Lol nope, it's nowhere near mint enough for me to spend 30 on it. Saving up to pay for the holiday we booked now, no frivolous spending for me for the forseeable, infact the idea is to get machines sold and out the door!

I wouldn't really spend more than 10 on any DC01 except a nice De Stijl all original and with tools...

10 is my max for a 'normal machine'.  A minter/all paperwork /good tools etc maybe 20, depending on the time of the month

I presume you mean payday lol  ;D :icon_nod:

And I agree, 10 is what I paid for my DC14 origin (blown up) even though I kind of sensed the guy at the carboot chatting shite

yep,  payday!

10 always seems a safe number.  We can all get a good idea of a machine by the look and smell,  if its knackered for a tenner thats easily made back in spares

Very true^
I like how we can check if a vacuum is burnt out by the smell of the inlet tube to the motor

Cant believe I paid 22 for a blown up DC04 in 2013 ffs, atleast it served me well for like 3 months, got a much better one for 8 afterwards!

Nope it was in horrible condition it was that crappy Absolute+lime model which was ugly faded to a dark purple colour and it;s not worth spending a lot of money just to fix a Dc04

Post by: Parwaz7862 on February 18, 2016, 12:31:48 AM
I would even be reluctant to buy a 22 blown up Dc07 let alone a Dc04 lol

Yes it was a brand new Dyson DC04 silver and lime which we got for 150! original box, paperwork, tools everything, it was brand new but only dusty for it's display purpose. Never been switched on

No we needed a new vacuum at the time, we literally had no vacuum and I was in like year 8 and so was still and kid and my mum was looking for a good vacuum, she considered a brand new DC25 at the time and I waned that too but the DC04 in the display of the shop had gone!

So we went in and thank God it was still inside for sale! Just on the shelf now. We bought it and haggled 10 (was 160)  and got it home and used it.  Sorry but at the time I wasnt collecting and I really wanted that Dc04 to officially own it and if that had got sold I'd have kicked myself.  Sorry but we would much rather have a clean house than keeping a vacuum new and not using it, and having OCD makes it worse, but it does help in the way that I did refurb the DC04 every once in a while  :icon_nod: it's just an everyday vacuum now, it's 5 years old and worked really well! Might get rid of it though, my mum uses the DC33 and DC41

Oh and as for the DC25... well I got it 10 months later for my 13th birthday ;D The warranty expires in November actually... crap :/

dyson balls are a load of rubbish

and all need to scraped  :dead-dyson:
Title: Re: 1993 dyson DA001 cheep with POST
Post by: Parwaz7862 on February 18, 2016, 02:54:40 PM
:o I would have to disagree sorry
Dyson balls are very durable and the DC25 is probably the best Dyson ball there is
They clean much better than DC04's and hardly break physically, DC04's are prons to cracking plastics and the Dc01 is pretty much the same despite feeling solid

They do have plastic wands, yes but you get used to it and I honestly hated the new DC41's etc when they first came out bu after using one in my own home I have actually grown to like them! They are fantastic machines. You just need to give them a chance and they will be lovely machines in your opinion aswell



To be honest, I really don't know if I prefer the newer Dysons or the older ones, both have advanages and disadvantages that cancel out within each other

Everyone at our shop has a DC14 at home, nobody envisages changing it any time soon.

We have a DC35 as well for silly stuff, crumbs, etc. Mostly it is a kids toy. Claire has a DC24 upstairs, but not for anything serious (the DC14 downstairs does that). Both our techs have only DC14's.

Olga had a DC24 for about a month, she brought it back to be serviced and sold; she preferred her DC14.

Our new girl, Lisa, will try a DC14 and a Sebo at home for a couple of weeks each, to see what she prefers. Also so she can talk to customers having had first hand experience of both.

I'd rather choose a DC25 over a Dc07, but a DC14 is better than both ;)

he best performing Dyson is the DC41 Mk2. I have tried;
Dc01 Ametek
DC01 YDK from new
DC02
DC03
DC04 clutched & non clutched
Dc05 Normal
DC05 Motorhead
DC07 Non clutched & Clutched (two were brand new)
DC08 Origin with contact head
DC14 clutched & non clutched
DC24
DC25 (new)
DC27
DC33
DC40
DC41 Original
DC41 Mk2

Out of all these, the DC41 Mk2 is the most powerful in carpet cleaning, but for hose suction the Dc08 is the strongest with the Dc07 coming second and DC14 3rd

Sounds good  :thumbsup: If I were to use one Dyson for the rest of my life it would be a DC14

Same here.

We have a 14 and a 04 in the house and an 05 for the cars, decorating etc. We had a dc25 but got rid for the 14.

I find 07 and 14 origins go well and silver/lime 04's. Any animal sells well.

Our new girl, Lisa, will try a DC14 and a Sebo at home for a couple of weeks each, to see what she prefers. Also so she can talk to customers having had first hand experience of both.

While the Sebo has the hose from the top which makes it unstable when using it, they're actually okey as long as you're not talking about a silly Felix or something. I think she'll  perfer a Sebo.

I'd like to find out what one she liked.

Perhaps a comparison video?

Yep! I would get annoyed if I make a loss, and breaking even isn't something I am keen on unless I'm desperate for a new vacuum which is nearly off sale!

Bought a Dyson DC14 Origin from the CB sale for 10, fitted a new motor and was lovely for like 8 months and still was but sold it because I saw a 60 DC41 Animal I wanted. Sold the Dc14 for 50 (40 profit) and so 60 is what the DC41 cost me, 60-40= 20 is what I really paid, 40 came from the profit ;D


I also got 150 offered to me for my DC41 but I was reluctant because of the cracked chassis but Im glad I never because I have this new one ;D
Then I used the DC41 as our home vacuum for half a year, till earlier this month I asked Dyson fr a replacement because this machine pissed me off. So I now own a brand new Dyson DC41 Mk2 Animal with 5 year guarantee! All it cost me was 20. All this happened because I purchased that 10 DC14 ;D I feel very proud of that!
