Daamn! :o :o :o
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.

When I was working on a DC07 and it fell off the bench, breaking the spine in half.
Or, when my son was helping an I said " that works, now just put the switch cover back on". It was still plugged in  :o luckily he only touched one terminal.  :-X or I'll have health and safety after me.

I nearly took apart my DC01 to the motor, realised it was still plugged in half way luckily! :o

I tried to stop the brushroll with my fingers on something, can't remember what. Thought the belt may be worn. Damn thing took half my hand on before I turned it off, the tips of my fingers got burnt from the brushroll, and the whole thing was red for days. I got laughed at heartily by SWMBO and told off for swearing infront of the children...

With that dc25 animal? :)) the brush motors on them are bloody powerful, harder to jam  the brush on them than a dc07 with new belts and stiff bristles on the 25 are worse :o

Thats it,  bloody thing was intermittant,  put my hand by it and it fired up and pulled my fingers in,  the tips of the brushroll brushes burnt my pinkies

I have to be careful now with eva too,  Usually I check brushrolls for spinniness by very carefully letting it brush over my hand, whilst upright,  but cant with eva about incase she tries,  with the obvious results

 "I'm possative someone posted that they did."
I remember that.
I posted that I'd scratched my hand either before or after someone said they had actually gouged theirs - nasty. Vicious tool, don't use it anymore since someone on facebook showed me how they did it.

Was cleaning and went over a key that blended with the wood floor, didnt make a pretty sound as it ricoched its way through the dc07 brush housing before i could turn it off  :duh:
The clutch never slipped either.
