The Model E

is very lightweight, weighing in at 17 lbs. When you compare that to the backbreaking weight of its predecessor, the Model LX (37 lbs with cord winder, companion & attachments) you can see why they were pleased to boast about their new "lightweight champ." The only Electrolux that weighs less than the Model E is the dainty Model S, which weighs 15 lbs.

Just out of curiosity, what does your 1956 Thrift model "T," and model XX weigh?

Thrift model and XX

The Thrift model weighs the same as the E - the body material, size & thickness are the same as the E - the only thing lacking is the halo.

I have never weighed the XX but I suspect it weighs about the same as the XXX, about 20 lbs, since there again it's really the same machine as the XXX just different "skin." The reason the Model S weighs so much less is because the body is made of thinner-gauge metal. It is so light, yet so powerful, that if you take off the front cover and back, turn it on and stick to a smooth wall, it will stay there!
