Should've gone for Dyson

I bought this to replace a Samsung hoover as it broke. What can I say? Should've gone with my gut instinct the first time and bought a Dyson. Not only does it come with a great guarantee but it sucks up so much! I have only used it twice and have had to empty it, its fantastic, should've gone for Dyson when my husband said so last time! Dyson forever.

The carpet pick up rating is D and the hard floor rating is A

If the carpet pick up rate is D and the hard floor rating is A, does that mean it is bad at picking up from carpets, or is the scale different?

3 Answers

It works brilliant on my short woven carpet on minimum suction power, but it may be different on other carpet types.

Also be careful with mats, rugs, curtains etc as they can get stuck in the roller brush head because the suction is so good on this vacuum cleaner, no problem on vynil floors though.


Hi there,

Please see the following link for more information regarding the rating system for vacuums - http://www.argos.co.uk/static/ArgosPromo3/includeName/vacuum-ecolegislation-at-argos.htm

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.


This scale is different

It states only 850 watts power, is this really sufficient enough?

Is 850 watts enough to clean deep into the carpet pile? my current cylinder vacuum is 2000 watts which does a great job but is too old now.

If you have a look at the Dyson DC40 Multifloor Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner's image gallery you'll see a list of the Dyson DC40's various functions' ratings. This model has a carpet pick up rating of D, which is at the lower end as the highest rating achievable is A.

I recommend looking at customer reviews for their impressions of the DC40's capabilities on carpet.

I hope this helps.


As I said in my review my bedroom carpet is quite thick with a deep pile and this machine is brilliant on it, it cleans right to the bottom of the pile and stands it up as you go over it. So the answer to your question is Yes it has plenty of power. I hope you enjoy it if you buy one.
