dc27 surprise
« on: March 11, 2016, 07:06:46 PM »
I hate the dc27, in fact I would say the only good thing about it is that once striped the chaise will stand up on its own.

So the last time I bought a job lot I wast to pleased it included 4 dead dc27s.  I stripped one today and had a plesant surprise, the motor wasn't  dead, but I bet when this went the person using it had a heart flutter.

But then seeing this, I think they deserved it.

How the heck do people do that :o

I never played with a DC27

I was told they clean better than DC33's- Do they?
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.

It's the mains cable, just on the bend of the grommet
