Dyson DC34 Multi Floor Handheld Vacuum, The Problems persist

Straight out of the box this looks great. Sleek, lighter than the early models & easy to hold. Charging is via a ‘plug-in’ charger that has a green light which goes out once this is done. The dyson’s used to come with a cradle that you could screw into the wall & slip the vacuum into but these cost extra now. The suction is a big improvement on the early designs too as is the staying power which, despite what the ‘blurb’ may say, is about 7 minutes on ordinary mode and 4 minutes or so on extra. This may not seem like long but this is for small jobs not vacuuming the house. So for doing the car or a long set of stairs this is spot on. The fact it can be almost completely taken apart means even fine dust that makes a complete mess can be vacuumed. Just remember to clean the filtersproblems?.

Versatile and very good suction. Bought for mother for birthday as i have one and she has always wanted one.

Dyson DC34 Multi Floor Handheld Vacuum with Longer Run Time

  • Dyson digital motor gives DC34 twice the suction power of any other handheld
  • Patented Root Cyclone technology for no loss of suction
  • Dual power mode 15 minutes of high constant suction or 6 minutes on MAX power
  • 22.2V lithium-ion battery recharges up to three times faster than others
  • 2 year guarantee parts and labour are covered

Battery useless after a year. Battery useless after a year.

Pleased with product and quick delivery.

Good enough, a handy addition. We have recently moved into a three story house and the worst part about vacuuming is doing the stairs, with so many stairs i knew a hand held vacuum would be the solution. I choose dyson because we have had an upright dyson for about 10 years now and the suction is still really good (if you keep up to cleaning the filters). Upon receiving this dc34 i found it well packaged with a modest number of accessories, the unit itself is very lightweight, almost like a child’s toy. The suction power is nowhere near that of my upright mains powered dyson however it does do the job required well and it is quick and easy to empty. I particularly like the main attachment that offers duel function (much better than having two separate attachments). Not only is it perfect for the stairs but i’ve also found it ideal for light fittings, cob webbed room corners and crumbs in the kitchen. The battery soon runs out if you get carried away. Since buying the dc34 i quickly realised that i would need a wall mounting bracket that would allow me to store it neatly and also charge at the same time. This is the one that i purchased http://www.

Dyson DC34 Multi Floor Handheld Vacuum with Longer Run Time : I got this a week or so ago because i got fed up with my upright dyson attachments being awkward. I have not been disappointed – it’s great. I have just done all the edges upstairs in a three-bed terrace, inc a quick once over of the stairs (having used all of the attachments on them the first day i got it) and some of the downstairs edges and awkward corners and it still hasn’t run out of charge. While i can see some people wouldn’t like the trigger, it does mean the limited power is being directed where it’s needed and therefore does last longer in terms of area covered. I think the only annoyance i’ve found is that the attachments don’t attach to the machine. But not too much of a problem. It’s a great little machine for all the little awkward jobs inc stairs.

    A really wonderful cleaning tool which gets daily use. I bought a second one and keep one on each floor of the house. Ideal for stairs, nooks and crannies.

    I am now a crumb-free loser. I didn’t think i was the type of person to be irrevocably changed by a product, much less a household item. Yet since the arrival of my two children, life has changed to such a degree i have literally dreamt about dust and mess. I had hankered after a handheld dyson for some time, but the need to pay the pesky mortgage and feed my children came first. So i was delighted when it came on a black friday deal for half price, and we had vouchers to pay most of the balance. Soldsince its purchase, it has been made good use of, as with grim determination, i battle into daily war with my kids against various spillages, mud and a varied manner of unidentified bits, which probably mostly stem from their filthy nostrils. For the first time in years i have a clean staircase (who can really be faffed vacuuming stairs with a huge machine?), and crumbs are no longer trod into the carpet for seven to fourteen days until one of us summons the time and energy to hoover up properly. It is not without fault, though, hence the four stars. Because now i must admit to transforming into the kind of person who cares about dust-free skirting boards and a crumb-free sofa.

    Four years and still going strong, great for small cleaning tasks. . I’ve tried many handheld vacuums and most just aren’t powerful enough to do any proper cleaning. The dc34 changed this as it delivers the goods on power however it does have its flaws. The battery kept getting slightly disconnected during use with the first one i received after about 12 months of use. A quick call to dyson explaining the problem and they promptly shipped out a new one. I’ve had the replacement for about three years now without any issues. In the box you get the battery, charger and tools for cleaning different surfaces. I always use it with the “max” mode on as without it, it’s pretty useless. This does mean you only get about 5 minutes of power but that’s usually enough for most cleaning tasks this was intended for. Great for picking up crumbs, cleaning dusty surfaces, small floor surfaces – works great in my little kitchen.
