Who should buy Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead

  • If you are looking for a lightweight cordless vacuum, the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead might be the one you are looking for because it only weighs 5.5 lbs.
  • If you have low-pile carpets, the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead might be suitable for you because the direct-drive cleaner head, which is the main floor nozzle of the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead, works best on low-pile carpets.
  • If you have a limited budget and you are choosing among the three versions of the Dyson Cyclone V10 which are the Absolute, Animal, and Motorhead, the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead might be a better choice because it is the least expensive among the three versions of V10.
  • If your house has a lot of obstacles or furniture, the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead might impress you because you can easily clean around obstacles, furniture, and corners. Even if it doesn’t have wheels which is a great help in moving the vacuum, the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead still has excellent maneuverability.

Who should NOT buy Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead

  • If you have mainly hard floors, the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead is good to use, but if you can spend a bit more, you might want to try the soft roller head which is an excellent nozzle for hard floors. You can either separately buy the soft roller head and use it in the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead or buy the Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute that comes with more cleaning attachments and one of them is the soft roller head.
  • If you live in a large house and are the type of person to clean the entire house in one cleaning session, you might be disappointed with the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead because it has a short battery life, especially in the high suction mode. Instead, you might be more interested in the Tineco PURE ONE S12 or the Shark IZ251EU that comes with two removable batteries so that you can easily replace the drained battery with a fully charged one and continue with your cleaning.
  • If you have noise sensitivity and are looking for a cordless vacuum that produces a low noise level, you might be irritated with the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead, which has a sound level of about 87 dB. You might want to check the Dreame V11 with a noise level of 72 dB or the Tineco PURE ONE S12 with a 71 dB noise level.
  • If you are looking for a cordless vacuum with more cleaning attachments and a larger dustbin, you might want to check the other versions of the Dyson Cyclone V10, which are the Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute and the Dyson Cyclone V10 Animal. Both of these versions have a larger dustbin with a capacity of 0.76 L compared to the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead that has a 0.54 L dustbin. The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute comes with six cleaning attachments while the Dyson Cyclone V10 Animal has five cleaning attachments.

Verdict

This is our verdict of the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead based on several hours of research of reviews from both experts and users.
Updated 16-08-2021

The Dyson Cyclone V10 has three versions which are the Absolute, Animal, and Motorhead. The Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead is the least expensive among the three versions, which means it lacks some features that the other two more expensive versions have. However, all three versions still have the same functionality and suction power. They only differ regarding the dust bin capacity and the included cleaning attachments.

The Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead comes with three cleaning attachments: the direct-drive cleaner head, crevice tool, and combination nozzle. The direct-drive cleaner head is the main floor nozzle which works well on hard floors and is best for carpets. Among the three versions, only the V10 Motorhead comes with a direct-drive cleaner head since the other two versions, the Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute and Dyson Cyclone V10 Animal, have a torque drive cleaning head instead. The direct-drive cleaner head can also be seen in the Dyson Cyclone V7 and Dyson V8 Absolute. Still, even if they have the same direct-drive cleaner head, the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead has a stronger suction power since it has a maximum of 140 AW suction power. In contrast, the Dyson Cyclone V8 has a maximum suction power of 115 AW.

Another downside of the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead compared to the Absolute and Animal is that it has a smaller dustbin which means you might have to empty the bin more frequently. But on the brighter side, it makes the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead have a lighter weight than the other two versions. Because of its lightweight, it makes it easier to maneuver and move around the house without straining your arms.

The Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead has a HEPA filter that the Dyson Cyclone V7 doesn’t have. It cleanses the air coming out from the vacuum, which is great for those with dust allergies. Like most Dyson cordless vacuum products, the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead also has a wall-mounted bracket which makes it easier to store since the V10 Motorhead cannot stand on its own.

Vacuums are naturally noisy, but there are cordless vacuums that can minimize their noise levels, such as the Tineco PURE ONE S12 and the Shark IZ251EU. However, the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead is not one of them since it has a noise level of up to 87 dB, which might be irritating if you have noise sensitivity.

A common complaint of the Dyson cordless vacuum products is their trigger switch which is the same in all of them. To operate the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead, you have to press the trigger switch the entire time you are using it. The purpose of this type of trigger switch is to optimize the battery life, but some may find this tiresome since you have to hold the trigger switch constantly. Other cordless vacuums have a lock button feature and you can turn the cordless vacuum on or off with just a single touch, like in the Dreame V11.

Overall, the Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead is a bit expensive but an excellent choice, especially if you have low-pile carpets. Its main floor nozzle, and the direct-drive cleaner head, can efficiently pick up deeply embedded specks of dirt on low-pile carpets.
