Dyson V6 Cordless Reviews: Total Clean, Animal, Absolute, or Fluffy?

The Dyson V6 range of cordless vacuum cleaners was introduced in the Spring of 2015 as an improvement of the previous “DC” series of cordless vacuums. All V6 models feature the same digital “V6” motor which spins up to a very powerful 110,000 rpm resulting in a very decent suction for a cordless vacuum cleaner.

You’ll get around 20 minutes usage from a single charge and if you want higher suctions levels, a “boost” mode can be run for up to 6 minutes. A neat touch on the Dyson V6 cordless vacuums is the motorised cleaning head, although using this will slightly reduce your running time. Other features include easy conversion to a handheld vacuum cleaner and a neat docking or wall mounted charging station that also holds the tools.

Cannot decide between the Dyson V6 Total Clean, Absolute or Animal models? The main difference between the models is the tools provided and how you attend to use, for example, cleaning of hard floors as well as carpets or for cleaning pet hairs. Our guide below highlights and compares the differences between the best selling Dyson V6 cordless vacuum models.

Dyson V6 Cordless Models Compared

Dyson V6 Total Clean Review

Dyson-V6-Total Clean

The Dyson V6 Total Clean is our favourite out of the Dyson cordless vacuum cleaners V6 range, and for a very good reason.

With similar base features such as only weighing 2.3kg and therefore being light and agile, a similar overall size, 0.4 litre capacity (definitely enough to clean a whole house) and a similar battery life and run time of around 20 – 27 minutes (depending on power mode), it ticks all the same boxes as the others in this range.

But, this particular Dyson V6 really comes into its own when you start looking at it’s additional extras like that of the direct drive cleaner head or stubborn dirt brush. This plus the 75% more brush bar power alone makes the Total Clean vacuum cleaner stand out as it enables the vacuum’s bristle to push significantly deeper into your carpet and therefore remove stubborn dirt a lot easier and quicker.

Along with the direct drive cleaner head, this vacuum also comes with soft roller cleaner head that is ideal if you’re needing to clean hard wooden surfaces as well as that of carpet or rugs. This makes it easy to suck up all the fine dust or dust particles that get left across hard surfaces that we might otherwise not be able to see.

One more additional to this vacuum cleaner that can’t go without being mentioned is the combination tool / mini motorised tool that is great at getting into corners and crevices and to clean out built up pet hair and dirt. This motorised mini tool can actually be surprisingly helpful and shouldn’t be overlooked.

And last but not least, the Total Clean cordless vacuum also going with a max power boost mode that enable you to ramp up the suction power for up to 6 minutes at a time. The benefit of the boost mode over the normal mode is the ability for the vacuum cleaner to loosen and then suck up really tough bits or dirt that might have been lodge into your carpet or rug. Think along the lines or pretty hard trodden in mud, it’s that good.

Out of the Dyson V6 vacuum cleaners, the Dyson Total Clean isn’t the lowest price option, but is does exactly what you need it to, whether is be cleaning dust from hard floors or tough dirt with it’s powerful suction mode. Definitely worth considering.
