I've reached the age when I can't cope with a heavyweight vacuum cleaner anymore and had lost confidence when attempting to clean the stairs in particular. My new Dyson is the fifth cleaner currently in residence here and It puts the others to shame. I was apprehensive as my 'new friend' weighed so little and wasn't as hefty looking as the other four but how wrong can you be? I kept looking at the debris from my first vacuum session with the Dyson as I was embarrassed and shocked at the mound of muck before me. But also delighted to find how effective it was. I'm now a total convert. My Dyson is so easy to handle which was important but the fact that it really does clean to a very high standard is a dream come true.
Bought this as a replacement for my previous much loved Dyson Animal model which was stolen, bought this newer model as replacement and is more powerful and efficient than last model and i am really pleased with this model.
Bought this on a recommendation of another dog owner and have not been to happy with a different manufacturers cordless model on the wood floors. The Dyson has a far better all round cleaning result for wood floors and carpets. The major disappointment is the lack of charge time which seems to be less than 20 minutes so not sure at this stage if there is a problem with the charge retention of the battery. I'm going to run it a bit longer to see if this improves but if not then on the phone to the technical department. If they can't do anything then it's been an expensive alternative!
As I am getting older I have found it harder to use my vacuum cleaners, especially having arthritis in my arms. With the Dyson V6 it is light, easier to use and it cleans really well.Would definitely recommend it.
I was given a demonstration sometime ago and a friend has had one for a while. I'm really pleased I bought this product, it is light and easy to manouvre, gets underneath the sofa etc more easily than my large machine and is so convenient for picking up crumbs after eating.
We bought this machine basically on the reputation of Dyson and the experience of our larger Dyson vacuum cleaner, and we have not been disappointed. It is excellent! For the smaller vacuuming jobs and especially for stairs, we are absolutely delighted. It cleans really well, is so easy to use that it makes life much easier. The machine is really well manufactured and superbly put together, and when you use it you feel you are using a class piece of equipment. The docking/charging station is a must and could not be easier to use. We wish we had bought one a long time ago. This product has certainly enhanced Dyson's already excellent reputation.
This vacuum is so much better than my "old" Dyson and makes a superb job. As it is cordless, it is so easy for me to use - no struggling with flexes and easy to manoeuvre round objects. My arthritic joints no longer complain after I've done the vacuuming. An excellent product.
We have had the Dyson for two weeks. It worked straight from the box and had to be emptied twice before needing a charge!! The trigger means you can target dust and prolong the run time. We have used it on blinds hard floors and carpet, the suction is excellent, and we have hardly used our other vacuums since. It is really effective on pet hair. My wife loves it because it is so light.
I have loathed vacuum cleaning over the years, finding traditional models of cleaner to be cumbersome and awkward to use. Now, I don't find it such a chore. The Animal is light, efficient and I can complete the job very quickly. It has a very powerful suck, and it seems to remove far more dirt and dust than any other machine ever managed to. Emptying has to be done at every use, though it is quick and simple; this also, of course, means one is not carrying around too much added weight of sucked up debris. The battery seems only to hold charge for 20 mins, but this is plenty enough time to do the daily suck. My house is now more consistently clean - and with a lot less effort.
Very useful tool. Copes with all sorts of places i couldnt reach before. Suction power great, easy to clean and no cord to worry about. Battery could last a bit longer but doesnt cause too much problem. Wish id bought one ages ago ! Only complaint is that dyson didnt provide the wall fixings to hang tje bracket, stingy lot !!
It is early days at present but the wife is pleased with it like all Dysons but I am reluctant to comment fully yet as all other machines that we have owned have had so many bends in the "sucking" pipe that it did not take much to block it !. This one doesn't thank goodness but we will see if it performs well. 20 Mins max battery life , one heck of a lot less on turbo !! and then rest for 3 1/2 hours while it recharges.
