A little story about that red Eureka commercial. That came from me. I do commercial cleaning and that was one of the first vacuums in the building. It was bought new when the building was built in 1990. I love these type of Eurekas but I will say I HATED this sob, It is cursed! We never got along at work and so for the past 7 years it spent most of its time in the basement closet. It had nothing wrong with it however it popped ever bag I put in it without hardly any dirt so I replaced the outer bag, didnt help. I put st bags, didnt help. Then it always spit everything out but still had full suction so I put new brush strips in it, didnt help so replaced the brush roll no improvment. Everything sounded great on this vacuum and seemed to work right to the naked eye but it was like something out of a Stephen King story for me( It was called Christene, remember that story? lol) anyhow long story short I rebuilt the whole damn thing and it still was possessed and so I gave it to Jason. I have many other Eurekas and never had a bit of trouble with them.

Hey Guys! Christine was one of my favorite movies! Perhaps she became an Atlas or a red and white Princess,LOL! BTW, I agree with you completely about the sequel! Later, Toby G.
