You have a later model. The orginals had 10 amps motors without a HEPA filter. Are you planing to sell it?

Yes, he does have the larger model, but the smaller ones were * supposedly* a 9 amp and an 11 amp. Fantom did make a 10 amp model but it was the Fury. Btw I say supposedly because I have seen a picture of a 9 amp Kenmore Destiny, which was identical to the Fantom Thunder, and heard rumors of a 9 amp Thunder, but have never seen one. Also, yours, as you can tell, has the black inside of the collection bin, and dark purple accents. Later Thunders had a light purple inside of the bin and cyclone assembly, and the bin latch and height adjustment would be light purple also.

You even got the optional extension hose and the extra pet upholstery tool... nice! Just a warning, if you put it on youtube, you'll get about a million offers to buy it.... these things seem to have a cult following now! I did love them when they first came out.... do you have any other Fantoms?

I know absolutely nothing about them. I have read the owners manuel. This is the first I have bought and I plan on selling it. I have cleaned it completely up.

Oh! Seeing that picture reminds me of the Fantom Fury I had in the late 90s. There are no words for how much I hated that vacuum. Maybe they improved with the Thunder? I don't know.

Still, In my opinion, the Thunder is the best Fantom. Although it is heavy and clunky. Great Vacuum you got there, and cool you even got the Attachments.
