Hello, dear friends!
I have found this forum via googling, unfortunately I don't remember which keywords exactly -
perhaps something like DC-40, DC-35 - these are the models I have recently bought, so I wanted to get as much information as possible since there are few officially sold Dyson products in my location.
My impressions from using these vacs have exceeded all possible expectations though my joy from the owning was alloyed a bit by several breakdowns. Firstly, the motor on my previously owned DC-31 burnt out ( the seller agreed to change it for DC-35), the other trouble was the battery which did not work (luckily it was also changed for good one).
Nevertheless it didn't stop me from getting the second DC-35 for my car and DC-40 for the flat. Hope I will find a lot of useful information here and will be able to help others within my power.
