Can anyone help an indecisive gal choose which cordless v6 Dyson is the most appropriate for us??
I'm sat between the v6 animal and the v6 total clean. (don't like hard floor head on absolute) I don't really want to push up to the v8 because of the price difference.
We've 5 children and 2 dogs. I want it to spot clean the house but be able to cope with our sizeable family and pick up after furry woofers. We've also got a big lwb transporter van to cart said family about and this is my main purchase reason. I never have the time or the inclination to drag out extension cords, park the van up on the drive and drag the big old Dyson out to clean it all out. (see how laborious I made that sound)
Any advice anyone can impart would be gratefully received!!

honestly I wouldn't get a cordless, they run out of charge very quickly I can't even get round my 2 bed house before it running out (no pets 2 kids) very frustrating. Miss my Henry hoover!

I'd probably recommend the Animal in that case - it sounds perfect to your needs!
I recently picked up the V6 Absolute and am seriously impressed with the amount of muck it's been lifting from the carpets. You do have to adjust slightly how you vacuum - I would often do the whole house in one go - but now find that I'll break it down a little and do a couple of rooms each night.

It does need emptied pretty regularly, but I do enjoy the extra mobility it gives!

GTech all the way. My wife has had most makes of vacuum cleaners, Dyson, Panasonic, Miele etc & the GTech is the best she has had. The charge does the house 3 times over so no problem with it running out. So light as well.

we just got the airram with 3 kids under 5 its a god send, they now have a pet version which is better at dealing with fur etc... wouldnt get another dyson even if its better is it £200 better i doubt it... they were £150 in argos about a week ago

What is the clean up like ?

I have always had a dyson. My upright corded was faultless. Loved it. Changed it for the corded cylinder and I hate how it works. Makes hard work of hoovering in my opinion compared to the upright and doesn't pick up as well.

Have considered the Gtech. But wasn't sure how it picks up and manoeuvres.

I did the same... upright dyson to dyson cylinder, and the cylinder is utterly rubbish :(
#7
Dysons really are standard vacuums. I recommend numatic or g-tech.

I have the V6 Animal with 2 kids and 3 dogs/2cats! It does me perfect. Don't expect to do a full house clean with it though. For me it was to keep on top of cleaning which usually means using for 10 minutes to quickly go over the living room or car and its perfect for that. You have to use it more often but for a shorter time than a traditional vacuum but my 'big dyson' hasn't been used since I got the v6

My only issue with the airram is that I can't see that it can become smaller for cleaning the car out or doing the stairs??
That's what was pointing me towards the Dyson because my very first want was a black and decker dustbuster but was warned off and recommended the v6 cordless but at £150, though ti may as well pay the extra £50 and get the full vac (_;)

Nice of your "wife" to take ownership of such a mundane piece of household appliances . Hoping you take ownership of the lawn mower , drills , TVs , skybox, all the glamour stuff :)

We bought the two Gtech together when they had one of there offers. The little one is fantastic.

My wife loves using her Gtech. I would have no problem using it. I do most of the cooking & most of the DIY. My wife is the Sky surfer in our house.

Have a look on which website,I've recently bought a Bosch,its excellent

For that size of family with animals, you'll need a corded vacuum such as a Henry and a rechargeable spot cleaner. We have a Henry and a Bosch Athlet. Henry was purchased after Athlet runs out of power after the ground floor! Got rid of the stand up Dyson as it was not good. Our local car cleaner does inside and out for £6.
#15
We have a large dog and the animal is great. Its considerably cheaper now than when I purchased it.
#16
For presumably a 3 bedroom + house with 5 kids and animals .... you really are going to need corded unless Dysons can run for an hour on a single charge.. ...

weve still got a functioning 7 year old dyson animal upright for 'the full works' im really thinking just for spot cleaning and the van. ill take a look at the bosch, thank you :)

edit - bosch is only an upright, still cant use it for all the van :(

indeed. I gave up cleaning my cars some years ago. On a time/material v cost basis, your local Eastern European staffed car cleaning service may work out better!

For quick floor cleaning, the Athlet is good just for a quick spin, useless for cars and difficult spots. A rechargeable Dyson would be ideal.

Like I'd let numbnuts loose on my makita.
