Nice Machine!

Looks like a Sebo nozzle on it, must be an amazing performer!

The wheel placement is interesting - it can spin on a dime.  The Lux Guardian/9000 did the same kind of thing except there was only 1 wheel in front.

Was it designed by NASA?

WOW, that's an impressive machine.  It looks like a cross between vacuum cleaner and lunar land-rover!   If only that exhaust filter was shaped more like a satelite dish....


All joking aside, I would love to see how it peforms.

I just looked at the website.  My NASA reference wasn't off the mark!   I agree, the website design is annoying to say the least.  Still, that's a very impressive vacuum cleaner.

Nice colors

I like the red color on this machine,my patriot has a gold label on its side and I think it's missing a round sticker below the handle.I need to call patriot to see if I can still get the round sticker.Mine came with the big foot power nozzle and I just found a pristine cinnamon roto matic power team that I kept the power nozzle from that has a helix shaped metal brush roll that works great with my patriot.

Built to last!!!!!

The patriot is also a very simple machine to service,not all that electronic junk that fails and collects dust in the motor compartment,just three screws and you are inside the machine.I find simple is best in the long run for reliability and performance. The Patriot has all those simple design features for a long life.

Schoettler research and engineering..

used to make the Airstorm and the Patriot with a choice of power nozzles. The Douglas was standard on the Airstorm which came in six colors. The Sebo was the nozzle for the Patriot. Interesting is the curved upper wand allowing reach under furniture without bending over. The Vortech used to have a six wheel design, and a cordwinder. Not sure if they are still around or not.

I have the Air Storm in the Red with the Sebo Power Nozzle. Cleans extremely well.

My Patrot

is just like that one. I bought it a year ago. The only difference is my power nozzle is more streamlined and not as boxy looking as that one. My other patriot(silvery gray and white model) has that big boxy looking power nozzle, and my airstorm has the Big Foot power nozzle and I don't like either one of those power nozzles. The new Patriot power nozzle seems to be more easy to use. Just my opinion...

Patriot offers 2 power heads. The Wessel-Werk and and the Sebo, which is in the picture.

Power heads..

How does the Wessel Werk P/N with its swivel neck work with the s-shape upper wand?
Would think they would work against each other. Or does the W/W cone with two straight wands?

Is that machine for sale? What do they cost? I think I'd like one. Any suggestions?

Could you post a photo of the brushroll of that nozzle? I have a nozzle for my Sebo canister that looks identical to yours but I'm disappointed in the single-brush brushroll. What does the Patriot's brush look like and how does it perform?

Post# 133802 , Reply# 17   4/23/2011 at 12:43 (2,374 days old) by vacman33 (Grand Junction Colorado)        

Here is the brushroll for ya. And yeah I would sell it, but I want alot for it they are $3000 new, but I would sell this one for $2000. Anyway the S wand works ok with the wessel, feels much better with the Sebo though. The Sebo is a much better P/N, but I have heard rumors that Sebo is going to stop making this P/N. But we will see. You know how rumors are in the vacuum world.

Patriot..Simply the best

I am a huge fan and have owned more than 10 different high end vac's. None stack up to the Patriot, and they really do a great job. I own the green model and just made a deal on a 2010 Red model (both have the 6 wheels) and are easy to maneuver and clean with. I wont knock any other brands, but I have put my Patriot against some of the others I own and no comparison in results. I am very happy with my Patriots and will never buy anything else . Thanks Schoettler Reseacrh & Engineering.

Welcome to VacuumLand!

How do the Patriot compare to AirStorm & TriStar CXL?

I would like to own a Patriot someday; but there aren't any dealers in South TX

Floor 0 Matc (thanks)

Thanks for the welcome Eric. I sent ya an email. Funny, I still have an anniversary Tristar and used it along with my Kirby the night before my first Patriot was delivered. I did a great job with both the Tristar and the Kirby (so I thought) I almost filled the bag in the Patriot the next day, so I became an immediate fan. Not looking back, nor knocking any other brands, just saying..Patriot is the only vac I will ever own again,

I meant to say I will sell either the newer Kirby or the newer Patriot. I do not have
either on ebay, nor will I. If one of our members wants a great deal..hit me up.
