No, unfortunately. You can take unit apart with screwdriver, but Dyson does not recommend this.

I am thinking of purchasing a DC59 vac. what is the difference between the DC59 Motorhead Plus, and the DC59 Animal?

I have no carpeting in house - which model would work better. also, how long does the battery last, and what is cost to replace battery for the DC59 stick? Do the attachments for the DC65 Animal fit the DC59? I just purchased a DC65 animal, as well as some extra attachments, but it is overkill for my needs. going to give to my daughter, who has 2 dogs. Somewhat heavy for me to use, but I love the power it has. Would appreciate answers soon. thanks so much.
Asked by: homemaker
Hi this is Jay with Dyson. With proper maintenace of the machine per the user guide, the battery will last for many years of use until a replacement is required. Many DC65 tools will work great when connected to the bin nozzle or wand of DC59. DC59 motorhead contains a direct-drive motor in the brush bar, centralizing weight distribution of the brush bar driving stiff nylon bristles into the carpet to remove ground-in dirt. The direct-drive motor delivers direct power - 75% more power than DC59 animal. If you do not have carpeting in the home, I recommemd DC59 animal. If you have any other questions please let us know and we will respond as soon as we can. Best wishes, Jay Dyson Customer Care

DC44 Animal Digital Slim Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 2218.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Vacuum!! I have had this wand vacuum for 2 years. It is fantastic: portable, light weight, and very easy to handle and to clean. I especially love it for cleaning my carpeted stairs. It gets into the crevice and corners. It is my third Dyson vacuum, I also have the upright and a hand held and am very satisfied with all three.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Please put a locking mechanism on the trigger I LOVE this vacuum! It is the best for picking up dog hair! This is my second Dyson Animal. I specifically purchased the DC 44 because the run time is longer than my DC35. The 20 minute run time allows me to complete my daily vacuuming and has enough power to get up all the dust, dirt and pet hair in my house. I rarely ever use my large vacuum anymore. HOWEVER, I wish there was a locking mechanism on the power button. I have developed a nasty callous on my trigger finger from having to hold down the power button the entire time. That is my only complaint. I would gladly purchase another Animal if Dyson would add a locking mechanism.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun I'm a single guy w 2 dogs and 2 cats and dust bunnies gallore . This machine on one charge will wear you out and give you a mountain of nastiness to toss. Be sure and empty as instructed. Cordless untethered action makes cleaning a blast and the dogs love to get assaulted by contraption! Buy it !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea and design, poor engineering after repeated use wand extension tube becomes loose preventing proper battery connection causing shut offs. agitator brush becomes clumped easily especially if you have people who live in your household with long hair

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine I have had this DC44 Stick Vac for the past 3 years and it has been the best stick vac I would recommend Dyson to anyone. I like it so much I just bought the new dyson v6 Animal

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SO CONVENIENT Greta wireless vacuum compared to previous brands I purchased. The battery lasts, the bag less feature is a godsend. It work sand is reliable, so that says the most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific and fun stick vacuum! The suction for this stick vacuum keeps my kitchen and kitchen throw rugs free of dust and animal hair, which is quite an accomplishment for a non-vacuumer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five years and still a champion machine Today I bought two new Dysons. I have two other Dysons. The first I bought was the most expensive vacuum I thought I would ever buy. It is the big yellow ball vacuum. I think its a DC14 but not sure on the number. It was worth every cent. It is still a workhouse today after ten plus years of service. Then I purchased the DC44 five years ago. It is also a workhorse but in a different manner. Its the machine I grab to do a quick cleanup of a broken glass in the kithcen or a fast sweep of the back hallway after dragging in dirt from outside. I also use it to clean (don't tell the wife) my car, boat and my garage shop bench. Its really not my fault. I already had it out there to do the boat so why not do a little cleanup in the shop. Plenty of battery left when I got done with both jobs. I hate sweeping but grabbing the DC44 from the wall and cleaning the floors is a breeze. The engineering on it is so intuative that when it comes time to clean it up (so the wife doesn't find dried up fish bait or shop dirt) its a straight forward step to take it apart and snap back together. My kids think I am a bit nuts but I Love my Dysons. Wait until they come home for Christmas and see two more in the house.
