a DC07 Low Reach

The red and purple one? I agree you dont see too many of those either.

I have two nice DC15s on the shop floor I have had ages (too big and probably too expensive @ £145). We very seldom see nice ones of those now so I think I will reappropriate them, one for our museum and one possibly for the collection in the Q boardroom. Being reconned already, they won't take much work to make them even better. DC15s seem to have suddenly dropped off the radar the last year or so.

Yep the red and purple ones, beautiful but becoming rare :/ It's odd a certain variant of DC07 is becoming rare even though DC07s are still very popular to this day, I bet every street in Britain has at least 1 DC07, possibly. They sold extremely well and had a long 8/9 years of production ;D

I want a nice DC15 Allergy, had one but needed an original wand and hose which I couldn't get ahold of cheap enough for me so sold it on, hopefully I'll get another.
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.

I had a DC07 low reach I'm purple and red, it was so faded on the head that as soon as I touched it it snapped, converted the machine to a dc07 de stijl that was never originalky made (idea from MVacs) and then the other day whilst restoring my absolute purple lime dc04 I used the spare head from my donor to make it nolonger have a silver head.

It's a spiffing looking machine, people keep turning it upside down to marvel at the underside.

You can't beat a clean underside! Got those new shelves up yet?

How about a Sebo X7 vs Hoover Senior vs Hoover Junior grooming test?

No, we'll probably buy some.  :underchair:

I bet the X7 outperforms that DC75 one you did with the golden oldie.  :-*

When we get your 725 or whatever it is done, you will have to recreate that! The newest machine on your premises vs the oldest! (comparable anyway, the goblin is older but straight suction)

Three rare Sebo vacuums have crept into our museum.

There is a yellow Sebo X4.

A see-through Sebo X4.

And a dark blue and grey Sebo X1.



Another recent addition to our museum is one of the rarest Dyson vacuums ever, the Dyson DC06.

There is an article on that one here on the forum you can read >>here<<.

As we get different machines finished, I will add some extra photos.

Here is a silver and orange DC04 Constant Max we got finished a few days ago.

Here is a purple and magenta limited edition Meningitis model we got finished today.

I'll add more as the museum develops and we have more machines ready for it.
Hi I just have a quick question regarding the purple and magenta dc04.
I have just purchased one from eBay and itís arriving sometime this week.
However I have noticed that on the cleanerhead it doesnít have the telescope sticker in the bottom left corner and on the bin handle it doesnít say special edition it just says absolute plus.
Does this mean that itís a later run machine without those specific stickers?
And if so does the machine even have a correlation to the meningitis charity like the earlier ones did as I just assumed that all the dc04s made in this colour scheme help the meningitis charity but I could be wrong due to the reasons Iíve stated. Iím inclined to believe they do as Iíve seen one in new condition online without the telescope sticker and it still came with a manual in the meningitis colours and shows the specific machine with the blurb at the top reading ďhelp fight meningitisĒ
I would appreciate any wisdom on this query

It has the Absolute+ filter so it's still relevant. It wouldn't have a telescope reach sticker as that was introduced on the DC14. It could be a later model if there's less stickers on it and if the cyclone has one sticker which is usually filly silver and if the wand cap is the later type with no spring. AFAIK the DC04s in this colour scheme are only for the charity hence the colour scheme

Remember, the earlier the DC04, the more information on it. The early pink DC04s had a pic of a microscope I think on the head with the charity label or something similar, off the top of my head. I have a 1998 Absolute+ and that has all sorts of stickers such as safety features, two cyclone stickers, a filter wash sticker reminder, the helpline was also literally just above the cyclone catch on early models to, on the body.

It sounds like you may probably have a later version there, I'd be happy as the earlier ones have terrible plastic quality.
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.
