Dyson V8 Fluffy Cord-free Vacuum, Our Family Approves

The latest helper in our household is always ready for action, cleans and sucks for full 40 minutes, expels cleaner air and is very tough. The whole family is very excited and in love with this helper and we have to fight to use it each time it's taken out. Here are the reasons why we love our Dyson V8 Fluffy!

"I want to use lah!" - Zara, the littlest in the family approves.

"Ahahahahahahahaha" she goes and "Oh-oh dirty. I can clean lah. Yes lah." The youngest in the family also usually the reason why we have to use the Dyson V8 Fluffy to clean up the mess she makes. Biscuit crumbs, fallen cereals, soiled shoes and tiny pieces of paper cut-out, these are the common mess she makes in the house. In the past, we will first pull our hair and give a little "Aiyah! Again..." and then use our cordless vacuum cleaner to suck up the mess with a few back and forth with it.

Now, Zara will dash to the Dyson V8 Fluffy and attempt to clean up the mess herself. In the past, I would scream when she gets near the vacuum because the air coming out is kinda smelly and I feel its dusty too. But now with the whole machine filtration in the Dyson V8 I feel at ease when the kids use it. The filter captures allergens and expels cleaner air through the HEPA filter.

"Mummy you see here dirty..." - Ayra trying hard to spot dirt around the house (which is kinda challenging really)

In the past, no one bothers about that small crumb or piece of don't-know-what on the floor. These days, whenever Ayra spotted something on the floor that needs to be cleaned, she'll point it out and ask if she can vacuum the floor! Most of the time I'll just walk over, pick the whatever-it-is up and throw into the bin. She'll give me an irritated face after cos she just missed her chance to play clean up with the Dyson V8.

Free Time Means Vacuuming Time - Wherever, Whatever

You know the first few weeks with your new gadget and you bring it everywhere you go and use it as much as you can? Well, that's exactly what happened the past few weeks for us. In the evening after dinner, I'll spot my husband cleaning the house and sucking up crumbs from the stroller. Just few nights ago I was cleaning the dryer for the first time in 4+ years! Also because I was too lazy to setup our 5yo Delphin vacuum cleaner just to clean up inside the dryer. Just the thought of taking that bulky vacuum cleaner out from the storeroom already give me a headache. The only person who has been using that vacuum cleaner every week is our part-time helper who comes in once a week to clean the house. I think it's time we retire the bulky unit and make some space in our storeroom.

"I wanna get one too! Should I?"

If you are shopping for a new vacuum cleaner and is considering a Dyson, here are some of the reasons why you should consider this new Dyson V8 Fluffy.

Sucks for 40 minutes

The Dyson V8 offers improved battery runtime of up to 40 minutes, as compared to 20 minutes in previous generation machines. Suction power is constant throughout the run time, so you get full powered sucking when cleaning around your place.

Powerful fade-free suction

Conventional cordless vacuums rely on big, clunky motors that produce weak suction. The Dyson V8 offers powerful, fade-free suction because of the compact and powerful Dyson digital motor V8 which spins at 110,000rpm, five times faster than a Formula One car engine.

No more aching arms

The weight of the Dyson V8 rests right in the palm of your hand. This makes the machine easy to manoeuvre, and much easier to lift and clean those high and hard to reach places.

Sucks up fine dust and large debris at the same time

Instead of a brush bar with bristles, the Dyson V8 Fluffy cordless vacuum has a roller covered entirely in soft woven nylon. This traps large debris, whilst four rows of anti-static carbon fibre filaments remove fine dust.

Cleaner air when you clean

The Dyson V8 cord-free vacuum captures and retains more dust using patented 2 Tier RadialTM cyclones. 15 cyclones, arranged across two tiers, generate powerful centrifugal forces to spin dust and dirt out of the airflow.

Any remaining particles are captured by the post motor filter - including allergens and bacteria as small as 0.3 microns.

And because the entire system is engineered to be sealed, the air that leaves the machine is cleaner than the air you breathe.

No more dirt bag and more hygienic 

The Dyson V8 features a new bin emptying mechanism, eliminating the need to handle the dirt directly. 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.

Tough and durable, anyone can use it

Strong materials with durable and lightweight properties were chosen in the construction of the Dyson V8. The polycarbonate clear bin is made from the same durable material as riot shields.
