For many, New Year’s Resolutions are in full swing. While I do not make an official resolution to ring in the New Year, I do set monthly goals for myself. One of my goals this year is to keep my house clean. With two little boys and a husband, I have come to terms with the fact that this is nearly impossible, but keeping the floors vacuumed regularly is a major step and the Dyson DC59 Motorhead Cordless Vacuum can be a huge help in sticking to that resolution.

What I Love

There are several accessories that come with this Dyson. Your package will include the following: mini motorized tool, combination tool, crevice tool, battery charger, removable wand, docking station, and of course the vacuum itself which includes a larger motorized tool. I love the wand for getting to hard-to-reach places like ceiling corners or just vacuuming the floor. While most would take the wand off for vacuuming stairs, I actually like to leave it on because it saves my back from having to bend over.

The direct-drive motor spins up to three times faster than regular motors and delivers direct power while the 15 cyclones work together to increase air flow and capture pesky dust. Besides the intense motor, this vacuum also has a “max” button that provides 50% more power boost for really tough places. You would not believe how much dirt I was able to get out of my stairs when I used this on boost mode. I love that I can feel comfortable about my kids playing on the floor now!

One thing I love the most about this Dyson model is that it is convenient. This vacuum is cordless so you can take it wherever you need to go around the house and even in the car! It is so lightweight (less than 5 lbs.) and is evenly balanced so you can clean up, down, and all around. The docking station allows you to hang and charge the Dyson in an easy-to-reach location as well. We have ours in the laundry room near the kitchen where our most frequent and biggest messes happen (one word: baby.) 

The filter is convenient as well. It pops right out from the top of the vacuum and is washable so there is no need for buying new filters over and over!

Click on the picture to read the review.Like the Dyson DC35 I reviewed a few months ago, the DC59 has carbon fiber bristles that aid in collecting fine dust and dirt particles. Unlike the DC35, Digital Slim models have 1.5 times more power. Its nickel manganese cobalt battery turns off when not in use, saving up its power and allowing for up to 24-minutes of use. Now, if you read my other review, you know that vacuum had a ton of power that lasted long enough to clean almost my whole house and that it scored high for me. With so much more fade-free power, you can only imagine how amazing the DC59 is! We have been using it for a few months now and it continues to work phenomenally. 

What I’m Not Huge On

There is not much I do not love about the DC59 Motorhead, however, there were a couple areas that could be improved. While I love all the attachments that come with this vacuum, I would really love to see a place to hang each along with the vacuum on the docking station. There are only places to hang three attachments and this comes with four. It is not difficult to store one somewhere else, but it would be a lot more convenient to have them all together.

The only other thing I would love to see improved on this vacuum is the collection bin. With the large amounts of gunk that is vacuumed up, especially on boost mode, the bin fills up pretty quickly. This is not a problem as long as you take care of emptying it regularly, but I do not always have time after I vacuum. Even though emptying is a breeze with the one-touch emptying button, not everything will fall out with gravity so I have to go do a more thorough cleaning later on.

Overall, the Dyson DC59 Motorhead is by far my favorite vacuum up to date. It is powerful, quick to pick up and use, fairly easy to clean, and the vibrant colors cheer me up. No more boring old black and blue vacuums for me. My husband and son love to vacuum with this as well which saves me some time and chores. Score!
