Well hello,
I bought a really neat vacuum that I have never seen or herd of in my life but had to have it. I took it to Jason's house this weekend along with a few others vacuums to show off. He took some pictures of the turbotronic for me to post. It says it's a Heavy Duty Commercial vacuum and it has a sturdy design and a powerful 7amp motor. The power head is like that of the Filter Queen. I am guessing by the style of the cleaner that it is from the early 1970's? ( any info would be great ) Tania says it is made by Metro who is still making vacuums today similar to this. This vacuum is awesome. One thing that's kind of different is the red paint isn't pain but a fabric like the Lux 30. Well enough small talk her she is.

The power head.
The power head isn't in as good of condition as the vacuum. The little motor was so full of dirt that is kind of caught fire for a second because of all the lint it the carbon brushes but no fear, I can service it and if the motor is bad I can put another Filter Queen pn motor in it. Pay no attention to any scratches or marks as I haven't done a spa treatment on her yet.
