I have been searching for a Fantom Fury for quite a long time now, specifically the 10 amp version, with the dark green collection bin, teal bumper and teal handle grip.

Here's the story: Sometime in the mid- to late '90s (not sure what the exact date was), my dad ordered this vacuum from an infomercial. It was our first bagless vacuum. At the time, we were living in a 2-bedroom apartment with dark brown carpeting. The Fantom was amazing! It pulled out tons of dirt and cat hair from the carpet.

The Fantom Fury remained in use until the summer of 2001, when we moved to our current home. Apparently, the cord became damaged and the vacuum became unusable. So we probably threw out the entire machine. I never saw it again.

Anyway, I'm looking for a 10 amp Fantom Fury in fully working condition. No broken parts and must have all the attachments. I'm willing to pay for shipping.

Please let me know!

If you can't find a working one...

I do have one with a bad motor. Figured I would just throw that out there in case you decide you want a fixer-upper :)

No thanks

I've never done electrical repairs to a vacuum cleaner.

I'll look out

If you want me to, I can look for one. Then I can refurb it for you. It will cost $100 to refurb it from the ground up. Let me know if you are up for it.

Yes please!

I would definitely be interested in a refurbished 10 amp Fantom Fury. How much would shipping cost?

I sell refurbished Fantoms starting out at $100
Thunder/original $120- Fury $100- Cyclone XT $110- Lightning $100- Wildcat $120
Here is what I do to all models:
-Test
-Disassemble
-Deep clean
-Polish (Waxing and repairing: takes about 6 hours)
-Preform Motor tests
-Repair motor if need be
-Clean motor
-Reassemble
-test
-Replace Belt, Filter, brush roll, attachments
As for the shipping
The shipping fee is $50, shipping weight kills the price
I also can strip down the Fantom to fit in a smaller box
(That will require you to reassemble it when it arrives)
If you go that route, the shipping fee may be less, so you would get a quote when I get the shipping info.

I also take Fantoms to refurb also. If you own a Fantom that you want refurbed, then you can send it to me for the refurb.

The price will depend on what model you want refurbed
And you need to cover shipping

Hope I helped out!

Wow

That's quite a rigorous refurbishment process!

I'd like the Fantom to fit in a smaller box. I won't mind reassembling it when it arrives. What would shipping cost for that method?

Well, to be honest it depends on two things
1. How much you want me to strip it down
2. Which mail carrier you want me to choose

I let my customers choose what mail carrier they want (USPS, UPS, FEDEX, ETC)
And I also let them choose how broken down they want the Fantom.
If they choose this route, I tear it down and balance out the box
Then number each piece to tell you which one to take out first.

The price will vary, but it can be up to $40 less then fully assembled.
To add, the only model I don't tear down is the Lightning, for obvious reasons.

1. I would just want the handle/wand and hose removed.
2. I would like to use FedEx for shipping. Apparently, they have very reasonable prices.

I need to get some money together.

FantomTechGuy,
You wouldn't happen to have any refurbed XT's would you? I'd like to find one of those. Had many over the years but sold them. Wish I had kept one. The last one I had was a cinnamon color.

I currently don't have a Cyclone XT for sale. But if you want me to I can put you on my list for a refurbed one. The price is $110 +shipping with everything refurbed on it. And you can choose how you want it shipped to minimize the shipping cost.
