Here's what I brought home today from Goodwill. I gave $3 for the Eureka, $2 for the hand vac, around $1 for the Kirby accessories by weight and my favorite $2 for the vintage Kenmore Kwik Sweep! Tomorrow will bring many more. Anybody who wants any of them raise your hand.

The "air pulse" is squarely in the categorie of being a great idea on paper but utterly useless in reality.  There is a little "flapper" inside the neck of the nozzle which when engaged flutters, causing quick, momentary interuptions in the airflow, kind of like when you cover the end of a hose with your hand and then quickly pull it away.  The idea was that pulses of suction would pull up stubborn dirt better than a continuous stream of air.  All it did in reality was make the Electrikbroom even more noisy.  Nice idea, NOT.

How much for the Kirby hose? Will it fit a GSix?

That hose will fit any Kirby Generation model, though the G6 would have had a black one come with it, this gray color came with the G4. I would think that for the hose by itself, probably $5 would be fair???? Let me know. Also, if you want, I do have a full set of G4 accessories with hose and two wands that I'll part with for $15.

Sorry for the false alarm, I guess I should look for an actual gsix hose now that I know what color its supposed to be. Sorry for the false alarm :/
