Frequently asked questions

How often should I clean the filter on V11ᵀᴹ?

The screen on your machine will remind you when it's time to clean the filter. This will usually be around once a month, but may be more frequent if you use your machine heavily. You can find filter maintenance instructions in the machine's operating manual. Washable filter can be reused for the lifetime of the machine, reducing waste.

Operating manual

Does the screen use up the battery?

The LCD screen only uses up to 1.5 watts of power, which won't noticeably impact run time.

Can I use this machine to pick up liquids?

No. Don't pick up water or other liquids with your machine.

Can this replace my commercial vacuum?

No. While the Dyson V11ᵀᴹ Animal offers powerful suction and deep cleaning capabilities to capture dirt and grime in difficult to reach places, Dyson V11ᵀᴹ Animal is designed to be complimentary to your heavy-duty commercial vacuum.
