The Dyson V6 Trigger cordless vacuum is the brand ambassador of the Dyson line of vacuum cleaners. Even though is not a new product, the Dyson V6 Trigger Pro is still the face of all the handheld vacuums produced by Dyson. This Dyson V6 Trigger review present you with an unbiased opinion and help you understand how the device works.
The Dyson V6 Trigger vacuum is one of the five vacuums produced by Dyson under the V6 series. The others included the V6 Baby + Child, V6 Top Dog, V6 Mattress, V6 Car + Boat. This vacuum exploits the handgun design to ensure that the appliance is comfortable to hold and easy to maneuver. From its weight, design, and color (metallic grey), the Dyson V6 Trigger vacuum mimics the appearance and feel of a real gun, this might have encouraged the use of the name “trigger.”
The Dyson V6 Trigger cordless relies on the action of two-tier cyclones that create suction power through a centrifugal movement. This suction is then directed through the nozzle to lift and suck any debris in its path, this debris is then stored in the transparent dust cup.
The vacuum performs slightly better than average when it comes to cleaning after pets. During our testing, this Dyson handheld cordless vacuum was able to clean 80% of pet hairs. But when it came to removing debris from hardwood flooring and carpet, the performance of the Dyson portable vacuum is considerably average as it struggled with removing debris from crevices, because the suction power was not strong enough.
The design of the Dyson V6 Trigger Pro is aesthetically appealing and natural for the user to hold in their hand as the trigger and other controls are within reach of their fingers. It utilizes a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which takes three hours to fully charge and six minutes to deplete it. The Dyson V6 battery serves some benefits despite its lesser length runtime, such as a longer lifespan, better energy efficiency, and it makes the tool smaller and lighter to hold. As previously stated, the usage is half of what competitors offer, but so is the recharge time as some other cordless handheld vacuums are available for us for 16 minutes but require 12+ hours to fully charge. Therefore, in hindsight, the Dyson V6 Trigger cordless handheld vacuum cleaner is much more efficient with a less waiting time.
The Dyson V6 Trigger Pro measures 16.3 inches long and 6.1 inches tall, making it one of the most compact and portable handheld vacuums in the market. The small size also comes with the advantage of having a light weight of 3.4 pounds. Together, the appliance’s light weight and small size make it ideal for cleaning for long periods of time without experiencing fatigue, and being a cordless device, it ensures flexibility and mobility.
Other Dyson V6 Trigger Pro accessories include a crevice tool, a charger, reusable filter (needs to be washed every month for maximum results), and a combination tool. All these accessories contribute to its commendable function. The combination and crevice tools are helpful for removing stubborn dirt from tight spaces and carpets quicker.
Also, the dirt cup is made of transparent plastic, which makes it easy for the user to monitor how fast the cup is filling and when it should be emptied.
The Dyson V6 Trigger Pro produces less noise than other handheld vacuums. When measured, it was found to produce 81 decibels. This is almost ten units less than the sound produced by a blow dryer.
Dyson offers one of the best customer services in the market. The website is well-designed and user-friendly as shown by the tabs being intuitively arranged and labeled for easy navigation.
The FAQ page is comprehensive, covering most of the issues and queries that new users may come across when using the handheld vacuum for the first time, such as troubleshooting and accessories and parts. The company also provides videos and tutorials across all of its products including handheld vacuums, hair care, laundry, and more.
The support contact details i.e. phone number and email address are prominently displayed on every page for easy accessibility. There is also a live chat room to engage with the manufacturers in real-time should you require immediate assistance.
The manufacturer offers a two-year warranty across all purchases, this is the average time period that other manufacturers offer on their warranties.
Dyson V6 Trigger Pro is an impressive handheld vacuum with its gun-like design, light weight, and attachable accessories and parts. Despite all these, the handheld vacuum still falls short in terms of performance. The vacuum has an average performance in pet hair removal and a below-average performance in cleaning large and medium debris such as sawdust. Despite the use of the crevice tool that comes with the vacuum, it was still a challenge for removing the debris stuck in the crevices of furniture. All factors accounted, the Dyson V6 trigger pro is an average performing handheld vacuum cleaner with a very good design with attentive customer support and a range of useful accessories and parts.
