Never used a Dyson, but isn’t the idea with the compacts you bring it up the stairs with you, just sitting it on a stair behind as you vacuum? Like I say, never used one, but that’s the impression I got from their ads.
Has anyone gone from a full size upright to one of their compact models?
In the specs it says the compact ones only have half the suck power.
Also does a compact one have enough reach to to do a set of stairs?
We have had a DC35 for 18 months and are happy with it. Makes it very easy to vacuum, just grab it and go, no heavy awkward unit to lug about. Not a chore to get out, by the time i would have got our old one from under the stairs with the DC35 I’ve got it out, cleaned and put it away. We only have a small house and don’t have thick shag carpet. Just do rooms as and when they need doing, only an issue if you wanted to do a lot at once the battery may not last.
MIL liked ours so much she bought one. Easy for old people to do the stairs and carry upstairs too.
