Hey
I know the Kirby d80 came with a bunch of attachments. Does anyone know if one of the attachments was a handi butler or if that was sold for d50 and d80 used d50 handi butler.
Thanks in advance.

Les,

Yes, the Handi-Butler was made for both the D50 and D80, known as the "Mark IV," which continued to be available up to the Classic Omega 1CB; when revamped for the Classic III 2CB, it lost the Handi-Sharpener and wire wheel, but added the jig saw (or "Sabre Saw"). It was available in all the respective trim colors.

Les,

Handi-Butler history:
"Mark I": 1949 to 1958 (models: 509 to 518)
"Mark II": 1958 to 1962 (models: 518 to 561)
"Mark III": 1962 to 1965 (models: 562 Sanitronic and Sanitronic VII)
"Mark IV": 1965 to 1976 (models: Dual Sanitronic 50, Dual Sanitronic 80, Classic 1CR and Classic Omega 1CB)
"Mark V": 1976 to 1983 (models: Classic III 2CB, Tradition 3CB and Heritage 1HD)

Yes, the "Mark IV" design did first appear on the Dual Sanitronic 50, and the same applied to the Dual Sanitronic 80.

Les,

Yes, the D80 version came in green (and the Classic and Classic Omega versions in brown and rosewood, respectively) but it is still identified as "Mark IV."
