Dyson’s smallest, quietest Ball vacuum cleaner yet!


Retailers know homes are getting smaller. The average new-build one-bedroom home in the UK is just 46 square metres (the size of a tube carriage on the Jubilee Line); and 57% of people say there is not enough storage in their homes for their possessions. Compromising on space shouldn’t mean compromising on technology.

Designed for the technologically astute Japanese, DC49 is engineered to be Dyson’s smallest, quietest Ball™ vacuum cleaner yet. The Dyson digital motor V4, allows DC49 to deliver the performance of a full size machine, in a small package.

James Dyson said:

“Investing in our core technologies means we can develop leaner, more efficient machines. Using the new high-speed Dyson digital motor, we have developed a machine that is smaller and quieter, yet even more powerful. “

Powerful but quiet: Engineers were challenged to develop Dyson’s quietest vacuum. Acoustic engineers developed simplified airways in the floor tools, funnelling the turbulent air downwards to dampen the sound. They adjusted the motor’s orientation, and smoothed the airflow inside the vortex fingers of the cyclone to reduce sound from the machine.

Concentrated technology: DC49’s body is lightweight, weighing just 2.7kg; making it 30% smaller than the DC47 Ball™ vacuum cleaner.

Ball™ technology: The machine is light to pull, can pivot on the spot, and follows obediently without snagging on corners. It has a low centre of gravity for negotiating tight turns and getting around furniture. There are over 100 components arranged in the ball including the motor, ducting and 5 metres of cable.

Improved floor tools: DC49 comes with both turbine head and motorhead floor tools. These have been re-engineered to improve pick-up and sound quality, and reduce weight. Simplified airways decrease noise levels and a self-tightening mechanism keeps the brush bar stable. A dust capture channel prevents dirt from escaping back to the floor, increasing pick-up. The new configuration of carbon fibre filaments and nylon brushes removes fine dust from hard floors and ground-in dirt from carpets.
