If I do get one I might try if the warranty runs out.
Ian: The cleanerhead has a brushbar with VERY stiff bristles and it beats the carpet very well like an old hoover with beaters on the brushroll. There is also a red slider thing and it has a "MAX" setting and it's really powerful with this, people use it on the minimum setting though due to being too powerful.
The motor is 700w so less heat :) The 1300W motor is crap, gets really hot after 15-20 mins of use with clean filters
In my bedroom I have a wall to wall carpet, like 1 inch thick plush pile, very difficult to vacuum because it's so thickly dense. The DC41 of mine can lift that carpet because it has good suction, but the brushbar has crappy soft bristles. The Mk2 is fantastic, but has 120 AW instead of mine with 160 AW atr the head, so the brushbar on the Mk2 is MUCH better but the suction is slightly less which I find might be crap on my carpet. I planj to put a 1300w one in for this specific reason so I can have like the world's most powerful Dyson
I found out the Cinetic big ball has less suction so screw it
