It really is amazing just how much 'crud' you can pick up with a Filter Queen, they just seem to eat what ever you through at them.

I have a Filter Queen Princess 2 that I love.  May I offer a suggestion?  Follow the manuals instructions and check the filter under the cone guard.  Many times people don't replace these as they should and they get plugged up, causing the motor to overheat and burn out.  This is especially true if the prior owner ever ran it without a filter cone in place.  I've also seen cases where the prior owner just removed the filter altogether.  Better safe than sorry!

ONLY USE GENUINE FILTER QUEEN FILTER CONES!  Generic cones leak dust & can damage the motor!

Tell me again. What is the difference between a Princess and a FQ? I forgot.

AFAIK, it's the vacuum-shop version, which has a single speed motor, but it's a bit more powerful than the standard FQ motor. 10.5 amps, I think. Also, the Princess 3 has a longer hose. I don't recall how long exactly, I think either 3 meters or 10 feet.
