Product Details

Dyson DC59 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum - DC59AN

The DC59 Animal cordless vacuum cleaner is powered by the Dyson digital motor V6. This 350W motor, 2 Tier Radial™ cyclones and a re-engineered nickel manganese cobalt battery combine to provide powerful suction. Together these technologies enable the Dyson DC59 Animal to suck up as much dust as a corded vacuum.*

Dyson DC59Animal floor to ceiling

Features:

  • Balanced for easy cleaning - from floor to ceiling
    DC59 weighs less than 5 pounds and is easy to lift – its center of gravity is located towards the grip, for easy cleaning up top, down below and in-between.
  • Engineered for balanced weight distribution
    In other cordless vacuums, heavy parts such as the motor, dust separator and filtration system are located close to the floor – away from the handle. This makes it awkward to lift the vacuum from one surface to another – particularly surfaces at different heights. Using Archimedes' principle of the Lever, Dyson engineers have shifted the center of gravity. The weight is distributed differently. The motor and batteries are located directly above and below the hand, making the cleaning end lighter.
  • The most powerful cordless vacuum
    DC59 has more suction power than any other cordless vacuum. The combination of the Dyson digital motor V6, 2 Tier Radial™ cyclones and a re-engineered nickel manganese cobalt battery makes this possible. Dyson DC59Animal close up
  • Digital motor technology
    Other cordless vacuum manufacturers compromise on either weight or suction. Dyson cordless vacuums are powered by the Dyson digital motor. It's small size means that the machines it powers can also be small, light and powerful. The Dyson digital motor V6 inside DC59 is 50% more powerful than its predecessor, V2.
  • Dyson digital motor V6
    DC59 is powered by the Dyson digital motor V6. The digital motor spins at up to 110,000 times a minute, up to 3 times faster than conventional motors contributing towards the machines powerful suction.
  • 2 Tier Radial™ cyclones
    15 cyclones, arranged across two tiers, work in parallel to increase airflow and capture fine dust.
  • Improved pick up across every floor type
    A re-engineered floor tool helps DC59 to suck up as much dust as a corded vacuum.** Stiff nylon bristles dislodge ground-in dirt from carpets, and soft carbon fiber filaments gently remove fine dust from hard floors. DC59's floor tool has been 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, increasing pick-up. The new configuration of carbon fiber filaments and nylon bristle strips removes dust and dirt across carpet and hard floors.
  • Anti-static carbon fiber filaments
    Many cordless vacuums don't have brush bars, and those that do only contain nylon bristles. While these loosen dirt from carpets, they're not as effective on hard floors where fine dust can be left behind. The brush bars of Dyson cordless vacuums are different. They have a row of anti-static carbon fiber filaments, as well as nylon bristles. The filaments prevent the build-up of the static charge that holds the dust to the floor, allowing it to be sucked up into the vacuum.
  • 50% More Power in Boost ModeDyson DCAnimal power boost
    The DC59 has 50% more power in boost mode than DC35 and DC44. 6 minutes of increased suction power for more difficult tasks.
  • Lightweight and ergonomic
    Fits naturally into the shape of the hand. Center of gravity located towards the grip for easy handling.
  • Mini motorized tool for tough tasks
    Removes hair and dirt from upholstery and confined spaces.
  • Re-engineered nickel manganese cobalt battery
    Transmits 1.5 times more power than DC35 and DC44. Customized to provide fade-free power. And the DC59 turns on when you
    need it, off when you don't. Many other cordless vacuum cleaners remain switched on from the moment cleaning starts. Battery power is wasted between cleaning tasks. Dyson Digital Slim™ vacuum cleaners have a run-time enhancing trigger. Trigger grip releases instantly, meaning battery power is only used for cleaning. It allows for a 26 minute cleaning session.
  • Cleans under low furniture
    Low profile cleaner head. Stays flat to the floor when the machine is fully reclined.
Dyson DC59Animal under furniture
  • Stair cleaning
    Motorized head attaches directly to the machine for cleaning stairs.
  • Hygenic bin emptying
    New hygienic one-touch bin empty. Just push the button to release the dirt. Accessible from either side.
  • Captures dirt and dust with no loss of suctionDyson DCAnimal Hygienic bin emptying
    Dyson has been continually refining vacuum cyclone technology since inventing it more than 20 years ago. The cyclones spin the air and create strong centrifugal force to fling dust and dirt out of the air and into the bin. No bag. No loss of suction.
  • No extra costs
    Other vacuums rely on bags and filters to capture dust and dirt. Dyson machines have Root Cyclone™ technology. Centrifugal forces up to 100,000 times gravity fling dust and dirt straight into the bin. And that includes the fine dust that clogs the filters in ordinary bagless vacuums. Unlike other vacuum cleaners, Dyson machines don't lose suction - and don't need costly replacement bags and filters.
  • Built to last
    Tough and durable. All Dyson vacuums are made from ABS and polycarbonate – the same material used in riot shields and crash helmets. Every single component is relentlessly tested to survive real life.
  • Traps allergens, expels cleaner air
    Dyson handheld and cordless vacuums have constant powerful suction, high dust removal, the ability to capture allergens, expel cleaner air and do not have dusty bags to empty.
  • Dyson DC59Animal extra tools
  • Docking station
  • Stores the machine for charging. Holds two additional attachments.
  • Extra tools
    All Dyson vacuums come with Dyson-engineered tools for cleaning hard to reach places around the home.

Admittedly have acquired a bias for the Dysons in general. They generally are a better built or at least better "feeling" vacuum than most. The use of quality materials (plastic & aluminum)give me more confidence that they'll hold up and generally I've found that to be true relative to other manufacturer offerings. But just as important is that they just preform better...especially over the long-haul. Having two other cord models, I was extremely impressed with the power/performance of the cordless DC59. I expected the ease and utility of a lighter cordless...why I purchased...but was not prepared to for just how well it performed. In most cases, it's difficult to notice a drop-off over the cord models. So yes...smitten a bit and very pleased. That said...not perfect. I've found when picking up longer hair (females and cats) the storage canister tends to not only fill-up quickly, but can easily clog where the attachment inlet connects with the motor unit/canister. The opening is rather narrow and the hair can accumulate/clog the canister before it actually fills it. And it's difficult to clean out...need to dig a bit with something long and narrow as the clearance is tight. This is definitely an area for a design improvement in my opinion. That said, I'm still very pleased with this cordless Dyson and would purchase again. Something I've always appreciated about James Dyson is his innovation and willingness to pursue product development which I'm sure he will with this. For me, it's worth the bit of an upcharge to make a not-so-pleasant task of cleaning "almost" bearable.

The vacuum cleaner is super light weight and changing attachments is simple thus it is very easy to both use to clean stairs and to carry up and down stairs. The use between charges, however, is extremely limited and then the unit takes too long to fully charge. The capacity of the canister is minimal and needs to be emptied too frequently. I have had to basically create a rotation around my house and cannot use this to clean the whole house at once. Also, I spilled French cous cous (the tiny ones) on the kitchen floor. I used this device to quickly clean up the spill, however, all of the cous cous spilled back out of the vacuum once it was off. It is great for basic cleaning of hard floors but not for cleaning up messes. I have a long-hair cat who sheds like crazy and this device lifts those tufts of hair right up. Bottom line...I would recommend this unit but with caveats.

Comments about Dyson DC59 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

We have concrete and tile floors in our small house with 4 cats and a dog. I needed something to get to hard to reach places and this works well for that. It picks up great and is very light. The only downside was that I wasn't able to finish before it needed to be recharged. Disappointing when the house is only 1300 square feet. It works well to clean your car.

    Comments about Dyson DC59 Animal Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

    We own a Dyson DC07 Animal vacuum and it has serviced us well. The unit is heavy though and as family members get older it becomes more of a challenge to carry up and down stairs and have to drag it around behind you when you use the separate hand tools.

    We bought the DC59 animal as it was extremely portable. We love how it cleans our floors. Note we only have hardwood in our house however it picks up the fine dust well. We use it almost daily and it's holding up well. The unit is light and easy to carry around and with no hose do not have the problem of our DC07 of the hose breaking all the time and having to replace it.

    Only complaints I really have that 4 star it are we already replaced the unit once as two days into it the canister went smoky and couldn't see what was in it anymore. I would recommend making sure you do not use it for picking up things that are extremely gritty as they will spin in the canister and scratch it. If you are concerned with this issue.

    Second the battery life is just OK. Can't expect it to last forever for such a small unit, but having to recharge for 3 hours to get 16-20 minutes of battery life seems like a lot of time for so little use. You will learn over time how to be efficient with it when using to clean the whole house. We never use the turbo mode as it drains the battery fast. Don't notice any less cleaning capabilities.

            This vacuum lives up to the positive reviews. The two main cons in reviews (that the bin fills quickly and that the trigger is cumbersome to use) turned out to be true ONLY on the first day of use. Yes, on day one, the bin filled up seven times and had to be dumped. But on day two--and ever since--it has only filled up once per use. My old vacuum,it turns out, just wasn't getting all that hidden dirt/dust. And on day one, the trigger made my hand very tired, but now I'm completely used to it. It's so easy to use that my six year-old daughter can use this vacuum comfortably. The suction is so much better than my previous cordless vacuum that, unbeknownst to me, I was living in filth. Not anymore!
