Good news, the new Motorhead DC59 has hit stores. No, not Lemmy, but another British establishment you may be familiar with, Dyson. While its portable and cordless, the DC59 will outperform many full-size uprights on both hard wood floors and even carpet. Yes, it’s a cordless that does carpet. On its battery, the DC59 gives you 24 minutes of cleaning. It’s light and flexible enough to clean just about anywhere. With its v6 motor, the DC59 is over one and a half times more powerful than the cordless it replaces and features a motor in the brush head for the most powerful cleaning. The vacuum produces 15 cyclones in a 2-tier arrangement to more such all the dust is picked up. When all is said and done, it docks easily onto a wall mount.
The Dyson DC59 Motorhead costs $549 and you can buy it starting today.

No cord, yet out-cleans most full-size vacuums across hard floors and carpet
Powerful carpet pick up is no longer reserved for big, bulky cleaners. The only cordless vacuum with a direct-drive motor inside the cleaner head; Dyson Digital Slim™DC59 Motorhead has no cord, yet out-cleans most full-size vacuums across hard floors and carpet*.
And with 24 minutes of fade-free cleaning time, it is quick and easy to maneuver between high, low and hard to reach spaces. No more fiddling with plugs or bulky machines, period.
James Dyson said, “Existing cordless machines simply do not deliver on carpets. By putting a motor directly in the brush bar, we’re able to push bristles deeper into carpets for superior performance, while maintaining the versatility of a handheld machine.”
75% more brush power: A newly configured cleaner head with a direct-drive motor creates 75% more brush bar power to better agitate carpet pile and tackle ground-in spills and stains.
All floor performance: While nylon bristles dig into carpets, carbon fiber filaments reduce the build-up of static charge, aiding in the capture of fine dust on hard floors.
Integrated motor technology: 1.5 times more powerful than its predecessor, the Dyson digital motor V6 draws power more efficiently from the battery. Nothing wasted.
2 Tier Radial™ cyclones: 15 cyclones work in parallel across two tiers to guarantee constant centrifugal forces that capture the finest dust.
Light, versatile and easy to store: A small, light motor in the hand, instead of at the floor, makes it easy to clean up top, down low and in between spaces. The lightweight aluminum wand can be detached for stairs, upholstery, cars and other compact spaces. And storage is hassle free with a wall mounted docking station.
