Amazon dropped its price for the Dyson V8 Animal Cordless Stick Vacuum significantly lower than all the other Dyson V-series Animal models, which makes it an excellent deal.
Dyson V-series cordless stick vacuum models range from V6 to V11, though there was no V9 model. Most V-series generations have three variants: Motorhead, the basic machine with few accessories; Animal, usually the same machine with a hefty assortment of accessories; and Absolute, the top-of-the-line for that series, with the full list of attachments. Even though more is often better, the typical $100 price jump from the Animal to Absolute version includes accessories that make some cleaning jobs a bit easier but don’t add significant new functionality. So for most of us, the Animal version of a given V-series Dyson cordless stick has all we’ll need (or use).
Dyson cordless stick vacuum generations differ in battery run time, dust bin size, suction power, suction modes, cleaner head, and air filtration. All models convert to handheld vacuums for cleaning stairs, furniture, walls, and ceilings. As you’ll see below, the V8 Animal Cordless Stick Vac has many features of the latest generations, but the price is similar to the earlier models.
