Hey guys,
picked up a hoover constellation up today. Its body is in good condition and i cant bealive how small they are. Suppose because the last one i saw was when i was 8 years old.

Bit of upsetting news, the hose end has a crack all down the side that curves to the mmiddle. Wondering if the end can be replaced or anyone has a spare hose?
Please contact me if you do

Hey jacob - this is the hoover constellation model 862. 580 watts, 0-60 cycles and was made in great birtain. Its in pink and white and really cleans well for 580 watts. It hovers best on short pile carpet and hardfloor and is clean inside and out. Motor runs great and new dust bag was fitted.
I really love it to bits and will join my senior,junior and dustette.
