A direct-drive cleaner head sucks up pet hair and ground-in dirt across all floors, with an extra tool for tougher tasks. It also captures pet allergens thanks to whole machine filtration – expelling cleaner air than the air you breathe.
Powerful suction provided by the Dyson digital V8 motor generates more suction than any other cordless vacuum with up to 40 minutes of fade-free suction. It also has more runtime to clean even further along with easier emptying and updated tools.
The body of the V8 cleaner, with its pistol grip and trigger on/off switch, feels comfortable in the hand. The weight of the batteries below the wrist help to balance the motor above, and the bin in front. The main filter pulls straight out of the top of the cyclone area and a second post-motor filter can be found at the rear. The combination is said to capture particles down to 3 microns. Both filters can be easily removed for washing.
The Direct Drive head is the key for both general and pet-hair cleaning. It’s powered by a small motor inside the brush bar, creating a full-width head that promises edge-to-edge cleaning. The brush bar has a row of stiff nylon bristles designed to beat and clean carpets, plus a row of carbon filaments that pick up fine dust from hard floors.
If you’re a pet owner, then consider a Dyson V8 for its outstanding cleaning performance and superb cordless versatility.
