I found this Lindhaus on the curb next to an empty bagless vacuum box (hoover i think). Of course the cord had been robbed off of it as were the vast majority of the vacuums out there.
I took it home took it apart and cleaned it out the motor had some rust on the fan cover, the clutch assembly may need replacing, the belts are somewhat loose, the base plate is broken, the post motor filter holder is also missing so clearly it still needs some work.
I will say it's a pretty nice machine despite all the broken or worn parts on it. Eventually it will be completely fixed up and added to the rest of them.

My friend and i saw a lot of vacuums out this year, a lot of Eureka Victories, a few Orecks (one which had it's handle completely snapped off) some shop vacs a few kenmores i was actually hoping to find a windsor sensor or Sebo essential G but the Lindhaus is still a good find

If they treat their new vacuum with this type of care it won't last more than a few months

That looks like a really nice vacuum! I tried out the Diamante once (the dual motor version) and it worked really well.

Thanks guys.

It looks like the Diamante is the same machine only with two motors vs the single motor and the clutch system.
