One for all you Eureka fans (I think I can hear a couple certain Hoover fans groaning in the back ground - you know who you are)....This is the Model 1945 B, almost brand new! A couple small nicks, but basically looks unused.

I couldn't get over how nice it was. I think it came from a rather vacuum-unsavvy home, since the belt was on backwards, and the outback was on backwards (no small feat). But with a quick wipe down, she looks fab.

I've got one of those, but yours is in much better shape than mine. Like most Eureka models like this, it's a real beast. The VGII brush roll has a great sound too.

Me personally I am not a die hard eureka or Hoover fan but I must say that is a real beauty. Zach

Unbelievable suction, the 5.5 amp motor was a good one!

In that second post, I was trying to say that the "outer bag" was on backwards, not sure how I got "outback". A lesson in there about martinis too early in the evening, I think.

Very pretty Eureka there. It just seems so odd to see it in your sitting room as it seems like you have a Hoover household

Eurekas in a Hoover Household

I just have to be careful not to put them in the same room together - they fight!

I just picked one of these up the other day in really good shape, I bet it'll look like brand new once I clean this thing up:) Love these vintage Eureka uprights!

Beautiful Eureka! Simple, powerful and effective. Yet not too heavy to bring up a flight of stairs to a second level or down to the rec room in the basement.
