To get to these reviews, you need to scroll through the product description. So, you should have already seen the comparison chart. You can easily see what each model has compared to the others. But Dyson does not really explain to us what the difference is between a “motorized cleaner head” and the “direct-drive cleaner head” that the other three V6 models have. Here is the difference:
I have read that the “motorized” cleaner head on this model has “less power” than the other one. Running this cleaner head right next to the direct-drive cleaner head—over and over I will add; I have both and I did try to figure it out—it was really not apparent that one had more (or less) power than the other…..
In fact, the cleaner heads get the same amount of power from the main motor that sits up there next the cyclone and the battery. So, there must be something else going on in the cleaner heads themselves—‘cause it sure is not a difference in power from the power source. (The batteries are the same, the main units are the same, the wands are the same (with the same plug ins), and everything is interchangeable. It is strictly the head that creates the difference.
I’m thinking that it is all about how fast and how strongly the inside roller goes. Something in the more-expensive roller head makes it go faster and more forcefully. Well, that does not seem to make any difference in the way I vacuum…..
With both heads: I go the same speed pushing forward. I pick up the same amount of crud from my hard floors (kitchen, bathroom, hallways, entrance way, utility room) with either of them. The only thing I did notice: The more expensive roller cleaner head picks up more pile from my carpets. I don’t particularly consider that a good thing.
I find suction to be the same on all the V6 models.
About the size of this cleaning head (compared to the direct-drive head): It is the same total width. It has a lower profile (by about ¼”). Working width of the roller is about ½” less. The roller itself has a smaller diameter, but four lines of brush bristles. The direct-drive head has a much larger diameter roller, but three lines of brush bristles.
And, if you have big hairy dogs—and I mean BIG dogs, with LOTS of hair—and if you are looking for a vacuum to pick up all that hair, this stick vacuum will discourage and disappoint you! It has a small dirt cup. It can fill up with animal hair and carpet pile in minutes.
In general these Dyson cordless stick vacuums are not meant to be your only vacuum--unless you are using it in a tiny apartment or dorm room or small office. It is for touch-ups, or individual rooms, or a certain type of room. While it can clean both bare floors, rugs, hard-to-access spaces, high-up spots and even blinds, curtains, upholstered furniture, plus handle dusting duties, this is not a large capacity vacuum. And it does not work for more than 20 minutes at a time. And it is surely not suited for folks who tackle their vacuuming chores only once-a-month.
Actually, let me take back that last statement: If you are somewhat lackadaisical about your vacuuming and dusting chores, this machine may just turn you into a cleaning fool. You just need to get over that initial hump of emptying the dirt cup constantly until you get your rooms back under control. Because this little machine has more suction power than anything you’ve ever witnessed. It will find dirt and dust that you had no clue was sitting there next to you or settled in under your feet.
Once you get rid of all the dirt that your previous vacuums left behind, you might just find that this fairly light-weight, easy-to-control-with-one-hand stick vacuum is a joy to use in conjunction with your big upright or canister vacuum. I use this in my kitchen, hallways, utility room and bathrooms. I also use it in all the other rooms to get under furniture and tight places. I also use it with its attachments—much easier than using the attachments on my big vacuum.
I did comparisons between three of these V6 models: There is no difference in power or suction. Nor is there a difference in the battery—same working time, same re-charge time (about four hours). You get the same size cyclone unit and dirt cup on all four models. You do not get a crevice tool, but you do get the combination brush tool. You do NOT get the extra filter on the air expelled after passing through the unit (that’s the top-of-the-line model). You do NOT get the other two motorized heads, one for animal fur on upholstery and one for clinging dust under furniture sitting on hardwood floors. You do not get the simple little soft dusting brush either.
NOTE: While these motorized heads work well on carpeting, they may work too well on your carpets. The powerful suction on this vacuum will definitely pull up pile on inexpensive carpeting where the pile is glued and not knotted. Dysons also pull up pile from fine, expensive rugs—I notice it happening on some of my newer, thicker pile Oriental rugs. If you realize that your dirt cup fills up in a minute or two while working on rugs, your pile is coming up along with the dirt. Rug fibers in the dirt cup and often hard to dislodge. I end up using a butter knife to work up around the area where the cyclone unit lives inside the dirt cup.
To clean the motorized rotating head, I disconnect and remove it and vacuum it without the wand attached.
My only complaint is this: I wish the handle, where the hand grips it, was a different type of plastic: My hand sweats because the unit does give off some heat. Then my fingers slide and lose some control on the hard, shiny, slippery plastic.
If you have an older Dyson cordless stick vac (like I do) and are considering a new one, these new digital motor V6 models are definitely an upgrade. (I’ll try to be short with this, but if you need more detailed info, drop me an email (address is on my Profile Page) or leave a comment below—I’ll get back to you.) Differences between the older DC-35 and these new digital motor V6 models: The V6 models have: A bigger cyclone, but same size dirt cup; definitely more suction power from a much more powerful and digital motor (and are a bit louder); a longer aluminum pole, by a little more than an inch; a more stable handle/less play in the handle (less wiggly); a more stable battery (no longer easily detachable); a much wider cleaner head(s) re-designed attachment tools, and it is much easier to change click-on/off the attachment tools.
When I first received this vacuum, I loved it. It did a great job on my hardwood floors and area rugs, and though the charge was short, it was usually enough to let me get through my small townhouse. However, about six months in, the motorized brush bar stopped turning. I checked for clogs, cleaned it thoroughly, read online troubleshooting guides, and still wouldn't work. No problem, I thought. One of the reasons I chose this vacuum was for its two year warranty. What a surprise then to talk to customer service and find out this was considered "normal wear and tear". I asked the representative if they were saying they only intended their vacuum to work for six months, but all they said was they could send me a new motor head as a "one time courtesy".
Once I received the new attachment, the vacuum once again worked perfectly. I resolved to be vigilant, emptying the canister and cleaning the brush bar after every room to prevent any buildup of dust or hair. However, six months later, just like clockwork, I start experiencing the exact same problems. It seems that nothing prevents hair from getting wrapped around the brush motor, so despite how clean you keep the machine, eventually hair or particles will find their way into the head and cause the bar to stop turning. And there's no way to get into the machine to clean it out.
I'm beyond frustrated, and I will never again buy a Dyson product!
Many fail to remember that cordless vac's are not intended to be used to clean the entire house, these are for quick everyday cleanups such as kitty litter, pet dander, outdoor debris trapped on shoes, dust...etc. I have 2 dogs and 2 cats so my kitchen and utility room where they frequent needs daily attention making a cordless vac practically a requirement as far as time and convenience goes.
>Suction is good, better than most others and on par with the Hoover Linx and with "Max" turned on, suction is fantastic and on par with most bulky corded vac's.
>Lighter than most at around 5 lbs, design and weight distribution makes it great for cleaning up high
>Dock station makes it really quick and convenient to stow away and get charged up.
>Dyson didn't lie, the charging time, features...etc all seems to be accurate based on my real world use or at least close enough that I didn't notice.
>Doesn't feel cheap.
>Brush roller is super easy to change and clean, just unlock the one side and pull it out.
>Design is amazing for stairs and sofa's unlike vac's with non motorized brushes (rotates by suction only)
Everything was well thought out, it's quick to swap accessories, if hair clogs up the roller you can quickly pull it out and put it back in. No screws to undo like most every other vac. Everything about this vacuum is just so quick and convenient. Many people don't like the fact that "Max" mode only has 5 minutes of battery life. That sounds short but really for quick or daily cleaning it's plenty. I can do my utility and kitchen rooms with it if I wanted to but normal mode does fine. Run your own vacuum for 5 minutes and see what you get done and that will be a good indication of what you'll get with max mode BUT that's intended for more special situations, normal mode does give a solid 20 or so minutes and the suction is still good enough to take care of daily cleanings. Now if you tend to wait a month or so and then obviously you should buy a corded vac because there will be too much debris and slow down your ability to vac your entire room.
>Battery is not changeable. I deducted 1 star because of this.
>Shaggy rugs like my bathroom rug, binds up the brush roller which stops the power to save battery. This works more for hard floors or shallow carpets so If you have thick carpets you might not want this or any cordless that doesn't have adjustable height.
