Ametek has less suction but it is quieter and most DC01's have it so its traditional

YDK ones are found in mainly late DC01's and are louder (higher pitched), sound more like DC04's and groom the carpet better IMHO and have better suction. It's up to you now :)

PS I *think* the YDK ones spin at a faster RPM which probably explains the better brush grooming power, as there is a difference inperformance vs an Ametek DC01 with the same brush from personal experience
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 motors are not interchangeable though, you can only replace like with like. You will struggle to find any DC01 motors new anywhere.

I have a new grey/yellow DC01 cyclone unit and bin just in case of use.

What he said^

It's a pain to convert a Dc01 to use a diff motor, you will need a new motor, new motor housing, bottom housing, both rubbers and the spinal cord because the connections are different to the motor :S

Thanks for the info, but I decided not to refurbish it as I've got a new one in box anyway.
