Bought a reconditioned Dyson here a few months ago. Was dead on arrival. Got the runaround from woot! (“call Dyson”) and Dyson (“we don’t support that model”), but was eventually able to get a refund from woot! Quite a lot of money to pay for a reconditioned hand vac that may not work at all and is not confidently backed by the manufacturer or retailer.

Just a word of warning for those who are on the fence… I ordered this exact same model last time around, except they had sent me a DC35 Animal model instead of the DC35 Multi Floor model (purple color).
Now, I am well aware that the Animal model is actually more expensive than the Multi Floor (Google it), because the Animal model (when purchased new) comes with another brush tool. While the actual vacuum itself is literally the same technology, it was misleading because the Multi Floor purple is very different than the Animal purple. And it will say DC35 Animal on the vacuum body.
So… unless you really don’t care about the shade of purple you get, and you don’t care that it reads “Animal”, then by all means, go for it. But it bothered me that they advertise it as the Multi Floor model, when in fact, they sent me a refurb Animal body, with Multi Floor tools. YMMV?
Pretty sure I just have a bit of OCD.
My ex has a Dyson vac and they have decent suction but are very cheap feeling. I own a Filter Queen and would never switch to a Dyson.
My battery died after 1 yr, now it only runs for 3 seconds at a time
We have 2 of these, we’re happy with both of them. We bought the 1st almost 3 years ago, the 2nd was 2 years ago. No problems, they work great and 1 is used daily. Plenty of power.
Even our maid bought herself 1 at Best Buy just so she had it for her other job b/c their small vac was terrible. She didn’t know we got most of the Dyson’s here.
I have a very ancient model- probably from the first production. It still runs perfectly except for the battery. It’s a simple matter to purchase the replacement, and much less than even a refurb model (I want to say about $100); I just haven’t done it yet. So- it still runs valiantly for about 15 seconds at a shot, which is usually about what I need, and the cycle of wanting a new battery yet not getting one perpetuates itself.
Re: animal vs all floors, it is my understanding that the bodies are the same; it is the attachment packages that vary. I also have an all floors upright, which has been trouble-free since the early 2000’s. My main workhorses, though, are a pair of Roombas…
For those who are hoping to remove pet hair from upholstery, the tool in the picture showing pet hair on a couch looks like the motorhead assembly, which is not included in the specs of this vac. It sells on Amazon for $34.99.
Maybe this is a stupid or irrelevant question but…
Do they look as good in real life as they do in the RENDERED pictures? Seriously Woot, you can’t take an actual picture of your product? Maybe one of it actually being used, even in a made-up semi-realisitic info-mercial scene.
The only difference between the Animal version and the Multiple Floor is an attachment. That attachment is not included in Factory Reconditioned Dysons. That’s why we called it a Multi Floor. I believe Dyson uses purple only on the Animal model.
If you’re thinking of buying the above, you might like to look into the DC44 Refurbished ($229.99) on Amazon instead.
However, against pet hair, the Dyson Tangle Free Turbine ($61.99) should work better instead.
(Edited: Sorry, it seem this attachment isn’t compatible with the DC35…)
Similar experience to a few others here. I bought this last time it came up. Worked for a week and dead. No recharging. I actually had a good experience with Dyson customer service and they immediately shipped me a new battery. Has worked just fun since then. But I am pessimistic now as another poster mentioned the battery dying after a year. Refurbished warranties are only 6 months correct? But for now, after the initial hiccup, it is solid.
Heck of a lot of money for a dust buster. Just my 2 cents.
I bought it to replace my dust buster and find it far superior in terms of cleaning capability, power, and ease of cleaning (just click the latch over the bin and out falls all the dirt!). Mine worked like a charm on arrival after the 3.5 hours of charge as directed by Dyson (got a refurb about a week or so ago). I’ve been using it heavily and do not regret the purchase.
Bought a refurb unit earlier in the year to pick up dog hair on tile and wood floors. Yes, $180 is a bit much but the Dyson is far more effective than other $80-$100 units we’ve had in the past. I’m ok with paying a bit more for something that works and so far, so good.
Perfect for NYC appartment. Great customer service from Dyson.
