Compare Dyson V8 Animal Vs Absolute. The dyson v8 animal is a somewhat better stick/handheld vacuum than the dyson v11 animal. In our tests, there were no tangles with one gram of seven inch human hair and minimal tangles at one gram of fourteen inches.
The entire v8 series sports whole machine filtration technology. The only real difference between the v8 absolute and animal is the absolute includes the “soft roller” cleaning head. There is one dissimilarity between the two, which is a minor difference.
