i have one, mainly because I was given it!!

I like the retro look of the soft bag, i like the headlight. buts its just a glorified sweeper in my opinion.

Nice tall handle, and an easy belt change.

I was going to say, they're just like one of those push along things but with a motor lol.

People say they are very loud carpet sweepers XD

YEs American schools and hotels used them, they also made a bagged hardbag upright which is like a Sebo, it's called "Oreck Commercial XL" IIRC
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.
