This particular Model needs some modifications

I purchased Dyson Model 448588-01 in December 23. Initially happy with the power and ease of control. After a couple of uses I found the motor kept stopping and starting as if the dust chamber was full. On closer inspection I discovered that lint particles were trapped in the upper chambers and virtually impossible to remove. After many attempts I had to use a wooden skewer to remove lint/dirt from each chamber which takes 10-15 mins to fully clean. I checked with another Model and this is not a problem as that particular chamber is sealed. Extremely unhappy with this particular Model. Would appreciate some assistance as how to fix this problem. Show details

easy peasy

I have never owned a stick vacuum before. I am pleasantly surprised. It is so easy just to grab it and go. The car, window sills, door tracks, variety of floors. 2 suction levels. Albiet, on high suction, the run time is not long. From completely flat to full charge only takes a couple of hours. I would be inclined to purchase this product again if needed. Show details

The perfect vacuum

We purchased this new from the Dyson eBay store and saved $300 off the retail price

Although it's now much older than the newer models, it still works like new and after 2.5 years of usage I haven't noticed and loss in suction or battery life

Works well on tiles, timber floors and carpet. Sometimes hairs can caught on the automatic brush but it's very easy to remove

We loved this product so much we purchased it for my parents as well as my in-laws as a gift Show details

Nasty design

Will never buy Dyson again.

-easy to get out and use
-accessories you get are good and useful
-easy to empty bin
-not overly noisy
-ok on tiles and hybrid flooring

-price, it is just not worth the money overall
-the design of the handle/trigger is awful
-vacuum power head is not great to maneuver
-overall, the battery life of 40 mins is ok
-accessories and the prices are a joke Show details
