While Dyson continues to introduce new technology to improve its devices, the Dyson v8 Animal is still a popular choice. It’s our top choice because it combines powerful suction with a more affordable price tag (compared to other Dyson models). It’s also very easy to assemble as well as take apart and store in a closet or laundry room. Mutlow says, “A good vacuum should do four things well: suck the dust off the floor, lock it in, and expel clean air. Also make sure it doesn’t lose suction.” This vacuum checks all those boxes.
This model’s motorized cleaning head and brush bar suck up dirt, dander, hair and other debris from carpets and carpet fibers to give you a deep clean. It pairs stiff nylon bristles with up to 115AW of suction to deep clean even shag carpets or rugs. While the Dyson Omni-glide is our choice for hardwood floors, the v8 Animal also performs well on hard surfaces, making it a great choice for anyone with multiple floor types in their home.
As a cordless stick vacuum, this one is also easy to use, making it ideal for routine maintenance or a quick clean before company arrives. It has a built-in rechargeable battery that provides 40 minutes of run time in standard mode. Note that the maximum mode provides more power, but reduces battery life to less than 10 minutes. (Keep it for spot cleaning, especially dirty areas.) Like many Dyson cordless vacuum models, we don’t like that you have to hold down the trigger for the entire time you’re vacuuming. This not-super-intuitive feature leads us to believe it’s not a good choice for larger houses.
In typical Dyson fashion, the vacuum is amazingly designed with a wall mount so you can hang it up when not in use. We’re sure you’ll enjoy using this Dyson vacuum every day.
