Wanna buy one of these and the only thing putting me off is the battery. Do they mean they are working on a battery for this model or future models?
Rep told us it's the same motor as the 59, just a few little tweaks. All the changes are in the attachments which have been drastically improved, and the HEPA filter in the absolute. If Luke can't check, I'll check on Wednesday, I don't see them changing the fitting though with a model revision.
The best thing about the V6 Absolute -- outside of that amazing suction -- is the sheer number of accessories you get. A Dyson vacuum is only as good as its head, and you get every head you could possibly want.
We have new carpets and a cat. We thought we were keeping the carpets clean. Just ran the absolute over the 'clean-looking' carpet and filled the bin in no time with not only cat hair but a lot of dust (on 6 week old 'clean' carpet)
I was unsure about this due to the price BUT IT'S THE BEST PURCHASE EVER!!!!
Yeah I know the 25 min battery life sucks, however, I had to empty my bin 9 times before it even finished..(my carpet THAT BAD and my previous 155 dollar hoover vacuum wasn't the greatest).
A newcomer to reasonably priced machines, Dyson makes its old Animal look pretty good now that it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Formerly called the Dyson DC59 Animal, the newly dubbed Dyson v6 got a fresh coat of paint and lost a couple of attachments in the changeover, but also dropped in price from $555 to $855. That's a great trade, and since you no longer have to pay twice as much as any other stick vacuum to get it, the solid performance of the Dyson v6 shines even brighter than before.
The absolute is so much quieter than my DC59, and the new brushhead is much better on hard floors, even the carpet one. The old one was a bit too forcefull and would flick crap away meaning you might have to chase it.
I'm a bit of a clean-freak when it comes to dust and dirt, so I have a DC59 Animal in my house right now, and it's great. The Dyson V6 Absolute, however, is better.
I sell these to little old ladies all the time, if it's not too heavy for them, I think you're being a bit precious :p. Yea they're expensive, but if you live somewhere small, to be honest, it's probably the only vacuum you need. Otherwise they're great for spot cleaning, I use mine several times a day. You could always spend a little less and get the animal, same motor just minus the HEPA filter and the extra attachments in the box for the Absolute.
The V6 Absolute comes with a soft-roller cleaner head for hard floors a direct-drive cleaner head for soft floors a mini-motorised tool for pet hair, furniture and car seats, and an adorable mini-soft dusting brush for compact tasks like keyboards and other such delicates. There's also an extension pole which can be attached for floor use or detached for compact handheld work. It's an all-purpose, go anywhere, clean anything vacuum.
