My latest acquisition
« on: December 08, 2014, 11:52:52 PM »
Got this off ebay for the bargain price of 20 and under 10 miles away.



It came with all the tools



And  ;D



But is missing the wand cap



It was described as "Dyson ball motor works ok has accessories infrequent suction spares or repair.

important - Don't expect a shop condition dyson it's worn, marked, scuffed, dirty.

NO RETURNS ACCEPTED - SOLD AS SEEN!!! "

It couldn't suck the skin off a rice pudding, but the brush motor is working  :bow:

I think they have been decorating !!



Don't think they read the bit about cleaning the filter  >:(



Have washed the filter and will strip it dawn and clean it soon but I think its going to be a good one  :thumbsup:

Duly done.

Good buy for twenty quid even though it needs a few hours work on it.

Must be the season for DC25s

Just got another one off ebay for 22 with a non working brush bar.  Picking it up Saturday.

OMG Madrat, for 22 last month I got a DC25 All Floors off eBay with a broken brush motor and wire loom which is now awesomely working :)
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.

Nice find!

it must be the DC25 season too, must be coming of age!

Had one in for a refurb on Monday, at the 'putting it back together' stage now
Got one coming in tonight with a 'dead brushroll', will commence the troubleshooting on that. She mentioned it stunk of dog too, so once working I'll try and sell in a full refurb on that!
Had someone else want a fll refurb too but they haven't come back to me yet
