The Dyson V7 is the base-line model, but looks just as cool as the more expensive models, and has the same powerhead design that cleans carpets better than the competing cordless vacuum cleaners. It’s almost half the cost of the newer V10 model, with the main difference being the battery life is 30 minutes rather than the 1 hour of battery life the V10 claims.

The V8 has 15% more suction power than the V7, and the V10 has almost 40% more suction power. If you can’t afford the extra cost of a newer Dyson stick vacuum, the V7 is a reliable, strong choice.

Our Experience

After searching through countless sites trying to determine the best cordless vacuum available in Canada, the Dyson V7 Motorhead was the stick vacuum that my family ultimately decided to buy. For us, it was the perfect balance of features, reliability and durability from the Dyson brand, and also at a reasonable cost.

Our only regret is that the v7 cordless vacuum doesn’t come with a hardfloor cleaning head, like the V8 absolute does. A little bit of research online turns up that you can buy a brand new, Dyson soft roller head for about $100. Even with that extra cost, it would still be $100-$200 cheaper than the V8 Absolute that comes with the hardwood floor cleaning head. It might be an option to consider if you are trying to keep costs down, and a V7 motorhead stick vacuum has all of the features you need, and all of the battery life desired.

Dyson V7 Motorhead Reviews

Helpful Habitat ranked the Dyson V7 Motorhead as the #3 on their list claiming it was the 'Great choice, if not bound by a budget' in their product review. [August 2019]
They really like the Dyson V8, which is the successor to the V7 cordless vacuum Canada, but for the price, they like the Tineco A10. Plus, their complaint about the Dyson is you need to hold a switch on as long as you are vacuuming, rather than just a switch that is turned on or off.

The thicker the rug, the greater the Dyson's advantage over the competition
