The power of a Dyson DC39 and the danger of turbo brushes
« on: December 14, 2016, 10:57:33 PM »
I was using my absolute gem of a vacuum today (the Dyson DC39) as it's a nice, quiet yet powerful machine similarly like Henry's are ;D

So I was cleaning out another vac I had with it and decided to use a turbo brush on the little rug that got dirty, so I used a vax turboforce mini turbo brush with the MVacs adaptor (such a good adaptor btw  :icon_nod:)

When I attached the turbo brush onto my DC39 I decided to let it spin for a few seconds to see how fast it would go, it was spinning so fast, like literally it was a high pitched turbo brush at this point.

Suddenly... BOOM!  :censored: :'( :o It felt like a mini bomb was inside the turbo brush because it literally exploded, the soleplate went flying across the room (about a few feet), the turbine shattered into about 15 pieces all over the floor and I'm amazed at how powerful the DC39 was to spin the turbo brush so fast to make it break :o The turbo brush was even held together by a secure clip holding it all together properly!

Gotta love Dyson suction! ;D If this doesn't amaze you about Dyson power I don't know what will.

I'm not too bothered because I had a spare turbo brush anyway.
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.

Less impressed with dyson suction, more impressed with poor vax build quality!

Even Vax tools are tragic.  :'(

Me and different family members have had so many different types of vax machines
Vax 6140 3 in 1 tub vac
Vax power 1 upright
Vax air total home (latest one)
Vax bagless cylinders
Turbo force upright
All have been crap! Except the 6140 which was then again brittle like a faded DC07
The turbo force has weird wheels and soft bristled but somehow cleans alright :)

I hate the rest of the Vax machines though made after the turboforce

Now my entire family, relatives and neighbour's up to 5 doors down own a Dyson ;D but about 4 own Henry's
