Dyson DC59 Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaner
DC59 is Dyson’s latest Digital Slim cordless vacuum cleaner. It’s powered by the Dyson digital motor V6, which spins up to 110,000 timesa minute – up to 3 times faster than conventional motors. This 350W motor has a higher wattage than its predecessor and contributes to the machine’s ability to produce powerful suction. DC59 is the most powerful cordless vacuum. 15 cyclones, arranged across two tiers, work in parallel to capture microscopic dust. Each cyclone has been re-engineered to increase airflow and generate high centrifugal forces. Dyson engineers put the same thought into developing floor tools as Dyson cyclones. DC59 comes with the latest motorized cleaner head, engineered to be lighter and improve debris pick-up. The newly configured brush bar consists of carbon fiber filaments to remove fine dust from hard floors and nylon bristle strips to remove ground-in dirt from carpets. The cleaner head is now also wider than its predecessors, the DC35 and DC44, providing greater surface coverage. DC59 Animal also comes with a Mini motorized tool for tough tasks such as removing hair and dirt from upholstery and confined spaces. It has a run-time enhancing trigger – on when you need it, off when you don’t. The trigger grip releases instantly, meaning battery power is only used for cleaning – allowing 26 minutes of cleaning time (6 minutes on boost). For fade-free power, DC59 uses a re-engineered nickel manganese cobalt battery, customized to deliver the level of power and battery life that the machine needs. It transmits 1.5 times more power than its predecessor.
DC59 Animal Technology
Dyson engineers find ways to make things work better. They improve existing technologies and invent new ones. The DC59 Animal cordless vacuum cleaner has three key Dyson technologies: the Dyson digital motor V6, 2 Tier Radial cyclones and carbon fiber cleaner head technology. The Dyson Digital Motor V6 DC59 is powered by the Dyson digital motor V6. This power-dense 350W motor spins at up to 110,000rpm – up to three times faster than conventional motors – and delivers 50% more power than its predecessor, the Dyson digital motor V2, used in DC44. This contributes to DC59’s ability to produce such powerful suction. 2 Tier Radial Cyclones Dyson has been continually refining cyclone vacuum technology since inventing it more than 20 years ago. DC59 has new 2 Tier Radial cyclones – an arrangement of 15 cyclones, working in parallel, across two tiers. Each cyclone has been re-engineered to increase airflow and generate high centrifugal forces, to capture fine dust. Airflow is channeled through the center of the cyclone assembly, maximizing suction power. Dirty air enters the outer cyclone and is spun around a vertical axis, generating centrifugal forces that fling larger debris and hair from the airflow into the bin. A shroud within the outer cyclone means it captures more large debris, allowing refinement of the inner cyclones to capture fine dust. The air then passes through the 15 inner cyclones working in parallel. Vortex fingers guide air from inner cyclones reducing turbulence and noise. Carbon Fiber Cleaner Head Technology DC59 Animal has the latest motorized cleaner head, with 100% more cleaner head power than the DC35 to drive bristles deeper into the carpet with more force. The newly configured brush bar consists of carbon fiber filaments to remove fine dust from hard floors and nylon bristle strips to remove ground-in dirt from carpets. A self-tightening mechanism keeps the brush bar stable and a dust capture channel prevents dirt from escaping back to the floor, increasing pick-up. The floor tool has been engineered to be lighter and wider compared to DC44, providing greater surface coverage. Its low profile cleaner head stays flat to the floor when the machine is fully reclined. And the neck has been slightly extended, making the machine taller and putting less strain on the user. For easier steering, it has improved V-Ball technology. With the V-Ball located closer to the head for an improved turning circle, the floor tool steers smoothly with no awkward moves.
Many other cordless vacuums remain switched on from the moment cleaning starts. Battery power is wasted between cleaning tasks. Dyson Digital Slim vacuums have a run-time enhancing trigger. Trigger grip releases instantly, meaning battery power is only used for cleaning. It allows 26 minutes of cleaning time (6 minutes on boost). On when you need it, off when you don’t. The new battery transmits 1.5 times more power than the battery in DC44 and is customized to provide fade-free power. There’s a Boost mode button on the back of the machine which, when activated, provides up to 6 minutes of increased suction power for more difficult tasks. DC59 Animal comes with a Mini motorised tool for tough tasks such as removing hair and dirt from upholstery and confined spaces. It also has combination tool which converts from a nozzle to a brush tool for dusting and a crevice tool for cleaning in tight gaps and narrow spaces. The DC59 has a detachable wand and tools for cleaning up top, down below and in-between. With the wand detached, the handheld vacuum can be used to clean stairs and inside a car or boat. And with its ergonomic design, DC59 fits naturally into the shape of the hand – with its center of gravity located towards the grip for easy handling. When not in use, DC59 slots into a docking station for charging. The station also holds the additional tools and attachments. The bin on a Dyson vacuum cleaner is transparent so you can see when it needs emptying – and just how much dust, dirt and pet hair your new Dyson vacuum has picked up. It is hygienic to empty – just push the button to release the dirt.
2 Year Parts & Labor Warranty
Your Dyson cordless vacuum cleaner is likely to take a few knocks and bashes during everyday use – but that’s nothing compared to what Dyson puts its machines through during testing and development. All Dyson Digital Slim cordless vacuum cleaners undergo a lengthy and rigorous testing program. That’s why DC59 Animal comes with a 2 year warranty – parts and labor.

Now back to the Dyson. . . so, having a house with 4 floors, we thought it’d be handy to have a second vacuum, and the cordless, slim DC59 Animal seemed perfect, and having a vacuum with attachments might come in handy. We splurged and bought it (locally; not through Amazon). Took it out of the box, put it together, charged it, and tried it out. Wow, how fun! It’s great being free to walk around wherever I need to without having to worry about the cord. The suction seemed good (especially on max power), and the way the head swivels around furniture legs and gets in that tight spot next to the toilets is GREAT! I changed to the brush attachment and lifted the thing up to get a big, dusty vent close to the ceiling. Bing, clean! Cleaned the floors, base boards, carpets, car. . .this vacuum is FUN! Too bad the charge runs out before my enthusiasm does. Then when it is re-energized (3 hrs later), I, unfortunately, am not. Wish it had an option to change out the battery like my cheap little Swivel Sweeper does.
So while it was charging the second time I thought I’d figure out where and how to mount the unit on the wall. First I thought I’d hang it in our hall closet, but the cord wasn’t long enough to reach the outlet around the corner. Ended up mounting it in a corner in the kitchen. Not pretty, but handy. It’s easy to get the vacuum on and off the holder, which is nice, and it automatically plugs in and starts charging when you hang it up. I was surprised to find that the unit doesn’t hold all the attachments; there’s one left over that I have to figure out what to do with—keep it on a nearby table? Make my own holder for it? Very inconvenient. Seems it would’ve been simple to make one more holder on the top of the unit.
After playing with this fun little vacuum for a month now, here is how I’d rate it:
Great attributes: Fun, lightweight, compact, fairly quiet (on low speed), no cord, easy to put on and take off charging base. Great on hardwood, stairs, low pile carpet, easy to get to spider webs and vents high on walls, great at zooming around chair legs, low profile so great under beds and sofas.
Downside: Long hair gets easily tangled in the rotating bristles, has a small dust bin, the dust keeps opening on its own (what a mess!) until I got in the habit of making sure it was clicked tightly shut before using (which I forget every now and then). It’s also VERY messy to empty. First, the red lever is hard to press to get the bin to open. For some reason if I try to push down on the right side, it won’t work, but the left side does. Then it opens and dust bellows everywhere. And then most of the dust/debris stays inside the chamber (see pic) and I need to manually get it out (ick). I have found a fork to be the best implement to scrap the debris out with. Still, it makes a horrible mess. And the bin is so small that I have to empty it several times in one vacuuming session. Another con--when using on max speed--which is what I almost always use now--the charge doesn't last long at all. I can't even get one of the levels of our house vacuumed in the 6 minutes or so it lasts. It also does not have strong enough suction to clean my shag rug, plus when I pull the vacuum toward me the head flips up and doesn't even touch the carpet anymore. Need to get the trusty Oreck out for that. Oh, another thing that bothers me about this Dyson is the way air blows out the sides right where you hold it, and often ends up blowing in my face, especially when leaning over to get under a sofa or reaching up to get some cobwebs near the ceiling. And there are things it just doesn't pick up--some types of leaves, tiny stones that get dragged in the house from our shoes, and bits of packing peanuts (son emptied a large box of peanuts onto the floor; the Dyson would just not suck up what seemed like thousands of tiny bits of the things left over after he'd swept up the full peanuts).
For a $400 vacuum I was pretty much expecting flawless design and exceptional utility. It is a fun vacuum, and useful for things like stairs and ceilings. But for this price, there should be much more attention to detail and quality. If you must use plastic, use a higher quality, please, starting with the dust bin closure mechanism. I'd suggest Dyson read reviews on their products and make changes accordingly.
This new DC59 looks similar to DC44, but it is a complete revamp of almost every aspect:
1. The motor is more powerful, 1.5x more than DC44, and 3 times more than any other cordless vacs.
2. 2 Tier Radial cyclones, twice the number of DC44, helps physically separate out dirt from air better.
3. Filter is now much easier to take out and wash, just pull from the top. In DC44, you had to "break" the vacuum in half to take out the
4. Trigger is redesigned to be lighter. If you vacuum the entire house with DC44, your index finger gets tired from squeezing the power trigger, it's much easier now.
5. Longer / shorter battery life. In normal use, DC59 has 26 mins of battery life, 6 mins more than DC44. But in boost mode, it has 2 mins less battery life than DC44, much means the motor really works harder.
6. Easier to clean. The dirt release switch now can be used from both sides. Makes it easer for left handed people. The clear bin can also be detached now, can be rinsed in water.
7. Redesigned floor attachment. It has a design that's effective on both carpet and hardwood floor. You never need to switch a dial like in conventional vacuum machines.
8. Less hair tangle. The new floor attachment makes it easier to clean trapped hair than the one came with DC44.
9. Relocated charging indicator light. In DC44, the charging indicator is on the power adapter, makes it impossible to see the charging status when the vacuum is mounted on the wall, and power adapter is hidden behind something. The light is now on the vacuum itself.
10. Easier to release attachments. It looks like the release mechanism has been improved.
Overall, it's a big upgrade if you owned the DC44 or any other handheld vacuum. If you've never tried a vacuum like this, it will change your life.
Price is a little outrageous for a vacuum machine. I think Dyson should've priced it at the same level as DC44, and lowered DC44's price by $100.
