Had a V6 and wanted to upgrade without the cost of the latest version.

published

Current price NZ$499 looked a bargain compared to the latest offerings - and it is!
Does everything that was expected of it; better than the V6, and easier to empty with the newer mechanism.
Throw in the additional, small powered head, and it's the complete answer to any cleaning situation.
Our 3rd Dyson, and won't be the last.

I m using this product for more than 4years now. I been never disappointed so far.

published

I used on my carpets and wooden floor as well. It's just if they have something for cars. It would be icing on cake. It doesn't have proper equipment for cars.

Awesome

published

I use this vacuum on both my tiles and carpet.
I like the fact that you can select the strength of suction. I use normal suction on tiles and deep suction on carpet. Would be surprised how much extra dust it picks up even after vacuuming with our other vacuum cleaner. Only drawback is that if using deep suction it will not vacuum the whole house so by breaking up between deep and normal the battery will last

Useless don’t buy it

published

The suction is only half as good as my old Miele. The dust clogs the filter up every few minutes. It’s constantly stopping because of said clog up with only a quarter full in the catcher. It’s cheap plastic charging station is clumsy. You have to constantly change the head pieces for different floor areas. It’s actually the worst product I’ve ever purchased. I expected so much more with all the hype. Waaaay over rated.

Powerful Vacuum

published

This Vacuum has great power and is easy to charge and has a few useful tools. The 2 things I would like to be changed in a new model is the button that you have to press for it to stay on, it's exhausting holding that button continuously while vacuuming, it should have been hold down and it would get pressed and then you can vacuum and when you are done, you should be able to release the button. Also another battery would have been super useful to increase cleaning time.

Purchased at The Good Guys.

I use this Dyson on my floorboards & carpet.
Actually- this vacuum could work anywhere! Even the car. Picks up all the hair that’s stuck in carpet, In between cushions of couches, bathroom. This is a fantastic vacuum. Easy to clean to avoid build of hair. Excellent choice for anyone that has an animal that sheds hair.

Great Vaccum Clean, can't live without it.

published

I purchased the Dyson V8 animal from David Jones 4 years ago. The Vaccum had done an amazing job. I have all 3- Tiles, timber flooring and carpet and it always does an amazing job in all 3 surfaces. It is really handy when you have kids out and about as its a cordless vaccum and simply easy to clean up mass made by kids within minutes. It is definitely worth having one around.

I would give it a 5 star but i am starting to have battery problems now. But it has definitely done it job in the last 4 years.

Very useful for pets fur.

published

The brushes really lift off the hairs and fur bits of pets in the house. Sometimes it vacuums up so much, it can clog up with the longer hairs of my dog. Just have to take the head off the stick and clear it. Canister a little hard and awkward to empty, though, thus 4 stars. Battery lasts for ages and easily available when a replacement is needed. Using is easy and effectively efficient on all surfaces. Would recommend.

V8 Animal

We have hardwood floors throughout our house but we also have a long haired dog. I know the V8 animal is designed for pets and we are very open to that fact, however my question is, would the standard Dyson V8 do the job just as well [or close to as well] given the hard floor consideration or do you really only recommend the animal or animal plus version even with hard floors? Huge thanks!

I have been using ours on wooden floor boards and have not had any issues. I know there is another attachment you can purchase if you are concerned that is designed for wooden floors. I have been debating getting it but haven't as yet.
