Great product, battery works well and suction is good

published

We had a V6 animal for 4 years and it was time for an upgrade so we bought V11 and we love it. Works perfect and suction is good. It adopts with different surfaces automatically and the suction changes accordingly.

Very good on carpet very bad on tiles

published

Good unit
Very good build quality
But over $1000 and cant do tiles poor engineering . Unfortinly this is where the unit fails. Tile flooring is this machines enemy. We have a long hair cat and does a out standing job getting cat hair on carpets but fails on tiles.
Oval all its a good unit, provided your on carpet.

Simply perfect! Worth every penny

published

Bought Dyson V11 Absolute during 2019 Black Friday sales and can tell you it is worth every penny. Extremely easy to use, sleekly designed, powerful, reasonably quiet and much more.
I used it on tiled and carpeted floor as well as rug for all kinds of mess a 2-year-old can possibly make and the outcome was brilliant!
Battery life is excellent as I used it on Eco Mode for 36 minutes and the battery was still well above half. It is so easy to use that we clean the whole house 3 times more frequent than before.

Purchased in December 2019 at Bing Lee Online store for $888.00.

Expensive but very good

published

Let’s be honest, it is quite expensive and the filter at the rear requires regular cleaning
I still however stand behind the quality of the appliance and charge is more then enough for the regular home
The dog doesn’t mind using the small head on him too which sort of combines brushing and hair pickup

Totally, totally worth every cent.

published

Best upright vacuum ever! I have floorboards and carpet and use it on both without a problem. Totally, totally worth every cent. Picks up every speck of dirt, fluff and hair. Hides easily away between use in small hall cupboard and is always ready for action. An absolute winner.

It’s ok. Not really worth the money.

published

We have vinyl, hardwood and carpet flooring in our home. I bought this in hopes of making it easier to clean up after my two toddlers, with the ease of not having to lug around a big vacuum plugged into the wall.
I find it extremely heavy, and you have to hold the lever on while you’re vacuuming, I liken it to holding a petrol pump on. I get cramps in my hand after two mins of vacuuming.
When on carpet mode it’s so powerful it just pulls the rug inside it but doesn’t actually pick up the crumbs.
I would prefer to use my $300 Electrolux. Not a fan.

We have tiles and floorboards. It performs great but does need frequent cleaning on the spinners. Battery life is fairly good for a small vacuum. Also very lightweight and easy to manoeuvre.

Good product

Strong vacuum, well engineered. Using it an engineered floors mainly as its not super practical on my wooden carpeted areas given back capacity. A bit pricey for what it is but best in class from previous experience.

Dissapointing poor design

published

Worked ok in store but lousy at home with pet hair on our vinyl flooring. Forward sweep misses 30% of debris and backward sweep piles the missed debris in a heap behind head! So you think ill just lift the head over the debris heap to suck it up but..the spinning head then contacts the debris and flings it over the floor behind the cleaner!
It works better on carpet due to the uneven surface texture.
Very disappointed, my home is mostly vinyl floors and my dogs are moulting like no tomorrow and im stuck with $1100 of vac cleaner that only works 70% effective one direction .

Questions & Answers

Kirsty P.

Kirsty P.asked

Curious to why the V11 standing dock is unable to hold all the tools on the stand. What tool is suitable for the stand? I’ve found the smaller motorised head does not fit. When connecting the brush tools the brushes touch the stands pole which presses on the bristles alas the bristles get bent. Is this normal? Is it also normal for the stand to feel unsteady and if not what can be done to rectify this?

Hi, does anyone have an absolutely filthy filter EVEN BEFORE they use their vacuum? For example, when I wash the filter, and wait 24 hours and then put the filter back in, its filthy straight away. Without even vacuuming again! Anyone else?

Hi Soph. It actually seems that way to me!! I wash the filter (As you do) - Leave it for 24 hours overnight (Same as you) and then use it for a VERY short time - and the filter is filthy. My last Dyson only needed the filter cleaned every 6 months or so. This one I basically HAVE to clean after each use - even if I had only used it for a very short period of time!! Don't bother sending it back for Service under Warranty - they will only change the filter - then send it back to you!!

Soph
Soph

I agree, my last Dyson filter I only changed once a year or something! This is crazy and I have no time for this. So what did you do to fix it?

Dyson
Dyson Team ..Dyson

This certainly isn't normal nor what we would expect. The filter should not be dirty as soon as you install it, or after a short period.

We would kindly ask you to forward your details to [email protected] and we will be happy to help.

Kerry Hollyasked

I have the Dyson DC44 animal. Could someone please tell me how this one compares with the Dyson v11. Is the suction stronger.
I also have the Mieli vacuum cleaner for my carpets and it has 1,200 W power. Can someone please tell me what the power is on the Dyson v11.

Hi Kerry, go to the Dyson.com.au site for the machine specifications - the suction is great, I have a cat and dog which always leave hair, a daily 5 min vac and you wouldn't know they were always in the house...the v11 picks it all up no problems, I recommend it if you have pets, hope this helps

Dyson
Dyson Team ..Dyson

Compared to your DC44, the Dyson V11 machine has stronger suction, longer run time (up to 60 minutes depending on floor tool and mode used), a larger bin, and a more powerful floor tool that automatically adjusts between carpets and hard floors.

While the V11 has a 545W motor, this doesn't indicate the performance of the machine. Dyson engineers work tirelessly to make Dyson machines perform better while using less energy and resources.

We hope this helps, however if you have any further queries our Dyson Experts are available via [email protected] and happy to help.
