Breakthrough Antartica solo Q&A
« on: April 18, 2022, 06:31:00 PM »

Trying to look for older Dyson outside the UK is as looking for Polarbears in the tropics...
Here in Holland I came across an ''odd'' Antartica Solo which needs some TLC and is obviously is no longer pure grey..

-the complete powercord needs replacement, but which type is correct for the UK market?
And does anyone has it for sale as an original replacement?

-it lacks the stickers on top, it lacks the Dyson name on the cleaner head and it lacks the Ralph Fiennes signature which i see more often on various pics.

What's the story ? A replacement cleaner head once or what else ?
It does have the blue limited edition sticker however on the bottom right.

In fact its pretty similar to Beko1987's ''The filthiest Dyson ever'' as portrait on YouTube in 2020

Thank for any available  feedback/info !

Hi! I have one of these machines. I can't tell you anything about the cable but I can tell you mine doesn't have a dyson logo on the head either, just a signature.

I have one for sale in the box. There's photos on Instagram here.

The correct power cord has a round plug for that.

Hi Bear, thanks for your reply, when polishing mine, i saw a shade of a rubbed off logo
Since the Dyson was used in a nunnery, I dare not guess why this worldly brand name was sent to hellÖ

Thanks for both replies ! The one in de box looks pretty good, never saw itís carton before .. for now I will stick to the NL version, and the correct power plug .. ? Recently a 2,99 eBay Dyson filter set me back a total of £ 25 on shipping taxes. No fun to buy in the UK anymore . Glad I bought most from you in time Ö
