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.
Ordering was very straight forward on Overstock.com. 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.
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.

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.
Used this vacuum once before main rolling ball stopped working and would not roll. After a call to the Dyson help line I was instructed how to reattach the filter. Seemed ok until I started to vacuum again and the filter separated once again. Another call to Dyson lead to me driving the vacuum to the closest repair location (35 minutes from my home). Where it was determined the filter was old and not brand new as promised and that was what caused the filter to separate. I now have very little confidence in this "refurbished" item and cannot return it to Overstock.com.
Excellent vacuum. Great suction and easy to use. Very easy to maneuver around furniture and picks up anything that gets in it's way. I think they call it the Dyson "Animal" Vacuum because if your pet poodle gets in the way it will suck that up too! I bought the refurbished vacuum not knowing exactly what I would get but I couldn't tell this one from new. No scratches, wear marks or anything of that nature. If you are thinking about purchasing this don't think too hard, just buy it. Great vacuum.
This item was easy to figure out how to put together. I like how small it. The ball in the vacuum helps push the vacuum in different directions easily. We have four girls in our home and two cats, so we have alot of hair. The brush that turns is able to come out so we can dispose of the hair. This is another bonus about this vacuum.We have seemed to find that the vacuum gets hot and needs a small break before vacuuming the whole house. This seems to be the only drawback.
I've had this for 3 years now (bought in August 2009). I was a little worried about getting a refurbished vaccum, but wanted to save a little money and gave it a shot. When I first got it, the extension arm was broken in shipment. Dyson immediately sent a replacement. I haven't had a problem since.
We have 2 german shepherds that shed constantly, and this does the best job at picking up the hair and dander. I like that I can see the hair and dirt that it picks up. We've since replaced the carpeting with hardwoods this year, but this does a great job still. Love the ease in switching to the extension arm to get those dust bunnies that end up in the corners and webs in the corners.
Easy to clean filters, too. I would buy another one in a heartbeat, but thankfully, I don't have to since this is still going strong!
Why is this refurbished DC25 Animal $100 more than the other refurbishe DC25 upright vacuum? They are the same model number and the same color, purple. What are the differences?donnman on Apr 28, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

The refurbished Animal comes with the mini-turbine head tool. If it does not say that it is an Animal, it does not come with this tool. That is the only difference.lyss87 on May 2, 2013
Also, "DC25" is not the technical model number. The model number for each vacuum is listed at the bottom of the description.lyss87 on May 2, 2013
Get the DC 39!! My DC25 fell apart after a year. I almost didn't buy another dyson, but after reading several independent reviews decided to buy another dyson. I love it, gets under furniture much better and stairs much easier.katie3p on May 16, 2013
Great, I love it. Used it a year and refurbished is every bit as good as brand new. Looks brand new. Great machine.quiltinghorses on Jun 13, 2013

When an item is returned to the factory for refurbishment, the item is checked to see if parts need to be replaced. The unit is usually cleaned and returned to factory specifications. Then it is offered for sale, usually for a significant discount. overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 10, 2012
