DC33

Does a DC33 Stubborn have stronger suction then the others and does it have a HEPA filter?

Will have the same suction as all the rest, the 'Stubborn' just means it comes with the stiff stubborn brush attachment. Same motor, same machine, just a different colour.

 I think all the DC33's came with a HEPA too, so no matter what trim level you get will have HEPA, unless you fit a filter pad of course

Yes i never saw a 33 with anything other than a hepa post.

I always ask customer if they have any allergies / asthma etc in the family - if not then a post pad filter goes in mainly to keep costs down.
If it was assembled it can be disassembled - if we can't repair it then it probably isn't worth repairing !

All DC33s are identical clones apart from the cyclone top colour just like they said ^

The early ones have a crappy motor in them which donít last long, o imagine all used dc33s now have had either replacement or blown motors
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.

Parwaz is spot on.
I don't think I've ever had a DC33 that didn't want it's motor replacing. Back hoses, well yeah, that's par for the course with any Dyson. I think DC07's and DC14's are far better machines than the DC33. As for DC27's.....I won't touch them. Far too labour intensive and there is probably a reason why Dyson withdrew the product fairly quickly!

I also hate the plastic wand on DC33's...far too flexible for doing stairs, etc.

Exactly!
Next door owned a DC33 from new  for five years and have had loads of problems with it

They finally gave up on it when their replacement motor fitted by Dyson blew up after 4 years 😑 whereas dc04s and 07s arenon their original motors after a decade!

Sold them a DC14 a few months ago and theyíre over the moon with it, their cousin even bought a DC14 origin off me to replace their DC33 ( they owned one too) and she says itís way better and stronger

The DC14 is pretty much incredible, I just wish the clutch belts were toothed and the non clutched ones had a Sebo X4 style of belt and clutch

Our american DC33 is still going after 5 years of pretty severe use.   Must be an issue with the UK spec 240V motors.
Back in the UK i have a couple of 07s, 14s, and a 27 animal.   The 27 is by far my favorite, everything fits together really nicely, the wand is sturdy metal, and it looks/feels like a solid, cool looking unit.    The 33 feels like a step backwards, and seems to have a lot more parts in common with 14s than the 27s.   The 33's wand is really badly designed in my opinion, not only because it's plastic, but you have to press two buttons to get it out, where as on the 27, it can be done in one simple motion.
AM01 silver/grey (12"), AM04 white/silver, DC01 Absolute+ (ametek), DC01 Limited (ydk), DC03 Absolute+, DC04 S/L, DC07 Animal, DC14 Allergy, DC16 Animal, DC24-i, DC27 Animal, DC35 Multi-floor, 2012 AEG Ultrasilencer (blue), Numatic Henry (old style 2-speed with the red power switch on top, and the green hi/lo rocker switch on the back)
America: DC33 Multi-floor (yellow)
