Wow, I NEVER thought I could love a vacuum cleaner like I love this Dyson. I’ve had this beastful beauty for almost a month now. I waited because I wanted to give my honest opinion on it AFTER I’ve had it for a while. It’s still as fabulous as it was the day it arrived.
I’ve been married over 16 years and have gone through at least 8 vacuum cleaners, none of which actually did a good job apparently. When Dyson said they were sending me the Dyson DC28, I researched it quickly to see features. This version, and they have many, includes “Airmuscle”. That means:
- Powered Cam – Only lowers and raises the brush bar instead of the whole head for different floor types
- Pneumatic Actuator – Seals the cleaner head to the floor to create more suction
- High-torque clutch – More torque on the brush bar to jostle loose more dirt
Can’t you just hear Tim the Toolman grunting right here??
I don’t know what all the technical jargon means and I don’t care because IT WORKS! I mean, it really really works. I know this because I used my old crappy vacuum BEFORE using the Dyson, you know, to see what the Dyson would pick up, if anything. The results? Wow, I was shocked at how much dirt the Dyson picked up that my old vacuum did not. In fact, it was half way full. Can you freakin’ believe that??? I vacuumed with my old one, then used the Dyson and it filled the canister half way full!!!
I do have a funny story for ya, well it wasn’t that funny at the time but you see that red push button thing on the clear handle part? It’s the part that removes the canister from the vacuum. It’s also what you push to empty the canister. When pushed, the bottom part of the canister opens up. Well I removed it and headed towards the trash can. I didn’t read the instructions first, and clearly I should have because not thinking, I pushed the red button again and guess what happened? A FULL canister of dirt, spilled all over more floor. Talk about easy to empty for sure..I just should have read the directions before using. I was winging it….but you know what? That Dyson sucked up all that dirt I spilled with no problem. Every bit of it in fact, which made me smile. I was in awe of how well it worked, how easy it was to use, and felt silly at how much I loved it. I can’t help but wonder why the heck I never bought it sooner. Probably because of the hefty price tag of $599 but you know what they say, you get what you pay for and I believe that to be 100% true in this case. You pay a hefty price for an exceptional vacuum that works and works well.
My dad always says there are two things you should spend good money on; shoes and a bed because you spend most of your life walking and sleeping. I’m adding the Dyson to that list because if you have kids, pets or a busy household, you’ll want a kick a$$ vacuum cleaner to help make it easier and just a bit more fun to do those chores!
I tried to find a negative and I simply can’t. I love it that much. I said it on Twitter and I’ll say here. The Dyson DC28 is the BEST vacuum cleaner I have ever seen.
Thank you Dyson for allowing me to review such a find product and understanding why it’s worth the price tag on it.
