I've seen that video. Fair play to James, at least he knew it wouldn't work and stopped there. What tech would he have had then? It would have been a re-designed DC05 but heavier... Those tools look like DC05 with a stupid long hose

I'd love to be interested in the new Dyson robot, especially with the digital motors, but at that price, nah, I'll buy a broken one for 40 in 3 years on ebay...

I want one, but will need a UK warranty on it. I'll get one at trade when they go on offer 6 months after launch. I suspect I'll need the guarantee.

Oooh yes! (I never truly doubted you,  just wanted to see pictures of a rare beast!)

How long have you had it for then? How much did you buy it for? Do you have toolkit? Paperwork?

So many questions about possibly the rarest dyson there is!

Welcome btw

I've had it for 14+ years - been in the box in the pic for all this time,
acquired it after a trade show, no attachments, no battery charger, so been in the box for 14 years
completely forgot about it until I heard about the new one coming out, so after some google searches found this forum and saw that they were rare.
it's almost brand new - used for the show only
therefore no paperwork no serial number or anything
I've never used it as the batteries were out of charge and there was no charger -

That's such a lucky find! In all my years, yours is the first 'real' one I have seen, bar a few youtube videos of dubious quality and origin!

You may be able to manually charge the battery like I have to with my Roomba at the moment because the charging circuits are broken, you would need the battery out though to see if the connectors are just L & N, then the appropriate voltages power supply to connect onto it with bits of wire. However, I possibly wouldn't do it with this, because it IS bloody rare!

How does it charge? Via a little plug or docking station?

I'll give you a tenner for it... or swap for an xbox?

Not sure how it charges - yesterday was the first time I've had it out of the box.
The 2 batteries (either side of the bin) have small yellow latches that release them, so not sure if these need to come out and go in a charging pack, or if it was supposed to come with a little house that it finds it's was back to, to charge??
but from what I could see there isn't a socket that looks like it would take a charger

There is a button on the top that has come off and I can see it inside the hole, but didn't fish it out last night when I took the pics (I think it's the 'fast' button s the one next to it has a picture of a tortoise on it.

Thanks for the xbox offer, but I'll give that a pass thanks!! ;D ;D

Any suggestions about what I should do with it???

The problem you have, is that without knowing if it works, or can be charged it's gonna affect its value. But you don't want to try and bodge it to work, as that could break

The problem with ebay is you could either do really well, and it goes for lots of money, or you'll get 3 bids and itll go for 30. Plus then there's paypal fees!

I was going to suggest sending Stu a message, either he will make you an offer so it can sit in his museum and be looked at longingly by alot of people, or know someone who he can put in contact with you.

OMG nice! ;D
I agree, it's best for MVacs to have it, it would not have a better home! :icon_nod: Esp with all the other Dysons in Britain.
Beko is right, there was once a refurbished, as new Dyson which only went for 10, eBay is crap really at 50/50 luck
Thanks for informing the forum :thumbsup:
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.

Lovely DC06, wish I'd have been sharper, I'd have snapped that up any day!
