No one is needed $ 250 vacuum cleaner, but a cordless vacuum definitely makes life around the house easier. Intimacy with tangled power cords with furniture (and legs) quickly gets old, and cheap vacuums sometimes struggle to properly clean carpets. This is why we like Dyson’s strong and chic stick wacks, but they are expensive. The V8 motorhead is an older model, but with a $ 130 discount on the sticker price, it’s a great way to get into cordless vac life.
The V8 has been scrapped by the new Stick Vacuum, but it’s still a step-up model, much cheaper than the $ 500 Dyson V10. Like all Vyson Dyson sticks in the V8— Vacuum, it is converted into a handheld vacuum at the push of a button, so you could say it’s like getting two vacuums in one. The target is usually 380, but current sales bring it down to $ 250. Target says this cell will end on Saturday.

Is V8 Motorhead Origin Right for You?
I recommend the V8 as the best budget option in our Best Dyson Vacuum Guide because I made it under hardwood floors and deep carpets and it almost always gets dirty and crumbly in the first pass. Yes, the more expensive and newer Dysons have stronger motors and fancy dust-scanning features, but the V8 offers similar performance for much less money.
The V8 motorhead lasts up to 40 minutes on the original charge, weighs just over five pounds, has a shed, and has a modular design. You can remove the wide, motor-driven floor-cleaning head and replace it with the included combination tool attachments for narrow spots with the push of a button. It comes with a charger and a wall-mounted dock so you can hang it from the drywall.
This is the downside of the V8’s Motorhead Origin version Only Those come with two attachments. These are the most useful, but you need to shell out for others. For example, the Cravis tool is convenient for narrow spaces, and the standard Dyson V8 motorhead includes it; You can now snatch it from eBay for another 30.
