This vacuum is outrageously good.
I used my V6 on my floor and carpet then immediately used the V11. After I finished the The v11 got half full!! I am So impressed with how powerful this is. Dyson have clearly taken onboard years of feedback and actioned this in this vacuum! Well done!
Given me injury
I vacuum every day as I have cats, dogs and kids. Does a good job and has a good battery life but you have to maintain a grip on the trigger to keep it down. This gripping in conjunction with the machine being very heavy and the repetitive back and forth action has caused me to have tennis elbow. The extra large bin is unnecessary as the battery runs out before it’s even 1/2 full. I wish I would have just got the regular V11, not the outsize and I think Dyson should change the trigger so you don’t have to keep it pressed down. I now only use it for quick jobs and have gone back to the Miele corded vac for big jobs over 5 mins.
Very disappointing Would not recommend
I purchased the dysonv11 outsize in early April it worked well for 2 months and then I started to notice when I pulled on the trigger it wouldn’t always start straight away I perservered with it and it stopped working completely at the start of July after owning it for under 3months I rang Dyson and non of the troubleshooting worked I was informed that to have it fixed ASAP I should take it for a 2 hour drive to Mount Waverley which I did I still have no vaccum I have rung Dyson and the lady on the phone was lovely but has no answers to when my less than 3 month old vaccum will be fixed so after 3 weeks I am unable to vaccum my home

When the missus bought her parents a Dyson V7 i told her she was mad for spending $500 on a vacuum cleaner... I used it once and went straight to Harvey Norman and purchased a V11. This thing is a beast, i have never seen anything pick up cat hair like this beauty does. The bigger bin and the interchangeable battery (optional extra) make the Dyson V11 Outsize Pro unbeatable in my eyes.

Fabulous vacuum but hard to handle
Very strong suction perfect for all types of flooring and carpets. Top heavy, wish the switch was lockable, painful holding it down while using. Not ideal for anyone with arthritis.

Dyson v11 outsize is awesome as it’s bigger and better than my previous v7 the head is bigger and wider which picks up more and the capacity in the dirt canister is huge which means we don’t have to empty it as often. So overall good product but a little heavy on the hand.

Best dyson so far
Brought for $1275 from the goodguys and haven't looked back, this is the best dyson by far, I have had several dyson over the years. Upgrades from a dc23 corded vacuum and the first time we used the v11 it had picked up dirt that our old dyson had left behind. Got to admit it was a big outlay to purchase but it's looking like it's worth it.
Purchased in May 2020 for A$1,275.00.

WOW just WOW
What's lurking in YOUR carpets?! This is from a 14min 54sec vacuum of a small 4x2 house (mine) tonight, with the Dyson V11 Outsize Cordless Stick Vacuum. My house of boys and cats is vacuumed at LEAST once per day with a Dyson V7 Animal Stick, and once every weekend with "Henry", a corded vacuum cleaner that comes with me on cleaning jobs. Absolutely horrified at what my daily vacuuming has NOT been pulling out of the carpets!
Expensive, so far good
I have never been a fan of Dyson products. But after seeing some adds on tv I got thinking, I'll do some research and found it interesting and positive. I took the plunge and shelled out the $1299. Well packed good amount of attachments. One big disappointment is that it came with one battery, the videos I watched on YouTube from U.S.A come with two batteries. I notified Dyson Service Australia why we in Australia get only one battery? I have had no contact from Dyson, its now been 0ne month and I still have not received any correspondence from...Dyson, that's not good. Anyhow the outsize is surprisingly good. If I need to use it on boost I get only 8 minutes use out of the battery, two batteries would be handy, Dyson! Using the outsize on medium I should get 30 minutes use?. Overall I'm happy but I have concerns, the warranty is 2 years repair warranty at $1299 warranty should be a replacement and or 5 years warranty. Secondly how long is this thing going to last before it starts to break down? I had a Bissell 25v and had trouble with the foot assembly, Bissell sent me a new one free of charge 2 years after the warranty, fantastic! Time will tell.. There is one big concern, what happens if or when this vacuum goes out for repair,??? We don't have another vacuum cleaner..!!!
Poor build quality
Our Dyson v11 outsize is a pleasure to vacuum with and works extremely well. The main concern is the poor build quality of the product. Straight out of the box and whilst we are using it the battery falls out. You may think oh well didn't put it in properly until it keeps happening. Then we put up the wall mount and hang the vacuum only to notice a 5mm gap between the battery and handle, emphasized more because of the sheer weight of the product. Contact Dyson to be told this is unusual, you need to send it in to be checked and there lies the r...eal problem. 3-5 business days to wait for a label, minimum 2-3 weeks once with the technician and then return time. Now that amount time in my household without a vacuum is going to cause some real issues with dust, dirt etc on carpets. A poor turn around from a customer service point of view which sours the whole joy of a new product that works well
Perfect! Best vacuum ever!
I just purchased this vacuum and I LOVE it! I haven’t vacuumed so much in my life- out of sheer joy to see how much it picks up! I could not be more impressed and I strongly disagree with most of the unfavourable comments made in the article! My rugs and carpet piles look and stand like new- and there is not one particle left in my hard floors. Looking forward to testing it on the lounge when our new puppy arrives.
This machine is a beast.
With 3 little boys and a dog - our house is always a mess. I am constantly cleaning food crumbs and dog fur. My 3 year old is messier than the cookie monster and the dog fur is so difficult to keep on top of. I have been managing on my beloved DC35 Dyson stick vacuum, now 9 years old.
In need of a new more powerful vacuum cleaner, I was looking for something more agile than an upright, something quiet, compact, powerful and fast.
I invested in the V11 Outsize and have not looked back. This machine is a beast. It is powerful, you can see it s...ucking the dirt from all around, it is light to use on the stairs and I can store it in our tiny entry cupboard by storing the wand and the drum separately. It is also has a new feature that makes it super easy to remove any long hairs that have become wrapped around the spinning head. The wider head also means you can cover more floor area in less time. With the power of an upright vacuum cleaner, I can whip around our house in 15 minutes and have a result that feels like a deep clean. This could may well mean we no longer will need to invest in a weekly cleaner.
Very handy with a couple of obvious detractions
If you hate dragging out the vacuum cleaner and connecting it to a long extension cord to vacuum the car then the Dyson V11 Outsize certainly makes life much easier.
If you hate dragging around a vacuum cleaner while reaching for those hard to reach cobwebs... then this vacuum cleaner is for you.
If you hate cordless vacuum cleaners that barely suck... then this vacuum cleaner is for you.
Yes the Dyson is convenient... but it has a couple of obvious detractions.
1) The V11 Outsize came with a truck load of fittings... none of which fi...
I am in love with the Dyson v11 Outsize! A quality product which makes cleaning so much easier.
The Dyson v11 Outsize arrived just in the nick of time! I had moved house and couldn’t find the charger for my old vacuum cleaner in the myriad of boxes around me and I was slowly becoming overcome with dust and dog fur which my broom couldn’t gather as it seemed to drift up and away from me rather than in the dustpan.
I have never owned a Dyson vacuum before, but my previous vacuums were not exactly cheap and I had paid between $400 - $800 over the years for various brands with various success. My current vacuum was a VAX upright cordless 20...V VX7 which I purchased in 2015 for $449. Aesthetically, the Dyson v11 is beautiful. The red colour finish wouldn’t look out of place on a red ferrari. There are quite a few parts in the box and the unit and accessories are well packaged within recyclable cardboard. The Dyson v11 comes pre charged at 20% and needs to be charged fully before use. This took a few hours and I kept checking as I was excited to put it through its paces. The LCD screen shows the amount of charge the vacuum has left (see photo) and there is also a blinking blue light on the handle which turns to a steady blue light once the unit is charged. Once the unit was charged, I started vacuuming my hardwood floor which had previously been vacuumed by my floor robot ‘Cherry’. I was astonished at the fist full of fur that was picked up by the Dyson when I thought the floors were relatively clean (see photo). The vacuum was very easy to assemble, however, I did wish there was a manual included and more instructions for the different heads and attachments. A small pamphlet was included with a link to the website which led me to a page that didn’t help with the setup or included tools. However, this is a minor inconvenience though as googling “how to use Dyson vacuum tools” will help you figure out what the different attachments can do and googling for the manual will help you find it to figure out how to clean and use the device correctly. I noticed that my long hair does not get tangled in the rollers on the turbo brush attachment. Every vacuum I have ever owned including my old vacuum and my current robot vacuum always tangles my long hair around the roller and I have to cut it away when cleaning the roller to ensure that the vacuums suction isn’t affected. The Dyson suctions my hair straight to the canister without tangling around the roller!
A modern vacuum for the 21st Century
This is my first Dyson product and I am excited to review it, having used it now for a month.
Prior to the V11 Dyson Outsize I had corded upright and barrel cleaners.
It is a four bedroom home with five occupants and a dog. There are four different types of flooring; ceramic tile, black sculptured carpet, rugs, and laminate flooring.
VALUE FOR MONEY: The RRP for the Dyson V11 Outsize is $1349. This is a large outlay for most people. Thinking back over the past ten years though I have replaced vacuum cleaners three times because they faile...d..total spend was $1119. From the reviews I have read and from what friends who own them have said, Dyson's run on for a long time, you can buy spare parts, and their customer service is apparently good. It seems the value is there. MANEUVERABILITY: The V11 Outsize is the heaviest of all the Dyson stick cleaners as it has the largest dust canister and an extra large floor head. Despite this I found it to be comfortable in my hand, the trigger within easy reach, and with a turn of the wrist it moved easily around things like furniture legs. The weight of the dust canister didn't feel particularly heavy when vacuuming the floor, although it did when I held it up to clean the air-conditioning grate in the ceiling. It was also very maneuverable when cleaning under beds. EASE OF USE: The cordless feature of the V11 Outsize makes it really easy to use. No more dragging a cleaner behind you and it getting hung up and having to go back and free it up. After a month of use I am just starting to accept that there is no cord to trip over.
Quality and Performance - Does a great job effortlessly
The Dyson V11 Outsize impresses immediately for several reasons as soon as it is out of the box, unpacked and assembled.
The first is the ingenious environmentally friendly packaging protection for the individual pieces which I can only describe as very practical cardboard origami. An example of one piece is in the photo which I couldn't resist including.
Secondly, the sturdy well-built quality and innovative design I have come to know from previous Dyson products that I have owned is obvious, where the high-quality plastic construction is ...clear evidence of the built to last philosophy. Thirdly, the comprehensive array of tools to cater for any task to be asked of a vacuum, stick or otherwise. Once put to use, the power of the V11 combined with the flexibility of individual cleaner heads and tools assures performance second to none. The High Torque XL cleaner head not only automatically adjusts power to suit any floor type, but also features 2 adjustable (3 position) vents so that suction can be varied closing vents to deep clean carpets and opening when less suction is required on hard floors. There are also 3 power modes determining power and associated battery run time which are easily selected using a single button. The modes in increasing power order are Eco, Auto and Boost.
Fantastic vacuum cleaner, very convenient, long charge at full power
I was sent a Dyson V11 outsize to use and review, as part of the Ambassador Program.
I can’t tell you how excited this made me as for the last year or two, I have been considering buying a Dyson cordless to use in my family room, so to get the latest version has been like hitting the jackpot.
And I haven’t been disappointed.
When I looked these up online, I saw one retailer had them at $1299. For this price, you would expect good performance and the machine has not let me down. But like most things you buy, it isn’t absolutely perfect, so I h...

Great for dust bunnies. Not great for wookies.
As somebody who seems to be far too good at tripping over cords or yanking them out of the wall at the worst time, the Dyson V11 has been a welcome surprise. As somebody who also has lots of fluff and long hair lying around, the Dyson V11 hasn't improved my mood very much. The very short version of my review is as follows: the V11 Outsize is great for regular quick and smaller vacuuming jobs but it's not the best if you have lots of very dusty, dirty, and hairy vacuuming to take care of, and especially not if it's on uneven hard floors. Now for...the long version... Having used portable battery-powered stick-vacuums at friends' houses, getting one of my own was a relief. My house is quite small but I have lots of things in awkward places and my ancient-but-trusty bag vacuum keeps getting stuck on things or the cord will wrap around something expensive and pull it over whenever I need to venture into far corners. With the V11 Outsize I can now leap around like a twit and not level the contents of my house in the process. I mostly have hard wood floors, some kinda lumpy tiled floors, and rugs to hide them all. The V11 is not a weakling by any stretch! One rug in particular must be vacuumed on the 'Eco' setting otherwise the V11 lifts the rug off the ground unless my full weight is behind it (and I'm quite tall). What did disappoint me though is with all that suction power, some objects on hard floors just won't go up the tube. I spent over 5 minutes trying to vacuum up a single piece of popcorn but the recalcitrant oversized crumb would not yield. If it wasn't blown away by air coming out of the vacuum head, it would get stuck inside the head and pretend to disappear only to reappear when I moved to a new section of floor. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong, but my old (corded) vacuum won't let anything survive whereas the V11 seemed to have trouble taking up objects that weren't already very small. For example, a puffy ball of dryer lint wouldn't go under the head - instead it would be blown a few centimetres away. A coffee bean - it simply wouldn't fit under the front of the vacuum head without me lifting the whole unit up and placing it on top, but then sometimes it would blow the bean away first. A plastic bread bag clip - nope! A toothpick - NUH! These are all items my huge corded vacuum willingly eats that the V11 Outsize couldn't sink its teeth into at all, or not without lots of fuss. As for rugs, it does a brilliant job on those - really really good. Because my house isn't a mansion, I could vacuum all the rugs and floors three times before having to recharge the battery. If you need to tackle a large house with lots and lots of thick carpets, I doubt you'd get through it on one charge. With that said, if you (like me) don't treat housework as a marathon event that must be finished all in one go, the V11 is perfect for working on a small section of the house at a time. I definitely use it more than my old vacuum cleaner simply because I can grab it and walk anywhere in the house without having to perform tantric yoga to reach a spare power plug.

Suction, suction, suction
I have carpet, vinyl and tiles
First thing I noticed was the lack of a manual, until I discovered that one could download it.
The packaging was very good and was surprised by all the attachments that came with it.
It is a great vacuum cleaner, and for my home, the battery lasts long enough to do my whole house. My problem is possibly age-related, but I did find that when using the attachments, it is too heavy and hard to manoeuvre in tight spaces. There is no way I would even attempt to use it for anything overhead.
Also, possibly because I...

Road Testing the Dyson V11 Outsize Vacuum Cleaner and How It Comes Up
Thank you for the opportunity to road test the Dyson 11 Outsize. It is a privilege to be able to comment on such a high-quality product.
The My wife and I live in a single level house internally about 350 m made up of about 40% carpet/rugs and 60% Timber/Tessellated Victorian tiling for the working areas. We already have a Dyson V10 Absolute, which provides for our quick/small clean jobs in Lieu of our main vacuum cleaner, a Miele Jubilee that is about 12 months old. Our carpets are 100% cut pile high quality wool.
After I unpacked the Dyson ...V11 Outsize I noticed there was a little more packaging material with this unit compared to our Miele as I decided coincidently, for space, to recycle both. What struck me most at the start was the size of this unit and its bin. Without reading the instructions, I decided to test run the ‘V11’ After a full charge being familiar with the V10, I assumed there wouldn’t be much difference. In the AUTO setting I noticed how much quieter the V11 was compared the V10, but at the same time I noticed a lot of fluff from the bedroom carpet being collected in the bin, which was surprising as there wasn’t any evidence of loose fibres. This alarmed me because this machine obviously had vastly increased suction which would seriously deplete the carpet pile, shortening its life. Immediately, I changed the head and reduced the suction to medium, but still excess carpet fibres were being collected in the bin, more than I was comfortable with.

Questions & Answers
We have just purchased the V11 outsize and find the dust head pulls firmly to the right when vacuuming, we cannot understand why it is doing this even on ECO mode.

This is certainly not to be expected. We would encourage checking the wheels underneath the floor tool and ensuring all the wheels are clear of debris and spin freely.

I bought a Dyson V11outsize yesterday I didn’t even use it for 30mins and it’s stopped working altogether and smell like burnt rubber !!!
I probably used it for 20minutes with intervals in between (I’m over estimating the time I used it for ) , I wish I bought something different expensive and disappointing
Dyson Team ..Dyson
While new machines can have an unusual small, a burning rubber smell is not to be expected.

I bought your Dyson v11 outsize 2 months ago and it just stopped working?? I’m told by your customer service officer to take it to your factory in Mount Waverley (because wow this is a first very unhelpful ) she stated they will have a quick look at it To see if it’s a quick fix so I drove 1 and a half hours to the factory to be told that no we don’t do that you’ll have to leave it here for up to 3 weeks my question is so how do I vacuum my home I have 2 children and 2 dogs carpet and tiles and no vacuum whatsoever for up to three weeks I buy a $1200 product which is faulty and now I am left absolutely devastated that I have no way of keeping my home clean
I was told that after 2 weeks I could not take it back to shop and had to contact Dyson but had no idea it would be that hard. Not good at all for such an expensive product from a very reputable company. I would have thought they would replace it for you. Not good customer service Dyson! Buyer beware!
