Best vacuum ever

Really love this vacuum - incredible suction and the easy way to empty it without touching the contents is great. Amazed at what it collects and shows how no other vacuum
I have ever owned really ever cleaned the carpets. I have just had my hardwood floors resurfaced and it is actually fine on the wood also (without scratching) Show details ·  1

Great Vacuum I love it

Purchased the Dyson V8 absolute when it was on special in January, fabulous vacuum.
Easy to manoeuvre, light weight, they give you lots of head options, very easy to use, quiet, extremely practical and to open the canister and empty so easy. Show details ·  1

A lot of suck for its size

The Dyson V8 Absolute will be a pleasant surprise. I ran my old Dyson vac over my bedroom floor and then followed it up with the Dyson V8 and was shocked with the results. The V8 Absolute was easy to maneuver allowing me to access those difficult areas in the room that a normal vacuum won’t.

The filter system is user friendly and easy to clean. The electronic digital screen notifies you when the filter needs cleaning. Show details

When only the best will do

I've always been a huge fan of Dyson products, so there was never a doubt that I would choose a Dyson V8 hand vac. It never disappoints, highly recommended Show details

best vaccum machin with less battery capacity

So far this is one of the best vaccum machin I used. Only one issue is battery. Dam 20 to 25 mins Max. Otherwise a great product. Show details

Useful and convenient

This vaccum is great for cleaning around the house- lasts about 45 minutes for me.
The rubbish section empties super easily with a simple click.
Vacuuming forwards is smooth and picks up everything however if you drag it backwards it doesn’t pickup well just sweeps the debris until you push it forward again.
It’s lightweight for me though my mother who is older says it’s heavy for her Show details

Love it. Can’t do without it

Even though it is an earlier model it is great. Would not hesitate to buy the same model as now much cheaper. Thinking of getting one for upstairs. V8 is still a good model to buy as have come down in price. Show details

Perfect and light on hands

This vacuum is powerful enough to do daily cleaning (make sure you use the regular suction option for a prolonged time to clean.
Then you can use the Max suction for carpet / soiled areas.
The weight is perfect for me as I have a carpal tunnel. Show details

Can the battery be replaced?

Richard B.

My dyson will run perfectly fine on extended run but when switching to max suction doesn't even last a second no matter the state of charge. Dyson had me order a new battery even though this has been an issue since new. Now on its third battery with no solution. Does anyone have a fix for this because max suction is useless at this point?

Just received my Dyson V8 yesterday. We charged it overnight, approx. 12 hours. We used it this morning ( yes, mistakingly on Max power ) and it cut out within 15 min. It's now charging again and my house is only 1/4 vacuumed with guests coming in 5 hours. Obviously very frustrating. I've tired most suggestions I could find online but nothing has worked. Thank you for any help. Annie
