The Dyson V8 Animal vacuum is Cord-free. Hassle-free. The most powerful suction, Engineered for homes with pets and allergies.The Dyson V8 Animal is the same exact vacuum as Dyson V8 Absolute vacuum. The only difference between them is the fluffy attachment which comes with the Dyson V8 Absolute model and it is $100 more. 

The all powerful Dyson V8 Animal features 150% more brush bar power than the Dyson V6 cord-free vacuum. A powerful direct-drive motor pushes the brush bar deep into the carpet to remove ground-in dirt. Stiff nylon bristles remove ground-in dirt from carpets. Carbon fiber filaments remove fine dust from hard floors. Bristles cover its full width, allowing edge-to-edge cleaning.

The Dyson digital motor V8 creates the most powerful cordless vacuum. Whole machine filrationCaptures allergens and expels cleaner air than the air you breathe. Captures and retains dust using patented 2 Tier Radial™ cyclones. 15 cyclones, arranged across two tiers, generate powerful centrifugal forces to spin dust and dirt out of the airflow.  An efficient post motor filter captures allergens and bacteria. And because the entire system is engineered to be sealed, the air that leaves the machine is cleaner than the air you breathe.

The V8 reasons you will love the Dyson's new V8 cordless vacuum.

1. It’s got much better battery life

Aside from the motor, the major advance with the new Dyson V8 Absolute is the doubling of usable battery life – now 40 minutes instead of 20.

That’s enough to vacuum all but the largest homes, whereas you’d have to pace it around to clean decent-sized homes previously for fear of having to come back to the job later after a recharge.

A battery runtime indicator gives you a visual indication of cleaning time remaining.

2. The V8 motor is better than the V6 

Dyson has long extolled the virtues of its motors versus those of its competitors and having tested many of them, it’s clear that performance varies wildly. “Some cordless vacuum cleaners use small motors that can be weak, while others rely on heavy motors that can compromise versatility,” it says.

The V8 motor runs at 425W, compared to the previous generation V6 which ran at 350W. It spins up to 110,000rpm for powerful fade-free suction. It’s what Dyson has invested most money in developing over the last decade. The V8 is “the result of 18 months research and development and 500,000 hours of testing,” says James Dyson himself.

In 2016, Dyson says it will produce 8.8m digital motors – that’s approximately one every 3.5 seconds. 376 robots are used to assemble Dyson digital motors, as even the most dextrous human hand isn't precise enough: the smallest manufacturing tolerance is +/- 3 microns, which is approximately a quarter of the thickness of a human hair.

3. There’s a more powerful max mode

The max mode offers higher suction for more difficult tasks, and is activated with a redesigned switch in the V8. It also now provides 115AW of suction, compared to a max of 100AW on previous generation machines.

4. There’s something called a hygienic dirt ejector

The new V8 Absolute has a new bin emptying mechanism, called a hygienic dirt ejector. Put simply, this means you never have to touch the dirt as you bin it. As the bin is emptied, a rubber collar slides down the shroud (which itself was redesigned and now constructed from chemically-etched stainless steel, which has a smooth surface punctuated by approximately 15,000 holes measuring 0.4mm each), scraping dirt off. This drives out trapped dust and debris in a single action, with no need to touch the dirt, which you often do with other cleaners. The bin also has a larger capacity than the previous generation.

5. It only weighs 2.6kg

Ley components like the motor and battery are positioned near the hand to shift the centre of gravity and making the cleaning end of the vacuum much lighter. The overall weight isn’t different to the V6, so it’s just as manageable despite the new motor and other components like the larger bin.

Interesting fact: the polycarbonate clear bin is made from the same durable material as riot shields.

6. It can clean carpets and hard floors

A direct-drive cleaner head removes ground-in dirt and pet hair from carpeted floors and is 150 percent more powerful than the equivalent V6 accessory, while a soft roller cleaner head can remove large debris and fine dust from hard floors.

All tools feature a new quick release catch enabling you to change smoothly between tasks.

As standard, the Dyson V8 Absolute vacuum includes the direct-drive cleaner head and the soft roller cleaner head, in addition to the mini motorised tool, the combination tool and the crevice tool.

7. It’s got a charging station

Many rival products have a charger you have to unravel and plug in, but the V8 has a charging station instead.

8. It’s quieter than the V6

Up to 50 percent quieter, in fact. The air flow paths through the machine have been reworked, to reduce the noise associated with air moving fast through tight spaces. The post-motor filter has been redesigned, so it helps to muffle sound. And acoustic felt and closed cell foam inside the machine absorbs vibrations, also reducing noise.

2 Tier Radial™ cyclones15 cyclones, arranged across two tiers, work in parallel to increase airflow and capture fine dust.

  • Dyson cordless vacuums use patented cyclone technology, just like our corded machines. Powerful centrifugal forces spin dust and dirt out of the air and into the bin. 

    This patented cyclone technology combines with the Dyson digital motor and a re-engineered lithium ion battery to ensure that Dyson cordless machines provide powerful suction. From the moment your start cleaning, to the moment you finish.

Once you've used a Dyson, you'll never be satisfied with another vacuum. It's so powerful and yet so lightweight that vacuuming takes less time than you've ever imagined. Even for small individuals with limited strength, it's perfect.

This incredibly powerful vacuum is a revelation. It is extremely light but does a very thorough job of cleaning. I tested it on both wood and deep carpet. It cleaned both surfaces with ease. It is essentially a stick and is easy to carry anywhere in the house.

Its easy to use, ergonomic, ease of maintenance, and sucks! I can now vacuum places I couldn't get to before including padded chairs. The amount of dust, dirt and fur dumped is about the same as with the Dyson upright and the soft brush does a better job on my tile and stone floors without changing heads from my carpeted areas. Emptying and cleaning are also great.

So glad I invested in this product! I won't have another vacuum brand in my house after using this. The cordless feature is helpful and the vacuum is light enough to me to use for an extended period of time. If you leave this on the normal suction power it will definitely last the full 40 minutes of battery life which is long enough for me to get through the floors of my home and going over the living room furniture. The turning radius is impressive!

The first time I used it I was absolutely blown away. It works much better than expected. Simply fantastic. This thing is so easy to use that I like to vacuum more often now. The attachments go on and off so easily that it takes one second to change them out. The fact that it goes flat enables me to vacuum under my bed and entertainment center with ease. It's worth every penny.

It's worth every penny. We have 2 cats and a dog and this thing works extremely well. I use the soft roller on the hard wood and tile floors and it does a great job at picking up even the fine dust. I never feel like the floors are dirty after using it, it picks up everything. Even with all the pet hair I don't have any issues with it sticking to the roller. The carpet roller really does a great job at picking everything up and it doesn't shoot debris out of the back like some vacuums I have used.

The soft roller cleaner is the tool I use the most and it really works on my tile and hardwood floors. Cat hair, kitty litter…it picks up everything! The other tools are very useful as well . This vacuum is very ergonomically designed. Due its long extension, you avoid straining your back from constantly having to keep bending yourself as you're vacuuming.

Good continuous suction, light weight, easy to use and beautifully designed. If you have pets or kids and vacuum more than once a week this is for you. It lasts a long time, dumps the dirt way better than any other vacuum, you can hang it up nicely on the wall to charge.

I was pleasantly surprised how easy it is to put together and use this vacuum. I hardly read the instruction manual as there are clear labels on the vacuum about initial charging time etc. Great at picking up pet hair, crumbs, dust - I hope that if I do the regular maintenance this will last a long time.
