I was at my local recycling center lately and noticed this Dyson in the electrical appliance recycling section.
It looked barely used, I had never seen one of these before and most importantly it was complete so I took it home.
The switch on the handle for turning on/off was stuck but was an easy fix. I stripped it down, cleaned everything and re assembled.
The motor has very little wear. I always liked the DC05's. Are these motor head versions rare as I have never come across one before.
