Nice job, I'm seeing as many Sharks as Dysons now come through my workshop. 

Had to split those hoses down a few times as they are notorious for blocking up just past the bend.

Cheers! I quite like working on them now. Used to hate them but once you've done a few you find the Rythm!

I see more of the smaller Navigators come in, either the old ones or newer duo-cleans. Always the same thing!

They sell well too, all the Mrs Hinch huns love a £70 shark with new cheap filters 😂

Yeah they always sell, be better for us when a few more spares become available (there’s some copy main motors available now)
