Without the Mini Turbine Tool can you really call it a DC41 Animal?

The DC41 Animal Bagless Vacuum Cleaner is powerful enough to pickup virtually any animal that gets in its way. ** Animals must be under 10 pounds.

It comes with someone else's pet hair. That way you can see how well it worked for them!

The one time I actually need a digital camera and does Woot offer one? I am dissapoint.

This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

What is the deal with Woot? All they seem to offer across all their sites are Dyson's. Its sad to see this site go so far downhill. There used to be really cool stuff on here to buy. Now its all just Dyson vacumm cleaners.

My girlfriend has one and I've used it a few times.
The plus side is that it works really well, like I would expect a several hundred dollar vacuum to work.
The minus sides are what keep me using the Kenmore canister vac when I do the vacuuming.
It exhausts the air from the bottom out of the infamous "ball". That is an absolutely stupid design flaw in my opinion. Effectively if you have pets and hard woood floors it is airblasting all the hair into the air. Genius my ass. It is fairly heavy as far as vacuums go. The built in extension wand is a PIA to use as well. It has such a strong coil to it that it starts pulling the vacuum towards whatever your trying to stretch the tube out to use.
It's been in for repair to replace the switch (faulty design said the repair guy). The overall repair experience was painless and easy. However, I couldn't tell you how the repair experience is for my Kenmore, because it's never been in the shop. Dyson rant over.

Rats. I actually need this. But all these disgruntled Wooters are making me think I'm chump for buying it.

Maybe I should get it at Costco and avoid the Cone of Shame...

Wife didn't trust refurb warranty..what if? she said...

So we bought the new version of this and it is AWESOME! Best vacuum i have ever used or owned. Our version came with mini turbine tool mentioned above - and its not in the pictures, so maybe the refurb shorts you on that too.

It does take some getting used to, but if paying and extra 250+ for a 5 year warranty and mini turbine tool seems like a waste (did to me) i say pick this up if you have ever thought about a Dyson.

The DC41 is a great vacuum, and is much more worth it than the all floor models or DC25 on previous woots, it has more suction and dirt bin capacity which is what always counts in sucking stuff up.

I was thinking the same thing. Isn't that one of the special features of a pet vacuum? I actually want to buy a dyson, but will just wait till a cheaper one is offered since they they seem to pop up here all the time.

ha...yeah i wanted the refurb. IF mine goes in for service, ill try to make some type of sharpie mark someplace and ill alert the Wooters. Still would rather have spend 300 than 450...but i still got a good deal compared to the 500-600 retail price range, so im happy

Unless it's a Neato, but then again I get more satisfaction from the Neato than the lady friend.

Or Amazon has a Toy Dyson on lightning deals up in 56 minutes that would be cute....

I bought mine refurbished from WOOT! So did my parents.

I remember someone relating a story last time that the reason there are so many 'refurbs' on Dyson is sort of breadwinner-sticker-shock, i.e. Daddy comes home, sees Mommy bought a $600 vacuum, makes her take it back...

So while my canister was a little dingy, it still works like a champ in a (small) house with six miserable cats.

I wish they would just add a VacuumWoot and be done with it. They can alternate days between Dyson and Roomba.

On a completely vacuum-unrelated note, thanks Woot for making this Woot-off last 3 days. I've been quite busy the last two days but I'm off work today and have nothing planned but playing Zelda, watching Home Alone 1 & 2, and refreshing Woot constantly. Hopefully there will be some good deals today, I have more (post-apocalypse) Christmas shopping to do and would love to finish up today.

I have bought two refurbs from woot so far, a canister and a dc24, even got a blueprint special edition on the dc24, and both have worked perfect and showed no signs of wear when opened, both looked brand new just not in a Dyson box.

I completely agree. When i was shopping for my Dyson, i looked at the 41, and found the ball to be more of a con than a pro. It was more maneuverable, but that was about the only reason it was better.


The built in extension wand is a PIA to use as well. It has such a strong coil to it that it starts pulling the vacuum towards whatever your trying to stretch the tube out to use.



That's another reason i skipped the 41 (and one of the major reasons i was looking to upgrade from my Dirt Devil). I got the 17, and it's heavy enough to stay in place when you stretch the extension wand. The only problem is that you get a major arm workout when you try to clean anything above knee height. I'm hoping that through time, the coil will relax a bit.

I had a dyson ball vacuum. The air blows the dirt on the floor around while you're trying to vacuum it up. Super annoying, I took it back and got one of those 7 pound orecks which I love.
