I shopped around quite a bit to find a good quality bagless vacuum at an affordable price. This Bissell is exactly what I wanted. It was easy to assemble so don't let having to assemble it put you off. The owner's manual comes with easy directions and all you need is a medium sized Phillips Head screwdriver. 15-minutes from the time I opened the box to the time I started vacuuming with it and discovering all the features! This model was not promoted for pet owners per se but we do have two cats and this unit does the job. Pets or not, I highly recommend it.

This is the best vacuum I have ever owned and I have had an Electrolux, Dirt Devil, Dyson, Shark, Kenmore, Hoover, and a less espensive Bissell. Before I describe this product let me inform you to never buy a Dyson, Shark, or Eureka if you live in the United States because you cannot buy replacement parts. I learned this the hard way. Also, vacuums (no matter what brand) are made to last 18 months to 2 years. Another thing I have learned the hard way. That is why buying a refurbished vacuum at this price is a smart decision and buying a Bissell where you can easily get replacement parts is one as well. This vacuum is amazing. It has all of the cyclonic suction of a Dyson and is much more functional. It is not only an upright but it is a canister as well. It is so convenient to be able to lift off the center and leave the clumsyness of the upright behind. It is the best of both worlds. If you are a pet owner it will change your life ( at least, the smell of your house). It picked up dog hair from my medium pile carpet that my Shark left behind. I highly recommend this vacuum (and I am an avid twice a day vacuumer) to everyone. I also recommend after purchasing it that you order the Universal Pet Hair Vacuum Tool from Bissell (about $35). If Overstock does not have it Bissell's official site does. This set of 2 attachments is amazing for stairs and pet beds. It is several inches wider than the one already attached to the vacuum. Also, I ordered from Bissell for $14.99 a bare floor attachment. I lift off the the vacuum from the center and add the bare floor attachment and it is a light, easy, and effective way to vacuum my wood and tile floors. With the amazing Overstock refurbished price and the very reasonable Bissell extra attachments I purchased there is not another vacuum that can compare out there. For the first time I am completely happy with my vacuum and will replace it with another one of the same when the time comes.

The GV 6 quart vacuum has all the capabilities as a larger vacuum. The suction capacity is great the light weight of it make it easy to handle and carry. All attachment are great quality for what I need them for. I would recommend and have already told a few subcontractors about this vacuum. The price point for this vacuum is great. Its great for commercial and home cleaning. get you one today.

I highly recommend this hose sock for your central vacuum hose. It is very easy to place over the hose and it definitely helps protect our base boards and furniture from the hose, while also protecting the hose itself. It's also a fabulous deal at this price! The guy who installed our central vacuum offered a hose sock at $45 it is was a horribly ugly print from the 1980's. This hose sock is very simple with an understated design.

Where do I begin. I have a 4 year old black lab who sheds more than any other lab I've ever met, as well as a very active 10 month old little boy. I was a little concerned because everyone I know who owns a Dyson has carpet throughout their home, and my home is entirely hardwood. I was curious if it would perform as well with no carpet to suck the dirt out of. I couldn't really find any reviews that were specific to exclusively, or mostly, hardwood floors. So for all you exclusive hardwood floor owners, this is for you! This is the most amazing thing we could have bought. It picks up stuff that the naked eye doesn't even see. I vacuum the main areas daily, with the bedrooms and hallway 3 times a week or so. I start with an empty bin and before you know it, there is dust and dog hair and "free range cheerios" (as we like to call them) that I didn't even know existed all hanging out in the container. The extendable wand is amazing, though I worry sometimes that the hose will crease when I use it at a low angle. I agree with the previous reviewer who said the instructions were a little confusing .. they are photos only and really could use a few lines of text. I wish that the pet hair brush attachment was able to be stored on the machine with other attachments, but it's not a huge deal. Or maybe it can be, and I just can't figure it out! The bin opens easily, though I find a quick tap or two against the side of the trash can helps get all the clumped up dog hair out that doesn't fall out voluntarily. It's not the quietest machine, but it's not the loudest either and the baby sleeps through it. The rolling motion with the ball takes a little getting used .. the first few times I was bumping into everything. Now I'm much smoother with it and it works just like the commercials. All in all, for me and my hardwood floors, this was the absolute best vacuum we could have purchased. If you have pets, or active kids or husband and want to KNOW your floors are clean, this is what you need to buy.

I had the opportunity to try this product at a friend's home after she raved about it. Both of us are pet owners which is always the true test for a vacuum. Since I have purchased this, I have been raving too! Vacuum luv!!

I've been wanting to get a Dyson for so long since I have cats and a dog. I was fully expecting it to wow me, but it didn't. I thought given the Dyson name plus being billed as a pet hair vac that it would suck the living day lights out of carpet. It doesn't. It's really not any better or worse than the other two cyclone vacuums I've had over the years. Furthermore I find the hose/wand to be very difficult to use. It's heavy and awkward for vacuuming sofas...and what to pet owners have to vacuum more often than not? Sofas! Two other negatives are that it doesn't have a very long cord and the small beater bar attachment can't be stored anywhere on the the unit with the other attachments. It is, however, very nice for vacuuming hard floors. It maneuvers very well with the roller ball. All in all I'm glad I didn't spend my money on a new unit!

Received the brown Dyson box from brown, opened it up, vacuum had some wear on the rollers but generally seemed to be in good condition. Put it together and got to work. Whoa! What's that smell?!? Smells kinda like a wet dog. A very strong pet odor. It most likely was coming from the filters. I called Dyson and explained about receiving the refurbished vacuum from Overstock and the horrible pet odor and asked about getting new filters. Dyson rep was not willing to send filters unless I paid retail price for them. I explained that this unit was refurbished and such an odor was unacceptable. The rep suggested I wash the filters in cold water. Ummm, yeah, like cold water is going to remove an odor! Not only that, this machine should have had the filters replaced when it was refurbished at the factory. Dyson rep didn't budge. I said I was going to return the item. Seemed like she could care less. (I didn't indicate I was going to get a replacement). Being a previous Dyson owner, and seeing how well this vacuum worked (in spite of the smell), I called Overstock to inquire about getting a replacement. The O. rep was GREAT! Sales rep had me on the phone all but 2 minutes. In that time she heard my complaint, set up a return with prepaid shipping label, and immediately sent me another vacuum, and didn't even double bill me. Received the second vacuum, put it together and fired it up ... Yea! no odor! Vacuum works like nobody's business! The day before I vacuumed our floors with our old DC17, and this DC41 pulled a surprising amount out of the carpet. This DC41 is suppose to have the most powerful suction of all Dysons. The ball was different compared to the traditional style, but overall is easy to operate. This vacuum is several pounds lighter. The canister is a bit smaller compared to the one on the DC17. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase and especially Can't say much for Dyson's customer service, but Overstock's came through. So ding one star for Dyson shipping out the first vacuum with such a horrible odor. Other than that, it is a 5-star machine at the price overstock is charing for refurbished (plus $40 internet coupon).

Incredible suction! Finally! This awesome little vacuum has given me the edge in the war against pet hair! I'm the owner of 3 cats and a dog, and this vacuum has cut my floor cleaning time in half. Great on my rugs, hardwood floors, tile, and laminate! I'm so glad I no longer have to drag out the broom and dust pan! I can just keep vacuuming from one surface to the next, and I can reach my whole house from one centrally-located outlet! It has also worked great for a quick clean-up of white dog hair on my dark brown bonded leather sofas. This is the first canister vac I've owned, but it's so much easier to maneuver than my old bulky up-right vac...I now have no plans to ever own another up-right! I am happy enough with it overall to give it 5 stars, although I do have a few critiques: As others have mentioned, the cord keeper on the bottom is not terribly convenient, but not awful either - I can definitely deal with it. I'm glad it came with 2 bags because I looked for the required size before it arrived, and couldn't find them locally...Will have to order them online, which is a bit of an inconvenience. I wish the floor sweeper attachment was just a bit wider/bigger to cover more area, but the additional attachments included are great for cleaning fan blades, blinds, etc. And lastly, I notice that the plastic of the hose and the attachments is charged in such a way that pet hair sticks to it like a magnet...I end up having to vacuum a large amount of dog hair off the floor attachment when I'm done vacuuming my rugs, but that's not really a bad thing since it means I'm getting up even MORE pet hair! I can't imagine that anyone would be disappointed with this great little vacuum!

This vacuum really is the best at getting up pet hair and dander! We have two dogs in a carpeted studio apartment, and we bought this vacuum when our old vacuum died. The difference between this one and our old vacuum is like night and day - this Bissell sucks up probably 10x more pet hair and leaves our carpet softer and cleaner than it has ever been. I'm very glad that I decided on this vacuum, and I highly recommend it to all pet owners!

Great for protecting walls, corners, and floors from scratches while hauling around central vac hose.

I recently adopted two very furry cats and was at a loss for cleaning up the fur. Swiffering and sweeping daily wasn't helping the battle. The refurbished model I bought is perfect! No scratches, no dings & works like a dream! I didn't think I'd ever be excited about something as mundane as a vacuum but I can't stop raving about it to my friends with pets! It's lightweight and easy to assemble the first time and sucks up everything and anything. I wish the attachment for getting under smaller spaces was a bit better- the smaller broom head needs a bit extra effort to use- but even the smaller size still manages to get everything up. It's fantastic too at picking up litter that's been tracked everywhere. Simple to clean out too. Definitely recommend the model- pet owners will love it!

I've only had this vacuum for a few weeks but it does the job well. I have tile and carpet in my house and the vacuum does well on both surfaces. In addition, having the detachable canister feature is a bonus. It is a great vacuum especially for pet owners, hopefully it will last for a long time.

Great product--very efficient, even with pesky dog hair, and many assorted tools to get the job done. My husband (the primary vacuum wielder in our family) absolutely loves it and sings its praises every time he uses it. I have to concur that it is easy to use, not heavy, and sucks well. Our dog (a smooth haired fox terrier) sheds so much that he should be bald by all rights, and his hair is almost pine-needle-like in texture, which makes it well-nigh impossible to remove from carpeting and rugs. This vacuum has enabled us to finally triumph over dog hair, at a very reasonable cost to boot. I would highly recommend this product!

This vacuum is amazing. I have wanted a Dyson for quite some time. After doing much research on the models available, I decided to go with the DC25 Animal since we have 2 dogs at home that shed excessively. This vacuum picks up hairs in areas that a normal vacuum could not. I happened to receive it the day before we were scheduled to have our house professionally cleaned. After the cleaning crew left, I decided to run the DC25 over the carpets that had just been freshly vacuumed. The amount of dirt and hair that it picked up was incredible. I would highly recommend this vacuum for pet owners especially. It lived up to its hype and is well worth the investment. Easy to use, easy to maneuver, easy to clean.

I really like the suction on this vac and the wide waist band with velcro. The turbo head does a great job on low pile carpets. Also like that lefties or righties can use the same vac. The floor head only has a small opening but manages to pick up most dirt. The bristles do get full of stuff though. Should have a short cord with plug to plug into an extension cord instead of long cord hard wired.

We have 2 large dogs that shed a lot. We vaccuum every day and this is the first cleaner that has picked up all the dog hair imbeded deeply in the carpets. I would recommend this to all pet owners.

Being an owner of a husky and a pit pull i have alot of hair floating in my house. not only on the floors, but my bed, the couches and even in my car. this is an amazing vacuum. i feel kind of silly for getting so excited over a vacuum cleaner, but i am. i have tried alot of different things made to specifically pick up pet hair. i.e large floor lent rollers, pet hair brush.e.t.c. so i was thrilled when i could vacuum my comforter while still on the bed, and vacuum the couch right before guests came over. also with having a full head of long hair, i have clogged other vacuums before. so this vacuum has stood the task of keeping hair off of everything. definitely a 5 star vacuum for the price also.

As my old vacuum recently died and my cat began shedding its winter coat, it was time to upgrade to the bigtime in vacuum cleaners - Dyson. The day I got this thing I put it to the test and went through every attachment, cleaning everything in sight, including my cats scratch post house thing that she lays on and was coated in her hair. This vacuum had no problem whatsoever picking the hair up off of anything. I cannot recommend it more for pet owners!
