Amazing vacuum


I've had the vacuum for almost a month now. Great set of tools with it, battery life is brilliant and the suction power on the vacuum is amazing. Perfect vacuum for all around the house and handy for cleaning the car as well. Definitely recommend the V8. Moved into a new apartment and this vacuum has been incredible all round.
