Dyson DC59 Motorhead Cordless Vacuum
No cord, yet out cleans most full-size vacuums across hard floors and carpets*
Dyson DC59 Motorhead is the latest Dyson Digital Slim cordless vacuum. It out-cleans most full-size vacuums across hard floors and carpets* – without the hassle of a cord.
Dyson DC59 Motorhead has a direct-drive motor in the cleaner head. It generates 75% more brush bar power than DC59 Animal and its centralized weight pushes the nylon bristles deeper into the carpet to remove ground-in dirt. The cleaner head also has rows of ultra-fine, anti-static carbon fiber filaments to remove fine dust from hard floors. And because there’s no belt needed to drive the motor, the entire width of the cleaner head can be used for cleaning – increasing coverage.
Dyson DC59 Motorhead comes with additional tools for specialized cleaning.
Dyson DC59 Motorhead Technology
The Dyson digital motor V6
Suction is generated 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 the Dyson digital motor V2, used in Dyson DC44.
The motor’s small size and lightness are what enables a machine that is both versatile enough to clean from floor to ceiling, and powerful enough to clean better than most full-size machines across carpets and hard floors*.
Direct-drive cleaner head
Dyson DC59 Motorhead has a direct-drive motor, enabling 75% more cleaner head power than Dyson DC59 Animal. Because the motor is located within the brush bar itself, weight is evenly distributed, driving the nylon bristles deep into the carpet pile to remove dirt and dust.
Unlike conventional motor heads, there’s no need for a belt to drive the motor, so the entire width of the cleaner head can be used to clean the floor – providing uninterrupted edge-to-edge cleaning and greater surface coverage.
For smooth, easy steering with no awkward moves, it has V-Ball technology. The motor head stays flat to the floor when the machine is fully reclined, allowing cleaning under low furniture.
2 Tier Radial cyclones
Dyson has been continually refining cyclone vacuum technology since inventing it more than 20 years ago. Dyson DC59 Motorhead 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 directly 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.
Dyson DC59 Motorhead Features
Balanced for floor to ceiling cleaning
The detachable wand and extra tools enable cleaning up top, down below and in-between. With the wand detached, the handheld vacuum can be used to clean stairs with the motor head, or car footwells, upholstery and beneath car seats. Dyson DC59 Motorhead has a balanced, ergonomic design to fit naturally into the shape of the hand – with its center of gravity located towards the grip for easy handling.
Re-engineered nickel manganese cobalt battery
The new battery transmits 1.5 times more power than the battery in DC44 and is customized to provide fade-free power. In total it delivers 20 minutes of powerful suction, or 16 minutes when using the motorized tool. There’s also a boost mode button on the back of the machine which, when activated, provides 6 minutes of higher suction power for more difficult tasks.
Dyson DC59 Motorhead comes with a Mini motorized tool for tough tasks such as removing hair and dirt from upholstery and confined spaces. It also has a 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.
When not in use, Dyson DC59 Motorhead slots into a docking station for charging – so it’s always ready for big or small cleans. The station also holds the additional tools and attachments.
Run-time enhancing trigger
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. On when you need it, off when you don’t.
Hygienic bin emptying
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 a button to release the dirt.
2 year parts and labor warranty
Your Dyson cordless vacuum cleaner is likely to take a few hits 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 Dyson DC59 Motorhead comes with a free 2 year warranty – parts and labor.
Patented Dyson Technology
Dyson engineers are constantly testing and inventing, trying to find new ways to make their technology work better. As they work, they file patent applications to protect their inventions from copycat manufacturers. That’s why the only place you’ll find Dyson technology is inside a Dyson machine.
Dyson cyclone technology
Dyson cordless vacuum cleaners use patented Dyson 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 hair are flung out of the airflow and straight into the bin.
*Tested against upright market, dust loaded, using ASTM F608, ASTM F2607, & IEC 60312-1 5.2, 5.9.

UPDATE: After using up the battery and recharging it several times, it now holds a charge for 20+ minutes and I can vacuum my whole house without it dying, which is great. I still don't think it's 5 stars based on some of the things listed below, but I have also noticed, since my original review, that this vacuum has a hard time picking up things like a single Cheerio. So while I have to pick up larger things by hand, it does an awesome job of picking up dirt, dust and dog hair. My tile floors feel much cleaner after using this than when I use my corded Dyson or a broom. I haven't used my corded Dyson in almost 2 months and don't see that happening anytime soon. While this vacuum isn't perfect, I find myself using it and enjoying using it on an almost daily basis.
Original Review: I really wanted to give this 5 stars because it is so easy to use and does a great job, but it will not replace our almost 10 year old Dyson DC14 that still works perfectly. Mostly due to the fact that I can't clean my whole house on a full charge. I really like having it around so even though it won't replace our current vacuum it is a great addition.
Pros: Extremely lightweight which makes cleaning a breeze, especially stairs
Maneuvers so easily and can fit and reach under beds and coffee tables
Cleans just as well as the corded version
Great for doing a couple rooms in a hurry and touching up rooms in between more thorough cleanings
Transitions perfectly between tile and carpet without having to make any adjustments
Comes with a great assortment of attachments
Great for cleaning your car
Seems very durable. I rested it against a wall and it fell on the tile floor. I was sure the plastic canister had broken, but it didn't.
No place to store attachments on the vacuum to use while you are in the middle of cleaning to get in tight spots. So
you would either have to carry the attachment around with you or come back to the spots you missed when you are done.\
If you need to take a break while vacuuming there is no way to stand the vacuum upright without holding it. So you either have to lean it up against a wall and hope it doesn't fall over and break/spill, or you have to lay it down.
I mainly use the vacuum for a 42" x 62" black rug with very short rug fabric that my dog likes to lay on his back and roll around on. You can imagine how the dog hairs like to show up on a black rug. For years, I've used a Hoover Dirt Devil Platinum Force corded hand-held vacuum. All the carpet in my apartment amounts to 2 rugs the size I previously mentioned. The rest of the apartment is concrete floors. Perfect for cleaning up after a dog. However, I'd spend about a half hour or at least 15-20 minutes on my knees going back and forth on my knees trying to get that carpet clean.
I was seriously hesitant about getting a cordless rechargeable vacuum. I'd bought a Hoover one before and about the only thing it was good for was throwing immediately in the trash. It was that bad. The first time I tried my new Dyson out on the black rug it filled totally full in just a minute or so and I couldn't believe how much dust it picked up. However, I'd read a bunch of reviews on the Dyson before I'd bought it. And one concern was the size of the canister. I have to totally agree with their concerns. Mine filled up about 1.5 times on a 42" x 62" rug. That's roughly about 20 square feet. I could only imagine if a person was going to use it to try vacuuming a 2,000 square foot house that is 100 times the area. Now granted, the rug had a lot of hair on it. But we are talking 100 times the area. And if you have a pet, you're going to have tons of hair.
I have THREE recommendations for Dyson as an engineer based upon what I've seen from reviews and my personal use:
1. Make the canister bigger or make an option where the person can switch out and attach a bigger canister if they'd like. I realize the Dyson engineers were wanting to keep the weight down for ergonomic purposes. But people also hate carrying the device over to the trash over and over, especially when it is kind of hard if you have the extension with the motorhead on. I normally took the extension off when emptying it over the trash. The canister needs to be bigger even at the expense of the weight.
2. I'm not particularly a fan of the release. It works, but I wouldn't mind seeing it extended about an inch on each side with a nice large thumb tab to easily press down on to release the canister dump.
3. I've noticed that numerous people have complained about the trigger on the vacuum. I see the intent by the engineers when they implemented the trigger. When you are trying to preserve the battery life as much as possible to keep people from complaining about how short the battery lasts, you do what you can to preserve the charge of the battery by only having the vacuum run when needed. The trigger is a good way to do that. And to their compliment, the spring on the vacuum is a very light spring. However, I might suggest placing the trigger on the backside of the handle at the top. So it sits in the area where you push the vacuum with your hand (at the joint between the thumb and pointing finger). For short periods of use, the trigger is ok where it is placed. However, with longer use I've seen how it can be a little tiring on the finger. By placing at the back, no trigger really has to be squeezed and the vacuum only operates when used.
4. The canister can be difficult to empty. The dog hair from my dog likes to get caught up between the filter/screen and the side of the canister. I'm sure Dyson might reply to not fill it so full because there is a max fill line. But even if you don't fill it full, just a fraction of full, the hair likes to get up between there being tough to remove. My suggestion would be a little straight angled piece or cork-screw shaped piece of plastic suspended from the top of the canister that can be spun around the circumference of the canister to wedge or cork-screw the dirt that is caught up there out, similar to how a grain auger moves grain. This would keep it light and still allow the dirt to easily fall out. Heck, one could even design it so that it spins around as the user pulls the release tab down, although that might add slightly to the weight.
My biggest complaint is likely the price. The price is kind of outrageous. This vacuum would still be a little on the expensive side at half the price. I can understand with the great suction that this vacuum has why the company charges so much. But that's no reason to rape consumers' wallets with an outrageous price. If there had been any other rechargeable vacuums that I'd thought would have worked well at a less expensive price I wouldn't have bought the Dyson. I think the price really scares a lot of potential Dyson customers off.
