Hard to say with those things, but that one looks from the sixties. Newer models had a little "trapdoor" on the bottom that you'd open to let the dirt fall out. The fact that this one has more of a "bucket" (plus the exposed fuse on the motor housing) says to me that it's older. Most of these Pullman units were a blue color like yours, but the ones they made in the late 80's shortly before they got out of the CVS business were cream with red lettering. Here's a picture of a newer Pullman with the 'trapdoor'. Also note the control box on the side that the fat cord from the motor unit plugs into. The box housed the relay and transformer.

Pullman BIV 102

I picked one of these up last year. Even though its may years old the gent I bought it from claimed it was new and never used. This appeared to be the case so I bought it.

However it did not have a relay/transformer box along with it. He may have had it but did not know it.

Is it possible to get one or a relay/transformer similar that can work on this old unit?
