what to do with old DC08
« on: February 25, 2016, 08:15:56 PM »
Hi

I'm not sure what to do with our dc08 animal, main problem with this is that the turbine head is no longer present, everything else still there, the only thing I can think of is parts, anyone know if there is still need for them??? as the lot newer model not selling for much on auction sites now

Itll sell! Buy a used normal floor head,  clean it up and facebook it.  Or use it for the car

DC08's are worth loads, not sure if it's either because of the suction or if it's because of the design...
Animal Dysons sell well aswell

DC08+Animal= DC08 Animal, so you will get good money! They are old though so maybe not more than 70
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.

They are good, we purchased our in 2006 and I never had a problem apart from the poor design of turbine head, looking around is very common on them where the little hose inside splits and you can't get replacement.

70-- I don't think I would get that, there is few on ebay for 60 with warrant and they don't sell, I would most likely say 40-50 with turbine head

cheap DC25, used DC25 and brand new brashbar cost me less then new turbine head for dc08, we never owned upright before so I wasn't going to part with well over 400 for new one just to try it, the DC08 served us well but newer technology like the powered brush makes a lot difference vs the turbine, I'm just surprised that the DC08 still works after 10 years ownership specially when we have long hair german shephard  and apart 1 strip down didn't touch it, DC08 is a lot heavier then dc25 but it doesn't get clogged up like the dc25, but after reading few reports I don't think I will own newer dyson then DC25 it does everything I want plus is easy to work on unless dyson will make one that will hoover the house on is own  :whist11:

I wouldn't want it, why would you want a robot to do one of the most enjoyable house keeping tasks?
