The Dyson DC28 Animal is the perfect HEPA vacuum
cleaner for an allergy sufferer or pet owner that needs
maximum cleaning power. This vacuum is recommended for a
large home or apartment with wall-to-wall carpeting, but
with Dyson's new technology this vacuum is also well-suited for smooth floor cleaning. This patented design allows the brush roll to lower while pushing the cleaning head into the carpet to
give you a deep clean. With push button control you can set the
DC28 to clean high, medium, low pile carpeting or smooth flooring with ease. The new Airmuscle
technology increases the suction power without increasing the weight of the head of the vacuum.

Unique Dyson Product Features
Lifetime HEPA filter
The Dyson DC28 Animal vacuum has a washable HEPA filter which lasts
for a lifetime. No expensive filters to replace, just
clean air and more clean air! Additionally, this vacuum
cleaner is approved for allergy sufferers by the British
Unique Clear Dust Bin The innovative design of the Dyson's clear bin is
great because you always know just how well your Dyson
is working! One quick glance and you can tell when it's
full, and it is easy to empty. Completely hassle-free,
especially since there are no bags to buy, ever.
High Velocity Air Intake
On the DC28 Animal, intake nozzles on the tools direct high velocity
airflow down into the carpet pile. This means that
you pick up more dust, dirt, and debris. The directional
force of the air agitates and dislodges all the nasty
stuff hiding in your carpet. The added Airmuscle technology furthers already leading deep carpet

I'll start by saying that I did not buy my DC28 from Achoo Allergy. I've had nothing but the best of service and products from AA. That said, I did buy this machine from Sears on sale in the fall of 2011. I've had nothing but problems with it ever since. and from other site reviews, I'm not alone! The clutch for the head has inherent problems and wears out quickly with regular use. It starts out a powerful joy to use, but in 6 months - junk!grinding sound out of clutch, NO suction, NO self propel motion. It is like pushing an anchor around Dyson had me send it in for repair, it came back working properly, and was back again to the same piece of junk within 6 weeks. I'm waiting to see what Dyson will do a second time.
And, the reason I'm on Achoo Allery right this moment is to look at purchasing a totally different machine. I'm done with Dyson. This was my second Dyson in 6 years. That's a lot of $$$$$ to sweep the floor.

Customer Q & A
Q1: my dyson dc28 animal will not turn on. what do I need to do to solve problem?
A: First, check the filters. If they've not been washed/rinsed in a while, do so. Let them dry completely then reinstall and see if that helps. While they're drying, check the lines for blockages. If this doesn't help and it won't power up at all, contact Dyson direct at 866-693-9766. It could be an electrical issue, but a Dyson rep and help you down the right road. Hope that helps!

Dyson DC28 Animal
The new Dyson DC28 Animal Airmuscle is one of the newest and most unique upright vacuum cleaners Dyson has recently
introduced. Catering to customers who prefer traditional wheels over the Dyson Ball technology, the DC28 Animal improves
upon older version of Animal with three new features to maximize cleaning capability. This newest incarnation of the
Dyson Animal delivers cleaner surfaces at a price comparable to the other uprights in the Dyson line.
What I like about the DC28 Animal
With the DC28, Dyson introduced three new features to increase cleaning capability. First, a pneumatic actuator moves the
cleaning head. How this helps is when you are using it on smooth flooring, the cleaning head is flat to the smooth surface.
This creates a better air vacuum to pull up dirt and debris. On high pile carpet this same feature pushes the cleaning
head into the carpet to allow for better penetration and deeper cleaning.
The second feature works hand in hand with the
actuator. A powered cam adjusts the brush roll for optimal cleaning across multiple surfaces. This cam actually lowers and
raises the brush roll. On the high pile carpet setting, the cam actually pushes the brush roll into the carpet so the bristles
penetrate further and can dislodge dirt, dander and other particles lodged deep within carpet. Lastly, a clutch system allows
the DC28 to deliver the same great suction and power whether the brush roll is deep cleaning dense, high pile carpet or scooping up
pet hair on low pile carpet. These three advances combine to form what Dyson has termed Airmuscle Technology.
Fingertip controls are a step up on this Animal. There are four separate setting that adjust the DC28 for cleaning surfaces ranging
from smooth floors to dense, high pile carpet. You can also control the suction by setting the unit for smooth floors. This
disengages the brush roll and provides straight suction best suited for cleaning tile, linoleum, laminate and hardwood flooring.
With a washable HEPA filter and powerful suction, the DC28 is ideal for pet owners. Pet hair can be some of the worst
things to clean, but the Dyson Animal tackles pet hair with ease. Dyson's patented Root Cyclone technology coupled with the
new cam, the DC28 Animal has first rate suction that will last the life of the vacuum. The mini turbine head is ideal for
steps and other places pet hair tends to accumulate.
What I do not like about the DC28 Animal
Like most Dyson vacuum cleaners, the DC28 is not what I would call a small vacuum. It lacks the slim design of other
upright vacuum cleaners. Dyson addresses clearance issues by coupling the quick-draw wand with the Flat Out head attachment.
Stability has traditionally been a concern with Dyson uprights, and the DC28 Animal is no exception. While using the wand
this can be an issue for some.
Overall, the DC28 Animal is a much needed improvement over the
previous Animal models. This vacuum cleaner is extremely powerful and works remarkably well for pet owners. You might be
surprised at the dirt, dander and hair this vacuum pulls out of your carpet. An array of accessories and attachments
gives this Animal a tremendous amount of added value as well as a wider cleaning range. This upright, coupled with a 5 year
warranty and the added convenience of no bags or HEPA
filters to replace, is ideal for asthma and allergy sufferers with or without pets.
