I purchased the v11 outsize a year ago. I have 3 children, 2 indoor cats and 1 indoor dog. Yes, the dog is a shedder. My vac hasn't skipped a beat. Not only does it pick everything up, but can do the whole house in 1 go. The normal setting with the large brush is all you need as the suction automatically adjusts when going from tile to carpet and vice versa.

- V11 Outsize
Extremely effective cleaner on carpet and tiles. Easily detachable sections for various heights & spaces. Sensible suction speeds. Easy to empty and clean. Large head still fits between chair legs eliminating the need to move everything. Great value and we highly recommend.

I love it
I very quickly adjusted to the weight and love the bigger head.
Vacuuming is so much faster and happily goes from wood to tiles then carpet. I even vacuum the fur off the patio cushions.
It picks up kitty litter which our earlier model struggled to do.

Excellent suction & Great for dog hair!
Excellent vacuum for all surfaces including couches. Only down side to this vacuum after owning for more than 1 year is the size and weight of it. Gets quite heavy and hard to handle. Excellent for picking up dog hair. Only good for long term use on auto power not maximum.

An excellent addition to an exceptional product set
I purchased the V11 Outsize approx 3 months ago, since then it has been subjected to many challenges including cleaning hair out of carpet, cleaning mattresses and what was a very dusty corduroy lounge suite. The extra wide head and larger collection bin is great given that the vacuum now has about 60 minutes of run time on one charge, not to mention batteries are now quickly and easily changed in a few seconds to give you even longer run time for extra large cleaning jobs. The new filter design is very easy to clean and the LED display gives y...ou accurate battery and suction power information. The new variable suction is great at finding extra dust or dirt in floors and quickly adapts to the right suction power level as required. I highly recommend the V11 Outsize, it is a formidable player amongst an already exceptional team of champions that go before it.

Best vacuum I've ever owned
Over the last 15 years I've owned multiple vacuums ranging from cheapos to high end expensive ones and this has got to be the best one yet. It seriously picks up everything from crumbs on hard wood floors to embedded dirt from my rugs and carpets. It's larger multi floor tool head means I can get my vacuuming done quicker and it's roller inside the head almost never gets tangled with hair. The fluffy head tool is amazing too for my hard wood floors. No more pushing around rubbish pike the traditional vacuums do. The suction power is almost as g...ood as a corded vacuum. The large bin capacity is what sold me on this outsize model, can get my whole house done without needing to empty the canister. I can actually do my house twice without needing to empty it. Freaking amazing... seriously this is the mac daddy of all vacuum cleaners. You will not be disappointed. That's a guarantee.

Overpriced and poor quality
Had the V11 Outsize Pro for just under a year and now that it's broken for the second time thought i'd write a review. Completely overpriced and sub-par performance. My V6 was a better vacuum, notwithstanding the battery. Battery on this thing is great. Biggest issue, apart from it breaking twice in 12 months is that it doesn't vacuum well at all backwards with the outsize head and the other heads are standard size, defeating the entire purpose of it being outsize. This is our second Dyson. The first broke 3 times in 18 months and this one has ...now broken twice in 11 months. First time the outsize head broke, and now the pipe connection has broken. So no vacuum for 2 weeks the first time and now another wait for parts. Not good enough for a $1250 vacuum

No good for arthritis sufferers
I’ve had many Dyson products and for the most part, they’re pretty good if not expensive. One thing that’s always been a problem for me is the trigger action of their stick vacuum cleaners. Not bad for a quick cleanup but a 30-40 min session is a challenge for someone with arthritis and carpal tunnel. I bought the outsize mainly because the head is wider, covering more floor space at once. However, it’s heavy. Really heavy. Combined with the strain of maintaining the trigger, I end up in a lot of pain. Look, I know you can’t be all things to...everyone but Dyson you pride yourself on design and arthritis is a very common ailment. If you could incorporate some sort of mechanism (like a garden hose attachment) which enables the vacuum to run without holding the trigger, would make life a lot easier for people like me and I can continue to use your products.

A Weapon- Phenomenal!
Upgraded from the V10 to the V11. The V11 has somehow managed to pull out a canister worth of dust/dirt from carpets that were just completed with the V10 earlier that day! The suction is something else. The battery life is 10/10. Yes it is larger than a V10 but we do our home in half the time now because of the bigger footprint. Its a tad heavier but nothing to write about. I wouldn't go back to a V10 now.. massive upgrade.
Upgraded but Disappointed
I upgraded from a V6 that we have loved.
Pros : Vacuum time - barrel cleaning - attachments - Auto floors - AI on battery and usage times - quieter
Cons : really heavy that it hurts vacuuming on plush carpet on Auto - heads too wide for practical daily use - no mattress attachment as standard - bulkier storage
AND it has made me invest $50
on attachments for the V6
This is a lot of money and it is really disappointing as I have loved our Dyson V6 and our old Handheld. I am really concerned this will end up in the cupboard like our barrel vacuum and wish we got the V10 that was way cheaper but more practical

One of the best investments I have made
We have a 50sq house with a 30/70 hard floor/carpet. Love this vac, it is the only one we use daily. Great cannister capacity and good life on the battery. The carpet head does an excellent job, very impressed

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.

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.

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..!!!

Questions & Answers
I bought my Dyson V11 outsize 6 months ago, have not had an issue with it until a few weeks ago. It will not differentiate carpet to floor boards and is sucking at carpet power mode and obviously draining the battery so much quicker. Any tips on how to fix it?
Hi check the little screen on top it should say Auto and the bottom pad and roller should be clean .Hopefully it works
The Dyson V11 Outsize needs to be in Auto mode, with the Torque Drive Cleaner Head attached for the machine to change automatically between hard floors and carpets.
If the machine is in Boost or Eco modes, you are using another floor tool, the machine won't automatically change.
If you continue to experience difficulties, please don't hesitate to get in touch with our Dyson Experts, you can find ways of getting in touch here: https://www.dyson.com.au/support/contact-us
Yes I always have the machine in auto mode and the Torque Drive Cleaner is always attached.
My Dyson outsize works, however, the 2nd battery says charged and when I put it in nothing happens.
So we can get this sorted for you, we would kindly ask you to give our Dyson Experts a call on 1800 239 766 with your machine handy. Our helpline is open Monday - Friday 8am - 7pm and Saturday - Sunday 8:30am - 4pm AEST.
If you are not in Australia, please visit www.dyson.com and press "Contact Us" for the local contact information of the Dyson helpline in your area.
We look forward to hearing from you and assisting.
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.
If so and this continues, please give our Dyson Experts a call on 1800 239 766 with your machine handy at your convenience. Our helpline is open Monday - Friday 8am - 7pm and Saturday - Sunday 8:30am - 4pm AEST.
