Summary: The DC23 Motorhead is the best vacuum cleaner I have owned. We had previously bought the upright model and thought the suction was great but found the 'ball' part of the cleaner too big to get under furniture and even though the handle lifted off, it was very diddly to use.
Summary: Get a different Dyson or a central vacuum. Do NOT buy this series of model! I vacuum the house less often now because I hate using this machine - it's ironic that I use the Swiffer products more now instead. I should have tried using a demo model somewhere before ordering it - so it's my fault.
Summary: This Dyson model is a terrific design and my wife prefers the portability to use on the stairs over any other Dyson she has used. I recommend the refurbished Dyson seller. I would buy from again if necessary. Product arrived very quickly.
Summary: This vacuum is, as the title states, amazing. Full uninterrupted suction power and I can't even tell that it was refurbished. I've been using this since I bought it to clean my floor, mattress, and just about everything else that may have had dust trapped inside.
Summary: I was very hesitant and picky about purchasing a new vacuum, especially a refurbished one! However, after hours of research and headaches I decided to purchase the DC23 Canister Vacuum, and I am happy I did. I have a rug that I absolutely love, but it sheds uncontrollably!
