I bought this lovely H84 for $25. The original fill tube was cracked and paper bag was FULL, it was a mess behind that zipper! The outer bag is clean and unit is in pretty nice shape for it's age though. I took off the bag and tossed it in the washing machine, washed the emptor, tossed the original fill tube in the garbage, and ordered some new goodies! They finally came today! (damn Canada post strike!)

After several weeks WAITING for the parts (Canada Post strike) I finally get to drive my machine. :)

Not as pretty a face as a Classic or Tradition, but still a bad ass vacuum cleaner! Motor runs great and it's quieter (lower pitch tone) than my G5! Works great on my basement carpet, I think the larger head helps (the G5 tries to eat the old thin carpet, H84 glides over it better)

Thanks to Kirby Needs ebay store for the parts, and thanks to you for looking!

I know you already have bags, but, the ones you want to get are the White Polypropylene bags which will breathe much better than the ones you have there which actually choke the airflow reducing performance compared to the plain MicronMagic bags, they're damned good bags, so good that I altered my Sanitaire so I could fit them (don't need that now with the ST bag setup!!)... :)

Of course, Kent (Kirby-Needs) has those bags for sale:

I should have...

I was looking at the price and not only were the poly bags more money, but shipping was a couple bucks more too for some reason. However combined shipping on all those parts changed the shipping price so I probably should have! Next time!
