Dyson DC17 in the UK!

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.

The Dyson DC17? These are designed specially for the North American market because Americans have deep pile really thick carpets unlike the UK which is mainly thin pile carpets

Same goes with the Dyson DC28 (not to be confused with the DC28C) as it's an upright with airmuscle technology. The brushbar sticks out the soleplate and goes in and out of the housing at the touch of a button. Has 4 settings (Hard floor, low, medium and deep pile)
