The Dyson V8 Animal cord-free vacuum is engineered for homes with pets. A direct-drive cleaner head sucks up pet hair and ground in-dirt across both carpets and hard floors. Powered by the Dyson digital motor V8, it generates even more suction than its predecessor and, with whole machine filtration, it captures pet allergens and expels cleaner air than the air you breathe. Thanks to a revolutionary cord-free format, it also transforms for easy cleaning up high and into a handheld for quick cleans close at hand with an extra tool for tougher tasks.

Dyson V8 Animal Vacuum Cleaner | 164537-01 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Daily hoovering pain obliterated by world class engineering. Just into my third week using my new Dyson V8 Animal and its passed and indeed surpassed every challenge I`ve thrown at it. A great set of attachments are complemented by super engineering allowing every part to reassuringly click into place and perform perfectly. Great with pet hair (and I have loads having a Golden Retriever), great on stairs, super handy for the car and all stores neatly on its recharging station.

Date published: 2017-03-22
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great little 'hoover', but I think this is still overpriced OK, so, first of all, this is expensive. It does not matter what angle I am looking at, it is expensive. It came with lot's of different heads, which is good, but would be nice to have a head for a hard floor and another one for the carpet, rather only one for the carpet - I guess it would still make a profit. Just make it clear I do not use this to clean the whole house, it is used only an about 35 squere meter area where I pick up the dog hair/fur from a mixture of hard floor and carpets. For the lighter dust/dog hair/fur, it is OK on normal suction - batteries last long in this mode. When I have to use it in max suction mode, which is far better/quicker, than the normal, the batteries die quick (after about 8-10 minutes, as the manufacturer states) and the device is heating up. Maintenance is handy as no dust bag or so, however, to avoid blowing 'dog smell' around the house I clean the dust tank with Dettol surface cleaner once a week. (If you do this make sure before you lock back the latch the tank it is dry!) I rinse the filter at the same time as well, but it is very slow to dry out, probably a spare one would be nice in the box (especially for this price). As a summary, buy this only if you want to keep reasonably clean a small area otherwise this is still not the technology that you want - being an early adopter is an expensive thing, so I guess I pay for the next generation better performing cable-less 'hoover's, your welcome.
