A US DC07 All Floors
« on: January 16, 2017, 11:36:00 PM »
Today I went and picked up a second hand DC07 all floors US model.  ;D

This has to be the cleanest best condition second hand Dyson I have ever bought !!

Complete with all 3 tools it shows minimal signs of use, and the only annoyance I have is that the hepa filter has been replaced with a pad which looks like its been washed  :'(

Enjoy the pics, I plan to eventually convert the machine to run 240v with a 3 pin plug.

The only noticeable difference is the brushbar has really stiff bristles compared to our UK DC07s and that the opening in the soleplate is much wider, other than that its about the same as a UK spec machine.

Yellow clutched is the bog standard here. Use a transformer, dont put one of those horrible ydk motors in it  :underchair:

Ohh I want a British American DC07, an american DC14 with the dark blue body, the low reach and full access in red along with a 17 ;D


The American ones all had clutches except the blue DC07 carpet model which about as rare as a DC02 DAS here, roughly. In Australia they had both clutched and clutchless DC07s and 14s in yellow

Apparently the American ones are quieter than the UK screamers but a YDK motor is much cheaper than a transformer ;)
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.

PS How stiff is the brushbar? As much as the stubborn dirt brushes?

Wish we had reliable motors! That died off since the DC04s with YDK motors came along
