Digital motor technology
Other handheld vacuum manufacturers compromise on either weight or suction, because they have to choose between motors that are either weak or bulky.
Dyson handheld vacuums are powered by the Dyson digital motor. This power-dense motor uses digital pulse technology and a neodymium magnet to spin at up to 110,000 times a minute. Its small size means that the machines it powers can also be small, light and powerful.
The Dyson digital motor V6 inside DC61 has a 4-pole magnet, and supplies 50% more power than its predecessor, V2.
