This one I'm not familiar with; any help with identifying it as to brand and possibly model will be appreciated.

Another view of the nozzle end. Note the rocker switch pivots from side to side, not fore and aft.

That hose is from an Oreck Dutchtech DTX 1400B.

Would that term Dutchtech have any relation to the Dutch brand Philips? I ask this because the fittings look identical to Philips cleaners sold in the UK.

I have just looked it up on Google and have answered my own question. Yes they are Philips cleaners.

All above is correct.The no.1 problem with these is the swivel inlet built into the lid with electrical contacts.Bags are expensive.But a good canister with exellent powerhead and better than average attachments.

Although the UK never got to see this model of cleaner with PN, we had a good deal of Philips models like it during the 1990's and they were of very good quality. The best part of it was that the cleaners were not that expensive to buy, although of course like all manufactures, Philips offered a range of models at all price levels.
