today i got a cleaner I have been looking for, for over 15 years. This cleaner was made in the late seventies early eighties. This is a dutch brand called Holland Electro. In the usa thehad i think one model called arrow electro.

The cleaner was the dutch answer to Nilfisk. The problem was it was to expensive, for the dutch buyer, and the Nilfisk was a to big success for a honest competition.
The result was that Holland Electro counted their losses and stopt producing it after almost a year.

I knew of its existence together with 2 other dutch collectors, but none of us had seen one for real before. A visitor of my web site did read the wanted section on my site, and wrote to me that he had one in the garage. I could have it, but only in exchange because he needed a cleaner in the garage.

end of the matter I traded it for a Nilfisk ;-))

Thats a very handsome vac Edgar! I love a tub vac, I can sort of see someone using it in a shop or something, it looks very commercial. I also love to hear storys like that one, always very interesting lol
