- Hose placement at the front limits movement
- Hose kinks very very easily and stresses the motor
- Poorly designed catches for bin emptying
- Ridiculous placement for tools
I bought another DC08 because the one we had previously worked flawlessly for years. This one is the obvious result of all the outsourcing and costcutting that Dyson have done. It is a backward step. Why on a machine that will be used in a variety of positions around a home can they not design a hose that does not kink so fantastically easily is either because they do not possess the knowledge – but they do – or because they have taken a deliberate decision to produce a very poor alternative. Avoid this cleaner completely.
