      Re: dyson vacuums

      I have a 2003 DC07 animal [the purple one].

      Around 2006 a small hose failed and I replaced it. The hose tore.
      After 7 years the hinge on the dust collector part broke. I replaced it.
      The other day I noticed some plastic broken on the cyclone assembly.
      I just ordered a replacement, even though it does not effect the operation what so ever.

      I find this "older" model has a larger capacity than the newer version dubbed as the "animal".

      Some comments here...

      Try to find affordable replacement parts for other 7+ year old vacuums?
      I had a Fantom and when it broke it was unserviceable! And if parts were offered they were not cost effective.

      The reason you now see even cheap cyclone style vacuums out there has to do with the patent...This is similar to the Fein Multimaster tool and all the knock-offs we have today.

      So..compare the Harbor Freight $29.99 Multimaster tool to the Fein Multimaster tool.....For some the twenty nine dollar tool will work fine.
      For others the Fein is the only way to go....

      I use our Dyson almost daily two large dogs and AZ is very dusty!
      The unit is powerful, reliable, does not loose suction etc....I sound like a commercial!

      I do one thing though most don't and that is every few weeks I take the cyclone assembly outside and blow out the fine dust with compressed air. The dust is like talcum powder and if left alone will eventually kill the vacuum. I also wash out the permanent filter every few months or so.

      You get what you pay for..and anything you get will fail or break if not properly used or maintained.

                  I have thought that a Festool or similar quality level shop vac (or as they call it Dust Collector) could double as a house vac. The Festool vac has adjustable power/suction and is very quiet for a vacuum. You can get HEPA filters or
                  standard filter bags. Standard vacuum acceessories and tools are available in both steel and plastic. For what you would pay for a Dyson that you would use occasionally you can buy a Festool and use it in the shop and the house, but you'd never use your Dyson in the shop connected to your router table or random orbit sander, it would be dead in 20 minutes I bet.

                  The new central vac systems even have hose storage in the wall so you never have to drag the hose out of the closet, just grab whatever tool you need and the wand and you're off and running.

                        Wife loves ours. Got her the cordless and she loves that too. $300 for a "dust buster" entitles me to buy pretty much anything I want for my shop... Win/Win

                          wife wanted one last year. I was convinced that the only thing exceptional about it was the marketing. She wanted it because it was yellow.... So we got one, I used it, & holy b^t$hit , this thing works! We have a long-hair cat & I've never seen so much hair come out of the carpet. So on the positive side, it works great. On the negative, I'm not able to tell my wife "I told you so".

                          Ironically, she wanted it because it was yellow but ended up getting the red one instead..

                            Wow, apparently these are not as crap as they look on tv. I stand corrected.

                            I still want to know wtf is 'digital' about an electric motor, or why it's rpm can possibly matter when you can just gear up to anything you want. Any time that kind of talk starts flying around my bs detector goes off and it's hard to waste time on the rest of it.
