DC01 Dejstill Question
« on: October 13, 2015, 07:17:54 PM »
Hi everyone,  I've not had much luck with getting a DC01 Dejstill lately.  The first one I looked at but didn't bid on and it was 45. The second on was 42  and tried to message the seller to get it cheaper and no luck. 

So then. Does anyone have a DC01 Dejstill for sale?.
Thanks, Ewan

Tell the seller that the parts are no longer made so if the vacuum breaks (they suffer from fragile plastic) it will be hard to find destijl parts and they are old and not worth much these days
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.

I have 80% of one for sale...

Has a grey cable, grey soleplate, no release valves, no cyclone stickers and no tools. Fully polished up though, did it for someone and they then found a bloody minter of one on their local gumtree for a tenner...

25 posted would have it, but tbh it's probably gonna be easier to find a complete one than try to complete this one (I completed my minter 01 de stijl with it...)

It would be good if you would take 10 for the hoover and 10 for postage.

Does anyone know what type of red the Dejstill uses?

It's the same red as the modern Dysons (the red bits that are non translucent)
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.
