After reading the reviews at Overstock and researching other web sites, to include the Dyson site, I decided to purchase the DC17 Animal (refurb) from Overstock. The price was unbeatable, especially considering the fact that the vacuum came with the standard attachments plus the low reach floor tool, the mini turbine head, spot cleaner, and zorb carpet cleaning kit with applicator. The vacuum looked brand new when it arrived and performed as advertised. This vacuum is absolutely incredible! You will not be disappointed with this purchase. The shedding battle with my Yellow Lab has finally been one!
