Hi,

Here is what I gathered as evidence on these old Royal Heavy Duty Commercial vacuums that were sold through the spring of 1987:

Models 605, 605A and 608 are related to the 880 in that they have the deluxe headlight. Model 608 replaced the 605A for 1977.

Model 611 is related to the 602 due to the shape of its nozzle and headlight.

Model 606 is related to the 801, again, due to the shape of its nozzle and headlight.

Model 611 Headlight

Model 611 headlight and nozzle - note how this is essentially the 602 in commercial clothing.

Model 606 Headlight/Nozzle

And note how the 606's headlight and nozzle looks similar to the 801:

I like the thinner nozzle on that 611.

And Finally, the 605/608 vs. 880

Thank you for complimenting! If I were to find a HDC Royal upright, I'd get the 608 from the 1985-87 period.
