Dyson DC01 Design
« on: March 14, 2017, 04:34:42 PM »

Here's an interesting design video about the DC01
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

Yep! It's quite a good design for their first vacuum I think, people still use them in 2017 I bet.

These things are such solid tanks

Very Similar to the 04, which is kinda similar to the 14:

And we all know the DC14 are "Tanks" Just with a poor engine expectancy

Ikr, the DC14 is THE tank and king of the Dysons, just need a longer lasting motor in them!!!

DC33's are crapping themselves already (one of the worst Dysons imho for reliability) whereas the DC14s still go strong

Why are the yellow bits most important? It's just to make it look nice. DC01 also came in blue, the absolute+ had purple bits and the DeStijl had red!

I have two questions here:

I've heard the 14 motor life mentioned a few times - what fails with them?  My own is 8 years old....

Also, what is the general issue with the 33?  I just fixed one up for my brother in law.  It seemed similar enough to the 14 to not be an issue?

I know what you mean, it's the same motor as the 04 and 07, pretty reliable unless the machines blocked up or it's had alot of use/runtime, just like any vacuum really...

Heh, ok.  Mine has had decent run time but I've replaced the HEPA filter three times over the life of the vac and wash the prefilter and cyclone regularly.  I'll make sure my brother in law does the same with his 33 :)

We have no problems with either. Fitting decent motors is the key. Many here like the 10 eBay ones and you get what you pay for.  :coffee:
