The DC02 on eBay

This hasnt sold for the past 2 weeks... Price has been dropped too.

I'm out because I haven't got the cash,  saving it for a job lot of dysons that are local and at the moment are at 5 with 3 days left...

It's in the next town from me,  happy to pick it up and package it properly for shipping and post it for the same cost/you arrange a courier with your bulk volume discount...

Cheers Beko!  :bow:

I stuck 37 on it on spec. That's enough. If we win it, we'll work the delivery out.  :thumbsup:

Nice! The cord rewind may be fixable,  if not I'm sure you have a used spare!

It was the good looking stickers a d lack of damage that looked good to me,  heck,  if it even needed a motor it's not the end of the world!

It did start at 60 odd quid though.  If it was 99p I'd have kept quiet...

Ha well there you go! Should just be a case of strip wash polish and reassemble with shiny new filters a d a new rewind then!

Be interested to know the date if it's on the serial number...

We have a couple of new motors and some gen filters too, so as long as it is unbroken, it will be minted up as new to join the DC01 and DC04 De Stijl I am hoarding.  :-*

I am not sure if I still have a DC02 box in the attic. I have a feeling I sent a DC24 out in it.......

It appeared today after I had gone. Missing tools, something cracked and the dodgy rewind we know about. Our chap says quite doable as a minter if we throw some parts at it. Will give it a once over tomorrow and post a pic or two.

Shame about the crack. Hopefully it's a sound enough base to begin with!

Its now done, new cable rewind, gen filters, the motor was mint so stayed, and a new floor head I happened to have. And I also still had a box!  :king:

Nice.  I didn't realise how big they were until I got one, compared to the DC05 they are huge  :o
