For those looking for a lightweight vacuum to handle odd jobs around the house, without sacrificing power and performance, you can always trust Dyson. In this case, the best Dyson vacuum for quick cleaning upholstery, carpets, and steps, look to the Dyson V6 Motorhead. It offers a powerful suction while keeping itself lightweight and easy to use.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Dyson V6 Motorhead Review\r\nLightweight, compact, and incredibly powerful\u2014the trifecta of what a cordless vacuum should be, and Dyson placed all of that into the Dyson V6 Motorhead while staying affordable. It's even more affordable on discount, which you can read about on our review on Dyson V6 vacuum with giant 60% off labor day sale.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nTo provide its power the Dyson V6 Motorhead makes use of a Direct-drive cleaner head, which puts out 75 percent more brush bar power than other stick vacuums Dyson has manufactured. This extra power gives it a powerful suction, which pairs wonderfully with its bristles. They\u2019ll drive them deep into carpets to snatch up dirt.\r\n\r\nIts battery life, however, is abysmal; a measly 20 minutes. With that said, the vacuum cleaner is meant for quick cleaning jobs. It\u2019s best suited for hard to reach places. Furthermore, it lacks the mini motorized tool necessary to remove pet hair and ground-in dirt. For that, you\u2019d want the Dyson DC65 Animal.\r\nDesign\r\nArguably two of Motorhead\u2019s best features are being lightweight and cordless. You can take the Dyson V6 Motorhead anywhere; it\u2019s floor to ceiling cleaning, which pairs nicely with its lightweight frame, weighing 4.5 pounds. It can transition from a stick vacuum to a handheld like the Dyson V6 Trigger.\r\n\r\nTo compound its features, additional tools come along for the ride: a soft dusting brush great for keyboards, and a crevice tool that\u2014you guessed it\u2014gets into nooks and crannies. It comes with a docking station you can attach to a nearby wall, which also provides a place to hang additional tools.\r\nValue\r\nGiven how powerful the Dyson V6 Motorhead is, and additional tools that come along, this stick vacuum still has incredible value\u2014even if it has a poor battery. It\u2019s hard to find a cordless vacuum that doesn\u2019t suffer in performance. The Dyson V6 Motorhead is powerful all through its single charge.\r\n\r\nFurthermore, Dyson\u2019s V6 line of products also come with other models for different purposes, without costing too much extra. For example, the Dyson V6 Animal is the same make and model, but includes additional features to handle pet hair, and only for $50 more.\r\nDyson V6 Motorhead Review Wrap Up\r\nWhile the battery life is lacking, you won\u2019t experience power fade; it runs at peak performance up until it\u2019s dead. During its small window of life, you get an incredibly powerful suction on a portable and lightweight vacuum cleaner that handles small jobs beautifully, except animal hair. Still, in return, you get a product with Dyson\u2019s seal of approval.
