Dyson V8 Animal Extra Handstick Vacuum Cleaner is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 81.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overpriced and not fit for purpose Not happy AT ALL with this vacuum cleaner. While suction is good, the foot simply kicks bits out from under it on hard floors, and is absolutely useless on shaggy rugs (doesnt pick hardly anything up). Good on carpet, but you dont want to have 2 different vacuum cleaners to vacuum one house. Battery life is terrible. Sales pitches claim it runs for "up to 33 minutes". Clever wording there. Mine on full power with the beater bar foot only runs for not even 10 minutes, so I haveto vacuum my 2 bedroom unit in two goes, waiting for it to charge in between. I am now returning it to Harvey Norman for a full refund, anx buyimg a filter kit for my old faithful Miele

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I purchased this to replace my V6 slim handstick and this is hands down better than my previous! The larger roller doesn't collect hair around it and instead goes into the canister, and the improved canister opening makes sure all the dirt collected drops out and you don't need to fully dismantle or get something like a butter knife to clean the filter of lint. Dyson after service is impeccable as experienced with my V6 slim handstick...they are extremely informative and helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending this handstick to anyone! And they make you vacuum so much more as it is so easier to grab off the wall and put back up. I very rarely use my barrel vacuum anymore....only to clean the car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to fault! I have a double coated dog (shedding!) and floorboards that show every sprinkle of hair in the sunlight. I bought this vacuum after having two other brands and it’s been great so far. Super convenient being cordless and very easy to setup. I only ever use it on max power so the downside would be battery life and charging time. It would also be good if it could be used on-cable / charge in smaller spaces such as bathrooms. Loving it overall and have recommended it to other pet owners!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute waste of money, overpriced junk Battery life on this thing is absolutely shocking, especially for the price point. Plus if you try plug charger in you can't use it while charging. My partner bought it, was not happy especially for how much it cost and how much vaccuum time you get out of one charge. Plus you only get one battery and it's not interchangeble or removable. Even my 100 dollar black n decker cordless drill comes with 2 battery, charger and case. Build quality not bad just features.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money I loved everything about a stain vacuum except I didn’t know that you have to hold the button down for the vacuum to work. Not suitable for someone with hand/joint issues otherwise, great suction power & love that it opens on the bottom container with a pull of a lever. We also bought the stand with it to make charging an ease and takes up very little space We previously had a German vacuum with similar functions but the Dyson is just superior in its suction/cleaning abilities. We vacuumed with the Dyson after we vaccines with the German vacuum and the container was still full of sand

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best decision ever I picked up my Dyson V8 Animal Extra about a month ago and I love it. Picks up so much dust and fluff. I haven’t actually used my old barrel vacuum since having this one. It’s so convenient. I have a large house, and so far the battery life has not worried me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I bought this to replace my dyson V7 stick vacuum originally looked at purchasing another V7 but with 2 dogs decided to upgrade So glad I did as it picks up more dog hair, has an improved run time and is less messy when emptying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overpriced but works well. I haven’t had this long, max power lasts about 7minutes(stated in manual) standard power lasts the whole house (4bed.) Really good suction only with the motorised heads. The suction isn’t the greatest without these attachments. LOVE that it is cordless but very expensive.
