    Product Overview

    With a 40 minute run time from a single charge, this Dyson cordless vacuum cleaner is perfect for giving your home a thorough clean. The Direct Drive floorhead is powered by the motor, so it’s really effective at removing ground-in dirt from floors. Plus, if you’ve got a few dust balls hiding out under the bed, the Reach Under tool has a long neck and attaches straight onto the vacuum, making it easy to get into awkward spaces. This model is great for allergy sufferers too, as the HEPA filter removes nasty bits from the air and locks them in. And when you’re all done, just aim it over the rubbish bin and push the Hygienic Dirt Ejector button, for quick and easy emptying.

    Key Features

    • Up to 40 minutes run time from a single charge
    • Bristles work hard to remove stubborn, ground-in dirt
    • Nifty tool makes it easy to reach under sofas and beds
    • HEPA filters remove allergens from the air in your home
    • Hygienically empty the bin at the push of a button

    Dyson V8 Animal

    Cord-free. Hassle-free. Powerful suction.

    Up to 40 minutes of fade free suction

    Quickly converts from a floor vacuum to a handheld. For powerful, cordless cleaning everywhere around your home and car.

    *Stated run time applied to powerful suction mode with non-motorised tool attached.

    Reach under tool

    Twists and locks for easy cleaning under furniture. No need to bend down.

    Certified asthma and allergy friendly

    Advanced whole-machine filtration captures allergens and expels cleaner air back into your home.

    Drives dirt from all floors

    The direct-drive cleaner head’s motor pushes stiff nylon bristles into carpets to capture deep-down dirt.

    The Dyson digital motor V8

    Digital pulses switch the polarity of neodymium magnets, to spin the patented Dyson digital motor V8 at up to 107,000rpm - five times faster than a Formula One car engine. Producing up to 115 Air Watts, it generates powerful suction on carpets and hard floors.

    Patented 2 Tier Radial cyclones

    15 small cyclones each generate powerful g-forces to fling dust into the bin. The post-motor filter is 1.5m of ePTFE porous membrane sandwiched between layers of PE/PET, folded 158 times to fit in a compact space. It’s optimised to provide filtration with minimal pressure consumption, for more suction. So it captures microscopic dirt particles as small as 0.3 microns – almost 100 times smaller than the width of a human hair.

    Redesigned battery chemistry

    The six-cell lithium-ion battery has been engineered with nickel-cobalt-aluminium (NCA) chemistry. The NCA cathode offers high power capability, with the ability to store a high charge per unit volume and to discharge this energy quickly. Which gives the Dyson V8™ vacuum up to 40 minutes of fade-free power - double the run time of its predecessor.

    Dynamic Dyson

    SUPER !! Great vacuum cleaner, so light & easy to use. Great having dual power control for those heavier jobs. Can clean right through house with one charge. Definitely recommend.
    Shelagh Cooper

    Fantastic vacuum

    Brought this to replace our old Dyson Corded Ball as after cleaning up after the renovations it was a little worse for wear. Absolutely love this new Cordless version! Great on the new carpets. I ordered the Animal for the motorised head as although we don’t have a pet my long hair seems to get everywhere, the V8 Animal is brilliant at getting my hair up!! Easy to empty once you work out what the diagram is trying to tell you. A little heavy with the long stick and head on which actually makes sense as I was used to pulling the old Corded Ball one around and only carrying it up/down stairs. Definitely recommend this vacuum, makes the hoovering super quick which also means I can do the whole house several times one the same charge!

    100 times better

    It is 100 times better than our old battery Hoover!

    Dyson V8

    Read up on this compared to the V10 Not much real life performance difference and the V8 is more compact and £50 cheaper Unit is well made (Dyson after all) and the emptying is well designed Would highly recommend

    Great vacuum.. when on max mode

    Vacuum is great for getting hard to reach areas, including vacuuming out the car. However is has some trouble picking up fine powders when not on max suction mode.

    Wished you didn’t have to hold the button

    Love my new Dyson v8 animal it’s great for dog hairs and very light would definitely recommend
