DC41: Bin Find
« on: March 16, 2016, 11:13:56 PM »
Its been awhile since I've posted anything lately, anyway, well i found this on last Saturday and i thought well its probably  big time that's why its in there, anyway i took it and of course yes I did ask for it, to give me something to do. when i got home i stuck it in the shed and deal with it the next day.

So the next day had begun. it was 11:00am and i thought lets get cracking. Now I've seen it in the day light its worse state than i thought. so before i powered it up i thought i would strip it right down and clean it and check it along the way. everything seemed fine until i got to the PCB.

Whoah!



That probably wont be the worse so lets clean it and check it, everything's good!, on to the motor, i didn't take a picture but i wish i had, i couldn't see the metal casings on the motor, so i got the air compressor going and gave it a right good blast out, ah that's better, i gave the casings it was well and its a lot cleaner, time to put it back together.

Power up time, Um a bit loud but it works i suppose. Its a bit like Sam's needs a motor i think, i wonder where im gonna get one of those. it needs a hose and the release clip for the cyclone.









Not too bad i rekon for absolutely nothing apart from a thank you from the dump guy. What do we all think?

Wish I found a modern Dyson, like your DC41! I would be lucky to even find a vax on the road, people take everything!!! Even an ironing board

We put our washing machine outside to throw it out, it went within..... um 1 hour I think :o  Nobody even knocked on our door either
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.

Yep! It wasn't an issue when I was a kid, cos I saw a green Dc07 once, a Dc04 lime, a DC04 lime from my Auntie's neighbour's house and 2X DC01's before DC04's were everywhere, ah I miss those days!

Nothing like finding something useful! I found 2 large fridges outside a pub today, the ones with the glass doors to put WKD and other drinks in behind the bar. Lovely! ;)

Thanks Kerry ;D I see he has it on gumtree too, sadly I don't get on with cylinder vacuums unless it's a really fancy Dyson one or a Henry

Lol I find that DC07'a and the modern cylinders have the most value 😂
And animal machines do too

Shame the DC04 only gets 1 attention 😁
I was hoping I could at least trade mine upto get a
DC24i next, would be a great runaround daily vac
With my Cockatiels dander and it's small so I wouldn't go
Walking into in the dark at night like I have been with the DC04

Sorry I meant DC08 instead of DC07 lol

and I have a DC24i!!! It's blue ;D It's a good vacuum but for some reason the filter gets dirty quickly, I would say a DC25 is better for a house and DC24's are good for flats, upstairs vacuums, car vacuums or bedroom vacuums lol


Still a good vacuum but quite problematic, unless you inherit the guarantee :thumbsup:

Sadly they discontinued them a few years ago, DC25 got discontinued last year after 7 years of production, but they sold well like hot cakes :)

You can trade in any Dyson dual cyclone vacuum to Dyson and you get a discount on a new ball (DC40 onwards sadly) and DC19 and DC28C

I dont mean to sound rude, but if I was to wake up in the middle of the night and go downstairs I would turn all the lights on :)) Why do people say that? haha
