I got this wonderful Riccar 8905 at one of the local Vac Shops for $60 yesterday. It needed a pretty good cleaning but it turned out great! It came with all of the attachments as well as a package of bags. It was purchased new in 2005, so it is less than 7 years old. I will probably be using this quite a bit!

I hope you enjoy it. I have several Riccars, including one that looks identical you yours. They are very good vacuums! Good score.

Was riccar originally a Japanese company? They look so similar to early 80"s National Panasonic vacuums

Riccars used to be rebadged panasonics, based on the Dial a matic design.

Oh really? Riccars are made in the USA. Being made in the USA, with Japan, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand means long-lasting machines.
