This is my grand-nephew Bentley helping his Gramma clean the house next-door which was just vacated by her daughter. (After her daughter's husband - my brother - passed away, she decided to sell the large four-bedroom house and move in with her mother in her large house where no one else was living.)

Smart kid! And a good choice in sweeper! My grandmother would have been proud to see another generation recognizing Electrolux for their quality!

Awww, what a adorable pic! And not only does the little guy have good taste in vacuums, he's learning good cleaning skills & habits at a young age. Never too early to teach the young ones! :-)

He's doing a GREAT job!Like how someone provided him with only one wand section.He will grow into the next one before you know it!

'lightest weight,heavy duty vacuum'

The Model L is one the one of the greatest Electrolux ever.I find that I am using 3 now in different areas including the workbench.
The machine end of the hose above needs its swivel lock before the pigtail cord is worn or broken.Or just unplug the PT cord if not using the Power Nozzle or Sidekick.

Model L

Adorable! The model L has always been one of my favorites over the years as mom bought one brand new in 1973 and still has it to this day. It has a replaced hose section with the original ends and a swapped out but original grey Electrolux cord but is otherwise bone stock and still going as strong as ever. I have all 4 generations of the L in my collection the white, brown, turquoise and gold and sometimes juggle between them for use.

Reminds me o f me cleaning whit my grand ma Compact Electra C9 vacuum . when i was a kid his age .I learn to vacuum and cleaning from my mom and grand mother she had the c9,i helped her out every time she ask. She told me take your time let he machine pick up the dust, dont go fast do a good job and thought me how to maintain it . She often ask me try it out check it over for me .Its strong air flow will do the trick .Bring back memories . Good choice of vacuum a model L cant beat a lux or compact .
