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.
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.
DYSON DC59 FEATURES AT A GLANCE
- 3 times the suction of any other cordless vacuum in use with 350 Watts and Boost mode
- Wider (approx. 10” vs. 8” on the DC44) and improved maneuverability due to smaller ball at the back
- 26 minute clean time and 3.5 hour charging time (vs. 5 hour in the DC44) with re-engineered nickel manganese cobalt battery
- New V6 motor = 50% more power than V2; performs like an upright. V6 motor that spins at 110,000 rpm (5 times faster than a Formula One race car engine)
- 3 times smaller than a conventional vacuum motor
- 4-pole magnet that delivers 50% more power than its predecessor, V2
- 1.5 times more power than its predecessor (same run time, however – the extra capacity is used to power the V6 motor)
- 2 Tier Radial Cyclone technology – 15 cyclones, arranged across 2 tiers, brought to cordless for the first time

- Re-engineered brush bar for hard floor and carpet cleaning and self-tightening mechanism keeps the brush bar stable
- New configuration of carbon fiber filaments and nylon bristle tips to remove fine dust and dirt across all floor types

- Extended neck for greater ease of use
- Hygienic one-touch bin emptying, now on both sides (for lefties and righties). One push empties bin, 2nd push detaches bin completely for washing, etc.
