The Dyson Omni-glide stick vacuum is not lacking in originality. If Dyson has accustomed us to colorful devices, its architecture all in length, without real stick, is much more innovative. The idea is to handle the machine as easily as possible, to be able to turn it in all directions without being hampered by the shape of the handle, precisely. In addition, still due to the absence of this “pistol grip”, the Omni-glide can be extended as far as possible to vacuum far under furniture. Of course, this gripping appendage wouldn’t be as useful if the vacuum head wasn’t designed to be particularly maneuverable and agile.
To ensure flawless maneuverability and agility, the mechanical and mobile elements which allow the suction head to be placed on the ground, regardless of the inclination of the suction tube, are particularly flexible from front to back to be able to extend it to ground level. This articulation does not embed a rotating part since it is the whole of the Dyson Omni-glide which can be turned on itself thanks to the handle all in length. Finally, only the lateral oscillations (from left to right and vice versa) are limited.
Now let’s turn this famous head over. Unlike the vast majority of the suction heads of the other stick vacuum cleaners in our comparison (with the exception of the Shark models), it has two rollers which rotate in the opposite direction to each other. And to bring a little more maneuverability to the thing, Dyson has provided between the two brushes four small rollers freely rotating 360 ° placed on either side of the suction port. Thanks to them, the head can go back and forth (as is the case with the suction heads of other vacuum cleaners), but also from left to right without rubbing too much on the ground since their height is, very little. close, the same as that of the rollers.
As we wrote, the two brushes rotate simultaneously, but in opposite directions to each other. However, if we dismantle the rollers, we see that the head only carries a single motor which drives the brush “before”. The plastic part that holds them together also houses a gear system to prevent the motors from gearing down. This would lead not only to a greater weight, but also (and above all) to an increase in the price of the Omni-glide, two engines necessarily costing more than one.
As we can see, the very original Omni-glide suction head has been the subject of all the attention of Malmesbury engineers. But is it really that easy to handle? Well after a few minutes of use we can say that yes the bet is won. We pass the Dyson Omni-glide almost everywhere as long as the space to be cleaned exceeds 13 cm wide and 8 cm high, the dimensions of the head. We even take great pleasure in making it undergo the tightest turns or moving it widthways to test its agility.
The lab tests will be able to begin and we will not fail to reveal our first measurements to you.
