OT: slightly dyson DC01 about to die, time to replace


D

DC01_RIP

I seemed to have killed my wife's dyson DC01 after 5 years of using it to
tidy up after diy, still it worked well :)

I am now looking to replace the dyson with a newer model, but there are so
many

I need an upright for both hard floors and carpet, which one should I buy ,
but more importantly which ones should I avoid ?

currently considering the DC07 ???

I think you just lit the blue touch paper... stand back!

(cue massive thread on merits of Henry Vs Dyson)

I have a DC14 Animal (quite similar to the DC07) and an old DC01. I have
been very pleased with the DC14. It fixes all of the design niggles of
the 01, and has very decent suction. Makes a great job of carpets.

sorry let me correct my self. I have just found a Henry in coments , its the
thing with the face on.

Why should i take a product seriously when it has a face on it, unless they
do a more sensable looking upright .

Because it works bloody well. I think you can get a powered head for it,
and it'll still be significantly less than a Dyson. And near
indestructible, in comparison.

What a stupid thing to say

It's just laughing at all those people who buy Dysons

Henrys are great if you want a cylinder, but they are no substitute for
an upright. For carpets, an upright is far easier to use. The best
solution is a decent upright for carpets, and a decent cylinder (such as
a Henry or a Karcher) for other stuff.

You don't need an upright, get a Henry with a Turbo head
http://www.numatic.co.uk/products4.asp?id=23

It willl run rings around any Die Soon. Different class altogether.

Henry with a turbo brush (24v not the air driven one) gives all the benefits
of both machines.

Best upright ever made is the Sebo http://www.sebo.co.uk/Pages/bs4636.html

I must disagree. An upright is much less fiddly. Cylinders are good for
some things, but uprights are just less work.

I've never used one, but I have been extremely happy with our bagless
Panasonics - very robust, quite cheap, and a pleasure to use.

I'm very fond of my DC03 - but I didn't pay for it. I left that to the
nice bloke who then FreeCycled it because the cable was broken where it
left the plug.

I felt rather embarassed that it'd been so easy to fix and offered it
back to him, but he'd bought another by then.

It sucks a lot better than our old Panasonic, and a new beaterbar isn't
£30+VAT.
