With 40 minutes’ run time from a single charge, this cordless Dyson vacuum cleaner is perfect for giving your whole home a thorough clean. It uses 2 Tier Radial™ Cyclone Technology to improve airflow by separating air and dust for powerful cleaning. The Direct Drive Cleaner Head is powered by the motor, making it really effective at removing ground-in dirt. HEPA filters remove up to 99% of airborne allergens, making it ideal for allergy sufferers. It also has a useful docking station which not only stores your vacuum but charges it too.
As the main vacuumer of my household I am pleased to have found a vacuum that not only makes this chore a lot easier and quicker but also does a better job than my current, heavy vacuum cleaner. The Dyson V8 Animal Cordless Vacuum cleaner came in a fairly small and light box and was easy to unpack and assemble. It comes with a charging dock that can be attached to the wall easily with a couple of screws which provides storage for the Vacuum and most of the attachments. The smaller brush head has no obvious slot on the charging dock but seems to clip to the neck of the vacuum which does not look good and feels a little flimsy compared to how all the other tools attach to the dock. This could be that I have missed something but it is not covered in the instructions which makes it hard for me to know. Living with two cats that malt fairly heavily and a wife with long hair, I was eager to try out a vacuum specifically for hair and I have not been disappointed. It works great on our carpets and hard floors as well as being great for removing cat hair from our curtains which until recently has been a near impossible task. The handling of the vacuum is excellent with it being light enough to easily lift and move around and the ball joint on the main brush attachment makes vacuuming round corners very easy. The charge seems to last well on this vacuum, it was easily able to do our four-bedroom house on a single charge and it only takes five hours to become fully charged. The current charge level is shown with three blue LED lights in the handle and these turn off when the vacuum is fully charged. Being so small it does require emptying often. We managed a full vacuum of our house before it needed doing so this was not inconvenient. The vacuum does not use bags for collecting the dust which is good as it reduces waste however this does mean that once a month you should wash the filter. This can be easily lifted out from the vacuum and washed in water. I have found this vacuum a pleasure to use and would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend. After having always used vacuum cleaners with a cord this is a real game changer.
We've had the Dyson V8 Animal for a few weeks now and it's practically a member of the family. As soon as it arrived I charged it for 5 hours, as stated in the instruction manual. I was really impressed with the packaging, it wasn't a mission to get all the parts out and there isn't loads of unnecessary padding. The instruction manual is very simplistic, mainly pictorial but it tells you all you need to know. The animal is very lightweight, its easy to use even with one hand. I often have to hoover up the remains of my babys toast whilst I have her on my hip so the fact that it's lightweight is really appreciated. One thing I really love is how versatile the animal is. There are four different attachments so you always have the right tool for the job. Chasing from one to another only takes a second so it's not cumbersome at all. The battery life is a lot more impressive than other vacuums on the market although at first I was a little disappointed that the 40 minutes advertised isn't across the board. If you use the largest attachment on max mode you'll only get 5-7 minutes. As it turned out that wasn't a big problem as the normal level of suction has always been more than enough for my needs. So far i've used the animal on laminate flooring, carpet and upholstery. The results have been genuinely astounding. Dust I couldn't even see was suddenly filling up the animal. Speaking of filling it up, it's really easy and hygienic to empty. Another great feature! It's worth nothing that you need to clean the filters under running water weekly. We've recently wall mounted the unit and I think it looks great in our kitchen. The animal is really easy to take in and out of the dock, even with one hand. My only gripe is that there aren't enough storage holes for all of the attachments. Nevertheless I really wouldn't hesitate to recommend the dyson v8 animal to anyone. It's powerful, light and versatile. Perfect for any domestic needs.
We are pensioners with the odd mobility issue and need a cleaner that is simple to put together and use on a dailty basis. Nothing negative to say at all. It works like a dream at sucking up cat hairs and after a few attempts at operating the emptying lever, I now cant believe how easy it is to empty, just pull and the bucket opens with ease. It cleans just as easy on hard floors as it does the carpets. My husband tells virtually everyone he meets how we wouldnt be without it and actually now does almost all the vacuming. 10 out of 10 from us!
The main reason I wanted a cordless vacuum is that I find my current one such a hassle to drag around my flat and storing it is a real nightmare. I also have a Golden Retriever so we have tonnes of dog hair on the floor and sofa, which is really difficult to remove with our current vacuum cleaner. The Dyson V8 Animal is the best thing ever! It provides me with all the benefits of being cordless so it is completely hassle free to use, very easy to store and access and zipping round our flat takes no time or effort as there is no hose or cable to deal with. Unexpectedly though these are not the only benefits - it actually cleans better and is far more versatile than my current vacuum. The power of the suction used with the pet hair attachment, and the fact it can be used as a hand held vacuum, makes it absolutely brilliant at picking up all dog hair extremely quickly from our sofa and his dog bed - this is something I have really struggled with previously. We can also take it out to our car and use it to vacuum his hair and mud from the boot and foot wells. I also love the brush attachment used with the extension pole to clean the top of skirting boards and the attachment for hard to reach crevices is amazing. The vacuum is super light and easy to manage, especially with the floor attachment that has a ball head. I use it a few times a day for just a few seconds at a time and that really helps me stay on top of the dog hair, which any dog owner will know is a never-ending battle. I could never do that with my large vacuum cleaner as it takes more than a few seconds just to get it out of the cupboard and plug it in. I'm so thrilled with the Dyson and can not find any fault.
Easy to use, light and efficient and as my 85 year old Mum says, just fabulous! Stairs are no longer the beast in the hall! Oh no, for an independent woman of her years the cordless Dyson is a blessing and for a woman who likes to keep some independence, see 5 star results. I now would like one for myself!
This is great! Vacuuming is usually one of the household chores I really hate, but with this it's very easy. The machine is light, the attachments attach firmly yet are easy to change, cleaning the stairs is not the grim torment it has been up to now. The charge lasts long enough to cover most of a 3 bed house which is home to 5 cats among other residents. Still might need the more powerful corded model occasionally, I think, but all in all, I love this machine.
