DC14
« on: January 01, 2018, 12:10:41 AM »
Are the early dc14 better or the later one? Also, why did Dyson make earlier dc14, dc07,dc04. They should have  made them all later ones with no breakage, clogging or anythng else. Why did they only make 3 variants of the DC33 and why didn't they make them clutchless as well?

The earlier DC14s have brittle ABS plastic, the later DC14s are more durable. It's quite rare to see a DC14 physically broken from normal use  (except maybe the hoses that split when people overstretch them)

Dyson learnt their lesson that tough plastic doesn't mean it's the right plastic. Hence why they now make their  machines from flexible plastic. Less chance of snapping.

The earlier DC14s have better motors, the later DC14s with YDK motors and DC33 had the crap motors. The DC14 ones were okayish, lasted a few years

Early DC33 motors didn't even last long at all, next door's DC33 (brand new) blew up after a few months

The different variants of DC33 just differ from each other with what they include in the box. For example, the animal has the mini turbine head and the stubborn came with a stubborn dirt brush and dyzolv.

Clutchless ones weren't designed to be used on carpets. All Dysons now have HEPA filtration and brush control, whereas older ones didn't even have them unless they were a more sophisticated variant
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.

Don't you mean that the other way around?
