They look heavy, and bulky, and like Kirby's cousin but they look like a cool older type of vacuum. My question is how do the attachments hook on and what kind of power do you get with the attachments? Do you take the front off like the kirby or just plug into the font like a Royal or use a converter tray like the old Hoover and Eurekas?

Well first of, the tools are interesting. You push a foot pedal and the nozle comes off automatically ( Which I think is a neat feature )

Then the tools clamp on as you would expect. As for power, at the 2007 convention, which was my first one, the theme was bisons and there was one there and when we tested the suction on the hose at full power, screaming like a jet engine, it read a whole 27' of water lift, I bet the hoover model 0 had better suction then that!

Hope this answers your questions.

Thank you. They just look like a fun type of machine and I'm sure for some who still have one and use it, it does what they want it to do. From what it told me they seem easier to use with attachments than a Kirby.

"it read a whole 27' of water lift"

27 Feet of lift? That's impressive... :P

(Unless you meant 27", cos there's a difference between ' and " when it comes to Feet & Inches!!)

Just ask if they'll take $10 for them to get them out of the way... :P
