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


  • 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 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.

    DC44 Cordless

    By anyoldiron

    from Undisclosed

    I shopped around and purchased the cordless DC44 at a good price. I also purchased and extra battery at the same time which allows me to extend cleaning time from 20 minutes to 40 minutes. It is very simple to change the battery.This vacuum is great on stairs and under tables. It works well as a follow-up vacuum and for areas with no electricity.A separate motor on the roller brush makes vacuuming on the low setting good enough even on carpeted areas. There is quality in this product too. I didn't find anything that will break over time on this model.

    I have wood floors and area rugs throughout most of my house. This little guy is easy to just grab and go and does a fabulous job! The only thing I would say that's negative is that it doesn't do a great job on regular wall to wall carpet but on the area rugs and wood it's amazing.

    Best vacuum ever

    By Meem

    from Undisclosed

    Positively the best vacuum ever. Being light weight and cordless (awesome) makes it so much easier to vacuum our 3-story home. Would not give this up!

    dc44 is ideal for me because I hate pulling a cord all over the place from room to room. The suction is great and because it's battery operated I don't have to worry about running out of power before I'm finished. I can move from carpet to tile or hardwood with ease. I'm really happy with my dc44. It's what I looked for in a cordless. Compact and light easy to use and store away.

    DC44 Animal

    By Runner

    from Undisclosed

    Only owned the machine a couple of months, therefore can not speak to reliability, but so far we are very pleased with this machine. We have owned two other similar machines and the Dyson has so much more suction power than these did. I also am impressed that the sweeper does not scatter dust and crumbs and I assume this is due to the powerful suction. we like the ease with which we can change tools. My only complaint is having to hold the trigger down while using, but I am guessing this is to prolong battery life.

    Great vacuum for small spaces. Manuverability is awesome for use in small house. It also allows us to store in very limited space. The cleaning capability is excellent. Easy to empty and clean.

    DC 44 animal- great vac just as I hoped

    By TCallahan

    from Undisclosed

    what's not to love....Super lightweight, charges up quickly, doesnt lose suction, easy to dump out the dirt. If I see a clump of cat fur I can quickly pull out the dyson and I'm done in seconds. I no longer have to drag out the heavy clunky old vac. I used it to clean up paint chips during a recnt house project. It hooks on the wall and easily stores in the closet. worth the price.
