Product Comparison: Dyson V6 MotorHead vs Dyson V6 Animal
- Motor Head aggressively picks up dirt from carpets and rugs as it spins deep to the base, max power mode is powerful, well balanced for one handed operation.
- When in the MAX setting, it does pick up well, except for the long hairs that get stuck.
- The cordless part of it contributes to the maneuvering very well.
- The ball aspect of it allows to maneuver it pretty much every nook and corner of the house, behind every tight spot imaginable.
- It is bag-less so no headache there.
- Worked great until I had an issue with the filter. For some reason it stopped working and would only pulse unless I took the filter out - which defeats the purpose.
- Washable filter, so it's good for people with allergies.
- Obviously, it’s nice that it’s cordless. You can get around the whole house without have to unplug and move it to a closer location.
- The cordless system is fantastic!
- Suction is amazing, almost as good as my Dyson Ball Animal vacuum, and I have not seen any decrease in suction so far.
- The main vacuum attachment (the largest head) is still so small. You spend more time covering all of the spots.
- Very light, I thought the trigger would be tiresome but it's not.
- Light and portable and easy to use.
- This vacuum is super light weight and gets into corners and swivels well, I love that!
- I love having a go-to, small cordless vacuum for quick messes.
- Being as light weight as it is, I can carry it around so easily. Even my 5 year old can clean up his mean just fine.
- Its quite heavy on my wrist when using it for a few mins.
- Light, agile, and powerfull.
- Light, maneuverable, Extreme sucking power, easy to clean.
- Very easy to use and light weight.
- It is very light weight and only requires 1 hand to use.
- It even comes with a wall mount so that it is always charging when not in use.
- Powered vacuum head tilts and turns easily in every direction.
- Comes with a wall mountable combo hanging and charging station.
- It works well on hard floors and dense low pile carpet on Max mode.
- Messy to empty. Dust gets everywhere. And the bin is really small. So you will be emptying it a lot. And dust gets stuck in all the corners.
- My biggest complaint is that the holding container is too small. If you let it fill past the line it will clog and stop working.
- Having to continually hold the button down, while going around my house hitting up all the edges and baseboards can be tiresome.
- Dyson's easy accessory latches make changing out attachments easy and fast.
- The bristles seriously get so much dirt and dust out of the carpet. We have fairly long carpeting and even the parts in the house that have been pressed down so much they’re stuck like that, the bristles still manage to somewhat get in there.
- It comes with a lot of attachments and can be stored easier than an upright vacuum.
- The attachments included are perfect for my needs; the dusting attachments has made my life so much easier!
- Dust bin opens from the bottom (Huge flaw for the Animal version of this since hair gets stuck and is impossible to get out.)
- Not collapsible or extendable. It has one extension tube and you either hook it up or take it completely off.
- The wall holder/ charging station does not have enough holders for the four attachments included forcing me to create a storage place/ tote for the extra attachments.
- Pretty powerful with two different power settings.
- It's cordless and holds its charge for a decent amount of time and doesn't take too long to charge back up.
- Battery life remaining indicator kicks in too close to flat battery, Motor Head has trouble with larger pieces of debris, holding down power trigger gets tiring for long sessions.
- Poor battery life. We're talking 5 min on high and something like 20 on low. I found myself needing to recharge it halfway through cleaning on many occasions. And a 3hr charge time.
- The battery life at full power (pressing the blue button by the handle) is barely 10 minutes.
- Has decent Power, even comes with a boost mode (which is most likely what you will always have it on).
- The suction strength compared to prior dyson models is amazing.
- Run time is actually only supposed to last around 8 mins per charge. (Instructions actually rate this at 8, I have gotten more time than that but not much more)
- The battery dies after a few minutes. I have a dog and kids and vacuum at least every other day, so it’s not a big issue. But I wouldn’t be able to do the entire house on one charge.
- Battery life is not that long, on average (without using the max power feature) I can go about 10-20 minutes depending on what attachment I am using.
