The main difference ....

vacbear58's profile picture
As far as I am aware, is that the 100 was in production from 1968 - 1970 the 101, also known as the Luxomatic, was produced in 1974 which was midway through the production run of the 330 - not one but two models later. According to my records it was supplied with a "de-luxe" flip over tool as used on the 94, rather than the combination floor nozzle shown, although that was correct for the Automatic 100. I wonder if the hose is original also, as the 100 had the suction control/"butterfly" dusting-upholstery nozzle on the hose handle. This hose looks more like that from the 80/91 models. These nit-picking comments aside its a lovely cleaner, one of the most elegant Luxes in my opinion, and it looks like it is in great condition. Happy Christmas
PS What is the motor wattage? The 100 was 550watts.

Doesn't get any better than an Electrolux for Christmas.

I'm so curious - why do so many Electrolux vacs have a "z" in their model number? Have never understood why.....

Do you have any pictures of the adverts for it?

Rating plate

vacbear58's profile picture
If it was like the 100 the rating plate should be on the bottom, between the runners, towards the back of the cleaner. It should be rivited on, but maybe by 1974 they might have moved to adhesive labels - I dont have a 330 or 345 to hand to compare with at this moment. Does the name plate on the top behind the cover release say Luxomatic or something else?

I dont have any adverts for the 101 or even the 100 come to that, just the instructions for the 100, which was my Mum's cleaner. I can forward a copy or post them on here if you would like to see them.

Lovely vac there James, I see one other difference between my Z100 is the silver exhaust grill, I wonder if the Z101 was produced in Sweden to supplement stock as around that time there was a lot of industrial action...

Cheers, Mike
