Brilliant machine, the only downfall I got carried away with my cleaning and the battery just died. I have now got it sorted and do a room a day and its splits the cleaning up also. It says 20 mins so time must fly.
After putting up with cheaper makes of vacuum cleaner for the past year (and Ive bought 3 in that time) I decided to spend a little more and go back to a trusty Dyson. I am not disappointed. Never realised how much dust and animal hair was still left behind until I bought the V6 animal .... my carpets look new again :)
OMG! I've actually become obsessed with vacuuming since getting this Dyson! I thought my carpets were clean, turns out there's full of dust still from a wall replacement that was done in my flat months ago.
It picks up so much more than any other vacuum I've ever used. I love it!
Bought a V6 Animal for my Dad who is 87 , has a bad hip, 3 types of cancer, diabetes -& a bad heart,but he's independent & wants to do everything.This vacuum allows him to do just that. He can clean the stairs in safety , as no cord to trip over & no heavy vacuum to pull along or pick up. This is really lightweight & does a brilliant job & the fact that the charge lasts for about 20 minutes is fine. Best buy for him ever !
It's ok, Went for the cordless one as I'm always tripping over cord and get fed up unplugging and plugging in different rooms. I would t say it's fantastic but it does the job. What I dont like is it runs out of power too quickly and if you have it on for a while an amber light comes on and it doesn't work until it cooled down. If I had the choice now I probably would put that money to good use and carry on tripping up with my old one.
This is my third dyson vacuum but my first cordless make. As expected,it is very efficient and extremely light to manoeuvre and carry. The only reason I haven't scored it excellent is that the dust collection bin is rather small and requires emptying every time it is used.
This is a great vacuum for a small house,we have changed the way we vacuum due to the ease of use.it would be a good idea if you could purchase a larger bin to collect dirt so that you did not constantly have to empty,and it would be nice in the future that you could have 2 batteries to use ..
This latest model with the high performance motor shows what can be achieved with a rechargeable vacuum. It is powerful to such a degree that the comment on the box that it lifts as much as a plug in is absolutely correct.
The V6 animal is so light and portable it makes vacuuming so easy that family members who would not normally clean are more than happy to do it! The motorised head means that the carpets and floors get a good deep down clean and pet hair gets picked up without a problem.(we have a red setter and a cat) I thought that my carpets were quite clean until I saw the amount of dust and hair picked up at the first use! I would highly recommend it.
This is one of the best I have used. Its powerful suction picks up everything. Small and very lightweight so easy and versatile. Takes me minutes to do the stairs where as before I struggled with a heavy dyson 04 with the cord. one down side would be only 20 mins for each charge but I just charge it then carry on. I have 2 children and its so easy to take off of the wall mounted bracket and hover just about anything. Excellent product!
The vac is very powerful and I love the handheld device for stairs and furniture, our only criticism would be that the charge could do with lasting longer - 40 mins would be great - to give time to do stairs and rest of house. The dust compartment could also be bigger - but this just shows how much it is picking up! These are only minor things I would give it 8/10. Best vac I have had.
We bought our Dyson v6 animal 1 year ago. A truly marvellous bit of kit. Good suction, lightweight and easy to use. But after about 8 months things started to go wrong. We've had replaced, at no cost to us, new head , new charger , new barrel. Machine has worked okay but now the faults have started again Machine shown flashing red light.
We have 2 dogs that shed ALOT and the v6 animal does a fantastic job at collecting all those pesky hairs. We didn't realise how much dog hair was trapped in our carpets until we used the v6 for the first time, the difference was incredible. Light and powerful the v6 animal also makes vacuuming the stairs a breeze, which is great for my back. A definite thumbs up.
