Dyson's newest stick vacuum adds a powered brush roll to help it agitate dirt and compete with uprights at fine particle pickup.

Both the v6 and the v6 Motorhead are easy to use on any surface.
The cleaning head differs between the v6 and the v6 Motorhead. The Motorhead is on the right, with a wider cavity and powered brush roll.
With a variety of tools that are easy to snap in place, the Motorhead can be customized to fit a variety of jobs.
You can use the mini-motorized tool for upholstery.
Press the Max button on the back to give the Motorhead an extra push of power.
The 0.12 gallon bin fills up quickly. If it overfills, you'll need to dig to get it clean.
The Motorhead's powered brush roll helps with small particle pickup, but it still falls short of a full-sized upright.
