How to Empty the Bin on a Dyson DC14
The Dyson DC14 has powerful suction that can draw dirt quickly out of carpet fibres (woollen carpet texture image by Tolbxela from Fotolia.com)

The DC14, a discontinued model of the Dyson bagless vacuum cleaner line, uses Dyson's patented Root Cyclone technology to create a powerful centrifugal force that sucks and spin dust and debris right out of your carpet. The debris gets deposited into the vacuum cleaner's clear plastic bin on the outside of the unit. You can see into the bin, which lets you know when it reaches capacity and needs to be emptied.
