Pros and cons

According to our vacuum expert
  • Thanks to the accessories, you can easily transform the stick vacuum to a powerful handheld vacuum.
  • The V8 motor allows for 25-40 minutes of uninterrupted vacuuming; if you use the powerful turbo mode, the battery lasts 7 minutes.
  • With a noise level of 82 decibels, this stick vacuum is very loud.
  • The powerful turbo mode requires a lot of battery power; it will only last 7 minutes.

Description

Thanks to the multi-surface brush, you can use the Dyson V8 Motorhead on both hard floors and low-pile carpet. If you're cleaning a more coarse carpet, we recommend you switch to the turbo mode. This provides a bit more suction power, so the dirt disappears faster. In addition, you receive a crevice tool and a 2-in-1 accessory. With these attachments, you can turn the stick vacuum into a powerful handheld vacuum. This is useful when there's still crumbs from last night's chips on the couch. This stick vacuum is part of the V8 series. That means it has a V8 motor. This lets you vacuum the floor for about 25 minutes. If you use it as a handheld vacuum, the battery even lasts 40 minutes.

Hygienic and easy to empty
Dyson has gone all-out to make sure that the V8 is user-friendly. As a result, emptying the dust cup of the Dyson V8 isn't a dusty chore anymore. If you pull the red lever on the motor unit, the flap at the bottom of the dust cup opens. Make sure you do this over the trash can, or you'll have to vacuum again.

The digital V8 motor
The digital motor of the V8 spins with a speed of 110.000 rotations per minute. This is thanks to the digital pulse technology. With this smart technology, the V8 produces a constant suction, so you never have to worry that you're short on suction power.

Battery
The battery of the V8 can store a lot of energy and, more importantly, release this quickly as well. This way, the vacuum retains its suction power and a fully-charged battery lets you vacuum for up to 40 minutes at the lowest setting.

    Dyson, the design and ease of use are always top notch

    • suction power
    • Battery has more than enough capacity
    • The different brushes, for hard and soft floors
    • The crevice tool, illuminated. read on
    • Lots of accessories
    • My girlfriend is disappointed

    I have a Dyson DC62, I believe it has lasted 7 years with me. He just doesn't want to break down, doesn't want to stop his activities. I'm going to give him a quieter life elsewhere in my house now. That's…..because of a friend. He bought a Dyson V8 Absolute +. Well, only that name and the addition “+” (from plus, even more) piqued my interest. Not to mention excitement.

    The illuminated crevice tool not only sounds good but is extremely handy. If you vacuum the baseboards, you never actually see what you're doing, you quickly conclude that there is nothing to vacuum. But….with the lighting on that accessory…. Not a superfluous luxury to “take” those skirting boards with you. A really handy addition.

    The motorized mini brush is almost an even better addition. Instead of helping the beautiful carpet on the stairs to the ceilings with a plastic attachment, the mini brush rolls pleasantly over the angular steps. How do you get there; very nice!

    And then emptying the dust container which was a bit of a challenge. It did work, but with a certain risk. Usually it happened to me that I tried to empty that bin in a big cloud of dust outside (!) when the wind was just blowing my way. Unfortunate. But that too has been updated. You can now handle the emptying process even indoors without risk. Awesome.

    The sound the V8 Absolute+ makes is the sound of a vacuum cleaner having a good time. In any case, less noise than the old one, and that was fine with me. The wall charger has remained the same so drilling holes again is not necessary unless you move because of that beautiful new machine. New Dyson, new house they say.

    I really just wanted to say that I already loved that friend, moving in with her because of that Dyson V8 Absolutely + she thought it was a good idea, good excuse. However, I wanted a copy entirely for myself. So purchased and immediately put into use. Awesome!

    Very good choice
    • Turbo mode, great for carpet dog hair and sand
    • Many attachments
    • You grab it much faster and it's gone in no time
    • No vacuum cleaner bag, easy to empty
    • Cordless, turn it into a petty thief, ideal for car
    • 7 min turbo I think is a bit short, then your battery is exhausted, on the normal position it also sucks very well so actually a matter of time allocation

    We have a Golden Retriever who sheds a lot and likes to dive in mud puddles, so he is ideal for sand hairs, much more results than with a regular vacuum cleaner and then of course no vacuum cleaner bag

    Good quality

    Bought a cheap cordless vacuum cleaner last year and not satisfied at all. So I hesitated to try another one, but I am very happy with the result.
