BARGAIN DC41
« on: April 18, 2016, 01:03:03 AM »
At my local general auction this evening having a good look around I come across this DC41 now the rules of the auction is electricals are sold as scrap and are not allowed to be plugged in.

Anyway it came up and I won it for 18!

Got it home to find everything works on it perfectly and that it had never been Registered

Nice! I miss my 1300W DC41, because of the large cleaner head and sharp DC33 suction at the hose but not a bad vacuum as long as it's looked after :) You keeping it?
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.

15?! My God  :o My best bargain was a 15 DC40 blown up with a broken stabiliser wheel last year!  :'(

Ps I agree, the DC14 cleans better but the Mk2 is impressive performance wise, think that and the cinetic are Dysons best performers :)

Some reason the DC41 heads are weird, the old style takes a few passed to pick up threads and string from a carpet, wheeas a DC14 picks it all up in 1 pass and grooms better  :boggleeye: maybe it's because the rollerwheel is too high?
