Steve,

That would be a Jet99. Manufactured by a company in New England under the trade mark -


Whoops!!!

You almost made me say it....

It is a brand that I am no longer allowed to mention here on VacuumLand.

However, if you look to the right, marked (E)_____________, You will see who made that machine. The name also appears below next to the upright, marked (K)______________.

The wheels were kinda "cheap", and were added as somewhat of an afterthought. The base of the machine was originally constructed to be without wheels, but a cart(with wheels)and with an additional bumper could be purchased that the machine sat in. In addition, when they added the wheels, the company did not reinforce the base and any sharp drops from say, knee height would cause the wheels to either break or the socket they were attached to to bend. This made the wheels somewhat turn in, and maneuverability would be compromised.

The machine itself, had a very powerful motor and developed great suction. However, airflow was somewhat restricted due to design, and some would say that it was not a very good cleaner.
