That poor Dyson had hay, fluff and lint all backed up to near the cyclone entrance.
Took a bit of unblocking and now I have an excellent Dyson!

Kirby Classic 3 with handi-butler, shampooer, shag king, normal dusting attachments and a spare wand. The bag was being washed in the washer at the moment the picture was taken.

Dyson DA001

It has a different head, hose, soleplate,brushbar, and cable.

That is the correct cyclone just the new stickers where added when dyson "Restored" it. I have one for display that is all correct!

Thanks for the correction!

Quick question: would a 240volt vac work on a 220volt electric supply? I've seen electrical devices listed as 220-240volts. Little confused here....

Post# 185061 , Reply# 22   6/10/2012 at 13:33 (2,857 days old) by jakesvacs ()        

Yes the vacuum cleaner would work. When you see 220 to 240v vacuum cleaners it is because every household is different as to how much energy they take in. I think ours was 237v. You may also see vacuums rated 1000 to 1200 Watts on the sticker, I think this may also have something to do with the amount of energy the house has going to it.

Some cool looking vac's there.
I must admit i've never used a Dyson. I've sometimes considered getting one but never quite managed it (not sure why).
The DC01's are definitely my favourite Dyson from a looks perspective, great looking things.
How do Dyson's perform, do they actually retain suction compared to a bagged vac' or is it just Mr Dyson's marketing hype? (This isn't meant to be contentious i'm genuinely curious as a newbie who's never used one).

Thats a big numatic! Surprised a few of those CDs have not already been sucked up into it!

Rutger- Dysons are very good bagless vacuums. I would say grab yourself a Dc01, they are sturdy and very good! Their suction I have never found to drop during normal vacuuming but anything like huge amounts of plaster dust and the filters will need washing. If you mainly collect bagged vacuums a Dc01 looks quite a piece next to a hoover junior!

The Dyson cleaners do not lose suction in the same way as a bagged cleaner does, or indeed other bagless cleaner. There has been a good deal of testing, reports, and court cases over this issue not to mention complaints about advertisements from rival manufacturers and indeed Dyson over the rival's advertisements about all sorts of claims being made. But even so, a Dyson will lose power if the filters are not kept clean and free from the dust which naturally escapes from the cyclone tank. As I understand it, the no loss of suction aspect refers only to the method used to capture what the cleaner picks up and not the filtration. I have found that it does take a very long time for the filters in a Dyson to become problematic, so it is not really a big deal I think, not like other bagless cleaners which utilise the filter as a way of keeping the entire contents of the tank in the tank.

I mean if they were to be improved and then re-released the fan made a little more durable and deeper, the brushroll stiffer poly bags better grade plastic housing an easier hose set up

I loved the original Broomy. If DD brought out a newer version, it could be an effective rival to Oreck, but hopefully much cheaper, certainly here in the UK.
