Review: Dyson DC28 Animal

 

For pet owners, the Animal is man's second-best friend. This sucker picked up an astonishing amount of fur from rugs that looked fairly clean at...

Brush bars are accessible without tools. The 17-foot hose with mini brush bar allows for remote cleaning without lugging the whole rig around

Power button easily confused with the canister release. Entire cord must be unwound to use the wand

Dyson DC28 Animal

 

The Dyson DC 28 Animal may be expensive, but it provides a lot of performance for the money.

If you've got carpet, you've got little time to snap up the DC28.

Dyson DC28 Animal Upright / Bagless / Silver-Purple

 

A high price tag for a vacuum, but it provides a lot of performance for the money

Strong performance on all surfaces; Simple and straightforward to use

Very noisy and energy hungry; One of the most expensive we’ve seen

Dyson DC28 Animal Review

 

The Dyson DC28 Animal is another Dyson machine made for households with pets. On average it gets very good consumer ratings. There are occasional grumblings – mostly related to the machines weight, but consumers are generally thrilled with this unit’s...

Very powerful suction- Four push-button height settings- Good at vacuuming up pet hair- Washable HEPA filter (easy to wash and re-insert)- Dirt canister is easy to empty- Good on both carpet and bare floors- Long 35 foot power cord

Heavy- Expensive- Can be hard to maneuver for some- Only room for 2 tools in on board tool storage

Consumer ratings for the Dyson DC28 Animal are provided in the table below and indicate, for the most part, significant satisfaction with the machine. In this case the outlier seems to be Amazon where reviews are a little lower than the average.

Dyson DC28 Animal

 

If you love pets, but are unhappy with an endless coating of messy pet hair on your clothes, carpets, furniture, draperies and the inside of your car, the Dyson DC28 Animal is designed with you in mind. Not only will this zap that annoying pet hair,...

This powerful bagless vacuum is especially good for picking up pet hair

This does not have the trademark Dyson ball for maneuverability

This vacuum provides great suction power, a HEPA filter and 16-foot telescopic wand.

Works well, some issues....

 

I called Cust. support and they walked me through releasing the base (use a butter knife). Then they set me up a repair ticket (20 mi. to the nearest repair center) for the bulb. Will see how long the new one lasts (umm... LED anyone?). I have mostly...

Excellent suction, picks up everything on the floor (pet hair, dander, etc.). Adequate set of accessories. Good price (NewEgg Black November 20% Discount)

DO NOT plug it in with the power switch on! FIRST TIME I used it, I accidentally pressed the power button while relocating, plugged it in, power indicator bulb burned out (surge). This is also part of the "blockage" warning system (light flashes)....

Wonderful Vacuum!!!

 

I have had this Dyson DC28 Animal Vacuum for just over a year now and I cannot say enough good things about it. My only complaint is that the front is a little big and does not fit under furniture quite as nicely as I would like, but the overall...
