Thanks muchly, I love it! Gonna give it light use though as its in its older days now, I had a couple when I was younger, but the dc01 absolute! But I wasn't kean as the small hepa used to overheat the motor, even with a new filter in place! I found it also melted the actual area on the casing where the filter sat.
I do have a question as i haven't had a dc01 for about 10 years, the suction is no way near as good as my dc04. I have stripped the cyclone checked air ways, all sealed correctly etc! The suction is good just not amazing but I suppose it is a very old machine!!! Is this normal???
