DYSON DC07 UPRIGHT VACUUM CLEANER
For many years I have used an Orek vacuum cleaner as it is very lightweight. Unfortunately it broke down and was very expensive to repair so I looked on e-bay for an alternative and decided on this Dyson. I actually bought two of them as I have a large house and needed one downstairs and one for upstairs. On the plus side, these vacuums are super efficient. I have three dogs and like to clean daily because of dog hair and garden rubbish coming in on feet and was absolutely amazed at how good the Dyson is at picking up all dirt and dust. It is also very easy to unclip the front to clean out. So much so that the carpet in the breakfast room almost looks a different colour now! The tools are also excellent for getting into all the corners or the upholstery. The only downside I can see at the moment is that these machines are very heavy for me to move about but this is worth it for the cleaning power they offer. All in all, a very good buy.

Dyson does it!
After having my Dyson 04 and a replacement vaccume going bang on me with in a month of each other, i thought i was going to have to find either a expensive cleaner out of my range or get a cheep and nasty one that'll go bang and be needing another one very soon. Then i found out about a company that was selling reconditioned Dysons, and at £70ish pound for an 07 version, i jumped at the chance to get one!
It cleans so well, the first time i used it made me quite embarresed. The cleaning power was so much better than id ever sen before, or even expected!
It quite possibly, the best ill ever use!
Its also given life back to my carpets, bringing the pile back to almost new, and making the colours so much more vibrant!

DC07 - A good all rounder
I have had 2 DC07s now and have just bought one for my mother; would recommend to anyone - particularly refurbished ones around £70!
Minor criticisms: in spite of the big hype about not having filters, they do and need cleaning, particularly the Hepa's, but these are easily washed (don't puth them back in wet!). A friend was about to ditch her DC03 due to lack of suction until I cleaned the filter for her and brought it back to life!
Another reviewer complained about the dust when you empty it. If you put a bin bag around the cylinder before you pull the trigger (to open the bottom hatch)and hold it in place around the cylinder, dust is minimal; just don't squeeze the bin bag after! Do it outside. Also when you have emptied it and have closed the hatch, give the cylinder a few sharp slaps with your hand then empty it again; you'll be surprised how much more dust comes out. It's worth it once in a while to take it to someone who has a compressed air line (car repair or such) and give the cylinder a good blow through (now that is dusty!).
There is a warning in the manual about being careful when using the hose with the machine on the stairs - the powerful suck can (and does) pull it towards you if the nozzle becomes blocked and can be pulled down stairs (I know from experience!).
One more tip - don't try to clean up wet plaster with it; it picks it up but that's it for the cyclones!!!!

I'm professional cleaner and absolutly dislike this vacuum cleaner not only useless and uncomfortable on stairs as makes very unsafe for the person who operates but also clogs with dust inside the canister which you have to clean by hand.Emptying the canister is alway dusty job and dust just go everywhere including your nose.I had many klients who bought this vacuum and after a year or two they start to brake down,loosing its power.You have to replace filters very often .If you are thinking of buying one-don't.Instead look for Miele-The Solution is most suitable for most of the housholds.
