Hey guys! it's been a little while, but I wanted to say hi and show you a few things ive come upon in the past few days. excuse the image quality- despite how great the iphone's camera is rumored to be, i've found it to be kind of crappy

first, I've seen this brandywine eureka being used to clean the building in which my SAT prep class is located. The picture doesnt do it justice, but with the exception of the headlight lens, it is in really good condition! they even have an extension cord attached to the original cord (which they leave wound- trust me ive been quite observant of its use haha), so i imagine the cord is in good condition. It sounds really good too! i really want to offer to buy it off of them, but lord knows how that would be taken around here. Do these have the "magic-touch" power switch or whatever it is called? By the frequency it gets turned on and off when they are cleaning the hallway rugs i can only imagine it does, but I didn't observe it up close for too long, maybe next week

i dont know if any of you are familiar with the store tuesday morning, but it is an overstock store of sorts, and today they happened to have a large number of vacuums, mostly dirt devils, eurekas, and vacs of that sort. But they also had 2 prolux's for $200, and one of the sanitaire clones made by oreck for $150. I was sooooo tempted to buy a prolux, but im trying to save up for some photo equipment.

pardon the blur, this was on a high shelf that even i (im 6'3') had to reach to see. I thought it was funny because i dont remember ever seeing panasonic vacuums being sold around here within the past 10 years. I recall seeing the riccar-esque clean air machines when i was little, but nothing of the plastivac nature. can anybody make out enough in the picture to tell me about this machine?

This is the Panasonic in your last picture. I was really tempted to get one when they first came out but they feel quite cheap. The Kenmores are better made.

ESP switch

I think this is to late for switch in hand grip.Looks very nice to be in commercial use.Original bag would have been matching vinyl.
