Recently jumped on the NIB Bandwagon and purchased a NIB Heritage II. This is one of the most fun vacuums to use that I have ever owned. I love how the bag inflates (more noticeably than on the G series)and it seems like such a modernized version of the old style Kirbys.

I do have to say that I was having more trouble on this one than any other Kirby that I own to find the proper height adjustment for my carpet. The change in motor tone and 1 to 2 clicks down still did not seem to adhere to the floor and I heard tons of air flowing through the nozzle. Yet one click further down and I could not push the thing at all. I upgraded the brush roll to the ball bearing and it is MUCH better. It is both easier to push and it grooms the carpet visibly better. I am having so much fun with this

That was my favorite Kirby I ever owned! Wish I still had that bad boy.
