What do customers say about this product?

Customer Reviews of Dyson V8 Animal on Amazon

Overall, the Dyson V8 Animal is rated at 4.6 out of 5 stars from customer reviews on Amazon.


The foregoing screenshot is among other reviews made since the product’s first appearance on Amazon early 2016.

The reviews vary, depending on customers’ individual experiences with the product. They range from positive to critical.


Positive Reviews

Many customers are happy about the vacuum’s lightweight. They claim that you can handle it one-handed.


The vacuum is also considered quieter than most vacuums. They praise its ability to pick up hair and fluff from the carpet.

The consensus is that the vacuum is “outstanding.”

The screenshots below attest to this!


See this 2018 review



And this one in 2020


An older review in 2017 indicates that you’ll save time due to the absence of plugging and unplugging. This is as opposed to the former corded types.


More accessed reviews indicate that the Dyson V8 is great on stairs, small home spaces, and car interiors.


They also like the vacuum’s suction power.

They say it’s good for people who keep pets.


Lastly, some customers like the vacuum’s wall attachment. They also admire the extra attachments that come with the vacuum.


What do the critics say about the Dyson V8 Animal?

Find out here.


Critical Reviews

The price of the vacuum is too inhibitive! For $399.99, most customers feel the pinch and shy away.

These two customers attest to this fact.


And this one!


Poor Customer Service is yet another drawback. Many customers dislike the way Dyson support handles clients’ complaints. The Dyson support uses a very slow and ineffective feedback process as illustrated in this extract.


The Dyson V8 Animal cleaner has a poor motor that pulses after a few minutes. The same goes for design.

The process of rectifying the motor is long and ineffective. See the extract here.  

The battery and the bin of the vacuum are limited according to yet other critics. They dislike the idea of the battery giving you only up to 7 minutes in Max mode with a motorised tool.


And …


Then another customer claims that the device is bulky. Additionally, the design of the handle is faulty.

Why is this? Because a strong static charge can build-up where the recharging terminal is located in the handle when working. This can discharge right into the palm of your hand.



Recommendations for Improvement

What do you think should be done to improve the Dyson V8 Animal?

The battery can be designed similar to a power tool battery found on drills. This way, the battery could be removed and instantly replaced with a spare.

Provision of a spare battery can be another way of improving the Dyson V8 Animal.

It’d be great if the emptying of the dust bin is made easy. It can be achieved by changing the material of the red pull lever from plastic to aluminium.

This will also improve the customer experience when pulling the lever upwards.

Changing the location of the recharging terminal in the handle can be another great idea for improvement.

And the price? It can be adjusted downwards for affordability.
