Where is the poll?

Never mind, I'm blind.

Sebo & Kirby, for me I can't choose between either of those. They both beat Dyson by miles in all aspects though. My Dc40 is now in the loft.  :-X

Even though your dC40 picks up he most dirt, that's the whole point haha  :))
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.

Well, your point is a valid one however I have my reasons.

1. The Dyson feels like a flimsy toy compared to Sebo and Kirby.
2. The Sebo and Kirby's do pick up very well and they appear to leave my carpet physically looking better (Fluffyer)
3. The Dyson is much noisier
4. The Dyson in my opinion doesn't look as good. (If I'd have known more about Vacuum's when I bought it I'd not have bought it but I bought it before I even had an interest in any type of Vacuum.)
5. I'm starting to dislike Dyson as a brand, their prices for flimsy plastic are starting to annoy me.

Oh right, well I got used to it ;) They do seem flimsy but unlike DC01's and DC04's etc the plastic hardly snaps off which is good. Wish they bought the DC14 quality back, a bit of old and new- Solid plastic which takes a lot to bend, and when it does bend, there's no snapping.

I heard Kirby's are loud? Maybe just the newer ones, I dunno.

I quite like the look of Dyson vacuums (except the DC03 unless it's sideways)  as they look futuristic. The DC41 certainly looks futuristic due to it's colour and tidy, simple looking design. Even a DC04 still looks modernish and that's an 18 year old design from the 90's ;D
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.

Hmm, in my opinion the G1 is the quietest. The Kirby's vary in noise, they all appear to have a slightly different sound, the older ones seem quieter, for example my Tradition I think its quiet, but the Legend II is the quietest I think. The G4 is the loudest Kirby I have, but I think the Dyson is much louder and also more high pitched lol. The Sebo has a low pitch sound which I like ;)

I'm with rusty,  this poll is more aimed at general people I think,  not collectors.  Where's the option for a 1960s Hoover Junior?

Ive been using the UltraCaptic and nothing else for the past few weeks,  the rugs are screaming at me for a good clean! May try the Vax Mach Air I have,  or the Junior or Senior that are in the shed pre refurb.  Senior is proper manky,  so possibly not that.  I've done a senior refurb thread too,  its even thr same colour which is a pain,  but is proper barn/bin find

Everyone has made some really good points. If I were to look at it from a normal consumer's perspective, it all comes down to the bag. Personally, I don't like dealing with the dust twice, nor do I want to face that angry spider I sucked up again!

For my bagless machines, they are always vacuumed off with a shop vac before the bins are refitted after emptying. Not to mention they are usually emptied in the garage!

Lol at the 60's hoover option. I use one of those a lot too.

my wife is reasonably lucky that she can choose anything we have in stock in our shop to use at home (she would feel luckier if our business was vintage diamonds or Jimmy Choo shoes - but it is what it is).

 :icon_nod:

My wife has decided she wants to hang on to her new black Sebo, but isn't *yet* ready to give up her DC14 (unless I find her an adaptor that makes all the Dyson dusting and other tools fit the Sebo). So in a Dyson -v- Sebo contest, she is undecided.  :-\

Edit: We now stock the >>Dyson tools to Sebo vacuum adaptor<< - I solved that one.

I have decided to keep the Sebo X4 Pet Eco black, and sell our DC14 as we now have a Dyson 360 Eye Robot to clean the downstairs hard floors. The Sebo is very capable to do everything else (the short wand you can remove as you go is nice). And the Sebo is quieter than the Dyson. And now we have the adaptor to use all the Dyson accessories with the Sebo.

Ifound out something interesting , Their are those who hate vacuum bags and for them we will sell a dyson but their are also those who hate bagless and prefer the bags, Its useless to try and sell someone who wants a bagged vacuum a bagless one as they will never be happy. We first did the vorwerk thing but I soon gave up on them and went to sebo and bosch. I also looked at miele and bought a bunch of samples to try out, we ended up not going with them for no other reason other than the profit margin was just to low to justify the cost involved, That said I was impressed with the S7 upright, especially the quietness however it weighs a ton and despite its swivel function feels like your pushing a few pounds of concrete around the carpet. My mom loved it and so I gave it to them. One thing I didn't like was the smell the machine gave off after a few uses despite the charcoal filter. It developed a stink to it. I have found this on every miele I have used, I have owned about 15.

My mom loved it till the brush roll needed replacement, Good grief what a price , I fixed it and sold i and gave here something else, These days she has taken a liking to the dc15  I had standing at my place ( I have a x4 sebo and a dyson dc41 ) so I gave her that to use

Actually I had a client with a Miele, that smelt like vomit, despite changing filters it would always come back.  :sick0012:
