i have had my Dyson dc01 for 15 years and it just wont stop working :) sure its old and out of date but that doesn't mean that it is a bad vacuum. i must say when they came out they where a little pricy but i guess you get what you pay for :P they just don't want to die. most people change the belt and say they perform better but i have never had to replace a belt and i can say it works wonderful, they are good old made in England wonders that work better than modern vacuums with out the… Read Full Review

This Dyson DC01 was bought for me by my husband as a surprise as the old hoover kept letting us down. This was over 20 years ago. It has had a new hose, wand, fan belt and foot plate and is going as well as when it was first purchased. The brushes will be the next buy as they are wearing down.Thank you Dyson, money well spent. I would have liked to know that the lack of suction from the hose was a result of blocked filters, which when changed worked perfectly… Read Full Review

I bought my DC01 when they first came out nearly 20 years ago. The sales lady in Currys recommended it as I had a cat. I recommended it to my sister in law when she needed a new vacuum cleaner and she discovered that Dyson had reduced the power on subsequent models as people were finding the suction too powerful thus making them hard to push! Luckily mine has full power! 20 years on it is still going strong. I've had to replace the hose, but Dyson sell spares on their website. I love my Dyson… Read Full Review

I have owned my DC01 since Feb 1996 and have only ever had one problem - to replace the belt when it got something caught round it.
It is still going strong, still on the original brush though we really ought to replace it now.
It has only ever lost suction when the tube gets clogged and if we leave the filters in too long. I haven't bought any new filters in 5 years as they are now washable and last a long long time.
The srervice engineer came once towards the end of the guarantee period… Read Full Review

Bag-less, so no bags, however such a messy job to empty, defeats the object.
-Poor build quality, local Dyson engineer is like family I know him so well from so many call outs during the guarantee period.
-Not particularly good at it's job
-You can get the same thing (that's probably better) from another brand for a fraction of the cost
So the first and only Dyson I ever bought. Clever advertising however… Read Full Review

I have had my Dyson DC0 1 since early 2000~and it is still going strong and does a good job on my carpets and constant cat fluff.
Often needs declogging by removing the base plate
frequently needs a good clean
machine is rather heavy
the hose does not easily reach up the stairs
tends to topple when using the hose
long hair and threads do bind around the roller
the long narrow crevice tool is not very long to reach under the sofa~and the bulbous bit prevents it fitting very far under low… Read Full Review

I'd have been happy if I bought my Dyson DC01 super cheap second hand, but otherwise, not at all impressed. Annoying build, awkward shape. I even found the cord tie annoying. No good for corners or small areas. And the list goes on. No recommend!… Read Full Review

I bought a Dyson DC01 upright cleaner about 15 years ago when they were quite new. It has cleaned my family home brilliantly, but I made sure I used only genuine Dyson filters, which were disposable until the last few years when they made washable ones. I find it very easy to unblock the hose when new carpet fibres tend to build up. My secret weapon being an adapted wire coat hanger! I have replaced the drive belt a few times - no problem. My concern now is whether I should try one of the… Read Full Review

Other reviewers have spoken of a loss of suction and suggested checking the narrow airways for blockages. These checks are worth doing but the main problem is that even the genuine Dyson belt hardens and elongates by up to 50% over time. This means that although the suction may be optimum, the rotating brush does not have enough torque to pick up hair etc. I replaced the belt and the improvement was amazing… Read Full Review

I have had this for almost 10 years. I bought the special 'Antartic' edition - only difference was the colour of grey and blue.
It has never gone wrong, and always worked at full power. We accidentally sucked up the power cable which led to a few nicks and it stopped working. Luckily this was within a metre or two of the plug, so I cut the cable and reattached the plug and all works well - albeit 2m shorter....
I love the design of the Dyson DC01, and the constant full power and the ease at… Read Full Review
