    Default Best way to empty a dyson?

    So I finally got a dyson vaccuum cleaner. Its seems to clean the carpet well but does anyone know a good way of emptying it without it blowing everywhere & into ur face?

    At the moment im really disappointed in it as surely a product that costs $1000+ has a better way of emptying it?

    I have tried emptying it outside directly into the big garbage bins but it still goes everywhere even with the slightest wind. It doesnt all come out at once so I have to tap it which makes even more dust fly everywhere meanwhile im breathing in all the particles.

    I have tried emptying it into a shopping bag outside so the bag catches it all but this is no better.

    Does anyone else have any suggestions? Everyone always says how good dysons are but at the moment im not liking it one bit! Cant think how breathing in all that dust is good for u.

    I want my olg bagged vaccum back but surely there has to be an easier way to empty dysons??

    Hmm I don't have that problem. I just unclip the dust catcher thingy, take it out to the bin, press the open button and it all falls straight into the bin. I hold it down into the bin a bit for any blow-away bits but it's not really an issue. I wait until its almost full so it's fairly compacted.

    I put the barrel bit that I pull off the machine into a garbage bag and shake it in there? As in hold it in the opening and tap it onto the edge of the bin or something hard and all the debris falls into the bag. Does that make sense how I've described it?
    I don't have trouble with it flying everywhere. Pull it out and close the bag into a knot.

    I hold it into a garbage bag & unclip, give it a shake, tie up garbage bag.

    Ive done this for over 4yrs without a problem

    I'm also not loving my Dyson for this reason. It also needs emptying every time I use it! Never had a problem with my bagged Miele and think I will go back to it. Dyson is so overrated and I don't even think it picks up as much off the floor.

    Also the fact that it needs to be emptied into a garbage bag after every use is so much worse for the environment than the biodegradable paper ones that only need emptying every few months.

    Rant over.

    Im starting to think the same. Needs emptying after every second room. The 'max' line that it cant fill up past is barely a quarter of the barrel! Hoping it just takes time to get used to!
