The DC40 is good for hard floors (if the roller wheel is intact where the plast plastic is in the middle of the head underneath the vacuum with the brushroll) and the DC07 is good for carpets and hard floors. Both have the ability to turn the brush off. The Dc07 has much stronger suction but the DC40 has a large debris channel
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.

Yes but the DC07 lacks the large debris channel the DC40 has sadly.

Jean is in the US. US models all have a wide debris channel.

DC07 for the carpet and DC40 for the hard floors, Jean.

I'm sure the Dc07 didn't in the US either despite the bumper being fatter, weirdly :/ 14's and 33s have a little hole in the middle, above the soleplate for big bits to be sucked through

If the UK/US colour schemes follow the UK rule, does your 07 have a clutch or not? If not, then DC40 as you can turn the brushroll off.

That wide baseplate looks odd too!

Interesting, the DC14 has a big hole where it sucks up large debris  from the bumper and the smaller stuff gets sucked through the soleplate via the brushbar agitating

I always found it odd as to why US models had a wider soleplate but reading your DC17 thread I learnt that it helps with grooming carpets and leaving tracks on US carpets :)

I am not aware the US got non clutched machines. I dont think they did. That would follow with the US market demanding simplicity.

If a belt snapped they would charge back the payment for the machine if in time (chargeback seems to replace customer service often there). Also, I wouldnt want the job of explaining to some bint in a double wide in Kansas how to change a belt. Or that a belt is a consumable. Not gonna happen is it? I reckon Dyson followed the same logic.

The US only got 1 non clutched model (DC07 Carpet) which is a blue DC07 toolkit in the UK ;) it's rare over there

Also, Kansas? I never understood the stereotype :))

Indeed we did get a non clutch model for a short time, as parwaz said they are quite rare over here. I'm lucky enough to have one. I think they stopped selling them quickly for simplicity reasons as MVacs said. Furthermore I do understand the Kansas stereotype, even though my mother is from there  :-X

As for the present topic, I agree with Mvacs. Dc07 for carpets and dc40 for hard floors.
