Questions & Answers

Features we love

More time for powerful cleaning

Thanks to its brilliant run time, this vacuum cleaner lets you enjoy fantastic performance for longer. When it’s fully charged, it will provide powerful suction for up to 40 minutes without weakening. This means you’ll have plenty of time to give each room a really thorough clean, so you can effortlessly leave your whole home spotless.

Effortlessly remove every speck of dirt

You’ll have no trouble getting rid of ground-in dirt thanks to this model’s brilliant direct-drive cleaner head. With a greater brush bar power than other cleaner heads, the bristles will reach further into carpets. This means it can easily pick up dust and debris that’s stuck deep in the fibres, leaving your floors beautifully clean.

Quick and easy to empty

Thanks to the dust bin’s clever no-touch design, you’ll never have to get your hands dirty. When you get to the bin, simply pull the lever to get rid of all the dirt and debris. Not only does this mean it’s really quick and simple to empty, but it’s hygienic and mess-free too, making the vacuuming even easier.

Pick up dust found deep in carpet fibres

You’ll never miss a speck of dust or debris again with this vacuum cleaner’s motorised brush bar. When you attach this tool, the powerful motor drives the bristles so that they dislodge hair and dirt from deep in the carpet fibres. So, whether you’re cleaning up pet fur or ground-in mud, you know it’ll give incredible results.

Clear the air while cleaning your home

Thanks to the advanced filtration system, you can enjoy beautifully clean air as well as spotless carpets. With a pressurised rubber seal around the filter, dust and allergens can’t escape back into your home, so the air that’s released is cleaner than the air in the room. This helps you breathe easier while leaving your carpets perfectly clear.

As always, Dyson delivers. Great light weight vacuum. One of the main reasons I bought this was that every part is replaceable so increasing its longevity. Battery could still be have a larger charge.

Excellent vacuum

I am very happy with my Dyson V8. It is easy to use, is not too heavy and comes with a good selection of tools. The suction is good on the standard setting and the battery lasts well. On max setting the battery drains quickly but you only need this for really stubborn areas of dirt. I would say the V8 does a much better job than my old corded vacuum ( also a Dyson).

Excellent service & delivery

I bought the the V8 model because of its longer (40 minute) battery life. Handheld with no cable, it’s very easy to use with loads of tools. Infact it has become quite addictive - my carpets are the cleanest that they’ve ever been!

Animal is A Beast

Great Product, easy to use and easy to fix to wall. Suction is very good on both settings. Highly satisfied and happy to recommend other buyers.

Excellent Product

Ordering the above item through ao.com was so easy and understanding. I was guaranteed the item would be with me the next day and it certainly did and exact time of my slot. Very happy with the machine and it does just want we wanted it to do. Will definitely recommend this machine to my friends.

Exceeded my expectations.

A quick, easy and convenient cordless which is even better than I hoped. The suction is superb and cleaned surfaces well; moving from wooden floor to carpet with ease. Husband loves the ease of using in cars and used the turbo for longer than expected. The only thing I don’t like is that the movement of the rollerball is almost too floppy and I find it tricky to use against kitchen plinths and skirting boards. Overall though feels like a quality item and out performs previous Dyson vacuums we’ve had.
