Roborock h6 vs Dyson v11
As we all clearly understand, the best attraction of the stick vacuums is the lack of cords. It`s such a pleasure to be able to clean wherever you want without constant hindrance and entanglement.

Besides, you don`t have to sacrifice suction power, as modern models are by no means inferior to corded vacuums and sometimes even surpass them.

Dyson has long proved the reliability of its products and gained unconditional trust even for the new devices. Chinese Roborock is a relative newcomer on the market, which wins popularity by a combination of efficiency and budget price.

So, let`s see which cordless vacuum model will win this time and whether they both are worth investing in.

In this Roborock H6 vs. Dyson v11 review, we will meticulously study all cons and pros of the new stick vacuums and also see their main similarities and differences.

Main Differences Between the Models

While looking at the vacuums, one can find several differences that influence the cleaning results.

So, since they are essential for operation, let`s list the most crucial of them:

  • Both stick vacuums are compact and lightweight. However, the difference in the weight between them is worth noting. Roborock H6 has featherlight 3 pounds. Dyson v11 is twice heavier, weighing 6.68 pounds.
  • Roborock and Dyson come with similar sets of nozzles, but each kit has separate unique accessories. Thus, Dyson works with a combination tool and stubborn dirt brush for coarse pollution. Roborock H6 uses a special flex tube to complement handheld nozzles and an additional motorized soft floor roller head for hard floors.
  • Dyson 11v Torque Drive is a more powerful vacuum, which comes with a 525W digital motor and generates 185 AW suction. The H6 uses a 420W motor for 140 AW suction or 25000 Pa.

  • At the same time, Roborock H6, equipped with a unique Lithium-Ion Polymer battery, can last up to 90 minutes in Eco mode. Dyson cleaner runs for 60 minutes.
  • Torque Drive dust cup contains 0.75L, while Roborock H6 has a 0.4L dustbin.
  • The stick vacuums produce different noise levels. The H6 is 72 dB loud, and the v11 can reach 78 dB.
  • At the moment, the Dyson v11 vacuum costs $630-$670. We expect that the price of the Roborock H6 will be $150 less compared to the rival.

The vacuum is genuinely multifunctional, as its kit includes accessories for all surface types and degrees of pollution.

Thus, we have a choice between two main motorized rollers. A carpet brush with a 50W motor and anti-static bristles rotates and gently lifts the dirt from the pile. It also catches hair, doesn`t allow it to penetrate and clog the vacuum.

The second brush is a soft floor brush roller for hard floors, which collect large and fine debris, never harming the surface.

The kit also provides four accessories for handheld work mode. They are:

  • a dusting brush with long bristle that sweep dust from the tightest spots;
  • a motorized mini-brush for soft areas and upholstery;
  • a crevice tool for narrow and deep locations unreachable for other nozzles;
  • and a special flex tube, which is compatible with a dusting and crevice nozzles for the most complicated areas.

Apart from the Torque Drive, the kit includes:

  • a mini-motorized tool for spot hair cleaning and soft furniture;
  • a combination tool for local vacuuming of different debris;
  • a crevice tool for recesses and gaps like between walls and furniture, etc.;

Tests on Different Types of Floors

In this unit, we`d like to note that the stick vacs show comparable cleaning results on hard floors, carpets, and upholstery.

Hard Floors

Hard Floors
Hard floors, including tile and laminate, caused no problems either with fine debris or with large particles. We tried coffee and cereal, so both vacuums collected 100% of pollution even from the tile seams.

Soft Furniture and Nozzles

Soft Furniture and Nozzles
Wide choice of nozzles allows Dyson v11 and Roborock H6 to deal with any soft furnishings, cushions, and curtains. To test both devices, we took a car and tried vacuums on its two seats covered with sand. Crevice tools and mini-motorized brushes turned to be the most useful nozzles of the kits. Here, we can say they collected about 98% of the dirt.

However, each vacuum hid its trump in the sleeve. Dyson`s stubborn dirt brush allowed us to eliminate spots much faster and with more energy saving. At the same time, though the Roborock took more time to deal with old stains, it was much more convenient in crevice vacuuming. The flex tube reached deeper folds.

Carpets

Carpets
Traditionally, carpets are considered to be the most challenging floor type, but at the same time, it`s one of the most popular coatings. To test the vacuums on this surface, we covered a medium-piled carpet with coffee and took two dogs` pads.

Auto Boost systems significantly contribute to the speed and efficiency of vacuuming. Within five minutes, both Dyson v11 and Roborock H6 collected the majority of contamination. Visually, we noticed no tracks of ground coffee, so the cleaners eliminated no less than 95%.
Though being as effective, hair cleaning took a bit more time.

So, on Max modes, the vacuums needed about 7 minutes and the usage of mini-motorized tools for extra dirt. However, hair didn`t clog the devices, and bristle heads were easily cleaned. When the first stage cleaning eliminated 90% of hair, mini-motorized tools helped gather an additional 5%.
