The Dyson Ball vacuum cleaner is a revolutionary vacuum that uses advanced suction technology and has an easy to remove dirt bin, as opposed to the traditional vacuum bags found in older models. But what makes the Dyson Ball stand out from its sweeper counterparts is the fact that it sits on a ball, making it easy to turn sharp corners or do a 360-degree spin while cleaning. If you see that the dirt bin is full, the next step is to empty it out, which is a fairly simple process.
