We also noticed, they started selling the Dyson "Multi-Floor" model with the slightly smaller ball which is essentially the Dyson ball model DC65.
I don't want to bore you with a lot of technical details, but I just wanted to highlight a few things before you watch the video below.
NOTE: I was stunned at the results, and you can read my reasoning behind the results after the video.
Power & PerformanceWhy did the Dyson Multi-Floor win? In my opinion, the Dyson Multi-Floor uses the dust bin in a better way to produce more vacuum lift, as shown by the vacuum tester in the video.
In the Dyson advertising for the new Dyson "Big Ball", they discontinued the use of filters (kind of) in favor of a dust bin designed to trap more dust. They eliminated the dust bin filter, but kept the exit filter which they say does not need to be replaced. Only time will tell if that will be true or not, since exit filters can get very clogged, and cause overheating.
I believe when they did this, they created more restriction on the motor, cutting down on its power. They also added a vacuum release valve on the dust bin, which also reduces vacuum pressure at the carpet.
We favor the Dyson "Multi-Floor" for a couple of other reasons as you can see in the comparison below:
A case can be made for the Dyson Big Ball if it had more power, but other than the exclusion of the dust bin filter, I don't see the need to purchase a heavier, less powerful vacuum for more money.
