Dyson Big Ball & V7 Trigger

Not for everyone, but if you happen to be looking for a Dyson at the moment (which I was), you can get a Dyson Big Ball Animal 2+ vacuum with free V7 handheld Trigger for €330 (including delivery) in their "Spring Sale": https://www.dyson.ie/offers/dyson-offers.html

I've checked on HN/Curry's etc., and it seems that €330 is the current retail price of the Big Ball, while the V7 is €230.

If you were thinking of buying either of these, it seems to be a great deal - but if you weren't, then they are just expensive vacuum cleaners.

Ordered too, have a 10 year old Dyson and been eye out for a replacement - the mini will do for cleaning out the cars so good deal.

Delivery tomorrow at no additional cost too.

Is the main engine of this V7 trigger much different to the V7 with the long tube?

I'm pretty sure they use the same motor (on the website both are listed as having a Dyson digital motor V7....up to 110,000 rpm).

However, I don't know if you can attach a "stick" to the "trigger" version - I suspect it might be possible using some kind of adapter, but I'm open to correction.

I was wondering about this myself.

I have this exact vacuum and it is absolutely terrible. Have it about a year, for maybe a month it was decent, then just basically lost all suction power, we even sent it back to Dyson to have it repaired because we thought there was a problem with it as the suction was so poor. They apparently found nothing wrong with it and sent it back, basically no different.

We're now buying another vacuum (as this basically doesn't function as a vacuum) after dropping €400 on this about a year ago. I would stay away!!

In addition, we had a dyson before this one (an upright one) and it was amazing, loved it and hence we were so enamored with getting another Dyson, this is nowhere near the same level.

Yeah iv'e heard similar about these vacuums before. They just don't do as good a job as a proper corded vacuum. That said if you are in the market for one of these this is a decent bargain.

Contact dyson and get it serviced under warranty maybe

Just for clarity I was referring to the Big Ball Vacuum, I haven't used the cordless one, if it on it's own is worth €330 maybe, but I wouldn't go near this TBH!

We did, they took it back and we received it back from them with no improvement. Warranty was effectively worthless, as the "Service/Repair" did nothing to improve the performance, it's just not a good product.

I wouldn't go near it

To me, Dyson is about practicality and ease of use.

If you have to plug it in and drag it around the place, you're as well off getting a cheaper alternative. IMO.

Ordered yesterday, already delivered - not bad considering the situation we are in with most places as far as deliveries go!
