Does what its meant to do
Have been using Dyson (V8) for a while. This is way more powerful. Quicker cleaning time. Less bin emptying runs.
Have multiple rooms with thick carpet and a large vinyl floor. Have 2 large Goldens and 2 kids.
Only question ? Mine didn't come with the extra Battery Pack ? I got it from Goodguys.
Purchased in February 2021 at The Good Guys for $1,297.00.
I had read negative reviews about the Outsize’s weight which as a woman of 67, had me concerned. Happily it is not a problem. The floor takes most of the weight and instead of pushing with my arm alone as with old style vacuums I use my body to push and occasionally guide with my other hand. The floor area in the house is large so the bigger bin is great. Emptying it two, even three times is easy (and kinda fun). The wider head reduces cleaning time by a third as does not having to stop and plug in a barrel multiple times. Using tools might ye...t prove to be where weight becomes apparent as the bin canister and battery end is the heavy part of the machine - but I don’t care as I’m loving the rest so much. Suction and ease of use are incredible! It adjusts to moving between hardwood floors and hand made rugs without damaging either though I do avoid rug fringes as always. I’ve gone from hating vacuuming to looking for an excuse to do it. I’d highly recommend this machine.

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.
love it only had it a day
We have a 2 storey house, 4 dogs, the lounge, study and 3 bedrooms are carpet the Family room, kitchen/dining area and toilet,bathroom are tiles, I was able to vacuum the whole house and the barrel wasn't even full, it's a quieter machine than the V8 absolute that I had, I fully recommend the Dysonv11 outsize

I was a little skeptical, but my experience has made me a believer
I recently moved into a one bedroom apartment. The place had been "professionally cleaned" before I moved in so I didn't think it needed much attention. I wanted a vacuum cleaner to keep the place clean but didn't want a big and bulky machine. I was looking in JB HiFi at various stick vacuums and the differences between the Dyson V7 and the V11 Outsize. I was initially hesitant at the bin size and the motor size of the V11 and the higher cost, but looking at the features and how much more power and function it had, I went with the V11 Outsize. ...How my initial fears and hesitations were blown away within my first session! I have carpet in the bedroom, but hard flooring throughout the rest of the apartment. After charging the machine initially, I went through the apartment with the power head attachment just to get a feel of the machine. The wider motor head makes covering floor space a breeze, and near the connection with a stick tubing is an ingenious articulating bit which allows the power head to move and rotate really easily with the turn of your wrist. The power head picked up SO much dust and dirt! I was shocked as the place had a professional clean and the carpets had been cleaned as well (or so I was told). The powerful motor has such an ability to deep clean carpet without losing suction and it wasn't an effort to push along the carpet. I'm 6 foot tall as well and just felt this machine was nicely sized and didn't feel like I was straining my back bending over like I have using other vacuum cleaners. I followed with using the fluffy head cleaner and that picked up so much fine fluff and I don't think I really needed to use this after using the power head through the apartment but I was mesmerised with how fun it was/is to use the machine. All in all for 60sqm took me about 25 minutes (I was going slow just to have fun with the machine) and the results was half the bin full of fluff and dirt (see first picture). The battery went down to 60% with that 25 mins. It just boggled my mind as I'm a clean tidy person and didn't think there'd be much to pick up within 1 week of moving into a clean apartment. Emptying the bin is very easy - a bit like using a trombone. The clever thing as well is if there's dirt/fluff stuck on the stainless mesh higher up, the end of the bin brushes it down and out with the rest of the muck so you don't have to reach in and up to clean the stuff off. I really like this little touch. Closing is just to lift the trombone type slider back up and close the bin hatch.

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

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!

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.

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.

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!
Purchased in May 2020 at Betta Home Living for $1,299.00.
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.

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!
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.
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.
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.

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.
