The new Dyson V6 Cordless vacuums may look like spiffed up versions of the older models, but they aren’t. The new Dyson V6 range is far and away better than the earlier models. They’re far and away better than other stick vacuums. In fact, Dyson V6 cordless vacuums with the new direct-drive motorhead – the V6 Absolute, V6 Animal and V6 Motorhead – are among the best products we sell.
The new Dyson V6 vacuums have all the features and extras you’d expect from a Dyson cordless. They are lightweight, with the center of gravity towards the grip for easy cleaning from floor to ceiling. The digital motor generates suction that puts Dyson cordless vacuums in a class by themselves. The two-tier arrangement of 15 cyclones increase airflow and capture the more fine dust than earlier models.
But it’s that direct-drive cleaner head that makes these machines special. It makes them the first stick vacuums that clean all types of flooring well, both smooth floors and carpets. And not just smooth floors, but into the crevices of hardwood, stone and tile floors. And not just low-pile carpets, but the most difficult carpets, like flokatti, shag and frisee.
The direct-drive cleaner head provides 75% more brush bar power than the motorized cleaner head of the base Dyson V6 cordless vacuum, and better performance than many standard uprights. For carpets, its stiff nylon bristles drive deeper into pile, removing ground-in dirt other stick vacuums can’t reach. For hard floors, there are soft carbon fiber filaments that pick up the fine dust that other stick vacs leave behind.
If you just want a cordless stick vacuum with the cleaning performance of the direct-drive cleaner head, but don’t need much else, then the Dyson V6 Motorhead will be your choice. It comes with a crevice tool and Dyson’s combination tool with dusting brush and will meet most typical cleaning needs
If you have pets or want to use the Dyson V6 to clean furniture or stairs, you’ll want to consider the Dyson V6 Animal. It has the basic tools plus a mini motorized tool designed for vacuuming pet hair, upholstery, stairs and other small, tight spaces.
If you want a HEPA stick vacuum or need to protect delicate finishes on your hardwood floors, look at the Dyson V6 Absolute. It’s Dyson’s only HEPA cordless stick vacuum. The Dyson V6 Absolute includes the mini motorized head that comes with the V6 Animal, and also Dyson’s new Fluffy soft cleaner head.
The Fluffy cleaner header was designed especially for hardwood floors. It’s covered in soft woven nylon, with rows of anti-static carbon fiber filaments that pick up fine dust and large debris pick-up simultaneously. With the Fluffy, the direct-drive cleaner head and the mini motorized tool, the Dyson V6 Absolute cordless vacuum could be the only vacuum you’ll need for spaces of 1,000 sq. ft or less.
