The Dyson DC24 Ball vacuum cleaner is smaller and less powerful than other Dyson uprights. However it is very light and highly maneuverable. It is the perfect vacuum for some but not for others. Whether the DC24 is the right choice for you depends on your needs.
Though smaller than other Dyson models, the DC24 features much of the same advanced technology, including the HEPA filtration system and Root Cyclone Technology that ensures strong suction (for its size). The 1/5 gallon canister features push button bottom emptying capability, a feature many consumers indicate works well. Also, the HEPA filter which is washable and guaranteed for the vacuum lifetime, ensures small particles will not be circulated back into the room. HEPA filtration is beneficial to asthma or allergy sufferers, and the DC24 is certified asthma friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America 최상위파워볼.
The Dyson DC24 also sports Dyson’s unique Ball technology making this lightweight all-floors vacuum extremely easy to maneuver. The Ball Technology involves encapsulating the vacuum motor in a ball (creating a low center of gravity) and using the freely rotating ball as the contact point for easy 360 degree movement. The DC24 Ball weighs 11.65 pounds, making it Dyson’s lightest upright machine. It is actually about 3 lbs lighter than the DC18 Slim which is marketed as a Dyson’s lightweight upright. The DC24 also has a small footprint of 11″x13.7″ and a handle that retracts, meaning it can be stored in a reasonably small space.
A reversible wand allows vacuuming of stairs, drapes, and hard to reach places. The DC24 has a 6.5 amp motor, 115 air watts of suction power, and comes with a 20 foot cord. The unit also has a motorized brushbar for efficient carpet cleaning and it can be turned off for bare floor cleaning. In addition, the DC24 comes with a 5-year parts and labor warranty.
Pros and Cons
Many consumers who live in small homes or apartments have indicated that the DC24 is an ideal vacuum cleaner with sufficient cleaning power and a small footprint. It also appears to be popular for those with large recreational vehicles.
Although the DC24’s light weight and brushbar make it an ideal all-floors vacuum, it lacks the power and dirt canister size to be truly effective in a larger home. The suction power, in terms of air watts is about half of that of other Dyson uprights, and while some reviewers claim it does a credible job of picking up pet hair, others feel the suction is insufficient to do a good job of picking up larger particles such as cereal.
While consumers have not indicated specific issues with the DC24 Ball durability, some owners have written that the vacuum feels flimsy due to the overly plastic construction and light weight. Other areas where consumers indicate dissatisfaction include the relatively short 20 foot power cord and the vacuum price. Some folks feel that the small size and limited suction do not warrant a $300 plus price tag.
The more positive DC24 Ball vacuum reviews center around its light weight, the lifetime HEPA filter, maneuverability, ease of emptying the dirt canister, and the lengthy 5-year warranty.
