DC44 Animal Refurbished vacuum is a Dyson Digital Slim vacuum cleaner - the cordless machine that doesn’t lose suction. Powered by the Dyson digital motor, it is the most powerful cordless vacuum. It comes with a mini motorized tool to remove pet hair and dust from awkward spaces and upholstery. Dyson engineers developed DC44 Animal for versatile floor-to-ceiling cleaning. The center of gravity is located towards the grip for easy handling up top, down low, and in-between. It’s suitable for every floor surface: carpet, ceramic, vinyl, and wood.
DC44 Animal has an increased run time compared with the DC35: 20 minutes of constant high suction. Boost mode enables 8 minutes of higher suction power for more difficult tasks. A docking station conveniently stores and recharges the machine when not in use. The motorized floor tool has two types of brushes: anti-static carbon fiber filaments remove fine dust from hard floors; stiff nylon brushes remove ground-in dirt from carpets. With an increased power motor driving the brush bar, the cleaner head has double the power of DC35 - this means that the bristles are driven deeper into the carpet with more force. The detachable long-reach wand is made from lightweight aluminum. When the wand is removed, the motorized head attaches directly to the machine for cleaning stairs and car interiors. Like all Dyson vacuum cleaners, DC44 Animal has patented Root Cyclone technology - so it doesn’t lose suction as you clean.
Patented Dyson TechnologyRoot Cyclone Technology for No Loss of Suction Some vacuum cleaners rely on bags and filters to trap dust and dirt. Air is meant to flow through tiny holes, leaving dust and dirt behind. When you start to use the vacuum, these tiny holes quickly clog up with particles of dust. This chokes the flow of air, so the vacuum cleaner loses suction. Dyson vacuum cleaners don’t rely on bags to trap dust and dirt. They use patented Root Cyclone technology, which spins the air at incredibly high speeds. The cyclones inside a Dyson vacuum cleaner generate centrifugal forces many thousands of times the force of gravity. Dust, dirt, and pet hair are flung out of the airflow and straight into the bin. No bag, no loss of suction.
Dyson Digital Motor: Smaller, Lighter, More Power-Efficient DC44 Animal is powered by an intelligent Dyson digital motor. It’s smaller, lighter, and faster than conventional electric motors. The Dyson digital motor in DC44 Animal spins up to three times faster than conventional electric motors. It makes DC44 Animal the most powerful cordless vacuum.
FeaturesMotorized floor tool with carbon fiber filaments: The motorized floor tool on DC44 Animal has two types of brushes. The anti-static carbon fiber filaments remove fine dust from hard floors. Stiff nylon bristles remove ground-in dirt from carpets.
Articulating Cleaner Head: The cleaner head pivots 180° without losing floor contact. A self-adjusting sole plate maintains optimum contact from floor to floor. And V-Ball technology enables smooth steering around furniture and obstacles. No more awkward moves.
Detachable Long-Reach Wand: The wand is made from lightweight aluminum. It reaches high, low and into awkward gaps - ideal for floor to ceiling cleaning. You can also remove the wand and attach the motorized tool for quick clean-ups around the home and for removing dirt and dust from the car.
No Extra Costs: Most other cordless and handheld vacuum cleaners are still designed to need replacement bags and filters - and the cost soon adds up. DC44 Animal uses patented Root Cyclone technology, which spins dust and dirt from the air straight into the bin. With no bags or filters to replace, there are no extra costs to worry about.
6 months parts and labor warranty: Your Dyson vacuum cleaner is likely to take a few bumps and bruises during everyday use - but that’s nothing compared to what Dyson puts its machines through during testing and development. All Dyson vacuums undergo a lengthy and rigorous testing program. That’s why DC44 Animal Refurbished comes with a 6 month warranty- parts and labor guaranteed by Dyson.

Dyson Refurbished VacuumsDyson refurbished vacuums have been stripped down, cleaned out, reassembled and thoroughly tested. They’re restored to a fully functional condition. In short, they are everything a Dyson machine should be- they work properly and don’t lose suction. Dyson refurbishes vacuums that are returned to us by retailers or consumers. Refurbishing these machines, rather than disposing of them, means that the parts and materials are re-used instead of wasted.
When a machine comes to us to be refurbished, it is first stripped down as far as necessary. Components removed from the machine that meet our high standards of quality are kept and cleaned. Most damaged or broken components are sent away for recycling. The core of the machine is thoroughly cleaned and new parts are added to replace damaged or cosmetically unacceptable parts discovered during the stripping down process.
Just like our brand new machines, the rebuilt machine then undergoes a comprehensive series of electrical and performance tests to ensure that it works as it should. For our vacuums, one of the tests carried out is a suction test. All refurbished vacuums are electrically tested in compliance with electrical and safety requirements.
One of the primary differences between a new Dyson machine and a refurbished Dyson machine is its appearance– a scratch here or there or a slightly clouded bin may provide a clue that it has been previously used. After it has passed all of the tests, the machine is then packaged and sent out. All Dyson refurbished vacuums come with a 6 month parts and labor warranty.

Fast forward a few months. She is in love with this thing. It is simply so easy to use. She is now using it daily and shouting out "this machine is awesome". We have it hanging on a shelf (I haven't been able to convince her to put up the wall bracket in the kitchen). We have a lab and his white hair is everywhere. Now instead of making a production with the big Dyson we simply grab the cordless and vacuum in seconds. The portability and lack of a cord really make a difference.
Battery is very good. Only ran out of power once so far.
Recommend "max" setting in order to really suck up dog hair etc.
It is best to frequently empty container to get best results.
The attachments can get clogged occasionally.
Really all you need except for deep rug vacuuming.
1) Very easy to use and operate.
2) Light weight with good build quality
3) Works very well on hardwood and tile / linoleum floors
4) No Cord ? Yeah!! - Big Yeah!!
1) Not very powerful suction
2) Doesn't work well on carpet
3) Very small dust container
4) Short operating time (20 minutes) vs. long charging time (5 hrs.)
5) You must hold trigger all the time for operation
6) It doesn't hold any extra attachments on the machine and some / not all can attach to the charging station
7) Cleaning heads (there are two different ones) are a bit small for me
Now for my impressions:
We have 2 dogs that shed a lot and constantly, and even though we have a lot of hardwood floors, we do have a number of area rugs throughout the house. We also live in the southwest where there is a LOT of dust and dirt.
The Dyson works great at cleaning both the dirt and pet hair off the hardwood, but is very poor at vacuuming the dog hair off the area rugs. It is faster for me to pull out our canister vacuum and hook it up and use it than to use the Dyson. Also, I have to empty the Dyson several times each time I vacuum which can get a bit old. I have also run out of "juice" several times, so I have to recharge the vacuum before I can finish with all I need to do. As I mentioned in the Pro and Cons, it doesn't have as much suction as I thought it might, yet it seems to pick up everything pretty well on the hardwood floors, but it does struggle with dog hair on the rugs which are Turkish and Persian and so have a short nap and should be fairly easy to clean I would think. Our fairly inexpensive canister vacuum does a good job with the rugs.
All in all, I do like the vacuum for quick and easy jobs on both our hardwood and tile floors, but I still use our canister for all the big jobs or when I need to clean the rugs. If you are looking for a handheld vacuum to replace your upright or canister, this probably won't do if you have either kids or pets. It might be fine if you live in a small house where you don't have much dirt, dust, and or pet hair to deal with. It does seem to be very well engineered and well built. Just make sure that you realize that it has it's strengths and a few weaknesses that you might find a little disappointing if you aren't aware of what this machine is built for and what it can and can't do.
Finally, I do love the fact that there is no cord. That in and of itself makes this a useful product if you keep the limitations in mind. A thumbs up with a caution about it's shortcomings.
PS... this review is for a refurbished model. I was very lucky and got one that looks like it was sent back only because some one didn't like it as it was in what looked like brand new condition. Hope you get one that nice as well as the savings over a new one is substantial and I'm not sure that I would buy one at the full price.
