Nice! I want a Kirby Sentria
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.

I miss my G5! Bought it at the car boot for a tenner with EVERYTHING. Had a dodgy tech drive though, and a loose handle. Tighten up of the handle bolt, and 15 for the bit of the tech drive that was broken later and it was amazing! Used it as a daily driver in our 1 bed flat for about 8 months, it really bought the pile up a treat!

Phenomenal suction through the tools too, and it wasn't too much of a faff to go round once in upright mode, then convert to cylinder mode and go round again. Used to clean the cars out with it too. It would slide under the bed with the handle flat too, so was easy to store. Still remember the noise the tech drive used to make, infact here is a video of it!

Would have another one in a heartbeat, just seen one on Gumtree for 50, but I don't have 50, and we have too much laminate for it to be much use now. The day we move into somewhere carpeted throughout though...

😂😂😂 wtf haha!
I honestly think Dysons are the best looking vacuum aesthetically as well, even a DC07 still looks modern!!
DC41 looks futuristic and that came out 5 years ago ;D

Dyson's look good when they are brand new but give it two or three uses and they can look very nasty. Aesthetically that is, You see all the dirt and dust you sucked up and it can look nasty. Its very dificult to get it looking clean without doing a full stripdown, While the bins can be wiped down ( after just a few uses they need buffing ) the cleaner head is were the dirt can get trapped.
One of the things I liked about the dc07/14 and older models was you couldn't see the brush which can get pretty messed up. Its winter here currently and with everyone from kids to the animals coming in from outside with wet shoes , my dc41 has a lovely mud colored cleaner head.

Machines like Sebo look neat no matter how full of dirt they are. To me Kirby and in my case Royal are by far much nicer to look at than any plastic vacuum.

I have one of these I am trying to flog, awful colour but I have given it a full service. No interest. Kirby has the worst depreciation value of any vacuum cleaner.
