Rides on a ball.
No loss of suction.

Strong suction at the cleaner head

DC42 has a self-adjusting cleaner head that seals in suction on carpets and hard floors. There’s no need to turn awkward dials or press buttons.

Active base plate

The cleaner heads on most upright vacuums need to be manually adjusted for different floor types. If this isn’t done, a gap is created between the cleaner head and the floor, and suction is lost.

The latest Dyson upright vacuums have an active base plate that self-adjusts across every floor type. It maintains close contact with the floor at all times, automatically raising and lowering. Suction isn’t wasted – it’s sealed in.

DC42 vacuum cleaner cyclone technology

Captures more dirt than any other cyclone

Dyson cyclones are more efficient than others – more dust and dirt is flung out of the airflow and into the bin.

Radial Root Cyclone™ technology

By arranging the inner cyclones in a radial formation, airflow can be channeled directly through the centre of the cyclone assembly once it has passed through both stages of separation. This improves flow efficiency, preserving air pressure and maximizing suction. It also allows refinement of the inner cyclones – to capture more microscopic dust.

DC40 Vacuum ball

Rides on a ball – steers easily into difficult places

No more awkward moves – DC42 can be steered with a turn of the wrist. And it’s streamlined for cleaning in difficult places.

DC40 ball technology

Ball™ technology – a dynamic turning circle

Fixed wheels are not designed to turn corners. But a ball can turn on the spot. As the ball’s axis is titled, its turning circle tightens – allowing full and accurate steering control.

The vacuum’s key components have been engineered to fit inside the ball itself. This gives the machine a streamlined profile, allowing access to tight spaces and lowering its center of gravity to make it lighter in the hand.
