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.

This is truly the best Dyson vacuum ever made. It's light, every maneuverable, has powerful suction, and it's very easy to use. In comparison to the DC25 Ball, the DC41 is far better engineered, and is better than its predecessor in every way imaginable. For starters, the DC41 has a much larger clear bin, and longer cord than the DC25 (the two most common grievances about that machine. With a cord that's 10 feet longer, and with nearly double the debris capacity, you will reach farther distances with less emptying. The little details on the DC41 should give everyone that uses it that the engineers put a lot of thought into designing the DC41 to make it more of a be-all, end-all flagship vacuum cleaner rather than just another niche vacuum with a specialty gimmick. The "Active base plate" ensures constant close contact with the floor surface for stronger pick-up. The brush roll has two distinct rows of bristles: one row of short bristles and one row of tall bristles -- this combination provides optimum agitation on both short and high pile carpeting. I was amazed at how well this machine deep cleaned considering it's rather small diameter brush roll. Cat hair, fluff, sand, and dust were pulled from my carpet every time I vacuumed. The DC41 Animal definitely cleaned my carpets better than my DC25, that's for sure! The "Radial Root Cyclone" system focuses air flow through the center of the cyclone assembly which promotes better cyclonic filtration since each of the 12 cyclones on the top of the bin receive equal air flow. Another design feature that I found rather thoughtful was the use of rounded airways to promote smoother and more efficient airflow. I recall seeing the DC07 with this same feature, but for one reason or another, Dyson lost focus on this feature on more recent models. I'm glad they brought it back on the DC41. Anyone with a keen eye will notice that the perforated shroud inside the clear bin has been replaced by a finer screen filter. This is to greatly reduce the likelihood of fine dust buildup, as well as promote greater airflow intake. The redesigned ball makes for a rather clean looking appearance since all of the ducting that would normally wrap around the ball have now been integrated inside of it. Since the wrap around ducting are no longer present, the DC41 has a much improved turning radius in comparison to its DC25 predecessor. Other improvements I've noticed include the larger dusting brush with softer bristles, the handle that is now fixed to the machine (makes for better upright rigidity), and I really like how the HEPA exhaust filter securely screws onto the ball rather than snapping into place -- having owned the DC25, I never liked how the exhaust filter felt loose and unsecured, even when snapped into place. Exhaust air would normally leak through the rubber gasket of the HEPA filter, and generate a lot of squealing and whistling. I will never have that problem with the DC41 thanks to its more proper design. Overall, this is a fantastic vacuum cleaner. Dyson definitely went all out in designing this machine. As having owned every generating of "The Ball" (DC15, DC25, and now DC41), I can say the DC41 is the best by far -- I loved my DC15, was disappointed by the DC25, but the DC41 is a quantum leap ahead of every Dyson in the lineup.

The Good: The vacuum has excellent suction. I have two dogs and two long haired cats and it is able to pull the hair easily from the carpet. I like the smaller size when compared to my Dyson DC7. I like that the head of the vacuum is clear so I'm able to quickly identify if it needs to be cleaned. I also like how easy it is to access the brush in the suction head of the vacuum compared to my DC7. The vacuum is easy to maneuver. The Bad or what needs to be improved: I think Dyson over engineered the head of the vacuum for maximum suction. I have 3 kids under the age of 7 and they will spill popped popcorn and popcorn kernels in to the carpet. I will manually pick up the large popped popcorn and use the vacuum for the kernels and broken off bits. The vacuum does not pick up these kernels easily. I make multiple passes from different angles and it will still leave kernels. My DC7 even at 5 years old could pick up the kernels better than the DC41. If an item larger than dust is sitting on the surface of the carpet, the vacuum tends to just push it around instead of sucking the item up. I like the idea of the ball when vacuuming. I dislike the rear travel wheels when trying to move the vacuum prior to or after vacuuming. The Vacuum will "break down" in to the vacuum position where it's resting on the ball. I want to be able to move the vacuum using the rear two wheels like I was able on my DC7. It's frustrating when I push the vacuum forward and the rear two wheels will not stay engaged. It needs a lock or something to keep it in the travel position. Overall the vacuum has been working well sucking up pet hair and dust/dirt out of my carpet - much better than my DC7. The vacuum is a fail at picking up anything large especially if it's sitting on the surface of the carpet. I'd like to see a travel lock or something so I can move the vacuum on the rear two wheels instead of pushing it around in the ball position.

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

To date we are more than pleased with the suction capacity and the versatility. We have had a Dyson canister unit for several years and are finding on max suction the new V8 Animal picks up material left by the canister unit. We were also shocked at the amount it picked up when we vacuumed a mattress cover and mattress. Our only negative is the short battery life when set on max with a rotary tool. But as retirees we appreciate the time to rest while the battery recharges.

Very Convenient

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

Purchased the V8 Animal a couple of weeks ago. The vacuum works very well. The battery life is a little short and I would not recommend it for a whole house vacuum, but for a quick cleanup vacuum it works well. It's missing a standard hard floor brush head and one is not available so that is a negative. I was also hoping to use the new dog brush attachment, which I assumed would work with the V8 Animal since it is called an Animal after all.

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

I am really impressed with the way this product cleans. We have a dog and his hair is everywhere. Normally the hardest areas to clean were the rugs but with the V8 it was a cinch. I really love using it. The only feature that i would recommend for improvement is the battery life. I wish it could last a little while longer than it does.

Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

This is hands down the best vacuum I have ever used. You wouldn't think such a small machine would have so much power. I use my vacuum on my entire house. Lots of battery life remaining after the job is done. I have two long hair cats at home that love to shed. And this vacuum is up to the test everyday. From picking up large balls of fur to kitty litter and cibble on the floor. This is a must have to keep your house looking it's best
