I could definitely use some advise from you folks on here. I've got great deals on all 3 machines and I really don't know which one I should keep...
To make a long story short.. I purchased a DC26 "The City" canister vacuum last month at Best Buy and I love it. My house is tile, hardwood, and carpet, so it was doing a nice job for me. Especially considering I got them to price match the thing so low that I purchased it for $115 total with a 4 year extended Best Buy protection plan.
Next thing I know, I'm in a house with a customer for work and I notice they have a Dyson DC07 that needs repaired. The gentleman was going to throw it away, so he just gave it to me for FREE. I took it to the local Dyson certified repair shop and it needs a new hose, 2 new filters, and a complete cleaning & tune-up. This will cost me $150, but I did not give him the go-ahead to repair it quite yet. I don't know if its worth fixing as I don't even know how the machine performs.
Now, two nights ago I was in Best Buy and happened to see the very last DC33 multi-floor on clearance for $220. I negotiated down to $180 and brought the machine home. So far I like it, but it doesn't have the maneuverability of my DC26 canister vacuum. I swept with the canister first and then the DC33 right over the same area and it picked up so much more dirt and dog hair than the canister. But... I can't get into the small crevices like I can with the canister and the DC33 has an odd hose on it in my opinion.
I have 3 dogs and my house is constantly dirty... which machine should I keep!!!??? Should I fix the DC07 or is it not worth it??? Should I keep the DC26 Canister and sell the DC33???? Or should I keep the DC33 and sell the DC26 canister???? GAHHHHH!!!! DECISIONS, DECISIONS...
I could really use some advise on this from the people that know these vacuums best.
