Dyson DC41 Vs DC47: Comparing the DC41 and DC47

DC41 or DC47 – Which is Best for You?

This brief account will provide an overview of two slightly different Dyson vacuums in contrast to one another – the DC41 full sized upright and the mid-compact DC47 canister ball vacuum – we will then compare them specifically through highlighting their differences. This will in turn provide you with a clear indication as to what both vacuums can offer you and from that which is best suited to cleaning in your household.

Dyson DC41 Overview

Design & Practical Features

A full sized upright vacuum cleaner weighing in at 7.8 kg that measures: 107.1 by 39.4 by 34 cm, despite being rather large it is actually very easy to maneuver given that it is fitted with the ‘updated’ Dyson ball technology (and of course also being ergonomic in design) — allowing you to pretty much ‘turn on a dime’. It also offers rather extensive practical specifications as well such as: the max reach of over 23 m (cord length: 9.4 + telescope reach: 14 m ) and a bagless bin capacity of 2.1 liters (hence meant for tackling mid to large sized houses).

Cleaning Performance

Dyson.com claim the DC41 to be capable of ‘twice the suction of any upright vacuum‘ (this is comparison to an EcoMax, Vax Air3 Max, Hoover Turbo Power & Hurricane) this is due to being fitted with the unique & updated Radial Root Cyclone technology and a huge constant suction power of 255 air watts — making it incredibly effective in removing dust, dirt and pet hair from any floor type (especially in conjunction with the self-adjusting cleaning head that allows for a more optimal suction performance as it adapts to floor type).

Accessories & Attachments

There are a few versions of the DC41 and with them come different accessories. The DC41 Multi-floor gets the combination tool & stair tool (quick draw) – the DC41 Animal gets these as well as the effective pet hair attachment: the tangle free turbine tool. The there is the ultimate DC41 Animal Complete which comes with all the accessories mentioned above including: stubborn dirt brush tool, soft brush tool and multi-angle brush (and more).

Dyson DC47 Overview

Design & Practical Features

A mid-sized compact canister vacuum (dimensions: 29.2 by 22.2 by 44.8 cm) that weighs in at just 6.08 kg but is also one of the first canister vacuums to be also fitted with a Dyson ball integrated into its center — this in turn gives a central based gravity making moving around with the DC47 practically seamless. Given its compact & a canister the practical specs are somewhat limited however with a max reach of just over 13 meters (telescope reach: 8.3 m + cord length: 5 m) and bin capacity of just 0.58 liters (therefore intended for a small house or flat).

Cleaning Performance

Given that it is relatively compact (i.e condensed), it is fitted with Dyson’s very latest technology in regards to the cyclone system — the two tier radial root cyclone mechanism — consisting of 32 cyclones to generate huge centrifugal forces to suck up microscopic dust particles. It is also capable of producing a 180 Air watts of constant suction, hence has an incredible high pick-up efficiency of dust etc. across all floors.

Accessories & Attachments

There are two versions: the DC47 mutli-floor which comes with a combination tool (which is basically a crevice tool for vacuuming small gaps that doubles up with a brush nozzle to allow powered dusting) and stair tool. Then there is also the DC47 Animal, that offers the two accessories above but also comes with the very well regarded tangle free pet hair tool as well.

The Difference Between the DC41 and DC47

There are quite a number of differences between the models: i) the DC41 is a ‘full sized’ upright, whereas the DC47 is a ‘compact’ canister/cylinder based vacuum, ii) this in turn causes a difference in their respective practical specifications — with them being more extensive with the DC41 (i.e the DC41 is meant for cleaning large to medium houses & the DCC47 for small houses & apartments) and iii) a clear difference (despite the updated root cyclone technology in the DC47) in cleaning performance, favoring the DC41.

Which Dyson Vacuum Should You Buy the DC41 or DC47?

It firstly depends on the size of your house — a larger one needs the DC41 and a more compact one will be better suited to a DC47. Then which version of the DC41 or DC47 you buy depends on if you have any pets, where if so I’d advise you to get the Animal version (or Animal Complete with the DC41) as the extra tangle free turbine attachment will certainly come in handy. Let me know which Dyson you buy and why?
