Can I ask where you got it from and what you paid?

Om nom nom! Being from discontinued but discounted that's in very good condition, you got lucky there! It's odd seeing them so shiney and unfaded!

So, the big question - to use or not to use? To turn on and see what it sounds like and not use, or to leave it alone?

I wouldnt use it, maybe turn it on though... Would give you a good suction and noise benchmark for other DC04's though!

It came off eBay over 100. Rather not disclose the specifics.

Ah he's just trying to benchmark what the market rate for one is nowadays.

Dont forget Mvacs, we are all a bit cynical of the seller this came from, they can be quite hit and miss. I imagine that *may* have kept the price down and people wondered wether to gamble or play it safe

You gambled and won!

Is this the same seller that has listed a few over time? From a closed shop or something?

True, although as damage would go it wouldnt be too bad... Just dont recline it to avoid undue stress on it?

Open shop but a massive hoarde from their father or something. They were DiscontinuedbutDiscounted, they posted on vacuumland in the early days of their existence, when the kids bid their stuff up sky high then nonchalantly decided they didnt want it, we al lkicked off a bit over that one! Not sure if you were on VL back then?

I think they have been on here too briefly.

It a good buy at the money though. Duff clutch or not.  :icon_nod:

The 'new' DC04 we have we need 260 for inc delivery.

Niiice! ;D I want a DC07 animal off them, he wont reply to my bloody emails -.- He has a Dc03 clear too
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.
