DC07 better than the DC04
« on: June 01, 2016, 12:32:19 AM »
Hi I cleaned the filter out a few days ago and used it today. But apart from a few cats and a dog I got a bit of dirt in the pre motor filter. Compared to when I use the DC04 I get no dirt that you can see but more like dirt is a lot smaller and hardly any. I thought the DC07 has got more cyclones which I thought would be able to capture more dust into the cyclone bin. But guess not. Is this normally the case.

Thanks :)

Well the DC07 filter should be cleaner than the DC04 one, maybe the DC07 cyclones need jet washing internally or something ;) Also, i depends how old the DC07 is. IF it's a really late model with a number 2 by he oulet hole i's a cyclone where the filers stay cleaner for longer. Earlier models dont have as efficient cyclones for some reason. They may have no number or a number 1 by he rubber seal in the same place.

I had a 2005 DC07 ORigin with a number 2 cyclone which was de rooted (large holes at the top of the cyclone to prevent clogging). We used that as our main vacuum every day for a few months and the cyclones were fantastic, the filter was spoless. I then decided to vacuum Shake N vac (not recommended)and the filter had some white powder on it afterwards from he fine dust of the freshener. 

Furthermore, the DC07 has a more powerful motor than the DC04 which produces more suction also. his means more air is being spun into he cyclones and a lot faster wiht the DC07 and the DC04 so I would say the DC07 is definitely better than the DC04 in pretty much every way (except the weight, noise level, bin capacity, post motor filter surface area and the weak bin flap pins & cyclone handle) Apart from that it's one of the best bagless vacuums in history every since bagless vacuums have come out :icon_nod:

PS I like your profile picture! Really nice :thumbsup:
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.

Oh true maybe, I did clean it last around 3 or 4 ish months ago but I will add some pictures to show you. Oh I can't find the number thing that you are mentioning. Good to know as I did not know that. Thanks.

Oh I did think that. How fast does the speed go in the cyclone then to spin the dirt away from the air. And I agree I love the DCO7 the design is so good. :)

Oh thanks and I do like yours, very good. Thanks

Is the DC07 the only dyson to have the clycones upside down than their other ones they've made.

Yup, some reason they were upside down on the 07 but all Dysons have had them pointing down (dual cyclone and root cyclones) and all the modern ones such as the cinetic have it the right way aroung

Does the cyclones work just as good as if they was like the DC14 or do they not as I personally don't see it being much different but I do think it may be better having it being small at the bottom and bigger at the top. Thanks

I'm actually not too sure TBH sorry but they made cyclones smeller and smaller as they are more effective than larger ones. They called it Root cyclones because the large DC01 and DC04 cyclones were *square rooted* into Dc07 sized cyclones which is why it's called Root cyclone ;)

Oh right, thanks. So more smaller/cyclones more better they are than the bigger ones. Thanks

No problem mate
Yes but there are limits- too small and they can clog, so that's why the cinetic ones are made of rubber despite being tiny so they vibrate and not clog :)

I would love to make my own cyclone to be added on to the a dyson. It'll be so cool. Aha
