This vacuuum is fantastic! I can use it with the dog in the room (you pet owners know what I mean!) and it has incredible suction. I thought I needed to clean the carpet, but I just needed a good vacuum! It was a little difficult to assemble but well worth the trouble. It has a plethora of on-board attachments which actually make cleaning fun!

I needed a new vacuum after my dads old Kirby died on me. That was a *** vacuum and this one works WAY better! One review says that it almost pulls you along, and they're right. My carpet felt like brand new after the first swipe. It was fluffy and clean. I'm amazed at how full the container was!! (also kind of grossed out I was walking around on that every day!) Very easy to assemble and not heavy at all. Love it!

After 10 years, I decided to go back to a bagless, and am glad I did. This is a real vacuum. It is heavy, though. I like that the brush turns off when using the hose and all of the attachments snap into place so they don't fall off. A flexible hose & useful attachments make the machine easy to use. Switching from floor to hose is so easy that I find myself using it every time I vacuum. It is most impressive when used on my tile. It forms a suction against the floor it is so strong. Amazing. I have come to the conclusion that the bagless styles just aren't tough enough for me. I am a happy pet owner and live in an area where dust and dried grass are year round problems. I have gone through 4 bagless vacs in the same price range as this one in the past 10 yrs. Never again. What a bargain.

Item arrived in a timely manner. Manual was missing and when requested was sent. I would have liked the packing list to include the list of tools and attachments that came with the machine. Had a problem putting the machine together as the parts were just put in a box with no description of waht did what. I immediately broke the belt and as I live 90 miles from town....borrowed a belt (not Kirby) from a neighbor. Maybe on these refurbished machines you could include extra belts. The machine is beautiful and so far works great. Thank you.

The vacuum arrived on time and in good condition but the following parts were missing: surface nozzle, air intake guard, inflator/deflator tool, portable sprayer, portable shampooer. And, yes, the product description says "Kirby G4 vacuum loaded with tools". So far the only thing which was fully *loaded* is my credit card charge. I sent email to Overstock.com CustomerCare with request to mail the missing parts. Now waiting for them to be delivered..

I got my vacuum last night and started on the upstairs where I had just vacuumed earlier after I used this vacuum I got a whole additional bucket!!!!!! I couldn't believe it. Today I tried it on the stairs which I have always dreaded because other vacuums don't have a stair attachment; I used this one and got (ashamed to say) 3 buckets of dog hair and dirt! It works great on hardwood and is easy to maneuver.I have three dogs and my house now looks like a show room house and I have white carpets! Thanks Bissell.

This is the most power vauumi have owned compared to rainbow, orek and kirby. Its much heavier than orek but well worth the trouble because the performance is unmatched

Awesome!! I really love this vacuum. It's hard to believe that it is not a completely new vacuum.

We had a Dyson that wore out and was beat up in under 5 years and needed to replace it with something more durable that would still clean well. We had owned a Kirby many years ago but sold it so we knew these were good vacuums. Since the older kids in our house do most of the vacuuming we definitely needed something durable. After reading a detailed comparison of Dyson vs. Kirby we decided to purchase a refurbished Kirby and are very happy with it's performance. I have no worries about letting my children use it and it is cleaning up after our 2 cats, 1 dog and 7 children quite well!

I have NEVER seen a more powerful AND easy to use vacuum as the Kirby G5 I have just received! If I had ALL the money I spent on every type of vacuum that didn't do what it promised to, I should have bought a Kirby years ago. This vacuum is and does everything it says it can and more....we have pets and I was forever chasing around the fur, stuff spitting out the back...with the Kirby...none of that...not a spec left behind. The suction is so strong on the Kirby, it actually lifted up my area rug and sucked out every single bit of dirt, sand and fur!!!!! AAAHH, clean at last! I can finally say my home is clean after I vacuum with the Kirby G5...I couldn't stand it before as I would vacuum and it wouldn't look like it....NOW, my carpets are down deep clean. As far as everyone thinking that these are hard to manuver.....absolutely NOT TRUE! This is effortless! A HUGE timesaver! I can't express my satisfaction any more...I am so pleased with this vacuum, on a scale of 1 to 100, I give this vacuum a 150! Definitely worth every dime and then some!

Best vacuum I have ever used or owned. This is coming from a women that owns a Kirby. I thought my floor where clean, I was so wrong. This vacuum is a OMG moment when you see how much stuff it sucks up off your carpet. I was in totel shock after I vacuumed with this. I couldnt be happier with the money I invested in this product. I bought a Refurbished vacuum, it came and looked just like a new one.

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.

This is an awesome vacum. Now just to let you know my last vaccum was a kirby sentria which i hated. This is so easy to put together. I love that it glides when on. It really pushes itself and is light weight. The attachments are close by and are easy to use. I feel like the suction is just as good as my kirby. I love the bagless idea. You see what you vaccum up and how much. My only complaint is that the handle seems to carry all the weight when vaccuming. I wish the weight of the vaccum was evenly distributed. Also wish the power button was higher up by the handle otherwise it's great!

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.

Upon arrival the vacuum is packed well to prevent any damage. Once unpacked, you can get it started in a few minutes. The vacuum is powerful in terms of both suction as well as the brush to kick up dust. I dare you to vacuum your house with another vacuum and then try the Dyson. You'll see the difference in efficacy by the amount of dust the other vacuum left behind. The system was originally designed for pet owners. However, you don't need to have a pet to benefit from this engineering marvel. The vacuum features easy-to-clean HEPA filters which are excellent for reducing allergens as well as a canister that is easy to empty/clean. The Vacuum has a super long power chord, which may be considered a benefit as you can use the same outlet for multiple rooms. Yet, as there isn't an automatic retraction feature, it can be cumbersome. Also, the wand, which works when the vacuum is upright, has a head that is a little bulky for my liking. So If you have furniture that is low to the ground, you may not be able to fit it under.

I have a Kirby which is a great vacuum but it is heavy and hard to get from one room to the next and I hate changing the different heads on it. The Dyson is light weight and so easy to swith from carpet to handheld wand. I love this vacuum.

I have had reconditioned items before and so I was not surprised that it worked just like new. It is so quit my other Bissell was a hand-me down from my daughter who got it from a friend. I am not sure how long the original own had it but it worked fine but neither owners have pest so I ended up killing it. So when I saw this one specifically stating Pet I was excited. when I got it I put it together (easy) and swept just a small spot on the floor where my dog usually lays, in a few seconds the cup was full of hair and dirt. I did not even see the hair on the floor. I am really impressed with this pet vacuum. I would love to be able to sweep my dog (have a dog brush that can be attached to the vacuum hose) with it but he does not like sweepers. If you have pets this one will do the work. It even gets aspen shavings and hay that my bunny kicks out. When this one goes I will defiantly get another

We have had the vacuum less than a month and there is a short in the foot switch and the unit will not power up. There is a warranty however, we have to pay for shipping to and from the repair shop and it costs more for shipping costs than to have the vacuum repaired locally.

I HAVE HAD ALL BRANDS ELECTROLUX, PANASONIC,KIRBY AND BISSELL. A FAMILY MEMBER OWNS THE SHARK AND HAS HAD ONE OF THE FIRST DYSONS THAT CAME OUT THE ONLY REASON HE DID NOT PURCHASE AGAIN WAS THE WEIGHT AND PRICE, BUT WHEN HE TRIED MINE HE WENT ON LINE TO ORDER THE SAME MODEL. THIS IS THE BEST VACUUM I HAVE EVER USED, LIGHT WEIGHT AND THE SUCTION IS LIKE NO OTHER, DO NOT HESITATE TO PURCHASE YOU WILL BE SO HAPPY WITH THIS LITTLE ANIMAL, AND I SAID LITTLE SAME SIZE AS THE DC41'S.

DYSON WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE!!! After owning Eureka's, Hoover's, Kirby's that never did the job and struggling with filters and bags that clog with dust and pet hair, I have finally found my savior. What a wonderful vacuum. Picks up pet hair like a dream and so easy to empty and rinse the filter. I raved about it on my Facebook page and found out that many of my friends are already DYSON devotees. And thanks to OVERSTOCK for offering refurbished models at such a great savings. I always hesitated buying a DYSON because of the price but with what I saved at OVERSTOCK, I'M IN LOVE.

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.
When it comes to important modern inventions, the vacuum must be near the top of the list. The vacuum has become such a common household appliance that it is easy to forget it is a relatively recent device. Modern vacuums can't be completely attributed to any one inventor, as they were the product of several different mechanical and scientific advances. From their humble beginnings, vacuum cleaners now come in a variety of different models. From upright vacuums and canister vacuums to the bagless vacuum and handheld vacuum, vacuums have invaded modern life. Here are a few bits of vacuum history you probably didn't know.
