Hey Guys,

I'm going through a period of downsizing and have a few machines I'd like to sell. eBay fees have gone insane recently, plus I'd like to sell to fellow collectors anyway.

*Kenmore Destiny 12 amp. I believe it's a 1998 model. Great cosmetic condition, but needs a new belt.

*Hoover TurboPower 4900 Twin Chamber Bagless. Also in great shape, but it doesn't filter pet hair well. All the seals are in good shape, but it just can't keep fine dog hair inside the dust cup.

*Hoover Concept 1 Blue. One of the later ones with the huge power drive handle. Also needs new belts.

*Sharp "Light and Powerful" An odd machine from the early 2000s. It takes some force to recline the handle, but the motor sounds healthy.

I'll be happy to post pictures if anyone is interested. Send me offers, and I'm not looking for much with the Concept and Sharp. I just want those out of here. I'll do the best I can to keep shipping costs down, so it will likely be through FedEx Smartpost.

May I see some photos of the Sharp Light and Powerful please?

For some reason they look really compressed on here. I can send originals if you would like.

Is the machine in need of any repair? It looks to be in pretty good shape.

The handle doesn't always want to recline, but if you place pressure in the right place it will go down. I haven't been able to find a replacement belt for it. The length between the brush roll and pulley is huge. My guess is a used Windtunnel belt might do it.

Looks very nice, I have 2 questions though. Does the HEPA filter housing have the little release button near the bottom? I know some Fantoms/Kenmores are always missing it. And is the top of the handle broken at all?

The handle is in fantastic condition. It looks like the HEPA release button is still there. I'll be sure to leave it alone though.

I just noticed you're in Hawaii. Shipping could get pretty expensive. Feel free to email me.

Email sent.

Yeah that's the bad part about living in Hawaii, shipping can be a real PITA.

I would be interested in the Kenmore if it hasn't been sold yet.

I'm so sorry about the delay, but I still have it. We're only a state apart so shipping will be reasonable. Shoot me an email if you're still interested!
