I have owned a Dyson for almost 6 years years now. I had always wanted one and my lovely husband bought my first Dyson Animal for my first Mother's Day. It was love at first suck! I loved the power, the suction, the hose's ability to get up high into the ceilings for cleaning and I loved the canister action. You can see it working!
It wasn't long after I received the Animal that I knew I needed a cordless Dyson so we went with the DC35. It was everything that I wanted in a small canister vacuum. It had the best suction I had ever experienced in a handheld vacuum and it was very convenient. I love all of the attachments and I especially love that it lasts quite awhile on one charge. That was......until I met my DC59!
Since I have owned a Dyson vacuum before, my expectations were pretty high when it came to trying out the new DC59. I couldn't wait to tear it from it's package so I could get it charging! I haven't owned a Dyson with the slim attachment so that, in and of itself, made this vacuum a marvel.
While my new DC59 was on the charger, I got busy. I have a small hallway that links our mudroom/entry way and the living room. It is approximately 6x3 and it gets the most traffic by our family and our dog. I took my Dyson upright and vacuumed that hallway three times. The third time, I didn't get much up from the carpet. I waited about an hour and then my DC59 was ready. To say I was blown away by how much was being vacuumed up would be an understatement. A total understatement! Lets just show you!
This piece of printer paper is loaded with dog hair and dust/dirt that my upright left behind. My upright is only 5 years old so I was very surprised that it didn't have the power that my new Digital Slim DC59 has. I read about my new treasure and was surprised to learn that it not only has 3 times the suction of any other cordless vacuum in use but the new V6 motor = 50% more power than V2 (my old cordless) and it performs like an upright!! To be honest, I don't even use my big upright now that I have the DC59! Its light, weighing in at a mere 4.65 pounds and it lasts over 26 minutes on ONE CHARGE! It does take 3.5 hours to charge this vacuum fully but I just put it on the charger when I am done and then I don't have to think about it until I need to use it again.
One thing I learned about my DC59 that blew my mind was that it has a V6 engine that spins at 110,000rpm (5 times faster than a Formula One racecar engine). Isn't that a WHOA fact?! This definitely is evident in the above picture! I have used this vacuum over and over again, in fact I have probably used it at least 20 times since I received it and I am still shocked by its cleaning power. It was so evident that I love the DC59 so much that my Mom went out and bought one right away! That speaks volumes for this powerful machine!
The DC59 retails for $499.99 at Best Buy and it is, in my mind, a solid investment. The filters are easy to clean which makes it allergen friendly and the amount of power in this small, compact vacuum. I will continue to tell everyone I know about this amazing Dyson vacuum!
What would be the first thing you clean up with your new DC59?
