Editor's Notes

September 26, 2019:

When Dyson vacuums first hit the market the only question on a potential buyer's mind was whether or not they wanted to invest in the pricey machine. Now they offer more than the best suction on the market, they have a full suite of choices from upright to handheld and some other pretty impressive features.

The ball technology took what was once a heavy hard-to-maneuver piece of machinery, and gave it the ability to navigate precisely around furniture with the turn of a wrist. The Animal Ball 2 is still their most impressive model with a suite of advance attachments to get at hair and dander on any surface of your house.

You can save some money by opting for the Ball Multi Floor 2, especially if you don't have pets. These two models are very similar, except the Multi Floor has a slightly less powerful motor and weighs a few pounds less, but you also won't get the incredible turbine tool for upholstery, that some consider worth the price difference between the two models.

The V11 Torque Drive is in many ways an update to the V8 Absolute, but considering that the V11 is so much more expensive, the V8 remains a great alternative to the latest and greatest. If you only use your stick vacuum for short sessions, you many not need the longer battery life and larger bin.
