Is the Dyson V6 still worth it?

At around 200, is the V6 still worth it in 2018?

I'm in New Zealand, so any kind of official Dyson refurb outlet is out of the question, sadly. The prices on the V6 went down for a bit, but they're coming back up after the V10 launch for some reason so I'm eyeing getting a base model V6 before it goes back up. https://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=3064957

Had mine 1 year 3 months now, had to totally strip it and deep clean, good as the day i bought it.
180 in the argos sale, worth every penny i reckon.

Shop i worked for until dec last year, used to send me out to do the wall fitting cradles. Last one i did (d59)?? didn't have the cradle included - customer had to return it and spend a bit more on a version that included it ?

There are deals around now for 199 with the tool kit. I'm really tempted even though my boyfriend calls me crazy as we've got Dyson and Miele  :whist11:
Or maybe I'm just crazy and it's not really worth it.
Prices of their cordless cleaners are really really high

So as far as I understand, V6 Absolute should be basically cleaning as good as V8 cause it has the same suction power and the same floor head together with sealed HEPA system?

They are a vast improvement on the DC16 but they really arent good enough to be the main cleaner for your house . We use ours when the floors carpets arent to dirty and use a mains machine for the hard work.

Had ours 2 years and 7 ish months now.
Still good but had a new battery just before the warranty expired - foc from dyson... ;-)

Tbh we have gone back to a dc24, i picked up realllly cheap with a knackered head motor. The dc24 is better for the house carpets with us living on a farm, the v6 now tends be used on light clean ups etc.

I have washed my filter for the first time, maybe in 2 months as it looked clean anyway.
I took the cage out, with difficulties. And what I've seen really shocked me. There was a lot of cat hair inside it  :underchair: :underchair:
How the hell did they got in there?

I have a V8 at home but same here. We have a Sebo X4 for the proper work.
