Dyson DC39MF Multi-Floor Canister Vacuum Cleaner
It's more maneuverable but a Dyson? Not any more.
I have the first Stowaway Dyson canister. There were many complaints about its lack of maneuverability and general awkwardness. The complaints were well founded but most reviewers ended up saying that they would not return it because for the first time their house was really clean. This is true. It's powerful and very effective. When this new version came out I ordered it because I could see if was way more comfortable to use. Today I tried it for the first time. I was so disappointed! The brush is not powered, just moves with the suction of the motor. I re-cleaned with my old model and a whole lot more dust came up. So the result is that the famous Dyson cleaning power is gone. It's more handy, lighter to use and definitely more maneuverable. But what made a Dyson different to other not so efficient canisters is definitely gone. I believe the ball uprights have the old powered brush so they are probably a better choice if you wish for a really dustfree kind of clean. And awkward or not I would definitely keep your old canister model.
