October 19, 2006 Gone forever are the days of frustrating, ineffective handheld cleaners. Loss of suction, poor pick-up and useless clogged filters may have once been standard fare, but will no longer interfere with your cleaning if you buy a Dyson Root 6 Cyclone, or at least that’s what Dyson is claiming. The Root 6 uses a lithium ion battery and comes with a specially designed combination brush/stair tool for versatile cleaning. Given that the company’s other products always do the business as claimed, we figure that makes the Root Cyclone a likely winner when it goes on sale next week at US$150.

The Root Cyclone technology to spin dirt and dust out of the airflow at extremely high speeds, maintaining constant suction. The Dyson Root 6 has twice the suction of other handhelds in use. Existing handheld cleaners rely on filters and screens that clog and begin to lose suction and power from the moment they are turned on. This means crumbs, dust, and allergens are left hanging around your home.

"For years, handheld cleaning has been frustrating because the existing products simply don't work as they should," said James Dyson. "Existing machines clog and lose suction -- they just don't work. After more than two years of development and testing by a dedicated team of engineers, we're delighted to have the answer to these problems with our Dyson Root 6."
