Dyson Vacuum Suction Pictures

Here are pictures of all the extra things my Dyson picked up versus my Oreck XL.

These are from 2 carpeted rooms, about 12×12 and 14×20:

The Dyson filled up quickly and I had to empty it. It was pretty gross, but the next ones are even worse.

These are from my bedroom – 12×12 berber carpet and my small kitchen:

What makes it worse is that all this extra dust and dirt was sitting inches from head where I slept:


Pretty disgusting whatever way you look at it. People think I am nuts for buying a $500 vacuum (I paid around 300) but I think the pictures speak for themselves.

I’ve been wanting one, but now I REALLY want one. I’m gonna tell my husband: not in 5 months. Life is short. Now honey, NOW!!!! I’ll even use the mattress vacuum – sounds powerful enough to suck up invisible mites. Can’t wait to use it in the back of the jeep where dog hairs are deeply embedded in the carpet. Long cord and all – I’m sold.

I bought the Dyson DC14 Drive at Target a few months ago. I have the same experience every time I vacuum, and the canister fills up exactly like yours does! Really gross, but this thing is nothing short of a miracle. I also purchased the wide angle floor attachment to use in the living room, and it works great! Love this thing!

The pickup is similar to the Eureka BOSS vacuum I use on another floor. I know there’s a lot of dust and dirt in there, but it also seems like both my vacuums brush bars are taking of carpet fibers which make up a lot of the canister. I hope it’s negligible, but probably will mean replacing carpets sooner? Or maybe it’s just me. Other than that, I love my Dyson. Using the hose and attachements is soo much quicker and easier than with the Eureka.

Amazing. This thing sucks so hard, that if it had breasts, I’d marry it.
