Hahaha XD We had a DC14, I miss it! Now we have a DC33 Animal which is okay, not bad but the wand is made of flimsy plastic but I have got used to it which is fine :)

I think the DC14 is the best Dyson with the DC25 being second best, and the DC07 coming in 3rd
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.

Yes will never be that lovely silver/grey again but all my hoovers get used once restored so not too fussed.

The DC02 has been used to clean up plaster which is bad enough in any hoover but the DC02 doesn't seem to have a "Pre" filter other than the foam surround. Hence the motor is stone dead and stinks.

Has a complete wand, perfect hose and floor head though so will keep a eye out for a cheap genuine motor on Ebay for it, will make a good car hoover :D

Do you want the excellent motor from my DC02 Clear? Yours for postage if you do? It run fine

The floor tool base plate? Shame you didnt ask the other month, I binned a knackered dc02 floor tool, could have had the screws from that! Wood screws of the appropriate size would work though, just watch the length
