Dyson DC59 Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

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. 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 4.5 5 29 29
great product We hesitated buying the dc59 because of the price, butare glad we did. So easy to use, wish we had bought one earlier. Will never go back to one with a lead. 27 September 2014
great little machine very easy to use, powerful great power, puts my old vacuum to shame :) 20 September 2014
Haven't used my DC25 since buying this Love it. We have a labrador so lots of dog hairs. This cleans them up with no problems. Carpet, tiles, wood floors, all are cleaned up really quickly. It makes doing the stairs really easy unlike my DC25. When I first used it I put it on turbo power and the battery only lasted long enough to do the one room. Then I had to wait 3.5hrs until it charged again. But it really did clean it better than before. Now I just use it on normal power and I can go around the ground floor in no-time before the battery runs out. I just empty it after use and charge it until fully charged, ready to use for next time. The person who sold us it in JL said we would end up using it in addition to your normal Dyson but I don't, I haven't used my upright Dyson since buying this. Fantastic product. 17 September 2014
Fantastic Really good for a quick 'whizz around' after my baby's meal times and before visitors 16 September 2014
Life Changing Stop reading all these reviews and just buy one. It will change your life. Amazing. 12 September 2014
You won't be dissappointed! My Neighbour told me it was the best electrical item he had ever bought, and he's in his 70's! He wasn't wrong, it is so much less hassle than a normal cleaner! The charge does last long enough, unless you own a mansion, and you want to do the whole thing in one go. 09 September 2014
Changed my life. Dyson Wand I researched this product carefully before purchasing. Read hundreds of reviews so I knew what to expect. Yes the battery life is short epically if it is on max power BUT BUT. If you manage your timings between using the wand and chagrined the battery this is fine. I can go through the house very quickly and it is clean and easy. I do also have an animal Dyson but it is an effort to get it out and makes cleaning much more of a physical chore and is not as easy to get in to awkward angles It was my husband who suggested it first having seen it advertised on TV but I said it could not possible do as good a job as my original Animal Dyson power would not be as good. Container holding not big enough to hold all the dust etc I WAS WRONG It is fantastic especially on the stairs all three floors. Dusting attachment super for doing sofas, shutters,etc. Highly recommend this product. Easy to store easy to empty the dust container. It is expensive but it has changed my cleaning routine. My son used it to clean out his bedroom before going back to Uni. An absolute first!!! 09 September 2014
Total Disappointment This product cleaned 2 rooms on boost power and then cut out. Another 3.5 hours to wait before being able to use again. Returned the product as no use whatsoever to clean a whole house at one go. 09 September 2014
