Dyson Digital Slim DC59 Motorhead- 06.09.14

dyson0.jpg If there’s one cleaning tool i’ve recommended over and over again, it is the Dyson Cordless Vacuums. I’ve used these for everything - from tiny apartments to larger houses, cleaning up messes in the woodshop to keeping up with puppy shedding! While to some people, it’s annoying that the batteries don’t last that long (though on the new DC59 it can do 24 minutes full charge, and 6 minutes in MAX mode) - I secretly loved the timing, since it would limit the amount of time i’d be running around cleaning, then I could take a break and recharge it for a bit. I’m still using my original DC16 (from 2006!) in NOTlabs, and the DC35 Multifloor (unboxed in 2011) has been a regular fixture in my kitchen, but i think it’s about to be demoted by the new DC59 Motorhead that they were kind enough to send over!

I’ll be the first to admit I was skeptical when the box read “Sucks up as much dust as a conventional vacuum.” As much as I try to keep up with the dust and puppy shed, when Dyson was kind enough to send over the DC41 Animal upright, ball vacuum with the arrival of Bucky - I quickly learned HOW MUCH DUST it magically finds compared to anything else (including the Dyson handhelds!) There’s something disgustingly satisfying about watching that clear canister fill up with the guck around your house as you vacuum… usually my handheld canister is filled with dog hair and chunkier items, this time the DC59 canister was filled with dog hair and super fine powdery dust! Just powering it up, you can feel how much stronger the suction is compared to the previous models… and this is all before i actually tried the Motorhead attachment. Honestly, I usually bust out the DC41 Animal for the carpeted rooms, because the handhelds just don’t pull enough out… well I just tried it out and i’m amazed how much the motorhead managed to get out of the carpet! I know how absurd it sounds to be gushing over a vacuum - but I have been using these Dyson handhelds daily for years, and i really didn’t expect to be this impressed with the latest iteration. Anyhow, take a peek at the unboxing and details on the next page - and don’t worry there’s no picture of my dusty mess!


Into the unboxing… dyson2.jpg

All the parts… dyson3.jpg


The nearly chromed out top is rather mesmerizingly intense… dyson5.jpg

The filter is now accessible from the top! dyson6.jpg

And pulls right out in a little cylinder… dyson7.jpg

Here’s the Motorhead - apparently it pulls 75% harder than even the Animal model! They say “DC59 Motorhead contains a direct-drive motor in the brush bar, centralizing weight distribution of the brush bar driving stiff nylon bristles into the carpet to remove ground-in dirt. The direct-drive motor delivers direct power - 75% more power than DC59 Animal.” I’m impressed how hard it suctions and how much dust it pulls out of the carpet… dyson9.jpg

Here’s a peek at the bristles of the smaller motorized head! dyson10.jpg

I wasn’t kidding that these are my favorite - here’s my original DC16 (which has been demoted to NOTlabs garage/car vac), the DC35 (which i unboxed back in 2011 and have been using nearly daily since!) and the new DC59! dyson11.jpg

The biggest design difference is the filter - i’m curious to see how this works out over time, but it definitely seems easier to grab and clean (perhaps even encouraging me to clean it far more often?) dyson12.jpg

And while some of the Dyson models can interchange accessories - the motorized parts of the DC35 and DC59 can’t be shared. dyson14.jpg

Side by side testing the view of the DC35 vs DC59. I usually use them either in this setup, or with just that crevice tube attached. dyson13.jpg

Have a listen at the sound differences - I hadn’t realized how high the pitches get with each advancement, though that probably makes sense as they spin and suck faster and faster. I’m also noticing the DC59 warming up in my hand towards the top as I use it, I don’t think the others did this.

All in all - i’m smitten and amazed at this little Dyson DC59 Motorhead. And it is definitely worth the upgrade from my previous models. Looks like i’ll be using the proper vacuum less frequently due to the Motorhead attachment especially… dyson16.jpg
