The lure of Dyson's new machines is too much to resist at the moment.

I bought the new V10 Total Clean today. I managed to get it for £450 instead of £500 as I have a friend who works in the shop I bought it from.

First impressions from using the 20% battery charge the machine came with...

It picks up very well. As well as the last full size Dyson I had - the upright Light Ball.

Suction on setting 1 is more than enough to clean my lightly soiled car on a weekly basis giving me the full 60 minute run time with suction only tools.

Suction setting 2 will be my main use setting for household cleaning and for cleaning my mums more neglected car that often resembles a farm inside.

Max setting gives impressive power however I'll likely rarely use this as my floors will never be soiled enough to require it.

Is it enough to replace a full sized machine? Yes and no. It will keep the floors clean, however if you gave me a REALLY soiled carpet that was long overdue a deep clean I think I'd prefer a corded machine.

Vacuum often - this will be more than enough. Vacuum rarely / when the carpets are crunchy underfoot and you'll want a corded machine.

Run time won't be long enough for me to give the full house a deep clean where I vacuum under furniture etc in every room so I'll still need a full size corded. This is however more than enough for day to day cleaning though and I'll probably only use a corded machine every week or two.

I've previously had a V6 Total Clean and found the bin on this machine awful to empty. Had to constantly poke about inside it to get everything out.

I had a V8 Animal and this was a nice machine.

The V10 takes it to the next level and is a nice upgrade in terms of features, specification and performance.

I find it a little short in height though as I am 6ft 4 tall. They could of maybe added an extra few inches to the length of the pole however this is no major issue.

The machine came very well packed and has a large selection of tools.

Experience with previous models tell me I will rarely use the 'Fluffy' hard floor head and the articulating reach high elbow.

Along with buying the new V10 I am also going to order the newest upright Dyson as the hose setup on it seems very interesting and I love the red coloured hose LOL it is nice to see they have gone back to a metal wand too.

Hopefully this link to a video of the new upright will work....

I'll post a video review of the V10 in the next week or so when I have time and also do a thread / video review on the new upright machine when I get that.

I am being given one of the new Dyson air purifiers to review soon and I have cheekily asked if I could be considered for a V10 if they get any samples in for review. If I don't get one I will wait until Very get them in stock and benefit from the 15% discount I am entitled to. I will probably go for the base model if the V8 tools fit the V10.

Very nice you will be able to breath nice clean air now Roger.

I have one of those water distillers you have too, they are very good. They leave quite a bit of sediment behind.

Ok... Now I WANT the Corded Upright if it makes it to the USA! Hopefully in the USA it will be all Blue or Purple.. I donít think I can buy it if our version is the circus colors. LOL No offense, Iím just picky about colors too and Red is my least favorite color as well as primary colors. But itís still a cool vacuum.

On the video at 0:46 did anyone else notice the Mini brushroll that he used to clean under the couch? Wow, that must be the smaller Air Driven Brushroll Head they used on the USA DC26 Multi Floor Canister. Great idea as the Tangle Free Turbine tool is awesome but doesnít lay very flat and canít always reach into smaller spaces.

Does anyone know if there has been any mention of this corded vacuum being sold in the USA yet??

Matt, congratulations on the beautiful new Dyson V10! I canít wait to hear how you like it and see your video review. Iím wondering.. do any of you in the UK know if is giving the V10 out to itís review customers?? If so, Iím hoping they give one to Roger Lang (ibaisaic) too as I bet he would love it.

Thanks for your post, pictures and the video Matt!

Well I gave the V10 its maiden voyage tonight.

Everything was done using the middle power setting.

I vacuumed the full house at the same slow speed I would go with a corded machine. In theory I have vacuumed most rooms twice as I will do a room in one direction and then go over it all again in the opposite direction to make sure the brush roll gets right into the carpet pile.

I vacuumed the hard floor in the kitchen and dining room with the Fluffy head thoroughly doing under the dining table etc - in future I'll use the normal head for this floor but I wanted to give the Fluffy head a run to make sure it is working properly before I put it away in a cupboard.

Stairs and a fabric recliner chair we have in the living room (sofas are leather) were done with the motorised mini head so I've been using the most power sapping tools throughout the whole cleaning session.

After doing the full house the battery still had one of the three bars of power. It dropped to the last bar of power as I did the last bedroom (3 bedroom house) so I'd estimate I had about 20% power remaining by the time I had finished.

The only things I didn't do is go around the edges of carpeted rooms with the crevice tool and dust skirting boards with the dusting brush. These are things I'll probably do on big cleans with a corded machine anyway.

All in all the run time is more than enough to clean an averaged size home on the normal power mode.

House was last vacuumed 3 days ago using a 5 month old Sebo Felix that had a nearly new bag installed.

No kids or pets in the house.

This is what the Dyson has collected.

A respectable amount of dirt, with a mixture of carpet fibre from some wool carpets, dust, sand, grit and fine powdery dust. Certainly on par with what a full sized Dyson would remove on a similar vacuuming session and on par with what the Felix would remove too.

I dare say if I took a cup full of salt and scrubbed it into the carpet pile the V10 wouldn't do as well as a corded machine, however for normal day to day cleaning the V10 does a respectable job.

I want a full sized machine still and I am going to order the new upright I pictured above, however for my needs I could in theory have the V10 as my ONLY machine and not have any problems with running out of power or it not cleaning well enough.

Rodger - The new Dyson air purifier looks good. I had one of the Hot+Cool Pure Link ones a while ago. I bought it primarily to heat my bedroom when I finish work - I work 5pm till 1am shifts and if the house is a bit chilly when I get in from work I don't want to put the heating on and heat the full house at that time of night.

It seemed to work very well as an air purifier but if I came home from work and got into bed to watch TV while the heater was on the noise from the fan on a higher speed was a little annoying.

I ended up exchanging it for a Delonghi Dragon 4 heater - top model with the digital display and 10 year warranty.

Obviously a completely different product but for what I primarily want it for, heating, it does a very very good job and does it silently. In fact on high power it kicks out enough heat to fully heat a 3 bedroom victorian house in winter when our boiler decides to die.

Yes I'm pleased with the performance of it.

I've just ordered the new Ball Animal 2 as well.

It is due for delivery tomorrow :)

I've never had so many just released machines before LOL

Hi Matt.. Hi Mark...

Congratulations Matt on buying the Dyson Ball Animal 2! I donít know if itís identical to mine from the USA but I absolutely LOVE mine for carpeting. Itís got great suction and is very powerful.

Mark, I LOL every time you talk about Balls.. and now when I talk about the Dyson Ball vacuums I chuckle.

I am very pleased to have Three current vacuums from Dyson (Cinetic Big Ball, Ball Animal 2 and Small Ball Multi Floor), I would have four as my V8 is not too old, but wow that V10 is very very tempting to me. The more I read and see reviews about it, I want one too. But I am waiting because with Marks clarification about the Oreck Pod Cordless NOT having Air driven brushrolls.. I now am thinking of buying the Oreck. I did put a call in though and spoke with a lovely woman in Oreck customer service that said I could be considered for a free at home trial of the Oreck Cordless Pod, ďIFĒ there are still customers needed. Either way she was kind enough to take my information and my email address. Iím sure it helps that my account with Oreck shows within a little over a years time, I have bought direct from Oreck Six vacuums.

Thanks to everybody for sharing about this newest Dyson Corded Upright.. I REALLY hope the USA gets a version of this as I definitely will buy one if available. Regardless of the color scheme, I love the new features on this one. Does anyone know if this Dyson Corded Upright has suction control? Is it taller or is the Cyclone and Dirt Bin more slender than say the Ball Animal 2??

Thanks guys for everything.. love the posts.. love the pics and especially value the opinions on the performance of these newest Dyson machines. Itís much appreciated, as are all of you guys.

Hi Matt, thanks for your review and really detailed info on the V10, I also liked your video. I am looking to replace my DC59 this week and am torn between the V8 Total Clean and the V10 Total Clean. I am trying to justify the £150 difference between the 2. I would use it mainly for hard floors with a little bit carpet and a bit for cleaning the car. It seems that on normal power with the motorised head there is little difference in runtime between the 2. Do you think the extra performance justifies the extra expense for the V10 - £500 seems so much, although £350 is not small change either! 😀

Post# 389831 , Reply# 13   4/4/2018 at 20:36 (197 days old) by matt8808 (Teesside - North East - UK)        

I had a V8 a while back and personally I prefer the V10.

Charge time on the V8 is 5 hours, whereas the V10 is 3.5 hours. The V10 also offers a bigger bin and a longer run time.

I suppose only you can decide if it is worth paying for the latest model. If you are going to use it often or as a main vacuum then I'd go for the V10.

Overall performance in terms of how clean your floor is left after use there isn't really any difference IMHO.

Thanks for your reply and thoughts. I think Iíll just swallow the cost and just go for the V10, I doubt Iíll be happy if I compromise. Will look forward to your video and thoughts on the Ball Animal 2 also. I really like the look of the articulated joint on the hose with the metal wand and handle!

Hello vacfan, I see u are from Cardiff too! Iíve changed my mind again, but Iíve ordered them both this afternoon 😳 I had all but decided on the V10 but was really struggling with the £500 as I know I will only be selling in a year or so when something else comes along. Anyway I opened a Very account and ordered the V8 Absolute and the Ball Animal 2 - with 10% off first order and 3 months to pay. So both of them cost just over the price of the V10. Canít wait to try the Ball Animal 2 out - especially the new hose set up.

Have you got the adapter to use dc41 tools on the V8? And do you know if the V8 connections are the same as the Light Ball/Ball Animal 2 - Iím sure they will be? I was going to order one so I could keep all my DC55 tools and extras Iíve bought.

The V8 and the Light Ball have the same fitting. They moved the red clip onto the tool instead of the hose.

If you haven't got an adapter Dyson might send you one free of charge if you're lucky. Especially considering all the Dysons you now own!

I used to have one of the older DeLonghi heaters that worked pretty well. I think the one I had was oil filled.

A few years ago, I received an Eden Pure Infrared heater and that thing will throw out some serious heat! The best thing is the outside of the units are cool to the touch. Do they sell those over on your side of the world?

Thx, will give them a try. But they wouldnít budge on pricing yesterday even for 2 purchases. No way would they match the Very 10% - which I thought was a little tight considering the are the manufacturer.

Hey Jon,

Congratulation on your two new Dyson vacuums! I wish I could have the Ball Animal 2 as well.. but I live in the USA and our Ball Animal 2, as you UK peeps know, is quite a bit different. I LOVE my Dyson V8 and if you saw my other two Dyson Threads I posted.. I had excellent care from them. I guess the UK and USA Dyson representatives can offer different things, as when I bought mine I got 25% off the price and since I bought the Ball Animal 2 and the Dyson Small Ball Multi Floor, the current online promotion was to pre-register your vacuums in return for three free attachment tools. So I got six free tools, 25% discount and now I get free shipping as a VIP. But I think the only way for me to buy a Dyson with payments, is to buy on QVC. So you got a great deal with the extra months. I canít wait to see pictures of your vacuums and please tell us what you think and how you love them.

Hi Mark,

I wish our USA Ball Animal 2 had the same red clip tools, so far only my V8 has those tools. Unless I bought a Cinetic Canister (Cylinder) vacuum or the awesome new V10.. I donít have any other vacuums in my collection with the new tools beyond the V8. I like that since I have all the tools made by Dyson, that they fit my new Animal and Small Ball.. but after using the V8, I prefer the new design and find it much easier to change the tools with one hand. But regardless.. itís Dyson and they have treated me so well, I canít help but love and recommend them.

Oh and I WANT the attachment bracket that stores the Tangle Free Turbine ON THE VACUUM.. jeeze I wish the USA vacuums had that type of clip attachment. I even asked the Dyson rep if the Turbine storage clip would fit my Ball Animal 2.. sadly she said it does not fit. Oh well... I am happy for you guys in the UK.

Thanks Everybody,

Vacfan1982 & Somertons25

While the V8/V10 & LightBall/Ball2 take the same style quick release tools the sizing fitment is very different with the diameter of the cordless tools being a lot smaller. Therefore the tools from the cordless machines do not fit the mains powered ones.

I want that US Ball 2 so badly. It has 250 air watts and the EU Ball 2 90 air watts. That is so unfair. Also the US version has that aggressive brushroll with extremely good agitation. We don't have that either.
Only thing what I would add to the US Ball 2 is the large debris channels and suction selector from the EU model.

Hi Patrick

I was wondering if the US Ball 2 was the same as the UK DC41 Mk2 or the DC55 which I have. But looking at the brush roll it seems a little different. BTW I love the colour accent on the front of the brush roll! Your machines look in perfect condition - do you use them? If you do, how are the bins so clear? I have seen on some YouTube videos mentions of hairspray in the bin when new?

Iím wondering what type of fluffy head I will get with the V8 when it arrives. It seems that thereís a version with two rollers (like yours) and a different one with no roller at the back? I wonder why it was changed and whatís the difference?

Hi Matt

Thatís a shame, I assumed the tools would be interchangeable like my V6/DC55. I guess that means thereís 2 adapters to buy. Thereís a few extra tools I had with the DC55 that Iíd like to keep.

BTW I just found out as a new member I can only post every 30 minutes - thatís frustrating! 🙄 Does anyone know how long that restriction lasts?

The adaptors are £3 to buy from Dyson. Although I think if you ring them when you register the machine they might send one out for free

Not sure if they do an adaptor for the cordless machines though... I've never seen one.

No idea on the new member restrictions I'm afraid

I got the opportunity to play with one at Best Buy yesterday. Apparently, the Best Buy employees get kind of pissed off if you try the demo displays. Anyway, this Dyson certainly looked neat. It did not have as much suction as I was expecting. Airflow is next to none. It picked up larger particles that the nozzle was run over. I dumped a little dirt on the test rug they had and was less than impressed with the results. The opening to the bin and cyclone assembly was really small, reducing airflow and creating a blockage point. Battery is non removable as well. I wonder how long it will take for these to show up in my local vacuum shop

Hey guys, got home uber excited this evening to my 2 new Dysons.

Thereís loads of reviews about the V8 so I wonít tell you about that. But the Ball Animal 2 is just gorgeous, seems so much quieter than the DC55 Iíve got. The new hose set up is great too! The machine seems much more nimble than the DC55/41 - although itís turning circle is tighter, it doesnít seem to nip round the corners the same way. As Matt has already said the colour scheme is beautiful too! I havenít been this excited about a new machine since the Sebo Felix about 7 or 8 years ago. I donít mean I havenít enjoyed lots of lovely machines over the years but this is just beautiful - can I say that after being such a Miele/Sebo and bagged fan for years?!?

I thought I was going to be super excited about the floor nozzle, but Iím just meh... about it. Maybe itís because Iím so used to Miele turbo nozzles screaming it just seems a little quiet to me. Also it just seems a bit small. Iím not sure if I will be keeping the mini turbo tool on the side as I think it spoils the look - although I used to feel that about the Sebo X4 but I got used to it.

Dyson also arranged to send me out the adapters for the V8 and the Ball 2 - so I can keep all my old tools too. Although Iíve not got quite the collection the Patrick has 😀

Anyway if you got any questions Iíll be happy to answer -obviously as a newbie and not trying to steal anyoneís thunder as there are others far more knowledgable than I that have the machine first 😜 Matt 😜

Can u tell Iím a little giddy 🙄

Haha really glad you're pleased with your new machines. The Ball Animal 2 has to be one of the nicest Dyson uprights imho. I agree about it being a little strange the tangle free turbine head being housed on the machine but you soon get used to it.

Hi Jon,

Congratulations and so happy you got your two new Dyson vacuums and get to use them now. Thank you for the kind comments and I appreciate your replies too. Those Dyson tools shown in the picture are only PART of my collection.. I have another large bin full of one of every attachment tool NIB, never used for my collection and my Black Dyson Tool Bag is full along with one small bin full of tools. 🙄😬 (Hello.. my name is Patrick and I am a Dyson-Aholic!) Oh and Jon.. Iím VERY happy that you are Giddy.. I am too with every vacuum I add to my now 250 vacuums collection. It is fun and donít ever worry about being new or anything like that here on vacuumland. Almost everyone here has been very patient with me and welcomed me as a newbie not too long ago and I havenít had anyone complain about my ďgiddyĒ posts.. I figure if they get tired of me they donít have to read my threads... but I do try to make it interesting for as many people as I can.. but itís lots of Fun here! As far as the 30 minutes.. I just gave up and paid the $12 bucks for the premium upgraded account so for a year I can post as often without time constraints. Itís well worth it too as you get to see which threads you have read already and the ones updated are marked and so are the brand new threads.. itís very well planned out and I enjoy this website better after the upgrade.. and how inexpensive too.

So my Dyson Big Ball Animal 2 and my Small Ball Multi Floor (pictured in my previous post here) are in mint condition because I have only used them about two times. I was going to just use them, but then with Dyson stopping further development of corded uprights, I decided to keep these two as Collectibles ONLY for my own fun and collection.. itís not like they will stop manufacturing the same current uprights. I also thought, maybe if we are lucky, USA consumers will get one more Upright that ďMaybeĒ was designed and developed but NOT yet released for sale, before Sir James stopped development?? Maybe, but who knows for sure. SO glad Dyson sent you the Adaptor, I like using all the tools and my favorites, they donít (to my knowledge) yet make them for the new Dyson that have this red quick tool release. The Reach Under Tool and the Flat Out Floor Tool. Iíve only seen them with the previous connectors, but I can only search for Cinetic Canister (Cylinder) tools to find out, so I may be wrong.

Hi Mike811,
I totally agree and wish the brushroll head of the US Animal 2 had the UKís suction slide adjustment! It REALLY should have been fit with some kind of suction control as like you mentioned it has the Whopping 270 Air Watts (see pic from Dyson website) and it wants to dig down into plush carpet, making it almost impossible to push. But you are right.. you should SEE the fantastic rug agitation and this Dyson is the very best Dyson I have at picking up pet hair. Kermit can shed all he wants and it gobbles it all up, especially with the high Air Watts, the Tangle Free Turbine whisks every pet hair away with ease.

Thanks Matt for pointing out the Cordless V8 and V10 Tools donít fit the New Red Connector Tools, sold with uprights and canisters. The diameter is different, and Iíd forgotten until you mentioned it. Thanks.

Hi Jon,

I forgot to answer you regarding the Fluffy head you receive with the newest V8 vacuum. If you receive the same parts for your UK V8 as they send to US customers, youíve probably already got your answer as your vacuum was delivered, but I will explain my pictures. On my previous post on this thread, I accidentally posted the pics to my V6, but the heads of that and my Two year old V8 are very similar in appearance. My older, two year old V8 came with the Fluffy head that has the back fuzzy blue roller. The other brushroll from my two year old V8 had a purple flat base at the back of the brushroll.

Now with my newest V8 that Dyson just sent me the two heads are the newest, updated heads.. Iíve attached pics to show on the Fluffy head, there is No back roller and only small wheels now. On the other brushroll, there is now a Blue/Purple Squeegee instead of the simple flat design. I find both of the newest heads work best, so the redesign was a good thing. I think they both are more effective at cleaning and the newest Fluffy seems to go in a straight line easier than the double roller design. The Squeegee on the other head is very good at helping groom the carpet and if you use it on hard floors, it prevents things from flying out the back of the brushroller.

Iím sorry I didnít catch that sooner Jon, but thanks for sharing and as you said too.. ask anything and if I can answer or help, I will gladly help.

Thanks guys!!

size f Dyson tools and adapters

This would be mainly about the corded vacs. Did Dyson ever use standard 32 mm tools? I know they don't anymore but was wondering if they ever did and if an adapter exists to convert Dyson's current tool design to a standard one.

Hi mike

Iím not sure if the early models were 32mm or larger. I have DC07 in the loft and will check tomorrow and report back. I do have an adapter that converts DC41/V6 tools to older models so will check this tomorrow too. And I am also just waiting on adapters from dyson that concert V8/UK Ball Animal 2 styles to DC41 style. I didnít have any models between DC07 (2003) and DC41 (2016). Someone else may not here?!?

I found the following video that demonstrates the adapters to you.

Hope this helps.

Regards. Jon.
