Dyson Digital Slim DC72 Animal

No cord, yet out-cleans most full-size vacuums across hard floors and carpet*
August 21, 2014 - Powerful carpet pick up is no longer reserved for big, bulky cleaners. A cordless vacuum with a direct-drive motor inside the cleaner head, Dyson Digital Slim™ DC72 Animal has no cord, yet out-cleans most full-size vacuums across hard floors and carpet*.
With 24 minutes of fade-free cleaning time, suction starts strong and stays strong with a trigger that releases instantly so battery power isn’t wasted between cleaning tasks. It’s quick and easy to maneuver between high, low and hard to reach spaces and there is 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 per cent more brush power: A newly configured cleaner head with a direct-drive motor creates 75 per cent more brush bar power than DC 62 Animal to better agitate carpet pile and tackle ground-in spills and stains. 
All floor performance: While nylon bristles dig into carpets, carbon fibre 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 is wasted.  
2 Tier Radial™ cyclones: 15 cyclones work in parallel across two tiers to create 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. Plus storage is hassle free with a wall mounted docking station.

*Tested against upright market, dust loaded, using ASTM F608, ASTM F2607, & IEC 60312-1 5.2, 5.9.
