Vortech Force XR3000 2012 Model .

I love it a really cool looking canister. Has Varible speed soft start motor .

Hepa Filtration , and extra hose non-electric for attachment cleaning .

Wessell Powernozzle that really deep cleans . Very well made commercial

quality vacuum . I like it better than my Miele capricorn seems much better

built . Italian commercial / industrial company . An improved version of TriStar

in my opinion. I also own the Model prior to this I will have to dig it out and

post pictures of it also .

I like it,too-WANT ONE--There is a man who was a former Vortech dealer-he owes a debt to me-now if I could have him get me one of those--the debt would be settled!

From the pictures it appears that the vacuum end of the hose has been changed to quick connect? I had the previous version and liked it a lot. The Wessel Werk power nozzle is great and I did like having the 2nd lightweight hose.

Gary The Hose

kirbyloverdan's profile picture
has two buttons you push in to release it . The lid has a bag check indicator an orange floaty thing . You got good eyes just like me lol . I think it is a great improvement over the old style even though I thought it was perfect once they added the wessell PN .

So the hose is quick connect now and there is no pigtail cord? How did they do that with the flip up lid?

Thanks Danny. I'm curious as to how the direct connect works with the lid being the flip up style. The hose looks longer now also. Is it still the gas pump style handle?

You know how I feel though I prefer Water Vacuums to keep the dust down .

Yes we do get a lot of water filter vacuums but most are rubbish. especially the ones from walmart. We have tons in our store room totally trashed.

 

The rittello I don't think its very good. not well made like the rainbow, plastic is cheap build quality not great either , already had a few in with damaged motors , & broken casings .

I will post what I find tomorrow if we arent flooded out. lol we got 8 inches of rain and tonight we are supposed to get 3 more. Sadly there was a fatality in my neighborhood last night do to flooding.

Hi Dan,
Just got off the phone with my Thermax supplier. I can get you the AF-2 for $799.99
The electric steam clener and pump are an extra $200.00 if you want that. The pump plugs into the power nozzle port but the cleaing head is just straight suction.
That's 799.99 including tax of 8.55 percent. I could see if they would ship it to you to save shipping cost.


Most of the dealers sell this for 1399.99 plus more for the steam cleaner and some have it as high as 2399.99.
I have been showing them for a flat price of 999.99 with a free Minimax air freshener aka the same as the Rainbow rainmate. A $65.00 value. I have never sold the steam cleaner because I'm not happy that it doesn't have a rotating brush on it, but for cleaning upholstry it's damn good.

P.S. the rain has stopped and there was no more flooding last night. I wonder if any of it has been on the news? I wouldn't know as I have dish and it could be raining 6,000 miles away and I lose my signal. So needless to say I have been without t.v.

I want one!

Very jealous of that Vortech, congrats! I had the green/gray one and loved it, but there was a short in the hose that caused the hose to melt like a straw in an oven! Searched all over the internet to see if I could find one of the XR 3000 units, but it appears you may have snagged the only one listed on eBay for awhile? Definitely going to keep my eyes open for one of these! Any idea what kind of suction pull/waterlift?

Thank you very much . I guess I am gonna have to wait to find one on eBay . I have a limit of $400-$500 at the most for high end machines and usually like to pay less . eBay is the only place I find all the high end machines at those kind of prices . The only machines I purchase from dealers NIB are Rainbow and Kirby because I always buy the newest model every time they come out and my dealer friends sell me the machines at great prices . Why does that dealer charge tax to out of state buyers ? I am in New Jersey .

Tax???
Well I don't know why they charge tax. I have had some problems with the dealers lately. I think they are idiots and they get my orders wrong most of the time.
