  • 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.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Perfect; was refurb'd but you'd never know.
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Exact.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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

    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. :-)

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is brighter in person
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. GARBAGE! 3rd Dyson in a year and this one I'm stuck with because it's a refurb!
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description doesn't tell you that most carpet companies VOID your warranty with this brand of vacuum. The brush bar loads up with carpet fibers.

  • Great value!

    This is the first refurbished item that I have ever purchased. I was a bit hesitant, but after all the positive reviews, I was excited to buy this product! No complaints, the vacuum is awesome and I am grateful for the savings!

    Would not buy again... WAY TOO HEAVY.

  • Great powerhouse of a vacuum

    This is a sturdy powerhouse that works great on all my different carpet heights and bare floors, picks up everything from dust bunnies to stray kibbles, and can be bumped into things without anything snapping off or getting dented. The only cons I know of is it might be too much machine for an elderly person or someone with a lot of stairs, because its not lightweight and I found if I don't change to the correct pile setting it will stick to the floor, it is that powerful. I was a little nervous about it being "refurbished", but it came pristine right from Dyson, not somebody's basement repair shop, and within days of ordering it. It is my second DC28 I have owned, the last one I had about six years and it went to Goodwill really just because I wanted the new and improved DC28. My favorite innovation is the see-through plastic everywhere there could be a blockage, which now makes accidentally vacuuming too close to a sock or a cat toy a minor interruption rather than an all-day mystery. I don't know what the higher-end Dysons do - perhaps fly AND make pancakes - but this is all the vacuum I need. Every time I use it I am glad I spent the extra $** over the competitors in this price range.

    Vacuum worked wonderfully for three weeks and then broke. I had to ship it back to Dyson after spending an hour on the phone trouble shooting with them. Good news is that they are repairing it. Bad news is that the vacuum was so faulty.

  • Great Buy

    Great vacuum. It is really built well. My wife loves the extended wand that pulls out of the handle. For $170 which included shipping, it was an absolute steal!!!!!

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
