The Dyson v11 Torque Drive is one of the top performing stick vacuums on the market. It is extremely versatile and easy to use. It comes with a wall mounted charger which allows you to easily store and charge it. It contains a large bin which can be emptied very easily.
Professing to have 20% more suction power than its antecedent (the D10 and victor of our tests!), the Dyson V11 Torque Drive looks good for the eventual fate of vacuum advancement. What else does it do? It consequently modifies its suction to whatever surface you're vacuuming. On simpler to-clean exposed floors the suction dials down, yet increase for profound cleaning rugs. It's likewise the main vacuum we've seen with a LCD screen. The screen reveals to you how much battery power is left, when to clean the channel, if there are any blockages, and how to clear those blockages utilizing a speedy on-screen video cut.
What makes the new Dyson V11 Torque Drive so special?
With Torque Drive cleaner head, the vacuum weighs less than seven pounds and is approximately four feet long. It comes with five additional cleaning attachments: three tools ( mini motorized, combination, and crevice) and two brushes ( mini soft dusting and stubborn dirt) that you can switch out for the torque drive head.
The big advantage about this cleaner head is that it can detect differences in floor surface and automatically change the suction power when appropriate and thus saves overall run time.
This system is called the Dynamic Load Sensor (DLS) and it is unique to the V11. It senses resistance at the cleaner head's brush bar and adjusts accordingly. The cleaner head itself has a tough nylon bristles to remove sticky dirt from carpets and anti-static carbon fiber filaments to catch all the dust hiding in small pockets. This brush bar spins up to 60 times a second as it sucks up the dirt and dust.
The other obvious difference with the normal V11 is the LCD screen at the top of the handle. This LCD screen allows to switch between cleaning modes, informs you of remaining run time, detects blockages and shows you how to clear them, and finally sends reminders to clean the filter.
The Eco mode is made for lighter, lengthier cleanings, while Boost mode provides up to five minutes of super powerful, intensive cleaning. On Auto mode, the V11 adapts to and deep cleans a variety of floor types with a balanced amount of suction power.
On full charge( 4.5-hour ), the V11's battery lasts around 60 minutes, though the actual run time may vary depending on which power mode and attachments are used and what type of floor you use the vacuum on.
After you're done vacuuming, you can push down on the bin's red lever to open the bin and empty its contents directly into your trash can without touching any of it.
How is the cleaning experience with the V11 Torque Drive
To say the Dyson V11 Torque Drive merely completes cleaning would be an understatement - provided it is the easiest, most efficient cleaning experience I've had in a long time, maybe ever.
The vacuum is easy to maneuver thanks to its light weight and pivoting head, and its digital motor , which is more powerful than the Dyson Cyclone V10, and helps to quickly and smoothly suck up particles. Users are generally fascinated with how much it picks up from the corners and crevices of an apartment, from cat kibble to to hair to dust. When targeted to hard-to-reach areas or tight spaces, switching out the cleaning heads is as easy as un-clicking the current one and clicking a new one on.
The fully sealed filtration system captures more than 99.9% of particles as small as 0.3 microns and keeps them in the 0.2-gallon bin, which is easy to empty. It can be emptied straight down when you push on the side lever, you don't have the normal problems with a lid, or otherwise risk dropping an entire bin of dust and dirt onto the ground and ending up cleaning whole day.
The noise problem is not gone but thankfully, you won't have to deal with the noise for too long since the vacuum is so efficient and thorough.
The vacuum's LCD screen is more useful than expected
Dyson incorporated the screen into this new vacuum to help reduce "run time anxiety," which is apparently common among its current users, who tended to overestimate cleaning time and battery usage, and didn't like not knowing how much battery was left.
The screen counting down my available minutes really did help me allocate my time more wisely, and it showed me I wasn't actually cleaning for as long as I thought I would. After finishing up my kitchen and living room, I looked down and was surprised to see the real vacuuming part only took 10 minutes.
Dyson's newest cordless vacuum isn't cheap, but you'll be the most excited you've ever been to clean your home if you have it on hand.
If you don't want to spend $700, you can still get one of Dyson's older models and be pretty happy with it. However, the V11 Torque Drive has so many cool new features that the upgrade will be worth it. You'll spend less time chasing dust bunnies, less time stressing over the battery life of your vacuum, and more time enjoying a clean home.
