OH MY!!!

I have the Nilfisk, but other than the Singer have never even heard of the others! Wish some of those could be found here!

The Excelsior 9000 bears a stiking resemblence to the old Whirlpool Imperial from the late 50's. Does anyone else see that?

We had a version of the 8020 here badged as a Kenwood, although perhaps an earlier version as the floor nozzle is different, and it has a braided hose. It sounds just like an Electrolux. It has the same unusual "ball" hose connector. I knew it was of Dutch origin, but good to see its "parantage"

I will post some pictures later

just done a repair..

on a Nilfisk very similar to that for someone at work. It turned out that the carbon brushes were worn/burned up but the motor was a sealed unit and the brushes didn't apprear to be available as a separate part. The machine had probably seen considerable use; anyway I managed to file down some suitable carbons off something else and solder on the leads through the brush springs. After some persistance shaping them and scratching the commutator surface through the brush guides, it worked a treat!

I like the Nilfisk with the Power Nozzle, with the extra handle! That PN looks like a beast,,probablly need that extra handle to steer it!

Wooooow! More brochure anyone? LOL...

Nice brochures Edgar, love the design of the old Excelsiors, I have a couple of Tornados that looks exatly to the Signal 8120 and the red&black one shown on the last page, just some very little differences.
I never know about the nilfisk PN, very cool!

It does sort of resemble the WP's and Kenmores Alan.
The stick vac Rapier 650 is quite similar to the Electrolux Tri Vac as well.

Really like that Nilfisk "Silver Bullet" ad-and the aux handle on the powernozzle wand is interesting.The machine shown looks very much like the one a cleaning contractor left at my workplace-almost got it.It didn't have the powernozzle-just a hose,bare floor tool and wand.

nilfisk p/n

edgar's profile picture
The nilfisk p/n was only available for a short period of time. YOu needed a special power cord that had a splitter on the end were it goes in the machine. so it runs on a normal power that is supplied directly from your home instead of the machine. the steering part on the wand was an attachment for long people with back issues.
