Here are my 2 most recent eureka finds. The first is the mint condition Eureka Precision that i got from the thrift store for $30 and its missing the bumber): but everything on it works and i polished all the plastic. the motor housing was caked with drywall dust so i cleaned everything out and now it runs like new. The second is my Eureka 3710a. i go this for free from my sisters friends grandpa. he was going to throw it out but i told him i would take it. it has all the attachments, except the dusting brush (but i will be getting one soon). the motor runs flawlessly in this machine and it has great suction.
Enjoy the pic, there are more to come of these machines!(;

Very nice Eurekas Trevor!   Sometimes thrift stores can be a treasure trove.

Beautiful...that canister has one of the last carpet nozzles to proudly display the Eureka Williams "E" logo!

I guess the Precision is basically a self-propelled Ultra with a cord I correct? Or is there something else that differentiates the two 1980's models?
