Hi Tom!

I'm wondering if this is another of the rare Eureka upright nozzles like the Airway. Beat up, but it does fire up. The bellows is still very pliable. Do tell! Wand is for a Filter Queen. This just sat on Ebay several lyears ago, but I had a hunch. Paid $10.00!

Yes Greg, this is for the AirWay! Are you keeping this or letting it go? I may be interested if it's for sale!

No it is not for the Air-way....

Because the one for the Airway was marked as such. This one bears the Eureka name, and was created for the large commercial Eureka canister. Phillip Muller is the only other one who has one of these.

Let's wait and see what Tom says! I did point out that this has a Filter Queen wand on it! G

Jason is correct. There are several odd things that point to this perhaps being a vac shop "throw together" from parts they could order. For instance, The hood has a cut out for the handle pivot. If that had been made by Eureka either for an airway or one of their commercial canisters, there would've been no cut out in the hood for the handle pivot. Eureka would not have had access to a filter queen Wand. It appears to me that a repair shop ordered the rear portion with the handle release pedal, added it to an existing eureka upright, and added The filter queen wand.

I wish I had the canister to go with mine.
Very nice find. It's nice to see another one of these even if it was thrown together.

Thanks Andy but this particular one went to a commercial Eureka of some sort. That's what I'm seeking.

OK shot in the dark here but is this the canister that this power nozzle would go to? Or at least similar?

That is exactly the Eureka commercial canister that the power nozzle sitting on the table would have gone to.

Well, I asked the Shop owner to look in back. I had it confused with an Electrolux CB tht had been painted and parted out.

Tom about what year would this canister be from? Is it possible this could be before Eureka introduced their regular power nozzle in 72?

Yes, this was before Eureka introduced their Power Nozzle. Don Clark first asked them to build this for his Air Way distributorship, since Eureka was already building them for the Commercial Canister (think 1968). Air-Way's first power nozzle was a Hamilton Beach upright with a wand, but that didn't last too long as the machine was very cheaply made. The Eureka upright as Power Nozzle lasted until about 1973 when Air-Way made the RugMaster power nozzle themselves. Air-Way distributorships COULD continue to buy the Eureka nozzle if they wished, as they were independent distributorships.

So can this make the Air-Way tandem air? Does it have another suction fan in the nozzle?

Yes the eureka and Airway version of this had it's own suction fan. It's a full Eureka upright but with a wand and bellow in place of the bag.
It really was not a very good design as the airflow of the upright was to much and the canister struggled to keep up with it. (My Opinion anyway)
I demoed one time the whole set up on a rug and it did an ok job sort of lifting the edge of the rug, then I took the airway hose off and the power head by itself really beat and shook that rug and lifted it up off the floor. All that aside it's still a lot of fun to play with and I'm very pleased with mine.

Just finally got my 405C - B cleaned up so I thought I'd add it here. It could really stand to be sanded and repainted but I don't want to lose all the original labels.

Doug,
do you know about what year yours is from?

All I know is late 60s no exact date. Wish there was some way to tell.

If anyone is interested, the power head/nozzle is still available. $75.00 plus shipping. If no takers by Sunday it goes to the scrapper! Greg

Seriously?

I am confused. You bought a cobbled together head that languished on EBay for $10.00. Now you hold it hostage for $75.00 plus shipping or you will throw it away. Why not offer it for what you have into it or just donate plus the cost of shipping? I do not like to make replies like this, but it just didn't make sense.
