Final stick vacuum deathmatch!
Posted by: anonymouse1

I can get a refurb Dyson V8 Animal for $210, or a refurb V10 Absolute for $300. I'm leaning toward the V8. 2,000 sq ft house, wood floors with a few rugs. We'd use it for partial midweek cleanings between using our old canister every week or two.

I don't see the added value for the V10. Yeah, it has a bigger cannister, and a longer runtime, but for a secondary vacuum, I don't see the value.

Get me to change my mind!

Go with your original analysis. I volunteer to take the $90 off your hands, if you're so inclined. big grin smiley

Our V8 became out primary vacuum after a month or so.

Do both of these models come with the Fluffy head? You're gonna need it for the hardwood floors.

Back when we bought our 8, the 10 had just come out. There were complaints about the 10 being more difficult to empty than the 8. That, plus the huge discounts on the 8 vs. the 10, led us to the 8. We have wood and tile almost all over but carpets in 2 bedrooms that are rarely used. The 8 works fine for us.

One thing, probably for all of them, is that eventually the brush might stop spinning when put on a rug. Not on the rug it seems fine. That required a cleaning of the head on ours. There was no mass of stuff stuck in there, but cleaning the filter and taking it apart and washing out the canister thing made it work just fine. Youtube video shows how.
