Yes it does have a V8 motor inside this new Dyson handheld vacuum cleaner, but not the V8 motor you’re probably thinking of. The new Dyson V8 digital motor is compact, but can spin at up to 110,000rpm while boasting powerful fade-free suction. Best of all, it weighs just 2.6kgs!
Dyson and its engineers spent a very long time on making sure their new motors were able to continue to provide fade-free suction, while making it small and compact.
James Dyson, Owner of Dyson said:
“We’ve spent more than a decade and over £250 million developing our small and powerful digital motors. Our latest generation motor sits at the heart of the Dyson V8 cord-free vacuum. It’s the result of 18 months research and development and 500,000 hours of testing. This motor enables the Dyson V8 cord-free vacuum cleaner to be powerful and versatile, transforming the way people clean their homes.”
The Dyson V8 cord-free vacuum cleaner doesn’t just clean the floor, but quickly transforms between handheld and stick modes to clean down low, up high and everywhere in-between. Building on ten years of cord-free technology and motors expertise, the Dyson V8 cord-free vacuums offer several key evolutions compared to their predecessors. Increased runtime, hygienic dirt ejection, even more powerful suction and less noise generated are among the examples.
Dyson V8 vacuums have no cord. So there’s nothing to unravel, plug in, drag around and restrict your reach. Equipped with a docking and charging station, you can grab and clean whenever you need to.
Powerful suction generated by the Dyson digital motor V8 is paired with Dyson cleaner head technology. A direct-drive cleaner head removes ground-in dirt and pet hair from carpets, while a soft roller cleaner head removes large debris and fine dust from hard floors simultaneously.
Inside Dyson cord-free vacuums, key components like the motor and battery are positioned near the hand. This shifts the centre of gravity, making the cleaning end of the vacuum much lighter, so it’s easy to clean up top and down below.
The new Dyson V8 cord-free vacuums feature a new bin emptying mechanism. As the bin is emptied, a rubber collar slides down the shroud, scraping dirt off. This enables the user to hygienically drive out trapped dust and debris in a single action, with no need to touch the dirt. Additionally, the bin has higher capacity than previous generation machines.
The Dyson V8 Absolute vacuum includes the direct-drive cleaner head and the soft roller cleaner head, in addition to the mini motorised tool, the combination tool, crevice tool and mini soft dusting brush. This model has an RRP of $1049.
The Dyson V8 Animal vacuum includes the direct-drive cleaner head in addition to the mini motorised tool, the combination tool, crevice tool and mini soft dusting brush. This model has an RRP of $949.
The new Dyson V8 Handheld vacuum cleaner can now be bought at major retailers throughout New Zealand, and at the Dyson NZ Online Store. Both machines also include a 2 year hassle-free warranty on parts and labour.
