*Wanted* - Scottish Made Hoover Purepower
« on: May 18, 2021, 01:00:04 PM »
Hi All,

Just new to this site and to vacuum cleaner collecting too. Iíve always been obsessed with Vacuum Cleaners for as long as I can remember but only just started to build up a collection at the grand old age of 24 ahaha.

Anyways I digress :offtopic: - if anyone is selling or knows of anyone selling a Scottish made Hoover Purepower Iíd be super grateful if you could let me know or point me in their direction or vice versa. Can never seem to see any really pop up on eBay etc these days, all just later Chinese made versions.

Iíd love to get my hands on a New in Box one but I very much doubt anyone really has anything like that these days.

These cleaners hold a special place in my heart as it was one of the first vacuums I remember my Mum having when I was young so I think it would be fitting to have it in my collection. 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cayley x

Hi, welcome aboard, are you looking for a particular model or colour scheme? They made loads, and I mean LOADS of PurePowers, some were good, some were... not so! 🤣

Hey, thank you! :) Haha, when I moved out, I bought a 350watt Enigma and it is terrible! 🤣 so preferably a one prior to Hoovers production move to China... I'd love to get my hands on an autosense model but I highly doubt I'll ever come across one haha :'( or one with an activator brushroll. Although if I found one without one an activator I guess I could always try and get my hands one an activator.

Any help on where you can obtain these from would be much appreciated. Most places I've looked when I've looked for spares only seem to sell the new style brushroll :snivel:

Welcome to the vacuum community!
I don't suppose you're near Birmingham? I've considered selling mine but not to some random consumeron facebook marketplace lol.
Mine although isn't perfect, it's in overall decent condition, feel free to message me for more details!
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.
