We have had a Dyson dc18 for many years. We purchased it refurbished also and never had any problems with it. I didn't read the instructions and just found out it had a washable filter. I washed it after 7 years although it had no loss of suction. I also dropped it many times when vacuuming because i'm handicapped.yes it is plastic but very durable.So' I took it upstairs and bought a Dc40 for downstairs.It seems just as durable with equal suction.I don't think I would ever buy another brand.There is no playing with bags to change.Just push the button and empty the canister.
