The Dyson DC26 Multi Floor vacuum is a compact canister model with a retail price of $400, although you can find it on sale for $320 pretty easily. In this review of the Dyson DC26 Multi Floor vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then we can decide if it’s worth the premium price. As far as looks go, this model has all the style and appeal that any unit from this manufacturer has. I really can’t see how the canister could get any smaller than it is – otherwise, you would have a dirt cup so small that it would need changed 4 times every cleaning. Here’s a rundown of the features you’ll find on this unit: an air-driven brush bar, washable HEPA filter, 10 ft wand and hose, 9.2 amp motor, clear collection bin, easy-empty dirt container, carbon fiber brush bar, articulating floor tool, large canister wheels, and a 16.5 inch self-winding power cord. As you can see, there are not a lot of extra tools that come with this vacuum. I’m sure the main reason for that is because there’s not a lot of extra room to store them.
OK, onto the negative aspects of the Dyson DC26 Multi Floor vacuum. While I think the suction power is sufficient, it’s not quite in the same league as the bigger upright models. Also, it doesn’t have many tools, as I mentioned above. Although, the articulating floor tool is pretty useful. Another thing about this model is that it doesn’t do that great on high pile carpet, it does a much better job on the shorter carpets and bare floors. It would also be nice to have the power controls on the wand as well. Overall, I really like the Dyson DC26 Multi Floor vacuum cleaner. It’s on the pricey side, but I’m still giving it a 4.3 / 5 star rating.
