Kirby resale values?
« on: October 18, 2017, 06:40:29 PM »
Hi All,

Recently got myself a G4 with all the shampoo attachments, bags, belt, etc., for $25 USD.  I stripped it down and found it wasn't working because someone thought it was a good idea to use as a garage vac and sucked up nails, staples, bolts, washers and when all that was bound up good and tight, they tried to suck up a few pounds of leaves.  In any case, it's almost completed and I want to resell it but I'm unable to get a good idea of what these kits go for - prices are all over the place.  Does anyone have experience with these?

Thanks!

Although these are like 1K+ new they don't sell at worthwhile prices I'm afraid, around the same price of a Dyson in the same condition believe it or not
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.

I'm going to ignore you until someone comes in and tells me I can net $500 + a new car.  :whist11:

Good to see you, though!  I haven't been posting because the site was mysteriously blocked at work for a while... and I don't get on the computer much at home.
