I went to my local thrift store looking for vacuum gems and found a Handi-Butler from a Kirby Classic.
I can't wait to use it.

Nice find! I love Handi-butlers! I have three: one for a kirby tradition, my kirby Dual-sanitronic 80, and one for a Kirby model 517. The dual-80 one is new in box!

Sweet, the HB is the best tool for the Kirby, well, the real one, not the later Sentria re-hash of the idea... :)

Just one thought, is it a 1CR version or 1CB (Omega) version?

To David, that's my brother's name. Good name, David.
This HB is for the Classic 1CR. I'd like to add the Classic Omega 1CB to the collection someday.

Should be okay on the D50, D80 and of course 1CR... :)

Not sure which mode it activates though, Hose or Floor, I'd guess that it's Floor though...

Justin, thats a good find there! I'm surprised someone wouldn't have tried to sell that on Ebay....

Oh well, maybe they were uneducated or couldn't be bothered with the hassle. But thats good for you though. :)

Let know how it works out for you! I have one for a Model 510 but I haven't gotten around to trying it out. It's already been well used, so I don't have a problem using it myself. Some day!
