After many years of thinking about it and watching many of "Roger's" videos, I decided to start my own YouTube channel. I plan to make mine more of a "How To" and "Watch This" type of channel. At some point, I'll have some videos of how I test, including using an inexpensive anemometer and airflow box.

I need to work on my facial expressions a bit more...

Lol. Yea this is why I can't stand dysons. I used to have one and my mother has been through 2 of them. The 1st she gave to my brother. When they call me and tell me that they don't suck anymore I usually just go and take out all the filters and them run hot water through the cyclone thing. I hold both hands over the larger holes and shake it several times. I repeat this until the water flows clean. The. I sling that thing around and the leave it to dry. As for the "washable" dyson hepa filters... they are trash. I need to order them some new ones. They can't be washed and the carbon dust just cakes on them.

Good quality on that video. I also like the Kirby cleaning the dyson.

The first time I cleaned out my DC14 I used a leaf blower. It looked like I was in a dust bowl. I could not belive all the caked on dust in the cyclones.

This is why my Dyson Cinetic is in storage. With my dust allergies I would be sneezing for hours if I had to clean out the cyclones like that.

Great videos. Would definitely like to see you video some of your tests with the results.

At the vac shop out here--Dysons of all types come in to get unclogged-and yes,the cyclones get stuffed full of carpet fluff,dog,people hair,and other sorts of stuff.The filters get clogged,too as well as the Dyson vacuums NARROW airpassages.You find a treasure trove of stuff clogging those-you name it-its been found there!So much for the vacuum cleaner that never clogs!

I am excited about your channel, because I do the same kind of tests in my "Vacuumtests" channel.
Nice to see your Kirby G6.
I can't wait to see the upcoming videos!

Good Lord the first shop I worked on was overwhelmed with Dysons! I think I would have 5 or 6 cyclones torn apart to be washed at a time. I don't do half as many Dysons now that I'm running a Vac Business out of my house, but my God they get dirty!
