This is the second refurbished Dyson vacuum I'v bought from Overstock. When I saw the deal on this, I jumped. Even though my old Dyson still works great, in a home with 5 pets, I liked the idea of even more power to keep that pet hair at bay. Now I keep one downstairs and one upstairs. Truly a great machine.

I love the refurbished Dyson! A great way to save a few hundred bucks and still get a great machine. My only "complaint" would be that the ball really heats up, and sometimes when using the wand attachments you need to prop your leg against the ball to make it stay in one place. Other than that, it's a great purchase! I have to empty the canister often, but I don't mind because it's just proof of how much dirt it sucks up.

I will admit that I buy items based on design AS WELL AS efficiency. The Dyson was rated well, and I was tired of big, clunky, ugly, short-lived vacuums. So I bought this 14 lb, "animal", unusual looking vacuum. It performs PERFECTLY, empties its load of cat hair EASILY, stores nicely and can be easily carried between floors. I have found no defects or problems. However, it does seem awfully delicate, and so light. I am hoping that the new materials used in products today are light but sturdy. I have used my Dyson for over a month and it is still a dream. I did get the extra warrantee as I bought a refurbished machine. But you can't at all tell that it isn't brand new and perfect. This is my second Dyson. I bought the "stick" vacuum (no cord, battery charged) for my vacation condo. It is working perfectly after almost a year. Small dirt containers, but not a problem for me. In both houses I vacuum wall to wall carpeting, large throw rugs as well as wood and tile flooring.
We have two collies and my husband and I both have long hair so there is plenty of hair at our house! The beaterbar tends to get hair wrapped around it and I have to go in with a scissors to clean it off every time. Maybe that would happen with any vac. It is certainly powerful and gets a lot of dirt up. I don't mind having to empty the canister often because it means all that dirt is coming out of my floors! It is also easy to see when it is getting full. There is a small attachment with a beaterbar that is very good for carpeted stairs.

I ordered this vacuum on 11/29 and received on 12/3 - fastest shipping ever! It came in a sturdy box that was in great shape and all pieces were packaged very carefully. Though it is refurbished, it looks brand new - no blemishes. Thank goodness for instructions, with those it was very easy to put together in only 5 - 10 minutes. Put it right to use picking up cat litter and dog fur. Some of the cat litter pieces took two swipes but overall the carpet looks great and the vacuum performed very well. One thing to note from the instructions inside - DO NOT use this over water. I only know this from past Dyson's. Any water will ruin them, or at least the standard models. So keep that in mind. Very happy with the vacuum and would recommend refurbished.
I'd been shopping for a Dyson for a while when a friend recommended Overstock. I have no problem with refurbished items since they're put through so much testing. The vacuum is amazing! Even though it's the older model Animal, it picks up every little thing. We have a large dog who sheds quite a bit, so we vacuum everyday. I couldn't be happier with this product or price!
Excellent vacuum! We have a white dog and a house full of dark, hardwood floors and needed a vacuum upgrade. I was slightly nervous about this one being "refurbished" but it arrived in the factory box from Dyson, complete with all pieces, paperwork, etc. It arrives in pieces but I was able to very quickly put it together and was amazed at how well it worked. We have the Dyson handheld (also purchased as refurbished from Overstock.com) for small jobs like the stairs, spills or the car, and knew we needed the upright Animal to deal with the dog. It is fantastic. The attached hose and attachments are easy to use. The canister is ample capacity. It is light weight enough for our cleaning lady to carry it up the stairs. EXCELLENT product. I highly recommend it without reservation.
This is the third Dyson I have purchased. None need to be replaced - just for different locations. There was nothing about this vacuum that made it seem not new. It works and looks like new. I love the way this works - as I have all my Dyson's. I wish there was a way for the attachments to be "on board" or in another neat fashion. But, that isn't critical.
I recently purchased the Dyson DC 40 vacuum and are really pleased with the overall value of the product, being that it is refurbished it looked brand new, no scratches marks or anything to show it is not brand new, the suction is excellent and no matter how clean you think your carpet is there is always something in the canister after you vacuum. I would totally recommend this to a friend it is worth the money and you can't tell it isn't brand new!
I just purchased my refurbished overstock Dyson a few days ago and did not purchase the extended plan...actually didn't view it and it defaulted to decline protection. Can I still purchase the 3yr plan? My item has already shipped and should be delivered in a few days. Thank you!tashamarieconnects on Dec 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

I see continually it has a 180 Manufacturer Warranty, is that 180 "days"/6 months and does that cover parts and labor? When you purchase new they come with a 5 yr warranty parts/labor.tashamarieconnects on Dec 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Hi crossford, you cannot turn off the brush. Thanks for your interest, hope this helps! overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 18, 2013
When I go from carpet to bare floor it is unlike any other vacuum I have used. It doesn't blow dirt around and doesn't lose suction. I no longer sweep I vacuum everything! I dropped dirt on the kitchen floor the other day and decided to give the Dyson a try to see how it would pick up, it left a trail through the dirt the exact width of the vacuum and it picked EVERYTHING up in one sweep!lifesavor4u on Jul 4, 2013
The photo shows using the hose and a tool to clean what looks like smooth surface stairs. My stairs are carpeted. Is the 'mini turbine' tool designed to be used with the hose for carpeted stairs, or would I have to purchase a separate attachment? Thanks.southrngrlathome on Jun 5, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This vacuum comes with a stair tool attachment. You can also use the mini turbine tool to remove pet hair from the stairs.lyss87 on Jun 6, 2013
As someone who has struggled with vacuums and dog hair for the past 9 years, you will not need to buy any extra attachments. This has it all!lifesavor4u on Jul 4, 2013

Photo shows model in purple which is my preference but every other place I have seen this model it is always shown in orange. Can you guarantee me the one I will receive is purple?

I think the color is the difference between the "animal" model and just the regular one....either way, mine was purple, and my mother who also ordered it got purple.swilde on Jun 4, 2013
Mine was purple as well. My friend told me that the colors change as the models vary in specialty.19quilter57 on Jul 2, 2013
