Dyson V6 Absolute Vaccum: Product Review

{Post brought to you in conjunction with Dyson}

Last month I was invited along to see the latest and greatest Dyson - the V6 Absolute - in action at the One Fine Baby Fair in Melbourne. Now I am a bit of a Dyson fan from way back, we have had our trusty Dyson upright vacuum for around 6 years now and it is a very well loved member of the family. Needless to say, it didn't take me much convincing to get along to this gig (and leaving my two toddlers at home was a bonus too!!).

The Dyson V6 in action at out place!
Even though I am a bit of a neat freak, it is actually my hubby that is super pedantic when it comes to the cleanliness of our flooring at home. We popped new carpet and flooring in some 6 or so years ago, but still to this day he insists on shoe removal and not eating a morsel of food within 500 metres of any carpeted area!! However let's just say in the name of peace around here, when hubby is at work, sometimes I may 'relax' the rules a bit with the kids and myself. This usually results in a huge last minute dash before he gets home to remove any mess from the floors. And boy is there mess...

Life pre Dyson - on a good day!
On any one day we have craft remnants, food crumbs and dog hair littered around the place. I simply don't have the time (or the patience) to lug the regular vacuum out to tackle the spot mess, so the V6 stick vacuum is an absolute saviour compared my old dust pan and brush alternative!

I found the unit itself to have all of the power of our regular Dyson, but in a far more convenient 'stick' design. It is super light (only 2.2 kilos), so much so that the kids can easily zoom around and clean up their mess and I must say mine LOVE doing it too.


The kids love using the V6 as a handheld vacuum
Not sure that they will feel the same way about vacuuming and chores in 10 years time, so I am enjoying it while it lasts!


We have a combination of wood floors and carpet in our home. The V6 Absolute model is perfect for tackling these different areas with two specially designed head attachments included with the unit.



One is a soft roller cleaner head designed for hard floor surfaces such as wood, tiles or vinyl. The other head has a Dyson engineered brush bar to whip your carpeted areas in to a state of cleanliness you've probably never witnessed before! 


Boy does this thing suck (in a good way!). The Dyson never fails to amaze me when it comes to just how much dirt, dust and grime they suck up compared to other models.

The sheer power behind this machine does mean that it chews through the charge at a rapid rate. Whilst I wouldn't be able to get our whole 4 bedroom home done on the 20 minute charge time that you get, it would definitely replace a traditional vacuum entirely if I lived in a smaller home, unit or apartment.



The filter itself is not huge and does need emptying after each little clean. This is super easy to do with the push of a button, you can empty straight in to the rubbish bin.

Quite simply, the Dyson V6 Absolute vacuum has the convenience of the good old fashioned dust buster, but with the horsepower of the leading barrel Dyson models! My favourite bit? I love the flexibility to remove the stick and use as a handheld unit- perfect for cars, stairs and those icky spaces in between your sofa too. Loved by adults and kids alike (seriously!), ladies and gents this should be on your Chrissie wish list this year!

The Dyson V6 Absolute has an RRP of $899 and is available at all leading electrical retailers.

Dyson fan? Have you tried the V6 Absolute? Love to hear your experience. Definitely worth checking this out in store near you!
