Cleaning with compressed air
« on: November 26, 2012, 02:34:22 PM »
I have a 2 HP compressor that I use for paint spraying. Is using the blower on this to clean my DC07 a good idea, and will it achieve as a good a result as washing?

I think I would rather wash them myself, but compressed air is what many use and it would be my second choice.

I assume we are talking about cyclone cleaning?

Yes - sorry - should have said the cyclone... I'll give it a go now I know how to get into it, from the excellent book by Angus.. I've ordered new pre and post motor filters too, never know about the post filter before. Our DC07 is about 7 years old I think so it likely needs the post motor one changing, we've done our share of plaster bashing here.

Thanks    Chris
