The 2 Windtunnels are worth $10.00 each, the rest is trash.

Both the Bissell and the Eureka Excalibur are both worth getting, if they are in good shape and run. I would definitely regret not purchasing those two. You do not want to feel that way!

Looking again at the picture I see there is an older Dirtdevil upright. Those are getting rare and might be worth something in the future.

I completely agree with bagintheback. The Eureka, Bissell, and Dirt Devil, are all pretty uncommon and worth getting, if the price is right.

Avoid the "White Westinghouse Multi Vac." These U.S vacs though, the rest of them look so super cool!

The Westinghouse is the same model as a Bissell we had in the UK in white and red buttons/catches. Desperately heavy to push by the handle and little suction.

Well, the bissell and dirt devil didn't really work ( motor sound bogged down ) and the eurekas fan was shattered. What a shame I would've loved the bissell and dirt devil! The hoovers worked well, but at 25 each, it seemed too much! (the bissell eureka and dirt devil were 8.98 but I didn't get them for the above reasons.) Wish they worked!

Motors can sound bogged down for even very simple and common issues, like a jammed belt.

Mm but the Westinghouse Multi has suction only.

The White Westinghouse reminds me of a Bissell I had, I think some were labeled as Singer. It was called a 3 in 1 and had a removable handle to use as a stick or hand vac. It also came with a removable floor tool and crevice tool and an extra filter. It was a good machine, but I rarely used it as the cord was pretty short. I later sold it in the box at a yard sale to a lady that loved it. I saw a newer version of it on sale for Black Friday at Walmart.

Too bad the Excalibur, Bissell, and Dirt Devil were broken. I liked the Excalibur as it used two motors and had a hard floor brush as well.
