Product Description


DC40 Origin is a Dyson Ball upright vacuum cleaner for every floor type. The machine’s cleaner head has an active base place, which self-adjusts automatically for optimal contact with all floor types. On hard floors the base plate lowers to create an efficient seal, and the brush bar lifts clear off the floor to protect delicate surfaces. On carpet, the base plate rises and the brush bar lowers for optimum bristle penetration- removing ground-in dirt and pet hair from different depths of carpet pile. And because the cleaner head adjusts automatically, there are no awkward dials and you don’t need to bend down to make adjustments.

Dyson cyclones capture more dirt than any other cyclone. DC40 Origin has Radial Root Cyclone technology with remodeled airflows to maximize suction power. DC40 Multi floor also has patented Ball technology. It turns on the spot, which allows you to maneuver more easily around obstacles and into awkward spaces. And because the motor and other key components are located inside the ball, the machine has a lower center of gravity- making it even easier to steer.

Patented Dyson Technology

Dyson engineers are constantly testing and inventing, trying to find new ways to make their technology better. As they work, they file patent applications to protect their inventions from copycat manufacturers. That’s why the only place you’ll find Dyson technology is inside a Dyson machine.

Radial Root Cyclone technology: Ordinary vacuum cleaners rely on bags to trap dust and dirt. As you use them, the tiny holes in the bag clog up with particles of dust. This restricts the flow of air, so the vacuum cleaner loses suction. Dyson vacuum cleaners don’t rely on bags to trap dust and dirt. They use cyclone technology, which spins the air at incredibly high speeds. The cyclones inside a Dyson vacuum cleaner generate centrifugal forces many thousands of times the force of gravity. Dust, dirt and pet hair are flung out of the airflow and straight into the bin. No bag. No loss of suction. Dyson has been continually refining cyclone technology since inventing it more than 20 years ago. DC40 Origin has Radial Root Cyclone technology. Reconfigured air channels and improved flow efficiency reduce turbulence and preserve air pressure, so that the inner cyclones can extract more microscopic particles. These refinements help remove more dirt, dust, allergens and pet hair for the airflow.

Ball technology to help you steer with ease: Dyson Ball upright vacuum cleaners use patented Ball technology to overcome the steering limitations of fixed wheels. They ride on a ball, which turns on the spot so you can steer with ease, changing direction with just a turn of the wrist. The ball itself is made of glass-reinforced polypropylene- the same material used in the manufacture of car dashboards. It combines high impact strength with the resistance to distortion. The ball also holds the heaviest component, (the motor), positioned towards the base for a lower center of gravity and greater stability.


Self-adjusting cleaner head: Many upright vacuum cleaners use fixed settings and their cleaner heads don’t self-adjust to different floor types. And the bigger the gap between the cleaner head and floor, the more suction power is wasted. DC40 Origin has an active base plate. It creates the optimal cleaner head contact for every floor type, reducing air leaks and retaining suction power on all floor types- wood, carpet, vinyl and tile.

Instant release wand: DC40 Origin has an instant release, long reach wand for cleaning stairs and awkward areas- it stretches up to 5 times in length. There are no separate parts to assemble.

Extra tools: DC40 Origin comes with a Combination tool and a Stair tool. The Combination tool has a debris nozzle that converts to a brush tool for dusting. The Stair tool removes dirt and dust from corners and against vertical edges of stairs.

Captures allergens, expels cleaner air: The Dyson DC40 Origin has HEPA filtration and a lifetime washable filter. Dyson cyclones capture microscopic particles down to 0.5 microns in size, including pollen, mold and bacteria.

Hygienic bin emptying with push button release: The bin on a Dyson vacuum cleaner is transparent so you can see when it needs emptying- and just how much dust, dirt and pet hair your new Dyson machine has picked up.

No extra costs: Other vacuum cleaners are still designed to need replacement bags and filters- and the cost soon adds up. Dyson vacuums don’t have bags and have lifetime washable filters, so there are no extra costs to worry about.

5 year parts and labor warranty: Your Dyson vacuum cleaner is likely to take a few knocks and bashes during everyday use- but that’s nothing compared to what Dyson puts its machines through during testing and development. All Dyson vacuum cleaners undergo a lengthy and rigorous testing program. That’s why DC40 Origin comes with a 5 year warranty- parts and labor guaranteed by Dyson.

About a year and a half ago I took the plunge and bought my first Dyson. I went with the DC40 after doing some research on the different models that Dyson offered at the time. It has been great and I have been very happy with my purchase. Recently, Dyson changed the name of the DC40. It was originally called the DC40 Multi Floor, but now the name has changed to the DC40 Origin. This is not a redesign. The only changes to this vacuum are the name, the MSRP (now $399, was $499), and possibly the color of the canister. The specs are exactly the same. I believe Dyson made this change only so that they could sell at the new, lower MSRP on their web site. I posted a review on the original DC40 Amazon listing last year that seemed very helpful to people and I made updates throughout the first year that I owned the vacuum. I still own the DC40 and it is still working great. I have re-posted my review below because it still applies to the current DC40. Hopefully this review is helpful to you.

ORIGINAL REVIEW (05/05/2012):
So I took the plunge and bought my first Dyson. I went with the Dyson DC40 and ordered it from Amazon a couple of days after it came out for $400 (20% off Mother's Day special). I don't have any pets, so I didn't think I needed to pay the extra for the Animal version. It was only $50 dollars more than the previous model DC25 and had the new Dyson Radial Root Cyclone technology and a couple of other new features. I figured, for $50, I might as well have the latest technology and it has been around for a few months in the DC41 Animal, so it isn't their first try at it.

Just for some background, I'm upgrading from an old Hoover Windtunnel bagless upright vacuum. I have never really been that happy with it.

By Erin on April 11, 2014
Did alot of research before purchase and decided to get the DC40 Origin. In a nutshell, this thing is great. Others said it made it fun to vacuum and they are right. I am shocked how much stuff it picks up just a week after the last vacuum.
So, to the details. Some said it was packaged well. It was. The same engineers that designed it must have designed the box and packing. It was in there tight. Maneuverability is very easy. Some said it took some getting used to, but we picked it up quick. You can turn the head on a dime to snag stuff in corners. The only drawback to the maneuverability is the ball keeps you from laying the unit flat and rolling under your bed or coffee table shelf like you may have been used to.
Some folks said it was loud. We had a Kenmore canister vac before and this unit is quieter. We don't think it is loud at all.
The cord length is the same as our other vac (25 ft). I suppose the bigger your house the larger your rooms and the longer you would want to the cord to be. We think the cord is fine.
Some said the plastic it was made of seems cheap. It is a very lightweight unit, which makes vacuuming and carrying up/down stairs very easy. We don't find the plastic to be cheap or easily breakable. There's no reason to be rough with the unit. Handling it with normal care seems adequate to prevent breakage. It has fallen over a couple times and nothing has broken.
Some said that the cannister fills up quickly. It is amazing how much it picks up (suction is incredible), but emptying it is so simple it is really not a problem.
The hose is indeed stiff and a little difficult to work with. You do have to be careful not to pull the unit over.

Have to do a small background on why we bought this for the review to be correct. We have a Dyson DC07 that is almost 8 years old and the best vacuum we ever had. 3 minor problems over that time of which 2 Dyson cleared up on fixing for us on the phone and one required buying some Gorilla glue. Don't think that is a bad record. So we thought it was time to help ourselves out, being retired, and wanting to make things easier. Now will go through the pros 1st. Love the narrower head that lets you get between and around things better. Once you get used to using the ball for steering, its fun and obviously easier. The suction capability does seem a bit better than our original unit. Now for the cons, and these will be a personal thing depending on what you want. The shorter cord is a real pain. If you have a whole level of carpet, cant do it all from one outlet like the other. Bought a correct wire gauge extension of 10' to solve that annoyance. The unit is smaller and lighter weight by design. Almost seems flimsy by comparison so will have to see how it holds up. On board storage of tools isn't as convenient or solid. The extension hose for stairs is also a bit shorter than the big model so a bit of a stretch, actually, to do a whole set of stairs. The smaller dust bin is up to you but almost have to empty it every time. Having to wash the filters every 30 days instead of 6 months like the older one is a minus too. In conclusion, a good system but not the best they did or do make.
I help my wife with the housework since I retired so this is my area of responsibility and why I am writing the review. Mike Patterson
