Big clean-up jobs require a big vacuum, and that's exactly what Dyson has launched in Australia this week with the arrival of its new Gen5 Outsize.
Essentially a larger version of the Gen5 Detect vacuum that released locally late last year, Dyson's Gen5 Outsize has been redesigned to offer a 150% larger bin and 25% wider cleaner head.
While that's likely to make the Gen5 Outsize less manoeverable than a smaller vacuum, it will cover more ground in less time and hold a larger amount of dust and debris, leading to shorter vacuuming sessions and longer relaxation time.
Additionally, the Gen5 Outsize offers swappable batteries this time around, allowing for up to 70 minutes of suction — perfect for those with enormous homes.
In terms of power, Dyson's Gen5 Outsize sports a fifth-generation Hyperdymium motor, which is capable of 250 air watts of suction for the thorough lifting of microscopic dust and larger debris.
Speaking of dust, the Gen5 Outsize boasts a fully sealed HEPA filtration system which, according to Dyson, is said to capture 99.99% of particles.
Dyson's Fluffy Optic cleaner head, which uses a laser to make dirt on your floors easier to see, has also been re-engineered for the Gen5 Outsize, and is said to reveal twice as much microscopic dust than it did on the Gen5 Detect.
As you might expect, the Gen5 Outsize doesn't come cheap, with its price starting at AU$1,649. You can pick it up directly from Dyson's online store or via selected retailers.
Of course, if the Dyson Gen5 Outsize sounds like more than your home needs, you could always opt for the regular Gen5 Detect. You can find the best Gen5 Detect prices currently available below.
