The Dyson DC16 Animal handheld vacuum is the only handheld manufactured by Dyson specifically for pet owners. The DC16 Animal includes a mini turbine head with a motorized power brush to remove pet hair from furniture and automobiles. The power brush attachment also works to remove tough dirt from upholstered surfaces like floor mats and furniture.
The DC16 Animal also comes with a combination accessory tool which doubles as a brush tool and crevice tool in one. This handheld is the perfect solution for quick cleaning needs in the home, car, RV, or boat. The DC16 collects the dirt and debris in a clear bin which allows the user to clearly see what is being captured by the handheld and when the bin needs to be emptied. Like all Dyson vacuums, there are never bags or replacement filters to buy. Speaking of filtration, the DC16 Animal has two filters to capture dust and microscopic particles when vacuuming, keeping the particles in the vacuum rather than dispersing them back into the air. The filters are washable and reusable for the lifetime of the vacuum.
The DC16 Animal is powered by a battery which provides 6 minutes of constant run time from start to finish without stopping. Extended battery operation time can be anticipated if you are using the vacuum in short bursts rather than constant run time. An LED battery charge indicator alerts the user when the DC16 needs to recharge. When the battery needs to be recharged, simply place the vacuum on the wall mounted charger; a fully depleted battery will charge within 3 hours.
