DC32 Vs DC39

The following article is a brief objective comparison review between that of the Dyson DC32 cylinder vacuum and that of the Dyson DC39 cylinder vacuum -- going on to highlight both their differences as well as their similarities in terms of their respected specifications and features, along with a final verdict -- concluding which canister vacuum is the better of the two as well as which Dyson offers the best value for money.

Dyson Cylinder DC32 (Animal) Vs Dyson Cylinder DC39 (Animal)

Similarities in the Cleaning Performance

DC32: Constant Suction Power -- 280 Air Watts

DC39: Constant Suction Power -- 280 Air Watts

As can be seen from the above, when it comes to pure suction power -- nothing really separates them, both can be classed as extremely powerful canister vacuums, more than capable of dealing with standard domestic cleaning.

Differences in the 'Fitted' Technology

DC32: Root Cyclone Technology & Core Separator

DC39: Radial Root Cyclone Technology

The DC32 is fitted with Root Cyclone technology (RCT) to prevent it from loss of suction as well as a core separator which acts as an extra cyclonic stage allowing it to pick up even smaller dust particles.

The DC39 is fitted with the remodelled RCT -- radial root cyclone technology that again prevents the vacuum from loss of suction -- but can pick up even more dust and dirt than that of the standard RCT possessed in the DC32.

Differences in Manoeuvrability

DC32: Cylinder Vacuum. Fixed. Weight -- 8.78kg.

DC39: Cylinder Vacuum. Dyson Ball. Weight -- 7.5kg.

The DC32 is a fixed cylinder weighing in at 8.78kg, making the DC39 far more mobile -- where the DC39 is lighter and is also fitted with the Dyson Ball allowing the user to be able to turn on a single dime.

Similarities in Practicality

DC32: H:35.2 x W:30.2 x D:49.1 cm. Cord - 6.5 m. Reach - 10m. Bin - 2 litres. 

DC39: H:50.7 x W:36.8 x D:26.1 cm. Cord - 6.5 m. Reach - 10m. Bin - 2 litres. 

The DC32 is slightly more compact than that of the DC39 and hence easier to store, but in terms of vacuuming practicality both are identical.

Differences in Accessories

DC32: Combination brush/crevice tool. Stair tool. Dyson Turbine Head. Articulating Hard Floor Tool.

DC39: Combination brush/crevice tool. Stair tool. Trigger Head. Articulating Hard Floor Tool.

Both are similar in regards to accessories -- the only main difference being that in the DC39 the head of the turbine can be controlled at the handle to allow for adjusting between floor types. Moreover, if you purchase the Animal versions (E.g. Dyson DC32 Animal or the Dyson DC39 Animal) you are also equipped with the mini turbine head specifically designed for dealing with pet hair.

Further Information

The DC39 has been specifically designed for noise dampening.

Both are provided with the lifetime washable HEPA filter that prevents the vacuum expelling allergens into the air. 

Moreover, both are backed by a 5 year warranty (parts and labour) when bought new.

Should You Buy the DC32 Canister Vacuum or the DC39 Canister Vacuum?

DC32 Animal: £319.99

DC39 Animal: £339.99

As can be seen from the above it is pretty clear that the DC39 presents itself as the 'slighty' better vacuum cleaner (with more up-to date technology, better mobility and more useful features). Moreover, the difference in price is only £20. So the question to be asked is whether the DC39 is worth that extra £20 in value? Quite simply -- Yes.
