Maybe they've improved since I last had one but the one I had turned out to be a case of style over function. Looked good but was average. Failed after a couple of years which was apparently not unusual then.

Highly recommend a 'Henry' click here It'll suck up floorboards (slight exaggeration for effect) :o)

The tools provided give you an 'upright' nozzle.

thanks for your reply, I have used henries before but had a few faults the hoses did not last kept splitting, the motors did not last. When woking were good.

We have a miele pull along type but the trouble with them is they spew out a fine dust.Good points motor lasts and adjustable suction 300-1800.

thanks, I will look round for the best price now, shops round this way do not have big discounts yet as there no evidence of the credit crunch in the shops.

thanks, we only have 2 electrical stores in town now used to have several, left with debenhams and tesco non food outlet neither have reductions yet.

We've had a Dyson DC04 for longer than I can remember and it works as well as it did when it was new. Unfortunately, I think Dysons are no longer made in the UK which is one of the reasons we bought one.

thanks for feedback had a look online the cheapest is "discount electrics" but i'm not too sure if its a reliable site or not. then amazon is the next best deal still £80 cheaper than high street prices.

not too sure where these TV programes get the shops with the big discounts from, its not round this way.

We have two Dyson uprights. A DC01 and a DC07 Animal.

I've replaced a brush bar, one belt and a set of wheels on the DC01 since purchase.

No replacements on the DC07, but the hoses on both have split near the end and I've had to shorten the hose and re-attach as a result.

(Two vacs to save carrying one up and down stairs)

My wife found Dysons much too heavy (use of one arm only) but she recently bought the new one, the one which goes round corners, and swears by it.

I can't get on with it though.
