Dyson DC59 Available at Best Buy
The Dyson DC59 Animal is a high performance cordless vacuum with a newly designed digital motor. It is small, compact, and lightweight. It comes equipped with attachments that make it a versatile and powerful cordless vacuum. The DC59 can be used as a handheld or as a regular standard vacuum for day-to-day household cleaning. As a cordless, its technology allows it to compete with any corded vacuum.
The Dyson DC59 is known for its powerful suction. Its V6 motor is small and compact, but designed to transmit 1.5 times more power than other DC cordless models. Its digital 2-tier radial type cyclone style motor, is powered by 350 watts of energy, making it nearly 3 times faster than a conventional vacuum motor. The 2-tier design also allows it to spin up to 110,000 times a minute. This particular design creates both extremely powerful suction, and an increase in airflow, allowing it to capture fine dirt and dust other cordless vacuums miss.
It comes with re-engineered nickel manganese, cobalt battery that promotes longer battery life and allows for approximately 20 minutes of use before it needs recharging.The small lightweight design makes it a versatile, easy-to-use model. The DC59 weighs less than 5 pounds. Its ergonomic handle design fits naturally into the shape of the hand, and puts the center of gravity towards the grip making it easy to handle than other cordless models. The grip also contains a power trigger that allows the vacuum to be turned off and on instantly as needed, allowing longer battery use.The DC59 is designed for floor to ceiling use and comes with a number of attachments. The main attachment is the motorized low profile cleaning head, which was redesigned to be lighter and improve suction. It includes a unique dust capture channel that prevents dirt and dust from escaping back to the floor surface, and a self-tightening component that keeps the brush stable, increasing performance.
The motorized head stays flat to the floor any time the vacuum is reclined, making it easy to clean under low furniture and on stairs. It also comes with a standard non-motorized head, a crevice tool, and bristle brush extension, for smaller, more delicate areas. Carbon fiber filaments and nylon bristle strips in the vacuum heads, and extra attachments allow for cleaning everything from carpets and hardwood floors, to upholstery, walls, baseboards and other difficult hard-to reach corners and confined areas.
When cleaning is complete, the DC59 has a one-touch, push button hygienic system, which allows the bin to open instantly and empty the dirt for easy disposal. It stores easily in its docking station that conveniently charges the vacuum when not in use.
