This is a tread to talk about some obscure Kirby accessories such as the Shag King, Heritage II shakeout bag and Heritage II small nozzle.

I would love to find the saber saw with my classic III and Tradition. That would pretty much complete those. To me that's a pretty obscure.

The haircutting clipper set, made by Wahl for the Kirby Heritage, would be pretty rare to find. I don't think they would have sold too many of those.

Was that Haircutting clipper air driven? I've never seen one.

I have one. Yes, it's a turbo tool. Works on any model Kirby. I wear my hair very short, and I've saved a fortune with it, and never a mess. I do disassemble it once a year for a good cleaning.

Yes, it was air driven. It's correct name was the Kirby Turbo Groom. Here's a link to a old Vacuumland thread that has a picture of one.

i have two heritages,one with the small floor has the orange shake out bag,the other has the gray one. i just adore them.i also plan to change the bag topper to an older style on the orange one also. it's just a matter of liking that style better.
