"Light and easy to use MD0907"
Pros: Easy to use, Good build quality, very light, easy to manoeuvre
"If you’re looking for a lightweight, cordless vacuum cleaner that really picks up well, this is the machine for you!
The device comes with four attachments to tackle different surfaces eg upholstery and wooden floors and we have found these very useful for tackling different floor surfaces (of which we have many!), and is therefore very versatile.
I think the tools are easy to attach and allow for cleaning of difficult-to-dust surfaces eg curtains, pelmets, sofas and cushions which is a really useful extra feature for use at home, especially in areas which are impossible to reach with a conventional vacuum cleaner, for example ceilings where cobwebs may have built up over time. I need to be able to lift the device above head height a lot and the Dyson does this with ease because it's so light and easy to manoevre.
Having a cordless cleaner that is lightweight but still very efficient like this Dyson has revolutionised our ability to clean flights of carpeted stairs quickly and easily – no more hauling heavy cleaners up and down with trailing cables.
The cleaner fits neatly onto the wall-held charger and I found this easy to fix to the wall but remember, you’ll need to do this within reach of a plug socket! Charging takes up to 3 hours or so which you might find a bit frustrating but you get 20 minutes cleaning time and I have found this enough for our purposes. There is also a six-minute high-power suction booster which I’ve found useful for cleaning areas with a lot of foot traffic.
Being a more compact device, there’s only one filter which I simply rinse under the tap and leave to dry for 24 hours. I've only had the cleaner for a week or so but envisage only having to do this once a month and it’s easy to check it from time to time anyway.
One last warning, don’t ask your Dyson to pick up anything like liquids or metal objects such as pins or paper clips as it’s just not designed to do so!
While the Dyson DC59A does cost more than some of its rivals, in my opinion, it is well worth the extra cost, to have a fast cleaning, lightweight and reliable cordless floor cleaner and has already proved its worth!"
