I say chaps - you have been busy since I last checked in!!

Bravo!!!!  :thumbsup:

As an aside to my thread the Mrs now wants to see both machines (UP22 and UP24) so its a trip to Currys when we are released from house arrest!!

Once again my thanks to you all especially MVacs for providing such a brilliant source of information and help!

 :thumbsup:

I recommend buying either UP22/24 from Dyson directly off their website, they have an incredible returns policy, I bought one off them once and the helpline advisor they'd accept returns even if you decide you don't like the colour!

So test it out in your own home and decide that way it's the best option  :thumbsup:

This is the wand the cleaner comes with. The one with the built in dusting brush which I donít want and want one that fits without the built in dusting brush.  The simple banana shape handle I believe wonít fit the EFS suction hose

Dyson DC14, DC17, DC27, DC28 and DC33 / Re: DC14 Hepa advice?

Had you been using the DC14 without filters in place? Itís incredibly rare the fans ever clog up on those causing excess noise and vibration, itís usually the brush roll that makes them loud.
If you wash the filters regularly on the DC14 itíll probably be ok for limited DIY use, but youíll probably find itíll clog often if sucking up screws or other large debris. If you can pick up a cheap Henry, that might be a better bet.

I was thinking about a cheap henry, I do already have one but it is basically brand new and I don't really want to ruin it. We have always used it with filters as some of my family members have asthma. Its belt is way overdue replacement as it is about 2 times bigger than a brand new one, also its brush roll is really cracked and its bearings are very dry. I stripped it to the motor and it is very hard to turn by hand, what would happen if I turned it on when the motor is hard to turn by hand?

Is it just the banana-shaped one or the one with an extra bit they call the 'comfort' handle like this?



I do have a banana-shaped Miele handle of some kind that someone once ordered and never collected. I'll have a root and see if I can find it. I'll have a look in our used Miele box too.

The one in the photo is £73 delivered.

I've never seen one of those, thanks for sharing.

I'd have assumed it was 50s as well, surprising it's only from 94.  :o

It wasn't a lot of money either!

I have above vacuum cleaner model SKCF3.  Itís the one with the built in dusting brush on the handle.  Iíve never been able to get on with the handle and now itís split and broken and canít be used.  The replacement handle us about £80 and as Iíve always  found it useless anyway Iím trying to find another compatible handle that fits the EFS suction hose.  There is a CX1 powerline  SKRF3 that doesn't appear to have the handle that has the built in brush so Iím trying to find out what part that is and if it fits to the EFS hose.  Iíve contacted  Miele who state that standard handle 9442691 is compatible with all CX1 models but Iím not convinced that it does as that appears to be the same handle as on my old S5260 machine which has a smaller diameter hose at the handle end. I need one that fits the EFS hose but which doesnít have the built in dusting brush and hopefully is more  sturdy and doesnít cost a quarter of a whole new cleaner!
Any help appreciated.  Thanks

Wanted one of these for ages so was really glad to pick this one up in decent nick (with plenty of spare bags) for £25. I believe these were sold door-to-door like Kirbys?

I am on the hunt for a few bits - a crevice tool, a replacement post filter and most importantly the big chrome badge that's missing off the side. Suspect they'll need to come from the US, though.

It's an amazing machine though - feels like it's from the 50s but built in '94. Powerhead is totally overkill but I kinda like that. I've got a fairly longpile rug that it does a great job on.
