up the stairs by the hose, vacuuming with the ball on its side (didn’t notice that it had tipped), pulling the crap out of the electrical cord (its a tad short but how else would it fit into the small housing) and keeping it running constantly for over 90 minutes during some marathon cleaning..
Here are some more pros and cons as I’ve been using it.
Still sucks like a champ, even when WAY OVERFLOWINGLY FULL
All the attachments are awesome
REALLY easy to clean the turbine head, unlike my old upright model
Turbine head not good on very thin area rugs – I have a very cheap thin 8×10 area rug I got at home goods with a thin rug pad underneath. That combo is just not working with the dyson, the suction is so strong that it sucks the carpet up or the turbine just stops. There are a few ways to adjust the suction by pulling on the levers on the handle to help but nothing seems to work. I can push the turbine and lift one lever, but that only works so-so. I’ve resorted to using the “flat out” attachment which is annoying but works. Dyson works fine on my other regular Pottery Barn wool area rugs. So maybe its just my Dyson is too snobby for Home Goods.

Sucks – in a good way,
After finally retiring my beloved Hoover Windtunnel canister vacuum – I decided to replace it with this Dyson.
Assembly was easy – I gave up with the instructions (pictures only – but not very informative) and had it up and running in about 5 minutes. I vacuumed an area rug with my Hoover first (it still works – but is now held together by duct tape and rubber bands in several areas). After going over it a second time with the Dyson – I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of dust it pulled out of the carpet. There was a couple of pieces of lint (looked like a down feather) that I had to go over several times in order to vacuum it up – but otherwise it did a good job. Going off the area rug onto the hardwood floor was easy – you just push a button in the handle to turn off the brush so the floor doesn’t get scratched. The canister is quite light and easy to pull around – and emptying it is a breeze. I would suggest emptying it into a large (outside) garbage can – otherwise dust may fly everywhere.
My only complaint is that because it’s made of plastic – some of the parts seem rather flimsy. With my old hoover – plastic parts would break off here and there – to the point that it’s almost unusable. I fear the Dyson may suffer the same fate. The flimsiest bit seems to be the latch on the bottom of the dirt cup – I guess time will tell. Thankfully – there is a 5 year warranty. I will update this review if needed.
PROS: Cleans carpets/hardwood floors well
Easy to empty
Light and easy to maneuver
CONS: Expensive for a mostly plastic vacuum
Some of the plastic pieces seem flimsy.
Directions are useless
The head/wand apparently “clips” to the ball for storage – ehhhh – good luck with that.
After using this vacuum for over a month – I just wanted to update my review with a couple of observations.
POSITIVES: So maneuverable – and the slim head profile gets under some of my furniture that my old vacuum was unable to.
NEGATIVES: Dog hair tends to cling to the outside of the extendable wand due to static electricity.
Does not pick up all the dog hair on the carpet – I still see some embedded in the carpet after vacuuming. The problem seems to be with the carpet brush – it does not make contact with my short napped carpet. My old hoover did a much better job with it’s powered, automatic height adjustable carpet brush. This is a little disappointing – seeing as it is about 4 times the price of my old hoover.
After 6 months of nearly daily use – I have to say that I can’t recommend this vacuum for the following reasons:
1) Some plastic parts have broken off. While they are not critical pieces – it’s annoying on a vacuum this expensive.
2) It clogs really easily. There is a bend where the hose meets the intake by the canister – and it narrows considerably. Dog hair accumulates there – and I have to try to fish it out at least twice a week. Because of the bend – this in no small feat.
3) It consistently leaves dog hair behind on the carpet – which builds up to the point where I have to drag out my old hoover to clean it up and start with a fresh slate. I don’t use the hoover every time – if you’re wondering – because some pieces have broken on it that require me to hold it together when I vacuum. It does a superior cleaning job – despite this.
I’m not sure why this vacuum is such a lame duck. My mom’s upright dyson is about 8 years old and works so much better. I just wished that I had returned in during my 30 day window…..now I’m stuck with a vacuum that doesn’t really vacuum. C’mon Dyson – I know you can do better!!
