Product information

The DC59 Animal is the latest Dyson Digital Slim™ cordless vacuum cleaner. It’s powered by the Dyson digital motor V6, which spins up to 110,000 times a minute – 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.

Suction is also enhanced by 2 Tier Radial™ cyclones. This involves 15 cyclones, arranged across two tiers, working in parallel. Each cyclone has been re-engineered to increase airflow and generate high centrifugal forces, to capture fine dust.

Dyson engineers put the same effort into developing floor tools as Dyson machines. DC59 comes with the latest motorised head, engineered to be lighter and improve pick-up. A self-tightening mechanism keeps the brush bar stable and a dust capture channel prevents dirt from escaping back to the floor, further increasing pick-up. The new configuration of carbon fibre filaments and nylon bristle strips removes fine dust from hard floors.

The DC59 Animal also comes with a mini motorised tool for tough tasks such as removing hair and dirt from upholstery and confined spaces.

Another new feature is the run-time enhancing trigger. The trigger grip releases instantly, meaning battery power is only used for cleaning. It allows 26 minutes of cleaning time. On when you need it, off when you don’t.

For fade-free power, DC59 Animal uses a re-engineered nickel, manganese and cobalt battery, customised to deliver the level of power and battery life that the machine needs.

Q & As


Dyson DC59 Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaner 4.8 5 18 18
Worth every penny Bought this to be able to do a quick 'whizz round' the kitchen at the end of the day for teenage/husband kitchen fallout/dog hairs etc. Wanted something easy to pull out of the cupboard and use, no faffing about, and something that went round chair legs with ease. For all these things, it is brilliant. Haven't had the 'big' vacuum out since I bought this. I am a die hard Sebo fan and it took a lot of convincing to go Dyson but this is one of the best gadgets I've bought and will earn it's cost over time. Very happy customer. 15 August 2014
Glad we bought it This seemed a rather expensive cleaner to buy but because of all the positive reviews about it we decided to go ahead. I am so pleased we did. There being no cord to deal with is a great plus point, especially makes cleaning the stairs so much simpler. Its manoeuvrability is great and its weight comfortable enough for me; that was a factor in buying a new machine. Having to empty it so many times the first time I cleaned the house with it was a bit of a negative, but this was down to it picking up so much more dirt than our previous cleaner. I've not had to empty it nearly so much in successive uses. The battery life is more than adequate for our fairly small 3-bedroom house - does it all plus battery life to spare. 14 August 2014
Fantastic cordless vac Having a corded dyson I was looking at getting a cordless vacuum and this dyson fits the bill. Wall bracket is brilliant as it can charge when not in use. I'm finding I'm using this product more than my corded vacuum for quickness and ease. Picks up more than I expected and enough charge to do what I need to do 12 August 2014
Just what we needed! Lightweight, easy to use and especially good for storage if space is limited. Battery lasts long enough for our floating two bedroom home. Suction is good even without the boost capability. 06 August 2014
Far better than expected I hate cleaning but this is so easy to use with great results that hoovering has become a pleasure. It's so light and can be pushed around with ease. I was embarrassed at how much this picked up the first time I used it despite having a dyson before. 29 July 2014
good It's a good little vacuum, and we chose it because we've got cat fur galore in our home. It comes with a special attachment to pick up stubborn fur off furniture, and it does work well. The battery works for about 20 minutes (we've had it 2 years now), and that's enough for me to scoot round the house and get the floors done. I empty the dust canister every second cleaning. It's easy to use, very intuitive and lightweight. I had a terrible time with it after Christmas, as it refused point blank to pick up pine needles from our tree. That was very frustrating - I think a proper hoover is called for in these sorts of circumstances. 14 July 2014
Great addition to your cleaning arsenal! A great addition, not a replacement for your regular vacuum. Good for quick jobs, cat etc and various jobs around the house. We use it quite alot for quick spruce up, crumbs and hard to reach places. Glad we got it and would recommend! 08 July 2014
amazing I have had dyson vaccum cleaners before but this one is the best yet. It is simply AMAZING. YOU WONT BE DISSAPOINTED. 08 July 2014
