"just seems like the designers put a lot more care into the design."

And build quality!

One thing I have noticed about the older British dysons is that they have a very different feel to them than the newer ones. Can't really put it into words, just seems like the designers put a lot more care into the design.

You are right. The ones James Dyson actually had a hand in were the classics.

MVacs, I had actually considered contacting you years ago about that! Funds wouldn't allow now, but thank you very much for the offer and I will keep it in mind. Likewise, If there are any machines or parts you need, assuming I can source them, I would gladly help. Thanks again!

Thanks for the reciprocity!  ;D

Likewise, I will help out any US based collector that is a regular contributor on the forum here in case of need in any way I can.

They just seem to have a lot of simple, yet well thought out and useful features aside from their trademark dual cyclones. Such as the way the dc02 sits on stairs and has easy access filters that greet you the moment you open it up. They seem less formulaic than the new ones, if that makes any sense.

Off topic, would anyone be interested in seeing some pictures of a dc02 side by side with the American fantom lightning? I won't be back home for a while (a few weeks) but can do it then. I thought it might be interesting.

Same here! Be as geeky as you want,  I've never seen a yank dc02 up close!

I heard that no part of a DC02 and Fantom Lightning are identical :/

They were made in Canada, but sold best in the U.S.

They are very different inside, but the changes made to the original molds by fantom are easy to see and interesting.
Glad to hear there is an interest, had the idea a while ago but wasn't sure if anyone would really care. I will do it next time I go home, probably about two weeks.

Doesn't this machine clog its filters up horrifically? Like all the dirt comes out of the cyclone and clogs the (very expensive) filters by design? Sure I read about that for one of the fantom machines...

This thread has drifted a tad hasnt it!

All of the fantoms clogged their post filters much more than necessary. This one is no exception. The inner cyclone is smaller and crappier than the dc02 one, plus there is no real pre motor filter, rather just a metal screen. If you think builders dust kills dysons.....

Back on topic  ;D, I'm surprised no one has voted for any of the newer cylinders. I had another dc39 a while ago and thought it's performance was impressive.

Just wondering, are you "FantomLightning" on YouTube? ;D

Nope, never had the time to make any decent videos. Wish I did though! I have a lot I would like to share.
