Remember the Dyson Hard? I told you about it last week, and now we’ve got the official deets on the handheld vacuum/mop.
The Dyson Hard will go on sale September 3rd and will be price at $329.99. Dyson has told me that the Dyson Hard is “not a repurposing of other machines”, such at the DC35 and the DC44. However, there is no disputing the Hard’s similarities. That said, you won’t be able to use the heads of the DC35 or DC44 with the Hard, which really isn’t that big of a deal. Personally, I would have liked to have seen an add-on feature for those aforementioned units, especially since I have the DC35.
As for those wipes: Dyson will sell a 12-pack for $6.99, though they say it will be compatible with other industry standard wipes. Of course Dyson will include a set of sample wipes in the purchase of the Hard. And of note, the Dyson Hard will last for up to 15-minutes on a single charge.
Dyson’s latest cordless technology vacuums dirt and wipes grime – in one action.
Hard floor cleaning is problematic. First you vacuum, then you mop – moving dirty water around, leaving floors soiled. Steam cleaning has its own problems, bound to a cord, waiting for steam. And battery powered 2-in-1 cleaners barely improve matters, relying on poor suction, leaving dust behind. All in all, time consuming and inefficient.
Engineered for hard floor cleaning, the Dyson Hard™ vacuum cleaner combines powerful suction with a wet wipe to remove dust and grime in one action. A double-edge cleaner head sucks up dirt and debris – before and after the wet wipe – with each stroke, leaving the wipe to remove stains and grime.
James Dyson “Cleaning hard floors is frustrating and ineffective. You vacuum, then mop – rigmarole. Propelled by our power dense digital motor, our engineers have designed a machine that vacuums and mops simultaneously. One machine, two jobs – one action.”
The Dyson digital motor V2 allows for perfectly poised floor to ceiling cleaning. Lightweight, with a center of gravity firmly in the hand, the Dyson Hard™ vacuum cleaner’s double edged cleaner head can be removed, adding a crevice and combination tool for up top, down below, hard-to-reach and in-between spaces. Remove the wand for cleaning cars and worktops.
Dyson digital motor: Powered by the Dyson digital motor V2, which is one third of the size of conventional motors, yet spins at 104,000rpm. This power dense motor allows the Dyson Hard™ vacuum cleaner to be compact and light with high performance.
Root Cyclone™ technology: Dyson’s patented Root Cyclone™ technology has been concentrated, spinning dust and dirt out of the air using centrifugal force.
Fade-free battery: A lithium-ion battery delivers 15 minutes of fade free performance. For stubborn dirt, there is a boost setting for 6 minutes of high intensity cleaning.
Materials: Dyson engineers used materials that would stand up to tough abuse in real home environments. The machine’s body is made from ABS Polycarbonate – the same material found in riot shields. Dyson engineers designed a reinforced wand, made from aluminum, to allow for extra push force in picking up grime.
Wipes: Dyson engineers worked with scientists to develop wipes for the machine. Two different wipes are available with the Dyson Hard™ vacuum cleaner – Hard floor and Wood nourishing. Each wipe is designed for different hard floor surfaces, and different tasks. The machine is also compatible with industry standard sized wipes found in most stores.
