Hello, I have two machines I would like to trade for a Hoover Convertible.

The first one is a Hoover Concept Two. It runs great, has good agitation. The power drive works good. The helpmate handvac works good. The machine has some scuffs, and other signs of typical wear. The headlight lense is not entirely secure, and is held on by tape. It has a Hoover Z bag in it.

The second one is a Eureka Cordaway. It runs great as well. Great beater bar action on the carpet. The variable speed control switch doesnít seem to work, so itís stuck in one speed. The bag is not original, but in good shape. It has a new F&G bag in it.

Let me know if you are interested in trading a Hoover Convertible for these machines.

Nice Eureka Cordaway! Just FYI: the brush roll is a replacement as well - the original part would have been a Vibra-Groomer with metal beater bars.

Is there any particular Hoover Convertible model that you are looking for?

I prefer the older late 50s-early 70s ones, but I am open to any Convertible.

The cord reel on the Eureka powertouch is not working. There is a youtube video of it on youtube. Buyer be ware, Caveat Emptor!

Yes my bad, I meant to mention the cord reel not working properly.
Sorry about that.

Here are the videos of each machine.
