Totally agree about the Dyson Cordless Sticks! We have a V7 animal & love it still years later! The only “downside” is when you use it on the Amped up mode- it last 6mins! But normal usage gets about 30+ - big fan!
I’ve heard great things about the Dyson stick! We have a non-cordless dyson and it works great but if def bulkier to get out/maneuver around! Also, we have the Black & Decker Handheld Vacuum and love it for quick vacuums under the table for crumbs or quick clean ups! I have to admit I use that 100x more than the big vacuum. You have to keep the filter clean to keep the suction strong on the handheld one. Hope that helps! Happy shopping!
I love the concept of cordless ! But , the downside for me is the battery runs out to soon even when fully charged. My house is about to get tee peed for opening my mouth today but wait maybe I just need a newer Dyson because I have never had a good one.
We have the Dyson V8 Animal as well and we love it. We have 4 dogs, a cat, and kids and it does great. I also highly recommend the IRobot I7 series for hands free vacuuming. We use it when we are gone during the day :)
