  • 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.

  • 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!

    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. excellent
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? excellent
  • 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.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? it looked just like the picture
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. the quality was beyond what I expected. It picked up so much dirt I was astonished at what had been hidden in my carpet.
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? the description was accurate. It works extremely well.
  • Vroom ~ With a kick!!!

    Go Refurbished. The refurbished model is over $100 less and the machine looks and works like it is brand new. I have four dogs and a cat and the hair and dirt that this machine continuously pulls out of my carpet is amazing. My husband - who hates vacuuming....... loves this machine and shows me how much dirt it sucked up each time he uses it. The suction is great and I have already saved a small fortune in purchasing bags. I don't mind spending the $$$ for something that is worth it ~ this product ~ is worth every penny.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
    • How is the quality of the product? Excellent
    • Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
  • 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.

  • 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.

    You'd never know it was refurbished. It was just like new.

  • Sexier than the old Dyson

    Buying refurbished is always the way to be smart about saving money, while still affording a higher end product such as a Dyson Vacuum. Well, okay, so I didn't get the fancy "Dyson Labelled" box that would have come with it. Big deal. Came very neatly and securely packaged. It had the instruction manual and a few additional attachment pieces. All is well in the wild world of keeping my house clean and vacuumed. I bought this to replace a heavily used dyson of approximately 8 years. Sadly, it was time for that to go away due to a divorce, but since I loved it so much, I went with this model as its replacement. It's awesome.

  • Awesome vacuum at an even better price

    After much research I knew I wanted a Dyson vacuum cleaner. Since I have 2 children, 1 dog and 4 cats, the "Animal" was my obvious choice, but the price seemed prohibitive. I was unsure whether a refurbished vacuum would live up to the mess, but I'm happy to say that it more than does. If it wasn't for the unmarked box, you would never know it's not a new vacuum. It looked, felt, and certainly performed better than I could have imagined! I could absolutely recommend this vacuum cleaner to my friends.

  • Excellent vaccum

    Made our 14 year old carpet almost look new! Well thought out design (no surprise, tis a Dyson) and a great deal as a refurb.

What is the difference between this vacuum and the animal dc14 cleanster on Sep 14, 2013
Subscribe to Answers
Answer This Question

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. overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 19, 2013
