One Eureka model from the '90s that doesn't seem to get much notice on the VCCC boards is the Floorshow canister, hence my post here about this.

I remember seeing this model once when I went to Stark's Vacuum at NE Grand & Burnside.

I wonder if any of you Eureka fanatics have a decent-looking Floorshow canister complete with the special nozzle?

Thanks Ben,
I too would love to see one of these and know more about them.

It was an offshoot of their Mighty Mite line (3100 series) of portable canisters.

According to the Hesco parts page, there were models such as 3015A, 3020A, 3035A, 3111A, 3116A/B, 3125A/B, 3130A/B and 3140A. The models with the special motorized floor nozzle, according to the same source, were models 3015A, 3020A and 3035A.

The Floorshow 3000 series shared their dust bags ("C" type) with the initial 1982-83-introduced Mighty Mite 3100 series.

I'd guess the Floorshow (with the motorized nozzle) was Eureka's response to Hoover's Tempo 450 canister with its low-tier Powermatic nozzle - which, regardless of brand, never really caught on. I mean, did Eureka at one time (during the mid to late 1980s) contemplate selling their (top-tier) Mighty Mite series with its low-tier Roto-Matic Power Team nozzle?
