It utilises what essentially is a wet wipe attached to the vacuum head. The vacuum head is no ordinary design though, as it has dual suction channels that are located on the top and bottom of where the wipe is attached so that dust and debris will be sucked in while the wipe picks up wheatever grime and stains are on the floor.&nbsp;As the wipes are disposable, you'll&nbsp;have to get a new pack on occasion and they go for a good RM45 for a pack of 12. However Dyson did mention that generic wipes can also be attached, though Dyson's own wipes do come in two formulations, one for wood and the other for normal tiles.&nbsp;</p> <p>The Hard does have some limitations though. With a 15 minute operating time on normal and 6 minutes on max mode, there might not be enough juice in the vacuum to clean up the entire house. Also it's not really a true mop in a sense that it is still a normal vacuum and is not able to suction liqiud in. So don't expect it to clean up any major spills or you're likely to end up with a damaged vacuum cleaner.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="426" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/bigmop.jpg?1378107197" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Major suction </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Hard isn't the only vacuum that Dyson has launched.

How it does this is that the motor's orientation is now placed horizontally in the ball and the airways have been simplified to smoothen airflow by funneling the turbulent air downwards to take the edge off the noise while at work.&nbsp;It also sports the the low center of gravity and high maneuverability of the previous models with improved turbinehead floortools that gets deeper into carpets and lets less dust escape back to the floor.&nbsp;</p> <p>The DC48 is available for&nbsp;RM2,599&nbsp;and the DC57 is available for RM2,159 and it comes with Dyson wipes.
