Here are a couple vacs that I left behind. Any thoughts on them? Both are supposed to be running but didn't test. The heritage can be had for about $40. No idea on the other machine.

That heritage

Has some very early rug renovator parts machines I believe to be 505-515. That Omega is missing the bumper for the light. The heritage looks like a good buy. The Omega looks like u should look at it better. It looks beat up. Your call.

I didn't recognize the rug renovators. The omega looks pretty beat. Thanks. I'll pass.

Not too bad...

That Omega does not look tooo bad. In fact that was kinda how mine looked before I took the polishing wheel to it! It came out like new.

That Heritage looks to have the bag assy you need to run the HEPA micron magic bags (like you wanted for your Classic III)

And that is not even an Omega but rather a Classic 1CR (1970-73)! The headlight cap gives that away.

I picked up a bunch of stuff today for the classic III. I posted pics of them on thread of my classic III. I now have a great classic III bag and a paper filter heritage bag. I could not figure out the classic 1CR. It sort of looked like an Omega.

I was going to point out that that isn't an omega but a classic, however someone beat me too it. I sure could use that classic III bag laying on top of that box. What kind of place is this?

That machine is not a Heritage, It is a Legend II and those heads in front of it don't even fit it... Just saying..
