It will keep going no problem, just smooth off the rough bits.

Smooth off the rough bits?  I might wrap some barbed wire around it and use it for home defense!

My mate's DC41 was like that, I asked if he sucked up a marble or something, :/ I tried sucking up a marble with our old DC25 and it almost did that!!!
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.
