DC41 Wand
« on: October 27, 2018, 02:48:43 PM »
Hi.

Does anyone know what holds the red plastic part on the end of the aluminium tube? On the cheapie Dc41 I picked up it's not attached and seems a loose fit.

Thanks.

Most things like this are on Beko's strip down topics, in this case >>here<<.

The DC41 wand is glued together on the plastic dark grey pole and red upper part.
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.

Thanks for the info Parwaz.

Beko doesn't separate the red top from the pole so that's why I asked. I'm wondering if I should just buy a replacement.

The DC41 does seem to clean well but feels flimsy if you know what I mean? Mainly that they will crack at the bottom of the spine (mines now fibreglassed) and a good bash of the head will kill it.

I think theyíre brilliant machines, The flexible is so  that it can withstand bumps and bashes, try bending the chassis of an older Dyson and itíll crack. With a newer one they just have more flex to reduce the cracking.

They certainly clean well but as I said the base on the one I bought had cracked right through and the air passages had cracks in them too. Could be it had been abused. Anyhow I've got my hands on a DC25 and a DC08 that both need work so I've ordered more stuff from MV. This will be the second motor I've bought (for a different Dyson!), the delivery seems quick and ordering easy.
