We’re excited to announce that we now have the new Dyson V6 cordless vacuum line. Unlike the previous models, all of the Dyson cordless vacuums come with the powerful V6 motor and 2 tier cyclone technology. This has raised the ever popular question; What’s the difference between all of the Dyson cordless vacuums? But before we answer this question let’s go over their similarities. First, they all have the famous Dyson V6 motor and 2 Tier Radial cyclones. The V6 motor spins at an unbelievable 110,000 revolutions per minute! Dyson designed this motor to be small but strong enough to handle the high speeds giving you a powerful yet lightweight motor that doesn’t make the vacuum too heavy and bulky. This motor is powered by a nickel manganese cobalt battery (Type of Lithium Ion battery). With the increase in power and airflow Dyson had to improve filtration. This was achieved with their 2 Tier Radial cyclone technology which doubles the cyclones from their previous design. The increase in cyclones provide greater dirt separation resulting in cleaner air. Take a look at their video which explains in great detail how their cordless technology works. Dyson R&D Insights – YouTube
Now that we have an idea as to how they are similar, let’s go over the differences. The main differentiator between the Dyson V6 cordless line are the attachments. Not everyone has the same cleaning needs so Dyson packaged each one differently to best suit those needs. For starters we begin with the V6 Slim and V6+ which are identical with the exception of the V6+ that comes with a mini motorized cleaning head. Next we have the V6 Animal which is where Dyson upgrades the power nozzle. The nozzle has been engineered to provide 75% more brush bar power than the V6 Slim and V6+ models. This is accomplished by incorporating a direct drive motor (compared to belt drive) and more efficient brushes that cleans both carpet and bare floor. Finally the Dyson V6 Absolute has all of the features of the V6 Animal but also includes the soft roller cleaner head. This new and innovative head reminds us of a paint roller because of its dense soft texture intended to clean and sweep hard floors. Our testing has revealed that works very well at picking up sticky dust and even heavy debris on hard floors without the need of going back and forth, over and over… As an added bonus, the V6 Absolute has a HEPA exhaust filter for those needing cleaner air for the ultimate cleaning experience.
