Hi all, does anyone know where I can get spare parts for a dyson DC07 vacuum cleaner ? I need to get a new hose section.

Thanks

Sounds about right, I once needed a part and went there to get it. Can't remember the reason now, but I was unable to make payment at that point in time, and the lovely gentleman said I could just take it first, and make payment another time.

Item value was about $70 I think. It took me 7 months to get round to doing it!

Wonder if he's still there.

I'm guessing he lost his job.

I'll give you $100 if it's in perfect condition with all paperwork. And I'm being generous.

I'd consider $100 for it too, depends on the model, condition and paperwork.

Why does every local assume that they can buy things and resell them for more? I don't get that. Generally old things depreciate... I think gahmen's lessons about people monetizing their HDBs has been interpreted the wrong way :P

I had an ex-girlfriend that I nicknamed Dyson - not because she gave great blowjobs, but rather because she used to suck up every last pound I earned....

Judging by experience on places like hardwarezone's marketplace, I assume he was marking it up. You know, like the guys selling iPhone 4s for $200 more when Singtel has plenty of stock :P

You know why Dyson is becoming very crappy. ? it is made in Senai, Johor, Malaysia by a sub con mfg named VS Industry. The worse is all of their workers come from Bangladesh

Dyson makes some of the best hoovers (yeah, I know this word is a separate brand...) out there, so I wouldn't call them crappy, that's for sure.

Their fan does look like an expensive gimmick though. :)

Yeah, Rainbow does as well, but neither are worth the money being charged.

Is the Rainbow still around? :)

Now that was an expensive appliance... and the marketing bs that came with it was just funny, like "technology used in jet engines". Yeah, right...
