And another DC02 DeStijl, I already have one but I couldn't leave it! It's filthy but works and only cost me 3

Yup tansley again!!
And that DC02 still works great, I've just uploaded a video of it:)
Now I was cleaning up a few granules of kitty litter when I noticed that the turbine head was really loud, and I took it apart and I've somehow managed to chip SIX turbine fan blades on the turbine head!!

Wow! What a find with the Bissell!

WE have the exact same one, sometimes use it for Shampoo small areas but do use the VAX 6131 for more high-traffic areas. Keep it up!

Today on the carboot nabbed a VAX V-2000C Vacuum for free, but turns out the motor is burnt out, after 3, yes, 3 uses!

To be honest i'm only a bit dissapointed that it's burnt out as it was free, I would be ****** off if I had payed for it!

Ah ! My friend had that, but she had it for 1 week and then her husband was emptying it, he tripped on a stone, landed on the vax, broke it, and broke his arm in the process! They got a hetty to replace it:)

Funny Story

Yes, will be taking the VAX to the tip, can't believe after 1 months use (for these people I got it from probably about 3 uses) it has burnt out. Chinese manufacturing I suppose!

Hehe! Maybe it just got blocked as the user failed to clean the filter every 20 seconds as recommended...

Never thought of that, might have been blocked & overheated, that caused the motor to burn out.

Thanks dysondestijl!!!
