Not only are Dysons currently available in the US, there are also a number
of Dyson wannabes. I had the poor judgement to buy one of those knockoffs,
because I have been so pleased with the performance of my DC01. The
knockoff is a piece of junk - nowhere near as good as my old Dyson, which
is still going strong after more than 5 years.
I bought a DC04 3 years ago, supposedly for a mostly carpeted house.
First thing I did was taking down an internal brick/block wall, and
it was used to vacuum up all the dust and plaster. Since then, it
has been moved to a different house where it is used entirely for
clearing up building rubble, plaster dust, etc. The carpet brush
beater is excellent for getting plaster/brickdust out of the
crevices in a rough concrete floor ;-) The only thing that has
gone wrong with it was due to me dropping something heavy on it,
and Dyson supplied a replacement part free, even though I told them
it was my fault. It will probably need a new hose soon as the sharp
bits of brick don't seem to be doing that much good, but otherwise
it's fine. I would not have bought it for such use in the first place,
and although it's spent all its life in the middle of building site,
I am careful not to bash it around, knowing it to be fragile.
However, it's been just fine, and very effective.
