    • The good, the bad & the ugly
      Verified Purchase

      The good: Excellent suction on carpets getting them deep down clean. The on board tools are convenient & easy to get to & use allowing you to do the whole house in a snap. The ball allows to easy pivoting getting around things. The dust bin is easy to empty. The HEPA filer really keeps vacuuming dust free! The bad: Doesn't include necessary hardwood head attachment for doing non-carpeted areas. There's a beater bar turn off button that is supposed to allow you to do regular flooring but it does a poor job & you NEED that attachment head which is an additional 50 bucks. The cord is short & I end up plugging & unplugging going from room to room. The ugly: The pictures illustrate the looong telescoping wand for great reach. But, it only extends when the vacuum is off! When it's on the vacuum's suction is so powerful that it sucks it back in to itself keeping it very short. My house only has a couple of carpet runners. The rest is hardwood & lanolium flooring making this vacuum a nightmare to use. The additionally purchased head attachment works great! But, trying to use it on the sucked back super short wand can actually be dangerous. I have to where protective boots because as I'm vacuuming with the wand the vaccum quickly rolls toward me hitting me in the ankles. So, as I'm vacuuming I have to either hold the vac in place with one hand & vacuum with the other or brace it with one foot before stepping forward with the other while vacuuming. I made the mistake of trying to lodge it against something to keep it in place so that I could extend the wand to do the stairs. The suction snapped it loose & it came rolling at me like a snapped rubber band throwing me down the stairs giving me a black eye, busting my lip & breaking my bottom front tooth. Overall- If you're only using the vac to do carpeted flooring this vac is excellent. If you need it for anything else make sure you purchase the additional head & have a second person to hold the vac in place as you use the telescoping wand for your own protection.

      Verified Purchase

      The three furballs we have are shedding up a good fight, however I do believe that the Dyson I purchased for my wife is now winning. Now all they need to do is make a product that will suck up the entire cat.

      After our old vaccuum bit the dust recently, we were in the market for a new vaccuum. The first thing you notice about Dyson vaccuums is the price; however, investing in a refurbed Dyson can save you time and money in the future. After waiting a week, my Dyson came and was a snap to put together....literally. Within 5 minutes, you can experience the shock and awe of what your old vaccuum left behind and realize that the way you clean your house has changed forever. The upright release foot mechanism took a bit to figure out (coaster wheels must flip up completely to start vaccuuming); however, you will instantly notice that the ball provides a lower approach angle - enabling you to reach under furniture (our buffet table) that was previously unreachable. It is also funny when you realize that you don't have to move in straight lines anymore... The convenient telescoping wand and attachments on board eliminate any excuses for not being able to remove dirt, dust, debris, and cobwebs and saves me from getting out the Shop Vac I normally used for this task. Another time saver is the ability to move quickly from carpet to hardwood/tile. Normally, I would have break out a mini-vac to chase around kitty litter. With the DC25 Animal, I simply turn off the beater bar and laugh giddily as I now make one pass over it and watch it disappear! Consider investing in a quality product instead of a "that'll do" product. Hopefully, you'll be as happy as I am that you did.

    • Just buy it, you won't be disappointed
      Verified Purchase

      Let me start off by saying I'm a guy. I don't clean much. Don't have extremely high standards when it comes to being clean either. That being said, I do believe in getting what you pay for. I always thought that a vacuum shouldn't be a high priced item. Spending between $100 to $150 ought to do it, right? Wrong. I went through 3 different vacuums in about a 5-6 year span, with each one costing around $125 or so. They all broke down on me, even with what I would classify as light to moderate use (no kids, and no pets for 90% of that time.) After the latest vacuum failed, I said enough is enough. I'm going to buy a top of the line vacuum and it better last for the long haul. So, I picked up the DC25 Animal, refurbished. Looked brand new when I took it out of the box. Put it together, fired it up... and was amazed. Easy to manuever, lightweight, and the best designed vacuum I've ever seen. They didn't forget function though, this thing REALLY picks up! I was borrowing my mother's vacuum and I vacuumed one room with it, then went back over it with the Dyson. It pulled a full containers worth of dirt and carpet fiber up that my mother's $250 vacuum could not. I don't live in a pig sty by any means, but I could actually tell the difference in how much cleaner the carpet was by walking barefoot on it, vs using our old vacuum. At this point, we've had the DC25 for about a year and a half now. No problems with it whatsoever. It has been absolutely perfect, and that's exactly what I expected from a vacuum that normally costs over $500. Guys, if you're reading this, just buy it. You can't go wrong, and your wife/girlfriend will love you for it. Ladies, if you're reading this and having trouble convincing your husband that the price is justified, have him read this. It definitely is. The performance and design are amazing. You'll feel like you're pushing around the Ferrari or Porsche of vacuum cleaners.

    • Dyson DC25 Animal
      Verified Purchase

      Ordering was very straight forward on Pricing on the refurbished model was attractive. Research on refurbished Dyson products suggested that buying refurbished was low risk - the difference is $ 150 and a 6 month vs. 3 year warranty. Delivery was ontime. Unit arrived in a plain corrugated box, definately the box used for shipping the new unit, but without any graphics. All parts, manuals were included. A single page of correspondance advised of the reduced warranty and cautioned that the dirt collector may be scratched (from previous use). No surprise on the warranty statement and the collector looked to be unused/brand new. In fact the entire unit showed zero use. Assembly took no more than 10 minutes. Have only used the vacuum twice, but an amazing amount of dirt was removed from what appeared to be a fairly clean carpet. I would reccomend the refurbished Dyson DC25.

    • We love this vacuum!
      Verified Purchase

      We're a two-cat family and our old Miele was on its last legs, so after a lot of research we bought this vacuum. It was a pain to put together (really bad directions) but you wouldn't believe the amount of crud it dredged up when we turned it loose on carpet that we had considered fairly clean. And no, it doesn't scratch hardwood floors - all you do is press a button to disable the brush mechanism and off you go (the salesman who told this lie wanted me to buy his $800 Miele). Nor is it particulary noisy (after all, it is a vacuum). And it's easy to empty the cannister, too (say goodby to those expensive, messy bags that the dirt poofs out of when you put them in the trash). Is it possible to be deliriously happy with a vacuum? YES, if it's a Dyson.

    Questions & Answers

    • How much does this model weigh? I don't see that information for this one.

      • Hello Stanley, this weighs approximately 20 pounds. Thanks for shopping with us!

    • We just received ours and it appears the button for the detachable piece does not function. It presses down but nothing after. Is there a way to have this fixed somewhere in my location versus having to send the whole thing back?

      • Hello kylelewis32. For assistance with this issue please contact Customer Care at the number below. I hope this helps, thank you for shopping with us! U.S. and Canada Toll free: 1-800-The-BIG-O (843-2446)

    • Why did you choose this product?

      • We just got a second dog and the hair has increased exponentially. My current vacuum doesn't suck in a very helpful way so I poured through the reviews and put my money on this model. It seems to be easy to use and I like that fact that it has a removable/cleanable HEPA filter for everything besides the dog hair that is living in our 2,000 square feet of carpet.


      • great feedback from family member.

      • My friend recommended it to me

      • Because the the reviews.

      • We have had an older Dyson for 14 years and the handle finally cracked, not bad for 14 years :)

      • I've read articles on the Dyson models before and after reviewing multiple sites and reviews, even the reviews that were 1 or 2 star, I felt the positive reviews (and there were so many of them!) really made it seem like a great vacuum. I want one with a canister that is good for cat hair, and also has attachments and a hose. Some of the reviews were contradictory (some saying the attachments were hard to use and some saying they were extremely easy to use).I like that the price of the refurbished is lower and that is also what helped make this purchase. I wanted a vacuum around $200. I haven't bought refurbished before so I guess I'll just have to see if it works out!
