Obviously, Dyson V7 Animal is positioned between Dyson V7 Motorhead (featuring ‘only’) Combination Tool, Crevice Tool, Direct Drive Cleaner Head) and Dyson V7 Absolute models. They are all powered using power fade-free lithium-ion batteries, providing different operating times for all vacuums. Our Test Labs compare features and prices on a range of products.
If you want the cheapest Dyson vacuum included in this review, opt for the Dyson V8 Animal. But if your goal is to find an excellent product that you won’t have to empty frequently and one that will gather debris with high suction power, you should opt for the Dyson V11 line. When we first started reviewing cordless vacuums, we didn’t even consider the digital screen a critical feature.
With both vacuums having the same design, the size difference isn’t very much. I like this tool because it can clean debris of different sizes – fine or large dirt particles thanks to bissell crosswave cordless the ample clearance. To summarize, here’s the list of features that both these vacuums have in common. There isn’t much of a difference when it comes to surface pick up for both.
A trigger controls the power, and in effect, the suction, making this device fairly easy to use. It doesn’t have a power switch; it’s always on and ready to go, assuming the battery pack is affixed and it’s charged enough to work. You simply pull the trigger – hold it to start the suction, and release it to stop.
If you have damaged, misused or otherwise failed to take reasonable care of the goods we will not be able to accept the return. While its 40-minute run time isn’t as impressive as that of the Dyson, it’s sufficient for most houses, while the Anti Hair dyson robot vacuum Wrap Technology ensures that your pets won’t get it in a tangle. Admittedly the Shark Anti Hair Wrap isn’t as elegantly designed as the sleek Dyson V11, but with an RRP of £350, the £160 discount represents a much bigger price slash – more than 45%.
Thankfully, both the V8 and V11 are lightweight and easy to store. Another reason this can be a determining factor is that many people don’t like coming into contact with dust, dirt, and debris. If you’re grossed out each time you empty a dustbin, you should find a vacuum that you’ll empty less often. You might be more interested in lighter cordless vacuums, such as the Dreame V11 that weighs 1,6 kg, or the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead that weighs 2,5 kg. If you have pets in your house, the might be suitable for you because it has strong suction power that can easily pick up large chunks of debris and fine particles, such as pet hairs. I am mighty impressed with the suction power of the Dyson digital motor V11.
The Dyson V11 has the longest run time of all the Dysons in our tests, at more than 43 minutes, second only to the run time of the Bissell Air Ram, highlighted below. But like many stick vacs, it takes a full 4 hours to recharge. At 6.6 pounds, it’s a pound heavier than the Dyson V8 but is still lighter than many stick vacs from other brands. We assessed how well it performs its primary job of cleaning carpet and bare floors, getting into corners, keeping up with a shedding pet, and doing it all without waking the baby.
