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.

No, TBH, vacuuming it off doesn't do much I find as all the fluff packs into the edges... I either wash them if their not too stained or just fit new, I suppose due to the age of them, the ones I've had have never been too stained yet. I did once spend time picking all the fluff out of the edges and then washed it, which worked OK but was borderline as to whether it was worth it or not!
