Hi !

I'm new here and write from France :-)

I love Hoover Sensotronic and have 3 of them :

- a Sensotronic System 30 (S 3456) with power nozzle Turbo 300, remote control, and another nozzle called Super Contour,

- a Sensotronic Total System 500 (S 3730) with power nozzle Turbo 300, remote control, and another nozzle called Contour Plus

- and a third one I received yesterday from a friend of mines. And I have a lot of questions about it. It looks like Sensotronic range 100 ->500, with little changes : the remote control is different from the one I have on the Total System 500 : there's only 3 buttons (on/off, B (for booster), and a third one to change the power of suction. It has the nozzle Contour Plus and the Turbo 300 too. It has 4 "gears" and the booster. The tool's cover is different from the Total System 500 one, and the button for the electric cord isn't flat as it is on the Sensotronic Total System 500.
The name of this vacuum is "Hoover Sensotronic 1600 W Booster" and its reference is SC 060. It's grey.
As it's written on the vacuum, it was built on June 1992, and my friend bought it as a Christmas gift 1992. Her mother used it one time (the vacuum looks like really new) and said it was too heavy for her and never used it a second time. Her mother died in the first days of 2012 and my friend decided to give me this vacuum with the original box of 10 H7 bags (9 unused !).

Have you ever heard something about this third vacuum ?

I'll send pictures tomorrow ; it'll be easier for you :-)

Thanks a lot for your answers and sorry for my english ;-)

Hi Stef. I'm sure you will fit in well here.

I like the Hoover Sensotronic range to esp the 100/200/300/400/500 series
I have a Hoover Sensotronic 20 and Sensotronic 500.

Your third Sensotronic sound like to me one of the very last sensotronic that can out just before the launch of the Alpina series. I don't think they was out long at all compared to the earlier Sensotronics and the Alpinas that followed the sensotronic range.

Be nice to see the pics of it to see if it is the last of the sensotronic range.

Your english seems good to me:o)

What other vacuum cleaners do you own?

Hi, Yep I thought it was. It's one of the very last models of sensotronic.
I think I have a pic in one of my brochures of two of that late Sensotronic range that was avalible in the UK. One was a blue/grey colour and the other was a white/cream colour.

Great vac and nice to see it:o) It would be nice to see pics of your other vacs.

Hi !
I'll take pics of the System 30 and the Miele. The Alpina stays at the office and the System 500 is opened for the moment : I'm waiting for new carbon brushes !
