Abandoned green? supposed DC04
« on: March 06, 2017, 11:44:31 PM »
Hey all,
My friend told me that she had seen a Dyson abandoned in a field near her (Burntwood) Said it was green, She couldnt remember if it was grey and green or purple and green since only got a glimpse of the back but looked like a DC04, Hence why its in the DC04.
Bearing in mind it now been left there for about a week, in rain, frost and a tiny bit of snow, with the odd bit of sun wondered if it was worth rescuing, and if so if someone would be interested if its still there and I can get hold of the location since im fulll with DC04's DC07's Titan vacuum cleaners and DC14's, Thats why ive turned down some DC01 and DC15 etc. ive been offfered - sadly due to my limited space.
However would this green and possibly purple or grey dc04? be worth rescuing now its been sat in a field for a week in all kinds of weather? If anyones interested I can try and get preciece location, All she has told me -

Go get it!
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.

Didn't Burntwood used to be a mental asylum?

Stop being a fool and get it, I found a flymo in the bush at the side of a road a few days ago, it works and I've made myself money.
