Dyson cordless stick vacuum £149.99 with code MSE50

 

It's not the latest model and the charge only lasts 20 minutes on this one (but how long to you want to vaccum for anyway ....?). It's very cheap compared to the latest models however which are £££. 

 

Cordless Dyson Offer

 

we have been looking at getting one of these for a while so this is a great offer for us. thanks!

I had a V6 and the battery gave out after a couple of years, I replaced it and it gave out even sooner.

 

I spoke to our cleaning lady and she says hers did exactly the same.

 

It is a great product but this is a pain.

 

The V10 whilst much more expensive has a battery supposedly good for 800 full cycles, they suggest it is good for 15 years. I guess that's based on one cycle a week.

 

Anyway, I waited for the 10% off day at Ebay and bought a refurb with this offer, I am hoping it lasts a lot better than the V6.

 

I also bought a £90 Nilfisk Vac so I stop wasting my expensive vacuum on building work.

Dudley Moore, Francis Rossi (and his Dad's ice cream), Sarah Pascoe (though a Cornish name), A127 and A13.

I still have a soft spot for the place, the mud at Old Leigh.

YouTube showed me an advert for a compressor from lidl. Looks like they have a bunch of tools from Sunday. Not sure if link will work..

 

https://www.lidl.co.uk/en/MiddleofLidl.htm?id=1177&week=1

 

I like the idea of the built in hose reel on that compressor.

 

Tbh the Aldi compressor I bought, (£29.95 with multiple discounts applied, was £89.95) I use all the time. The attached hose could do with a reel facility though...

Thanks, I went in and spoke to them yesterday.

 

My car (Tesla Model X) has 275/45 R20 on the back and 255/45 R20 on the front.

 

These were on the website a week ago and it was roughly £150 cheaper than elsewhere between the £100 off and Costco being cheaper to begin with.

 

However, when you go to order them a full page of disclaimers comes up. Costco won't fit tyres of a different spec to those currently on the car, Costco will only fit tyres to the rear if you buy 2 etc.

 

I checked the spec on my car and the tyres have a Y speed rating. For some reason the 275 cross climates are Y rated and the 255s are W rated. W rated is max speed of 168mph and Y rated is 186mph!

 

So I went in to ask them if this was an issue. The guy said that Costco would not fit tyres of different spec to the front and rear axles of a 4wd car. Now I know that you do have to be careful because in a 4wd the axles are usually connected. I could have argued that this is not an issue in an electric car as there is no driveshaft between the axles. Also the speed rating is irrelevant as long as it is above the top speed of your car. But he wasn't going to budge. Internet searches suggest that Costco are entirely inflexible and stick to their rigid corporate policy.

 

By this point the 275 have also disappeared from their website. They couldn't explain why, but they wouldn't fit just 2 non matching tyres to a 4wd car anyway and they also won't fit tyres to the front axle only although I don't know how they are supposed to work the policy on car that have staggered tyre sizes like mine.

 

So that is that, a great deal but such a strict policy that many people cannot actually buy tyres there.

Oh! i think mine were all the same although the speed rating was different to the originals. I said I wanted Cross Climates, they looked them up, sold them to me and fitted them. That was at Costco at Lakeside though, not Edinburgh.

Interesting, the guy that I spoke to was quite vague. I might try ordering up 4 and see what happens. First I need to email them and ask where the 275s went.
