So, we bought a cheapie and it's been useless. Do any mumsnetters have a cordless vaccum cleaner they swear by? Happy to spend a lot as long as it works well!

I love my dyson v6 absolute and I'm not a dyson fan at all.

Conflicting view for Dyson V6 Animal.

Mine is shit. Blocks over nothing to the point I always have a penny on hand to unscrew the damn thing and root around, have had to send away repair also. May be a rogue ? Will be watching this thread for alternatives.

Thinking about the dyson too. But I hate spending moneygrin

Mammylamb Tue 17-Jan-17 13:46:00

But if I buy a cheapie, I will probably end up buying another one a year later, so it's a false economy

Dyson v6 absolute, it's amazing. Brilliant for dog hair, £300 I've ever spent

I have a Dyson , I think its a V6 animal and it is not impressive at all , I have now got a Bosch Athlet , it's the top of the range one and I love it .

Vax tbttv1b1. Intended to buy the Dyson but this was way cheaper. Fab little thing and now intend to buy another to leave upstairs.

Agree.. Gtech is crap!
Do NOT get one of these!

I have a Dyson V6, good enough for what I need, it's light enough and the battery lasts long enough to do a quick buzz around the whole house every couple of days.

We've got the van one too and it's great for our all hard floor downstairs. It manages the rug in the living room but it wouldn't outdo a proper vacuum for carpeted rooms. It's great and so much easier than lugging the bloody corded Dyson about. I highly recommend everyone to have one particularly people who find housework a bit tough to keep on top of. So much easier than a corded massive heavy lump.

Couldn't love this more. Charges quickly, super light, I hoover about 10 times more than I ever did with the clunky beast we now have gathering dust in a cupboard somewhere! Worth every penny and we use the whole thing and the small handheld bit all the time.

I have the v6 animal and I love it so much. Very good suction and I also hoover way way more than I did with Henry. Not sure it lasts its full 20 mins though... but not a massive issue as plenty to do our kitchen extension and stairs which is what I mainly use it for.

lovemakespeace Tue 17-Jan-17 14:50:42

I was considering the Bosch one too but I read the handheld bit is not so easy to use so I wasn't sure about it for the stairs...

G Tech AirRam and the Multi-tool are fabulous, couldn't fault them at all!

Dyson V8 absolute, love it! Loads of power and plenty of battery for using as a 2nd hoover for downstairs.

Dyson v6 animal. Brilliant. Even though the motor in the brush head has broken after one year. Dyson sending me a new one as still under warranty.

summerholsdreamin Tue 17-Jan-17 18:12:31

I'm with Back, my Dyson V6 Animal is utter shite and total waste of £300 angry. Doesn't pick up properly, constantly blocks, brushes don't rotate.

SparklyFuckingBusinessFairy Tue 17-Jan-17 18:13:17

Oh god, DP is in love with our cordless vac. It also has a small hand held one. It was quite cheap too (compared to the dyson I had before that he hates!). Hang on, I'll see if I can find a link

rollonthesummer Tue 17-Jan-17 18:13:49

Dyson V6. I bought it last year and think it's brilliant! Even the kids like hoovering with it grin

SparklyFuckingBusinessFairy Tue 17-Jan-17 18:14:25


On special offer at the moment too. Must admit, the carpets look much better now.

Love my dyson v6.

LizzieMacQueen Tue 17-Jan-17 18:18:34

AEG one is good, has a little light at the front too, a tiny bit fiddly to empty the dust afterwards but it has excellent power.

Ditto ❤ dyson V6. Light and easy to use. Does chase rogue cheerios around though - doesn't quite get them!
