V6 or V7
« on: April 16, 2019, 02:43:31 PM »
I've made up my mind and I'm selling Miele to get a cordless Dyson as it is really going to be much more useful in my house with 2 cats.
I'm thinking about these two models.
Which one would you say is better?
I read that V6 has better filtration system. But I like floor head that comes with V7 more as well as its mini motorised tool. Also  V6 has a better suction, am I right?
I'm planning to buy it through Dyson Outlet on ebay.  Anyone got some experience with it?

Wow, I was wrong. V6 and V7 have the same mini motorised tool.

The V7 is a better machine than the V6.

I think all the tools are the same across the v6, 7 and 8, so you could buy the cheapest 'unit' you can with little included tools, and just buy the ones you want!

So basically I could get V6 it's now for 199 so I could get it with tool kit. Do you guys know if it use the same connection as cylinder or uprights? Or is it smaller?
I just read that the battery on V6 doesn't last very long and it kinda scares me 
Can you leave the cleaner on charge when you don't use it or do you have to turn the charger off?

My v6 last longer if i turn the max option off, but tbh i haven't used it for a few weeks now.
Oh, just leave it on charge, it knows when it is charged and nothing to worry about


Gone back to a DC24 myself.
The only failure is not to try.

The v6 uses the same tools as the dc24/25/40/41, so many cheap toolkits available for small tools. You'll need the machine to come with the wand and floor head though

I've decided to go with V7 Animal from Dyson's outlet on eBay.
