A Dyson vacuum cleaner seems to be an exercise in seeing how many 90 degree bends and sharp corners you can fit in the air path between the carpet and the bag oops! sorry - cyclone. Bags are inefficient, aren't they? He uses small paper filters instead, which you have to clean out after every use.  ::)

I wonder how long it'll take before the climate system on these cars clogs up? :-X

It'll take ages as the atmosphere will be much cleaner with all the electric cars charged up with clean renewable energy.  8)

I'm lucky, as clearly I have the only 4 reliable Dysons ever made...


...though, granted, after over 20yrs, the switch is becoming intermittent on the garage vac.

You must be....I bought a DC04 once....18 months old and 6 months after the warranty expired the motor in it caught fire....threw it away and wont buy another Dyson again.....

I must also be lucky too, our DC01 is still going strong and not faultered once, we now have a new V6 Ball thingy. The only thing that is annoying about it, is it keeps falling over for some reason....?

Some of them may be reliable, but they aren't much use for actually sucking up dirt of the floor. Get yourselves a Sebo. You will be amazed at the difference.  ;)

We have a DC1 from the Victorian era. It's semi-retired now but is still used to clear up brick dust, concrete, and general builders rubble.

Nope, not had that either, sucks pretty well on all but the cordless - even on full power, its at best adequate with the crevice tool. Pretty good with floor tools on, to the point of day to day vac'ing, its all she uses. Mains ones come out when there is more to do, as the cordless does have a hopelessly small collection container

Istr Mr DTM has a Sebo. Next time your visiting, take her with you and ask him for a demonstration. Its like comparing a 3.0 MV6 with a Desmond.  ;)

It might be unfair to call the Sebo a desmond. They are fine vacs ;)

I have a Sebo and they are indeed fine machines!  :y

The filters and bags are pricey though.  :-\
