Yesterday. I was very exitedto finally find something there there was also a really beat up Hoover elite there too. Now I know this is the highest version of the concept 2. Any other details on this machine?

Love the on-board covered tool-box!!!! I donít think itís top of the line though, because it does not have the cord reel as the high-end Concepts had.

I think some of these were variable speed also with a bar with lights on top of the tool box.

This is a nice find! I saw one at a thrift store a few years ago, but it was maroon.

The brush strips are kinda worn Down on this machine. Does anybody know where I can get replacement brush strips or even a new brush roll?

These never had cord winders as far as Iím aware the tool caddy area left no room for it, same with the Concept 2.

ďWhatís all this talk about snatches?Ē Well it seems to be standard in the world of vacuum collecting, lots of talk about snatches but minimal interest in actually encountering one!

Not necessarily true...

I do understand that I might have a minority opinion on the matter.

Hence my saying little interest, speaking of the group as a whole, the number of interested parties are minimal, yet still very much there!
