The DC44 Animal is Dyson's new handheld and stick combination vacuum. Physically it looks almost identical to the Dyson DC35 other than color scheme, but it does have a few significant differences which increase its performance and versatility and justify its higher price. New features include an increased run time, more powerful floor cleaning and a mini motorized tool.
Increased run time of 20 minutes allows you get all your cleaning done without running out of power.
Suction power does not fade as the battery get low.
Battery fully recharges in 5 hours.
Digital motor and Root Cyclone technology delivers powerful suction. The DC44 will actually pick up dirt and debris from the floor and even remove pet hair from upholstery.
Includes a mini motorized tool for use with the handheld vacuum. Great for removing pet hair or dirt from upholstery, stairs and confined spaces.
Since most of the vacuum's weight is in the handheld section, it is very easy to maneuver the DC44 for cleaning ceiling corners, ceiling molding or tall curtains.
Floor tool, mini tool and accessory tools easily snap on the wand or the handheld vacuum.
Charging dock is wall mountable to neatly hang the DC44 safely out of the way.
The vacuum can be charged 3 different ways: using the charging dock, plug the vacuum in or remove the battery from the vacuum and plug the battery in.
Bagless design and washable lifetime filter - no need to purchase replacement parts.
Does not include a HEPA exhaust filter and it is not a sealed system.
Power trigger must be squeezed the whole time you are using the vacuum, causing finger fatigue.
Charging base/docking station does not seem very durable.
Quite a bit more expensive than other combo stick/handheld vacuum cleaners.
Not enough power to deep clean carpets or restore crushed pile.
The DC44 Animal Cordless vacuum is an ideal second vacuum for quick-cleaning or could easily be the only vacuum for a small studio, dorm room, boat or RV. With its increased 20-minute run time, more powerful floor cleaning ability, mini motorized tool and long-reach wand, the DC44 Animal will easily handle almost all of your cleaning tasks, floor to ceiling. This vacuum will greatly reduce the frequency of having to use your full-size upright or canister vacuum cleaner. The DC44 Animal cordless vacuum is expensive, but we are sure if you make the splurge you will be more than happy with ease of use, versatility and convenience of this little vacuum.
