Found this at an estate sale, gave her a spa treatment & new belt & she looks pretty good for her age. Always wanted one of these as a kid. It even came with the attachments which look as if they were only ever used a couple of times. I grabbed it & took it to the checkout table, the lady running it said "I think there is a box of attachments that go with it". So back down to the basement I went & found them in another room, almost passed them by, I was just excited to find the electrikbroom on the first trip thru. But the attachments too, that made my day. And for half price which was a whopping $2.00!!! The serial # is 334M so from what I read in other posts, it was manufactured April 3 1983. The date stamp inside on the power nozzle motor is June 30 1983

I love it! picks up a surprising amount of dirt too considering the size of the motor. Seems the power nozzle is overly noisy & rattles though. I have cleaned it up & greased the bearings. Maybe just the way they were & the fact its very old brittle plastic??

Very nice find, I've always wanted one also. Infact a few weeks ago I was at an indoor flea market and there was one behind acounter, the woman wouldnt sell it to me, she said she uses it to vaccum her booth =(
Good luck with it. I recall they were quite rattly even when newer.

I have always wanted one of those. How well does this work with the attachments? Does this have good suction?

I have a power nozzle model as well and I love it! Mine is not as big as that though. It was my grandparents friend's and it always sat in his garage. I loved to look at it and was always fascinated by the round bag. He finally gave it to me when I was in 3rd or 4th grade. After a new power nozzle was put in it a few years ago, it has become a daily vacuum for the kitchen! They are very agressive.

Thanks for the compliments guys.

Andy, the suction I would say is so so, not real great but enough. I might compare it to the suction of an Dirt Devil handvac which I had back in the day that had attachments.

Chase, do you have any pics of your model? Would like to see them if you do.
