This is not a paid review. It is merely a review of this product that I have recently bought.
For all those people, like myself, that are used to traditional upright vacuums or those pull along things that are designed for the stairs, and who think the Dyson DC59 Animal, looks like a skinny motorised futuristic broom or brush, you could be forgiven for thinking that it couldn’t possibly be very powerful or at least not as powerful as a traditional vacuum. Believe me when I tell you, this cordless vacuum certainly packs a big punch.
I got this because our previous vacuum kept cutting out. It started having problems virtually to the day the warranty ran out. I was mooching around in our local electrical store and saw this Dyson, along with other similar looking Dysons. The sales advisor gave me a quick demo of it. He seemed to love it, but there again he is a sales advisor so I take that with a pinch of salt.
I went home and done a lot of comparison checks between the different models of Dysons. Due to the fact we have a couple of cats and the carpets always end up covered in their fur, we had to go for an animal.
I decided I liked the DC59, as it had the best battery life and power, and also it comes with a motorised head for the cat fur, as well as the normal attachments for corners, curtains and cushions etc. It also came with a smaller head which can be used in your car as well.
I showed D, my partner the hoover and took her to the electrical store to see it. She thought it was nice but was very hesitant about the price which at 349.99 ump, I cannot disagree with her on. It is expensive, but from my experience, Dysons are a brilliant machine, and also I had saved some cash up, so could afford it at the moment. We ended up getting it.
As soon as we got it home, D had it out of the box and was giving it a trial run before the battery ran out. I have never seen her so excited about a vacuum before. She was hoovering the house like a woman possessed, and was gutted that the initial charge ran out so she had to stop.
As we are decorating at the moment, there has been loads to test the DC59 on, and let me tell you, it has not failed once to pick something up. I cannot remember when our carpets looked and felt so good since they were put down years ago. It shows our previous vacuum was not doing a very good job.
Both d and myself, have found the the weigh distribution is really good on this. Its nicely balanced so you don’t end up with aching wrists.It goes from carpet to laminate no problem. It literally glides over the laminate, and as it goes really flat, we can get under our sofa as well.
Emptying is a doddle. Simply slide down the red slider on the main housing and the base opens up for you to tip everything in the bin.
The DC59 has been such a hit in our house that even our 13 year old daughter wants to hoover her room now, which has never been known before.
Although its an expensive item, to me it is well worth it.
Dyson say it sucks up as much dust as a corded vacuum. So far, we cannot disagree. We were shocked at what it pulled out of our carpets.
At about 26 minutes per charge, battery life is one thing that at first impressions you will think, thats not very long, but after the first two or three vacuums of your house, you will fly around really fast with this. There is a wall mounted charging cradle that you can hang the DC59 in to keep charged and also hold your accessories.
