The Cyclone V10 is not a novel concept. This vacuum is the latest in a long line of Dyson cyclonic floorcare models, and the V10 is the direct successor to the Cyclone V8. Just like the V8 model before it, the Cyclone V10 is mostly all electric motor. You attach or remove various accessories to the V10's main motor unit. What cleaning tool you choose depends on the job you're about to tackle.
