Dyson Big Ball Multi Floor Upright Vacuum Cleaner
Experience remarkable cleaning power for any floor in your home with the Big Ball Multi Floor by Dyson. Its 2 Tier Radial™ Cyclones house 15 cyclones working parallel for increased airflow with an impressive suction power of 250AW. Other vacuums fall down and stay down. Dyson's Ball™ technology provides improved stability and maneuverability as well as allowing the Big Ball Multi Floor vacuums to pick themselves up. Equipped with a large, high-capacity bin, this Dyson vacuum allows for more cleaning time before it needs emptying.
The Big Ball Multi Floor's carbon fiber floor tool picks up fine dust through its carbon fiber filaments and removes ground-in dirt with its stiff nylon bristles. Its articulating wand rotates in three directions and extends up to 4.1ft for greater control in even the most hard-to-reach places. Dyson's Big Ball Multi Floor vacuum also includes a combination and stair tool that can be switched in and out with its quick-release option.
In 1978, James Dyson became frustrated with his vacuum cleaner's diminishing performance. Taking it apart, he discovered that its bag was clogging with dust, causing suction to drop. He'd recently built an industrial cyclone tower for his factory that separated paint particles from the air using centrifugal force. But could the same principle work in a vacuum cleaner He set to work. Five years and 5,127 prototypes later, he had invented the world's first bagless vacuum cleaner.
James Dyson's vacuum cleaner was first sold in Japan, the home of high-tech products. Known as the 'G-Force', it impressed the Japanese with its performance and quickly became a status symbol, selling for $2,000 a piece. It also won the 1991 International Design Fair prize in Japan.
With the royalties from G-Force sales, James Dyson was able to set up his own company, Dyson Ltd. In 1993 he opened his own research centre and factory in the Cotswolds, and set to work making a new vacuum - one that would capture even smaller particles of dust. It was called DC01, for 'Dual Cyclone', and it was the first vacuum cleaner to maintain 100% of suction 100% of the time.
Today, there are Dyson machines in over 65 countries around the world. Dyson has grown from one man and one idea to a technology company with over 1,000 engineers worldwide. But it doesn't stand still. At its core is an ever-growing team of engineers and scientists. More ideas. More invention.
