Cordless Vacuums for Hard Wood Floors

Dyson Floor Tool Designed for Hardwood Floors

What makes Dyson Cordless Vacuums Unique: Dyson invented the first bag-less vacuum (using cyclonic technology). Recently Dyson invented the modern cyclonic cordless stick vacuum (there are many imitators). Dyson is also known for strong, powerful, suction, now in cordless vacuums. Dyson stick vacuums have the power of an upright, with lighter weight and without cords. Dyson uses high quality poly-carbonate plastics (the same material used in riot shields).

Dyson V7 Mini Motorized Tool

Dyson’s Mini Motorized Tool for Car Interiors, Upholstery, Stairs, and Pet Hair.

The fit and finish of Dyson products is a cut above the competition. Dyson also has many tools not seen on other cordless vacs. The latest innovation on the Dyson V11 is a LCD status screen that shows you how much time is left on the battery, what mode you are in, and provides maintenance alerts.

Most Dyson cordless vacuums come with the Mini Motorized Pet Tool (shown on left). This powerful tool can pick up dust, dirt and pet hair from stairs, upholstery, and car interiors. While the competition tries to copy Dyson, they never seem to achieve the same quality.
