I have been a Dyson lover since the well-engineered vacuums first hit American shores back in the '90s. As a matter of fact, Bob and I have been coparenting Dyson vacuum cleaners since before we were married. You could say we were vacuuming in sin, but that might be a little overdramatic.
Here are our love children, the Dyson Animal and the Dyson Blueprint:
You can argue against evolution but it's pretty clear that smaller, sleeker, more maneuverable is the way things are going in the Dyson family. Witness, if you will, the newest member of the Dyson clan. Introducing the CORDLESS Dyson DC59 Animal Vacuum:
This technological marvel is remarkably slim and lightweight. It weighs less than five pounds, less than either of my kiddos weighed at birth, and they were pretty small. The long arm can be removed to use the tools in hand vac fashion but this vacuum really sucks– it offers 3x more suction than other hand vacs, due to its newfangled V6 motor. In fact, it performs like its bulky upright brethren. It's pretty impressive. We have two dogs and five cats, people. I'm happy to report that the re-engineered brush bar, optimized for hard floor and carpet, works wonders on all of our dust bunnies.
Better still, dudes looooove the very powerful motor. Here's my handsome hubby looking perturbed as I catch him testing the DC59's duel tier radial cyclone technology out.
I almost forgot my most favorite thing– unlike most cordless vacuums, the Dyson DC59 has some staying power. It will last 26 minutes on one charge, which means I can get through most of our house without dealing with cords and outlets. Woo-hoo! And, like all Dysons, there are no pesky (and expensive!) filters to deal with. One touch dirt dumping. Joy!
