Nice DC01 Obtained!
« on: June 03, 2015, 11:26:53 AM »
Took a trip out last night to pay 2.50 for a dead DC14 and a nice, honest, faded, giffer owned DC01.

Has a pack of 6 filters with it



2 of which are fitted to the machine







Nice mint cyclone stickers



Giffer damage to the bumpers



Decent lower sticker



The rubber soleplate spring is in-tact and present!





It's a late model though

Original plug



Tiny bit of damage to the wand



Hose is scrap but I have a spare one I think under the bed.

It's a shame it's so faded. Will be pointless getting a new wand as it'll be faded differently to the rest of the machine! I'll refurb this in due course and add it to the collection until a better one pops along. TBH It's the best one I've seen locally for months so it's not all bad! And I'm one more DC01 closer to having a full set!

No word of a lie, this is the only local (within 25 miles) DC01 I've seen for years. Was a ruined one at the car boot last year which I didn't go for as it was broken in every possible way. They seem to be getting a bit thin over this way!

TBH if it wasnt for the BROKEN DC14 being in the listing title I'd have missed it anyway!

I noticed that most Dc01's I seen that are the late type with old logos and the red cyclone sticker they are mostly in good condition with most/all things intact and dont even be faded! ;D atleast what I seen anyways
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.

Same, seeing more and more 'refurbished' DC01's for the 40 mark on ebay now, they obviously dont sell though as they keep cropping up again and again!

I think these are starting to be found either completely broken/not worth it or mintola, general 'in daily use until recently' ones have all but gone I think!

Someone has loved this through its life though, the belt is fairly new, it grooms very well! Filters are recent too, although already filthy!

We don't see many at all now. Ones we do get are broken for bits mostly as they are worth more in bits.
