So today Neil Lubke (Henry200) and I got together to do some trading. So recently after the convention I realized how little room I actually have down here in my basement. so I assessed (or however its spelled lol) my collection and decided to downsize a little. So what I did is I traded Neil my Regina Elektricbroom, Royal powertank, And one of my F&G eureka's. And what I got in return was this AMAZINGG Kirby Heritage II! Now this is my FAVORITTEEE Kirby model and the one I have isnt in the greatest condition, so now that I have this I cant even explain how happy I truly am right now!
So thanks a TON Neil!!
Hope you enjoy your machines!

Congrats! The Heretage II is a great machine. All the attachments, too!

Of course any Kirby is a great machine. :P

That is a beautiful Kirby. Mostly all there, too. I'm not sure, but I think you might be missing a wand... Aren't you supposed to have two? Anyway, awesome looking Heritage II.

to vacuum freak

i hope im not falling inta a joke. (which im sure i am)

kirbys are big, hulking machines, using one always feels like your pushing around something more than a vacuum.

by far my most favorite brand.

to the orignal poster, i just fixed one like that, i also like its looks and color scheme.

I'm glad you like it Trevor!  As I think I told you, that Heritage II was one of the best vacuums I have ever owned.  It served me well for years as my daily driver and I never really thought about parting with it but, when you said it was your favorite model the decision to give it to you was a no-brainer.  I'll keep my eyes peeled for some wands for you and if the shoulder strap turns up I'll let you know.


The machines you gave me are great.  That Royal really sucks!  It could almost compete with my Henry.  Once I figure out how to get to the Regina dealer (that stretch of University Ave is all torn up for the light-rail construction) I'll pick up what I need to get it up and running again.


I thoroughly enjoyed seeing your collection.  You have quite a few enviable gems!
