The 'Bargains' thread
« on: January 03, 2016, 03:00:50 PM »
This thread shall henceforth be where we put the links to the 'F*ck me what were they thinking' for sale ads I'm sure we all see and laugh at!

Mainly because I've just seen this 'bargain' local to me...

Nice thread idea Sam! And Steve all I needed to registet my dc41 was the approx date and place of purchase :)
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.

Check the cyclone on the 50 they normally clog up

B - 30!?!?

That's the silver/turquoise DC07 All Floors footplate. It doesn't look so obvious in the photos but I bet close up the turquoise looks quite different to the DC04 light blue

What Russ said.  :icon_nod:

We have built those in the past though - they are passable.

I'd pay 8-10 MAX for that! Crevice tool is from an 05, ugly cable and plug too.

I would only pay that much for a nice mint DC25 with all tools and clean

Yup ^ It's an early model too so has the fragile plastics
