Hi, I buy from auctions usually liquidation or returned goods.
Last week they had the usual DC33 41's etc, but as i'm an idiot, I bought a V6 Absolute.
Again, as i'm an idiot, I bought it blind. I picked it up and the return label says "Returned due to poor quality and lack of suction" I would argue that all of these handhelds left the factory that way. (I used to work in retail and people would return the handhelds all the time, even when the description clearly stated charge time 45 days, running time 3 seconds.)
The good news? It works and I believe all the attachments are there.
the bad news? The middle filter and the post main filter are missing.
The non-powered attachments don't work without the pink tube. I've read the instructions and it never shows the attachments directly connected to the handheld? This is strange?
I was recommended this forum by Beko as we are both members of another forum and as I was spamming his inbox with nonsense I decided to post here instead.
The issue I have is, the middle filter is £9.99 which is fine, the post main filter, I can't find one for less than £40. If I spend the £50 I will barely break even, Beko suggested either sell in bits. Attachments etc, or just throw the lot on Ebay as-is.
p.s.I haven't cleaned it.
