Hi Dyson - fans how do you identify the early MK1 DCO7s rated at 330AW, by their colours/names or serial numbers ?
Are the later models a better machine and what are best clutched or no clutch? which colour plastics are more durable ? which model Allergy, Animal, All-Floors, Origin, Standard, what do readers think is the best DC07 ?
Hi, My input for what it's worth.
Cannot answer all your questions but I can comment on some. My main DC07 is a
Made in Malaysia
Purchased new 27/06/2008 (£159.99) and still going strong, no breakages, cracks, nothing. Colour YELLOW.
Yellow cyclone top and yellow toe piece.
Non Clutch model.
Has a reinforced double handle at top of cyclone, which indicates to me the it is a later improved model as the single handles break (according to research)
Further research (in Angus Black's book) will tell you that Yellow is one colour to look for because of it's longevity. I concur and whole heartedly recommend this particular model.
I now have three - (two in reserve) - love them.
Don't let the noise put you off, they are loud (use ear muffs if you are not manly enough to use one of these)
