The DC07 is the best Dyson for me!   I have the clutched model so it is suitable for my laminates as well as carpets.  I think it is built better than the other models.  It is more robust than the later models and I believe performs better than the new "Balls". Does anybody else think this?

Looks like the DC07 is nudging ahead up to now!  :-*

I too like the dc07 but I have a dc14 at home.
The dc07 are rare here and I sell them fast.
I find it interesting to note that no one has voted for any of the cylinder models!
As I have said elsewere in this forum I don't like them much. I have the dc22, 23 and two dc05 models. the 22&23 are the show models but I have never sold one. I always convince the customer to but a upright. The two dc05.s are used in the show room and workshop as I can't sell them ( they are rare here too).

I find the dyson cylinder models a bit poor in the suction department compared to the competition.
Here in SA the 22 sells for 390.00 and the dc23 490.00 they are very expensive and there suction is poor compared to the competition that cost 190.00

The uprights rule by far. I think dyson needs to put the same inovation that it puts into its uprights into its Cylinders

We probably sell one cylinder machine for every 200 or 300 uprights we sell. They are not so popular in the UK.

Well... I have to go with the DC14, had this model for 3 years now and not one glitch out of it. OK, its slightly on the weighty side but when it comes to cleaning this is the daddy!! :bow: great for all floor surfaces and very easy to maintain.
I recommend this model to anyone.

My DC24 is currently in bits broken.......

I have always thought, despite looking pretty cool, the DC18 was a bit of a lemon.



We haven't seen one yet that doesn't need an undercarriage mechanism.

The dc18 does look cool, though very retro. They were very popular here in SA and I get a lot back with the undercarriage problem but some old South African ingenuity and a metal bracket and its sorted for life. The undercarriage breaks when things get stuck in the pipe coupler and you force the handle down breaking the coupler locator.

We do however get more dc14's back with blown motors almost 4 a week Thats a lot for us.

The motors are very similar to those found in a dc07 so I think it has to do with the higher RPM the newer cyclone stresses on the motor.

I never saw one of those DC18's.

That cyclone looks very small.

The cyclone on a dc18 is exactaly the same size as that on a dc25 although dyson says there is a differance in capacity I have put them side by side and can't see any difference in size . the only difference is the red plastic rod that releases the bin lid

Hi there,
I am a repairer in Australia and my favourite is definately the DC08. It is so easy to pull apart and the shops sold tons of them here so they are a great source of income for me.
I like the DC04 for reliability though they are rock solid.  :icon_nod:

I have a vacuum shop in Cape Town South africa
I also like the dc08 they are so simple to work on the motor change must be one of the easiest of all vacuum cleaners.$$$$$$
I personally love my dc15 and 25.That I have at home
As far as the most frustrating to work on , the dc25 is definitely up their with my worst

S0 easy to repair, just takes ages for the Cyclones to dry out after giving them a good blasting!
