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.

    Yes, you have to hold the trigger down. However, the power seems to last forever because of this. It doesn't run 20 minutes from the time you turn it on. It runs 20 full minutes of you holding the trigger. I could not believe how long this lasted. Now I find any excuse I can to vacuum. I also found that it never kicks debris back at you. With having two kitties and litter every where at all times, I'm used to being pelleted when I vacuum. Not anymore!!! In addition to that, I have a bad back. Previously I had a small cordless vacuum that broke down into a Dirt Devil type handheld so I could hold it over my head or do the stairs. It didn't have the power I needed and it was still awkward. I gave up on the stairs. At least until we got the DC44. I vacuumed two flights of stairs with no problems at all. My back is fine and I'm ready for more. The suction doesn't feel uber powerful on your hand like a Shop Vac tends to but it did major damage on the debris on the floor I can't even see. We have stored our Shop Vac for wet vacuuming only as the DC44 has covered the dry. When the battery is running low, there is a light that flashes when you have one minute left. It doesn't dwindle and die a dramatic theatrical death. It just stops. I haven't found the need to have a second battery as a back up but am open to it. I think I would only need a second battery for the hard core seasonal cleanings. Family reviews of Dyson have always been high and recommended. I knew I would like it, I just had no idea how much I would love it!! What a great product! Already recommending it to friends and figuring out which family member needs it for Christmas. The only thing we are hunting for now is a way to store the additional tools we purchased for pet grooming and the like. It would be great if there was something available to snap them into like the two that came with the DC44. Perhaps there is, we just haven't found it yet. You will not regret this purchase.

    The Dyson DC44 is the most powerful vacuum cleaner I have ever used. My hardwood floors have never looked better...it literaly picks up every speck of dust and the sleek design makes it easy to get to every spot and it's quick to finish an entire room. The absolute best for stairs and furniture. However... I would return it if I could because of its fatal flaw -- there is no on switch. You cannot finish a couch without switching hands because it's extremely uncomfortable to hold the button down the entire time. With such an innovative product with extreme suction it doesn't make sense that it would not include an on/off switch. Trust me... if I'm vacuuming... I want it on....especially for the amount of money I paid for this! I hope Dyson provides a 100% discount to everyone who purchased the DC44 when the new version with an on/off switch comes out.

    This is my 2nd Dyson product, and while I LOVE the 1st, this one is amazing. I just moved into a house with hardwood floors and stairs, life would be much harder without the DC44 Animal.

    Fabulous!

    There's nothing I cannot do with this vacuum, even though my thumb gets somewhat numb. But I overcome that by looking at the results of my efforts.

    Great little vacuum

    By wendysuept

    from Undisclosed

    I just love my DC44 Animal Cordless vac. It has great suction power. I like that you can see the dirt/hair in the little bin. I love the swivel/turning capabilities of the vacuum head as it enable getting in tight spaces. Perfect little vacumm!!!

    The big little vacuum

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    As I noted to all my friends and family on Facebook my Dyson was an early Christmas present. I had vacuumed earlier with my large upright and went over the same area with the Dyson. I was so shocked to see what my retired vacuume cleaner left behind. I am still amazed how well this little lightweight machine can do. As they say I am one happy camper.

    DC ANIMAL

    By MissyC

    from Undisclosed

    The product is wonderful for portability. It needs more power to pick up heavier items. I had to call to get help with christmas tree needles getting stuck in it. It works well on pet hair.

    Dyson 44

    By GrandmaNumber1

    from Undisclosed

    The only thing I do not like about this Dyson 44 is the fact that I have to hold the button to run the machine. My fingers get tired. I would rather have it run continuously. Then it would be perfect. Is there a way I can make it run continuously?

    Awesome Animal

    By BKELDC44

    from Undisclosed

    The DC44 surpassed our expectations with amazing performance. It works far better than you would expect for such a compact machine. I am officially a customer for life if they keep building them this good.

    By msspatz

    Love love love. I did so many searchs on different vacuums like this an this one came out on top. I got this for christmas and my cat threw up under the tree I didn't know it until I took it down and it was pretty dry crusty stuck to the carpet and I just thought about just getting a bucket of water with a scrub brush but instead I thought I would put my dyson to the test I pushed the max button and with in minutes all of it was vacuumed up and nothing was let it got it all. Love this vacuum!!!

    A small-apartment godsend

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    We have about a 750-800 sq ft apartment with very little storage for anything. As we were looking at vacuums we quickly realized that we had no place to even store one! We accidentally happened upon a DC44 and mounted it in one of our closet walls. The ability to do that alone makes this product worth the price. In addition to it's easy to store it has entirely replaced sweeping for me and I can get into nooks and crannies that I never could before (yeah, that first vacuum was a scary wake-up call). I hate to say it, but because it's so easy to maneuver, it's cordless, and you can get into all these weird angles I vacuum *MORE* because it's fun. Yeah, I just said that: the DC44 is *fun* to vacuum with. But really, these cordless vacuums really do take a lot of the hassle out of vacuuming. All the joy aside there are some practical limitations to this product. If I was in a 1500+ sq ft house I'd probably find this vacuum to be little under powered. Even in my small apartment I have run out of battery on those long, intense weekend cleanings. I'm also spoiled that I have hardwood floors which makes me a little bias cause it works so well on them. Although it does great on our high pile carpet it struggles on our bathroom rugs (med-pile but very thick). Overall this was the perfect project for the place we are in our life. If/when we expand our vacuum will probably have to as well.
