The desire to have the heavily-promoted high power and suction of a Dyson in a small, handheld model is huge for many home owners that want the same performance on their stairs and in their cars as on their carpets. The Dyson V6 Trigger looks and sounds like it should do the job but, despite having plenty of 5 star reviews and high-end features, there is one important factor to bear in mind.
One of the Most Powerful Cordless Handheld Vacuums
The current range of Dyson products on sale all center around the name V6 – the V6 Animal being the model for pet hair and the V6 Trigger being the handheld option – and V6 refers to the cyclonic moor with its 2 tier system for powerful suction and dust collection. On the highest setting the power and suction has really impressed users and provided a great clean but there is the slight downside of this depleting the battery pretty quickly. Thankfully, the alternative lower setting is still pretty effective and energy-friendly.
While all the talk of the powerful V6 motor may have prospective buyers keen to purchase this model because they think that this is Dyson’s new and improved handheld, it is important to remember that the V6 Trigger is simply the DC58 under a new name. You essentially get all of the great features that you would expect from the company’s top-of-the-line handheld model and they have just changed to name so it fits it with the new range.
This may come as a disappointment to Dyson customers looking for an upgrade but those that are new to the range should still be satisfied with the performance and design. Dyson have always leant towards unusual shapes and the DC58 Handheld has an ergonomic shape and balanced weight for ease of use. Buyers like the size and look of the dust canister because it is easy to tell when it needs emptying but some feel it could be easier to clean out. A surprising number of reviewers have also criticized the lack of a wall bracket for storage. There are, however, two attachments for this machine that help greatly – a crevice tool to make it even easier to get into those hard to reach places and a motorized brush for upholstery.
The Dyson V6 Trigger is still top of the class in Dyson handhelds
The V6 range of cordless uprights is an impressive set of machines and despite the fact that this handheld V6 Trigger is an older model underneath the name change, it does still fit in well with their specifications and styles. The V6 motor and cyclonic tech is the key to this customer satisfaction and while it is pretty certain that a new handheld will come along to improve upon the features of this DC58 – perhaps with that wall mount that everyone has been after – it still holds its own and offers a great clean.
