Product Details

Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum - DC44ANIMAL

DC44 Animal has a detachable long-reach wand, which is balanced for floor to ceiling cleaning. The motorized floor tool has twice the power of the DC35 floor tool, to drive the bristles deeper into the carpet pile with more force. It attaches to the wand or directly to the machine for cleaning awkward spaces. The brush bar has carbon fiber filaments for removing fine dust from hard floors. DC44 Animal has a run time of 20 minutes or 8 minutes on Boost mode. Powered by the Dyson digital motor, DC44 Animal has a fade-free nickel manganese cobalt battery and Root Cyclone™ technology for constant, powerful suction.

Key Features:

  • Root Cyclone™ technology
  • Balanced for floor to ceiling cleaning
  • Motorized head with carbon fiber filaments
  • Increased run time

Features:

  • No loss of suction
    Some conventional vacuum cleaners use a bag that can clog and cause suction to drop. Instead of bags, Dyson vacuums use patented cyclone technology. Powerful centrifugal forces spin dust and dirt out of the air and into the bin with no loss of suction. DC44 has Root Cyclone™ technology and a fade-free nickel cobalt manganese battery for high constant suction.

  • Dyson digital motor
    Michael Faraday discovered electromagnetic induction, the principle behind the electric motor, in 1831. Yet, despite being technologically advanced at the time, electric motors have changed very little since. Bulky, old-fashioned components and lots of moving parts prone to failure.

    Dyson engineers spent a decade developing new types of highly efficient digital motors. The Dyson digital motor is smaller, lighter, cleaner and more power-efficient than conventional electric motors. Dyson digital motors use digital pulse technology, spinning at up to 104,000 times a minute (five times faster than a racing car engine).

  • Anti-static carbon fiber brushes
    Static build-up causes fine dust to stick to hard floors. The brush bar on a DC44 machine has filaments made from pure carbon fiber. They help discharge static electricity, allowing more fine dust to be removed from hard floors.

  • Balanced for floor to ceiling cleaning
    T he center of gravity is located towards the grip for easy handling up top, down below and in-between. The detachable wand is made from lightweight aluminium. It extends to 66cm to clean up high, down low and into awkward gaps.

  • Motorized head with carbon fiber filaments and increased power
    DC44 has a motorized floor tool with two types of bristles engineered for cleaning different floor surfaces. Ultra-fine anti-static carbon fiber filaments remove fine dust from hard floors. And stiff nylon bristles remove ground-in dirt from carpets. The DC44 floor tool has twice the power of the DC35 tool, to drive the bristles deeper into the carpet pile with more force.

  • Increased run time
    DC44 has a run time of 20 minutes of high constant suctionor 8 minutes on Boost mode. Other cordless vacuums may claim longer run time, but many lose suction power during use. DC44 has constant powerful suction from the moment you start to the moment you finish.

  • Dual power mode
    Dual power mode gives you two power options. 20 minutes of high, constant suction for longer tasks. Or 8 minutes on Boost mode for tougher cleans.

  • Docking Station
    Stores the machine and attachments when not in use. The battery can be charged while the machine is in the docking station, or separately from the machine.

  • Mini motorized tool with increased power for tough tasks
    DC44 Animal also comes with a mini motorized tool with increased power for tough tasks. It removes pet hair and dirt from upholstery and confined spaces.

We purchased this delightful product yesterday (4/3/11) and it is fantastic! I love it! I read all of the reviews before we went out and I can honestly say that the only negative review item that holds any water whatsoever is that you must hold the trigger down to run the machine. I can see that this would get annoying or painful if you have arthritis in your hands. Every single one of the other negative reviews are absolute rubbish in my opinion: The machine can very easily be leaned up against a wall when you need to stop working (to move an item for example). I've had no problem doing this. The roller is the absolutely easiest one to clean I have ever had on a vacuum. You simply unlock it and it easily slides out for cleaning. How could this be considered difficult?? This vacuum is versatile and light. The cord free design lets me move all over my house without having to unplug and move a cord. It's got great suction and I was amazed at the amount of crud it picked up off my already vacuumed rug! I would highly recommend this product to anyone who has either a smaller house or just wants to do daily touch ups of rooms or clean up quick messes. I would definitely want a larger vacuum if my house was substatially larger but this little guy is PERFECT for me and my family!

The power of this vacuum is wonderful - more so on carpet. It does not pick up thin pieces of paper from a hardwood floor. I find this product to be very annoying for the reasons below. I consider them to be major design flaws and wonder why they weren't discovered during testing. 1. It does not have an ON/OFF switch. You must hold down the red button while vacuuming, and if you relax your finger it stops. After a few minutes, my finger hurt. 2. The vacuum doesn't stand up by itself. It doesn't stand up even when leaning against something. If you need to put it aside while moving furniture, you can't, because it doesn't stand up. You have to go the room for the holder. 3. It is very difficult to get to the roller in order to dislodge something such as hair, string or a rubber band. You need to unscrew the roller cover. What pain. In short, it may have terrific suction, but it is not the most convenient thing to use. I would not have bought it. if I knew about the design flaws. I would not recommend it to anyone. It is also very expensive. Maybe if the changes are made, I may asked for an exchange.

dyson absolute v6

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

we have just used the v6 for the first time, it is very light and easy to use the suction is good and the tools easy to change. the only criticism's the battery time we hadn't finished upstairs before it ran out and it takes 3 and a half hours to charge admittedly we were doing a deep clean but still,only half done. also we seem to be emptying the dust container every 2 mins it just isn't big enough. but on the whole it is a good product if you can put up with these minor niggles

Timelife on v6 absolute

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

I bought a dyson V6 absolute 4 weeks ago & paid €397 for it & I was told there was a 20 - 26 minutes vacuum time with it, well I can honestly say the one I bought has between 10 - 15 mins vacuuming time. Would definitely never recommend this product.

Splendid!

By

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

I have used a Dyson for years DC7 for years; it never caused me any problems thanks to the splendid servicing by Dyson Service department. It has now been gracefully retired and I have replaced it with a V6 Absolute. This is an equally splendid machine; the DC7’s equal in sweeping up the dog’s hair, better at the cat’s hair and better at reaching the stuff under chairs and tables whence the stupid animals go to shed their coat. (OK, I should groom them more but I would not recommend that with the cat!). The best thing about the new machine is its lightness and manoeuvrability, particularly on stairs; its lightness makes walls and ceilings accessible too. The one disadvantage is (I guess) the six minute time limit on the ‘full suction’ setting necessary for animal hair removal. It doesn’t give me a problem; six minutes is stacks of time to ‘do’ the three rooms we use mostly plus the landing hall and stairs. If you live in a mansion peopled by dogs and cats you may find this a problem but then if you live in a mansion you can probably afford, and I would recommend, that you buy two!

Fantastic piece of kit

By

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

Having just done away with my old Dyson after many years, I decided I wanted a more convenient easy to handle vacuum cleaner, that was cordless. Family members recommended the cordless Dyson V6, so I went out and purchased one. Absolutely fantastic vacuum cleaner, lightweight and great for the stairs and the car. No loss of suction power considering it is so light weight and a lot smaller than the usual corded variety. I can't recommend the V6 enough, go and try for yourself!!

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

The Dyson V6 Absolute is excellent, especially for three story properties. This handheld, cordless device ensures a very easy but also powerful clean throughout the home. The range of attachments are great and helpful to reach those awkward places.

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

Have only used the machine twice as I only purchased my new dyson yesterday. Have been so pleased with the performance carpets never been so clean. Very easy to put together and use. My old dyson was much heavier now I can tackle the hall and stairs with no bother. I have charged my machine for the required time 3.5hrs and I'm getting cleaning time of about 10 min then I have to re-charge is this correct.

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

i have had this vacuum 6 or more month. Fabulous for daily dog hair Vacuum 2 bed bungalow hall bathroom kitchen on 1 charge. Need big dyson once every 10 days or so. Very happy except for bad dog smell and not sure how to scent this. Regular filter wash does not help. Must buy if you have pets or children or like me a little older and large vacuum is a faff

dyson v6 animal.

By

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

I,ve had my "animal" for just over 6months, I find that one room is all it will do on one charge up, our rooms are "normal" size for a bungalow and when it comes to emptying well, that's so difficult and as it needs emptying every room, it takes forever to clean. waste of money.

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

Fantastic upgrade, didn't realise how much pet hair my old Dyson couldn't pick up. Wireless feature is a huge help on the stairs. Only thing i would improve is battery life.
