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.

A Hoover Senior has joined the museum and here is the video after Mr Beko of this parish had restored it for us.  :thumbsup:

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)
