Dyson V8 Animal


Our fur-moulting, muddy-pawed companions have always necessitated the best in vacuum cleaner technology for the home. Big motors, powerful suction, dedicated tools and floor-heads with rotating brush bars are a must. So can Dyson's V8 Animal cordless...

Good Vacuum if you dont have the space


Great suction and perfect if you don't have the space for a normal upright. Was a bit shocked that it only lasts 7 minutes on high suction though! why wouldn't you want to use anything but high??

So much easier without a cord and the suction is plenty enough to pick up dust. much easier than a corded on the stairs. The battery lasts long enough to do my 4 bedroom house. I don't use my corded vacuum anymore. Only negative a little on the pricey...
