Emptying the dust bin quickly and easily
The V8 Animal dust bin is 25% larger than the V6, filling at a modest 500ml (0.13 gallons). Even with the increase in size, it's still fairly small, and you will have to make extra trips to the trash can if your house is extra dirty. This dust bin got a surprisingly great overhaul from the previous generation of V6 dust bins in terms of simplicity and ease of use. Simply lift the small red handle up and bottom of the dust bin will fly open, releasing all the dust and debris directly into the trash can, without getting your hands dirty. The see-through canister design is great because you can see what is being picked up and how much.
Emptying the bin is quick, convenient, and clean. Should any hair get wrapped around the collector head refusing to drop down, simply shake the container or reach in and pry it off. While the design is great, points are removed for its small size.
If you're looking for a larger dust bin, you will have to skip the V8 model and go for the V10, which provides a 50% larger dust bin than the V7 or V8. However, keep in mind that the V10 and V11 dust bins aren't as simple to empty - they require removing any attachment before you can empty it. So while the V8 dust bin is smaller, it's also more convenient to empty.
