Until the past decade customers looking to buy a vacuum cleaner had to make choices and compromises. There was no realistic way to produce a vacuum that was light, portable and easy to use while providing serious cleaning power. If you were in the market for a cordless vacuum your choices were even more limited. You couldn’t expect a lightweight cordless vacuum cleaner to do much more than an adequate job of cleaning carpets. It was good for ‘spot cleaning’ and light duty use but little more.
Thanks to continuous advancement in technology and design that is no longer the case. The top vacuum cleaner manufacturers deliver products that can do it all without having to compromise in one area or another. The cordless stick vacuum category is a prime example of this phenomenon. In the past, even a top rated stick vacuum could be expected to do little more than give drapes and upholstery a quick once over. Today, this type of vacuum cleaner can hold its own with full-sized devices.
Dyson DC59 Motorhead Cordless Stick Vacuum
The DC59 is the top of the line Dyson Stick Vaccum and one of the most advanced devices of this type on the market. The company proudly proclaims that the DC59 Motorhead will out clean a full sized vacuum cleaners over both carpet and hardwood floors. It is the product of engineering and design that made the countervailing goals of power and ease of use top priorities from the start.
The foundation of the DC59 is Dyson’s latest direct drive digital motor dubbed the V6. This motor efficiently uses 350 watts of power to turn at speeds up to 110,000 RPM. This RPM production is a fifty percent improvement over the company’s previous digital motor and up to 300% faster than ordinary motors. Despite this impressive output of power, the motor has a very small ‘footprint’ and is very lightweight.
Another innovative aspect of the DC59 motor is its location inside the brush bar. This placement combined with the direct drive design has several advantages that enhance both convenience and performance. Containing the power system inside the brush bar allows for a vacuum cleaner that is better balanced due to more evenly disbursed weight. This balance pays dividends in the form of more precise steering and superior ergonomics. The motor design also allows for a wider cleaning path and produces 75% more brush bar power than earlier Dyson stick models.
Dyson Quality and Technology
Dyson is famous for their proprietary ‘cyclone technology’ which increases the centrifugal force inside the vacuum creating stronger suction. In addition, this vortex enhances the DC59’s ability to clean debris such as hair and dirt that give many vacuums trouble. The company prides itself on making continuous improvement to this patented technology. In addition, the vacuum comes with several multifunction accessories for more difficult tasks.
The Dyson Motorhead gets its power from advanced battery technology that provides increased power, longer life, and shorter charging times. Also contributing to superior battery performance is an ‘instant release’ trigger that shuts the motor off when not vacuuming so as to not waste power. During ‘downtime’ you can store the vacuum its charging dock, so it’s always ready to go to work.
State of the Art Cordless Stick Vacuum
The Dyson D59 Motorhead has little in common with the mass market cordless vacuums found in the ‘big box’ stores. It is a high quality, durable and effective vacuum cleaner that will provide service for decades. For anyone seeking the state of the art in lightweight cordless vacuum cleaners, the Dyson D59 is definitely worthy of consideration.
