Itís packaged very well, lots of catalogs. Looks like something youíll see from price matching, which I donít like at all.

I purchased a vintage Hoover Decade 80 vacuum from eBay in a decent price! When I first saw this, I think it was $50 before and then a few minutes later I noticed the price went down to $40 or best offer! The shipping was $25 so I made my best offer of $35, which makes the total of $60. Not bad. But anyways this is my 1st Decade vacuum to my collection. I feel pretty good about this.

One more thing, I ordered 2 new Hoover Concept lightbulbs from eBay and I thought it would work on Convertibles and Decades but sadly this one doesnít fit so I gotta try to find the correct ones and Iíll post another pic of my Decade 80 with a new lightbulb. And I thought the Decades use 2 lightbulbs but they only use one so Iím thinking about returning these or keeping them for a Concept One/II or Powermax.

And I also put on the hose with the tool converter and the check the suction and I was amazed! The hose suction on the Decade 80 is kinda strong than my Convertibles and Concepts! I mean like HOW?! Is there a way to give my Convertibles and Concepts stronger suction?

The Decade 800 series has 2 lightbulbs so I would definitely think that your Decade 80 would be the same.

I had a tan Decade 80 in the past and I'm 95% certain that unit had 2 headlight sockets. This makes me wonder if the motor on your unit was replaced???

Actually no the motor was never replaced. I double checked and I was wrong, it does have 2 sockets so I ordered another LED lightbulb right away a couple of days ago.
