They oxy 3 was never ment to come to South Africa. Only when a order was sent to the east by mistake was it offered to us instead of a return trip all the way to europe. So they landed in Cape Town and were Duly sold by Electrolux. I had one some years ago but sold it. I have wanted one ever since again and a recent large purchase of shop soiled vacuums from Electrolux got me 3. One I have kept, One went to a friend and the last one is been sold on y showroom floor.

I love the colour and the quietness of this vacuum I also love the dust brush

The underside you can see it was designed not to scratch wooden flooring.

Gsheen..

Its really nice to see some posts from you dude. I hope all is well.

 

I have just recieved that exact model of the ultraone. How powerful? How quiet?

 

I want to get a good set of small tool and then i think it will be a new favourite.

 

Those "twin clean" heads are brilliant. probably one of the best straight suction tools i have used.

 

Keep the machines coming!

Do you know what the difference apart from colour is between the Ultraactive and Ultraperformer. They are the same in design with the same attachments and the same motor wattage. So what are the differences? any idea's ?

Well here in the UK the UltraActive was badged Electrolux and the UltraPerformer came after badged as AEG so maybe it was just a marketing exercise? Have you tried the UltraCaptic? Once the price falls I will get one.
