  • Very pleased!

    I'm a huge Dyson fan and used my last one for 10 years. I was looking to upgrade and this was exactly what I wanted for an excellent price. I had never bought refurbished but this vacuum was in excellent condition with no issues whatsoever. Very pleased!!

  • Excellent!!!

    We bought an inexpensive ******* and wish I had just bought this vacuum to begin with. I have another Animal. Works great and what a great price. One of my best buys.

  • just what I wanted~

    I love the thoroughness of this vacuum on all my carpet~ I would have given it 5 stars but it is quite heavy and occasionally the beater brush "catches or stalls" for a second and then resumes cleaning. I previously had a Dyson DC 14 refurb I purchased from Overstock which I loved and this one is very similar in size and ease to use. The tools are easy to put in and work very well for heights and under beds. The cord is nice and long and the hose for the attachments is also long enough to reach into higher areas such as curtains or ceilings. I love Dyson vacuum cleaners.

  • Holy Suction, Batman!!!

    This vacuum is the most effective vacuum I've used. Suction is so strong that sometimes it's difficult to vacuum small area rugs because the vacuum holds on so tight. I'm not complaining. I have a dog that sheds like no other. My house now feels cleaner than ever. No dog hair! Packaging was all new. Product felt like it had never been used before. Great price! All attachments included and new.

  • Best thing since sliced bread...

    First things first: my mover STOLE my original Animal Vac, it's that good. He saw it in action, and somehow, after I myself placed it on the moving truck, it was missing when we unloaded at the new house. And I never heard from him again, despite several calls. That is the ONLY reason I had to get a second one; the first was still working exceptionally well, and I was beyond pissed at not having it at the new place. Now, for the review. I have three dogs - a Saint Bernard rough coat (long haired), a Newfoundland (again, long hair and double coated) and the Beagle. I *also* have 10 cats. And I have two horses. As you can imagine, tons of dirt gets into my house, along with a lot of shedding and hair from all critters. And since the litter I use is pelleted horse stall bedding (it absorbs incredibly well, and does not give clumps that stick to things), and it gets tracked all over this place. And most of the summer the windows are open, which allows tons of dust and pollen and various other things in...as you can see, I need a vacuum that will take care of business. I have all hardwood floors (except the bath and kitchen), so getting up the grit and whatnot from boots, paws, and other things which come in is critical in keeping them in good shape. I got the original vac 4 years ago in my old place, and it had carpet throughout the house. I have to say this vac handles BOTH types of floors (linoleum and tile, too) incredibly well. The attachments are easy to switch out, so I can get cobwebs and dust vultures (you know, those not-cobwebs which hang down and lurk you from the ceiling corners) and of course dust bunnies all cleared out very quickly. I also run the vac over the upholstered furniture and curtains, and anywhere else I can. This vac is a sure bet, each and every time. I bought it again, even though it was expensive. I bought it AGAIN. That alone should tell you how good this machine is. I have even used it on my car, and in the bed of the truck, after treks to the barn and beach for a summer ride in the ocean...and it got all the sand, dirt, hay bits, and dried manure out of both car and truck. I'm not impressed; I actually call this my magic machine, and have NO fear of things on shoes being brought into the car or house. I just grab the vac and voila, things disappear. Buy it. You won't be disappointed at all. And if you can score the refurbished units, they are just as good as a brand new one. But don't hesitate; if it can handle all my extreme dirt needs, it can surely handle a normal household's dirt needs, too.

  • Fantastic Vacuume!

    I am extremely happy with my Dyson, and am glad that I decided to buy it. Although a bit concerned about it being a refurbished cleaner, it arrived in spotless condition. It was securely packed with all parts and the directions for assembling were quick and easy to follow. The vacuum worked much better than I'd expected, and although I had just swept my carpets with my old vacuum this Dyson collected so much dirt that I had to empty it twice! I'd recommend this vacuum cleaner to anyone.

  • Dyson DC28 Animal Upright Vacuum (Refurbished)

    I purchased an original Dyson from Overstock.com many, many years ago. It's still go great, but I decided to keep it upstairs and upgrade to the Dyson Animal. I wouldn't have believed it could be better than the original but it is superb! If you like a clean house but love your dogs/cats, you MUST have a DYSON!

  • Bad vacuum

    Just arrived, opened it and used it. The canister is totally loose, wand very old ( so old the sticker was totally worn off ) Doesn't work at all!!!! Extremely unhappy after waiting almost two weeks for this!!! It is nice to save money, but you are taking a gamble as far as what you get.

    I have owned this Dyson for 6 weeks and it's broken. The roller bar stopped turning and the lights blink. So After A call to Dyson, they tell me I can either return it or have it serviced, as it is malfunctioning. I get to the repair center and am told it will keep doing this because the circuitry is in the bottom of the vacuum, and when it gets dirty, it does this very thing. HE then told me it's the WORST vacuum for pets because of that very flaw in design. Pet hair clogs the circuit board. I tried to return it but I am outside the window of return, so I have to fix it and hope it doesn't keep breaking. 5 minutes there and a woman comes storming in with the same vacuum. She's owned it 3 weeks and it's the 2nd time in for the same issue I had. NOT HAPPY! I first bought the DC17 Animal and loved it, but it completely stopped working after 2 months. **** took is back, and I tried the DC33. Hated it. Didn't have the power. So I took that back and got this one which I loved until this. If you really want a great one, I have now learned about the ****. Before you buy ANY vacuum, call a Service center and ask questions!!! They fix them, so they know what they are all prone to. Wish I had done it. Hubby said he will buy me the Salsa anyway. :-)

  • Are all original attachment tools included? If so, what are they? Thanks!

    • This vacuum comes with the mini turbine tool, flat out head tool, combination tool, and stair tool

  • What is the difference between this vacuum and the animal dc14

    • Hello cleanster, Thank you for inquiring about the Dyson vacuums. With the DC14 the weight is 28lb, and the DC28 only weighs 20lbs. The other difference is the DC14 has a carpet and bare floor mode, where as the DC28 actually has an adjustment bar and carpet adjustment for High, Medium and low pile as well. I hope this is helpful. Thank you for shopping with us.

  • Does this vacuum come with the flat head floor tool or something like it?

    • Hello cleanster, Thank you for inquiring about the Dyson DC28 Animal Upright Vacuum (Refurbished). This model comes with an adjustment bar, so you can get really close on hardwood or flat floors, then switch for carpet. It also has different piles height adjustments as well, high, medium and low.

  • Does this come with the mini turbine head?

  • This refurbished item doesnt have the standard Dyson 5 year warranty, just the 180 days?
