The outside of the box needs a warning on it stating that it totally does not work on all carpets.
It did not work on my carpet at all - you needed to be a weight lifter or walk backwards for it to work on my carpet. I was told by Dyson that maybe BigW should have warned me and I replied that maybe Dyson should have printed the same warning on the outside lable. No answer for that suggest from Dyson. Because I did not use my v cleaner for a few months after my purchase nobody wanted to know about my problem and had already put the box into the bin. Not a happy customer. I noticed it is discontinued - I wonder why?????
Purchased at BigW.
Product of the year again
I use it on all surfaces. Car and house both benefit. Easy to clean and maintain. The roller in the head unit is replaceable but it lasts a long time compared to the amount of work it receives.
Great for my small unit and car
I bought the Dyson stick vacuum to make life a lot easier in my small unit. It's just so handy to use and the attachments are really great for different jobs including my car. I have both carpet and wooden floors in my unit and it does a great job on both. Even my 4 year old grandson likes to help vacuum.
V6 pretty much a fail. Should have purchased a later model
Bought the v6 stick from Catch this year. Big mistake, should have done my research. I only have hardwood floors and it doesn't pickup, just spreads debris around. Also dirt, fluff and hair get caught around filter so barrel needs removing every time. Push red lever down whole way as instructed but doesn't detach. Have to twist, pull and fiddle for a good 5 minutes then go through same thing to replace. Very, very frustrating machine. Sorry, wasted my money there!
Great little vacuum
I use this vacuum on carpet mats, lino and ceramic tiles.
Cleans all those surfaces quite well.
The vacuum is light weight and easy to use. Easy to clean, and so much easier than one with a power cord. Thus not limited to the length of the power cord. I use this vacuum almost every day. Would never be without it now. I hardly use my normal vacuum.
I have been asked to do a review on a product an I chose this particular machine. I love it.
Not hugely impressed considering it’s dyson
Not as quiet as all the adds make them out to be.
We bought this vacuum because we have a dog and a cat. The vacuum finds it almost impossible to suck up cat litter granules (they are literally paper pellets so very light) instead it just pushes them around and/or flings the cat litter granules across the room. Doesn’t pick up my dogs hair either which is almost like horse hair.
Doesn’t vacuum granular dirt either and struggles to vacuum dirt that sits along the edges of your room. String or fluff just gets stuck in the head of the vacuum CONSTANTLY!
It also throws out hella dust at you when you empty it because the latch is so difficult to open.
The bin is hard to open and empty. It’s loud. I could go on and on about how disappointed I am in this dyson vacuum.
great customer service
I bought this one a while ago,
very handy for a home with kids or pets, works on all surfaces
the best thing I like about it is the customer service,
I had some issue with the wand, Was broken and wasn't clear how it happened just gave them a call no question sent me a replacement straight away!
also, my son is allergic to dust(eczema),
this has a great filter

It's just the BEST
When I started using this vacuum, it was for all types of flooring ie. Carpet, rugs, linoleum, tile and wood flooring too.
Fantastic for dog and cat hair on upholstery.
It's light and amazing for the stairs and the cars.
It's great not to have to lug a heavy vacuum and worry about plugging in cords.
I have also said to friends and family it's a must.

Dyson V6 Animal is awesome
I have carpet and a large hard floor area, the Dyson V6 Animal is perfect, it's cordless, light and does a great job on my black carport as I have two (2) white Jack Russell dogs, picks up all my dogs hair without too much effort, it's also extremely simple to pull apart when you want to give it a good clean and change the filter, I would highly recommend this product.
WOW, what a joy to use
This is my new "go to" house hold appliance, we recently had new tiles laid in our home and this little ripper has allowed our new look home to stay looking brand new. Easy to use and easy to empty, our home wouldn't be the same without our Dyson V6 Vac, make your life better with a Dyson.
Purchased in February 2018 at Goodguys for $599.00.
Love ease of use,could not clean floors better.
Use on carpet, vinyl & ceramic tiles. Performs excellent on all surfaces going straight from one to another & never get my big cleaner out anymore. It's amazing the tiny dirt this vacuum picks up plus the fluff & hair, makes you wonder where it all came from. My floors have never been cleaner, so easy to use,empty, then back into the charger for next use.

Absolutely love this vacuum
We actually bought this vacuum in Australia and bought it home with us to NZ as we were visiting with my daughter and her family and they have one. It is very light and very easy to use. My old vacuum was great but too heavy. I noticed with this one even my two young grandsons could grab it and do their rooms with ease. I have also convinced my mum to buy one as well. It seems fine on any floor surface. We have it hanging up in a cupboard. Just a case of grab it, use it, empty it and hang it up again. Couldn't be easier.
Great quality and powerful
This mounted permanently in our caravan and is great for daily cleaning on a combination of carpet and lino. Only downside is the short battery life on the full strength setting.
I use this vacuum on hard floors and carpet and absolute love it , I have a long haired dog that sheds hair everywhere, within in not time at all the barrel is full of dog hair, would never have believed it if I hadn't seen it for myself, love it
I have carpeted areas and vinyl flooring, the Dyson V6 cord free allows me to vacuum these areas with ease and the battery life has also made it possible to vacuum in a timely manner. We also have a dog in the house and the vacuum is exceptional for the pet fur and easy access when needed quickly.
The battery charges within an acceptable time period and allows lengthy time to complete a whole 4 bedroom home without rushing.
Emptying the canister is a little hard, as there are times the dust sticks within the barrel and one needs to use something to remove, but that is the only downside.
Not having to drag a cord around is also useful, as this allows me to go from the top part of the home, to the downstairs.
There is limited noise level, and this also helps when the dog is around, it does not frighten him like the other vacuums do.
over priced, over rated, and not worth even close to the price
Carpets, wooden and tiled floors, light weight but, as the title of review say's I would not pay the price for any Dyson product to be honest I can go to my local Bunnings and buy any brand vac for half the price that does just as godd or better in performance.
Good stuff and easy to use
Laminate floor we have cuz of children, the machine works well for carpet but had to change to laminate floor, a bit worry at the beginning of floor change, however it really easy to use and clean floor properly. Only one disadvantage which is only can use about 20 mins then has to charge. Otherwise, super good.
best vacuum cleaner
Super strong suction that sticks onto floor. The different heads are also useful. Note that fillter needs to be washed regularly. Otherwise it smells bad. a bit noisy sacrifices for strong susction.
Purchased in January 2019 for $399.00.
Perfect cleaning arm!
The best in its league and I have used other brands of vacuum cleaners but this one is unmatched - it's light, easy access, use on all floors - couldn't do without it!
Love my Dyson V6 cord free!
I use this on all my floors. Carpet, timber and tiles. Does a great job picking up all the dirt, better than my Dyson barrel vacuum as it didnt have the brushes.

Questions & Answers
Frequently Asked Questions about Dyson V6
What are the differences between each Dyson V6 model?
The primary difference are the included heads or attachments. While all Dyson V6 models contain the same power, charging time, and bin capacity, each model offers a different head to suit a particular household need. For example, the V6 Fluffy model caters for households that have hard floors by including a non-scratching soft roller head.
Why is my Dyson V6 pulsating when I try to use it?
The pulsing or stop-starting noise indicates there is a blockage somewhere in the vacuum. It may be in the head, wand, filter, or bin (including the flap connecting the wand to the bin). Clear these areas and check no moving parts have hair tangled in them.
What does the red flashing light mean on my Dyson V6?
If the red light flashes 12 or more times it indicates there is a problem with the battery, and it may require replacement. Fewer flashes may indicate a problem with the body of your machine. Contact Dyson on 1800 239 766 for more information.
Can I charge my Dyson V6 in a very cold or very hot environment?
Dyson recommends that your V6 unit is charged in an environment that is between 3°C (37°F) to 40°C (104°F). It is recommended that you unplug and wait to charge your vacuum if your room is hotter than colder than these temperatures.
Can I leave my Dyson V6 to continually charge in the charging station?
It is safe to leave the V6 to continually charge; either in the docking station, or just the charger plugged directly in, so the vacuum is always fully charged every time you use it. You cannot use the vacuum while plugged in.
